There’s so much information available online that it has become pretty easy for people to be misled. Many people believe in these skincare myths/tips, which eventually can be harmful to your skin. Some people argue that using kitchen ingredients on their face like lemon, baking soda, etc. works for them. They see millions of people liking/following those who advocate such tips and their short-term effects. However, they don’t realize that in the long run, these DIYs can damage their skin barrier making it much more difficult to get back their healthy skin.
People run behind having perfect glass skin and want immediate results, but skincare is NOT about having perfect glass skin, it is about taking care of your skin to keep it healthy. It is a consistent process just like you take care of your body, eat, or even exercise to keep it healthy.
Here are a few bad skincare practices/tips that you should leave in 2021.
Use Coconut Oil As A Makeup Remover
Coconut oil is highly comedogenic and can clog your pores leading to breakouts and acne, especially for oily or acne-prone skin types.
Using More Skincare Products or Having An Elaborate 10-Step Routine For Healthy Skin
The only basic routine you need to follow for healthy skin is CMS: Cleanser, Moisturizer, and Sunscreen. You can exfoliate about 1-2 times a week to get rid of dead skin cells but all other steps are completely optional.
Scrub Your Face More If You Have Acne
Scrubbing will actually cause irritation on the skin and may make your acne worse. Avoid using scrubs if you have active acne on your skin.
You Don’t Need To Apply Sunscreen During Winters
You need to apply sunscreen every day irrespective of the weather or climate.
