Myth #4: The skin gets adjusted to creams and the creams lose their effect. That’s why they should be changed from time to time.
This myth is definitely wrong. Sometimes shifting to a new cream can be stressful for the skin. However, bear in mind that skincare rules are different for different seasons. If a cream for sustaining an optimal pH level is enough for summer, then the winter cream apart from protecting from direct sun rays, wind, and dust, should have properties that moisturize and nourish.
Myth #5: Cream should be applied to the face working upward.
Many people are sure that there are special rules for applying creams to the face and that circular motions from the bottom of the face to the top will enhance the effect of the cream. In fact, there are some rules on how to apply face creams but these hand motions don’t make much sense.
Myth #6: One should drink a lot of water to prevent wrinkles.
The myth saying that water consumed regularly and in necessary amounts slows the skin aging process down is very popular but, unfortunately, it doesn’t have any justification. As a rule, the cells of the upper layer of the epidermis are already dead, therefore, they don’t absorb moisture from the inside.
Myth #7: If you perform face gymnastics regularly, you can get rid of facial wrinkles.
The face is the only part of the body where muscles are attached directly to the skin. Constant stretching and exercises don’t contribute to smoothing existing wrinkles.
