5 Surprisingly Damaging Skincare Habits You Didn't Know About (And How to Break Them)

Hello gorgeous people! Today, let's uncover some common yet harmful skincare habits that might not take the attention often but prove to be very harmful in a long run. These habits may seem harmless at first glance, but they can be dangerous too. In this blog we’ll get you covered with some healthy alternatives to help you break free from these damaging practices. Stay tuned!

Using Dirty Makeup Brushes:

You may not realize it, but your makeup brushes can accumulate dirt, oil, and bacteria over time. Applying makeup with dirty brushes transfers these impurities onto your skin, clogging pores and leading to breakouts and infections.

Alternative: Clean your makeup brushes regularly. Use a mild shampoo or brush cleanser to gently wash away the buildup of product and bacteria. Aim to clean them at least once a week to keep your brushes and your skin squeaky clean.

Neglecting the Neck During Skincare:
While you care for your face, don't forget about your neck. Neglecting these areas can result in uneven skin tone, and a noticeable difference between your face and neck which is funny, right?

Alternative: Extend your skincare routine beyond your face. Apply moisturizer, sunscreen, and any treatments you use to your neck as well. Remember to massage in an upward motion to promote circulation and firmness.

Overloading on Products:

We all want to achieve the best results possible, but using too many skincare products at once can overwhelm your skin. Layering multiple products without allowing each one to properly absorb can lead to irritation, redness, and even allergic reactions. Remember guys, less is more!

Alternative: Simplify your skincare routine. Stick to a few essential products that target your specific concerns. This way, your skin can better absorb and benefit from each product without feeling layered up. You can start with Deyga’s Rose Water Toner & Tinted SPF as your minimal daytime skincare essentials. A simple aloe vera gel would suffice all the needs your skin desires at night time too.

Excessive Hot Showers:

Steaming hot showers may feel relaxing, but they can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry, tight, and prone to irritation. Prolonged exposure to hot water can compromise your skin's protective barrier, leading to moisture loss and increased sensitivity.

Alternative: Opt for lukewarm showers and keep them short. This helps maintain your skin's natural moisture and prevents it from becoming excessively dry. After showering, pat your skin dry gently and apply a moisturizer to lock in hydration.

Ignoring the Expiry Dates:

Skincare products, just like food, have expiry dates. Using expired products can lead to ineffective results or even skin reactions. Over time, active ingredients may degrade, and preservatives lose their efficacy, making the product less effective or potentially harmful.

Alternative: Check the expiration dates of your skincare products regularly. If a product has expired, it's time to bid it farewell and replace it with a fresh one. This ensures that you're getting the most out of your products and protecting your skin from any potential harm.

By avoiding these lesser-known damaging habits and adopting healthier alternatives, you'll pave the way for healthier, happier skin. Remember, skincare is all about finding a balance and treating your skin with care. Embrace these changes, and watch your skin glow with vitality and radiance!

Stay informed, stay radiant, and take care of your skin like never before!
