Have you ever thought why the same tips about skin care keep repeating in various articles in all kinds of magazines? The reason is not in the fact that editors lack fantasy but in the fact that most readers simply don’t follow the simple advice that’s offered. Perhaps, it’s time to stop wasting money on expensive cosmetics that promise miracles and just start from the basics?
We at Bright Side don’t want to overestimate the power of affecting your life but still, we will try to protect you from 10 of the most widespread mistakes when it comes to taking care of the face. Don’t miss our bonus about the benefits of a banana peel at the end!
1. You change your cosmetics too often.
It is not easy to resist the purchase of another face cream or serum when magazines keep showing us endless compilations of the best beauty products of the season, while cosmetic stores keep announcing discounts and sales. However, it’s still worth doing your best to resist it, especially if you already have several items at home that suit you completely.
Perhaps, you are afraid that your skin could adjust to the old cosmetics and that’s why you keep changing cosmetic items in order to get a better effect? It’s all in vain because your skin doesn’t adjust to skincare products, while a newly bought cream can become the reason for an allergic reaction.
2. You use a facial scrub on a daily basis.
Our skin regenerates without any “extra” help; however, we still keep using scrubs in order to speed up this process. Yes, scrubs can help your skin peel faster, as well as cleanse your skin but if you do it on a daily basis, you risk depriving your skin of its protective layer.
Generally speaking, scrubs and rough brushes are not the best solutions for cleansing the face. We recommend replacing them with light chemical peelings. And we don’t mean expensive procedures at beauty salons. Nowadays, there are many items for home use that can softly and painlessly remove dead skin cells. For example, almond peeling can be done at home and even in summer without the risk of pigmentation.
