4 Skin Care Myths

4 Skin Care Myths

There are so many contradicting articles about what products you can and cannot use in your skin care regimen. Some articles are pure and others are sponsored by brands wanting you to use their products. Here are 4 skin care myths that are simply untrue.

1. You can not mix Niacinamide and Vitamin C Together

According to webMD, Niacinamide is one form of Vitamin B3. It helps with flushing issues such as rosacea and eczema.

According to Paula’s Choice’s research, these two products can work within conjunction with each other.

We tested it at My Unbounded Life, and we approve with using niacinamide and vitamin c together.

2. Your acne gets better the older you get

This is untrue. If you have acne-prone skin when you are younger you will have it when you are older. You can also get acne as you age.

3. Makeup causes acne

Actually not cleaning the skin properly and having clogged pores causes acne, not makeup.

4. Alcohol is bad for your skin

This is a huge skin care myth. All alcohol is not bad for your skin. In fact, it can help your skin. 

There are actually some good “fatty” alcohols in some skin care products such as cetyl, stearyl, and cetearyl alcohol.

 If alcohol is listed as the first several ingredients, then avoid the products, it will be too drying and your skin will actually produce more oils to replace the oils stripped from it.
