Top Urban Skin
seems to be no shortage of urban myths out there regarding skin care.
I thought I would clear up some of this misinformation for all of
you who have been kind enough to keep me updated.
your skin in preparation for those winter tropical trips is NOT
a good idea! You damage your skin as much as if you get burned on
does NOT cause acne.
Lauryl Sulfate is an irritant, NOT a carcinogen.
may cause irritation, NOT advance the aging process. AHAs also do
NOT cause skin cancer.
A and Renova do NOT cause skin cancer.
Exercises may worsen deep facial expression wrinkle lines. Think

and for 30 days after stopping the medication. And ONLY in women.

is useful or not is a different issue, but it is most definitely
not a contributing factor to an addiction.
with aluminum do NOT cause breast cancer. This is one of the most
widely disseminated myths out there, directly aimed at women´s
understandable concerns about

organizations have come out to denounce this lie.
