For Wrinkles & Lines:

Frown lines and wrinkles can be discouraging. You’ve probably heard of Botox. Xeomin is an alternative that can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in between the eyes. It works like Botox does to block the release of chemicals that cause muscle contraction.

Skin Care Product Claims to Watch Out For

Sometimes cosmetic products go a little too far in explaining how they’ll help.

skin care products that don't do much

“Refines the pores”

Dermatologists generally agree that topical pore refiners offer a possible temporary result, but aren’t a great long-lasting solution to acne breakouts and oily skin.

“Reduce undereye puffiness”

Many products labeled as eye creams aren’t actually much different than a typical facial moisturizer.

“Facial rollers for better complexion.”

There isn’t much science to support facial rollers as a solution to bad complexion. Most facial rollers from home don’t reach down far enough into the skin to make a lasting impact. You’d be better off getting a professional microneedling that will actually produce collagen back into the skin.

“Charcoal masks to remove impurities.”

Charcoal can absorb certain toxic substances, but using it to get a cleaner face is a stretch.

“Anti-cellulite creams firm up the skin.”

These creams aren’t backed by a lot of research. The active ingredient is actually caffeine, which might temporarily improve the skin’s appearance. It’s important to note that these creams mostly influence appearance, not actual cellulite, which we all have plenty of.

“Use tanning oil to protect your skin while getting a tan.”

Most tanning oils have low, insufficient SPF levels. The sun is among the most dangerous thing for skin, so it’s better to just skip the tanning oil and use the right sunscreen.

“Get rid of stretch marks with this topical cream.”

Stretch marks are bands of broken elastin under the skin that change the appearance of skin after it is stretched. Research published in the British Journal of Dermatology found that topical creams don’t help stretch marks. A better option is laser treatment.

In general, be careful when you read vague claims like “clinically proven” and “studies show” on cosmetic products. The “research” these cosmetic companies do is often dubious and flawed.
