Albert Einstein was quoted saying “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” As the month of January comes to a close, it’s important to remember that your outlook on skincare must also change to ultimately achieve your skincare goals.
Three skincare misconceptions you should leave in 2020
While it may be the holy grail cleanser for some, it’s important to remember that: body, neck, and facial skin all possess different sensitivity levels. The skin surface on these parts of the body can be compared to: construction paper, notebook paper, and tissue paper. When using this analogy; the reasoning behind not using body products on the face becomes scarily apparent. The harsh detergents, and fragrances typically used in commercial body cleansers are not meant to come anywhere close to your facial skin.
Social media has revitalized the beauty community in many ways. For the first time in history, anybody now has the ability to: create, share, and market their own personal beauty brands from the comfort of their own home. However before you run with the hype, be warned. An online presence should not be the only validating factor when searching for skincare tips and remedies.
All skincare treatments should be approached with caution. Before jumping on any bandwagons, consult with your skin care professional to ensure that your treatment will be beneficial for your skin type. Dermaplaning, a treatment recently popularized by social media is a great example for this misconception. Even though it is currently hailed as a ‘miracle’ exfoliation treatment, dermaplaning can spell out trouble for those who are prone to ingrown hairs.
