Many women will have a beauty regime that they follow every day to make sure that they keep their skin soft, smooth and looking beautiful. But what if you have a regime that you are doing but you don’t get the results you’re looking for? There is a great possibility that even though you are practicing good habits to maintain your skin, you are also doing somethings wrong.
Here are some mistakes that women make that cause them to have problems with their skin:
Mistake #1: You pile on the products
We’ve all done it—you hear rave reviews about a new treatment and immediately think, Omigod, I need that! Before you know it, your beauty arsenal consists of toners, moisturizers, scrubs, retinols, cleansers, creams, and more. Not only is applying all of these products excessive and time-consuming, but you run the risk of irritating your skin. According to Luftman, your daily skincare routine should really cap off at three to four products. “You only need a cleanser, daily sunscreen, and a treatment-oriented product—like a moisturizer, acne treatment, or anti-aging product,” Luftman says.
If you’re constantly tempted by a new mask or cream that you bought, keep it out of sight so you only use it occasionally. And nix harsh scrubs and toners from your daily routine—they should only be used two to three times per week, Luftman says.
