SKINCARE FIXES OR FADS

Everywhere you go you probably have seen products that promise quick and easy fixes for skin problems.
Infomercials claim that you can lose 20 pounds with their special waist trainer , or that using a certain cream will give you a clear, smooth blemish free face in one use.

It’s understandable that people prefer fast results over slow progress, but some skin care fads can be more harmful than helpful.

Instead of following quick fix fads, marketing hype or simply relying on cosmetics to cover up your skin care problems, it’s best to address the issues safely and effectively and if you need to, consult your trusted health-care provider(s)!

MICRONEEDLING

This procedure involves poking tiny holes in your skin ( 2 mm in depth), using a device that looks like a lint roller covered in short needles.
Each puncture stimulates the cells to rejuvenate the skin, firming up your face to give it a more youthful appearance.
This tool has safety concerns regarding the needles causing damage to vessels and nerves.
Frequent microneedling can lead to broken capillaries "and predispose skin to a plastic look if you over abuse it with repeated microneedle use.
Poorly cleaned needles can also lead to breakage of in the skin causing possible irritation, scarring and damage to skin.


COLLAGEN CREAMS

Collagen injections do work to decrease wrinkles. However, you can rub a collagen cream onto the skin all day long but it’s not going to do anything.
Collagen cream does not go deep enough into the skin to give that plumped up look.
It is excellent for scars but don’t rely on it for a wrinkle filler.


HEMORRHOID CREAM FOR PUFFY EYES

People swear by dabbing Preparation H around the eyes to shrink swelling.
While it DOES work, you should probably save this hack for special occasions. Most hemorrhoid creams contain hydrocortisone, which can thin the skin with extended use.


WATER

Just like the other organs of our body, skin is also made of several cells. Cells require water to function properly.
Water replenishes the skin tissue and increases its elasticity. This helps delay the appearance of signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.
This is a Skin Fix providing you also have a proper skincare routine.
Drinking more water won’t magically make your skin perfect, you still need to cleanse, exfoliate, mask and moisturize the skin regularly.

There's a lot more trends but for now I wanted to share some of the common ones.


Trends and fads come and go, but you will have your skin for a  lifetime so take good care of it.
