Smashingabs.com wants to help you figure out what myths you’d better stop believing in order to stay beautiful.

Myth #1: Everyday makeup is harmful to the skin.

In fact, it’s not makeup itself, but instead, the act of neglecting to remove it properly before going to bed that harms the skin. The skin should have an opportunity to breathe and oxygenate. In the daytime, modern cosmetics contain UV filters, moisturizing and protective properties that are useful since they can protect the skin from the aggressive impact of the environment.

Myth #2: If there’s a “hypoallergenic” sign on a cosmetic bottle, the product will suit any skin type.

“Hypoallergenic” cosmetic products lack only the most wide-spread allergenic ingredients such as alcohol, for example. However, the only ingredient that any skin has no reaction to is distilled water. That’s why it’s important to remember to learn carefully the content of even the most harmless products before buying them. Cosmetics based on natural ingredients aren’t for everyone.

Myth #3: Moisturizing creams don’t prevent wrinkles.

In fact, today many moisturizing creams fight the appearance of wrinkles. The main thing to keep in mind is that there should be UV filters and vitamins containing antioxidants in the composition of the cream that you use.
