We have all heard about Kim Kardarshian opting out for venom facial because it fades out those freckles and thin lines. Now the question here is would you do it?
Seriously, would you not be tempted to try it. For us as teenagers, the more “hokey’ and “weird” the advice is, the more appealing it is!
There is an information load over the internet but it needs to be questioned. So, we bring to you 5 myths that could be raking your skin to more harm than good and wait we do have reasons for it!
Myth 1: Drinking water is good for your skin
The truth? Drinking too much water does not have, give you that “glow” effect on your skin, rather it has the tendency to make the skin dry, tight and itchy (can’t believe us right?)
Well! On one hand water is a life saver and we cannot live without it (your biology teacher was correct) it has nothing to do with the skin which is essentially oily in nature. Since water and oil are repulsive of each other, too much water can cause the skin to lose all its hydration from the deepest layers.
So, the trick is not to mix biology and beauty together and gulp down water to keep the body hydrated.
Myth 2: Toothpaste can fight those acne
You’ve done it! I have done it and we all have done it. After all toothpaste is one thing so readily available in our bathrooms that we cannot resist to try out the “pasty therapy”. Now let us break the bubble and reveal to you that toothpaste by no means is magical. In fact certain ingredients in it, for example baking soda and alcohol can be damaging for the skin and tends to dry it out. So it’s better to keep the toothpaste only to shine your teeth and use specialized acne products to cure those stray zits.
Myth 3: All (sun)light is bad for your skin
Stay out of the sun and don’t go out in the noon is some good advice. But we need to shed a general notion that all sorts of sunlight is bad for us and our skin. You will be surprised to know that certain kinds of light are in fact good for your skin and may be beneficial in stimulating the collagen synthesis (it keeps your skin firm).
Dermatologists suggest that red light typically having a frequency of 600 nm is good for skin and helps to heal wounds and reverse aging(yayy!)
Keeping a tab on this piece of information, the salons now are offering facials using red light on! And also remember, some natural sunshine is good for your skin. It helps to synthesize the essential Vitamin D. So it’s not always that you need to keep the sun at bay.
Myth 4: Oily skin doesn’t need to be moisturized
Are you ditching the creams just because you have oily skin? STOP and think for a while. Experts suggest that even oily skin should get its daily dose of hydration (puzzled … eh?). Well the oily skin needs to be kept hydrated using an oil free moisturizer that does not feel greasy on the skin and does not clog pores yet at the same time gives that essential thing to your skin.
Myth 5: You don’t really need a night cream
Well to some extent it is true, but it’s really a good idea to invest in a night cream because the body repairs itself in sleep, and because the growth hormone is released during these periods, it’s the ideal time to stimulate collagen production. So, for all your teenagers out there, we have formulated a night cream, keeping in mind the peculiarities of the young skin. Go ahead and give yourself a beauty sleep using our night cream.
