Myth #1: Tanning is good for you.
Back in the day, bronzed beauties were in vogue. Think about the models of the 1980s like Christie Brinkley – the tan was “the thing” not that long ago. Even today, scores of women of all ages hit the tanning beds when the real thing is not available or to prepare for an upcoming vacation or wedding. But the fact of the matter is that sporting a suntan is actually not good for your skin.
Tanning causes damage to your skin that may include wrinkles and spotting. The best way to prevent this from happening is to wear sunscreen each and every day. A little goes a long way.
Myth #2: The heavier the moisturizer, the better.
This is not exactly true. For a long time, the idea was the more products you slathered on your face, the fewer wrinkles you would have. But the reality is that less is more. An Elle.com articles suggests, “heavy creams can create a barrier on the surface of your face and keep your skin from absorbing moisture.” A better option would be to choose a lightweight cream or serum.
Myth #3: Using egg whites on your skin can reduce cellulite.
This is not exactly true. While it may reduce the appearance of cellulite for a short time, it is definitely not a long term fix for the problem. Two products that can be used to decrease the appearance of cellulite for a special night out are self-tanner and moisturizer.
Myth #4: Wearing makeup every day is harmful to your skin.
The truth is it isn’t the makeup that can cause issues with your facial skin, it’s the failure to wash it all off at the end of each day that can cause the problems. Be sure to follow a skincare regime that includes cleansing the skin and moisturizing it.
