Can you tell skin care hacks from skin care myths? They seem to crop up everywhere. Here are some of the main skin care myths to watch out for:
4 Skin Care Myths to Stop Believing, Now
#1 Stop Eating Junk Food to Stop Acne
Scientifically, no real correlation seems to exist between acne breakouts and fatty foods from Micky D’s or KFC. Instead, acne can be triggered by hormonal issues, stress, genetics and other factors. The key is washing twice a day with a gentle cleanser. Then, follow with a good moisturizer with dimethicone or hyaluronic acid.
#2 You Can Get Rid of Cellulite
Sadly, no. It’s not that scientists aren’t working on this, it’s that nothing so far seems to change the dimpled effect of those pesky fat cells. Most remedies help manage or help with the condition, NOT eliminate it. With that in mind, try Buffing Beans Coffee Scrub on your legs. You can thank us later.
#3 Anti-Aging Creams Can Make Skin Look Worse
While there is no doubt that retinoids can be irritating, especially at first, most of the time these creams produce improvement. In fact, you’re more likely to end up red and blotchy with a deep chemical peel.
#4 SPF Means Nothing after Age 40—the Damage is Done!
We don’t know where this notion came from. The fact is, you can and will be damaged by the sun at any age if you don’t apply sunscreen. In fact, skipping sunscreen after 40 is even worse because you obviously have age itself affecting how your skin looks. So slather on that sunscreen, always! Your skin will thank you.
