Top 3 Skincare Myths Debunked!
Debunking skincare myths are so fun. It helps us say goodbye to limiting beliefs that are not backed by facts. Sometimes, we follow certain things cause it was passed on, but how accurate are these 'facts'? Depending on your individual needs, the degree to which they can be true may differ from person to person.✨
Myth Number 1:
Reality: According to this website, it takes 1 to 2 weeks for a pimple to form. What more for ACNE? If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Be patient and allow your skin to heal. Consistency is the most important factor for your journey to achieving a healthier skin.
Myth Number 2
Reality: According to skincare.com, Using warm water to “open” your pores is technically impossible. Your pores aren’t muscles, so they can’t voluntarily open and contract regardless of water temperature.
“There is nothing that can physically make the pores smaller or bigger,”
Pores aren't temperature-sensitive. Instead, hot water makes the outer layers of skin swell, which makes pores look more "open". While warm water will not actually open up your pores, it can help clean out the gunk, grime and sebum that has accumulated inside.
Myth Number 3
Reality: You might think that because your skin is oily, it doesn't need to be moisturized—but you'd be wrong. If you don't use a moisturiser, your skin may become even more oily than it was before. A moisturiser, believe it or not, will give moisture to the skin, reducing the skin's impression of being overly dry. Adding moisture to the skin helps to minimise oiliness by slowing down the production of sebum.
