Having better and healthy-looking skin is not so difficult. Clear, fresh, and blemish-free skin doesn’t require a long 20-step skin care routine, injections, or plastic surgeries. Some people are lucky enough to have good skin because of their genetics. In contrast, others can definitely get bright and youthful skin by adopting or correcting a few skincare habits, which (if not ignored) can actually make a noticeable difference.
It’s wonderful to have a daily skin care regimen. But what if you’re doing something wrong apart from following your skincare routine regularly?
Adopting a skin care regimen is only the beginning, but the effectiveness of any skin care routine depends on how you follow it for the short/long term in an adequate way without missing on few critical points. The most typical blunder people make while following a skin care routine is; treating each of the four seasons equally when it comes to skin care.
We lose our chances of having healthy skin by unintentionally ignoring simple habits that can work against us and spoil our skin. However, if you know what you’re doing wrong, you can always correct it (better late than never). Here are the few common skin care mistakes which result in wrecking our skin sooner or later.
Basic Skin Care Mistakes That Are Ruining Your Skin
It’s pretty evident that we spend money on high-quality skin care products to achieve shiny and more youthful skin, and of course, there’s no harm in that. But sometimes, we don’t get satisfactory results because of some common skin care mistakes we unknowingly make!
1. Not Washing Your Face Before Sleeping
It’s so hard to wash your face before sleeping, as after a tiring day, all you want to do is just fall asleep right away. Though it’s a bad idea for your skin, especially if you’re wearing makeup (use makeup remover wipes). So, wash your face with a mild cleanser to remove all the dust and impurities because nighttime is essential for your skin in repairing damaged cells and restoring its natural glow. You can try Le Rośe Moisturizing Cleansing Emulsion by Pearl De Flore for effective cleansing.
2. Skipping Double Cleansing
Lack of adequate cleansing will not only lead to more breakouts and will also fasten aging. It’s a common mistake to use face wipes for cleansing purposes. Face wipes won’t clean your skin; they can only remove makeup (also make your face dry and take essential oils from the skin). So, it’s advisable to double cleanse your face by simply washing it twice, once to remove the makeup and thoroughly cleanse your skin.
Try Le Rośe pH-Balancing Skin Tonic to have refreshed and clean skin.
3. Over-Exfoliating Your Skin
Over-exfoliation can harm your skin by damaging skin’s natural moisture barrier, which can cause other skin issues like irritation, inflammation, redness or acne. Therefore, it’s always best to use one type of exfoliation at a time (do it once or twice a week, depending on your skin combination and sensitivity).
Try Le Rose Resurfacing Micro-Peel which gently removes flaky skin and impurities without leaving your skin dry or irritated.
4. Applying Sun Screen Only In Summers
Sunscreen helps prevent tan and hyperpigmentation but also plays a vital role in preventing skin cancer. It’s a common yet biggest skincare mistake to avoid using sunscreen on a daily basis, be it cloudy, rainy or sunny. It’s best to use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or above to protect your skin against UV radiation and sun damage.
Try Orchidee Double Defense Skin Shield SPF 30 to save yourself from sun exposure and harmful radiation.
