At least as important as knowing what to do is knowing what not to do with regard to skincare. The most common mistakes in skincare, what are they actually?
Cream, on top of the serum, on top of moisturizer
A frequently made mistake in skincare is the excessive use of creams, serums, moisturizers, primers, BB creams and so on. Your skin often does not need all of these products at all and especially not when they are layered on top of each other. The best tip for reducing the number of products you use is to purchase a mild moisturizing cream with the right ingredients for your skin type, so that you can actually use it at any time of the day, both in the morning and in the evening.
Same skincare routine all year round? Let’s mix it up. Since the skin can feel very different in summer than in winter. The cold often dries out the skin much more than the heat. In addition, the sun has a damaging effect on the skin, causing the skin to require more care. Thus, pay close attention to how your skin feels and adjust your regime to maintain radiant skin.
Exfoliation involves the natural process of your skin when your older, damaged skin cells are shed and replaced by new, young skin cells. To help this process, you can use an exfoliant in your skincare routine.
Exfoliants are perfect for removing dead skin cells and making our skin shine. Yet, do not exfoliate the skin too often. If you remove the dead skin cells from the skin too often and over-exfoliate it, the skin loses the required moisture levels, which subsequently damages the skin barrier. This makes your face look dry and dull. Thus, experiment a little with how often your skin can be exfoliated, without losing its natural shine. This number is on average between 1-2 times a week.
You do not always remove your makeup before going to bed? Start quickly with this. By not doing this, the skin cannot breathe, which impurities the skin and problems may arise. How to properly clean the skin? You can read that in this blog.
