There are many misconceptions related to skincare like wearing sunscreen everyday is too heavy or exfoliating regularly will ensure a clear skin. So it’s time to move away from such myths and get ready for a flawless skin.

Here are some of the myths attached to skincare busted by experts at Proactiv brand, reports femalefirst.co.uk:

* Myth 1: Wearing sunscreen daily is too heavy for my oily complexion.

Truth: To prevent damage or to help avoid a blemish outbreak, protecting your skin with a sunscreen should be part of your daily skincare routine. If you suffer with oily skin, try a lightweight formula underneath your make-up, or find a foundation or tinted moisturiser with an SPF built in.

* Myth 2: To prevent blemishes you should completely strip away the oil from the skin.

Truth: While there is no doubt that oily skin should be controlled to keep the complexion clear and shine-free, completely stripping the skin of all its natural oils can play even more havoc with blemishes and spots.

* Myth 3: I should exfoliate regularly to ensure my skin stays clear.

Truth: Exfoliating excessively can strip the skin of essentials oils and spread bacteria. Instead of a daily scrub opt for a much gentler exfoliant to keep your skin in a good condition.

* Myth 4: You shouldn’t use moisturiser on oily skin.

Truth: Blemish-prone skin needs hydration too. In fact, drying out oily skin sends a signal to your body to produce even more oil; a nightmare for those who already suffer with problem skin.

* Myth 5: The only thing that will cure my eyes bags and dark circles is more sleep.

Truth: Allergies, swollen veins beneath the skin’s surface or a diet high in salt may also be the cause of bags under your eyes. (Bollywood Country)

Aakriti Kochar, beauty and make-up expert, Oriflame India, and Ragini Mehra, founder of Beauty Source, and Shiv Singh Mann, founder of Desert Splendour, have shared tips that can help save your skin.

* Wear a sun block (at least SPF 30) especially in coastal areas or while you’re in water as body tends to feel more burn in scorching heat when you are in water.

* You can use coconut oil on exposed skin after staying in the sun to soothe affected skin and avoid sunburns.

* Consuming Vitamin D rich foods like fermented cod liver oil help supplement Vitamin D balance in your body and build a stronger immune system against sunburns.

* Keep your skin hydrated not only externally but also internally by drinking a lot of water. Make sure you have at least seven to eight litres of water in summer. Hydrated skin is less prone to sun damage than dry skin.

* Wear the right clothes. Sometimes, you have to go outside even during the peak hours in summer, so the best way to prevent sunburn is covering yourself with appropriate clothing. Long-sleeve shirts and pants cover more of your skin than tank tops and shorts so they can help block the sun’s rays.

* Use jojoba oil as it acts like a shield and helps in curing sunburnt skin. The fastest and safest cure for tanned skin is to apply jojoba oil. It is also rich in Vitamins E and B complex, and helps in repairing dry and damaged skin while soothing the burning sensation. (Bollywood Country)
