Clearing Up Skin…Misconceptions

There’s a few questions I hear often from Envee Clients.   I thought it might serve everyone well if I posted a couple of the larger misconceptions about skincare.

  • Blackheads are a caused by improperly cleansed skin. – Blackheads or comedones are caused by clogged pores, and excessive scrubbing can irritate and further inflame skin. Blackheads often contain dirt, oil, and dry and dead skin cells that need to be removed. Products that help dissolve sebum are the most effective.
  • Skin repair only happens at night.  – A good night’s sleep is certainly helpful to skin health; however, skin repair is ongoing. Inadequate sleep can cause stress, skin puffiness and can slow the natural development of collagen.
  • Strong scrubs, soaps and abrasives are good for your skin. – Be careful how you wash your face. Too much scrubbing or too many abrasive products can remove protective oils, create tiny micro tears and contribute to aging, irritated skin. Less is more, and a gentle cleanser and light moisturizer work well for most people.
