1. THE STRATUM CORNEUM IS TOO THICK
Even if you choose the right moisturizing product, if the skin condition is not ready, then how many skin care products you apply will be in vain. Among them, the most common thing that girls ignore is their own cuticle. The stratum corneum is too thick for skin care products to penetrate the skin. Therefore, it is recommended to use exfoliating products regularly. It is also best to apply skin care products when the skin is still watery and soft after showering, so that the products can be more effective. Well absorbed.
2. SKIN CARE PRODUCTS REMAIN THE SAME
Maybe you think that the moisturizing cream on hand is very useful, so you don’t get tired of applying it every day, but in fact, we should switch skin care products according to the needs of the skin. If you usually have oily skin, if you become neutral on dry days, you can switch from refreshing to choosing skin care products with a higher degree of moisture.
3. FORGETTING TO HYDRATE
When the skin sees dry lines, many people will immediately think of applying a moisturizing cream, but in fact, relying on such skin care products alone, the skin that is continuously dehydrated will lose its luster. Therefore, we should start with moisturizing products to protect the skin. Infuse enough water to look plump.
4. WASHING WATER TEMPERATURE IS TOO HIGH
Some studies have pointed out that in winter, showering and cooling for too long will take away the moisture from your body and make your skin drier. Therefore, remember not to wash your face with too hot water because the weather is cold.
5. THE MOISTURIZING MASK IS LEFT ON FOR TOO LONG
Many people think that the denser the moisturizing mask is, the better, but it turns out that we need to pay attention to whether the skin's moisture is sufficient, because when the skin's moisture content is more than the mask, the mask will suck the skin's moisture back, making the skin more and more dry. Too frequent use may irritate the skin and accelerate moisture loss, so it is recommended to apply 2 to 3 times a week.
6. DRINKING TOO LITTLE WATER
70% of the human body is composed of water, so it is very important to add enough water every day, so that the skin will not be dehydrated, and it can also improve blood circulation and improve skin quality from the bottom layer. It is recommended that adults consume at least 2000c.c. of water a day. If you are afraid of forgetting to drink water, you might as well download the water drinking reminder app to help.
