4 Skincare Myths Debunked: Separating Fact from Fiction for Healthy, Glowing Skin

4 Skincare Myths Debunked: Separating Fact from Fiction for Healthy, Glowing Skin

Get ready to separate fact from fiction as we debunk some of the most common skincare myths that may be standing between you and the radiant complexion of your dreams.

Myth #1: "You don't need moisturiser if you have oily skin."

Reality: It's a common misconception that oily skin doesn't need moisturiser, but the truth is, even oily skin can benefit from hydration. Skipping moisturiser can actually backfire by causing your skin to produce even more oil in an attempt to compensate for dryness. Instead, opt for a lightweight, moisturiser like The Limelight or Sol (gel moisturiser) to keep your skin balanced and hydrated without clogging pores.

Myth #2: "You can shrink your pores."

Reality: Hate to burst your bubble, but pore size is largely determined by genetics and can't be permanently changed. While you can't physically shrink your pores, you can minimise their appearance by keeping your skin clean with Purified or Refined, exfoliating regularly with Polished, and using products like The Foundation that contain ingredients like Vitamin C and Retinol, which can help improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of pores over time.

Myth #3: "Popping pimples makes them go away faster."

Reality: We've all been tempted to squeeze that pesky pimple in hopes of making it disappear faster, but popping pimples can do more harm than good. Popping can push bacteria deeper into the skin, leading to inflammation, infection, and even scarring. Opt for a double cleanse and nourishment instead of punishing your skin.

Myth #4: "SUPER expensive skincare products are better."

Reality: Price doesn't always equal quality when it comes to skincare. Whilst we absolutely appreciate quality skincare worthy of the price tag, let’s just say there is smoke and mirrors…. Is your money going to fancy influencer trips instead of being reinvested back into keeping your skincare products top notch? Rest assured, we have YOU at the heart of everything we do for your skin. 

Remember, when it comes to skincare, knowledge is power—so arm yourself with the facts and let your skin shine!
