6 Common Skin Care Myths


Sponsored Content Feb 05, 2019.

Articles For Rick Smith MD in East Lansing, MI

1. Antibacterial soap for your skin to keep looking clean - The antibacterial variety strips the natural moisture of skin, making it look dull. 2. You don’t need to apply sunscreen on cloudy days - Cloudy or rainy, ultra violet rays have the potential to penetrate clouds. You need to apply sunscreen every day of the year, no excuses!3. Toothpaste to zap a zit! – Toothpaste can actually burn your skin. Additionally, most drugstore brand toothpaste contains sodium laurel sulfate which is a known pore-clogger. 4. Popping a zit will make it go away faster – It actually spreads the bacteria and will take longer to get rid of blemishes. 5. Younger people do not need anti-aging products – Starting an anti-aging regimen in your 20s can delay the signs of aging. The earlier you start using them, the longer you keep your skin looking young. 6. Foundation with SPF can replace sunscreen - A sunscreen protects against UVA and UVB rays effectively. It would take seven times the normal amount of foundation to get the desired amount of SPF.
