Beliefs for inside and out
Belief: Chocolate gives you spots
Wrong. An unhealthy diet can have a negative effect on the appearance of your skin. However, blocked pores are primarily responsible for spots, caused by increased production of sebum and corneous cells. The reasons for this are your hormonal state, your skin type and your skin care.
Belief: Spots on your nails are caused by a lack of calcium
Not true. The causes of these spots are likely to be small lacerations in the growth areas of the nails.
Myth: Reading in low light is harmful
Not true. Reading by torchlight under the covers will not affect your eyesight. Although the eye muscles do have to work harder due to the lack of light, your vision is not impaired because of it.
Myth: Tanning protects against sunburn
Partially true. If you go on holiday with a light pre-tan, you will need a lower UV protection factor. But don’t think you can get away with a self-tanning product, because this does not protect you from sunburn. And you should in any case always apply sufficient sunscreen.
Myth: You cannot tan in the car
Partially true.35% of UVB rays and most of the UVA radiation is transmitted through glass, so it is possible to tan and damage the skin. You should use a cream with adequate sun protection factor.
