Of course, every one of us likes to look beautiful and glowing every day, 24*7. In the urge to look wow, we keep on looking for ways to achieve the same. But, do you have any idea... in the efforts to turn your skin look wonderful, you somewhere make small, yet dangerous mistakes in your daily skincare routine!! Stick around to know the 5 common mistakes, which probably every woman does..
- Falling Into Bed With Your Makeup On
How can you forget to remove those abrupt chemicals from your face before going to bed? You can be excused for one drunken night, BUT you can’t make it a habit. Beauty experts believe that leaving your makeup for the night chokes your pore and oil glands. The impacted makeup in the skin pores makes them appear larger. And once your collagen levels drop, the pores won’t snap back easily. Plus, it leads to inflammation.
Exfoliation is a common practice today that probably everybody follows. But, do you know that even over-exfoliation can damage your skin? It’s tempting but very harmful to buff away too much of your skin. By over exfoliation, you’re actually removing the protective barrier of your skin. The removal of the top skin layer exposes it to environmental toxins and sun damage that can cause early aging. Exfoliate two to three times a week, max.
Whether it’s summers, winters or monsoon, whether you’re on your feet or in car…if you’re out of your home…. Sunscreen is a must! UVA light cannot be filtered by any window or glass (except the tinted ones) Even 50 percent of the UVA exposure occurs in the shade. So, make sunscreen your best friend. This will prevent you from wrinkles and discoloration.
Wrong selection of products
Advertisements are all fake today; their sole purpose is to earn profit. Never go with them. A skin product should be bought after determining that it is appropriate according to your skin type and needs. So, don’t keep on running after your favorite celebrity or their endorsements.
Inadequate sleep and water intake
Lack of sleep and water can cause your body to release stress hormones that can lead to lusterless, dry and flaky skin, fine lines and dark circles. Hence, make sure you drink 6-8 glass of water and minimum 7 hours sleep every day to get a healthy glowing skin.
‘Bonus’ Mistake: A healthy nutritious diet can get you what you dream of. Include vitamin C, omega 3 fatty acids and other antioxidants in your daily diet for a newer looking and firmer skin.
