When it comes to skincare, we are ready to cross every mountain—no, not in a literal sense, of course. But dedicating time, money, and effort during the daily chaos should be counted as crossing mountains. It begins with creating a proper regimen with carefully chosen products. Doing cleansing, exfoliation, toning, moisturization, fortification, damage control, you know the drill. Still, you rarely get desired results which make you wonder the more you do for your skin, the more it gives you the opposite—what if you need to do less?
Yes, there is such a thing as overdoing in skincare, and it is coming between you and your flawless skin, and we are totally willing to reveal what those avoidable things are.
5 Skincare Steps To Not Overdo
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead cells from the skin to reveal a smooth and soft texture. Overdoing it can end up causing irritations and sensitivity. The sign of over-exfoliating is overly shiny, excessive smoothness, reddened, and irritated surface right after exfoliation. You may also experience breakouts and bruises. It is not that you don’t need exfoliation, you do, but it must be done as required.
Our skin exfoliates itself every 20-25 days. As we age, this process slows down and leaves unshed dead cells on the surface. The unshed cells make your complexion look uneven and dull. Therefore it is vital to do exfoliation for optimal skin health and a better look.
Doing exfoliation once in 15-20 days is a recommended pattern. That said, use this Coco Rose Scrub that contains gentle and soothing ingredients to uncover the natural glow hidden beneath the dullness.
Cleansing is not only a personal hygiene step, but it also helps prevent the occurrence of several skin concerns. Your skin comes into contact with thousand of impurities throughout the day. If these impurities remain unwashed, they settle on the surface and cause breakouts, blackheads, irritations, itchiness, and you name it.
Over cleansing, however, can strip off natural oils, disrupt barrier function, imbalance pH levels, and leave your skin feeling tight, dry, and rough. The slippery, squeaky clean, and shiny look you get after cleansing several times is a sign that damage has already been done. From there, concerns like blemishes, dullness, and dark spots begin.
Doing cleansing twice a day should suffice. Once in the morning and then a second time before you go to bed. But ensure to choose a cleanser that suits your skin type. Try out Acnea3 Scar Wash Foaming Cleanser for acne-prone and oily skin. It promotes a fresh, radiant, and visibly clear look and maintains skin wellness.
The act of frequent face touching is the main cause of acne breakouts. Every time you touch your skin, the oils and impurities spread from one spot to another, clogging pores and leading to pimples. The same process repeats when you pop the pimples.
Popping the pimples may seem like a good idea when you have a wedding to attend, and the uninvited zit is ready before you are. However, popping the pimple is the box of disaster you won’t want to open. It increases the chance of inflammation, infection, scarring, and further incidences of breakouts. Tie your hand if you can, but don’t touch!
Paraben-free and lightweight, EGF Scar Serum is an excellent formula to reduce the look of old and new scars, giving you a more toned and refreshed complexion.
Over Sun Exposure
Sun’s natural light is the best filter there is for a selfie. Sure, the no-makeup look and bright sunlight give you a luminous glow. The long, cathartic walks on a beach is also an irresistible temptation we all want to experience during summertime. However, every time you step outside without sunscreen, UV rays enter skin cells and damage their health and growth.
Over sun exposure affects the skin’s natural restorative and regeneration ability. It makes your skin less elastic and supple, leaving it with wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and discoloration. Hence, the longer you remain in the sun, the greater the chances of UV damage.
Keep your skin feeling soothed and comforted after long hours of sun exposure with this 100% pure and natural Aloe Vera Gel. With its extraordinarily rich vitamin profile, aloe vera gel helps improve elasticity and firmness and delivers intense hydration to the skin’s deeper layers.
Lastly, let us pop the bubble by saying no one has a crystal clear and perfect complexion. Some imperfections will get noticed if you look at yourself with a magnifying glass.
The vanity lightings and two-way mirrors are meant to help you with doing makeup only. There is no need to get unduly concerned over a few blemishes and large pores that become more visible in bright light. Instead of picking, squeezing, and over-examining your skin, stick to your skincare regimen and try keeping it happy and hydrated.
