ABC-vitaminerna som din hud älskar

There are so many skincare tips on the internet. Why? Because we all want to look good, both with and without makeup. We want to feel comfortable in our own skin, have long, natural lashes, and smooth, gorgeous lips.

Some of the things you read online aren't necessarily good for the skin, though. But among recipes for weird, homemade facemasks and advice from people who swear 'it works for me', there is some advice that is timeless, work for all skin types, and are easy to do. Let's learn a bit more about our skin and make you more skin savvy!


1. Skip Ice Cold and Boiling Hot Water

'You open the pores with warm water and close them with cold'. Have you ever heard that before? Chances are that you have, because it's one of the most common skincare myths there is, and it refuses to die!
The fact is that pores don't close or open, they are simply holes in your skin. This myth is probably still around because muscles work that way, cold tenses them and warmth relaxes them. But pores aren't muscles!
If you wash your face with really cold water and then really hot water, you will only irritate the skin and make it dry and unhappy. Lukewarm water is best for the skin!


2. Don't Wash Your Face Too Much

Sure, it does feel nice to wash your face for extra long so that it feels as clean as it possibly can, but that's not good for the skin. It ruins the skin's natural balance and can make it try to compensate for the oils you've stripped it from. The result might actually be that you get more pimples from it!
Think about it. If you do something that makes you need to wash your hands often, let's say, you're cleaning or baking. What happens? The hands get dry. The twentieth time you wash your hands in one day, the skin is going to look far from good. Well, it's the same with your face, even if the skin is slightly different and you don't use hand soap for it.
