Debunking Skincare Myths

The science behind skincare has come a long way in recent years, yet a number of ‘old fashioned’ myths are still floating around in terms of skin care.  We wanted to set the record straight for three ‘out of date’ skin care tips.

  1. The best way to find the right skincare product is to buy and try a number of different products. This might work if you have an unlimited budget, but for most of us this is not the case. To know what skin care products are right for you it is essential to know your skin type. At Skinthetics we recommend you take the Braumann Skin Type survey.
  2. The more expensive the product the better it is. A high price tag doesn’t always translate to real results. In many cases you’re paying for packaging, marketing and a famous brand name in addition to the ingredients. It is our job to tell you when to splurge on a product for example with the Priori MD DNA Repair Enzymes and where to save, we can give you specific product recommendations for your skin.
  3. There is one skin care product that works for everyone. We wish this was true it would make our jobs so much easier, but it is simply not the case. A cream or serum that works for your mother, sister or co-worker isn’t going to have the same result for you if you don’t have the same skin type and live in the same environment. Know your skin type and select products from there, we can help.
