Interesting Skincare Facts & Myths
There are so many crazy skincare facts and myths out there that I decided to do a little fact and myth article for all of you. Here are some of my favorites:
Myth: Milk causes acne
Fact: The milk itself does not cause acne, but the hormones that are given to the cows, which get into the milk cause acne
Solution: Drink organic milk
Myth: Certain skincare products will shrink my pores
Fact: Your pores cannot shrink, nor can they open or close. You can make them appear smaller however. For example, a product can tighten the skin which can give a temporary illusion of smaller pores.
Solution: Temporarily tighten pores for free with a splash of cold water after washing your face. The cold water will tighten skin, making pores temporarily appear smaller.
Myth: There are permanent hair removal options
Fact: No hair removal is permanent. Trust me, I have done it all and although “permanent” hair removal is helpful, it does not remove all hair and it is definitely not permanent.
Solution: Your options are shaving, depilatories, waxing, threading, electrolysis and laser hair removal.
