Learn the truth and improve your skincare routine. 

Be good to your skin. You’ll wear it every day for the rest of your life. 

Choose products according to your age group.

It's not about the age of your skin, it's about your skin profile (skin type) and concerns.  

Not everyone in the same age group has the same skin so products cannot be tailored to a specific generation. It’s a good idea not to mix brands but to pick a cleanser, mask, serum and moisturizer that have been developed to work together. Swiss line R&D ensures all our products offer the maximum in synergetic bespoke solutions which can be mixed and matched to suit your personal skin concerns.

I can scrub my oily skin or acne away.

This is one of the most common oily skin and acne myths. Cleansing too often, using too much pressure, or mechanically over-exfoliating your skin can actually make the problem even worse. If you like to exfoliate more than once a week, look for an enzymatic masks containing pure Kaolin and Papain. These exfoliate your skin gently, efficiently and can be used regularly (up to 3 times a week). Check out our new Force Vitale Aqua-Pure Enzymatic Mask.

The SPF in my makeup is enough to protect me from the sun.

The amount of SPF in makeup formulas is extremely small and offers limited protection.

You would have to wear layer upon layer of makeup – much more makeup than an average person would wear – to reach the SPF level needed for sufficient protection against the aging powers of the sun. Instead, apply a broad spectrum sunscreen that contains the mineral filter titanium dioxide to protect from both UVA and UVB rays. Swiss line has earned a great reputation all over Asia for the incredible effectiveness, skin-friendly properties and “feather-like feel” of its sun protection products.

Don’t use moisturizer if you have oily skin.

All skin needs hydration, even oily skin. When we wash our face, we strip our skin of its natural moisture so it is up to us to put it back with a moisturizer suitable for our skin type. If not, our skin will overcompensate by producing more sebum than it needs. If your skin type gears towards being oily, choose an oil-free moisturizer and oil-free serum. You’ll see the difference in just a week of regular application. Swiss line has developed a mattifying moisturizer specifically for oily skins Force Vitale Aqua-Pure Mattifying Cream.

My skin type will be the same as my mother’s – “Apple Doesn’t Fall Far from the Tree”

A common myth states that a woman’s skin type will be the same as her mother’s. Although heredity does play an important role, skincare has improved in leaps and bounds since your mother’s youth so if your mother’s skin wrinkled early in life, it does not mean that you have to suffer the same fate. Collections like the Cell Shock Age Intelligence range are formulated to offer effective anti-aging solutions.

We should also remember that we live in a different world from our mother’s and that skin aging is also affected by environmental pollution, smoking and the increased stress levels we now experience in day-to-day life. Swiss line offers products with amazing urban detox properties that smartly shield your skin against smog and work in combination with antioxidant protection to promote younger- and fresher-looking skin. Check out our Cell Shock Facial-Boosting Essence, Cell Shock Face Lifting Complex II and Cell Shock Eye Zone Lifting Complex II.

Besides, chronic skin inflammation increases by stress load we face in our daily life can also cause our skin to age differently.
