There is so much information out there about skincare that it’s hard to know what is real and what is fake. With so many lies floating around, we wanted to provide some clarity and set the record straight.
You may have heard these myths before but we’re here to break down what to believe, and what to leave behind in the world of skincare. Trust us, this knowledge is going to help you get better results than ever before!
Myth 1: Don’t Use Oil
No matter what your skin type is, you’ve likely heard some misinformation about using oil on your face. Some people think it will clog your pores or make your skin more oily but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Using oil on your face is an effective way to nourish it and the best way to do so is during the cleansing phase of your routine.
Oil helps balance your skin so if you’re oily or dry, it will help bring your skin back to normal. If your skin is normal, the oil will be effective at cleaning and shrinking your pores so your skin looks the best it can. Oil cleansing has gained tons of praise for how well it can work for every single skin type so you don’t need to be afraid to use it anymore. In fact, you’ll probably notice your skin gets better after only a few uses!
Myth 2: Use Eye Cream
It’s wonderful that so many brands offer options for your eye wrinkles. After all, your eye area is so delicate that it’s usually the first area to notice wrinkles. Sadly, many of these companies pedal the myth that you need a super-hydrating cream to help fight wrinkles. Unfortunately, using thick creams can overwhelm your eye area and ever clog your pores. So what can you use instead?
Experts agree that you’ll get far better results from an eye serum instead of eye cream. That’s because serums have smaller molecules that are able to penetrate your eye wrinkles better than thick creams. By using an eye serum twice daily, you’ll be able to provide adequate hydration for your eye skin and deliver peptides that plump and prevent wrinkles with every use.
Myth 3: Don’t Wash In The Morning
One of the newer skincare myths that have been gaining popularity is that if you wash your face before bed, you don’t need to do it again in the morning. They claim that because your skin has already been cleaned, you can skip this extra step in the morning without consequences. The truth is that this could be the reason your skin looks dull, wrinkled, and old.
No matter what, you always want to start your morning by cleansing your face with cleansing oil. Overnight, dead skin cells build up on your skin and cause wrinkles and dull skin to look worse. By washing that away in the morning, it will make your skin look brighter and your pores look smaller. It will also add a boost of hydration because oil is much more hydrating to your skin than soap so you’ll never have that dry crepey-looking skin ever again!
