Here are few skin-glowing myths busted which we all need to know about;
× What if I scrub harder? It might give me better results
In fact scrubbing your skin harder will spoil your skin, as the top layer of the skin is a protective barrier layer, scrubbing your skin harder will disrupt the upper layer and make the skin more sensitive towards the UV Rays which will lead to rashes and easy tanning.
According to research if you over-exfoliate your skin, the chances are more that you will end up having tiny cracks in the skin. The absolute number of times one should be exfoliating is three times a week.
× I can’t moisturize my skin is oily
The truth is every type of skin needs to get moisturized, why? Because when we cleanse our skin, the natural moisture in our skin gets strip of which will lead to releasing excessive oil production in the oily skin. That might affect the skin and will give birth to extra scars and breakouts. A light water based oil free moisturizer will work effectively.
× Bleaching my face will make my skin glow
It’s true that the bleach will make your skin appear fairer, but the fact is bleach works on your facial hair and not the skin. It is the facial hair that changes it color because of which your face glow. It is advisable to get a patch test done first on the back of the ear or on the arms just to be assured that if your skin is not allergic to it.
× Oh snap! I can’t sweat it will affect my skin.
It’s a myth! Sweating does not make you break out. The fact is when the sebum glands gets clogged with oil that causes acne and not the sweat. Don’t blame the sweat for what the oil did.
× I don’t want sunscreen my foundation already has SPF content in it
It’s a myth, the SPF in your makeup is not really enough to protect you from sunburn, according to Dermatologist- Leslie Baumann, makeup does not provide a sufficient coverage, we need 7 times the normal amount of foundation and 14 times the normal amount of powder to protect our skin from the sun. SPF in makeup is not just enough it might protect your skin for the short period but it won’t protect your skin for a long time.
