3 Common Skin-Care Mistakes You Need To Avoid

No one ever formally teaches us how to look after our skin. However, the health of our skin affects our lives daily and influences our confidence, comfort, and appearance. We put our skin through a lot of trial and error, and if we don’t have the proper skin-care knowledge, we can worsen conditions rather than help them.

Learn about some of the most common skin-care mistakes you should avoid and find out how to better look after your skin.

Not Wearing SPF

Many people look at skin care as a form of treatment. Although skin-care products are effective at reducing inflammatory breakouts, hyperpigmentation, and dry skin, they can also function as preventative measures. Prevention is critical to maintaining healthy skin.

The sun’s UV rays prompt the production of free radicals on your skin, which break down collagen and increase signs of aging, such as wrinkles, dark spots, and sagginess. Sun damage also causes extreme dryness, peeling, and skin mutations. Applying sunscreen and products rich in antioxidants, like the Stabilised Vitamin C Serum, protects your skin from harmful UV rays. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, preventing skin damage. Wearing sunscreen paired with antioxidant skin-care products creates a protective layer on the surface of your skin that blocks UV rays and stabilizes free radicals, keeping your skin healthy and youthful.

Going To Bed Without Cleansing

Throughout the day, your skin comes into contact with toxins in the air, dirt, and sweat. The build-up of grime combined with any makeup and dead skin cells can clog pores and cause breakouts, irritation, and inflammation. Your pillowcases, hair, and blankets—anything that encounters your skin when you sleep—can rub any lingering impurities against the surface of your skin, further causing skin damage and irritation.

Cleansing your skin before bed with an effective and natural cleanser, like the Carrot Butter Cleanser from The Organic Pharmacy, eliminates impurities and residue that build up during the day. Going to bed with clean skin prevents irritations and breakouts and lets your skin breathe and heal during the night.

Skipping Weekly Exfoliation

Weekly exfoliation is an essential skin-care step that eliminates dead skin cells and unclogs pores. Exfoliation gives your nutrient-rich serums and creams a clear path to their respective destinations.

Skipping out on weekly exfoliation leaves you with a build-up of dead skin cells. The dead skin can mix with excess oil, sweat, and residue on the skin’s surface, blocking your skin-care products from actually penetrating your skin. Don’t skip out on this essential skin-care step, and use Cinq Mondes’ Seeds and Flowers Exfoliant weekly to remove dead skin and other debris.

Final Thoughts

A nutritious meal requires healthy ingredients—so does effective skin care. The type of products you use influences the results of your good skin habits. What you use on your skin matters, and disregarding your products’ ingredient list can lead to exposure to toxic and harsh substances.
