Bad habits make the skin more and more damaged

With age, the skin will gradually age, not only that, fragile skin is also easily damaged by chemicals in cosmetics. How to prevent?


Fragile skin always needs careful care to stay clean, healthy and naturally radiant. But under the influence of time, age, environment and especially improper cosmetic habits, cosmetics containing toxic ingredients are the factors that make the skin thinner and thinner. weak and severely damaged with deep symptoms. Let's see what these habits are and how to prevent them!

Choose cosmetics that are not suitable for your skin:

All major cosmetic brands have consulting rooms for customers to make the best choice for your skin. Choosing the wrong product can have serious consequences for your skin. Your skin is oily, if you rush to get products containing a lot of oil, it will lead to excess oil on the skin, causing clogged pores. Choosing the wrong product also makes your skin seriously allergic.


According to dermatologist Leslie Baumann, author of "Solutions for Every Skin Type," using the wrong product is a big mistake that many girls make. Listen to some of the doctor's advice below:

People with oily skin should choose a cleanser that contains salicylic acid. To protect your skin from UV rays, you should choose an oil-free sunscreen. Doctors also recommend exfoliating once a week with a product with glycolic acid.

- Those with sensitive skin should use an emollient cleanser. If you want to buy sunscreen, you should choose one that is fragrance-free and non-irritating. Anti-aging cream for those with sensitive skin that needs hyaluronic acid and lipids.

For combination skin, choose a cleanser for oily skin and a light moisturizer.

- For dry skin, you should choose soap-free cleansers, because it will not strip the skin's natural oils. A moisturizer containing trihalose will both ensure moisture and not clog pores. You should also occasionally apply an anti-aging treatment with a face mask or with a cream containing kinetin and Matrixyl.

Cosmetic abuse

Modern women are increasingly dependent on cosmetics and make-up items. But not many people pay attention to what ingredients such cosmetics contain and whether those ingredients can be combined safely for the skin.

Sometimes, ingredients that you think are positive and effective are counterproductive. Sometimes, two or more cosmetics have the same ingredients, and when applied, they cause severe irritation to the skin, causing damage or swelling.

In particular, if you apply products that treat different problems (like acne and sunburn products) at the same time, the ingredients can "fight" and cause further damage. your sensitive skin. The most common culprits are: retinol (vitamin A), glycolic acid, vitamin C, and benzoyl peroxide. Avoid using them at the same time or at least apply them at different times of the day

Using too much skin cream

Besides those who give up moisturizer for the skin, there are also people who take care of their skin too much, whenever they hear a good cream, buy it and apply it to the skin immediately. You use skin care products to get smooth skin, but if you overdo it, the effect will be opposite.

If you apply too much cream, it will not be able to penetrate deep into the cell tissues, so the skin cannot breathe, leading to clogged pores. Sometimes this also happens with dry skin.

Besides, sometimes in creams with anti-inflammatory substances will have the opposite effect, so please consult carefully and be persistent with your own products. Don't stand there looking at the mountains and dazzled with products or your skin will suffer. And especially don't choose for yourself homemade lotions with toxic peeling ingredients!

Improper exfoliation

Exfoliation helps to brighten the skin, remove dead cells that cause darkening and causing horny skin. It's a habit worth maintaining, but do it once a week. Using a mask to exfoliate more than twice a week will damage the epidermis, thereby reducing its protective function and will cause skin irritation, rashes, acne breakouts. .

If you have sensitive skin, you should not use fruits with high acidity, and dry skin should choose avocado or olive oil as a skin mask.

No sun protection

Many women do not have the habit of using sunscreen, only using them on beach occasions. In fact, even in cool weather, ultraviolet rays still penetrate your skin. The best way to keep your skin from wrinkling, sagging, and mottled is to use sunscreen every time you go outside.

The SPF of the sunscreen should be at least 30. Sunscreens that contain broad-spectrum sunscreen actives (can block both UVA and UVB rays) will protect your skin best and for the longest time.

Don't just put sunscreen on your face, but also take care of other parts of your body. Before going out, even if you are in a car, you should still apply sunscreen. If you have to be outdoors for a relatively long time, remember to reapply the cream every two hours to protect your skin as much as possible.

Get rid of eye skin

Did you know that the skin around your eyes is thinner than any other part of your body, so don't rub your eyes often. If you rub too hard, you can break the delicate blood vessels, causing the skin around the eyes to darken and fade.

The skin around your eyes is more sensitive than any other skin on your body, and it's also where time strikes you most quickly to make you look older. Let's reverse aging by taking care of the skin around the eyes carefully.

Squeeze caviar

We all want to get rid of that nasty pimple on our face as soon as possible. But the truth is that the more you squeeze the pimple, the deeper the bacteria are pushed into the pore, causing swelling, infection, and even scarring later on. Using a lot of chemicals on the skin will not make the stubborn acne go away, but also make the skin around the pimple hurt and swollen.

The advice for you is: Use an acne treatment with a benzoyl peroxide solution of no more than 2.5% in the evening, and do it again in the morning. With "stubborn" acne, doctors recommend using vitamin A to help protect pores, but absolutely avoid overuse in large quantities.
