Who does not have at least one, two or even 10 bad habits. Some bad habits help keep the balance, but there should be a limit if they affect the skin. If you exfoliate too much, often drunk, or eat too much candy in the past few weeks – and your skin is paying – then it’s time to improve. Let’s reactivate skincare routine with quick and easy tips from experienced dermatologists!
Problem: You can not stop picking acne. So your skin gets worse than before.
Solution: Picking acne occurs almost in women, regardless of age, from adolescence to 40s. You simply can not stand it. In other words, you do not have time for acne. The problem is: You are making the situation worse, because it causes inflammation, redness and stimulate melanin production – a pigment that causes bruising and darkening of the skin. To soothe your skin at this time, use wet cotton and non prescription acne products that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. And the next time, if you feel the urge to squeeze a pimple, visit your dermatologist for cortisone injections to help reduce swelling.
Don’t wash off your makeup
Problem: You go to bed ( too late) without washing your face. Your pores are clogged and your skin loses its glow.
Solution: The lazy girl can avoid this problem by using make up remover. Keep them beside your bed, just wipe away and then go to bed. “”This is not the best way to clean the face”, dermatologist Elizabeth Tanzi, founder and director of Capital Laser & Skin Care said, “but it’s still better than doing nothing”. She suggests using glycolic acid remover to dissolve dirt which clog the pores and you will wake up with a slightly more glowing face.
Problem: You drink too much at the weekend, and now your skin is having a serious problem.
Solution: Alcohol is a depressant, and drinking too much alcohol slows the body down. It slows down circulation on the skin, makes you look puffy and dehydrated, making the skin look gray. “The goal is to recover, eliminate harmful substances, and help skin look glowing again,” Dr.Tanzi explained.
Control injuries by supplementing water both inside and outside. Drink plenty of water, then splash water on. Wash your face with cold water, and use a cold towel to soothe the puffiness around your eyes. Followed by a cooling cucumber mask to restore skin brightness. When your headache is better, you can do some cardio exercises.
Problem: Clogged pores
Solution: The problem is, bad habits will always appear on the face (lack of sleep, poor nutrition, skin exposed to smoke / dirt, etc.). But we will not recommend staying at home on Saturday night or away from the outside world. Our advice is: always wash your face before going out, and increase your moisturizing effect with enhanced detox product. Squeeze 3-5 drops of green coffee extract in palm, mix with moisturizer and your skin will improve in a few weeks.
Problem: You know you need to quit, but this seems to be impossible.
Solution: Not surprisingly, Dr. Tanzi and Dr. Schultz all agree that cigarettes are the worst pollutant. It causes a wide range of problems, including vasoconstriction (tightening of blood vessels), poor circulation, organ damage, and weaken the skin barrier system, damage DNA and premature aging. You need an antioxidant protection.
Dermatologists advise quitting – of course – but in the meantime, fight off the effects of exposuring to your own cigarette smoke (or your friends). Dr. Tanzi suggests using a brush to gently clean dirt like soot, from the skin. To solve the internal factors which affect the skin, you should use serum contains substances that help protect skin from free radicals like ferulic acid, and vitamins C and E for protection and nutritional supplements.
Product: This is an extremely wonderful product for your face. You may not like the scent, but the whitening effect will make you love this product.
Forget the sunscreen
Problem: Autumn is so warm, so you relax in the park without sunscreen.
Solution: Soothe skin! “Use milk and aloe to soothe, moisturize and hydrate, plus non prescription hydrocortisone to reduce inflammation,” said Dr. Schultz. “And do not forget that “suntan” is synonymous with “skin damage”. So always use SPF 30+ broad spectrum sunscreen”. Dr. Tanzi recommends you to have the sunscreen powder in your pocket.
Problem: You are too eager to scrub your face and hope for a smooth, glowing skin, but you have exfoliated too much. And your skin is peeling and dry because you have cleared out the natural oils of your skin.
Solution: Dermatologist Jeannette Graf, director of dermatology at Omni Aesthetic MD in New York City, said “firstly clean with micellar water. Micelles are small molecules of oil suspended in water to increase hydration. Then restore and protect the damaged moisture barrier with moisturizer, and only exfoliate once a week”.
Waxing gone wrong
Problem: You miss the waxing date, worry about the hair grows out of control, you have done DIY wax. And your skin begins to appear redness.
Solution: You have caused skin damage, and it is looking for help. You can soothe your skin with moisturizing products.
Eating to much
Problem: You eat too much and still feel full until the next morning.
Solution: “Many people do not consider eating too much as a bad habit, but it makes the skin puffy and dehydrate,” says dermatologist Ellen Marmur, founder of Marmur Medical. “In addition, it increases inflammation and hematoma, causing more acne.” Why? Because when you fill the stomach with food, you reduce the amount of circulation and energy, imbalance the skin and definitely damage the skin. Solution? Stop eating when you are full, sleep for seven hours, exercise, and most importantly, drink plenty of water.
