Your skin requires the right kind of attention to blossom and we are not talking about the obvious like applying sunscreen or not constantly picking at your face or getting enough sleep. You may think you are doing it all right but you may be wrecking it all instead if you are doing the following;
You are using chemical-heavy skincare products!
Make it a point to always use skincare products that are dermatologically-tested, certified toxin-free & use natural ingredients. Many people use products with harmful chemicals or toxins in ingredients such as sulphates, parabens, mineral oil, silicones, phenoxyethanol and more which clog pores & cause skin irritation. Our Lead Specialist recommends the right products for your skin type.
You are ignoring Hyaluronic Acid!
Hyaluronic acid is rightly praised for its moisturizing properties. It can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water by extracting moisture from the air. If healthy, youthful skin is your priority, you can’t afford to ignore Hyaluronic Acid.
You are storing your products wrong!
Most products are fine at a good range of natural cool and warm temperatures throughout the year, but if they receive direct sunlight on a hot day, they can heat up and deactivate. Proper storage is even harder when travelling but the bottom-line is, pay special mind to the active ingredients like Vitamin C, prescription retinol, antioxidants and UV filters.
You are under-exfoliating or over-exfoliating!
Exfoliating your skin helps to get rid of dead skin cells, removes excess sebum and opens clogged pores which helps reduce blackheads & acne. It also helps it absorb skincare products in a better manner. It’s best to exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week. Over-exfoliating isn’t good too because your skin doesn’t replenish itself fast enough to endure constant buffing. Give it some time or else you risk irritating it since there are no baby cells underneath waiting to ascend.
You are giving up or getting complacent too fast!
Skincare is a long game, and it can take months of dedicated use in order to see results. This is especially true with anti-aging and resurfacing regimens. It takes a long time to condition the skin to the ingredients in the products, and to fully “turn over” to reveal the clearer complexion. Regardless of which products you’re using, you typically need to keep using them in order to maintain results. A regimen should be an ongoing commitment, with necessary adjustments along the way.
You are sleeping carelessly!
Is your bedroom too-cold, too-dry? Do you sleep on unwashed pillow cases? These things wreak havoc on skin. Keep your pillow cases and hair clean in order to prevent bacterial and product build up inside the pores which can cause blemishes.
You are neglecting your under-eyes!
The skin under your eyes is thinner and more delicate as compared to the skin on the rest of your face. It also loses moisture more easily. Our Lead Specialist will recommend you an under eye cream that is lightweight, gets absorbed easily and hydrates the skin without making it feel oily. A good under eye cream also reduces the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.
You are rubbing your skin dry instead of patting it!
You should always pat or dab products onto your skin instead of rubbing them in. Patting the product leads to less wastage and helps push it deeper into your skin. Dabbing products on to your skin is a less irritating and gentle way of putting products on your skin.
While self-medication may seem like an easy option, checking in periodically with our Lead Specialist will save you a lot and is your surest way to attaining the flawless skin you seek.
