6 Beauty Treatments That You Should Not Do Too Often

Too much of a good thing is bad, and the same goes for excess pampering your skin. Here are some treatments you should not perform regularly on your body and hair.

The pursuit of social acceptance’ can lead us to try everything, from painful waxing methods to time-consuming beautifying operations. We don’t even bother to speculate about these procedures’ potential dangers and unintended consequences. Here are some treatments you should refrain from doing regularly.

Laser Hair Removal

The success and benefits of laser hair removal operations depend on being performed by a trained professional. Hyperpigmentation (skin darkening), blistering, scarring, and even burns can result from improper use. Due to the laser’s affinity for pigments, avoiding prolonged sunlight exposure weeks after the procedure is crucial for preventing such complications. In addition, laser settings must be adjusted according to the client’s skin tone and hair growth pattern.


Some diseases and accidents can be avoided by just following the rules. Pain, swollen, red cuticles, buildup of black substance between a nail bed are all common symptoms of infection. Fungus and bacterial infections, which can be challenging to treat, are typical results of unsanitary salon practices.


Botox is a cosmetic surgery that temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles by injecting botulinum toxin A and is widely regarded as among the most breakthrough cosmetic technologies for reducing the appearance of wrinkles. However, uneven injection pressure can cause anything from short-term discomfort like redness or bruising to long-term issues like “drooping” or muscle weakening. Overuse of Botox is usually to blame for these unwanted side effects, which can manifest in a variety of ways depending on the injection site.

Waxing Eyebrows

Waxing your eyebrows can be painful, so just like with any other potentially risky beauty operation, you should only get it done by a trained professional. To avoid skin blisters and redness, you should use a cream-based wax.

Ear Candling

Ear candling, also known as ear coning, is inserting hollow cones measuring around 10 inches in length into a person’s ear canal to clean out excess wax, debris, and toxins. Although the FDA and other authorities have warned people against the practice, citing the risks of burns and ear canal obstructions, the method is still widely practiced.

Bleaching Hair

When bleaching your hair, it’s best to go with a “lightening” mix that doesn’t include any ammonia. The ammonia in hair dyes causes the hair to become dry and brittle. Coloring products often contain ammonia as the oxidant, which helps open the cuticles and remove color. However, this procedure also depletes the hair’s regular oils, leaving it dry and brittle.
