“Pimples are caused by

poor hygiene.”

“When you eat a lot of chocolates or junk foods, you will get acne.” 

“Skin care products with the word

‘natural’ on the label are good for you.”

To help you weed out what’s true and not when

it comes to skin care principles, here is a list of

the top seven myths about skin care that your

mom probably never told you about:

“Acne is caused by poor hygiene and eating certain foods aggravates the condition”.

Acne is not caused by dirt. No matter how many times

you wash your face and your body, acne may still appear

especially if you are prone to it. Eating foods like

chocolates, soda, peanuts, junk foods, soda and any

other oily or greasy foods will not aggravate acne.

Basically, the root cause of the appearance of acne is

an overproduction of sebum or oil which clogs the pores.

  • “Not washing your face often

  • enough can cause blackheads”.

Just like pimples, blackheads are not caused by dirt so

washing your face more often than usual is not the

solution at all. Blackheads appear when the pores

become dilated and the cellular buildup will lead to

oxidation that causes that black color.

  • “Lying down on a tanning booth is

  • the safest way to add some

  • bronzed color to your skin”.

This is not true at all.  Whether it’s natural tanning

under the heat of the sun or tanning under the tanning

booth, you are still exposing your skin to UVA rays.

UV rays can penetrate deep into your skin and cause

premature aging apart from the risk of you

developing skin cancers.

“When looking for products that

help shield your skin from the rays

of the sun, all you need to look

for is a higher SPF”.

Apart from protecting yourself from UVB rays you also

have to protect yourself from other kinds of ultraviolet

rays including UVA and UVC which some sunscreens

may not necessarily protect you from. A good choice

would be to choose a product with SPF 15 or higher,

and contain ingredients which block both UVA and

UVB rays from penetrating into your skin.

“The more expensive a skin care

product is, the better it is for

your skin”.

The so-called miracle ingredients that some products

claim to have is usually just an excuse to increase their

tag price. This is where your being a wise consumer

should come in. Compare brands to get the best

products for your skin and buy testers before buying

the actual product.

“If a skin care product   claims to

be natural, it should be 100%

good for my skin”.

First of all, there are no regulations in the market when

it comes to using the term natural. So even if it says

natural in the bottle and the product contains just one

herbal ingredient, they can still use the term as a

marketing ploy. Be wise when choosing such products.

“Dermatologist-tested and

hypoallergenic products will work

well for any skin type”.

Again, don’t’ be fooled by the words dermatologist

tested and hypoallergenic.  What causes allergies to one

person may not necessarily have the same effect to

another person – so the term hypoallergenic is quite

vague. Instead be a keen observer of products which

lead to breakouts or skin rashes

– and steer clear of them.
