With Halloween right around the corner, it's the perfect time to discuss some "spooky" skincare habits that can send shivers down your spine!
While the holiday season is all about embracing the mysterious, it's crucial to ensure your skincare routine remains a treat (and not a trick)!
Let's find out more on these five skincare habits, that can be scarier than any horror movie! (we guarantee!)
Skipping SPF - A ghastly gamble
One of the spookiest skincare habits is neglecting sunscreen. Skipping sun protection can lead to sunburn, premature aging, and the most dreaded of all skin horrors - skin cancer. The sun's harmful UV rays can haunt your skin's health, leading to a multitude of issues, from fine lines and wrinkles to hyperpigmentation.
Did you know that sunscreen should reapplied throughout the day no matter the season? If not, this could be why you are still waiting and waiting for your skin “to see some bright days”. Don't let your skin be the victim of this grave mistake; apply sunscreen daily to ward off these terrifying effects.
Not Removing Your Makeup Before Bed
Not cleaning your makeup before bed is one of the scariest skincare habit you can commit. This bad habit clogs your pores, inflames your skin, makes it dull, and creates more wrinkles, and this may haunt you (not only) overnight!
Allowing makeup to linger can also lead to other terrifying skin issues, from acne to premature aging. Don't let the horror of a neglected cleansing routine creep into your skincare regimen! Always cleanse your face before the Sandman visits during the beauty sleep.
Not Washing Your Hands Before Washing Your Face
Neglecting to wash your hands before cleansing your face is a ghastly skincare habit. It's akin to welcoming the unseen spirits of bacteria, dirt, and germs to wreak havoc on your delicate skin.
Failing to cleanse your hands first, can lead to breakouts and skin irritations, turning your skincare routine into a true horror story. Protect your skin from these menacing invaders and always wash your hands before your daily skincare ritual for a clear and skin.
Not getting your yearly skin check
Skipping your annual skin check at the dermatologist is another very spooky habit. Regular check-ups are essential to catch potential horrors like different skin conditions in their early stages, allowing for timely intervention and peace of mind.
Don't let the specter of undetected skin concerns haunt you; make that appointment and keep your skin healthy and thriving.
Not using the proper skincare products for your skin type
Failing to use the right skincare products for your specific skin type is a truly chilling skincare habit. It's like stumbling through a dark, haunted forest without a map, unsure of where you're headed.
Not choosing your skincare products according to your skin's unique needs, can lead to a nightmare of issues, from excessive dryness to frustrating breakouts.
Don't let your skin's distress signal go unanswered; take the time to understand your skin type and invest in the right products for a skincare routine that's nothing short of magical.
If you’re unsure on the right skincare products your skin might need, skin fairies (or your esthetician) are always there to show you the way to happier, brighter skin days!
