When you research your skin and how to best care for it, there is so much information out there its hard to know what exactly to believe and what is just gossip.
With the help of skincare experts and our very own Dr. Ryan Shelton, we are exposing the biggest lies you’ve been told about your skin and what you can do instead for actual results.
You Only Need 1 “Miracle Product”
The snake-oil salesman has been around for decades, promising you unbelievable results from just a single miracle cure. The reality is that there is no such thing as one miracle product that can deal with all skin ailments and provide drastic results. Instead of buying into miracle creams, you should focus on finding a comprehensive routine that is easy to use and effective because the products work together to provide real results.
If you suffer from wrinkles, dullness, or sagging skin, the best plan of attack is to use products that work in synergy to fight all your skincare woes. Products are formulated to be used together and when you use a comprehensive routine, you are 10x more likely to see results. If you are only using one product and hoping for a miracle, it’s time to invest in a routine!
Sun Is The Enemy
It seems like the world of skincare has waged a war on sunshine. While we agree that it can cause damage to your skin if you aren’t protecting and caring for your face, but it is also something our bodies need. The sun provides vitamin D which helps our skin cells repair and deliver important vitamins to our bodies.
Knowing how much sun your skin needs can be a balancing act but there are a few tips that make it easy. First, apply sunscreen before you go outside every day to avoid damage. Some dark spots like freckles are a natural genetic reaction to the sun, but you can help control them with a dark spot corrector that is formulated with powerful vitamin C. It will dull dark spots and make your skin glow!
All Products Are The Same
One of the worst skincare rumors of all time is that all products are almost identical and which ones you use don’t matter. There are three main types of skincare – cheap skincare filled with synthetic ingredients, Sephora-type skincare that is expensive because of fancy bottles, and cosmeceutical skincare which is often formulated by doctors and proven effective with science.
Using cosmeceutical ingredients is one of the most effective things you can do if you want to see fewer wrinkles and a younger-looking face. The best results will come from using a comprehensive cosmeceutical skincare routine that you know is backed by science and can deliver what it promises. Instead of spending your money on pretty packaging or the cheap option, a cosmeceutical based routine will help provide visible results in about 30 days!
