Skincare Rumors that Aren’t True

Skincare Rumors that Aren’t True

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and deserves a lot of TLC. Today many false skincare rumors are floating around making it hard to know  what’s best for your skin. We’ve uncovered the top rumors that could be ruining your skincare routine.

Exfoliating often

Exfoliating is great, but in moderation (or using a gentle daily exfoliant). If you do it too hard or too often, it’ll have the opposite effect on your skin like redness, dryness, or irritation. Remember, every person’s skin is different so make sure to find an exfoliating routine that’s right for you! 

You only need sunscreen When You’re in the sun

As discussed in previous blogs, sunscreen should be a part of your daily skincare routine. Sun damage can occur on any day (summer or winter) and whether you’re lying out in the sun, driving a car, or even sitting on your couch next to the window. We are all exposed to the sun every day  and must protect our delicate skin. Make sure to apply at least SPF 15 after a shower if you think you’ll be exposing yourself to sunlight.

Experts and doctors recommend using a minimum of SPF 15 as a daily sunscreen (apply after a shower).

Oily Skin Doesn’t Need Moisturizer

If you have oily skin the last thing you want is a ‘shinier face’, we get it. However, moisturizer is one of the key ingredients for having healthy skin. If you don’t moisturize, your skin will naturally produce more oil as the sun, wind, and other elements cause your skin to dry out. That shiny face you didn’t want will get even worse if you skip the moisturizer and can become dehydrated. Just make sure you find a moisturizer that works well for your skin!

You Can’t Use the Same Skincare Products Long-Term

Your skin type may change as you age so it’s important to change your products with it. It’s also common to change your routine with the seasons. The key is to stay vigilant of your skin changes through the year(s).
