Now-a-days many skin care companies and products are competing for your hard earned dollars. “Use this cream”, “buy this acne cure” and many more.
All these messages are often conflicting and confuse you to make right choice. Finally, you’ll end up with wrong choice.
So, how do you know what’s true? It is always recommended to take suggestions from any experienced dermatologist, before using any new skin care product.
Here are few skin care myths that many of you encounter in your regular practice.
Common skin care myths!
These are certain most common skin care myths that many of you can encounter in your routine skincare regimen. So, be aware with these skin care myths.
Tanning booths are safe as long as they don’t include UVB rays!
As we all know, tanning is quite unhealthy and can cause many skin problems including skin cancer and premature aging. But, most of the tanning booth companies often promise that they’ll filter out” sun burn” that is caused by UVB rays.
Actually, when you go for a tanning booth, you are still exposed to harmful UVA rays that can penetrate easily into your skin. This can cause great damage to your skin and potentially leads to premature aging of your healthy skin.
There is no need of sunscreen on cloudy day!
Most of you might think this is absolutely true. But in fact, even on cloudy climatic conditions, the UV radiation of sun directly reaches the earth. So, don’t forget to use sunscreen every day, despite of the climatic conditions.
If you apply sunscreen when you are at your home, nothing goes wrong. Additionally, you can get healthy glowing skin.
Acne and other skin diseases are caused by poor hygiene!
Actually, acne and other skin problems originate from within your body. They can be easily triggered due to hormonal imbalance, stress or genetic disposition or even due to poor nutrition.
However, proper hygiene is very essential to get healthy skin and it is more important to avoid industrial and dietary pollutants.
Expensive skin care products works best!
This is absolutely false. Any skin care product that contains effective and proper ingredients works best for you. Of course, expensive skincare products works effective, at the same time other skin care products that are found in your local drug store also work well.
So, don’t be in such kind of misconception and make good choices while buying skin care products.
Anti-aging skin care product permanently eliminates wrinkles on skin!
Till now there is no such ant-aging product that can permanently reduce the wrinkles and fine lines on your skin. However, they can be used to delay the aging process of your skin. But, they cannot completely reduce the wrinkles on your skin.
Be aware with all these skincare myths. Remind all these myths while selecting skin care products for your skin and protect your skin from harmful ingredients.
