Myth of the Day

Scandle Candle's Beauty Myth Countdown.

Myth #26:

Strong scrubs, soaps and abrasives are good for your skin.


Too much scrubbing or too many abrasive products can remove the protective oils needed to maintain healthy skin. Those products can also create tiny micro tears and contribute to aging, irritated skin. Less is always more when it comes to skin care. Be careful how you wash your face. Most people do just fine with a good, gentle cleanser and a hydrating moisturizer.


  1. This was a myth I believed to until I tried Olay Dual Action Cleanser + pore scrub. It is so gentle but gives the best scrub!

  2. Thanks for the tips. Keep them coming :)
