6 Myths and Truths About Skin Care

Taking care of your skin is important and most people understand this. However, many people do not know how to do it and will seek advice from people who are not experts in the field, resulting in the spread of myths about skin care. Today we will demystify 6 myths about this topic.


Be Careful Who You Listen to When it Comes to Your Skin


Myth 1: The Thicker the Cream is, the More Moisturizing it is

This is a myth since in fact, quite the opposite occurs. Indeed, a thick cream imprisons dead cells and gives a matte appearance to the skin. This is also the reason why many cosmetics brands create more gels and cream-gels as than moisturizing cream.

Myth 2: When it is Cloudy Outside, it is Not Necessary to Put Sunscreen on

This is absolutely false. Clouds do almost nothing to prevent harmful UVA rays reaching the skin. You need to put on a sunscreen on sunny and cloudy days to provide adequate protection to your skin.

Myth 3: It is Not Necessary to Use a Moisturizing Cream on Oily Skin

Oily skin also needs to be moisturized! Simply make sure to choose a non-greasy cream.

Myth 4: Men Should Only Use Men Products

This is false. Although men and women have particular needs for their skin’s maintenance, the fact is that skin is skin. You should listen to the needs of your own rather than listen to promotional campaigns that praise products marketed towards men.

Myth 5: You Must Use a Specific Cream for Each Body Part

This statement is true. Indeed, since the face is more exposed to sunlight than other parts of your body and, by extension, dries up more, you should use a cream specifically designed for your face’s skin. Also, use a cream created for the needs of your body's extremities to combat dry skin and chapping. In short, choose creams that fit the needs of your body parts.

Myth 6: Your Skin May Become Dependent to Creams

This assertion is unfounded. The use of creams does not make your cream addicted to it. If your skin needs to be hydrated, hydrate it!
