Have you ever noticed the same skin care ideas always appear in various magazine posts and seeing this, you’re like Not Ever! Well, it just shows that there’s no two-way street to your dreamy flawless skin and in the real sense, you’re just not following the simple tips that’s being offered so it looks like it’s intermittent. What if we say to you, it’s time to really stop wasting your money on expensive skin care products that promise a miracle within 24 hours and just start from the ground up? We put it to you, that the basics are the secret of a great skin.
Without over flogging the safety in dropping those expensive cosmetics, we at City People will love to protect you from 10 Most Common Mistakes ladies make when it comes to taking care of their skin;
(1) USING TONS OF DIFFERENT COSMETICS ALL AT ONCE ON YOUR FACE
It’s really not easy to resist the temptation to buy another face cream or scrub when ads of various brands keep showing up on your timeline as the season’s best beauty items and every skincare company keeps announcing promotions with lots of great reviews but then it’s still worth doing its best to resist it, particularly if you’ve got products that suit you best. You might think the latest items you’re about to purchase would give you a better impact and that’s why you’re constantly changing cosmetics. We love to reveal that you’ve just plugged your way to a bad face. Hence, the new product may become the cause of an allergic reaction.
(2) OVER EXFOLIATING
Our skin repairs itself without any external support but we still use facial scrubs to accelerate the process.. Most ladies believe too much in product abrasivity to give them smoother skin. Yeah, scrubs will make your skin peel faster as well as cleanse your skin, but if you do it on a regular basis, you’ve just written an invitation to acne breakout because this practice would rob your skin of its protective layer. That way, scrubbing once a week is enough for the face.
(3) ALL OF YOUR MAKEUP ITEMS HAVE ALL THE SPF PROTECTION YOU NEED
You will often find tons of Makeup items such as primers, moisturizer, and foundation that contain SPF today. Unfortunately most of these items do not provide ample SPF protection leaving your skin susceptible to sun damage.
A decent sunscreen provides an important protective shield against the harmful UV rays. Use a different sunscreen for face and body to provide maximum protection. For sensitive skin and other skin types, the best sunscreen is one that does not obstruct pores and can be worn discreetly under makeup.
(4) USING THE SAME PILLOWCASE FOR WEEKS.
One of ladies’ most neglected tips is the pillow case syndrome. Most ladies wash their faces each evening before going to sleep but wake up in the morning to blemish on their faces. Your pillow case stores ample oil dirt and dust to cover your face with blemish, so try to wash / change your pillow cases just as much as you wash your face for clean skin. Change the pillow case every 2 days, and also seek to swap it with the silk case.
(5) USING FACE POWDER TO PREVENT OILY SHINES
Most ladies always reach out to get rid of the oil shine on their faces with their face powder which obviously cannot keep the skin matte for a long time. Primer or not, every hour of the day the face shines and no matting powder can help, it can just clog the pores the more. Instead of attempting to cover up the oily shine with dirt, consider matting wipes. They will not have a lasting impact but will at least extract excessive oil residue from the face without obstructing the pores.
(6) SLEEPING WITH MAKE UP ON
We know this sounds pretty simple but as cliché as this sounds, this rule still remains true. Sleeping in your makeup causes bacteria and grime to slip into your pores. Ladies C’mon, this one is too easy to resist.
(7) LEAVING YOUR MAKE UP BRUSHES UNWASHED
Many ladies are guilty of this beauty blunder of missing out every now and then on washing up our makeup brushes. Truth is, whether we feel like it or not, we have to do it regularly to keep our face smooth. Who knows what kind of bacteria might lay around? And we certainly don’t want it on our faces.
(8) PICKING AT THAT PESKY ZIT
Consider treating the acne instead of picking, scratching and punching at a nasty pimple on your face. There are plenty of natural remedies available to get the job done safely and you will be left with no scar.
(9) LETTING ANYTHING TOUCH THEIR FACE
From our mobile phones to our sunglasses, all can carry a lot of bacteria from our daily activities. Our mobile phones are as filthy as a toilet seat. Give a simple wipe-down to every object that touches your face to remove the agents causing acne.
(10) DOING YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE STRAIGHT BEFORE BED TIME
Apply your skin care products and acne medicines at least one hour before bed to allow them to work in the skin. Otherwise all your money will go into your hair and pillowcase.
With this addition to your skin care routine, you’ll help prevent skin damage and be on your way to a brighter and smoother skin.
