It has been said that if you look at someone’s skin it can tell you a whole lifetime of stories, including their lifestyle choices and their skin care routine.

What does your skin say about you?

If you are confused about what to believe and what not to believe when it comes to skin care then take a look at these 5 common skin care myths, so you can give the care and attention to your skin that it truly deserves.

Myth 1 - Acne is only associated with teenagers

magnifying-glass-girlThis couldn’t be further from the truth. One in five women between the ages of 25 and 40 suffer from adult acne. The causes of adult acne are still unknown but there are certain factors that can cause a flare up, including certain cosmetics, stresses of everyday life, hormones, poor diet and bacteria. It is important that you manage these factors in your life to reduce flare-ups. Treating your adult acne is not the same as treating a teenager’s skin for acne. Teenager’s acne products are geared towards younger oily skin and that is something that you want to avoid. Always choose a natural adult acne treatment that will help soothe and repair your skin.

Myth 2 – Exfoliating leads to more breakouts

Exfoliating your skin helps remove dead skin cells and prevents your pores becoming clogged, which can be a huge problem especially if you suffer from problem skin. Clogged skin can also increase your chances of a sudden skin flare-up. When you exfoliate your skin it speeds up the renewal process of dead skin cells, which will leave you with beautiful glowing skin.

SPF-40-Mineral-SunscreenMyth 3 – Sunscreen is only for sun bathing

You should never leave the house without protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Your daily moisturizer should contain an SPF 15 to protect your skin whatever the weather and if you’re heading to the beach or spending a lot of time outside then you should be wearing a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, even on a cloudy day the sun’s ultraviolet rays can escape through the clouds, which are extremely damaging to your skin.

Myth 4 – Never cover-up your blemishes

A lot of people are under the impression that if they cover up their blemishes it will clog up their pores which will automatically cause a sudden flare-up. This is certainly true if you use make-up that is geared towards people with normal skin but if you suffer from sensitive skin then using a concealer that contains salicylic acid can do wonders for your skin. Not only will it cover your blemishes but salicylic acid will help fight them. Using make-up that is made for people with sensitive skin is the perfect way to fight against problem skin.

Myth 5 - Toothpaste will dry out blemishes

Toothpaste is certainly not meant for your skin as it irritates and burns your skin, leading to further break-outs. Toothpaste contains ingredients such as bleaching agents and whitening ingredients, so why would you want to put that on your skin? Avoid toothpaste and instead use a natural product that is made especially to fight blemishes and pimples like ZENMED Acne therapy for dry/mature skin.

Avoiding these 5 common skin care myths will leave your skin radiant and glowing for many years to come.
