The Truth Behind THOSE Skincare Myths

by Posted in Lifestyle .

Chocolate causes acne, you can scrub away blackheads, cellulite can be easily removed, and  there’s one weird trick that can make you look twenty years younger.

The internet allows us access to a wealth of knowledge when it comes to skin care – but how do we know if what we are reading is true? Everyone wants better skin, but what happens if we’re actually doing more harm than good because of reading the wrong things?

If you’re unsure about what you can or can’t believe, don’t worry, because we’re here to help! The experts here at Skinstation have separated fact from fiction to reveal the real truth behind some of the most common and popular skin care myths.

Chocolate Causes Acne

How many times have you been told that chocolate is directly responsible for the number of spots that you’ve got? How about being told that chocolate is the cause of acne? This is something that has been whispered about for years but is there any truth behind it?

Chocolate isn’t good for your waistline, but does it really have the power to bring on acne? The truth is that our stress hormones are behind a lot of breakouts, and what do most people do when feeling stressed? Reach for the chocolate – hence the common link between the two. However, this doesn’t mean that they are completely unrelated. Chocolate is high in carbohydrates and dairy and THESE are definitely linked to acne breakouts. 

You Should Only Use Natural Ingredients

A lot of people rave about the benefits of using natural ingredients on their skin – going au natural is surely a lot healthier than using products that are full of chemicals – right?!

Whilst using products with extremely high quality natural ingredients can have brilliant benefits for your skin, this isn’t the case across the board. Certain oils can actually have a detrimental effect on skin that is already sensitive. For example, tea tree oil and cinnamon has been known to cause skin irritation.

Toothpaste Will Solve Your Pimple Problem

We can remember being told by our grandma to pop some toothpaste on a spot after noticing that one has appeared on the face. It’s been considered “a thing to do” for as long as we can remember – but is there any evidence to back it up?

Toothpaste can actually be extremely irritating to the skin – causing redness and peeling. Most toothpastes contain ingredients that cause inflammation which isn’t ideal for most people but especially not for those with sensitive skin.

You Only Need to Use Products Until You See Improvement

You’ve got the results you want – finally – so you might as well pack up and put away all your anti-aging ingredients right?

A lot of people tend to make this assumption and it couldn’t be more wrong. Whilst you’ve achieved the results you want, you need to continue using your products in order to maintain your glowing skin! Anti-aging products are a long term solution rather than a short term fix.
