7 Of The Biggest Mistakes You’re Making With Your Skincare Regime
Jacqueline Brennan is a pro beauty therapist and owner of Inskin Medi Spa, so it’s her job to get up close and personal with the skincare mistakes we’re making on the daily. She’s shared with us the blunders she sees most often.
1. Doing what your girlfriend does
Two skins are never the same. Allow a professional to decide what’s good for your skin.
2. Forgetting about your neck, décolletage and hands
We have so much environmental exposure, that’s why it’s important to protect and treat them.
Don’t over-treat your skin with anything such as chemical peels, lasers, twice-a-day Clarisonics, or scrubs.
4. Not protecting your face with SPF
Also, make sure you don’t forget SPF on hands, ears, and feet!
5. Skipping your nightly face wash
Our face picks up more pollutants and grime than you’d think during the day, even if you don’t wear makeup. While you’re sleeping, your skin regenerates, meaning it rubs off dead skin cells and builds new ones. When you have buildup of makeup or other pollutants, it makes it hard for your skin to get rid of those dead skin cells.
6. Being too rough with your eyes
Eye makeup can be really stubborn, especially if it is waterproof. The skin around your eyes is very thin and very susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles. When you scrub them with makeup remover or pull on the skin a lot it will start to sag early. A good tip is to use a pre-oil cleanser to remove eye makeup!
7. Using hot water
When winter rolls around, nothing seems more relaxing than a hot shower or bath. But hot water dehydrates your skin, making it itchy and dry. Instead take a lukewarm shower and blot your face dry, instead of scrubbing it with the towel.
