Dr Eliz Aryal debunking myths associated to skin

It’s not good to instinctively buy cosmetic products. Skin is very sensitive organ and any harmful chemical can damage your skin, hence there are numerous things that should be considered before buying cosmetic products.

It’s good to care about skin. However, some of us knowingly or unknowingly follow the false instructions, which can result in severe health skin hazards. My City team talked to Dermatologist Dr Eliz Aryal to debunk some myths associated with skin.

Low water intake promotes pimple:

Water is very essential for keeping your skin hydrated. Hydration helps in keeping moisture in our skin; however hydration does not magically solve skin problems like pimple and acne.

Sun block is only for adults:

People think sun block is only for adults, where children should not use them. However, it’s just a myth, it’s very crucial for human to protect themselves from harmful UV rays. Even children can use sun protection lotions under doctor’s recommendation.

Acne does not break after 30:

There are several factors that cause pimple. One of them is hormonal composition that ignites acne in teenagers. Meanwhile, this hormonal composition might remain in some, though they are in their 30’s, which results in pimple breakout.

Only athletes suffer from fungal infection:
It is believed fungal infection is common only among athletes; however anyone can suffer from fungal infection. Fungal infection occurs when an invading fungus grows in any part of the body. Hence, fungal infections of the skin are very common such as athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm, and yeast infections.
