Myths and Facts about Skin Care Regimen

We are mostly ignorant when it comes to skin care and we try least to pay any attention to different skin conditions. While some of us do care about our skin, but we hardly know the right way to take care of it.

We generally believe in the “word of mouth” thing and try that advice on our skin which mostly backfires. Each skin type is different and there needs to specific expert attention given to it. So, stop believing the myths you hear around and focus on the truth with these common tips.

Myth - Fairness Creams will Make Your Skin Fairer

Truth - I mean seriously? This is actually the biggest marketing gimmick of the cosmetic industry. We reckon you to not worry about the colour of your skin and just be confident with it. Whiter is not necessarily better.

Myth - Higher the SPF in A Sunscreen, Higher is The Sun Protection

Truth - Let us discuss some science facts here. There are three types of UV rays – UVC, UVB and UVA.
The UVC rays never get to the ground as they get absorbed by our atmosphere. UVB rays are known to causes normal sunburns and UAV rays are the most harmful of all. So, the SPF on the sunscreen refers to the protection they provide from both UVA and UVB rays. You should go for a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF of at least 15 with some of the following chemicals - mexoryl, oxybenzone or avobenzone.

Myth - You Don’t Need Sunscreen on A Cloudy Day

Truth - You always thought that the sun rays do not reach the earth surface on a cloudy day, but they do reach the surface and can harm you the same way they harm on a sunny day. So, apply your sun screen as you would usually on a sunny day if you want to cheat on the sun.

Myth - You Don’t Need to Moisturize Oily Skin Type

Truth - It is a wrong notion among people that oily skin doesn’t need to be moisturized, in fact oily skin need moisture on a daily basis because if you over-wash and dry your skin then the glands produce more sebum leading to acne breakouts in your skin.
