5 Common Skin Care and Body Care Myths and Facts
Everyone loves their skin. You might try to read about it in detail in your day-to-day life to keep your skin healthy and young. However, there’s so much misinformation about skin care on the internet that you might get confused what’s true and what’s not. After conducting a lot of research about skin care, we’ve highlighted 5 skin care and body care myths you should know in order to provide your skin with the proper care it actually needs.
Myth #1: You Don't Need Sunscreen on Cloudy Days
Fact: Many people think that they don’t need sunscreen indoors or generally if the sky is cloudy. However, not many know that harmful UVA & UVB rays from the sun can penetrate clouds and harm your skin when you haven’t used any layer of protection.
Dermatologists have also found that UV rays can cut through the glass windows of your home or car. They recommend that you always wear the broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF minimum of 20-30, regardless of whether the sky is clear or cloudy or if you’re indoors.
Myth #2: You Should Moisturize, Cleanse, and Tone Your Skin on a Regular Basis
Fact: These actions might all sound good, but with a changing environment, climate conditions have changed skin care priorities. For example, in an area with dry weather conditions, it might be more necessary to moisturize your skin frequently. In a humid region, though, using a regular moisturizer too often can lead to acne breakouts. Similarly, a toner can disturb the PH balance on dry skin, which can lead to itchiness and irritation. A regular cleanser wash can even remove your skin’s naturally produced oils, which is a must to stay healthy.
Myth #3: You Should Pop Pimples to Get Rid of Acne
Fact: Popping pimples is one of the first things you can do to get temporary relief from acne, but it can cause painful irritation and even permanent scars. While popping a pimple, it might seem that you’re only dealing with the top layer of your skin, but most pimples have deep roots in the dermis. A popped pimple can cause inflammation that travels deeper into your skin, which might even lead to a spreading infection that causes another pimple.
Myth #4: The Higher the SPF in a Sunscreen, the Better Its Protection
Fact: There are three kinds of UV rays:
UVA – that penetrate the skin deeply and interferes with your pigmentation to produce a tan;
UVB – that primarily cause sunburns;
UVC– that are absorbed by the atmosphere and don’t make it to the ground.
SPF is the amount of product protection against UVB rays. Therefore, many sunscreen manufacturing companies fight to offer protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
Myth #5: Expensive Products Are The Most Effective
Fact: You might think about selecting the most expensive products on the market thinking they’re the most effective for your skin. Don’t be fooled. We suggest you avoid blindly opting for a product based on branding and price. While shopping for beauty products, always check the list of ingredients on the back to see if it’ll suit you or not. Check whether the chemicals in the product used are safe or harmful for your skin. A little research can go a long way and show you the best skin care products at a reasonable price.
