4 Skincare Mistakes That Cause Your Skin To Age Faster

When it comes to taking care of your skin, every effort counts.

Unfortunately, there are some mistakes that we unconsciously make which could be detrimental to our skin’s progress. It’s the little things we don’t notice.

Maybe these mistakes are why we’re not getting the glow we so dearly deserve (that, and hormones). Here are some skincare mistakes that we may be making right now.

1. You don’t wear sunscreen

Whether you’re outdoors or indoors, sunscreen the best defence against ageing. You may not know it, but UV rays are responsible for 80% of premature ageing, and these rays can penetrate through cloudy days and right into our windows. You can’t blame your wrinkles on genetics any more so slather on some Innisfree Aqua UV Protection Cream Water Drop SPF50+.

2. Expensive products don’t always mean better quality

Of course, expensive products may appear to have better quality ingredients, but what’s the use if they do not work for our skin? For example, gold flakes in skincare products don’t do much other than look pretty and make you feel like a million dollars… we’re sorry. Someone had to say it. Instead of investing in expensive, luxury products, you should put your money into products that really work for you.

3. You ‘forget’ to take your makeup off every night

Instead of calling your girl up to ask if she’s safe after a night out, call her up to remind her that she needs to take off her makeup. No matter how drunk she is, her skin will thank you in the morning, and for the rest of her life. Forgetting to take your makeup off equates to pores clogged up with yesterday’s makeup and dirt, which may cause your skin to break out. So, when you get home, remember to take your makeup off with a makeup remover, like Laneige Perfect Makeup Cleansing Water.

4. You wear products with retinol during the daytime

Retinol molecules are extremely sensitive to UV rays and may break down on your skin if used during the daytime. Most people would use retinol-based products at night due to its regenerative properties, but also because of how it factors under daylight. Retinols causes thinning of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, which causes it to burn easily. So put that retinoid cream down and proceed with sunscreen and a dab of Au Fairy Soothing Spell 100% Organic Aloe Vera Gel.
