Is Your Skincare Routine Actually Working?
Do you spend your time cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin with high quality products only to see no improvement in your skin’s condition? Many men and women think that they are doing the right thing for their skin when in reality they are doing the wrong thing for their skin type or condition. Here are some signs that your skincare routine isn’t working for you and should be changed.
If you have the right skincare routine, you shouldn’t have many acne breakouts. Even if you are prone to acne, the use of the right topical medications as part of your overall skincare routine should prevent moderate to severe breakouts.
Skin feels irritated
If your skin feels irritated, as it might when you have been out in the wind and sun, it could be a sign that your skincare products are too astringent for your skin type. Some people with sensitive skin may need specially formulated skincare products.
Squeaky clean means you are cleaning too vigorously
If you clean your skin and it gets that squeaky clean feeling, it actually means that you have managed to strip your skin of its natural oils and its protective barrier. This makes your skin more prone to other problems with your skincare routine.
Your skin turns red when you use skincare products
If your skin turns red or you develop any kind of visible skin irritation from skincare products, you should see a professional right away for a personalized skincare regimen. It could be that you are allergic to the products you are currently using, or you could simply need products appropriate for your skin type.
