Whether you’re a man or a woman, you’ll most likely care about how you look. It used to be an old tradition that only women or models were the one to take care of their skin, but now no more. Everyone wants to look good, and perhaps you’re one of them as well. But believe it or not, taking care of your skin is not as easy as it sounds, as you can make some mistakes.
In this article, we’re going to list what those mistakes are, and hopefully, by reading this article, you can avoid making those mistakes to your skin.
Not Washing Your Face
The first mistake one can make is that they didn’t wash their face, especially after going out to work or events. When you don’t wash your face, what’s going to happen is that dirt, oil, and everything will stay in your face and clogs your pore.
The results of this are that your face will get very dirty which will lead to acne appearing on your face, so make sure that you cleanse your face at least twice a day, using the cleanser that suits your skin.
Tip: If you wear makeup, consider using the double cleansing technique, as this will deeply cleanse your face and remove all the make-up and dirt that’s been on your face.
Using The Wrong Type of Mask
We all know that using facial mask will help on improving your skin, but did you know that using the wrong type of facial mask can damage your skin? Although all of the facial masks are great, they need to be used on the right skin.
A wash-off mask is perfect for oily-combination skin, while clay mask is for those who have oily skin. Meanwhile, gel-mask is perfect for those who have dry skin. Using clay mask on the dry skin might cause it to strip away your oils, causing your face to itch and irritate.
Not Using Sunscreen
We have to stress this mistake as many people seem to underestimate the importance of using sunscreen, especially if you’re planning to go to the beach. Neglecting to apply the sunscreen on your face might lead to freckles, early aging, sunburn and many more so make sure you use it and re-apply every two hours if you’re going to be exposed to the sun.
In case of sunburn, consider using aloe vera gel on the part that got burnt, this will soothe the pain.
