Skin Care Myths

Comments Off on Skin Care Myths

At Bonne Foi we have posted about the importance of using our Bonne Foi Skin care products to protect your skin and to help diminish signs of aging, such as brown spots and wrinkles. We have also talked about the need to put sunscreen on every day, regardless of whether the sun is shining or not. We have also talked about the great benefits of eating healthy, fresh colorful foods, and how bad it is for your skin to use soap on your face. It is so rewarding when we see our information backed up by other sources. Here is an excerpt of a recent post on WebMD:

“Myth: You don’t need sunscreen on a cloudy day.

Even on a cloudy day, UV radiation from the sun reaches the earth’s surface. So make sure you use sunscreen every day and reapply it every two hours as well as after swimming or sweating. Also, don’t fall prey to the myth that you’re protected just because you’re wearing makeup with an SPF. According to Leslie Bauman, MD, director of the University of Miami Cosmetic Group and author of The Skin Type Solution, you would have to put on 14 or 15 times the amount of makeup that a normal person would wear to reach the SPF on the label of powdered makeup. The same thing goes for foundation and liquid makeup. Make sure you use sunscreen in addition to your makeup.

Myth: Scrubbing your face with soap will keep your skin healthy and acne free.

“When you scrub your face, you’re taking off some of the protective oils and barriers, which tends to lead to rashes and even burns,” says Sandy Johnson, MD, a board-certified dermatologist with Johnson Dermatology Group in Fort Smith, Ark. Instead, she says, use a gentle cleanser followed by a moisturizer or sunscreen.” At Bonne Foi we hope that 2014 will be a great year for you. We also hope that our skin care line becomes a part of your new skin care regimen this year, and that you will follow our blog as we try to bring you the best advice about skin care!!
