There are several assumptions when it comes to how to properly care for your skin, so let's set the record straight debunk 3 common skincare myths:
1. Your skin adapts to the products you use regularly so they eventually stop working.
Consistency is key when it comes to a daily skincare regimen. It often takes weeks of consistent use for noticeable results, as skin needs time to react to the ingredients in the skincare product used daily. Accelerate long term results in just 3 days each month with MD Complete's 3-Day Booster Pack for a solution that’s easy to incorporate into any skincare regimen.
2. Wearing sunscreen will aggravate your acne.
Women commonly skip sunscreen because they think it clogs their pores and triggers breakouts. Daily sun protection is vital to maintaining healthy skin. Look for a sheer, non-comedogenic formula that's specifically for facial skin.
3. You must cleanse your face in the AM & PM.
Many have been trained that the more they cleanse their face, the better. This is actually false. Over cleansing can actually strip skin. That's why we recommend cleansing only once a day in the evening to remove any dirt and debris that built up throughout the day. In the AM, simply rinse your skin with water & a washcloth to gently exfoliate & refresh. Consider using a gentle cleanser too, like MD Complete’s Anti-Aging Restoring Cleanser & Makeup Remover that is free of surfactants and sulfates.
