In the latest issue of People Magazine Lady Gaga revealed some of her beauty secrets. Here’s a breakdown of do’s and dont’s we can learn from what she divulged:
GAGA BEAUTY DON’T
The singer revealed her hair is falling out due to years of bleaching her naturally brunette locks, blonde. According to the magazine she said, “[I have to] get a chemical haircut because my blonde hair is falling out.” Her sylist Aura Friedman explained, “We have to do a double process to make Gaga’s hair the right shade, which means removing her natural color with cream bleach and then applying a high-gloss dye that actually contains pearly pink, sparkling tones….We have to do it every three weeks, which is extremely damaging.”
Embrace the beautiful hair color you were born with. You may also want to consider simply going a few shades lighter, so your hair looks more natural and your locks won’t have to suffer from the harsh effects of chemical bleaching. If you do have blonde ambition, seek out a professional hair colorist to bleach your hair, and only get your hair colored every six to eight weeks. Unfortunately, if you are not a natural blonde, your roots will start to show through after about one week, but resist the temptation to bleach every week, or you could end up like Gaga.
GAGA BEAUTY DON’T
Lada Gaga also told People that she goes to bed wearing makeup every night. “That is not good for your skin,” she said, “but I’m blessed with good genes.”
It is important to remove makeup before you go to sleep to give your skin a chance to “breathe.” Nighttime is when your skin has a chance to repair itself, and even thought Laga Gaga believes she has good genes, wearing makeup to bed could age your skin seven times faster than average. And, unlike Gaga, we don’t have the hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on the anti-aging skin procedures she will need in a few years when this bad habit catches up to her.
The one beauty tip of Gaga’s that’s worth following is to “just go with your gut…whenever you try to be someone else, it’s boring.” But, please don’t follow you gut when it tells you to bleach your hair weekly and sleep with makeup on.
