Whether you are looking for advice or not, you will always have someone around who would love to school you on skincare. But, whether the tips from the old wives’ tales and the ever-famous tried and tested remedies would work or not, is another story.
Instead, oftentimes these generously shared beauty practices do more harm to your skin’s health and appearance than good.
Once and for all, let’s put these myths out in the open to identify and debunk them to start your journey to getting luminous and clear skin on a factual note!
Top 5 Skincare Myths
Myth Number 1:Don’t Wear Sunscreen On a Cloudy Day
You might have heard that wearing sunscreen on a cloudy day is not a necessity, which is the biggest skincare myth of all time. The main difference between a cloudy and sunny day is the variation in light and brightness. It has nothing to do with UV rays against which your skin needs protection.
The truth is, whichever the weather may be, the sun is going to emit UV rays. These rays accelerate the aging process, cause hyperpigmentation, affect moisture barrier, discoloration dark spots, and much more.
First things first, start wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect yourself against both UVA and UVB rays on any given day to avoid sun damage. Apply it 15 minutes before you step outside.
Product for You: Use Aloe Vera Gel to refresh and hydrate dehydrated and dry skin that needs comfort after spending long hours in the sun. Not only does it compensate for moisture loss but also perks up the complexion.
Myth Number 2: Sleeping With Makeup On Is Not Harmful
Sometimes after a long, tiring day, all you want to do is turn off the lights and drift into a deep slumber. But if you want your skin to look healthy and fresh, never skip removing makeup before calling it a night.
Your skin comes in contact with debris, dirt, pollutants, and other not-so-fun stuff throughout the day. These factors accompanied by a base of makeup cause buildup leading to clogged pores, itchiness, redness, and early appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. So, no, you won’t want this to happen to your skin. Reach home early if you can, but take off the makeup without a miss.

Myth Number 3: Eye Cream Is Not Important Until You Have Dark Circles and Bags
Eye creams are the most underestimated skin care products ever. Most people use eye creams only when they have to. Moreover, according to conventional wisdom, eye cream is an anti-aging product that you shouldn’t start until the early 30’s—a myth right there.
The good reason to cancel out this myth is understanding that the skin under the eyes is more delicate and thinner than the rest of your face. It gets weaker and more vulnerable due to the aging process, exposure to free radicals, pollutants, and UV rays: hence the visible signs of aging.
Applying a moisturizing retinol cream helps with reducing the look of wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, bags, and puffiness. Meanwhile, the antioxidant ability of retinol in this cream provides protection from sun damage.
With this many benefits, debunking this skincare myth is only in your skin’s best interests.

Myth Number 4: Oily Skin Type Doesn’t Need A Moisturizer
Greasiness and shiny texture might be the most lamented concerns for the oily skin type, but you can’t blame that on a moisturizer—the cause is excess sebum production. Sebum, the skin’s natural oil, keeps it looking supple, soft, and smooth. Its excess clogs pores, giving rise to breakouts, acne, and irritations.
In order to reduce the excessive oiliness, your saving grace is frequent washing but using a clarifying cleanser ends up disrupting the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Applying a lightweight and oil-free moisturizer helps with promoting a fresh, clear, and radiant complexion. It also boosts hydration levels that you need to preserve youthful and firm skin texture for a long time.
Product For You: Tea Tree Face Cream with ceramides, shea butter, and tea tree oil is an excellent moisturizing cream. It quickly penetrates without leaving a greasy feel while promoting a silky smooth texture. It suits all skin types.
Myth Number 5: Hot Water Opens The Pores
Steam facial adds shine, vibrancy, and freshness to the complexion. Just because an age-old myth suggests that steam opens the pores, don’t miss out on its numerous benefits. For one, steam dilates the blood vessels helping to deep cleanse the pores and, as a result removing whiteheads and blackheads. Secondly, it increases circulation and delivers hydration, leaving your skin with a healthy glow. Thirdly, it also releases trapped bacteria, sebum, and dirt that leads to pimples.
However, being careful and understanding your skin’s unique needs is the key to keeping it in its best condition. Doing a steam facial once 15 days for 5 minutes is a better approach to reap its beauty-enhancing attributes.
