Busted: Common Skincare Myths Exposed!

One can easily survive a bad hair day by hiding their hair behind a huge hat, or wrapping a scarf around their head but when an ugly zit decides to make a spot on a pretty face, the only solution that one can think of would be to ground themselves until the zit, and the ugly marks are gone.
