5 Things You Should Never Do To Your Skin

You’re going to be living in your skin for a long time, so if there’s one thing you really should do, it’s treat it with the respect and TLC it deserves! Skin is amazing, and considering it’s your body’s largest organ – it makes up 15% of your body weight – looking after it is pretty important.we’re here to tell you why these five things are some of the worst things you can do to your skin. 

 

Over-Exfoliating

Exfoliating is amazing for your skin; it removes dead skin cells that clog your pores and lead to blackheads and pimples! But there is such a thing as over-exfoliating – done too vigorously, you can end up scratching the surface of your skin’s protective barrier, leaving it open to infection and exposure to environmental toxins.

Popping, Picking, and Rubbing

Our skin does such an amazing job of protecting us, that sometimes we forget how fragile it is and how careful we need to be with it. We all know we shouldn’t pick at our skin, but the truth is when we get a giant zit, most of us just can’t help squeezing it.Popping a cyst is even worse, and should never be done.

Rubbing your eyes too hard, either when you’re taking off your makeup or just because you’re tired, will also tug at the delicate skin

Not Protecting Your Skin

Look for a facial SPF that has minimum factor 30 SPF, and a UVA rating of 4-star or higher (or PA++++). The SPF protects against UVB rays that burn the skin, while UVA (or PA) protects against UVA rays that penetrate deeper into the skin and destroy collagen – both are essential.

Forgetting About Your Neck and Eyes

So you know how to take care of your face, but what people so often neglect is their eye cream and continuing their routine down their neck. Crow’s feet and a neck are some of the most obvious signs of aging, so even if your face is looking flawless, if you’ve forgotten about your neck, it will be a serious giveaway of your age.

Using the Same Products Forever

You may have found a moisturizer that is THE DREAM, but sadly, it’s a love affair that can’t last forever. Eventually, your skin will change and adapt to any active ingredients in your product, so that over time, they become less effective . For winter, hydration is vital, while for summer, you may need to switch up your heavy winter creams for something more lightweight, like a gel moisturizer,
