5 Skincare Mistakes You Need To Stop Right Now

We all want to look our best, but we don't always know how. Skincare is a complicated and confusing topic as it changes as you age. You can have the most expensive skincare routine in the world, but if you're making one of these common mistakes, you could end up doing more harm than good. Here are some prevalent skincare mistakes that most of us are guilty of.

Over-Exfoliating

Exfoliation is an important part of any skincare routine, as it removes dead cells from the surface of the skin, revealing smoother and glowing skin underneath. But overdoing it can be counterproductive — especially if you're using physical exfoliants like microbeads or brushes that can irritate sensitive skin or cause redness, dryness and irritation. If you have sensitive skin, opt for other type of exfoliants such as Oh Hello Bae Acne Eraser Blemish Treatment. These types of products contain fruit enzymes that dissolve dead skin cells without irritating the surface of your skin. They are gentler than physical exfoliators, which means they won't cause as much damage when used incorrectly.

 

Empowering Your Skin with the Right Cleanser

Cleansing is the foundation of any skincare routine, serving as the first step to remove impurities and prepare your skin for subsequent products. However, using the wrong type of cleanser can lead to a host of issues, ranging from dryness and irritation to breakouts and compromised skin barrier. For instance, most of us are fond of bubbly foams and squeaky-clean textures but some of these foam cleansers strips away natural oils and use harsh ingredients. Gel Cleansers like Holy Grail Gelly Cleanser is a non-foaming and gentle cleanser that promises not to strip away any of your natural oils!

 

 

Skipping Sunscreen: A Non-Negotiable Step

Neglecting sunscreen is a cardinal sin in skincare. Sun exposure is a primary contributor to premature aging and skin damage. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily, even on cloudy days or indoors. This simple step can prevent wrinkles, dark spots, and protect your skin from harmful UV rays.


Layering Products Incorrectly: Order Matters

The order in which you apply skincare products matters. Applying products in the wrong sequence can reduce their effectiveness. As a general rule, start with the lightest consistency and move to heavier textures. For example, after cleansing with Holy Grail Gelly Cleanser, pat your face with Holy Grail Mist Toner then apply serums like Glow Gorgeous Vitamin C or Acne Eraser Blemish Treatment before creams such as Holy Grail Sake Cloud Cream to ensure that each product is absorbed properly.

 

Staying Hydrated: Internal Skincare Matters Equally

While external skincare is crucial, don't forget the importance of internal hydration. Drinking an adequate amount of water helps keep your skin plump and radiant. Aim for at least eight glasses a day to support overall skin health.

Achieving healthy and radiant skin involves more than a collection of skincare products. It requires a mindful approach, understanding your skin's unique needs, and avoiding common pitfalls. By steering clear of these skincare mistakes, you'll be on your way to a clearer, healthier complexion that reflects the care you invest in it. Remember, consistency is key, and patience is a virtue on the journey to beautiful, radiant skin. Get your Oh Hello Bae Acne Eraser Blemish Treatment today and be your most confident self than ever!
