Get Ready to Shine with Confidence
Making informed decisions about your skincare routine can be overwhelming when there is so much information out there and everyone has their own opinion. To make sure you have the best facts to base your decision on, we’ve debunked 5 common skincare myths so that you don’t get lost in all the noise. With verified advice from us, it’ll be easier for you to create a regimen tailored to fit your skin’s needs.
“Oil-based Product Causes Breakouts”
Everyone has heard this skincare myth before, but the truth is oils can be beneficial for all skin types—including acne-prone and oily! Don’t believe us? Like attracts like. This means that when your face produces oil, it will draw in more oil from the environment which reduces shine without stripping away moisture. Plus not all oils are made alike; take Jojoba Oil as an example: did you know this isn’t actually an oil? It’s a combination of liquid wax esters, making it ideal to include in Kate Somerville KateCeuticals Total Repair Cream.
“Unless Absolutely Necessary, Masks Should be Used Sparingly”
Not only do many masks make an excellent addition to your skincare routine, but some are actually meant to be used as you sleep! For instance, the PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Overnight Mask is precisely formulated for overnight use and serves as a nourishing layer of hydration that works like an extra blanket in wintertime. For an extra gentle Winter sleeping option, look no further than ClarityRx Cold Compress Soothing Cucumber Mask. This soothing gel mask is commonly used to reduce redness and irritation in the Summertime but can also provide a luxurious and calming experience all year round – just make sure you apply it sparingly so it won’t get onto your pillow.
“Hyperpigmentation is For Life”
It may not seem like it, but you can make a difference with the right combination of products. That said, reversing hyperpigmentation takes time and effort – don’t give up if you’re not seeing results immediately! Consider incorporating products specifically formulated to target dark spots such as 100% Pure Dark Spot Remover, PCA SKIN Pigment Bar and the 100% Pure Brightening Serum in your skincare routine for best results. And never forget sunscreen when trying to reverse this issue – without it all other efforts will be futile.
“Toners Cause Drying and Stripping of the Skin”
With advancements in skincare technology, toners and mists no longer have to be harsh on the skin. Rather than containing high percentages of alcohol that strip away oil from the face, modern day toners and mists are now seen more as refreshers with purifying and hydrating benefits for an overall healthier complexion. Don’t be afraid to spritz your facial mist liberally – you can never use it too much! Use your mist as a primer for serums and makeup, or simply throughout the day as an instant pick-me-up of hydration. Mists are formulated with nourishing ingredients that will not dry out your skin such as the 100% Pure Watermelon Cucumber Water Locking Mist, even if you overuse them; so go ahead and give your face hydration whenever it needs one.
“Mechanical Exfoliants are Detrimental to Our Planet and Should be Avoided”
While scrubs are generally considered to be bad for the environment, this is true only if they contain Polyethylene Beads (PE). PE beads have been historically used in cosmetic formulas due to their ability to give skin a smooth finish. However, these non-biodegradable particles can build up and disrupt natural ecosystems – making them unsafe for wildlife. To avoid harm caused by physical exfoliants, opt instead for more eco-friendly alternative such as Jojoba Beads that will help keep our planet healthy.
