It’s odd how bad information about skin and skin care is circulated from person to person. I wanted to debunk these popular myths hoping that the correct information is passed along. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and deserves the proper care and attention.
Tanning At the Salon Is Safe
Some people think by tanning indoor under light bulbs is much safer than tanning outside. They are wrong! In fact, tanning in general is bad for the skin, which may cause premature aging (wrinkles and age spots) and skin cancer. Even though tanning booths claim to use UVA rays (which do not burn the skin) instead of UVB rays, both rays can cause long term skin damage and skin cancer. Have you ever seen people who are constantly gone to tanning booths? Most of them have an abnormal orange or unnatural dark color. Tanning outside in the sun is still just as bad, and the sun also has these terrible UV rays. If you still desire the suntan look minus the UVB and UVA rays, you can invest in a sunless tanner. It only takes minutes to apply.
Acne Is Caused By Eating Greasy Foods
Just because you have acne doesn’t mean that you eat greasy foods. In fact, the only way for someone to get acne from eating greasy foods is by rubbing those oils all of his/her face. Furthermore, acne is mostly caused by hormones, which is why teenagers and adults normally get it.
Even though acne is caused by hormones, you can prevent or minimize it by washing your face with gentle acne cleansers and using hypoallergenic makeup. If you can not get rid of your acne, always go to your dermatologist.
Women Have More Skin Complications Than Men
This is not true at all! Men still get wrinkles, acne, and other skin conditions. Most beauty products are marketed to women rather than men, but it doesn’t mean that women have more skin problems. In fact, skin complications depend on your genetics and other environmental conditions.
Expensive Beauty Products Work Better Than Cheaper Ones
Just because a beauty product costs more does not mean it is more effective than cheaper counterparts. Expensive beauty products market themselves having a special ingredient that is not found anywhere else. Before you purchase those expensive products, research the key ingredient and see if it is in another other cheaper products. You will be surprised how much money you can save and achieve the same results.
However, if you really like a particular beauty product whether expensive or cheap, Skin Store probably has it. Skin Store has thousands of beauty products to help you with anti-aging, acne, scars, sun damage, pigmentation, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea. You can also find basic skin care that will protect and enhance your features like lip enhancers, moisturizers, sunscreens, bath products, hair care, and nail care.
