Skincare Myths: Dos and Don'ts
Skincare is a continuous process. You need to be at it every day if you want to sport flawless and clear skin. With the traditional approaches and the internet and your neighbours and your friends, you will hear a lot of dos and don’ts about skincare. While some may be true and proven, others may do damage to your face. We have debunked some common skincare myths for you. Read on to find out what’s true and what’s not!
Myth: All Natural Products Are Safe For Your Skin
The effectiveness of any natural product depends on what kind of skin you have, what problem you have and how you’re using that product. Also, many times, the products that claim to be natural may not be completely natural. This can have adverse effects on your skin and worsen the situation rather than making it better. Choose your products wisely, and test them before making a decision.
Myth: You Should Wash Your Face As Frequently As You Can
If you keep washing your face frequently, you will wash off the essential natural oils which will make your skin dry and easy to damage. Two to three times a day is an ideal number to get rid of the impurities and the dirt.
Myth: The SPF In Your Makeup Is Enough
No matter what your makeup says, the SPF in your makeup, serum or cream might not provide enough protection from the sun. You must double protect yourself against the sun. Also, it is not okay to skip sunscreen on cloudy days since the harmful rays still reach your skin.
Myth: You Should Start Using Anti-Ageing Products In Your Youth Itself
There is no rule that says you need to start fighting the signs of ageing right at the age of 20. While it’s okay to worry about the future, it is a bit unnecessary to expose your skin to anti-ageing products even when it’s youthful. Use the products in your 30s, or when you feel that you have started showing the signs of ageing on your face.
Myth: Toothpaste Gets Rid Of Pimples
Toothpaste isn’t meant for your skin. The chemical contents that it has are meant to be used on enamel, not your facial skin. Using a toothpaste on a pimple can cause bleeding, busting, irritation and burning sensations. Our suggestion? Let your face heal on its own!
Myth: Popping Your Zits Will Make It Go Away
No, it won’t. If anything, it will only leave you with a scar or may trigger more zits around it. Let your face be. Give the zits and the pimples time to heal on their own.
