The more I learn about skincare, the more I realize that everything I thought I knew about skincare was wrong. Like, really wrong. I’m at a stage in my life where, as much as I love a good foundation, I’m really starting to get invested in my skin. Sun damage, premature aging, clogged pores…I’m kind of over focusing so much on how to cover up imperfections. What I’m dedicated to now is making sure my skin is healthy as possible for as long as possible. And as someone with acne prone skin. Yeah, that’s a big deal to me. I don’t want to have acne scars on my face for the rest of my life, y’all. Over it.
But as I said earlier, a deep dive into the ins and outs of skincare left me realizing that I bought into a lot of, well, BS about skincare by being gullible AF and believing anything someone with even a hint of conviction in their voice told me.Unfortunately, you probably believe a lot of things that you’ve never really questioned about skincare too. Check out these nine skin myths you need to stop believing already.
