5 Common Skin Care Myths Debunked

by Tara Mackey |

Let's break down some of the most common skincare myths out there, shall we?

Myth 1: Botox is the only way to reverse wrinkles
 
Answer: False

Botox is a neurotoxin. Let's repeat that. It’s a neurotoxin: a poison that acts on the nervous system. It doesn't reverse wrinkles as much as it freezes your face so you can't make the faces that show your wrinkles. Oh PS: the results don’t last! 
 
So why would you turn to a poison, when there’s a proven natural alternative?
 
Hibiscus is deemed "natural botox" for a good reason. Elastin is what keeps our skin looking firm, youthful, and less wrinkled. Hibiscus has great anti-aging benefits because it maintains elastin in the skin by decreasing the enzyme that breaks it down. Hibiscus also has a ton of vitamin C, which is vital for collagen production. This is truly the perfect combination serum: hibiscus is a main ingredient for just this reason. 
 
Because of all of it’s work as a botox alternative, it’s dubbed the Cellular Recovery Serum! Simply 
apply a generous to trouble spots. GO. Done.

Myth 2: Oils and Creams Can Increase Your Breast Size
 
Answer: True 
 
It’s true, but complicated. Many creams out there contain one or two active ingredients that may contribute to breast growth, but are mostly full of toxins (like PEGs and Parabens) that you don’t want anywhere NEAR your breasts.
 
Enter the only organic oil of it’s kind: the Activated Enhancement Oil. Made with 100% organic ingredients and no fillers, a daily massage with our phytoestrogen dominant formula will no doubt change your mind about the possibilities of DIY breast enhancement. Just ask thousands of happy customers!

Myth 3: You get acne because you don’t wash your face

Answer: False false false!
 
Though it’s a popular myth, it is, indeed, a myth. You won’t get acne just because you don’t wash your face correctly or frequently enough (it sure helps if you do, though.)
 
In order for acne to develop, you need to have a combination of four factors: clogged pores from shedding keratin/skin cells, sebum, bacteria and inflammation. So, while not washing your face certainly won’t help the problem, it’s not the sole cause of acne.
 
What helps your sebum balance, bacteria and inflammation? The proper routine. The detox repair serum contains high concentrations of French green clay and the finest quality activated charcoal to tackle bacteria and inflammation, as well as organic hydrating oils to replenish your skin’s natural pH.

Myth 4: Don’t Moisturize If You Have Oily Skin
 
Answer: False
 
Most cleansers will strip the natural oils from your skin which messes up your pH balance, so you will need to replace that protective layer. If you really want to skip steps, try oil cleansing. Simply use your favorite serum, apply to your face, let it sit for a few seconds and wash off with a dry cloth.
 
No matter what your skin type—oily and acne-prone or dry and dehydrated—you need to be using some kind of serum to keep your skin balanced and nourished. The differences lie in the type and amount of moisturizer your skin needs. While oily skin requires the least amount of moisture, a moisturizer is still vital for nourishing and hydrating the skin. When choosing a moisturizer, choose a hydrating serum or lotion versus a heavy cream.
