Skincare is something that most of us consider extremely important and is an integral part of our daily routine. For many, having the perfect skin isn’t just about looking attractive or beautiful, it is a source of great pride and gives them confidence. You only have to type in skincare into your browser or YouTube search bar and you will be bombarded with clickbait videos on what is good for your skin and what might be the reason for your acne problem. And whenever something is as popular as skincare, there are bound to be many myths, misconceptions and downright lies that people believe and spread.
While many of the so-called ‘skincare tips’ may just be ineffective, some of them can be outright detrimental to your skin. Let us look at some of these skincare myths that you might have heard and try to find the truth behind them.
Myth #1: You only need to take care of your face!
While it is true that your face is the first thing that people notice about you, it is far from the only part of your skin that requires your constant care and attention. The skin on your arms, feet, elbows, and knees are equally important and are prone to dryness and wrinkles too. This means that you have to regularly moisturise and gently cleanse it to retain its youthful and vibrant appearance.
When it comes to taking care of the skin in your hands and the rest of your body, Intense & Deep Moisturising Body Lotion and Moisturising & Nourishing Hand Cream from BeYouTé is your preferred solution. The special formula in BeYouTé Advanced Skincare products gets quickly absorbed into your skin and keep it soft and supple while reducing the damage caused by environmental factors. Regularly apply it as you wake up or go to bed and watch in wonder as your hands and feet retain its youthful appearance.
Myth #2: It is okay to go to bed with your makeup still on.
After a hard and tiring day of work, the last thing on your mind would be to spend time taking off your makeup before hitting the bed. However, this can affect your skin in a bad way as your makeup can mix with dirt and oil as you sleep and can cause your pores to get clogged. And anyone with a passing knowledge on the basics of skincare will tell you that clogged pores are the worst as can lead to breakouts and all kinds of skin problems. Your skin needs to breathe, and clogged pores stop it from breathing freely.
Thankfully, removing your makeup is a lot easier with BeYouTé Micellar Water- Soothing & Hydrating Cleanser on hand. The gentle all-in-one cleanser from QNET contains tiny oil particles called ‘micelles’, which traps dirt and other particles while removing makeup. It is easy to use and does not require you to spend hours trying to wash off your makeup. And best of all, it is free of any alcohol and does not burn your skin.
You can also use the Deep Cleansing & Purifying Gel to remove any makeup and dirt on your skin. With its patented CM-Glucan, Deep Cleansing & Purifying Gel repairs and rejuvenates your skin while maintaining its natural pH levels.
Myth #3: You do not need sunscreen if it is not sunny outside.
Not only is this a myth with no scientific backing, but it is also downright detrimental to your skin’s health. Constant exposure to the sun can cause your skin to lose its elasticity, age faster, develop wrinkles and even lead to skin cancer in the long run.
BeYouTé Protective & Age Defence Day Cream comes with SPF12 protection and can be used in any situation to keep your skin safe from the harmful radiations of the sun. Its soothing effects keeps your skin safe from the UV rays of the sun and the damage caused by free radicals while keeping it moisturised. This prevents the formation of wrinkles and ageing of the skin, all while giving it a healthy glow.
Myth #4: You do not need to start using eye cream yet.
Many people are under the impression that they do not need to use eye cream as they haven’t developed wrinkles or lines under their eyes yet. However, this is not the case! The skin around your eyes is extremely delicate and thin and is the first part of your face that will show signs of ageing. It is never too early to start taking care of the skin, especially around the eyes.
BeYouTé Lifting & Firming Eye Zone Gel is a hydrating gel specially formulated for the delicate skin around your eyes. It helps stop the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines under the skin and giving it a radiant glow. And with its anti-inflammatory and healing properties, it can improve your skin’s overall health while keeping it safe from damaging external factors like pollution, UV radiation and more.
Myth #5: You do not need to use moisturiser if you have oily skin.
Contrary to common belief, having oily skin does not mean that you do not have to use a moisturiser. Factors like UV radiation, pollution and excessive cleaning can all cause your skin to lose its moisture and ruin its balance. This in turn leads your skin to produce more oil as it tries to compensate for the lost moisture, making it appear shinier and oiler than before.
BeYouTé has a large number of options when it comes to moisturising creams and allows you to choose the best product for your skin. Refreshing & Radiant Moisturising Mask and Restoring & Nourishing Night Cream from BeYouTé are the preferred moisturisers for many as it allows you to stay moisturised and keeps your skin hydrated, nourished and healthy. It improves the elasticity of the skin, improves collagen synthesis, and repairs the skin from the inside, making them a valuable addition to any skincare routine.
These are just some of the myths that might be preventing you from having smooth and soft skin. While it can be hard to discern what is good for your skin and what is a myth, there is an easy answer to good skin- BeYouTé.
