This article is not going to be me telling you to drink water. This is not even going to enter the conversation. Today. We’re going to be talking about how to take care of your skin and 8 biggest skincare mistakes you need to avoid in 2020. You already know how to make it look better but there’s a lot of things, some underground tips that you don’t know until you become aware of them today.
I want to focus on the art of skincare, transforming your skin using products you already own but using them smarter, better and getting results that you want.
Stop Using Cotton Pads
First things, first-ever since I was taught about how to take care of my skin. I’ve seen people recommending to put toner onto a cotton pad and gently wipe it across your face. I think that this is a no-go. I have completely stopped using cotton pads, a lot of women like it as a second cleansing system and they look at all, the dirt that comes off after you wash your face. But when we learn how to properly cleanse our skin you don’t need to use your toner as a second method of removing makeup and things like that.
What I want you to try instead is pouring the toner directly into your hand and then picking it up with the palms of your hands and your fingertips, pressing it gently over your skin using this at full force is going to allow that toner to go deep into the skin without compromise. You’re getting all of the benefits and this is going to give your skin an environment to glow a lot of Turner’s come in spray form as well. So this can be an easier option.
Setting yourself up for success is key in skincare you can buy, all the fancy products you want, but if you’re not using them correctly, you’re not going to get a good result, check out the same three areas you always go to cleanse your skin, it leaves a lot to be desired in the areas that aren’t getting as much love.
I always touch the same area of my forehead. The same area of my cheeks and I love muscle memory but not when it comes to Cleansing my skin because this unconscious cleansing is going to leave you with areas of the skin that are unclenched and still dirty.
Just take a look at your skin in micro areas like the jawline and the cheeks behind the ears, different areas where you would normally neglect to start paying extra attention to them and watch your skin get clear fast.
Sleep Hygiene: You Should Always Wash Your Face Before Bed
One of the biggest deciding factors on the quality of your skin is going to be the hygiene of your bed. A lot of people don’t think about it.
But you’re sleeping on pillow and if you haven’t been cleansing or washing your sheets, then you’re going to notice that your skin can’t be clear because you’re sleeping on bacteria for like eight hours a night. And also don’t forget to clean off your phone.
This is another area of life. That’s going to contribute to the quality of your skin whether you realize it or not just take some rubbing alcohol and clean it off once a week. It’s the least we can do to keep our skin acne free
Fast Fix: Cleaning Pimple Using A Spot Treatment
If you ever get a pimple and you don’t want to pop it because you have any level of resistance. but I know that it causes scarring. So what I’ve done is switched up my routine to using a spot treatment.
but it’s an effective way of clearing a pimple overnight and taking all of the hydration out of the pimple making it lay flat and be a lot easier to cover, you’ll be left with a little piece of dry skin. And on the third day, it’ll be a lot more reasonable looking, our recommendation is on days like this when you have a People, make yourself look fresh Again by using a little bit of concealer in the areas where you have redness underneath the eyes to cover up dark circles.
Of course on the pimple itself because less makeup looks so much better and so much fresher. When you have a breakout
Best ways of using things not here owing to any products. When you hero a product to use like persuasion and lighting and all the things to kind of position it as a solution or a saviour.
That’s why it’s called a hero, but the thing is this next tip is all about the ingredient itself not about any like a particular product, pick what works for you based on budget and what’s reasonable to add to your routine.
It’s essentially using the cleanser on your skin without any barrier of water. What you do? is take your cleanser to apply to the skin and take about 30 seconds, in this process to massage it into the skin. You’re going to notice that this feels a little bit tacky, a little bit different because we’re so used to using water with cleansers.
But as you notice it starts to go super tacky and turn a little bit white. That’s when it’s time to activate the cleanser. Now not only does this help you pay more attention to your cleansing process, which is a huge part of clearing up your skin, but it also lifts kind of like removing glue off of your face.
Most Looked we often keep our products and really dirty environments and we just keep them there in don’t think about the fact that bacteria are often transferred from our hands to our face and clearing up your skin can sometimes be the simple things like just being aware of what you’re touching.
So be aware of your environment and give your products a cleanse from time to time. It does make a difference.
Dry Skin Hack
This is a two in one and I want to make a point about something that I think is a common misconception in skincare, a lot of people talk about using exfoliators as a vessel. Solution for dry skin.
Two things if you have actual dry flaky skin depending on the microbeads in the exfoliator. It’s a risky bet to assume that they will Glide Across the Skin and crosshatch in a way that will go up and under and lift that dead skin often when we use an exfoliator on dry skin. That’s flaking.
It doesn’t take it all off and we still left with the same problem, use Scotch tape for this. This will work every single time. It will remove the dead skin. So where does this leave the physical exfoliators? using this twice a week is going to help anything that you layer on top after exfoliation, go much deeper into the skin and they will encourage cell turnover, which will help your skin rejuvenate in the freshest way.
