Are You Making These 5 Skincare Mistakes?

Are You Making These 5 Skincare Mistakes?

6th February 2019

We’re all going to age but how you treat your skin over the years determines how quickly you will actually look your age.

Your skin is your largest organ and while external factors do have an effect on your skin, your lifestyle choices make a difference too.

It’s quite easy to make mistakes that can speed up the skin’s ageing process but the sooner you can turn things around, the more youthful your skin will appear.

Common Skincare Mistakes To Avoid

5 Common Skincare Mistakes To Avoid

Being Lazy With Sunscreen. Failing to wear sunscreen on a daily basis can have a dramatic, long-term effect on your skin. UV damage is one of the leading causes of some of the most common signs of ageing but applying sunscreen before you step outside can slow down the ageing process. If your skin is already showing signs of sun damage, find out more about scheduling a laser skin treatment at MIRA Clinic Perth.

Forgetting That Your Skin Is Delicate. Whether it’s rubbing your face after a shower or pulling the skin around your eyes when you’re applying makeup, your skin gets a workout every single day. Unfortunately, when you don’t treat your skin gently, lines and wrinkles appear a lot quicker. Make a point of being gentler with the skin on your face if you want to maintain a younger appearance for longer.

Using The Wrong Products. Products that contain harsh chemicals can dry your skin out and cause premature ageing. Your skin loses moisture every day, so do what you can to give it the extra moisture it needs by avowing cleansers that contain harsh ingredients. Ask your clinician for some product recommendations.

Over-Exfoliating. When you over-exfoliate your skin, it causes inflammation and irritation. To counteract these effects, the skin tends to build up a thick layer of cells that can lead to premature ageing. Pick your exfoliation products carefully and rethink your schedule. Most people only need to exfoliate once or twice a week, not every day. Microdermabrasion and carbon laser facials are other exfoliating treatments that you can consider.

Switching Products Too Often. When you start treating early signs of ageing, naturally want to see results as soon as possible. Unfortunately, you can’t be in a rush when it comes to treating ageing because skincare products need at least a month to start taking effect. Give a new skincare regime at least six weeks before you decide to change things up. Again, speak to a professional clinician about products and when you can expect to see results.

If you’ve realised that you are making one or more of these skincare mistakes, know that you can still turn things around. Ageing cannot be reversed but there are ways to reduce signs of ageing and to slow down the ageing process. A qualified clinician will be able to assist you with a professional treatment plan that includes cosmetic treatments and the right products, so schedule an appointment today.
