Are the opinions that you read in your fashion glossy or in beauty blogs are genuine.? No, unfortunately not often. Drinking water to keep your skin’s moisture balance up to date?. A tingling sensation of your skin indicates that the beauty product is doing its work? Fabels. In this article you will read what is true and what not. We tell you what really works. When it comes to skin care, everybody thinks about what’s best for herself or himself. But do not let yourself be tampered by friends who despise themselves as dermatologists. Experts interrupt or confirm here widespread myths about skin care, so you finally know what’s right for your skin.
Skin Care Myth – 1: There are skin care products that work just like prescribed cosmetic injections.
Reality: There is no product that works as cosmetic injections. That is because the ingredients can not reach the area where they should be effective. There is no research that shows that there is a skin care product, the effect of which is also far from cosmetic injections or laser treatment. Regardless of the ingredients, it’s just impossible. Even fillers applied locally can not fill wrinkles as injections can. If a cosmetic injection is performed by someone trained for it, the treated wrinkles will almost disappear as in the case of tampering. Believe that skin care products can be the same as wasted money.
Skin Care Myth – 2: Your age is an important factor in the purchase of skin care products.
Reality: A lot of products are claimed to be specially developed for a specific age group. Especially the skin of the “mature” woman; where they usually mean women from over 50.
Ask yourself before buying a product that has been marketed for a specific age group. Why women over 50 are always thrown into one hope. According to this logic, someone who is 40 or 45 should not use the same products as someone who is 50. but someone of 80 should use the same products as someone of 50. What’s important is to know is That age is not a skin type and you should never base your choice of certain products at your age.
Skin Care Myth – 3: Hypoallergenic products are better for sensitive skin.
Reality: Hypoallergen is actually a trivial word. It’s a smart marketing term that they want to make believing that a product hardly or has no allergic reaction. Therefore is better for sensitive skin or for problem skin.
Something ‘implying’ is something quite different from presenting a fact. In this case it is untrue that products labeled ‘hypoallergenic’ would be better for sensitive skin. There are no tests, restrictions on ingredients that you may use, rules, guidelines or procedures in any form, anywhere in the world, which allows you to determine whether a product may carry the label “hypoallergenic” or not.
Each company can put on any product that is hypoallergenic, as there is no legislation that states that you can not claim it. So, it’s a statement that you can not prove, as there is no standard you could measure. Then it’s not so crazy that there are many products that would be hypoallergenic, but there are however problematic ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction. Unfortunately, the word “hypoallergenic” does not say anything about what you are wearing on your skin.
Skin Care Myth – 4: Age spots occasionally occur when you grow older.
Reality: First, the term ‘age spots’ is misleading. Brown, sprout-like skin discoloration has nothing to do with your age; they are a result of years of unprotected exposure to sunlight.
You can get sunspots of all ages, from the sprinkles on the nose of a child to the smooth, brown discoloration you can already get if you’re only half past twenty. For the treatment of sunburns, you do not really need a special product, but a product that contains ingredients that are proven to be effective against brown discolourations (such as niacinamide and certain forms of vitamin C). Using a solar filter product daily can have a remarkable positive and lasting effect.
Skin Care Myth – 5: Ultimately, you are always growing over your pimples.
Reality: Not true. People aged 20, 30, 40 or even 50 can suffer as much from pimples as teens, and the treatment is the same at any age.
Not everybody who has a teenage pimple will ever grow over there. Even if you have a problem-free skin as a teenager, it does not guarantee that you will not get any pimples at a later age, such as during menopause. And that mocking fact, you can completely blame your hormone condition. What is true is that men can grow over their pimples as their hormone levels remain stable after the puberty, while that of a woman continues to fluctuate throughout her life, which is why many women suffer from pimples during menstrual periods. And then we do not even agree on the relationship between pimples and nutrition, stress, or excessive cleansing of your face.
Skin Care Myth – 6: Makeup causes pimples.
Reality: Probably not. There is no research that shows that makeup and facial care products cause pimples. Nor is there any agreement about which ingredients cause or not to cause pimples.
In the late 1970s, research was conducted in which 100% of certain ingredients were applied to rabbit skin to see if they caused pimples. After that study, it was found that it was in no way related to the way women wear their makeup or use their skin care products, and it has never been repeated or considered relevant.
Still, some women get pimples if they use certain skin care products. Such pimples can be the result of an irritating ingredient or an inflammatory reaction, but it can also be a random reaction, or the result of ingredients that are only problematic for a specific skin type. That means you have to experiment to find out what your pimples are from. There is no medical or cosmetic research that can help you with this. You should also know that a term like non-comedian means nothing at all. The cosmetic industry occupies such terms to indicate that there is a chance that a product may cause pimples, but there is no standard or regulation that can categorize that label.
Skin Care Myth – 7: If a company says that a skin care product is effective, it is.
Reality: There is a whole industry in the world of skincare dealing with statements of evidence, and you can not quite agree with legitimate scientific research.
Laboratories, including those at some renowned universities, are extremely adept at examining studies that substantiate the results of what is left on a label or in an advertisement. An important fact that many consumers and doctors are unaware of, including a lot of doctors who engage in these dubious (and often completely false) investigations, is the question under which circumstances such studies are conducted. It is very important that you know that.
Skin Care Myth – 8: Buy only anti-wrinkle products in which collagen and elastin sit.
Reality: Collagen and elastin in skin care products can serve as excellent water-binding agents, but what they can not is fused to the natural amount of these supportive substances in the skin.
In most cases, the collagen molecule is too large to penetrate the skin. But even if he is small enough to be taken, he can not bind to the existing collagen in the skin, and there is no research at all that indicates that could. What does exist is a lot of research that shows that collagen is an excellent moisture regulating ingredient, which is very nice for the skin, but not unique, so you can also use other moisture regulating agents in a formula.
Skin Care Myth – 9: Everybody should use an eye cream.
Reality: There is no evidence, investigation or other material that substantiates the claim that the eye contours require other ingredients than your face, neck or decolleté.
Any product that contains sufficient antioxidants, emollients, skin repair and anti-inflammatory ingredients is very suitable for eye contours. Such ingredients do not have to be in a product that specifically states that it is an eye cream, gel or balm. They can be placed in any well formulated moisturizer and any well-formulated serum.
Whatever product you use for your eye contours, it must be well-formulated, apart from what it’s intended for the label, and it should be suitable for the skin type that you have around your eyes. Perhaps you like to use a product that says it’s a specific eye cream, but you can also use your usual facemoisturizer and / or your serum for your eye contours.
If the skin around your eyes is drier than that on the rest of your face, it does not mean that you need a special eye cream. In that case, you just need a moisturizer that is softer than the moisturizer you use for the rest of your face. However, make sure there are no fragrances in the product you are using. A well-formulated serum is also an excellent choice for your eyes (and there’s really no need for eye cream on the package). The same applies to an eyelid or serum.
Skin Care Myth – 10: There is a product where your wrinkles really disappear.
Reality: Unfortunately, there is no combination of products in any price range. So that your wrinkles really disappear or can be prevented. Daily use of a well-formulated product with a solar filter is the best thing you can do against wrinkles, but it has more effect.
The wrinkles that you see are the result of cumulative damage that has been caused through the sun. It is inevitable deterioration of the natural supporting structure of the skin. Skin care products that are sold or whatever they claim, can not replace what plastic surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists can.
There are literally thousands of anti-wrinkle products on the market, and better-selling beauty products are hardly any. But despite the abundance of products, plastic surgeons and dermatologists will not be seated without work.
