There are a lot of myths about using moisturizers that could be causing you issues, stopping you from looking your best, and dealing with your problem skin. Where these myths have come from, nobody knows, but the reality s a lot different to what you might hear from a wide variety of sources. Here are some of the most common myths surrounding moisturizer use that you need to know to make a real difference to your daily skincare routine.
Moisturizing is bad for oily skin
This particular myth stems from the fact that people who have oily skin think that moisturizer will only make things worth. But the reality is this couldn’t be further from the truth. There are certain moisturizers you should avoid, of course – those that contain oils – but whether you have oily or combination skin, the right moisturizer can really make a difference. Ultimately, you need to hydrate your skin to improve its appearance, and that’s all a moisturizer should do.
One size fits all
A lot of moisturizers on the market claim to be the solution for all your dry skin problems. But the reality is somewhat different, according to the many Gold Bond neck and chest cream reviews you will read online. Ultimately, there is a huge difference between the moisturizers you should use on your face and those you need for other areas of your body. So, make sure you find out which moisturizers are best for the different parts of your body, and you should start making a big difference in the quality of result for your skin.
One face fits all
Another common myth is that you can use a single cream to moisturize your entire face. But the skin on your face is different, too – under your eyes, for example, is a lot more delicate than on your forehead or cheeks. So, instead of getting an all-in-one facial cream, try out some eye moisturizers instead, as it will have a better impact and help you glow and sparkle.
Dry before you apply
If you wait until your skin is dry after having a bath or shower, then the moisturizer you use will actually have less of an impact. And let’s face it – most of us do this all the time. But, if you apply your moisturizer within a couple of minutes, while your skin is still damp, it will penetrate deeper because the pores in your skin start to close up.
Avoid when you get spots
We all suffer from the occasional breakout of spots every now and again, whether it is hormone or stress related. And the traditional advice is that you should never moisturize, as it can lead to further inflammation. But again, this is just a big old myth that needs debunking. Your skin needs hydrating regardless of whether or not you have spots, and letting it dry out can exacerbate the problem even further.
