Are you washing your face the right way? This awfully simple daily routine if not done correctly can actually do more harm than good to your skin.
Here are the top 5 mistakes that can make your skin cry and some beauty and skin care tips to avoid them.
1. Washing Too Much
To keep our skin glowing and healthy we have the tendency to wash it over and over again. This especially happens when you have an oily skin issue. However over washing can make your skin dry and in case of oily textures your skin will overproduce oil, negating the entire cleaning process. Cleaning your skin twice daily will serve much better results.
2. Unclean Hands
Often people tend to forget to wash their hands before washing their face. All this means is that you are not really cleaning your face, as there would be bacteria and dirt on your hands that get transferred to your face causing it to remain unclean. Keeping your hands clean is half the battle won for a healthy skin.
3. Not Drenching Enough
Whenever you apply any cleansing product on your face it is very important to rinse it off fully. Cleanser left on the skin can make it drier. The same goes with the face wipes we use to remove dirt, make up or any other cosmetics. These wipes contain a cleanser to dissolve the makeup, so it’s absolutely necessary for the skin to be drenched completely to get rid of that residue cleanser.
4. Over Exfoliation
Exfoliation means removal of dead skin cells. A regular exfoliation is necessary for a smoother, tighter, firmer and healthier looking skin. But this can be easily overdone due to its immediate benefits. This over-do can lead to redness or peeling of the skin. To calm your face once it is red use a green tea extract paste mixed with rose water on your face and rinse it with cold water after 15 minutes. Remember not to over exfoliate, your skin will thank you later.
5. Dirty Washing Tools
If you use a loofah or washcloth to clean your face, it is essential to keep those items clean as well. A dirty loofah can redeposit dirt on your skin. However opt for a baby loofah which will be softer and less irritating to the skin…after all… a gentle touch is all that it requires.
Hope these skin care tips are useful. Just swap your regular habits and avoid making these common mistakes to get the secret to healthy glowing skin.
Stay beautiful….feel beautiful….
