3. No moisturisers for oily skin

One of the most common myths that is doing the rounds is oily skin doesn’t require moisturising. It stems from the logic that the skin will get too oily and aggravate the acne, if any. However, when you stop applying moisturiser, the skin releases excessive oil due to dehydration.

Oily skin will produce more oil if you don’t moisturise.  Regular skin care creams will help keep the oil production in check and might eventually result in less oily skin.

4. No Sunscreen for winters

We often skip our sunscreens when we have a stay at home job or when it’s a cloudy. It may seem that the sun rays cannot reach us. However, the damaging UV rays can hurt skin with or without clouds since they can penetrate clouds. Also, sunscreens can help prevent skin cancer.

5. Serums are for all

Serums with a blend of moisturiser is like sparkle to skin, especially if you have a dry skin texture. Applying a layer of moisturiser on top of the serum locks the nutrients within the pores. However, not all types of serums are meant for all skin types.

Some people may be hypersensitive to retinol or vitamin A as they can degrade or oxidize before absorption. In such cases, you must consult with your dermatologist. Further, everyone must do a patch test before applying serums as they contain active ingredients.

Moreover, always apply a moisturiser at the end of your skincare routine. These skin care steps are brilliant ideas if it’s chilly outside or if you have naturally dry skin.

6. If it burns, it’s working

Skincare experts say that a little tingling sensation is normal when you are introducing a new skincare product. But, stinging or burning is clearly a sign of inflammation. If you feel a burning sensation after applying a product, you could have sensitive skin or be allergy-prone to one or multiple ingredients in the product.

If the sensation does not go away, consult a dermatologist immediately.

1. Should I change my skincare routine regularly?

There is o need to alter your skin care regimen if it works for your skin texture. You might need to adjust to new items with active components, though.

2. My skin feels tight after cleansing. Is that a warning sign?

When the skin constricts, it is surface dry and is in need of moisture to re-establish equilibrium. Prefer using a toner or a moisturiser to soften your skin.

3. Do chocolates cause acne?

There is no evidence that eating fast food or chocolate causes acne. However, excessive sugar (found in fast food and chocolate) can cause bodily inflammation that can exacerbate acne.
