There are habits that help with your facial skin improvement and then there are habits that are ruining it. Some of the causes of your skin problems are obvious but some are not that clear.
How to improve facial skin?
What if you have been doing all things right, but nothing seems to work? Is it due to the habits you indulge in unknowingly? Let’s take a look at your bad habits so that you can get rid of them and get flawless looks!
Using cosmetics without understanding your skin
Some products may look good on your friends, that doesn’t mean those will suit your skin type. The product doesn’t have to be bad, it’s just that it doesn’t suit you. So instead of relying on advertisements or what your friends are using, understand your own skin first, and then buy facial products accordingly.
As hard it is to resist popping pimples, it is one of the worst sins to do. Not only do these leave ugly spots behind, but also expose your skin to a trail of other skin issues. If you’re prone to acne, you should use products that fight the oil in your skin. You can also use natural products to slow down the growth of pimples and get rid of marks. But, all in all, do not touch or pop your pimples at any cost.
Not washing your face
Another bad habit would be to skip washing your face twice a day. All the dust and pollution can collect on your skin and can lead to various skin issues such as acne, spots, etc. Thus, you need to wash your face at least twice a day, with a sulfate-free face wash. Also, wash your face before you apply makeup to get rid of all the dirt particles and to open your clogged pores.
Using soap to wash your face
Our skin is sensitive to alkaline and acidic chemicals, so you should never wash your face with your regular soap. Instead, opt for a face wash or a cleanser that suits your skin type.
Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Wash will help your skin much more than any soap can. This is a gentle, yet effective cleanser that will remove dead skin cells from the skin and cleanse your skin.
Not moisturizing enough
Often we think that moisturizing the skin is important in winters only. Your skin needs moisture during summers too. If you feel that moisturizer feels too heavy on your skin during summers as it is already too hot and sweaty, then choose one with a lighter consistency or you could also choose a face mist. Whenever you feel like freshening up, just spray it once and you’re good to go!
Not moisturizing your neck
It’s great if you moisturize your face regularly, but if you’re forgetting your neck, uh-oh! Our neck is one of the areas that show the earliest signs of aging and if not moisturized and taken care of properly, you will end up looking older than you actually are. So the next time you apply sunscreen and moisturizer to your face, do not forget about your neck. Also, the area around your eyes is also very sensitive, so use a good eye cream before bedtime for your skin to heal.
Being on your phone all the time
Let’s face it, where we go, our cell phone goes, even to the washroom! You should also know that our cell phones are the biggest germ carriers and can even trap oil in the pores. Too much talking on the phone can lead to a breakout so either you should use your earphones, or you should regularly wipe your phone with a saline solution.
Skipping sunscreen when there’s no sun
The benefits of sunscreen are definitely obvious and whoever said that you could skip applying sunscreen when there’s no sun, doesn’t know about skincare. It is important that no matter what season it is, start applying Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream SPF 50, 365 days, straight up. It will help in protecting the skin from the sun and providing sheer coverage for slight discolorations like hyperpigmentation and redness. Now, do not forget about your neck here as well. Along with your face, apply it to your neck, hands, and all other body parts that are usually exposed to the sunlight.
Not getting enough Vitamin D
We all know the dangers of the sun, but it is also important for our skin to get its daily dose of vitamin D. Step out early in the morning or late in the afternoon and soak in the sun for at least ten minutes. It helps enhance radiance and boost collagen production. This also helps strengthen bones. But before you do so, make sure that you apply sunscreen and do not step out when the sun is harsh as that would alleviate your skin issues.
Lazy to get a haircut
If you are not getting a regular haircut, then you might get a couple (or a lot) of split ends. So, get your hair trimmed at least once in a month to avoid the dull and irregular look. Also, get a haircut in 3-4 months for the healthy growth of your hair.
Thus, get rid of all these bad habits and nothing will come in your way of looking gorgeous, every day!
