We know that skincare is essential. It’s empowering to take charge of yourself and your routine, but you need to maximize the time and effort you’re putting in.
Over the years, we’ve picked up some things that can back-track the progress of our community’s skincare efforts. They’re small mistakes, but with a bit of thought, easy to move past and transform for the better.
Secret Beauty Club has made a quick list of some skincare mistakes that you should avoid. We love being able to guide you through your various, equally fulfilling stages of beauty.
YOU’VE FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOUR NECK & STERNUM AREA
When applying your face wash, toner, or moisturizer, remember to think about the entire neck, face, and sternum area.
You want to make sure that you’ve covered the whole space so that no section is left without the nutrients it needs. As you apply your product, use gentle, circular upward movements. This works against the effects of gravity and stimulates blood flow as the product seeps into the skin.
YOU’RE NOT DRINKING WATER
As hydrating as the right moisturizer can be, you need to take in the right amount of liquid. Water is essential for skin health. It helps your body get rid of toxins and keeps you regular.
In addition, when you’re taking in enough water, your skin feels supple and soft. There are many benefits to taking in the required amount of water per day — it’s one of our major Secret Beauty Club’s skin secrets.
YOU DON’T WEAR SUNSCREEN ALL-YEAR-ROUND
Sunscreen is highly effective for preventing premature aging. You need to protect your skin from the sun. Check that your moisturizer has an SPF or purchase a separate sunscreen to add to your skincare regime. This you can add to your face, neck, and sternum area after applying your moisturizer.
YOU HAVEN’T GIVEN A PRODUCT A PROPER CHANCE
We know that you’re excited about your new skincare product and want to see the results right away.
However, it’s essential to give your product enough time to work correctly. As practical and penetrating as Secret Beauty Club products are, our Secret DMAE serum delivers the best results after 16 weeks of continued use.
You need to give your skincare products a fair chance before discarding them or moving onto new ones. We understanding that choosing and purchasing a skincare product is an investment.
YOU DON’T MOISTURIZE PROPERLY
Each step of your skincare routine is important, but the way you apply your moisturizer can make a massive difference to the outcome.
The first step is to ensure that your hands are clean and that you’re using your moisturizer in a cleaned area.
Then, if your skin feels hot or sweaty, rather re-wash it with your face wash or cleanser so that you’re letting the moisturizer in on the correct base.
YOU’RE NOT THINKING ABOUT YOUR HEALTH
If you’ve been following our Secret Beauty Club blog posts for some time, you’ll know that we are all for an integrated approach to beauty. It’s about a lot more than what you’re putting on your skin.
It’s about your mental state, what you are putting into your body (types and quantities of food, caffeine, alcohol, etc.), as well as your day-to-day lifestyle choices.
The kind of environment you work in, your stress levels, exposure to the sun, and whether or not you are exercising all play a part in your skincare. You can read more about preventing premature aging over here.
YOU TOUCH YOUR FACE TOO MUCH
When you apply moisturizer to your skin, you do so to a cleansed face with clean hands. If you go through your day and pick or scratch your face, you transfer dirt and germs from your hands to your skin. We would love to think that our hands are always clean, but every person and item we come into contact with has its ecosystem of bacteria.
Transferring this onto your face can further aggravate pimples, eczema, dry skin, or blemishes. As far as possible, try to avoid touching your face unless necessary, and with clean hands.
NOW — MAKE THE CHANGES
These are some common skincare mistakes that can easily be fixed. It’s good to be aware of skincare habits and avoid them if it’s for the best of your skin and health. As long as you’re aware of the actions, you can easily remove them or work towards eliminating them from your day-to-day.
