Skin Myths Debunked

Skin Myths Debunked

When it comes to caring for one’s skin, or applying some sort of treatment offered from a San Francisco clinic, there are plenty of myths around. Believing them can cause people to lose plenty of time at best, or at worst, risk their own health. As such, knowing what they are is crucial to avoiding mistakes.

Lying in the Sun for Vitamin D

While it is true that exposure to the sun helps the body with vitamin D, it is by no means the best way. Indeed, ultraviolet light can cause cancer, and thus is quite dangerous. Rather than lying in the sun, one should seek shade as much as possible, and always ensure they are using sunscreen. As far as vitamin D goes, there are supplements one can get it from.

No Sleeping with Makeup On

Another common myth that goes around is that sleeping with makeup on is extremely bad for one’s skin, when this simply isn’t the case. Indeed, if one wears their makeup on for a number of hours during the day, there is no difference if that makeup is still on during the night. The real problem with going to sleep with one’s makeup on is that it means one hasn’t gotten a chance to cleanse their skin.

Base Tans Protect From Burns

For one’s cells, every tan is seen as damage to the cellular network, which needs to be repaired. If this is repeated a lot during one’s lifetime, it may lead to mutations, which may lead to skin cancer. Protection, in this regard, is much better than having to seek a skin treatment in San Francisco later on.

Facial Exercises Can Drive Wrinkles Away

Once wrinkles form, there is no way to get rid of them naturally, and this is the sad truth. While there are massages one can do to relax the skin, and keep wrinkles from deepening, there is no exercise that can erase them. In fact, some exercises may even aggravate the ones that are already there, due to constant movement of the muscles.

Moisturizers Don’t Work

While many people swear by their moisturizers, some say that regardless of how much of those they apply, their skin is still dry. What is probably happening in this case is that the skin may have too many layers of dead-cell-buildup, which is blocking the moisturizers. As such, they should exfoliate first.
