Myth 1: You can’t over wash your skin
Over washing your skin, either by using a harsh foaming product or by simply cleansing your face too much, leads to dryness and irritation as it strips the skin of its natural oils.
Cleansing your face morning and evening is perfectly fine –just use a gentle cleansing lotion to keep your complexion balanced.
Myth 2: Applying a high SPF gives you longer protection from the sun
While technically a high SPF like factor 50 provides 50 times longer protection from the sun than not using sunscreen, you still need to reapply your sun protection during the day.
If you’ve been swimming or for a quick dip, your sunscreen will need to be reapplied for sun protection.
In extreme heat, its also recommended to take regular breaks from the sun to prevent dehydration and heat exhaustion.
