Do I need a separate eye cream? And if I layered different SPF products, will there be more protection? We answer these and other questions in our material. All that you read next - remember yourself and tell your friends, because together it is more effective to break stereotypes.
The more funds you use, the more productive and faster it works
And in fact? Excessiveness and wastefulness will more likely lead you to a beautician than to a brilliant result. Any product containing potent substances can irritate the skin if abused. The most common active substances that are designed to smooth the skin and fight wrinkles are vitamin C, retinol, glycolic acid. Salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are also active ingredients - they dry pimples. Such funds need to be applied dosed and pointwise - only where there is a need for it.
Absolutely everyone needs to use a tonic
And in fact? 90% of women can safely not do this. What is a tonic for? In order to control excess sebum production, in other words, so that the skin does not shine. In fact, many people just need to properly cleanse their skin every morning and do a cleansing mask once a week.
Perhaps you are wondering what kind of dirt remains on the cotton pad after cleansing with lotion. This is not dirt, but a normal amount of grease that darkens on contact with the cleaning agent and air. So a tonic is only necessary when you have very oily and acne-prone skin. If this is your case, try products containing salicylic acid.
The more different SPF products you apply, the more powerful your protection will be
And in fact? Do you think that if your day cream has an SPF of 30, foundation - 15, and powder - 10, then, adding all these numbers, you get 55? No. Unfortunately, protection is only counted according to the highest score. In our example, it is 30 units.
Lip gloss is addictive and dry
And in fact? Perhaps, without gloss, your lips do not feel very comfortable and you are not averse to applying it over and over again. But this is not an addiction at all! You just like a certain condition of your lips - moisturized and soft, they look so attractive! And the fault of dryness and peeling may be your habit of licking your lips. You don't even notice how you do it, because the shine is fragrant and delicious. If you want to stop, stop using it for a while. For a week, apply a cortisone cream to your lips or lubricate them with Bepanten. Then switch to a balm containing the same petroleum jelly, glycerin or mineral oils - it will not irritate and wear off quickly.
Always use eye contour cream
And in fact? Undoubtedly, the skin in this area is thinner, more delicate and requires more care. But this does not mean that only special equipment is suitable. If your face cream moisturizes well and does not contain fragrances, you can use it for the skin around the eyes with a clear conscience, observing elementary care (apply the cream without touching the moving eyelid).
Keep in mind that a day cream with a physical sun filter (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) is less irritating to the skin than a cream with chemical filters (avobenzone and oxybenzone). Apply the cream very gently with your fingertips (preferably the ring finger) to avoid damaging your delicate skin.
You won't see results if you don't use the entire line of a certain brand
And in fact? Your task is to find the most suitable products for you. The fact is that each brand for you personally can be strong in one thing - moisturizing, cleansing, etc. In order to find out this, there are testers! Don't neglect them. Try and look for what is right for you.
Only mascara deteriorates quickly
And in fact? Sure the recently celebrated biennial night cream is still great? We want to "please" you: there is nothing useful in it anymore. Over time, the active ingredients lose their properties and stop working. Worse, an old cosmetic is a great breeding ground for all sorts of bacteria. Remember the rule: do not store your skin care products for more than a year. And carefully look at the packaging: the shelf life of some products is 6, 12, 15 months from the date of opening. For control, mark the days when you open a new jar on the calendar.
Be careful: consider not only the expiration date, but also the storage conditions of the product. Creams stay "working" longer when kept in a dark, dry and cool place (bathroom is not the best choice), with a tightly closed lid. And don't put your fingers in them! There are special spatulas for this.
Acne appears from chocolate and fatty foods
And in fact? Relax and enjoy the treat. There is nothing in pizza or candy that will facilitate this process. But sushi, soy sauce and shellfish cause rashes, as they contain a large amount of iodine - a well-known provocateur.
Wrinkles only appear on dry skin
And in fact? Then the problem would be solved with conventional moisturizers. The main cause of aging is a decrease in collagen production. The sun is speeding up this process. If you want to stay young, use an anti-wrinkle cream with SPF and antioxidants, such as vitamin C. Moisturizers only improve the appearance.
Cold water narrows the pores
And in fact? Your skin (along with the pores) was inherited by you. There's nothing you can do about it, especially with cold water. To improve the appearance of enlarged pores, you must first of all clean them. Clogged with sebum and dead epidermal cells, they look bigger. Pores also stretch with age as the skin loses collagen.
