Skincare Sins: Here's What You Shouldn't Be Doing

by Lisa DMello on February 28, 2023

Are you tired of looking like a wrinkly raisin or an oil slicked pizza? Well, fear not, my fellow skincare enthusiasts! We’ve all been there, slathering on random creams and toners, trying to achieve that flawless, glowing complexion. But, alas, despite our best efforts, we often end up committing some of the biggest skincare mistakes known to humankind. So, let’s take a closer look at these skin sins and see if we can learn a thing or two (and have a laugh along the way).

  1. Skipping Sunscreen: If you want to look like a walking, talking leather handbag, then by all means, skip the sunscreen. But if you want to avoid premature wrinkles, dark spots, and skin cancer, then slather on that SPF, my friend. And no, that little bit of SPF in your moisturizer doesn’t cut it. You need to apply a generous amount of broad-spectrum sunscreen every day, rain or shine, indoors or outdoors. Trust me, your future self will thank you.

  2. Over-Exfoliating: Sure, exfoliation can help remove dead skin cells and give you that baby-soft skin you’ve been dreaming of. But, overdoing it can lead to irritation, inflammation, and even acne. So, put down that sandpaper scrub and listen to your skin. If it’s feeling red, itchy, or sensitive, it’s time to give it a break.

  3. Sleeping with Makeup On: Ah, the classic mistake that we’ve all been guilty of at some point in our lives. It’s late, you’re tired, and the last thing you want to do is go through a whole skincare routine. But, trust me, sleeping with your makeup on is a recipe for disaster. Not only does it clog your pores and cause breakouts, but it also accelerates the aging process. So, no matter how tired you are, muster up the strength to wash your face before hitting the hay.

  4. Using Too Many Products: We’ve all fallen prey to the lure of fancy serums and creams that promise to magically transform our skin. But, piling on too many products can actually do more harm than good. Not only can it lead to irritation and breakouts, but it can also cause your skin to become dependent on certain ingredients, making it harder to achieve healthy skin in the long run. So, keep it simple, stick to the basics, and listen to your skin.

  5. Neglecting Your Neck and Hands: It’s easy to get so caught up in perfecting your face that you forget about the rest of your body. But, your neck and hands are just as important when it comes to skincare. They’re often exposed to the sun and other environmental stressors, and can easily show signs of aging. So, don’t forget to extend your skincare routine to your neck and hands, and give them the TLC they deserve.

So, there you have it, folks, some of the biggest skincare mistakes you can make. But, don’t worry, we’ve all been there, and there’s always room for improvement. So, take care of your skin, be kind to yourself, and remember, laughter is the best medicine for any skincare mishap.
