With endless information available online, it's difficult to filter what's true and what isn't. When it comes to skin, you need to take utmost care.
These common skincare mistakes will help you identify exactly what habits you should and shouldn't follow in your daily routine.
1. Skipping SPF
Regardless if it's a sunny day or a rainy one spent indoors, as long as it is day time, applying sunscreen
2. Skipping Patch Test
Before using new products or those after a prolonged period of time, always test the waters by applying on your neck or wrist for irritation.
3. No Moisturiser For Oily Skin
Give oily skin the hydration it needs and account for its excess sebum with a suitable moisturiser that doesn't feel greasy.
4. Blind Faith In Products
Your bestie's favourite balm, a latest trend or much-talked about serum cannot be trusted blindly unless tested and suited for your skin.
5. Overdoing Your Routine
Aggressively applying products and overcrowding your routine with far too many bottles won't yield results and will only irritate your skin further.
6. Know When To Seek Help
Home remedies and over-the-counter products may not work for all. So if a skin problem persists for months, seek professional help.
