For as long as the world spins round, anti-aging is going to be a topic that is hot on a lot of tongues. Like it or not, everyone wants to look younger, even if their birth certificate suggests otherwise.
This is one of the reasons why so many cosmetic procedures focussed on anti-aging are available right now. According to Sono Bello, interest in these procedures has never been higher and if you were to judge by the amount of coverage that the topic gets in the mainstream news, this isn’t going to change anytime soon.
At the same time, whenever interest peaks in a subject, so does a lot of misinformation. This is the reason we have put together a guide today, and we will now look at some of the biggest anti-aging myths around to highlight the point in-detail.
Myth #1 – If you don’t smile, you won’t get wrinkles
Let’s start with one of the most ridiculous myths of all, but ultimately this is one of those that is believed by many. In fact, when we define the term “many”, we also refer to the likes of Victoria Beckham which perhaps suggests just why so many people buy into the idea.
Sure, minor lines might form every time you smile. However, experts believe that simply being happy is enough to offset this, and begin an anti-aging process in itself.
As such, quit the urge to stop smiling. You’ll sap all of the energy and excitement out of your life, and the benefits of this are nil.
Myth #2 – If you turn to makeup with SPF, everything will be OK
In short, everything won’t be OK.
A lot of the big makeup manufacturers are adding SPF to their products nowadays, but this doesn’t mean that it’s a direct replacement for sun screen.
On the contrary, makeup only tends to have a small amount of SPF within it. This means that you really aren’t protecting yourself in the slightest when you just arm your skin with one of these products. Of course, if the product happens to have an SPF of at least 30 you might be safe – but suffice to say, this is rare.
Instead, apply both. Make your makeup and sun screen part of your routine. As we all know, the sun is one of the biggest things that hurts us in the anti-aging process, so tackling it via this approach can work wonders in the long-term.
Myth #3 – If you follow ‘x’ routine, you’ll be fine
One of the biggest things that arises from the beauty industry is there being the “perfect” formula for beating the aging progress.
Unfortunately, in short, there isn’t.
What works very well for one person is most definitely not guaranteed to do the same for another. There is no magic formula and even if all of the blogs might tell you otherwise, it’s not true.
The best thing you can do is treat your face with sufficient SPF, and keep everything else as simple as can be.
