Myth № 9: Facial creams should not be applied in cold weather.
It is believed that using creams in freezing weather is a terrible idea because the water in the product will freeze and cause some kind of damage.
This is why we put our regular beauty products aside and buy special “winter” creams and oils. But this is the money that we simply waste for nothing.
Of course, you should not go outside with a wet face when the temperature is below 0ºF. It can lead to skin dehydration. But you can use moisturizing creams even though they are 50-80% water. The water in the cream won’t freeze because your skin heats it. Your skin temperature is never lower than 32ºC. So, even the coldest days will still allow you to walk outside with some cream on your face for at least an hour. But it’s better to use some thick cream and just before you go outside, apply some powder to your face which will protect your skin from the cold temperature.
Myth № 10: Thermal water hydrates the skin.
According to many advertisements, thermal water is an important part of moisturizing the skin. But, as it turns out that even this simple spray has to be used correctly.
If you simply apply some thermal water on your face, you will actually dehydrate the skin which is the opposite of what you want. It is all about the laws of physics: water evaporates along with all the moisture from your skin. Using thermal water on the beach is a terrible idea because it will allow the UV-light to affect your skin even more.
