We’ve all heard different things about aging. Use a lot of moisturizer. Start using eye cream in your teens. What’s the truth and what are myths? According to InStyle magazine, there are six myths about aging every girl should know. 

1. Your face is peeling so you can’t use retinoids

2. SPF only matters on your face

3. If your makeup has SPF, you’re covered

4. The older you get, the more foundation you need

5. Looking old is all about wrinkles

6. The more you exfoliate, the better

The truth is that you should use retinoids. If your face is peeling, that is just part of the process. You need to use SPF on your face, neck and chest. Makeup doesn’t have enough SPF to protect you from the sun’s harmful rays. You should use at least a teaspoon of SPF on your face every day. When you get older, you should start wearing less foundation because it settles in creases. Using a lightweight tinted moisturizer works much better. Wrinkles come with age, but you can protect your skin from sun spots and sun damage by applying SPF from a young age. You should exfoliate only once a week. The more you exfoliate, the more your skin can get irritated.
