Don’t Let These Skincare Myths Fool You

Don’t Let These Skincare Myths Fool You

You read a lot about skincare and aren't sure what to believe, right? Let’s cut straight to the chase: falling for these skincare myths will prevent you from achieving healthy, balanced skin.

MYTH #1: “Exfoliation will damage your skin barrier.”

Not all exfoliation is created equal. For example, the jojoba esters (AKA the luxurious, biodegradable beads in our face wash) melt as you cleanse, infusing skin with a refreshing burst of hydration. Similarly, the signature blend of fruit enzymes (AHAs) in our other products, known as The Reflekt Complex, help to increase cell turnover to soften, smooth, and improve skin texture with every use. These are two of our personal favorite exfoliants because they gently (and thoroughly) work their magic without ever disrupting your skin’s barrier — or the environment.

MYTH #2: “If it doesn’t hurt, it’s not working.”

It’s a common misconception that your products are only “working” if your skin is tingling, burning, itching, or the like. In reality, the opposite is true! If you’re experiencing any discomfort with your regimen, it’s probably doing more harm than good. Swap it out for a simple yet effective routine that’s suitable for your particular skin type. To streamline the search for you, our transformative four-step regimen is ideal for everyone, even those with sensitive skin.

MYTH #3: “Oily skin doesn’t need extra moisture.”

All skin types need moisture — yes, even oily complexions. This is because oily skin can get dehydrated too and, when this happens, your body will produce even more oil to compensate for the dryness. In doing so, your skin will become even oilier and you’ll move further away from the healthy, pH balanced, and glowing complexion you’re striving to achieve. Reflekt 3 Power Peptide Sculpting Face Cream is oily-skin approved thanks to its lightweight consistency while also being hydrating enough for normal to dry skin types, too. It’s the best of all worlds.

MYTH #4: “Face cream is sufficient for your eye and lip area.”

The thin, delicate skin around your eyes and lips is much more fragile, making these areas especially prone to damage, including wrinkles, lines, and dryness. Treating both areas with a targeted treatment (not just your moisturizer) is essential for effectively preventing and correcting these signs of aging. It’s exactly the reason why we created our inventive eye and lip cream that works double-duty to sufficiently treat both areas in one luxurious step.
