Even if it should not be done too often so as not to weaken the skin, exfoliations are fundamental to eliminate dead cells and regenerate the skin.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. It is responsible for protecting the body from all external agents such as pollution, microorganisms or sunlight, among others.
Since ancient times, skin care has been essential in the life of every person. Indeed, the skin tends to become more fragile and develop several anti-aesthetic conditions. Notably because of its exposure to various environmental factors.
However, in the search for perfect skin, we often forget certain indispensable things.
Are you sure that you are taking sufficient care of your skin?
In this article, we will share with you 7 mistakes we make in our skin beauty programs.
Take hot showers
We tend to shower with hot water for comfort. This is especially the case when it is cold and when we are suffering from an illness.
It is important to know that even if hot showers are very relaxing, they are aggressive for the skin. Indeed, they reduce its natural oils and cause dryness and itching.
The consequences on the skin are sometimes worse, especially if it uses aggressive chemical soaps that end up causing desquamation.
Do not remove make-up
You should never forget to remove your make-up in the evening before going to sleep.
During the night, chemicals can do a lot of harm to the skin because they prevent cells from oxygenating to repair themselves.
Every day before going to bed, it is very important to remove your make-up and refresh the skin with a tonic lotion.
Excessive tanning is detrimental to the skin care.
Tanned skin can be beautiful, but too much exposure to the sun or in UV cabins damages the skin and prevents it from regenerating important cells.
The consequences of excessive tanning are reflected in skin alterations, premature aging and in the worst cases, skin cancer.
Wiping too hard when getting out of the shower
Some people have the bad habit of drying themselves too strongly, after getting out of the shower.
This action is not recommended because it can influence the deterioration of natural oils and cause irritation and dryness.
The best way to do this is with a soft towel and with small gentle strokes without stretching the skin.
Do not exfoliate
Exfoliation is a treatment that should not be done all the time but it should not be forgotten either.
Many people lack time or are too tired after work and do not take the time to exfoliate their skin and give it the care it needs to regenerate.
Yet, this treatment is essential because it is the most effective way to remove dead cells that accumulate as a result of sun exposure and pollution.
Piercing acne pimples
Acne pimples are anti-aesthetic and they often appear on the face but also on the body.
For many of us, it is a temptation to pierce them. It seems to be the fastest solution to get rid of them.
In reality, piercing these pimples irritates the skin. In addition, it leaves scars that can be difficult to remove.
Touching your face too much is not good.
This action, which may be unintentional, brings dust, germs and other agents to our face. These can also clog pores causing acne or blackheads.
It is therefore important to always have clean hands to prevent microorganisms and dirt from reaching the face.
For example, it is essential to clean your cell phone frequently, because it grazes your face when you answer calls, and even if you can’t see it with the naked eye, it is contaminated with bacteria.
