Smooth Synergy is a full service cosmedical spa in NYC which specializes in Laser Hair Removal, Endermologie, Microdermabrasion and other Cosmetic Aesthetics. We know that amidst the constant buzz about new, must-have products, the influx of anti-aging treatments, and skin-care advice from every corner, it’s hard to separate the hype from reality. Fortunately for you, we are here to debunk the top skin care myths.

1. The higher the SPF, the better the protection. False! The SPF on a sunscreen refers to the amount of protection the product offers from UVB rays or sunburns. Many sunscreens, therefore, need to offer protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Look for an SPF of at least 15 and one of the following ingredients: mexoryl, oxybenzone or avobenzone (Parsol 1789) for UVA protection, or titanium dioxide.

2. You don’t need sunscreen on a cloudy day. False! Just because you can’t see or feel the sun, doesn’t mean it isn’t there! Even on a cloudy day, UV radiation from the sun reaches the earth’s surface. So make sure you use sunscreen every day and reapply it every two hours as well as after swimming or sweating.

3. Scrubbing your face with soap keeps your skin healthy and acne-free. False! When you scrub your face, you’re taking off some of the protective oils and barriers, which tends to lead to rashes and even burns. Don’t treat your skin that way! Instead, use a gentle cleanser followed by a moisturizer or sunscreen.

Here at Smooth Synergy, our mission is to give you synergistic services tailored to fit your individual skin care needs. Call today to set up an appointment!
