When it comes to taking care of your skin, we do so much to it that sometimes we go too far. The reason we are always doing what we can for our skin is because we age and we want to always look 10 or 20 years younger than we do. We are constantly trying to beat the clock. Because of this, we might actually be hurting our skin. Here are some tips to avoid the skin care mistakes we often make without even realizing it.
Don't use too much moisturizer
We like moisturizing. However we should just be using enough moisturizer to keep our skin from getting dry. When using a daily moisturizer, make sure to use one that has SPF in it to keep our skin safe from the dangerous rays from the sun. A night moisturizer should only be used at night because it doesn't contain any SPF. Make sure to never put moisturizer around the eyes because this skin is thinner and if using moisturizer, this skin can break out into little white spots.
Don't use anti-aging creams before your skin is ready
Sometimes we may think we are looking older than we are and may want to start using anti-aging creams before we are ready for them. If we do this, they will either not have any effect at all or a bad one.
Don't use face-wipes
Go without the face-wipes, period. When using these, they can dry out the skin on the face and even cause stinging and redness. This is because they contain harsh chemicals that our skin does not need.
Never sleep in make-up
Before going to bed at night, make sure to wash your make-up off. Leaving make-up on all night can cause dirt and oil to build up which could then cause breakouts.
