Myths about your skin

that you should stop believing

With so much being said by different people about what’s good or bad for your skin, it’s hard to tell what’s true and what isn’t. Here are some common skin care myths, debunked:

Wearing makeup regularly makes you age faster

There is no way that makeup on its own is going to make you age quicker. Most contemporary cosmetic products nourish your skin and protect it from the sun, so it’s safe to say that makeup won’t make you age. What will make you age faster is sleeping with your makeup on. Going to bed with makeup clogs pores and can lead to breakouts. So make sure you cleanse your face before the day ends.

Drinking more water is all you need for good skin

Water is good for your skin and overall health, but it plays a small part in improving the quality of skin. It is essential that you use skin care products that are suitable for your skin, as well as sunscreen to protect yourself from harsh UV rays. Adding fruits, vegetables and healthy fats to your diet can also go a long way in improving your skin.

The new Dawn range of lotions and creams has an option for all skin types. Why? Because Dawn stands for confidence and celebrating natural and diverse beauty with natural ingredients. We provide a solution for every skin need from very dry, sensitive to dull skin.

Using hot water will open and cleanse your pores

Showering or bathing in scorching hot water will do more harm than good. Hot water can dehydrate your skin and cause it to produce more oil, which can trigger any existing sensitivity. The best water to bath or shower in is lukewarm water.

Your makeup has enough SPF to protect you from the sun

Most foundations have SPF in them, but they offer very little protection from the sun. Rather use face sunscreen under your makeup for added protection.
