Cosmetic procedures are too expensive for the average person — FALSE
Actually, wrinkle-fighting injections, such as fillers and Botox, are quite affordable, and even quick, painless and free of downtime.
Aging causes wrinkles, and there’s nothing you can do about it — FALSE
Our skin does become more over time, causing sagging, fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores. But many signs of aging can be prevented by wearing sunscreen every day and avoid tanning and burning.
Exfoliating scrubs stimulate your skin, making it smooth and glowing — FALSE
Your skin should be treated gently, as too much scrubbing can cause it to become red, irritated and oily. If you want to remove dead skin cells, professional treatments, such as microdermabrasion, can be a better option to help reduce signs of aging.
Rubbing your eyes causes wrinkles around them — FALSE
The wrinkles found around your eyes can’t happen from rubbing them when they’re itchy or tired. But you can improve and even smooth wrinkles around the eyes with injectables, such as Botox and Dysport
Makeup containing sunscreen is enough protection for your skin — FALSE
To truly protect your skin, you should apply a proven sunscreen all over your face before you apply makeup, even if it contains its own sunscreen.
You can’t undo sun damage once it has happened — FALSE
It’s never too late to undergo procedure that can help undo sun damage, including fine lines and brown spots, such as chemical peels, laser treatments, microdermabrasion and IPL.
