Many face care myths are misconceptions
THE TOP FOUR MYTHS ABOUT FACE CARE TIPS
MYTH 1: YOUR SKIN BECOMES ADDICTED TO MOISTURISING
Certainly not. Your skin does not adjust to the care you give it by reducing its moisture and lipid production.
Instead, face creams balance out the lack of moisture and lipids in your skin and strengthen its natural protective layers.
MYTH 2: USE A TOWEL FOR A FACE MASSAGE WHEN DRYING
Absolutely false. You should always dry your face carefully.
Gently dab your face with a clean, dry towel after cleansing. This may take longer, but it won’t put your skin under too much stress
MYTH 3: EXFOLIATING DRIES OUT THE SKIN
Not at all. Exfoliating gently removes impurities and dead skin cells, stimulates cell regeneration and increases blood circulation in the top layers of your skin.
It also reduces excess oil, without disrupting your skin’s balance or drying it out.
MYTH 4: TOOTHPASTE HELPS RELIEVE PIMPLES
Not a good idea. Some toothpastes contain zinc and have a drying and anti-inflammatory effect
However, many also contain fluorine and menthol. These ingredients will irritate your skin and may even make pimples worse.
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
