Are you applying skincare products wrongly? Find out what you're doing wrong!

We all have our own beauty routines, catered for our own skin type and preferences. However, you'd be surprised to know that there are "right" and "wrong" methodologies and even products! 

Today, I want to share with you about how the wrong application methods can cause more damage to your skin, and what those wrong methods are.

To be clear, we're talking about the skin on our face and neck in this post.



Consequences of using the "wrong" methods

It's important to know this. We put in time, effort and money into our beauty routines, but if done wrongly, we could actually cause:
  • Sagging
  • Wrinkling
  • Lessened effectiveness of our products
What are the "wrong" methods?
  1. Rubbing product into your skin
  2. Using harsh products 
  3. Not applying toner first 
  4. Applying retinol in the day
  5. Applying sunblock too late
What are the "right" methods?

The first 2 in the list above are linked to being harsh on your skin. There's 2 kinds of harshness here.

     A. No matter how gentle you think you are, fact is, your fingers are still tugging at your skin. This will contribute to your skin sagging over time.

     B. There are so many different types of products for a reason. If it's body cleanser, don't wash your face with it! If it's a face cream, don't use it as an eye cream!

Instead of massaging beauty products into your skin, you should pat them in gently. Or, you can use a jade roller (not sure about a jade roller? See what Chloe has to say!), which is delightfully smooth to the touch and even promotes blood circulation.





Next, always apply toner first!

Use a cotton pad to apply toner with short, upward strokes to lightly distribute toner. This will also remove any residual dirt that your facial cleanser didn't manage to wash off. Don't just scrape the cotton pad across your face in one motion!

Skincare Tip: every few days, pat on a pea-sized amount of toner with our fingers, so our skin can absorb the full goodness of our toner!




Moving on, let's talk about retinol.

Retinol is basically Vitamin A, which is great for making our skin look younger and can also help to mitigate the harmful effects of the sun on our skin. There are a lot of products with retinol out there today, and they can cost you quite a pretty sum! 

Use retinol in your night routine, as the sun will reduce its effectiveness. 



Lastly, sunblock. We all know that it's important to use sunblock, but not all of us apply it correctly. Sunblock should be applied 15 to 20 minutes prior to you stepping out of your house, and should be reapplied consistently throughout the day. 

Granted, I don't reapply it, but I did when I used this sunscreen spray from Bioderma that can be layered on top of makeup, making reapplication effortless!

*****

Just like how it takes years for wrinkles to show, the effects of what I've shared with you today won't have immediately noticeable results. If you're looking for immediate results, you should approach a professional like a dermatologist instead.

  1. Hey everyone!
    Today I come to you with so much excitement!
    My Ex and I broke up 1 year and 2 months ago and i was six months pregnant. We both love each other and it was a shock to me and it really broke my heart. I tried to call him and both of his lines were disconnected. I tried to reach him on social networks but he deleted me off of them. I tried to reach his parents and they told me that their son said that he does not love me and does not want to see me and they do not know what is wrong. I cried and cried everyday because I loved him very much. Until I gave birth and the baby was one year old, I could not get my love back. Again, I was confused. I do not know what to do and I also lost my job and I have no money to take care of the baby. I was miserable in life so I cried to my sister and told her my problem and said that she knew of one powerful spell caster that helped her when she could not get pregnant. I contacted him by email and he said he will help me and told me that a woman cast a spell upon my man and said he will help me break the spell so my man will come back to me and be mine forever. It was a great surprise to me that everything that he said came to pass. My man came back to me immediately, saying that I should forgive him. I am sending a very big thank you to this powerful and real spell caster. I pray for him to live long and do more of his wonderful work. If you have any kind of problem disturbing you in life, you have to contact this powerful spell caster! He can help you. He will not disappoint you, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, Here’s his contact:

  4. I would personally suggest that a detailed analysis of ingredients along with hands-on testing on the aging skincare products, be truthful about stating your opinion, irregardless whether it is a positive or negative comment.
