There’s a lot of noise in the skincare world when it comes to what practices are best for your complexion.
Should you use acids?
Is mineral oil bad for your skin?
Can you wash your face too much?
Knowing how to look after your skin will help you to get the most out of your products, as well as ensuring your complexion is glowing!
Here, we debunk 7 common skincare myths.
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.
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.
Dry skin doesn’t automatically age your skin. Sun exposure,pollution, smoking, diet, lifestyle and your genes all contribute towards ageing.
While dry skin doesn’t cause fines lines and wrinkles, it does emphasise them. Keep your skin hydrated with a hyaluronic acid serum.
Live Skincare Hydrate Serum is formulated with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and jojoba oil to replenish and plump your skin. It targets deep into the skin to help it retain water.
Unlike regular moisturising ingredients, hyaluronic acid holds 1000 times its weight in water, delivering a burst of hydration to your complexion.
Toothpaste contains ingredients like alcohol and baking soda which help to dry spots out. However, they don’t eliminate them.
The best treatments for blemishes are on the spot treatments containing salicylic acid. To keep your skin clear, use gentle and hydrating products.
Our Live Skincare Vitamin C serum is also highly effective for fighting spots. Use this after cleansing and toning to battle the bacteria which causes spots to form.
Our vitamin C serum also contains non pore clogging jojoba oil to gently nourish and organic aloe to soothe irritation and redness.
Pores are not temperature controlled. Using warm water can cause the outer layers of skin to swell, enabling pores to look larger and more open.
It’s best to use lukewarm water when you wash your face.
Every skin type is different but using more skincare products in your routine won’t make your skin look better.
7 and 10 step skincare routines are hugely popular in Asia. However, there is no evidence to suggest that these lead to improved skin.
Less can be more when it comes to skincare. A cleanser,toner, serum and moisturiser are all you need to promote healthier skin. It’s also important to use a SPF in the morning too.
Excess oil can actually be a sign of dehydrated skin. Oily skin types are still susceptible to pollution and UV rays which can cause skin damage and dry out the skin. All skin types require hydration.
You can use a regular moisturiser like Live Skincare Day & Night Moisturiser to nourish and balance your complexion, or you can use extra treatments like a hyaluronic acid serum alongside your moisturiser for extra hydration.
Moisturising your oily skin will help to restore balance, so you may find that your oiliness decreases once you start using a regular moisturiser in your beauty routine.
