Myths & Facts About Skin Care

The road to healthy skin is paved with many myths. Sometimes it can be hard to decipher what is true and what is not. In some cases, it can even be harmful for one’s skin. So, we have set out to clear up a few myths about skin care and to show you how our ChitoCare Beauty skin care line can help you achieve healthier, more radiant skin.  

FACT: The order in which you apply products is important

To make the most out of skin care products, it is necessary to use them in the correct order or you might not see the desired results you hope for. Always start by cleansing your face, to wash away impurities, dirt and pollution. Follow that up with a serum, preferably containing hyaluronic acid, so it can prepare the skin for moisture. Finally, apply moisturizer last, so it can seal in the previous products, boosting hydration. Make sure to leave a few seconds between each step, so your skin can effectively absorb all the ingredients. ChitoCare Beauty 30-Day Anti-Aging Treatment is perfect for all skin types, contributing to hydration, powerful skin renewal and a dewy appearance. 

MYTH: People with oily skin do not need to moisturize 

This is, understandably, a logical assumption to make. However, lack of moisture can lead to several unpleasant side-effects, even for people with an oily skin complexion. Moisturizers do more than just deliver much-needed nutrients, they also protect the skin from external and environmental factors and prevent premature fine lines and wrinkles. ChitoCare Beauty Face Cream is suitable for all skin types and can be used both day and night to increase elasticity, prevent irritation and offer a silky-smooth feel. 

FACT: Vitamin C is crucial 

When using skin care products, it can be extremely beneficial to choose one that contains Vitamin C. This is because it accelerates the production of collagen and elastin, that keep skin plump and firm. Vitamin C can help prevent skin aging, restoring a youthful, glowing complexion. ChitoCare Beauty has developed LipoSan Fibers + Vitamin C to promote skin health, while also contributing to reduced cholesterol levels and increased energy.  

MYTH: Sleeping with makeup on is no big deal 

This is a skin care sin many women are guilty of, especially among younger age groups. However, sleeping with one’ s makeup on can have damaging long-term effects, such as clogged pores and wrinkle formation around the eyes. Proper cleansing before bedtime will clear your skin of impurities, pollution, dirt, oil and cosmetics. To prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming, use ChitoCare Beauty Anti-Aging Repair Serum before moisturizing. 

FACT: Your skin goes into repair mode when we sleep

Sleep is not only important for your overall well-being and health, but also for your skin. Significant amounts of the Human Growth Hormone (HGH) are released at night, maintaining, building and repairing healthy tissue in your body. Therefore, a bedtime skin care routine can be so beneficial, as your body makes the most of nutrients and ingredients at night when skin cells regenerate, and the body recovers from the day’s stressors. To give your skin a healthy boost, apply ChitoCare Beauty Face Cream before bedtime and wake up with a hydrated and moisturized glow. 

MYTH: You need to exfoliate every day

Up to three times a week can work wonders for clearing away dead skin cells, but over-exfoliation will dry up your skin, leaving it rough and raw. Even sensitive skin needs exfoliating, as it clears clogged pores and helps the skin absorb moisture. It is important, however, to use an exfoliator that is not abrasive and to be gentle as you scrub, so you do not irritate your skin. ChitoCare Beauty Body Scrub is a soft exfoliator containing walnut shell microgranules and bamboo stem, that leaves a silky-smooth feeling, without drying out your skin. 

FACT: Hot water can dehydrate your skin 

Washing or showering with steaming hot water might sound like a good idea when cleaning your skin, but it will remove necessary moisturizers and oils. Hot water causes skin to lose moisture, leading to itchiness and irritation. Your face is particularly sensitive to losing moisture and this is especially true for mature skin. Adequate moisture is crucial to healthy looking skin and ChitoCare Beauty Serum Mask is a powerful moisture bomb for both your face and body. 

MYTH: Adults never get acne 

If only this were true. In fact, many people experience signs of adult acne, including women going through menopause. Acne is the result of an excess collection of sebum in the sebaceous glands of the skin, leading to clogged pores. ChitoCare Medical Healing Spray contains chitosan, that forms a protective film over the skin to promote healing. It prevents further inflammation and infection while locking in moisture. 

FACT: You must wear sunscreen every day, even in winter

The ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun might not be as strong in the winter as they are in summer, but they are always present, even on cloudy days. UV rays can cause fine lines, winkles, skin pigmentation, even skin cancer. Therefore, it is important to always wear sunscreen with SPF (Sun Protection Factor), to shield your skin from the invisible yet harmful effects of the sun. ChitoCare Beauty Face Cream contains SPF 15, moisturizing your skin while giving you that extra bit of protection. 

MYTH: Wounds must breathe so they can heal 

Leaving cuts and wounds uncovered will cause them to dry out, creating a crust. This is bad for the healing process and can worsen the appearance of the final scar. ChitoCare Medical Wound Healing Gel contains chitosan, that forms a film over the skin, locking in moisture and allowing skin cells to renew faster. Thanks to its healing properties, it protects against infection and inflammation and minimizes scarring.
