Some habits can have an impact on our skin without us even realizing. Let’s look at 5 ways to prevent them!
“Old habits die hard,” they say. But some habits you might be used to might be damaging your skin, so it’s worth giving these tips a chance! These are the top five skincare routine mistakes you might be making:
Being too rough when removing your make up
Removing your makeup is essential, but please, be gentle, especially in the area around your eyes. The skin around your eyes is particularly delicate. So, saturate the toning cloth with an oil-free, liquid eye makeup remover, hold it on your eyes for 20 seconds to dissolve the makeup and slowly wipe it away avoid rubbing it.
Not wearing sunscreen
A lot has been said about this, but let’s hear it one more time: always wear sunscreen! It is the main cause of skin cancer and early aging.
Not removing your makeup at night
Going to bed with your makeup on might seriously age your skin. It causes unnecessary free radical exposure as they build up during the day and you are going to bed with all that! Oxidative stressors can break down collagen and cause wrinkles.
If your skin is hydrated all the time it will ensure that your skin is a strong barrier against pollutants and other invaders that can eventually cause your skin to wrinkle and age.
Applying makeup too roughly
The same way as removing your makeup roughly can damage your skin, applying it forcefully can also cause your skin to age prematurely. Avoid harsh bristles and pulling at your skin while applying eyeliner or eyeshadow.
In short: be gentle in the way you touch your skin, moisturize, wear sunscreen and cleanse your face every night before going to bed, and your skin will remain healthy for longer.
