There are many beauty tips and ideas out there that claim to help you look as young as you feel. Even though some beauty products can help repair your skin now, others simply cannot. This is why Marie Claire magazine recently broke down the top tips to swear by and the ones you should leave behind.
Myth: The thicker your face and hand cream, the more moisturizing it is
Some women may have been tricked into this notion that if you find a really thick anti aging skin cream it will work better than one that has a thinner consistency. However, a dermatologist told the magazine this isn't always the case.
"Concentrated doesn't necessarily equal optimum hydration," the expert told the publication. "An overdose of lipids can actually trap dead cells and leave skin looking duller.
The professional suggests ladies instead opt to look for certain moisturizing serums to apply to the skin first, followed by creams. The combination will ensure moisture stays present on the skin.
Investing in Elemis Skincare products like Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream may be a perfect solution. This ultimate anti-aging cream works to increase moisture levels and hydration on the skin, while offering a lifting effect through collagen support.
Myth: If you have oily skin you don't need to use moisturizer
If you suffer from an oily complexion, you might assume that the worst thing to do in any season is to pack a layer of moisturizer on top. Even though you might want to find a lighter, less intense face lotion in the warmer months, you should still use a more nourishing product in the winter, the news outlet reports.
All skin types change during the dry and cold days of winter and foregoing protection can actually make you more susceptible to damages caused by pollution in the air and the elements. The moisturizer acts as a protective layer on your skin.
In order to find a happy-medium it might be best to search out products that offer lotions in a gel-cream or lotion formula. A product like Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner might work on oily skin. The gentle toner works to rejuvenate dehydrated skin, while working to re-balance pH levels and preserve your natural oils using only the best ingredients.
