5 skincare mistakes you should never make

Wanting to get that flawless and supple skin? Here, we share with you five skincare mistakes that you should always avoid.

When it comes to skincare, we all know it’s no cakewalk. We all put in a lot of efforts to hide fine lines and to get rid of dark circles. For most of us, the ultimate goal is to get supple and flawless skin. But in an attempt to do so, we often make mistakes that can have negative results.

For many this is a major cause of concern. People often worry if they are unknowingly harming their skin. Has this been concerning you as well? If yes, then we have some tips that may prove helpful. 

Listed below are five skincare mistakes that you should never make.


Not knowing your skin type 

Before applying anything on your skin, you should know if the product is even suitable for your skin. For this, it is important that you know your skin type. If you don’t do this, you might put a product which is not made for your skin and it may have a bad reaction. One can also take help from a dermatologist to know their skin type. 

Not checking for allergies 

While only a few people have sensitive skin, others, too, can have a bad reaction from the products that they don’t test for allergies. One should never put any product on their face without knowing what all ingredients are there in it. An easy way to check for allergies is by applying a bit of product on the back of your hand or on your elbow.

Splurging too much on skincare products 

If you are building your skincare routine for the first time and are not sure what all will work for you, then one big mistake that you can easily avoid is spending too much on skincare products. You can simply buy sample size products and see if they suit your skin or not. By doing this, you can easily discard the products that do not work for you and you will also get to try a variety of products.


Switching your skincare routine too often 

After testing a lot of products, we get to make our skincare routine. Our skin takes time to get used to those products. One of the biggest skincare mistakes that one can make is switching these products quite often. One should stick to their skincare regime and let those products show their effect. 

Not including kitchen ingredients in beauty regime 

There are so many amazing ingredients available in the kitchen that should be a part of your beauty routine. If you have not been using these wonder ingredients, then it is a sin. You should try to use as many DIY products as possible. You can make a variety of packs, masks and scrubs at home. However, you should never put things like baking powder or garam masala on your face.
