THE MYTH: Drinking lots will prevent wrinkles.
THE TRUTH: "There is not one study that say's water will make the skin look better. Unless you severely dehydrated, you wont notice a difference in your skin by drinking more."

THE MYTH: Oxygen facials will make skin look younger.
THE TRUTH: "They're Hokey, and there is no proof they work. They're probably not harmful, but glycolic peels or microdermabrasion treatmenst are more effective."

THE MYTH: Using a rich moisturizer will stave off wrinkles.
THE TRUTH: "It might temporarily minimize the appearance of fine lines, but there is no evidence that a regular cream will prevent aging. You need one with an anti-aging ingredient."

THE MYTH:  Facial Exercises will keep the skin from sagging.
THE TRUTH: "Its the skin that's get saggy not the muscles. And you might even increase the lines in your face because you are making expressions that contributes to them."
