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.

As much as the holiday season is all about fun and joy accompanied by overindulgence, it also means an adverse impact on the skin via the combination of alcohol, sugar and little sleep. Therefore no matter what the skin type is, it needs to be pampered and taken care of and a great fix in our busy lives is the facemask.

Neha Rawla, Brand Communication for Forest Essentials elaborates that just as the origins of most beauty rituals can be traced back to the Indian subcontinent, so can be the origin of the application of face masks, also known as Lepana in Sanskrit.

“Different Lepas or masks for maintaining ageless skin, increasing hydration levels, smoothing skin’s imperfections as well as toning and firming skin are mentioned under the ancient art of Lepana in Ayurveda,” said Rawla.

Sangeeta Velaskar, Vice President and Head, Medical Services & R & D from Kaya Limited added that “The facial sheet masks particularly are great for everyday use for instant glow and freshness. It is not a substitute for your everyday skin care regime, but it surely adds to the effect”.

There are various masks that can be used according to the skin type: –

* Cream masks: They are suitable for normal to dry skin types and provide them the required moisture, hydration and softness. This in turn makes the skin healthier, plumper, smoother, tighter and firm.

* Clay masks: Best suited for oily or acne prone skin, these masks naturally detoxify the skin as they hydrate without oil. They are the best to treat clogged pores and congestion as they remove impurities while mattifying the texture and minimizing the pores. These masks balance the oil levels and regulate the oil secretion on the skins surface, along with smoothening and softening the skin by removing the dust build up on it.

* Gel masks: Ideal for sensitive and dehydrated skin types, these masks are gentle and lightweight. Along with calming and hydrating they also play a role in firming and tightening the skin.

* Sheet masks: The most popular amongst the lot and definitely a rage these days. These masks are easy to use and are extremely convenient to handle. These suit almost every skin type and are available in many variants; thus the user needs to select accordingly. Made popular by the K Beauty trend, these masks are essentially used to hydrate the skin and reduce puffiness.

* Exfoliating masks: Exfoliation is an important part of the skin care routine and is done once in a while to get rid of the dead skin cells, blackheads etc. These masks along with exfoliation also contain natural skin brightening agents. These are also suitable for all skin types, however those with sensitive skin should opt for the less abrasive ones.

Peel off masks: These provide an instant glow as they physically remove any dirt/dust or blackheads settled on the top layer of the skin. These masks are suitable for all skin types. (IANS)
