5 common mistakes we make

Sometimes we want immediate results when we start taking care of our skin, but it is a slow process and requires a lot of dedication . Although we believe that we take the necessary care to have healthy skin, the truth is that sometimes we make certain mistakes.

Here are some examples that dermatologists have given us and that they recommend not doing.

  • pinching pimples
    While it’s tempting, avoid pinching your pimples. Dermatologists claim that this is too harmful for your skin, especially the spots that have not yet surfaced. Squeezing can push bacteria deeper causing more damage than it is.
  • Change care routines frequently.
    As we said above, the desire for immediate results can lead us to change products thinking that the ones we used previously do not work. Another thing would be that you like to try new products but this is not ideal for your skin. Most of the ingredients in creams take 4-6 weeks to make noticeable changes, so be patient and wait.
  • Forgetting to put on sunscreen.
    Although we have told you in almost every article, we cannot emphasize the importance of the use of sun filters. But not only on the face is where you should apply sunscreen, the lips, arms, hands, feet and legs are also important. The damage is done anywhere on the body that is exposed to the sun.
  • Hot water
    Although it is relaxing to take a shower at the end of the day with hot water, the reality is that you are causing damage to your skin. Hot water removes natural oils, in addition to altering surface lipids and proteins. This produces inflamed skin. You can reduce the time in the shower or shower with lukewarm water.
  • Excessive exfoliation
    Over Exfoliation is one of the reasons why acne appears. Using exfoliating cleansers or acidic brushes and creams several times a day is too much. Ideally, exfoliate once or twice a week unless your dermatologist tells you otherwise.

If you make any of these mistakes, then stop it! Instead of helping your skin, they are hurting it even more. It is important to clarify all your doubts with your dermatologist to avoid more damage than you may already have.
