When it comes to skincare, it’s not all as simple as it seems. There are some common skincare mistakes we’re making, when in reality, they’re so basic they’re incredibly easy to fix.
We have identified 3 of the worst offenders so you can kick off your New Year with one seriously perfect (and polished) routine.
You don’t have acne if you have a couple of spots
Okay, so one spot appears on your chin and you automatically run to purchase a whole acid-based routine to clear it up. Not only is this super damaging to your skin, it’s just plain wrong.
Just because you have a couple of breakouts on your face, it doesn’t mean you have acne. In fact, using acne-targeted products may cause you to break out even more because they’re too strong for your skin.
If you have one spot, have a think about why it could be. Had a few late nights recently? Indulged in a few too many chocolates over the festive period? Add more water, fruits and vegetables into your routine, get a good night’s sleep and you should see those spots clear up in no time.
If you have played all your cards right and you’re still breaking out, it could be hormonal fluctuations. Pop a little of the Origins Super Spot Blemish Treatment Gel, which contains pore clearing ingredients to take that spot right down.
