The beauty world is full of facts and myths. In today’s post, let’s talk about some more facts and try to debunk the age old myths that we all still believe in!
1. Your age is an important factor in designing your skincare routine
The best factor that works when you choose your skincare products is your skin type! Everything else comes later. Your skin could be severely tanned, oily, dry, blemished or acne prone. These should be the factors that you must consider before buying your skin care products. Choose products according to your skin type, which are loaded with antioxidants, and you are good to go.
2. Everyone needs an eye cream
3. You can shrink pores
The size of your pores is related to your genetic coding and mutation. Pores look enlarged when they are filled with excess sebum and bacteria. You can use different products to control that sebum and in turn make the pores look smaller. But, you cannot permanently shrink pores.
4. Drink more water if you have dry skin
Yes, water is essential as it hydrates the skin and makes it look healthier, but dryness of the skin can be because of many other reasons. Extreme sun damage, usage of drying cleansers, smoking and alcohol in your skin care products could be the reasons for that dryness.
5. Skin repairs itself only at night
Our skin works round the clock – be it day or night. This is just a marketing strategy to sell the same products in different packaging as night repair products. Beauty benefit that occurs at the night is because of the reason that you are sound asleep and at that time the blood flow increases to the face which makes it glow and not just because you have used a different cream.
6. Creams with collagen to get rid of wrinkles
It may be a hard truth to digest but a cream cannot help you get rid of wrinkles. You can take measures to prevent them, but you cannot get rid of them. The skin epidermis is a very thin layer, but molecules in collagen are very large in size and they simply cannot penetrate the skin. Most of the anti aging creams have hyaluronic acid in them which provides temporarily lifted up effect and so you feel that your anti aging cream is working.
7. Crossing your legs causes varicose veins
This is also one such issue that can be blamed on your genetics. The way you stand, sit or walk has nothing to do with varicose veins. Although if you have varicose veins and you stand up for longer intervals, then that may worsen the issue for sure.
8. Hair grows faster in summer
Sun lightens the hair and it gives the illusion of longer looking hair. So there is no direct link between warm weather and increased hair growth.
