5 Skincare Myths
  • A cleanser need to have your skin squeaky clean feels after washing
Using harsh cleansers to clean your skin will strip away the natural oils that protect it from dirt, pollution and other factors that can easily damage your skin. Do your skin a favor and use mild cleaners, they're much gentler and still effective.
  • Toner is a skin cleanser, it  isn’t really necessary to healthy skin, it can help to tighten or shrink pores and it’s a marketing ploy
Our skin is naturally acidic, normally with a pH balance of between five and six. After cleansing, due to the alkaline nature of soap, the pH balance of skin gets disturbed. When this happens your skin needs to work overtime to restore the balance (and that may result in more oil), but using a toner helps to restore this balance quickly. Facial toners provide hydration to your skin, which is essential to maintaining elasticity, smoothness, moisture and a more youthful appearance. Proper skin hydration reduces the signs of aging skin and provides an effective base for the application of facial cosmetics. Many facial toners also provide vitamins and other essential skin nutrients to keep your skin healthy and balanced.
  • All moisturizers are the same
There are several types of moisturizers you can choose from, according to your skin’s needs. It’s easy to choose a moisturizer based on your skin type. There are formulas for oily or acne-prone skin, sensitive skin and dry. You’ll also notice that moisturizers have different textures.
  • You don’t need moisturizer because your face produce a natural oil that can help to moisturize your face
Even if you have oily skin, you can still benefit from the use of a daily moisturizer. And, no, moisturizers don't have to leave your skin feeling greasy and looking shiny. The trick is in finding the right product. Moisturizers are used to improve skin's hydration (think water-content of the skin, not oil-content). They work by slowing the evaporation of water from the skin, helping to keep skin hydrated.  Moisturizing creams and lotions reduce moisture loss and increase water content of the epidermis. Moisturizing products aren't just for, well, moisturizing.  They also form a protective barrier on the skin's surface and give the skin a soft, smooth feel.
  • Tanned skin is healthy glowing skin
Often when people have prominent acne scars, they try tanning to try to make the scar fade or hide it by darkening the skin around it. In fact, tanning is one of the worst things you can do for a scar. For starters, scar tissue is different from normal skin and much less resistant to damage caused by ultraviolet rays
