We love Refinery 29, and we especially love when they tackle the big issues…like skincare! They’ve gone ahead and debunked some of the most common skincare myths, and there are a few on their list that we’re really subscribing to:

1)      Richer eye creams are better eye creams – Nope! Richer formulas often contain heavy oils (like mineral oil) that sit on the surface of your skin, actually causing puffiness that can stretch the skin and accelerate fine lines. The good news? Our Revitalizing Eye Cream (and all Restorsea products) is free of parabens, PEGs, phthalates, silicone or mineral oil!

2)      Skin should feel tight after washing – If your skin feels tight after cleansing, it’s been stripped of essential oils. Choose a sulfate- and detergent-free cleanser (like our Reviving Cleanser) that will remove impurities without depleting your skin of the oils it needs.

3)      You don’t need anti-aging skincare until you see signs of aging – Take cues from our favorite it-girl (and 27 year-old) Emmy Rossum, and start now!

Don’t be fooled, ladies! Ignore the clutter and get on your way to your best skin.
