5 Mistakes You Shouldn’t Do To Your Skin in Your Beauty Ritual.

Skincare is undoubtedly an important topic for a lot of us. it is super therapeutic. Our skin deserves a ritual that should be followed everyday, morning and night. Regardless of age, gender or skin type, looking after your beauty is pretty important. But, what if you follow certain routine religiously, but you may not be glowing or may not your complexion look young or healthy? Are you following the steps properly? Actually, knowing the fact that certain things we should avoid in our beauty regime, most of the time we do them anyway. Well, let me talk about 5 beauty hacks we’re all guilty of.

Beauty, skincare routine, tips

5 Mistakes In Your Beauty Ritual:

1. Over-cleansing:

Ideally, one should wash one’s face twice a day, once in the morning and again at night. Washing more than that not only leads to dryness, or irritation, but makes it produce even more oil to compensate, causing new breakouts. Make sure that you are using a mild, chemical free cleanser when washing your face. You can opt for powder cleansers, the gentler alternatives to their liquid counterparts.

2. Over-exfoliating:

Exfoliating your face is good, but over-exfoliating is highly damaging as it may actually remove the protective barrier that your skin needs. It will make your face expose to environmental toxins and damaging sun rays. I always recommend people on dry or sensitive side exfoliate once a week, oily ones twice a week when combination or normal persons can exfoliate thrice a week. Make sure that you must use an exfoliator that’s gentle and having tiny granules, so that it will not be much abrasive.

3. Not Applying Toner:

Another important hack in your beauty regime is using toners. According to the dermatologists, a toner is a secret weapon to the healthy you. It helps to remove excess dirt, traces of oil and makeup, correct and balance the pH of your skin, and helps control acne. And it’s a proven fact that a moisturizer works more effectively after a toner. Only to make sure that a toner you will pick up might be free from alcohol to avoid dryness, itchiness and rashes.

4. Not Protecting your skin:

I have seen many of my friends don’t apply any sunscreen lotion, if they stay indoor or the day is cloudy or of winter. Do you know this way you are welcoming skin sagging, wrinkles, dark spots and even cancer? So, look for a sunscreen lotion with SPF 30 atleast, and PA+++. SPF protects from UVB that burns your face and PA protects against UVA rays that penetrate deeper into the skin and destroy collagen.

5. Neglecting important areas:

Here’s another essential beauty hack. You may follow your daily ritual strictly and properly. But, I have seen many of you to neglect continuing your entire regime down the neck. Do you know, your neck and décolletage show the obvious signs of ageing, even if your face looks flawless? Don’t skip the ears and the back of the neck either, as these parts also get damaged as your face do.

And, of course you shouldn’t make these mistakes:

  1. Never go to bed with your makeup on. Always double cleanse before bed.
  2. Make sure that you’re getting enough water and sleep.
  3. Don’t forget the proper order of your skincare routine. It matters a lot.
  4. Immediately follow your cleansing with toner and moisturizer to avoid the dehydration and tired look of your complexion.

So guys, what do you think about these beauty hacks? Do you have any other suggestions? Let us know.

    Yes I agree we should do every step of skin care in moderation. any thing in excess lead to destroy natural PH balance of skin and may cause more harmful effects than offering benefits.

    I confess that I do go slack on some of the points you've mentioned. An inconsistent skincare routine is useless and must be avoided. Sunscreen is a must and that I apply without fail.

    Overexfoliation is the worst thing one can do to their skin. It breaks out the skin even more. You have mentioned some really good pointers

    Protection is one aspect that is difficult for skin. Using SPF has its own pros and cons, and for that usage of it becomes difficult. Can you share some insights on that.

    I am someone who has never used toner. Always toner gives me pimples. But i think I should use them regularly to have the desired results.

    These routines are an opportunity to notice changes within ourselves. Skin naturally loses the ability to retain moisture as we age, and it's essential to take proper care of our skin. Informative post.
