5 lying things that prevent you from being groomed

Do not store beauty products in the bathroom - they will lose their effectiveness.

On the one hand, it is a myth. Most global brands undergo 90-day testing and are designed to withstand the extremely low and high temperatures they may be exposed to during transportation. So nothing will happen to them in your bathroom. However, on the other hand, if you leave funds open or use tools that you need to collect with your fingers or a spatula, you must be prepared for the fact that microbes can multiply in them. There are usually many germs in the bathroom, so it is best to buy products in tubes or with a dispenser, so that neither the air nor your fingers come into contact with the product. Also, do not forget to close the tool tightly after use with the lid, keep it away from direct sunlight and water. And remember - humidity is the ideal breeding ground for germs. So try to keep the bathroom as dry and clean as possible.

If you have dark skin, you do not need to apply sunscreen

Of course, dark skin rarely burns and tan burns on it well, but this does not mean that it is not at risk of photo-aging or skin cancer. Very dark skin has a natural SPF protection of about 13–16 and filters twice as much ultraviolet radiation as white skin, but this does not mean that it is immune to damage from the sun. People with darker skin often have the feeling that they have natural, complete protection from the sun and do not need sunscreen, since they practically do not burn. But skin is skin, and it should always be protected.
@ sandrabendrePeople with dark skin should also be checked for signs of melanoma (skin cancer) from time to time, especially if they have burned in the past.

Good genes = good skin

Another myth.

If your grandmother and mother look amazing for their age, it does not guarantee that your skin will age the same? Although genetics play a role in the aging process, external factors and lifestyle factors such as stress, sun, smoking, environmental pollution and diet, affect the overall appearance of your skin. So don't stop caring for your skin, even if you have good genes.

You should start using eye cream from the age of 20.

It's right!

The skin around the eyes is very thin and most prone to the early appearance of wrinkles (by the way, like the skin of the hands). The delicate skin around the eyes may suffer due to permanent makeup (and friction in the process of removing it), not to mention such natural facial movements as squinting and blinking, which cause facial wrinkles.

To care for the skin around the eyes, look for moisturizers without chemical additives with titanium dioxide and SPF, as well as with lactic acid to reduce wrinkles. At 30 you can already switch to more powerful products with peptides and retinol in the composition. Apply the product with a pad of the ring finger - a gentle light touch. Also apply a thin layer of the agent in order not to weigh down the skin, and try to avoid eyelashes so that the agent does not get into the mucous membrane.

If you have SPF protection, your skin is fully protected.

This is not true!

A small amount of SPF protection in a tonal framework is not enough to fully protect your skin from UV radiation and damage. You should use about a teaspoon of sunscreen on your face and neck to get the protection that is indicated on the tube. In addition, in daylight (and especially in beach conditions), you need to re-apply protection every two hours. One of the mistakes is to apply sunscreen in the morning and it goes all day without updating the protection. Also, remember: if you apply a moisturizer with SPF 15 and a tonal with SPF 30 - this will not give you SPF 45 protection - the real protection is likely to be at the level of SPF20.
@ sandrabendreAlso worth remembering that, even if you are indoors for most of the day and only go from car to office, you still need daily protection. Even fluorescent lamps emit ultraviolet rays, and by the way, you also get considerable ultraviolet radiation when you drive a car every day.
