Is your skincare routine a nightmare, causing you more harm than good? Do you find that your skin is often irritated after a cleansing or mask, leaving behind frightening blemishes or redness? Halloween should be the only spooky part of October, and if your routine isn’t doing what it should, it’s time to find a solution to take the “scare” out of it. Let’s review a few essentials:
Ingredients: Just because a friend or coworker has raved about a product that worked great for them, doesn’t mean that same product will work for you. If you’ve had adverse reactions to a certain ingredient before, be sure to check labels when you purchase new items. You should also always test new products on a small area of skin before applying it fully. If you’re having a bad reaction but aren’t sure what is causing it, compare the label to other products you use to determine which ingredient may be at fault.
Frequency: Too much of anything is bad, and that is the case for skincare as well. Your skin’s natural oils are important, and scrubbing them away too frequently, or using an exfoliant too often can cause irritation and dryness. Pay attention to how your skin reacts throughout the week – you may want to reduce or increase the number of times you cleanse.
Order: The order in which you use products can absolutely affect your skin! For instance, you wouldn’t want to skip out on a moisturizer after doing a mask and cleanse- talk about dry skin! Ideally, you’ll want to use any masks or exfoliation products first, use a gentle cleanser after, and then apply a toner and moisturizer.
