4 Made-Up Makeup Myths Wiped Clean

Myth 1: Choose Skincare Products Based On Your Age

Many products out there claim to be designed for specific age groups, such as treating wrinkles or age spots. The fact is age is not a skin type. An individual in their 50s can have the same skin issues and skin type as their teenage kid. Oily, dry skin and clogged pores don’t have an age limit. If you don’t find the right skin treatment you are likely to suffer the same skin issues for the majority of your life. However, you should start to fight signs of aging as soon as you see the symptoms.

Myth 2: Hypoallergenic Products Are Better For Sensitive Skin

“Hypoallergenic” really means that a product is unlikely or less likely to cause an allergic reaction, therefore being better for allergy-prone or sensitive skin types. However, there are no ingredient restrictions or regulations for a product to qualify as being hypoallergenic. When looking for a good skin care product, look for gentle, fragrance-free products packed with soothing, skin-replenishing ingredients and minimal chemicals. A quick Google search can help a lot!

Myth 3: Makeup Causes Acne

Find some credible research showing makeup causes acne, I dare you. The reason people believe this is because most aren’t removing makeup correctly and consistently. When you don’t get all your makeup off at night or fall asleep in it, this means the ingredients that your pores are going to get clogged. Any anti-acne medications used will just sit on top of the skin instead of being absorbed.

Myth 4: All Natural is Better

A product that is 100 percent natural doesn’t mean that you won’t have a bad reaction to it. For example, some naturally occurring oils that fight acne can be too heavy for your skin and cause it to worsen. Ask your skin care specialist to diagnose your skin type and visit your local allergist to find out what could cause problems.
