You might be doing a myriad of things to keep your skin fresh and young-looking but are you really sure that all the things you are doing are good? We tend to follow fads that might actually turn out to be bad for our skin.
Don’t do the following wrong skin care habits:
1. Using chemical peelers
Chemical peelers help get rid of fine lines and dark age spots but this treatment is not for everyone. If you have very sensitive skin, the product might cause irritation and inflammation. Know your skin type first before using it.
2. Mixing and matching different types of products
Most skin care companies develop a line of skin care products with ingredients that will compliment the benefits of each other. Not all people like all the products in a skin care line so they might try to mix and match. But make sure the ingredients will not interact adversely with each other especially if you have sensitive skin.
3. Using citrus juice to get rid of age spots but staying out in the sun for a long time
Citrus juice helps get rid of age spots but you should know how to use it correctly. If you have the juice slathered all over your face, do not go out in the sun. The sun will immediately burn your skin.
4. Massaging your skin too much
While it is important to massage the skin care products on your skin, you wouldn’t want to be too aggressive in doing so. This might only damage the fragile collagen fibers in your dermis.
I would suggest using a product that can penetrate deep in your skin even without massaging it too much. Look for the ingredient Nano Lipobelle HEQ10. This has nano particles so the ingredients can penetrate deeper into the seven layers of the skin.
5. Washing the face more than 2 times a day
You don’t have to wash your face more than 2 times a day. Over-washing might prevent the skin from producing its own oil to keep the dermis moist. Stick to washing in the morning and before going to sleep.
If you need to freshen your face up in the middle of the day, just pat it with a tissue paper.
6. Using the wrong antioxidants
Antioxidants work well in fighting harmful free radicals. But some antioxidants are harmful to the over-all functions of the body. Caffeine is one example. It can constrict blood vessels in the thin-skinned areas of the body such as around the eyes. This might prevent blood and fluid from being distributed to the area around the eyes, thereby causing eye wrinkles.
