Debunking 10 Beauty Myths for Women Over 50

Debunking 10 Beauty Myths for Women Over 50


There are some common myths in the beauty world that we are here to debunk. After reading this, you won't have to worry if what you have heard is true or not, and you will be able to take practical steps towards maintaining a healthy skin barrier.


Myth #1: The Damage Is Done by 18

It is commonly believed that all the damage is done before you are 18. Sadly the truth of the matter is that as we age our skin is actually even more vulnerable. High levels of sun exposure as children can leave skin susceptible to further UV damage.

The products one needs to combat rapid skin ageing (besides sunscreen) are having products that sustain skin health and offer protection from our everyday environmental aggressors.


Myth #2: Acne Goes Away with Age

The hormone androgen spurs, which spurs sebum production in oil glands and causes dead skin cells to become sticky that lead to clogged pores and blemishes. Additionally, with age, oestrogen levels drop in women during menopause and breakouts crop up again as androgen and oestrogen fall out of balance. Acne is from hormone imbalance (just like in puberty), and it can crop up again during menopause.


Myth #3: A Squeaky-Clean Face Means Healthy Skin

Squeaky-clean is not necessarily a good thing when it comes to skin care; there is a fine balance between sufficient cleansing and over-cleansing. Washing skin properly to ensure you remove all of the day’s environmental aggressors, make-up, and debris is essential to keep the skin’s lipid barrier strong and healthy, and skin looking smooth and radiant.

Stripping away healthy essential oils can leave skin feeling tight, irritated, and dehydrated, if you are using ingredients that are too harsh for most skin types.


Myth #4: Oily Skin Resists Wrinkles

The excess sebum isn’t a protective barrier against wrinkles, even though it may slow down dehydration. Those with higher testosterone levels often have oilier and thicker skin, which as a combination can combat appearance of fine lines for longer, but oil production levels have no effect on collagen production and can’t block UV damage.


Myth #5: Make-up Makes You Age Faster

Ageing of sking depends on various factors, including the ingredients of the products that you use, if you clean these ingredients off nightly. If you follow a healthy skin care regimen, make-up won’t damage your skin, or make you age faster. According to dermatologist Michele Green M.D., certain substances in make-up, such as parabens, fragrances, and talc, might impact your skin's natural processes. Take into consideration that if you use expired make-up, or scrub excessively, it can cause skin irritation, breakouts, and wrinkles.


Focus on proper make-up removal and deep hydration to prevent make-up from causing problems for your skin. We recommend using The Deep Clean that is a cream cleanser and make-up remover in one. Natural oils work to remove dirt and make-up while retaining your skin's natural moisture balance, revealing smoother, brighter skin. After hydrating with The Multitasker that contains all the vitamins and antioxidants you need, it works around the clock to hydrate and replenish your skin. The Multitasker absorbs quickly without leaving a sticky residue for smoother, nourished looking skin.


Myth #6: People With Oily Skin Don’t Need to Moisturise

If one does not moisturise, the skin will dry out and respond with more oil production to compensate. Moisturisers do more than just deliver much-needed nutrients; they also protect the skin from external and environmental factors and prevent premature fine lines and wrinkles.

The Radiance Boosting Serum combines Vitamins A, C and E to boost and tone the skin's structure through all 3 layers. Perfect for use under moisturiser, Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent wrinkles through increasing collagen production. This blended with Vitamin C provides potent antioxidant protection, shielding skin from damaging free radicals. Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C helps to increase healthy collagen production reducing inflammation and irritation. Vitamin E is rich in antioxidants, perfect to heal skin.

Myth #7: Only exfoliate when you have dry skin

Exfoliation is beneficial for all skin types, as it removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, improves skin tone, and enhances product absorption. The only difference is that dry or sensitive skin should use gentler exfoliants and exfoliate less frequently. Oily or resilient skin can exfoliate more often.


Myth #8: Coconut is a great moisturiser

Coconut oil has high comedogenicity, which can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Coconut oil can irritate sensitive skin, does not offer sun protection, and may not provide enough hydration for dry skin.


Myth #9: Clean beauty products are less effective than regular ones

Clean beauty could but does not have to be organic; the only common denominator is that is it free of toxins, hormone disruptors, carcinogens, and ingredients that could cause allergies and irritations- such as parabens, sulphates, phthalates, formaldehyde, or polyethyelene.


Myth #10: Eye creams don’t work

Eye creams are sensitive for the eye area and target issues you don’t deal with on other areas of your face, such as puffiness and dark under-eye circles.

Violet Jordan has our very own Pro-Age Eye Cream that has been formulated to reduce the appearance of wrinkles & dark circles with an intense vitamin rich formula. The cream is blended with hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and is enriched with green tea extract, making the skin appear fuller and tighter.
