5 skin care don’ts for every Agent of Chic
CEO Tina Aldatz of Savvy Travelers, who makes disposable eco-friendly beauty wipes, shares intel on 5 no-nos when it comes to skin care, and it’s got me stocking up on a few extra essentials as I plan for a summer getaway.
Between bad habits and germs, our skin can really take a hit. It’s up to us to be proactive to make sure that we hold ourselves accountable in taking care of our skin, as well as being prepared. When we do those two things we will end up with skin that we love and loves us back.
Not removing makeup before bed. Many people hit the sack without washing their face, and often leaving makeup on when they do it. According to the National Sleep Foundation, when you do this you can damage your skin. Going to bed with a dirty face leads to clogged pores, makeup tends to have free radicals held in it, which will lead to wrinkles. Keeping something like Take Offz facial cleansing and moisturizing wipes close by provides people with an easy and convenient way to always be able to quickly clean and moisturize their face before bed.
Overlooking the importance of exfoliating. Many people tend to overlook the importance of getting their skin exfoliated. When you have it exfoliated, it removes the old, dead layer, so that younger and healthier skin can regenerate. Regularly doing this at home or having this done by getting regular facials is advised to get the best results.
Not staying hydrated. According to the National Institutes of Health, the skin contains around 30 percent water. It’s this water that gives skin its plumpness, elasticity, and resiliency. If you are not staying well hydrated, your skin can lose those attributes, so be sure to drink up.
Getting too much sun exposure. According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. Getting too much sun exposure to the skin can lead to skin cancer, as well as cause premature wrinkles. Protect the skin by wearing sunscreen, a hat, and seeking shade whenever possible.
Our skin is so delicate, yet we treat it as if it can put up with all of the mean things we do to it. Taking care of your skin can help keep you looking younger, feeling great, and loving what you see when you look in the mirror.
Having dirty hands. We come in contact with many germs every day, especially on our hands. When those germ-filled hands touch your face, you are transferring them there. This can lead to clogged pores, breakouts, and infections. Keep hands clean by frequently washing them with soap and water, or using anti-bacterial cleansing wipes, such as Klean Upz, when soap and water are not available.
