I am sure , reader who are reading this blog are already aware what is good and what is bad for their skin. For example to have a healthy skin drink plenty of water, get at least 7-8 hours of sleep and take your makeup off every night before going to bed. On the flip side, you are also aware of the bad habits that are detrimental to your skin, like eating greasy, fast food lacking in nutrients or drinking too many sugary drinks.
If you have been suffering from a skin problem its time to try something new on your skin. You need to be aware of where you might be going wrong with your skincare regime. Lets get to the bottom of the weird habits that are making our skin worse.
1. Using Manual Skincare Brushes For Exfoliation Daily
Many of us use manual skincare brush for daily cleaning and exfoliation of their skin. We face increased pollution in our daily lives that leave dirt and other particle on our skin. These are best removed efficiently from your skin, along with make-up and skincare like sunscreen at night time. Manual facial brushes can be too hard on your skin as they blindly remove surface skin cells. If you are going to use a manual spin-brush for your skin, limit it to once per week. If your skin feels tight, sore, or looks irritated, stop using it.
2. Thinking that using Sunscreen with higher SPF
Most consumers mistakenly assume that label SPF numbers prevents sun tan and skin cancer. SPF sunscreens made from soluble filters are UVB biased, they expose you to unfiltered UVA radiation that will lead to chronic UVA damage over time or possibly increase your risk of skin cancer. Our suggestion is to choose your SPF depending on your exposure to sun and your work profile .Mixing your moisturizer with sunscreen keep your skin hydrated all the time
3. Assuming That Organic Skincare Products Will Be Great For Your Skin
Organic ingredients can certainly make a nice addition to your skincare but they’re not a sufficient criteria on their own. ‘Organic’ or ‘natural’ are not synonyms for ‘safe’ or ‘effective.’ Whether an ingredient is from a natural or synthetic source, it still has a chemical formula. Organic in the chemical sense simply means carbon based with carbon chains and often, an extract has several ingredients each with its own chemical formula. Any natural/organic agent may still be toxic or allergenic, the best example is poison ivy and essential citrus acids
4.Having Extractions Done
Most people have heard that they must not pick, extract, squeeze, or pop pimples.It may be too damaging for the pore and often complicated by pigment disturbance and rarely a pit that takes longer to heal and fill in, or a permanent scar in the skin.
5. Using Products With Citrus Based Essential Oils During The Day
Lemon or lime juice that touches skin and is then exposed to sunlight may result in the sudden appearance of brown streaks or spots without any warning, with no preceding redness or blisters. If you have had a spritz of lime juice on your skin in sunlight, you could have this unfortunate experience and develop unsightly brown pigment in the pattern of the contact. Lemon or lime juice on the skin after sun exposure will cause fairly dark pigmentation.
6.Taking Long, Hot Showers
7. Choosing the Wrong Moisturizer
Applying a moisturizer is often the first step that people take to help restore hydration to dry, cracked skin. While this is certainly a necessary step to incorporate into your regular skincare routine, keep in mind that not all moisturizers are created equal. Depending on your skin type, you may need a heavier or lighter moisturizer to help seal in moisture without irritating your skin. For very sensitive skin types, look for skincare products that contain natural moisturizing ingredients like jojoba esters, fatty acids and vitamin E to help gently nourish and hydrate skin.
8. Touching your face
You probably don’t even realize you are doing it. The more you touch your face, the more dirt and grime you are essentially rubbing into your pores. Make sure your hands are clean when applying makeup or lotion as well.
9. Talking on phone
Talking a lot over phone can cause rashes along jawline and cheek. It is better to use antibactorial wipe or a head phone
10. Eating too much sodium
Having too much sodium squeezes moisture from your skin leaving it dry and dull. Invest in hydrating facial moisturizer and reduce you salt content
11. Dirty pillow
If you use pillow while sleeping, it is important to change pillow cover once in 2 week or use a bed cover for your bed. The entire day pillow’s get covered with lot of dust and unwanted bacteria which gets on to your skin while sleeping.
