There are common sense solutions to many of your skincare woes. Sometimes, people have dry skin and make it dryer by washing too often. The common sense solution is to stop washing it as often. Then, there are people who use a lot of creams and lotions but eat a lot of junk food, which makes their skin patchy and dull. The common sense solution here is to stop eating junk food and feed your body well. In this way, there are many common sense ideas that you should think about when using beauty products. Here are a few to keep in mind:
- Be Practical: If you’re not the kind of person who likes using too many products, then don’t buy a whole bunch at one go. Just buy 1-2 things that you know you’re going to use. A lot of people get initially excited and go overboard, buying a lot of things which end up going waste. It’s better to use one or two good things which agree with your skin and stick to them.
- Try Everything: If possible, you can take a small sample of the product home before you buy. Try it out for a couple of days. If it feels good, looks good and doesn’t cause any reaction, then go ahead and buy it. Many stores will be happy to give you samples. This makes more sense than spending a lot of money and buying the product without trying it out first.
- Keep Track of What Goes into Your Body: No matter how great a product is, it’s not going to be much use if you’re putting a lot of unhealthy food and drink into your body. Control your fat intake, drink a lot of fluids and eat your fruits and veggies if you want to have good skin.
- How Often Should You Wash Your Face?There are different views about this. Some experts say that washing too much will dry out your skin while others say you shouldn’t let your sweat dry out because this can lead to skin allergies and reactions. However, you may need to wash your face once before leaving for work and once more after going to the gym. Just make sure you don’t wash more than twice a day.
- Listen to Your Skin: You skin is always trying to tell you something. It may just be that you’re worrying too much and breaking out in hives. Or it may be that the product you’re using or the clothes you’re wearing are not agreeing with you. Be observant and your skin will tell you what you need to know.
