Skin Myths Busted: Four Daily Care Don’ts You’re Going To Want To Know About For Healthy, Happy Skin
You’ve heard about skincare must-dos, but what about the must-don’ts?
These days there’s a lot of well-meaning advice making the rounds in beauty land, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t report that not all of what you hear is rooted in actual skincare science.
In order to help you avoid a complexion compromising mistake, here are a few skincare don’ts we’d like to impart:
Skin Care Don’t #1: Exfoliation Overkill
Could you be overdoing it on exfoliation? A common mistake even the most seasoned skincare fanatics sometimes make is using too many abrasive and aggressive acid-based products. Although exfoliation has many benefits for smoothing the skin and keeping cellular turnover on track, too much can have the opposite effect, causing imbalance, irritation, dullness, and excess dryness. For best results, we recommend focusing on gentle exfoliants and using them in moderation only.
Skin Care Don’t #2: Repurposing Other Household Products as Skincare
Beware of what you see on TikTok. In recent years, we’ve seen some skincare “hacks” on social media ranging from troubleshooting zits with toothpaste to washing your face with dandruff shampoo. Unfortunately, many of these DIY trends involve exposing the skin to ingredients and formulas that aren’t actually meant for the skin. As tempting as those quick-fixes may be, the potential long-term effects simply aren’t worth it. Our advice? Avoid any advice that isn’t from a skincare professional and just keep scrolling.
Skin Care Don’t #3: Neglecting Skin Care Below The Neck
By now, most of us know that the skin is your largest organ, covering the entire body. Yet for some reason, a similarly large number of us are guilty of only practicing good skincare habits for the face. In order to really enjoy glowing skin for a lifetime, you’re going to want to show the rest of your body some love as well. At bare minimum, allover care should include cleansing and exfoliation, as well as a bit of moisture to keep your epidermis healthy and functioning optimally.
Skin Care Don’t #4: Thinking More = More
Contrary to what many brands might have you believe, you don’t need twenty different steps in your routine to achieve beautiful skin. In fact, using too many products, or changing up the protocol too often, can end up stressing the skin and canceling out any positive effects. Instead, a better approach is to choose just a few high quality products and use them consistently. Your skin, and your budget will thank you!
