The products we buy for our skin may actually be damaging. Check out these myths!

Myth: Vigorously scrubbing skin with soap will cure acne.

It can make acne worse. Wash your face 1-2 times daily with warm water and gentle cleansers (http://www.neutrogena.ca/cleansers). Pat with a fresh towel.

Myth: Higher SPF = better protection.

Regardless of SPF, most sunscreens only protect from UVB rays — not harmful UVAs. Choose a broad spectrum SPF 15-30.

Myth: Junk food causes acne.

Greasy residue from junk food can aggravate acne, but there’s no link from eating it.

Myth: Popping pimples is the fastest way to clear them.

You actually push more bacteria and oil in — and it can scar.

Myth: Steam opens pores.

Pores don’t open or close… but steam helps cleanse and moisturize.

Myth: Shaving makes new hair thicker/darker.

The blade creates a blunt edge, making hair feel thicker.

Myth: Tanning cures acne.

While it might zap some pimples, UV rays stimulate oil production!

Myth: Tanning booths are safer than the sun.

You get 12x more UVA exposure, and your risk for cancer skyrockets.

Myth: Natural products are better.

Ideal products blend natural and synthetic ingredients.

Myth: Drinking lots of water will moisturize skin.

No link here — dehydration doesn’t dry your skin.

Go spread the word on these skin myths!
