Healthy skin care is the key to gorgeous looking skin and facial appearance. Your Skin care practice embraces all you do to maintain a healthy looking and brilliantly shiny skin. It comprises of such things as the quality of food you take, protection of your skin from over exposure to the sun, proper use of emollients that improve the beauty of your skin like cosmetics, exfoliation, fillers, and so on. Your daily routine skin care determines the overall health condition of your skin. It can make or break your skin. Here are 5 dangerous skin care habits that you should immediately break away from if you desire a healthy and bubbly looking skin.
You don’t wear sunscreen
Sun protection is a significant part of skin care. Although we need the sun for our daily dosage of vitamin D, over exposure of our skin to the sun can cause a great harm to our skin.
UVA and UVB radiations from the sun result to various degrees of sunburn, premature ageing and heightened risk of suffering from skin cancer. Ultra violet radiation on the skin can rid the skin of its moisture and result to patchy skin tone. The result is that your skin loses its elasticity and easily sags and wrinkles.
Sunscreen helps to protect your skin from the dangerous effects of the sun. You need to wear sunscreen between 15-20 minutes before sun exposure. You need to re-apply it generously and recurrently two to four hours of being exposed, after sweating and swimming. You need to use about a tablespoonful size for all your body parts that are exposed to the sun. Some sunscreens are in the form of creams, others are in the form of gels or lotions. Check the SPF number before you buy. The higher the SPF factor, the more protection it could offer. You need to use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
You pick and burst Pimples
When you burst or pick at pimples on your face, you are worsening the situation. Rather than constituting a cure or remedy for your acne, the habit increases and worsens breakouts. There will always be that temptation to pick at them but try to resist the urge. By squeezing the pimple, you force the bacteria and the acne infection deep down your skin resulting to more breakouts. Additionally, you end up having wounds and scars all over your face and skin
You over exfoliate your skin
Although exfoliation is a good skin care habit, you must take care to do everything with moderation. Over exfoliating your skin can make your face feel sore, red and goaded. To avoid this, ensure that the exfoliation products you use on your skin are mild and not harsh. Try not to do it too regularly. Being harsh to your skin in this way makes it less able to hold and retain moisture. It also leads to a dryer skin and makes it easily hurt, infected and inflamed.
You are using wrong skin care products
The worst thing you could do to your skin is to regularly use skin care products that don’t go well with your skin type. Your skin will never look healthy if all you do is load huge lists of wrong products on your skin. A skin care product that is good for one person may not be the best for the other. To ensure you are using a skin care product that is perfect for your skin type, you need to seek the advice of a professional. You should never use moisturizing skin care product if you have oily skin to avoid being infested with acne. On the other hand, you need a good moisturizing cream for example if you have dry skin.
You don’t remove or wash off your Make Up
Many people don’t realize how essential it is to clean their face. The basic of your skin care routine, is to keep it properly cleaned and hygienic. You must clean up your skin and face on a day to day basis. Mounting different make-up on your face without cleaning the previous ones can cause serious skin damage. Your skin need to be cleansed first and foremost before addition of any beauty augmentation product. If not you’d be gradually turning yourself into a monster and making your skin look unappealing and dull.
Follow these steps to ensure that you are adequately taking care of your skin.
