Facial oils lead to breakouts and makes the face look greasy: These are some of the common myths associated with the skin care product.

Huffingtonpost.com dispels some myths attached to facial oils:


1. Myth: Oils cause breakouts

People think that facial oils or any product with oil in it will make them break out.

Truth: Healthy fats and oils prevent skin damage and breakouts.

The skin needs its natural oils for protection. If we strip the oil away, the skin will produce more oil to compensate. Then the imbalances will cause breakouts. A healthy oil environment should be encouraged to repair damage.

2. Myth: Oil is oily

Many fear that oil application will make face shiny. The assumption is that only people with dry skin can use oil. Those with combination or oily skin will look greasy.

Truth: Facial oil is not oily

A good facial oil should be absorbed by skin and should give dewy look. It should not leave the surface looking oily. Look out for base oils like such as jojoba, apricot or almond.

3. Myth: Oils are not efficient anti-ageing products

When compared to other skin products with anti-oxidant extracts and other anti-ageing ingredients, oils are less beneficial in terms of protecting skin from ageing.

Truth: Facial oils are chemical free anti-oxidant powerhouses

Smart living is also about smart breathing.

By Himanshu Agarwal

While smart homes are typically about connected and automated devices and appliances, making it a super convenient and comfortable living experience for residents, there is one connection that we often seem to miss when we speak of smart homes -- the inextricable connection with the indoor home environment.

After all, smart living is also about smart breathing. Unless we breathe clean and pure air even within our homes, smart living remains an incomplete aspiration. Therefore, as we pivot big time to a modern lifestyle with nearly 24/7 gadgets, utilities, and network dependency within our homes, a sense of balance with respect to the indoor ambiance must also be attained. And this balance necessarily means breathing pristine, unadulterated pure air even at homes.

Don't forget we breathe 24/7 even when living in smart homes


Of course, in this time and age when we are actively using some smart device or the other within the premises of our smart homes most of the time, the point that we are also breathing 24/7 need not be as labored. However, the question is: whether the quality of the air that we are breathing indoors is commensurate with the aspiration for this so-called quality of life and experience of living in high-class homes. In other words, even as we think we are living the 'high life' using all the fancy gadgets and increasing convenience in life, unless we breathe the right air, the desire and dream of quality living will not find true meaning.
