Products In Your Medicine Cabinet That Don't Work As Advertised

Clutter clusters often form in our medicine cabinets, where all those products that promise to make our skin look better, teeth look whiter and fix our split ends reside. But as many of us have learned the hard way these products rarely deliver on their promises, and some do more harm than good.

Those pore strips and masks people keep slapping on their faces pull out hair follicles and sebaceous filaments which are supposed to stay in our pores, so using them can actually give you worse acne as well as spider veins.

Ask any hairstylist and they'll tell you- the best way to fix split ends is by getting a trim, not by slapping some product in your hair that ultimately does little more than make your hair greasy.

But the worst offenders are the sunscreen lotions, which promise to keep us safe from harmful UV rays but actually don't protect our skin as well as they claim:

The Environmental Working Group did a massive study of over 900 different sunscreen products, and uncovered some shocking results. The group found that 3/4 of sunscreens don't protect you as well as they claim on the bottle.

Separate research by Consumer Reports found that almost 40% of suntan lotions are half as strong as they claim to be. You can check if your brand is lying to you here, and look for brands that say they meet clinical guidelines for their SPF.
