Piling on products
Are you a skin care products hoarder? That could be the reason for your skin woes. Switching between products too often or using too many different products at one time can screw up your skin. Keep it simple, use a cleanser, toner, moisturiser, sunscreen and an anti-acne or anti-aging product based on your skin needs.
Skipping your dose of SPF
SPF is a medicine your skin needs every day to stay healthy and protected. If you haven’t already start using sunscreen every day on the exposed areas of your body, it’s high time you bring home the Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Gel Sunscreen.
Using chemical laden products
While some chemicals may benefit your skin others can cause more harm than good. It is not easy to identify chemicals in products therefore, the best approach is to go for simple, uncomplicated skin care products that are rich in natural ingredients.
Over washing your face
It’s necessary to keep your skin clean and get rid of impurities however don’t overdo it. The oil glands in our skin protect it from drying, washing face too often can lead to dryness and invite other problems.
Treating acne aggressively
We get it no one likes acne or a sudden breakout and want to get rid of it in every possible way. Quick fixes like applying toothpaste will only make it worst, instead let it heal on its own. As a preventive measure use a face wash specially formulated to treat acne such as the Ponds Pimple Clear Face Wash .
