Are you sure you know everything about having a correct skincare routine? 

Let’s check the 5 skincare mistakes that almost everyone makes and let’s build the best skincare routine. 

1.Not applying sunscreen indoors or when the sun is not out: it is fundamental to wear sunscreen every day, even when you are at home or when it is raining or cloudy outside. Moreover, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends using every day a high spectrum solar cream of at least SPF 30 or over and to apply it again after two hours. Therefore, applying sunscreen everyday should be your top priority during your daily skincare routine. 

    2.Sleeping with make-up on or not removing makeup correctly: to prevent makeup-induced acne, it is fundamental to remove all the makeup at night before going to bed.

    Not removing makeup can: 

    -Increase risk of infection

    -Cause acne 

    -Develop a rash 

    -Clogged pores and breakouts

    -Dull skin 

    -Free radical damage

    3.Not cleaning your makeup brushes: dirty makeup brushes can cause infections, therefore it is recommended to wash your brushes every 7 to 10 days. 

    In fact, not cleaning them regularly might cause: 

    -A ton of Bacteria

    -Acne and breakouts



    4.Ignoring your neck: one of the biggest mistakes is to forget your neck during your daily skincare. This part of the body is very delicate and for this reason in the long term the damage will be higher. Therefore, it is fundamental to not stop your daily skincare product application at the jawline. In fact, the neck and the décolletage area are exposed to UV radiation in the same way as our face. 


    5.Wrong steps during your routine: it seems like it does not matter in which order you apply your skincare products since they all blend together. Nevertheless, applying products not in their correct order can make them less effective.
