You Didn’t Know These 4 Things Harmed Your Skin

Okay, we all know about sleeping on time and eating healthy.

Now that you know this article isn’t like a thousand others, let us get to the point.

With a million skincare products available and new ones hitting the shelf every day, it can sometimes be overwhelming to choose the right one for you.

And most people think that skincare is an expensive thing to do. However, it can’t be further from the truth.

In this article, we’ll show you the little things that are harming your skin without you knowing it.

1) Do not be too hard on pimples.

Nothing is more annoying than having a single, noticeable pimple in the middle of your cheek. It is just gross.

We try as much as we can to remove this annoyance forever. However, trying too hard might actually cause problems.

While the pimple would disappear itself if ignored, the scar that forms when you pop it might remain a long, long time.

Also, some pimple-removal products in the market do not do what they promise. Some even make matters worse by drying up your skin too much, which will cause your face to temporarily seem less oily. But it will force the oil glands to produce even more oil eventually.

2) Sometimes less is more, and enough.

We know, it is overwhelmingly difficult to choose skincare products because of the countless alternatives available in the market.

“It is not uncommon for my clients to have a bag full of products for the face only,” says a dermatologist who chose to be anonymous.

However, not all products are meant to go together. In simpler words, they are chemicals, and you never mix two chemicals without knowing how they will react beforehand.

Experiencing red, flaky, or itchy skin that’s sensitive to the sun is a common effect of a chemical overdose on the face and other skin areas. This is exactly the opposite of what we want by our beauty routine.

Also, some might want to apply more doses of skincare products for faster and better results. However, more isn’t always better. Using double the recommended amount won’t give you twice the result in half the time.

In fact, doing this makes the matter worse most of the time.

3) Do you apply sunscreen the right way?

Any time longer than 20 minutes that you spend under the sun is harmful. While getting sun daily is highly important for the body to produce Vitamin D and function properly, sunlight also contains harmful UV rays which will harm your skin. In serious cases, it may even cause cancer.

Sunscreen helps protect the skin by partially blocking ultraviolet rays from the sun.

What is the right amount?

A flat dollop the size of a two-rupee coin is enough for the face only, experts say. Most people apply too little of it.

Also, you should apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before you get in the sun. This is because the ingredients of the sunscreen take time to bind with the skin properly.

Moreover, if you are frequently in the sun, you should reapply sunscreen every two hours. It’s not like the layer you apply in the morning will protect you the entire day.

It is also recommended to apply sunscreen even if you are indoors. Because the rays of the sun can penetrate your skin even while you get outdoors to get coffee for just a minute.

Also, apply sunscreen even on the tip and back of your ears for well-balanced protection.


4) You don’t smile enough.

People in city areas age quickly than the natural pace because of the stressful lifestyle and unhealthy living that comes with an urban place.

Stress is the major cause of all the critical deterioration in our health.

On the other hand, it’s been shown that smiling, even a fake one, signals to the brain that we’re happy and safe, and calms our nervous system.

Smiling is equivalent to creating a happiness level in our brain equal to having 2,000 bars of chocolate.

It also helps reduce stress hormones, lower blood pressure, heart rate, improve mood, and positivity.

Thus, not only will smiling and being content give you glowing skin, it will save you from many life-threatening diseases as well.

This is why you should smile as often as you can while you still have teeth.
