Myths About Acne Prone Skin

Myths About Acne Prone Skin

There are four major myths about skin care you must unlearn because they only increase breakouts and make your oily skin worse.

Myth #1: You can dry up blemishes. Water is the only thing you can “dry up,” and a blemish has nothing to do with skin being wet. Drying up the water and other moisture-binding contents in skin hurts its ability to heal and fight inflammation, and actually encourages bacterial growth. Absorbing oil that’s on the skin’s surface or in the pore is radically different from “drying up” skin with harsh ingredients.

Myth #2: Blemishes are caused by dirty skin. This mistaken belief often leads to over-cleaning of the face with soaps and strong detergent cleansers. That only increases the risk of irritation and dryness, and does nothing to prevent blemishes. It’s also the perfect recipe for creating skin that feels dry and tight underneath, but is oily on top.

Myth #3: You can spot-treat blemishes. Although you can reduce the redness and swelling of a blemish with a salicylic acid (BHA)–based product or with a benzoyl peroxide–based product (both explained below), that doesn’t treat the cause of the acne. Dealing with only the blemishes you see means you are ignoring the blemishes that are in the process of forming. As you may have guessed, this leads to a never-ending cycle of chasing blemishes around your face. Spot-treating tends to work best for those whose breakouts are infrequent and localized rather than ongoing and all over the face.

Myth #4: If it tingles it must be working. Ingredients that make your skin tingle, like alcohol, menthol, peppermint, eucalyptus, and lemon, show up in countless acne products, yet there is no research showing they have any benefit for acne or oily skin. These ingredients are irritating to skin, and only make matters worse! Irritating the skin triggers stress-sensing nerve endings at the base of the pore, which in turn stimulate oil production.

The magic of make up!

Male to Female transformation.

No ugly girls, only lazy girls

No ugly girls, only lazy girls

Classy.

Classy.

Believe it or not, Audrey Hepburns makeup artist used to divide her eyelashes with a needle to get that doe-eyed look. I strongly advise you DON’T do this-hello A&E. Use a lash comb if your desperate. 
During the war women used to use gravy granules to get a tan, definitely cheaper than St Tropez, but who want’s to smell like beef stock? Sorry Grandma, that’s one tip I won’t be using.
Having said that, not all beauty tips from the past are as experimental. Not that it wasn’t worth it, it’s given us lash combs and fake tan not gravy to be thankful for. 
Here’s a few that I even use sometimes!
Pinching your cheeks lightly if you have no blusher to hand is a great alternative, and brings out a natural flush of colour.
To get dewy skin, women of the 1940’s used to use a foundation a shade darker than their own colour, topped off with a powder a shade lighter. I advise investing in a good primer and a foundation perfectly matched, with a highlighter to finish.
Vaseline used just beneath the arch of your brow creates a silver screen sheen
We all yearn for shiny locks, and one way 1940’s women cleansed their hair was by mixing a tablespoon of baking powder with a small cup of water. It was cheap and accessible for almost everyone. To bring a modern twist to this trick, try rinsing your hair in beer. Sounds gross but gives hair a great shine!
Bold brows were a big thing in the 40’s. Nowadays, we have every eye product imaginable to make our beauty regimes easy, but the most daring of women used charcoal. They would sometimes shave off their brows completely to draw them on with charcoal. Use a brow pencil if you can.
Mascara was not widely used at this time, but not unheard of. Women would use petroleum jelly and charcoal dust to coat onto their lashes using a fine brush. Not advisable!
Rubbing a little red or pink lipstick onto a cloth and dabbing it onto cheeks is effective also if there’s no blush to hand.
Copying nail colour to your outfit was a common trend. If you don’t fancy doing any fancy nail art, this is for you!
For ingrown nails, 40’s women had a trick that still works a treat now! Cut the nail across the top but not the sides, and bathe in warm water, inserting some cotton wool underneath where the nail is digging in. This loosens the nail and quickly corrects the problem.
To avoid eye bags, women used to put petroleum jelly underneath their eyes (vaseline) which works a treat!
A mixture of sugar, warm water and lemon juice worked as a great exfoliator-you’ll get the same effect with this recipe as you will with an expensive pot!
To get a glowing face, soak a cloth in ice cold water, then wring out and place on your face for 10 mins, then use an ice cube around the curves. Works a treat!
These 40’s women really have taught us a thing or two, and shaped the beauty world today. Do you have any tips from the past?
