Stepping into the world of skincare? The skin care universe is more vast than you think it is. The right skin care routine will get your skin glowing and blooming in no time. However, there are many rookie mistakes all skin gurus make in the beginning of their skincare journey. These mistakes are very easy to commit, because they seem just so mundane. However these mundane mistakes may end up irritating, redenning and breaking out your skin.
Although sensitive skin is usually genetic, most fair skinned and red haired people have sensitive skin. Sensitive and oily skin people are much more acne prone.We all need a subtle skincare routine in our life. If you wish to buy skin care products in Australia, check out Synergie Skin.
No matter what your skin type is, you need to avoid the following mistakes or you will end up irritating your skin. Even if I am using good skincare products? Yes, committing the following mistakes will mess up all the efforts your expensive products work hard for healing your skin.
Sleeping With Makeup On.
The first mistake we all have made (whether we admit it or not) is sleeping with make up on. After a long night at the club or a grand dinner, it is natural to feel too tired to take that make up off of your face. However this tiny show of laziness can cost you a lot (in better words, cost all the money you have spent in your skin care). The ideal way to remove makeup is to gently cleanse with a gentle cleanser and hydrating the skin afterwards.
Letting The Serum Dropper Touch Your Face.
This is a very common mistake we see even influencers making. Letting your serum dropper touch your face while application is a horrible mistake that allows bacteria to transfer not just to your dropper but to your whole serum. This will waste not just your money but will also make your product useless.
Not Hydrating Enough (And Not Using Hyaluronic Acid).
If you are given the option to choose one skincare product for the rest of your life, choose a moisturiser. When your skin is hydrated well enough, it will not have acne breakouts or a broken texture. Whether your skin is oily or dry, you must always keep your skin moisturized. A ‘super’ moisturiser is hyaluronic acid that you can layer under your moisturiser.
Not Using The Right Sunscreen.
We all know how important sunscreen is for us. This UV ray protecting layer slows down ageing effects on our skins. However, it is also very important to use the right sunscreen and not just the first one you set your eyes on. Your sunscreen should be at least 50 SPF. Avoid sunscreen with active ingredients such as ocybenzone.
Over-Exfoliating Or Not Exfoliating At All.
Exfoliation is an important tool in skincare…only if it is done right. If done right, all the dead skin cells are washed off of your skin. However, over exfoliation kills your baby cells causing redness, irritation, dryness and breakouts. So be careful with your exfoliaters.
