A Beauty Essential: Beauty Myths #2


Day two and I bring you two more myths for you to ponder over. When thought about realistically, they seem so silly, but not everyone has all the facts and experience. 

1. You shouldn't use oils/moisturiser on oily skin.

I've heard this so many times over the last few months, now that the hot weather has appeared, those with more oily skin seem to assume that adding more oils on to their skin is going to make it completely worse and any who are prone to getting spots will have a face full of them. However this is not the case. I had oily skin, I now have more combination to normal with a few dry patches and a few shiny areas through the day. But since I have used an oil cleanser (to remove makeup) and Rosehip oil to help my skins texture, tone and banish any scars and dark spots, my view is completely different. Oil attracts oil. So adding an oil on to your skin, will balance the natural oil production of your skin, meaning it won't have to compensate as much. This is possibly the best thing I learnt when I had oily skin. As for moisturising? Everyone. EVERYONE. Should moisturise. No excuses, no explanations. You just should.

2. Warm products up in your hands before applying to your face.

This is seen on a lot of packaging, but do you really need to do that. Nuh uh. A good product should be ready to go. An oil for example, massage into your face, not your hands, otherwise it just gets on your hands and then you're not getting enough on your face. Don't waste products by "warming them up" rubbing it into your hands, put it on your face and let it do it's magic the right way. If you NEED to warm it up, I wouldn't bother with it at all. You mainly see it with eye creams, cleansers and even concealers.

Everyone is entitiled to their own opinions and have different views and skin types etc. **
