Skin Care Myths and Misconceptions

Like many health and fitness related fields, skin care sits somewhere between hard science, precarious word-of-mouth knowledge and wild hype. It is important to know what has been proven to work by science. But it is just as important to know what does not work, or works differently than you think, or can even be harmful. This section exposes some of the common skin care myths and misconceptions. This knowledge can help you save time, money and effort, which should rather be channeled into trying proven treatments in a correct way.
