In the rush of everyday life, we make many mistakes when taking care of our skin and without knowing it, these can result in dull, wrinkly skin. To that end, here are some skincare screw-ups we need to avoid ASAP.
Sleeping with makeup on. This is one of those mistakes that can happen after a long day—or just become a bad habit we end up adopting out of convenience, since removing makeup can often be a real chore. However, leaving makeup on clogs pores and leads to bad buildup that in turn can lead to acne breakouts and other issues.
Pimple-popping. As much as we hate those blemishes and think we’re taking matters into our own hands with a good squeeze, dermatologists constantly advise not to do this. Basically, popping those pimples just spreads the infection and can worsen your problems with acne, not to mention leave unsightly acne scars.
Changing products too often. This hurts us in a couple of ways. First, products need time to work, and making quick switches out of impatience may deprive us of the results we wanted—and would have gotten—if we had waited a bit more. In addition, leaping before you look as you make these abrupt changes can result in allergic skin reactions to ingredients, causing redness and acne breakouts.
Non-professional facial cleansing. While there are tons of recipes online for DIY (do it yourself) facial masks and more, sometimes these DIY treatments can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Morever, an experienced dermatologist will set up cleaning according to your skin type and concerns, using more powerful ingredients that really get in there, as opposed to a promised quick solution you get over the counter. Pore strips are a good example of these: they just don’t work. To really get at blackheads, for example, a dermatologist is by far your best bet. They have the talent, the tools and the know-how to band blackheads with specialized treatments.
