Does Drinking A Lot Of Water Make Your Face Glow?

A patch test is recommended if you have hyper-sensitive skin or are prone to allergies.

Myth #1

But one of the most common skincare myths is that water hydrates the skin and makes it glowy and plump.


Myth #2

Do you think skincare products are ‘chemical-laden’ or your DIY homemade face masks are all-natural and good for your skin? Let us tell you that water is a chemical, and snake venom is 100% natural. So, by extension, not all ‘chemicals’ are harmful, and not all ‘natural’ ingredients are good for you.


Myth #3

Skincare products with fragrances are often thrown under the bus and labelled irritants. However, the fact is that not all scents are harmful. Instead, they are soothing adjutants for many products, especially sleeping masks, moisturizers and body washes.


Avoid Skincare With Fragrance

Essential oils like lavender, rosemary or peppermint are packed with skin benefits and are often added as natural aromatics in products. A patch test is recommended if you have hyper-sensitive skin or are prone to allergies. Also Read - World Tuberculosis Day 2023: These 8 Could Be TB Signs


Myth #8

A few exfoliating acids cause a slight sensation or tingling and are always mentioned in the product. But if there is no mention of the same on your product and your skin feels tight, red or ‘burning’ upon application, that is a red flag.


Tingles Or Burns? Means It's Working

Your skin might be sensitive or unable to tolerate a specific ingredient in your product. Wash off the product immediately and apply aloe gel or a thick moisturizer to soothe your skin. Also Read - Antibiotic Nitroxoline May Help Fight Mpox Or Monkeypox
