Despite their hardest efforts, many people are still following an unsuitable skincare regime without even realising it. It’s not just about cleansing, toning and moisturising- you need to make sure that you’re doing all of this with the right products.
Skin falls into several different categories- from ‘normal’, to combination, to dry- so you must make sure that the skin care products that you’re using are designed for your specific skin type.
There are a number of tell-tale signs that could point to your skin care regime being unsuitable, and luckily, if you make the effort to switch to more suitable products quickly, it’s unlikely that you will have caused any irreversible long-term damage.
If your skin feels dry and tight after cleansing, your cleanser may be far too harsh for your skin. Thorough cleansing isn’t supposed to make your skin feel this way. It should feel fresh and revitalised- rather than rough and dehydrated.
If you suffer from excessive oiliness after moisturising, it could be that the moisturiser which you are using is too heavy for your skin. Switching to a lighter moisturiser, such as Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion, can still effectively hydrate skin without being greasy.
If you are regularly greeted by spots and blemishes, the products which you’re using could be blocking your pores- so take a look at your entire skin care regime and see if you can determine where the problem may be.
Give your skin care regime a health-check and make sure that your skin is getting the best care possible.
