Debunking myths: Anti-ageing facts that are actually false

written by Anjali Agarwal on Feb 15, 2019

The one thing women are really afraid of (other than crawly bugs) is ageing. As soon you step into your mid-20s, you start getting nightmares of spotting a wrinkle here and a fine line there. Plus, all those scary things you hear about ageing from different sources doesn’t help. We would like to tell you that everything you hear about ageing might not be true and you may be getting anxious over nothing. Take a look at these ageing myths and stop believing in them now…

Myth: Smiling and frowning form wrinkles

Truth: Hydrated skin means younger-looking skin. While your dry skin may make your smile lines visible, it won’t cause permanent wrinkles on your face. Keep your skin hydrated with Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore Body Lotion and smile more, ‘cause it’s good!

Myth: You can rely on homemade packs for anti-ageing

Truth: Believe us, the fountain of youth isn’t in your pantry. You can seek nature’s goodness for healthy skin, but homemade packs do not give the same effects as an expert anti-ageing skincare line. Get your hands on Pond’s Age Miracle Range for sure results.

Myth: You inherit your wrinkles from your mom

Truth: Although ageing does depend on your genetic pool, there is much more to skin ageing than just your DNA. The life your mother led and the one you are leading are vastly different. Stressful lifestyle and pollution adds a few years to your face as well.  

Myth: Sunscreen has nothing to do with anti-ageing

Truth:  Ladies, sun damage may not age your soul but it does age your skin. It reduces skin elasticity and is the primary cause of visible lines. Always wear Lakmé  Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Gel Sunscreen to protect skin from UV rays and faster ageing.

Myth: Anti-ageing products work only at night

Truth: Dermatologists would beg to differ. Day creams have SPF and antioxidants which protect skin while night creams have peptides and retinol which work on recovery. Both get the job done and are beneficial. Stock up on Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Day Cream SPF 18 PA++ and Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Night Cream for youthful skin.
