The top 7 myths about skin care! Presentation Transcript

  • 1. “When you eat a lot of chocolates or junk foods, you will get acne.” 
    “Pimples are caused by
    poor hygiene.”
    “Skin care products with the word
    ‘natural’ on the label are good for you.”
    To help you weed out what’s true and not when
    it comes to skin care principles, here is a list of
    the top seven myths about skin care that your
    mom probably never told you about:
  • 2. “Acne is caused by poor hygiene and eating certain foods aggravates the condition”.
    Acne is not caused by dirt. No matter how many times
    you wash your face and your body, acne may still appear
    especially if you are prone to it. Eating foods like
    chocolates, soda, peanuts, junk foods, soda and any
    other oily or greasy foods will not aggravate acne.
    Basically, the root cause of the appearance of acne is
    an overproduction of sebum or oil which clogs the pores.
  • 3. “Not washing your face often
    enough can cause blackheads”.
    Just like pimples, blackheads are not caused by dirt so
    washing your face more often than usual is not the
    solution at all. Blackheads appear when the pores
    become dilated and the cellular buildup will lead to
    oxidation that causes that black color.
  • 4. “Lying down on a tanning booth is
    the safest way to add some
    bronzed color to your skin”.
    This is not true at all.  Whether it’s natural tanning
    under the heat of the sun or tanning under the tanning
    booth, you are still exposing your skin to UVA rays.
    UV rays can penetrate deep into your skin and cause
    premature aging apart from the risk of you
    developing skin cancers.
  • 5. “When looking for products that
    help shield your skin from the rays
    of the sun, all you need to look
    for is a higher SPF”.
    Apart from protecting yourself from UVB rays you also
    have to protect yourself from other kinds of ultraviolet
    rays including UVA and UVC which some sunscreens
    may not necessarily protect you from. A good choice
    would be to choose a product with SPF 15 or higher,
    and contain ingredients which block both UVA and
    UVB rays from penetrating into your skin.
  • 6. “The more expensive a skin care
    product is, the better it is for
    your skin”.
    The so-called miracle ingredients that some products
    claim to have is usually just an excuse to increase their
    tag price. This is where your being a wise consumer
    should come in. Compare brands to get the best
    products for your skin and buy testers before buying
    the actual product.
  • 7. “If a skin care product   claims to
    be natural, it should be 100%
    good for my skin”.
    First of all, there are no regulations in the market when
    it comes to using the term natural. So even if it says
    natural in the bottle and the product contains just one
    herbal ingredient, they can still use the term as a
    marketing ploy. Be wise when choosing such products.
  • 8. “Dermatologist-tested and
    hypoallergenic products will work
    well for any skin type”.
    Again, don’t’ be fooled by the words dermatologist
    tested and hypoallergenic.  What causes allergies to one
    person may not necessarily have the same effect to
    another person – so the term hypoallergenic is quite
    vague. Instead be a keen observer of products which
    lead to breakouts or skin rashes
    – and steer clear of them.
