Bust These Skincare Myths for Glowing Health

Higher SPF is Better

It's believed that sunscreen with a higher SPF protects skin better. Dermatologists recommend an SPF of 30-50 because anything higher doesn't provide much more protection. Sunscreen must be applied frequently.

Oily Skin Doesn't Need Moisturizer

Oily skin needs moisturizer! Moisturize all skin types. Hydrate even greasy skin. Oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizers won't clog pores.

You Can Shrink Your Pores

You can't shrink pores, despite many products' claims. Cleansing, exfoliating, and applying retinoids or alpha hydroxy acids can reduce their appearance.

 Natural Products Are Always Safe

Not all natural elements are good for skin. Before utilizing a new product, check for allergies and patch test. Remember, not all natural or synthetic is hazardous.

You Don't Need Sunscreen on Cloudy Days

Clouds don't block UV radiation. 80% of sunlight can penetrate clouds. Thus, sunscreen should always be worn.

Acne Only Affects Teens

Hormones, food, and stress cause acne at any age. Acne may be managed at any age with proper skincare.

Skincare Can Replace a Healthy Diet

Good skincare can't replace a healthy diet. Fruits, veggies, and healthy fats nourish skin.

Scrubbing Removes Blackheads

Scrubbing harshly irritates skin and worsens blackheads. Use a mild salicylic acid exfoliant to remove blackheads.
