MYTHS ABOUT SKINCARE
Do you also believe that there is a certain right cream out there somewhere that will make you look younger, would make your scars go away, and would basically work wonders on your skin? Truth be told, it is entirely impossible, and if you do think—especially in relation to this cream—that some things would work perfectly on the exterior, you might be mistaken.
To be really honest, don't most of us desire to seem perfect? Despite the fact that we all agree that we are attractive in our natural state, we all strive to appear our best whenever we have the chance. And when I say "better," I don't necessarily imply that you should use cosmetics or other artificial treatments; rather, you should focus on taking good care of your skin.
Especially when it comes to skincare, there are many solutions, cures, and advice that are available online or from friends. We start using these tips and then wonder why they aren't working. Little do we realize that most of these suggestions are myths, just as some of us think a miracle cream will keep us out of problems. Along with some miraculous tips, there are other myths that we blindly believe and then worry about when we don't see the desired results.
- You will get pimples if you do not wash your face
According to dermatologist Dr. Peterson Pierre, it can be shown that poor hygiene can have some effect on your acne condition, although hygiene is not the main cause of pimples.
- Exfoliating on a daily basis is necessary if you go out regularly
We all know how beneficial exfoliation is for us, but we are unaware of the risks of excessive exfoliation, whether you spend most of your time indoors or outdoors.
- Tanning is good and Tanning is bad
People with fair skin do think that tanning is beneficial, thus they feel the need to do it. Tanning is beneficial because it actually makes up for the lack of vitamin D in your body. Having a slightly darker glow is not a bad thing, but overexposing to the sun without sunscreen would have adverse effects.
- Makeup makes your skin looks old
Well, not necessarily, and it entirely depends on what you're using. And according to other studies, some people may benefit from makeup if they use it properly and adhere to certain basic foundations, such as learning when and how to use different products and making sure to remove their makeup before going to bed.
- If you have oily skin then you do not need a moisturizer
The biggest myth of them all, without a doubt. Regardless of the type of skin you have, you undoubtedly need a moisturizer. And while you can use various gel-based moisturizers or something else if you have oily skin, you shouldn't really stop using moisturizers altogether.
- Sunscreen is only for summers
Actually, we only purchase sunscreen in the summer, but somewhat we don't realize that sunscreen is essential regardless of the weather. Apply sunscreen even if it's not sunny outside because UV rays can easily pass through clouds.
We frequently have the belief that no matter how painful or uncomfortable something is, it will eventually work. What would most people do, for instance, if they heard that a certain product was beneficial for their dry skin but when they applied it to their face, the skin began to burn? We would just keep it on because, in our opinion, skincare is a tedious process, and if we don't go through any discomfort, we won't get anything either. But that is definitely absurd; you fool, wash your face if it starts to sting.
