Skincare Myths: Fact or Fiction

Skincare Facts:

Sunscreen is Essential: Fact. Research consistently demonstrates the efficacy of sunscreen in preventing skin damage caused by UV rays. Regular use of a sunscreen with SPF such as our Protec Plus Mineral Sunscreen helps reduce the risk of skin cancer and premature aging.

Hydration is Key: Fact. Scientific studies support the importance of maintaining skin hydration for optimal health and appearance. Both internal hydration through adequate water intake and external moisturization contribute to skin well-being. A lightweight moisturizer such as our Botanica Souffle Creme® helps hydrate and maintain the skin's barrier.

Consistency Matters: Fact. Consistency is key when it comes to achieving your skincare goals. Clinical studies emphasize the significance of a consistent skincare routine. Regular application of products containing beneficial ingredients yields more sustainable and long-term benefits for the skin. We believe in gradual skin transformation through dedicated skincare practices. By incorporating a consistent skincare routine into your daily life, you can optimize the health and appearance of your skin, leading to a radiant and youthful complexion. Understanding that matter, we create collections of kits and duos curated to every skincare routine and skin concern. 

Diet Affects Skin: Fact. Research in dermatology underscores the impact of nutrition on skin health. A balanced diet rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and essential nutrients promotes a resilient and radiant complexion.

Different Skin Types: Fact. Dermatological research confirms the existence of distinct skin types and recommends personalized skincare approaches based on individual characteristics, addressing issues such as dryness, oiliness, or sensitivity.

Skincare Myths:

Pores Open and Close: Myth. Dermatologists affirm that pores lack muscles, debunking the common belief that they can open or close. The temporary effect of warm water is unrelated to the actual size of pores. However, products such as our Soothing Mist, with over 15 botanicals properties, helps minimize the appearance of pores, soothes redness, and restore skin's natural balance

Natural is Always Better: Myth. Research indicates that the efficacy of skincare ingredients depends on various factors, and both natural and synthetic ingredients can be beneficial. Individual skin sensitivities play a crucial role in determining suitability.

More Products, Better Results: Myth. Scientific evidence suggests that an excessive number of skincare products can disrupt the skin's natural balance and lead to irritation. A streamlined routine with well-chosen products is often more effective.

Tanning Clears Acne: Myth. Dermatological studies consistently warn against the misconception that sun exposure clears acne. While there may be temporary improvements, UV rays contribute to skin damage and exacerbate acne in the long term. Therefore, it is very essential to protect your skin with sunscreen during the day.

Acne is Only a Teen Problem: Myth. Research in dermatology acknowledges that acne is not exclusive to teenagers. Studies reveal the prevalence of adult acne, influenced by factors such as hormones, genetics, and lifestyle choices. Zitlox Salicylic Acne Gel helps to target acne-causing bacteria to reduce symptoms of acne.
