Although you may already know how to care for your skin and make it appear better, there are still many secrets you don’t know.
Today, we will be focusing on skincare. How to transform your skin with products you already have. But how can you make them more innovative and effective? And how to get the results you desire. We will also be focusing on the mistakes in skincare routines and how you can avoid them.
Common Skin Care Mistakes To Avoid, And How To Fix Them
#1 Mistake – Cotton Pads
Since we learned how to care for our skin, people have recommended that we use a cotton pad to apply toner to our faces and then gently rub it across our faces. We have stopped using cotton pads.
Many women use it as a second cleanse system. They look at the dirt and grime that is left behind after washing their face. But, once we know how to properly clean our skin, we don’t need to use toner to remove makeup or other such things.
Instead, we recommend that you pour the toner directly into a glass and then gently rub it onto your skin. This will allow the toner to penetrate the skin and ensure you are getting all the benefits.
It will give your skin a glow. Spray form is also a popular option for many toners.
#2 Mistake – Exfoliation
Many people mistakenly believe that acne is caused by exfoliation. So, most people think of exfoliation as those scrubs for the face. These scrubs can only irritate your skin.
Chemical exfoliants are gentle and effective in removing dead skin cells, leaving your skin clear and smooth. We have compiled a list of great chemical exfoliants that you can use.
- This will combat visible blemishes, improve skin texture, and increase skin radiance.
- Farmacy Honeymoon Glob AHA Hydrating Night Cream: We love this pharmacy’s honeymoon glow. Although it is more expensive, it will make your pimples disappear overnight.
- The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solutions 240ml: can be used as a chemical exfoliant at a very affordable price.
Another misconception we believe is in skincare. People talk about exfoliators as a way to treat dry skin. However, it is not true. It depends on how microbeads are used.
It is a risky assumption to assume they will glide across your skin and crosshatch in such a way as to lift the dead skin off of your skin. Exfoliating dry, flaky skin with an exfoliator won’t remove all the flaky skin. We still have the problem.
This can be done with scotch tape. It will work every time. This will get rid of the dead skin, so it leaves no room for physical exfoliators. We want you to see just how amazing these can be when used correctly.
This will make sure that any product you apply to your skin twice per week after exfoliation. It will also help you get the most out of the products you use.
#3 Mistake – Lazy Skincare Routines
Your first mistake that could be causing acne is skipping your morning skincare routine. Most people will wash their face and do their fall skin care routine every night. However, it becomes more difficult to do so each morning.
If you have children, you may find yourself too tired to wash your face every morning.
It’s false. You don’t have to skip your morning skin care routine. Even if your schedule is crazy or you’re super busy, it is important to take the time to do your morning skincare. There are bacteria in your pillow, your hands, and your phone that can get on your skin at night, causing acne.
#4 Mistake – The Dropper
This is because you might be using oils and serums incorrectly. Let’s say we have a bottle rosehip oil. This oil is made from the seeds of rosebushes. It is rich in vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acid that can do wonderful things for your skin.
Many people apply oils to their skin by using the dropper. If you return the dropper to the bottle after applying it to your skin, it can cause acne.
It is easy to use: simply drop some on your palm and gently rub it onto your skin. This will prevent cross-contamination.
#5 Mistake – Intensity
This is a huge mistake. This mistake is huge.
Instead, wash your face gently with a gentle cleanser. If you do use a brush to clean your face, be sure it has small bristles and is silicone. This will make your skin feel soft and not irritate.
#6 Mistake – Expensive Doesn’t Always Mean Good
This is because price does not necessarily mean efficacy. So, even if a product is expensive, it can still be great for your skin. Although expensive products can be great for your skin, here’s an example.
It is the latest rose moisturizer and it is very expensive. Even though we enjoyed it for a while it caused my skin to become textured after using it for a few months.
#7 Mistake – 60 Second Rule
This is the golden prescription from derma’s catalogues. To ensure that your face is clean and healthy, wash it for at least 60 seconds. Many people believe that 10 seconds is enough time to wash your face.
It’s not. After 10 seconds, there could be bacteria, makeup, sebum or other substances on your skin. It is better to wash it for one minute. This will thoroughly clean your skin and prevent any pimples from forming.
#8 Mistake – Sterilize
This hack could also be included in the lazy skincare section. This is because you need to ensure that your makeup tools are regularly cleaned, sanitized, and killed of germs that may be on your skin.
This includes makeup brushes and your keyboard. If you have a baby, it would also include that baby stuff. You are spreading bacteria and germs to your skin by touching it. This can lead to acne and clogged pores.
Although we know that washing your makeup brushes isn’t your favorite thing in the world, it is extremely important and everyone needs to do it more.
You should clean your makeup brushes regularly, regardless of whether you use it often or not. Bacteria can grow on your bristles and cause serious health problems.
Then you apply it to your face when you next put on makeup. Voila! Although it can be annoying, this is essential if you want to avoid breakouts
#9 Mistake – Popping Pimples
If you get pimples and you don’t want it to be popped because of resistance, you are not alone. Although it’s a guilty pleasure, we know it can cause scarring and spread bacteria from pimples onto other parts of the face as well as from the hands onto the face.
We have changed the routine to use spot treatments.
This is a sulfur-based treatment. This treatment is available from many brands. This technique isn’t specific to any one product. We prefer this one. It’s a great way to clear pimples overnight. It will leave you with some dry skin. On the third day it will look much better.
We recommend that you use a little concealer on days like these when you have redness under the eyes and on the pimple to make it look fresher.
Bonus Technique: Dry Cleansing
This is one of the most effective skincare methods that can clear up your acne and transform your skin. Dry Cleansing is basically using your cleanser directly on your skin. You simply need to take your cleanser and apply it to your skin. Then, take 30 seconds to massage the cleanser into the skin.
This will make your skin feel a bit tacky. It’s because you’re used to using water for cleansers. But, as you can see, the cleanser starts to get super sticky and turn a little white.
This will be done by moistening our hands with water. Then, we’re going to massage again.
This goes deeper than we thought. We love this method because it leaves your skin so clean, bright, and clear.
