MYTHS and TRUTHS About What WE Are Putting On Our Face!!!
Myths and Truths About Skin Care Products…
Myth: Expensive skincare is better than inexpensive.
Spending less doesn't always hurt your skin, and spending more doesn't always help it. Again, it's all about the formulation, concentration and potency of ingredients and getting the products as close to organic as possible.
Myth: It's good when your products cool or tingle skin.
Fact: This sensation is your skin telling you it is being irritated, not helped.
Counter-irritants are used to induce local inflammation in an effort to reduce inflammation in deeper or adjacent tissues. In other words, they substitute one kind of inflammation for another, which is never good for skin. Irritation or inflammation, no matter what causes it or how it happens, impairs the skin's immune and healing response. And although your skin may not show it or doesn't react in an irritated fashion, if you apply irritants to your skin the damage is still taking place and is ongoing, so it adds up over time (Experimental Dermatology, 2009 and Dermato-Endocrinology, 2011).
Myth: Use the products you like, regardless of what they contain.
Fact: Lots of people have problems with their skin because they often like what isn't good for skin.
That means jar packaging will not keep these ingredients stable, and so you would be short-changing your skin soon after the product is opened (think about how long a head of lettuce lasts in your refrigerator). What it takes to help your skin be at its best and to function normally and really fight wrinkles or acne or any other skin problem is far more complex than just using what you "like." This doesn't mean that you shouldn't like what you use, but do take the time to select from among products that are truly healthy and beneficial for skin. That is, take the time to read the ingredient list, because you can't determine the benefits intuitively.
“View Your Beauty Routine like the French”
French women value having beautiful skin and put a big emphasis on using the best skin care products. It is rather obvious due to how many facial salons there are, not only in the big city of Paris, but also the small villages around the country. They practically have as many skin care salons as we in the United States have nail salons. Monthly facials are a regular part of a woman’s life in France. In the U.S. we are so busy with our lives that we do not take the time to relax and care for ourselves with a nice pampering facial. Balancing our life and caring for your skin with natural and organic top of the line skin care products is a must to keep your skin youthful and glowing.
