I have found 5 common mistakes in trying to achieve the best skincare. These include lifestyle habits and not using the best skincare products. If these mistakes are reversed the changes you will see in the mirror can be dramatic.
It's unbelievable how we take our skin and especially our facial skin for granted. The best skincare involves many factors including lifestyle, environment and the best skincare products. What are some of the common mistakes made?
Lifestyle is so important in maintaining healthy skin. Late nights, not getting enough rest, an unhealthy diet and irregular exercise are not a good idea. If you are waking up tired on a regular basis, notice how you look when you first wander into the bathroom and look in the mirror.
A fast food diet or a diet high in carbs or fats will take its toll on your skin. The fact that you are gaining weight or not feeling 100% is not lost on your skin.
If you're not exercising on a regular basis, you are not doing your skin a favor. Exercise gets your blood flowing which will rid the body of impurities among other things.
Smoking and drinking and the late hours that go with drinking especially add up quickly. The lines around the mouth and eyes of smokers is an obvious result of that habit.
These lifestyle mistakes are not the best skincare habits and will eventually show up on your face.
Most sunscreens are taken with the mistaken idea that they will shield you from the sun's damage. They can help but the only real answer is to limit the time spent in the sun. Most sunscreens can also damage the skin because of the synthetic ingredients.
Most people use over the counter heavily advertised products for skin care. The best skincare products are natural. The manufacturers of a good natural product will spend much more money on the product itself instead of advertising.
The common discount products usually contain chemicals which are irritating, unsafe and often don't work very well. The best skincare products are those containing only natural ingredients. They promote protection, toning and a healing of the skin. They won't contain alcohol but natural oils and antioxidants.
The above mistakes can be changed and the changes will be visible. The advances in natural products have been striking and is ongoing in its research. I have done a great deal of research into the best skincare products. Please visit my site to see the surprising product results that I've discovered.
