    When it comes to skincare, there is so much information out there that it can be difficult to know where to start. 

    Should you be double cleansing, is sunscreen required on a cloudy day and is an eye cream really necessary? 

    To separate some of the fact from the fiction, FEMAIL enlisted the help of leading Australian dermatologist Dr Natasha Cook to debunk some of the most popular skincare myths.

    You need an eye cream

    Dr Cook candidly called the advice that you need an eye cream 'absolute garbage'.

    She said other items in your skincare routine can double as or have the same effect as eye cream. 

    'The ingredients are often the same with no additional key benefit apart from breaking the budget,' she told Daily Mail Australia.

    So ditch that pricey eye cream and just apply extra moisturiser around your sockets. 

    Oily skin doesn't need a moisturiser

    It's often thought that those with oily skin do not need a moisturiser.

    But Dr Cook said if you have an oily complexion, you do need a product - just a lighter one. 

    'In fact wearing the right moisturiser will actually reduce oil output by a process known as biofeedback,' she explained.

    'The little bit of moisture calms the oil glands down and they go into a state of relaxation.'
