5 Skincare Routines That Are Actually Myths!
We've all been hearing about a lot of makeup routines and most of us are willing to try it all so that our skin looks perfect all the time. It's all fair, to be honest. There's nothing wrong in taking care of your skin. You can use all the products you want with a proper prescription; but, are you sure you're following these skin routines the right way? Let's ensure a good and a healthy skin by busting some myths, shall we?
Apply Sunscreen Only On Sunny Days
If you think you don't need to apply sunscreen on cloudy days, you're highly mistaken. Your skin needs to be protected from all kinds of damage caused by the UV rays. So, even though the sky is cloudy, the UV rays will penetrate and damage your skin. In order to avoid that, make it a habit of using sunscreen on all days… even when you're planning to laze around in your pajamas.

No Immediate Effect = Change Product
Do not, I repeat, do not make this mistake. If a product doesn't have an immediate effect on your skin, do not change it. Give your skin the time to adapt to the product's compositions; especially, if it has been prescribed by a dermatologist. But, if you're having a reaction because of the product, do consult your dermatologist. Every skin product takes about three months to effectively work on your skin.
Dark Skin = No Sunburn
Just because you're dusky, doesn't mean you should avoid using a sunscreen. It is possible for all skin tones to get a sunburn. Of course, it is easier for light skinned people to get sunburn easily, but a lot of dusky complexioned people have been diagnosed with skin cancer later in their lives.
Makeup Causes Acne
It's not makeup that causes acne; it is your habit of not removing it properly that causes acne. So, go put as much as makeup you want, but be sure to clean your face really well at the end of the day.
Use Hot Water For Getting Rid Of Oily Skin
Using hot water actually, opens up all the pores in your skin making way for more and more oil. So, if you've been using hot water or lukewarm water to wash your face, avoid it. Use normal tap water and your skin will be just fine.
If you've been following any of these skin routines, it's time to give them up and take up better ones.
