The road to clear and youthful skin comes with debunking the myths that keep you from pampering your pretty face. It’s important to note that not everything you hear about skincare is always right.
Here’s a roundup of these misconceptions that may literally save your skin.
Myth: Washing your face with soap and water is enough to remove makeup.
Reality: Using soap and water alone will lead to residue on your face that will cause more acne. Use a real makeup remover to thoroughly remove makeup and avoid build up.
Myth: Indulgent rubbing when washing your face will leave it squeaky clean.
Reality: Too much face washing strips the skin of its natural oils. Apply facial wash gently and avoid cleansers with harsh ingredients.
Myth: Toners shrink pores.
Reality: Pores don’t shrink, if your skin feels too tight, it means the product may not suit your skin. Toners should actually prep the skin for moisturizing.
Myth: Oily skin doesn’t need moisturizer.
Reality: All skin types still need moisturizer for hydration. People with oily skin should opt for moisturizers with a gel formula.
