Top 5 Skincare Myths Debunked

Think you know a lot about skin and skin care?

You might be surprised at how much “common knowledge” about keeping your skin clear and healthy is simply not true.

Here are five skin care myths you need to stop believing, like, yesterday.

Myth 1: Hot water opens up your pores


Hot water often makes the outer layers of your skin swell, making it look like your pores have opened.

In reality, pores aren’t temperature-sensitive, and you should always wash your face with lukewarm water to avoid your skin drying out or getting damaged.

Myth 2: Toothpaste gets rid of spots


Just like common blemish treatments, toothpaste contains ingredients like baking soda and alcohol, which work to dry out your skin. However, toothpaste can also irritate your skin, leaving it sore and unhappy – and sometimes even burning!

To rid yourself of unwanted pimples, look for a product that contains salicylic acid, which will reduce the swelling around your blemishes.

Myth 3: You don’t need to moisturize if you have oily skin


Just because you have oily skin, doesn’t mean you should avoid moisturizer. After all, most cleansers strip away your skin’s natural oils, leaving it in need of an additional layer of protection.

Nowadays, there’s a moisturizer for every skin type, from oily to sensitive.

So if you struggle with oily skin, why not try a lotion like the Clearskin® Professional Daily Correcting Lotion, or a gel like the Anew Hydra Fusion Gel Cream.

Myth 4: Your skincare will stop working after a while


Although it may feel like your skin has got used to your age-old skincare faves, it’s pretty unlikely.

The truth is, your skin has probably changed. Whether that’s through hormones, a change in diet or just your age, you need to adapt your skincare routine to the changes your skin goes through.

Myth 5: You can skip sunscreen if it’s not sunny


Just because it’s not a bright and sunny day, doesn’t mean you’re safe from sun damage. Even on cold and cloudy days, the sun’s rays can sneak through.

To keep you safe, we’d always recommend using either a moisturizer with SPF or a light sunscreen like the Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense SPF 50.
