1. Over cleansing
There is no need to wash your face more than twice a day. Any more may strip the skin of its natural oils and damage the skin barrier. Over cleansing can lead to adult acne, reddish, patchy and flaky skin.
2. Ignoring your neck and chest
The chest and neck need the same love that your face does! You should be bringing all of your skincare down your neck and chest to keep it healthy since the neck is prone to showing signs of aging.
3. Applying too much product
You might be using too much serum or moisturizer. You only need a small amount to cover without using excess product. If you feel sticky after your Vitamin C serum, you have put too much on! You will save money in the long run by not going overboard.
4. You are not wearing sunscreen every day, all year long
I know we cram sunscreen down your throat but its for good reason! Whether you are outside, indoors, on a sunny day, or cloudy day you are getting exposure to UV radiation. In our office we love to use EltaMD UV Clear Tinted sunscreen as a primer to foundation or BB cream. Give it a try!
5. Skipping eye makeup remover
This is probably one of the WORST things you can do and you know you’ve done it; skimped on your cleansing ritual only to wake up with huge rings of mascara and eyeliner under your eyes. That makeup sits in your skin and gets imbedded into your pores which can not only irritate skin but also lead to noticeable dryness, and fine lines.
6. You think oily skin doesn’t need a moisturizer
Not hydrating your skin actually is sending it into overdrive causing it to produce more oil! All skin types need hydration, and you will re-balance your skin and it will become less oily over time with a proper moisturizer.
7. Turning up the temperature
Hot water dries out your skin, making it prone to irritation both from your products you apply after you wash and from the hot water itself. Try using luke-warm water and a cold rinse after to help tighten the appearance of pores.
