We all like to take care of our skin and make sure it’s looking flawless, but we might unknowingly be doing harm by making these beauty mistakes!
Jennifer Lopez’s facialist has revealed the four biggest skincare mistakes we’re all making and has given us some tips to make sure we’re putting our skin first!
Nichola Joss revealed these four mistakes and some tips to MailOnline FEMAIL.
1. Not Cleansing Correctly
"If you don’t remove cleanser correctly, cleansing particles sit deep in your skin.
"That will lead to congestion and cause breakouts and also an imbalance of pH levels. Essentially, you have to make sure you cleanse off your cleanser.
"In the evening I always make sure I remove any environmental grime, and then do a second cleanse to cleanse the skin slightly deeper."
2. Skipping Toner
"This is one of the most important elements for keeping skin clean and maintaining its pH levels.
"It can also re-balance, refresh, and remove any cleansing particles that are still in the skin - as well as helping to remove cleanser.”
3. Wearing TOO Much Makeup
"Nowadays, girls in their twenties wear far more makeup, layers of foundation and contouring and illuminators, and that can be quite damaging because there’s quite a heavy build-up on the skin.
"The most important thing is to remove all of your makeup and do a gentle exfoliation. Too much makeup can cause congestion and cause breakouts.”
4. Rushing Your Routine
"It’s imperative to break your skincare regime up into stages.
"As soon as you get home, the first thing you must do is remove the grime and pollution, then allow your skin to optimise the heavy-working products like anti-ageing products.
"Do those first steps very early in the evening and leave for at least three to four hours.
"If they’re working throughout the early evening while you’re cooking or watching TV, they can work quite freely and you’re still active and moving therefore your blood is circulating quite highly. That helps the function which helps efficacy of the product.
"And then, when you put an oil on at bedtime, because you’ve given these products time to work.
"When you massage an oil in at bedtime, it traps those products skin-deep so it keeps them working.”
