Have you often maintained and treated facial skin and the end up is still spotty? Well, maybe something is wrong when you apply skincare! Let's take a look at 7 skincare mistakes that make your face even more dull and spotty.
1. Too much use of skincare and not based on your skin type
Many of you think that applying too much skincare will make your face glow more, well that is not true! It actually formulates another problem on your skin. For example, make your face spotty. Is it even more annoying if you intend to try skincare for better skin, but it turns your skin to breakouts? So, first, make sure your skin type and wear it appropriately.
2. Not giving products enough time to work
This problem is almost the same as the one above. Just because on the first day applying the products you do not feel satisfied, it does not mean that the products are bad for you. Then, you finally decide to try another product with a different formula, too? That is very unwise. Be careful girls! This habit can make you spotty, you know.
We all want instant results but the fact is, products need time to deliver results. 28 to 56 days (or four to eight weeks) is a good duration to conclude if a product is working for you. The older you are, the longer it may need for results to show as cell metabolism and turnover slows down. So, be patient.
3. Overwashing your face
Fun Fact, washing your face too often causes excess oil production in the area of your face, you know! So, simply wash your face twice a day, morning and evening. Especially if you only have activities in the room, no makeup, and don't sweat too much. Just rinse your face with warm water at night. And voila, you're one step further from the dangers of acne!
4. Use sunscreen only when it is hot
Sunscreen is a daily basis for your face skin. Just because the weather is cloudy outside, you neglect to use sunscreen when outdoors.
Well, things like this should be avoided. Because no matter the weather, morning or afternoon we really have to use sunscreen. Even in a country with four seasons, beauty doctors also recommend that you keep using sunscreen in winter. Girls should know that!
5. Skipping exfoliation
Exfoliation is a skincare treatment that has the function of removing dead skin cells. The routine exfoliation process can have a different effect on the face because the dead skin cells that are removed will be replaced with new skin cells. So if you skip this one process, our acne scars will stay on our facial skin even longer.
