myth: use rubbing alcohol to remove oil.

Busted: Stripping the skin of moisture and oil with alcohol can actually cause skin to produce more oil than before.  How?  When the sebaceous glands sense a loss of moisture and oil (which is there between cells to protect your skin), they kick into overdrive to replace what has been lost! For those who self-treat with these harsh, drying ingredients like alcohol, skin is often left dehydrated, irritated and sensitized, and oilier than before.
