 #1 SkinCare Myths

Our skin is something that we seem to take care of our entire life. It’s a protective layer that we may not know much about but helps us in so many ways. The least we can do is help take care of it when aging and environmental toxins get the best of us. Sometimes we’ll find ourselves searching through the Internet and even paying the most ridiculous prices for a skincare regime that keeps our skin looking youthful. What we don’t know is that there are a lot of myths when it comes to our skin and how we take care of it.

The number one myth is that drinking water keeps your skin hydrated. There isn’t any evidence of this so we really don’t know that. This is because of the fact that your skin doesn’t directly absorb water. It hydrates our cells when the bloodstream absorbs it. What does make sense is when we are dehydrated. When this happens, it will clearly affect us in many different ways, even our skin. There just isn’t any indication that drinking more water will change the way your skin looks.

For a lot of us, coming up with the perfect skin regime has taken a long time. Even then, we may not have even gotten it right. We have it in our head that when we don’t wash our face, it can cause more acne. According to Franz this isn’t necessarily true. Hygiene doesn’t really play a part in the development of acne. This all has to do with oil production, bacteria, clogged pores, and even hormones. Think of it this way, washing your face won’t help the situation but it also isn’t the only reason you may have acne.

Some of us may understand the struggle of oily skin. Because of this, we usually try to stay away from moisturizer in fear that it will just make us look like a glistening jar of honey. This is something that you should rethink. Whatever cleansers you are using may strip all the natural oils from your skin. This would mean that you need to replace that with moisturizer. Oily skin can still be dehydrated! It can even be the cause of the excessive amount of oil. You would need to find a way to balance all that out, that makes sure your skin is moisturized and hydrated.

We all know how genetics plays a big part in how our body functions but when it comes to skin that’s not always the case. While it may play a small role, our skin is so complex that how it looks has to do with intrinsic as well as extrinsic factors. A lot of the time, your genetics cover a lot of the intrinsic factors but you actually have control over extrinsic ones so it’s important to keep an eye on those.

With that being said, once we start to see the effects of aging on our skin, we go into fight mode. At The IV Lounge we offer an anti-aging IV infusion to solve all of your problems.
