7 Skincare Myths vs. Truths

Updated: Apr 1


1. Myth: “I treat myself to a chemical peel seasonally to keep my skin healthy and glowing!”


Truth: Without continuous use of an AHA in your weekly skin care regimen, quarterly chemical

peels will prove no long-term results.


AKTIV Clinical Gold HydroBright Rapid Reverse is better than a peel! It’s safe for at home

use and comes with a demonstration from your AKTIV Skin Coach when you purchase. With

ingredients like Alpha Arbutin, Hyaluronic Acid, Seaweed, Rumex Occcidentalis Extract and

Peptides,in top it provides all the potency of a chemical peel without the irritation!


2. Myth: “My skin gets a daily Vitamin C dose from my vitamins and diet.”


Truth: Vitamin C (L Ascorbic Acid) is a powerful ingredient inside and out. It works with 20

times more potency when applied topically than with oral only use. We all know it is as a

brightener but did you know it is wound healing and has the capability of accelerating collagen

and elastin synthesization?


AKTIV Evolution VITAGLOW C Serum not only has the brightening power to leave your skin

glowing but with the help of Vitamin E it is doubling down on free radical damage!


3. Myth: “I need a granular exfoliant to remove all the dead skin. Grit really helps my face feel

clean and soft.”


Truth: Mechanical exfoliants can be too abrasive causing microtears and inflammation in the

skin. They ultimately create more damage than people think. Chemical or Enzymatic exfoliants

dissolve keratin protein that builds up on the surface of the skin. They smooth, soften, and

maintain hydration levels of the epidermis.


AKTIV Botanical Pineapple Enzyme Mask is a fan favorite exfoliator. The enzymes found in 

pineapple can slough away dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of blackheads, which

means it's ideal for anyone struggling with persistent spots. With the dead skin cells removed,

the skin is able to absorb serums and moisturizers more easily.

4. Myth: “I drink a gallon of water a day. My skin shouldn’t be dehydrated!”


Truth: You go girl! Hydration is vital for your organs to function and because of that your

internal organs will take priority as you consume water making it so it never quite reaches your

epidermis. Which is why it is so important to additionally topically hydrate your skin.


AKTIV Clinical Hyaluronic Revival Serum is the product for the job. With its potential to

hold up to 10,000 times its weight in water, your skin will definitely quench its thirst.


5. Myth: “I just use my face creams and serums for my under eyes.”


Truth: It is a common assumption that this is a way of getting the most out of your product. Your

eye skin is the thinnest area on your body which requires a much smaller molecular size to get

all the anti aging benefits. Instead, apply your creams and serums to your neck, decollete, and

hands since these areas age similarly to facial skin.


AKTIV Evolution Vita Sculpt Eye Cream is the perfect defender against damage and

aging around the eyes. Jam-packed with superstar ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Retinoate

and Collagen to sculpt and plump out fine lines and wrinkles!


6. Myth: “I have oily skin. Believe me, I don’t need any more moisture!”


Truth: Oil and water are not the same. The amount of oil you create is genetic and dependent

upon your pore size. Every skin type needs hydration. Girl, believe me without hydration your

skin is struggling!


AKTIV Clinical Hyaluronic Acid Revival Serum is the product for you. With its lightweight

gel consistency, it’s perfect for all skin types. It gives all the hydration without the heavy, greasy

feel. Shoutout to the Red Tea Extract packing this product with antioxidants to target free radicals

causing acne.


7. Myth: “I don’t use a toner because it dries my skin out. I don’t even know what the purpose of

using it is.”


Truth: Toners are commonly confused with astringents containing a higher alcohol content. The

benefit of using a toner is to restore the skin’s pH to it’s natural balance of 5.5 after cleansing

and exfoliating. It reduces the harmful effects of stripping the skin that can be caused by the

cleansing and exfoliating processes.


AKTIV Clinical Antioxidant pH Restoration is full of antioxidants to fight free radical

damage caused by the sun, environmental and air pollutants that we are exposed to daily! A

quick spritz is the perfect way to start and end your day!
