Misconceptions about skincare that are actually counterproductive

Did you know that the "special care" that you think is good for your skin can become the source of skin problems? Here are some tips from beauty experts on how to prevent misunderstood skincare.

Excessive skin care can lead to skin problems?

Face packs, peels, and other special care products are now indispensable items for beautiful skin. Face packs, in particular, are excellent for moisturizing the skin and helping with acne, freckles, and other skin problems, depending on the type.

As more and more people stay at home to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, more and more people are taking the time to take care of their skin. Sand & Sky, an Australian skin care brand, reports that sales of face packs and peels have more than doubled compared to last year.

While many people are now able to spend more time on skin care, cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Parisha Acharya advises that more and more people are overdoing special care.

Dr. Acharya commented in Refinery29, "The more time you have, the more likely you are to overdo your skincare routine, and if you pamper your skin, it can lead to redness, acne, dryness and other skin problems.

Dr. Anjali Mato, a dermatologist, points out that "using multiple active ingredients at the same time, especially retinol, vitamin C, and glycolic acid, can disrupt the skin's barrier function, causing it to become irritated and dry. He points out.

Professional Recommendations for Special Care

To avoid overdoing it, it is best to limit special care to once or twice a week.

Dr. Acharya advised, "Some people have very sensitive skin, so I recommend special care once or twice a week, depending on their skin concerns.

Regarding face packs, Dr. Acharya advised, "Moisturizing face packs can be applied twice a week, while peeling, whitening, and anti-aging face packs should be applied once or twice a week.

Finally, Dr. Acharya said, "Always do a patch test when using a new skin care product. Make sure that your skin does not react to the active ingredients before applying it to your face.

Just like other skin care products such as toners and serums, special care products do not produce dramatic results overnight. As Dr. Acharya explained, "You need to use it continuously for at least 6 to 10 weeks. To avoid the opposite effect, review your skincare routine with the advice of a professional.
