10 Myths About Good Skin Care

Good skincare has always been sought after thing for everyone. Who wouldn't want a healthy skin? However, the crave to have a good skin has given rise to alot of  untrue notions and myths about good skin care. This article may burst your bubble as it points out ten myths about good skincare you thought were true.

  1. Sleeping with makeup on is fine: It might seem thrifty but keeping your makeup on even at night clog the pores and leaves your skin at the danger of accumulating harmful bacteria that could cause breakouts.
  2. Only dry skin needs moisturizing: First off, bear in mind that dry skin doesn't translate to dehydrated skin all the time. So having an oily skin doesn't necessarily mean it's well hydrated. Moisturizers aid the hydration of the skin by adding water to it and can get excess oil under control.
  3. Skipping SPF is fine if it's not sunny: It is more important to apply suncreen when it's sunny, but in the actual sense, it should be a daily routine. Given that 80% of UV rays can penetrate easily and cause damage.
  4. Retinol is only for anti-ageing: Truly, retinol is great for addressing signs of ageing, but actually, it does more such as triggering cell regeneration which boosts cell renewal and unclogs pores.
  5. You can use the same products any time of the day: The skin embarks on different roles (protection and repair) in the day and at night. It is important to support both functions using the right products at the right time. Start a good routine, use antioxidants and SPF in the day, at night aid repair with retinol products.
  6. Dry skin is the same as dehydrated skin: As earlier stated in a point above, dry skin doesn't necessarily mean dehydrated skin. Dry skin lacks oil whereas dehydrated skin lacks water and you can experience both at the same time, which is why it's important to find the right balance of using oil and water-based products in your routine.
  7. Natural skincare is best for you: Not all lab-made skincare products are toxic, and natural skin care products aren't always safer. Natural skincare, no doubt, can be great, but it's always good to properly research a product before you buy it. In some cases natural products contain additives and can expire quickly. Just learn what works for your skin type.
  8. Anti-ageing products are only for the old: Note that anti-ageing is more about prevention than cure. The skin is always ageing; experts recommend using SPF daily, antioxidants serums and other anti-ageing products early to keep signs of ageing at bay.
  9. Any product that makes you breakout is bad: This is not true as breaking out is part of the purging process of the skin, so that new product you're using may contain purifying properties. Persevere!
  10. The stronger your exfoliant, the better: Starting with a high-strength exfoliant can irritate the skin if you have sensitive skin. Find out what acids suit your skin.


You may not have the best skin at the moment due to some many untrue notions you have come across online and offline about having a good skin. However, it is vital to learn and understand what works for your skin.
