Are you making these 3 skincare mistakes?
These common 3 skincare mistakes that can wreak havoc on your skin, when all you are trying to do is care for it!I Are you making any of these?
1. Product hopping Skincare isn't a sprint, it’s a marathon. It takes time to build results. People are eager to see results that they don’t give the products the time they need to work.
Most ingredients work underground in the skin, e.g; Vitamins C has the ability to stimulate collagen production, as does Vitamin A, yet it takes 12 weeks to build this process.
Constantly switching products will never yield results!
2. Over cleansing oily skin Attempting to remove excess oil by over cleansing or using harsh cleansers containing Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or alcohol will only strip the natural protective lipids we need to keep our skin barrier protected from the environment, pollution and bacteria, thus leading to inflammation and dehydration.
When the skin is dried out by over cleansing, the sebaceous glands that produce your skin's natural oil (sebum), stimulates more oil, leaving you with a cycle where you are causing your skin to be more sensitive whilst increasing further oil production. A gentle cleanser like One Skin pH Wash used twice daily is sufficient to remove makeup and daily grime yet keeping your skin balanced.
3. Over exfoliating your skin Over exfoliating your skin with both chemical (acid based) and physical (granular based) products can lead to a weakened epidermis. Over exfoliation can lead to weakened skin structure, where you are producing thinner, weaker cells as cell production cannot keep up with the demands of the product.
Every time you exfoliate a reaction occurs within the skin to signal new cell production. If these signals are content by over exfoliating the new cells have not have the time they need to form and take on necessary nutrition within its journey to the epidermis (surface)
The result being dull, grey complexion and often leads to redness, inflammation, dehydration and even a breakout. Once or twice a week is sufficient for most skin type - why not try One Skin Multitude Peel weekly multi-acid treatment, that contains a powerhouse of effective acids. Pyruvic Acid effectively hydrates whilst Glycolic Acid, which has the smallest molecular size, sinks in deep to brighten, stimulate collagen growth and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, in turn Lactic Acid, re-texturises as it hydrates adding clarity to the results. Our blend of acids is kind yet effective, working together in synergy to ensure highest results without sensitivity. We'd love to know what you think of it!
