5 Skincare Urban Legends Debunked To Protect You from Skin Problems

To protect you and your loved ones from following the wrong skin care advice, we’ve taken the top five skincare urban myths we’re tired of hearing about and debunked them!

  1. Constantly washing your face will cure acne:

    You may have heard this a million times, but constantly washing your face throughout the day will not help reduce acne. Indeed, it depletes your skin of essential oils, leaving it extremely dry and parched, and prone to acne.

  2. Scrubbing frequently helps reduce excess oil on the face:

    If you have oily skin, it is believed that scrubbing your face twice or thrice a week will help reduce excess sebum. However, this is not true. Indeed, scrubbing your face more frequently may result in bruising your skin, which may result in blemishes or pimples.

  3. Avoid wearing an SPF on cloudy days:

    Just because it is raining heavily does not negate the need for sunscreen. Even at this time of year, going without it is a no-no. Even on a cloudy day, the sun’s UV rays are at their strongest, and if you go without sunscreen, you will almost certainly get tanned.

  4. Age spots are a sign of aging:

    Age spots or sunspots as they are more commonly referred to, can occur at any age. The freckle-like spots on the skin are not age spots; they develop due to your skin being exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays.

  5. Expensive products are superior:

    It is widely believed that only high-end brands and products contribute significantly to keeping your skin healthy and free of skin-related problems. However, they perform nearly identically to a less expensive product.
