Beauty Myth: Preparation H deflates puffiness


This is a supposed trick used by Hollywood make up artist, but no clinical studies have ever been done to prove that it works.

On fact, one of the product’s ingredients that is said to reduce puffiness, is no longer found in the cream that is sold n the United States (preparation H was reformulated in 1994).

Using preparation H around the eyes can actually cause dry, and inflamed skin.

So, it’s best to keep this product below the waistline.
