Skincare Mistakes And How To Avoid Them
1. Washing your face with hot water
Firstly, I learned this the hard way. I love taking a shower in hot water. So hot when I come out of the shower my skin gets all red. Plus it starts to itch a lot. Hot water will irritate your skin. And not only irritate, but it will also dry out the skin.
So it is best to set on lukewarm water and not overdo it. Better lukewarm water in the shower than dry and irritated skin, right?
2. Not doing allergy tests
I bet you didn’t expect this, am I right? But this is very important. So, I write this on almost every review. I know a lot of people don’t even think about this when they buy a product.
I know the excitement around the new product. You can’t wait to smell and try it, but… Are you sure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients? So you better protect yourself and make sure everything is okay. Clean the part of the skin where you will do the test. Put the product on that part and wait 24 hours. If there is no reaction great if there is a reaction do not use it.
3. Using the same towel for body and face
Well, this one is pretty clear. I mean come on, think about it. With a body towel, you wipe your whole body, your whole body. By whole, I mean both ass and legs…and other parts, you know what I mean.
So, in this case, I prefer two different towels. And it’s okay if you have a different opinion.
4. You don’t wash makeup sponges and brushes
Have you noticed that the sponges start to stink after a while? Yes, don’t let the sponges get to that point. Bacteria and moisture can build up in the sponge, which is not good for you.
What am I doing about it? Well, I’m too lazy to wash them. I throw them away and buy new ones, just like that. You can of course wash if you’re not as lazy as I am.
5. Applying too much pressure during exfoliation
Just because you press harder doesn’t mean you exfoliate better. It doesn’t work that way. This can severely damage and irritate the skin. With this, you will do the opposite of what you intended.
Better make gentle pressure and massaging in circular motions. You love your skin, you don’t want to damage it.
In conclusion, I hope that in the future you will avoid or correct some of these things. And if you don’t need to correct any of this, congratulations you’re better than me.
