NO DERMATOLOGIST WOULD EVER TRY THESE 7 THINGS ON THEIR SKINcontact@nuturemite.info
Ever wondered what makes a dermatologist look so perfect? Flawless skin is a myth. We are both perfect and imperfect at the same time. Amidst all the imperfections of our skin, dermatologists make it pretty close to perfection. They not only possess an impeccable knowledge on skincare but they also imbibe within the things that affect our skin positively. There lie several reasons behind their flawless look. There are several things that no dermatologist would ever add to their skincare regime. We have brought you those 7 things that require your attention.
PICKING OF SKIN
How many of us find it very tempting to liberate the pimple or blackheads blocking up our pores? I am sure a lot of us do, but do you know what repercussions abide by it? Don’t worry if you don’t. We are here to your rescue with every piece of enlightenment we could. Pimple and blackhead picking is as dangerous as it sounds. While picking it might pop under your skin. This would transport the inflammatory substances they possess deep into your pores giving rise to magnified pimples, eruptions or scar. Therefore, picking of pimples is one thing thar no dermatologist would ever do.
EXPOSING THEIR SKIN DIRECTLY IN SUNLIGHT
Dermatologists quit taking even a single step outside their house without sunscreen. A lot of us consider this an unnecessary step. Well, what we are unaware of is the extent to which UV rays can damage our skin. They not only promote ageing but also act as an initiator to brown spots, sagging, wrinkling, skin cancer and irregular texture. Sunscreen with a broad spectrum formula and SPF-30 protects us from the possible damages by these UV rays.
SPRAYING SUNSCREEN DIRECTLY ON SKIN
So do you spray sunscreen directly onto your skin? Sprays often land on places we don’t want them to. Ever realised that spray sunscreen covers several other places except for your skin. So, it’s advisable to spray it onto your hand and then apply it to your skin. Sprays are generally used for larger surfaces. Many people even inhale the droplet while spraying it on the face. This can be dangerous to health.
TANNING THEIR SKIN
Tanning has become a new trend. A lot of people love the appearance tanned legs give them. This raises a question, are they healthy? Well, exposure to UV rays can never be healthy for our skin. They tend to change our skin by breaking down the elastin and collagen. This makes the skin deteriorate, making it thinner. Thinner skin is prone to wrinkles, sagging, skin cancer and enhanced pores. You can use a self-tanner instead of UV exposure.
WASHING THEIR FACE HARSHLY
Cleansing your face not only removes all the dirt and pollutants but also gets rid of the oil present on your skin. This makes it the most important step of any cleansing routine. Over washing or washing harshly causes inflammation and sensitization if prolonged. As much as it needs to get rid of the oil, some amount of oil and bacteria are needed by the skin. It pushes our skin into the abysmal pit of dryness. Though some amount of moisture can be restored by moisturizers, the original state cannot be acquired.
SLUMBER WITH MAKE-UP ON
Another thing that dermatologists won’t ever do is go off to sleep with their make-up on. Make-up on the skin sweeps inside the pores causing inflammation. This causes pimples, irritation, puffiness, wrinkles, etc. make-up should be removed from the skin with proper care as harshness causes immense damage to it.
Exfoliation can be termed as the process of removing dead skin cells. Without any doubt, this process holds its importance in skincare regime but can be harmful if overdone. Exfoliation processed with gentleness and care brings out the bright and smooth skin beneath the dead ones. However, if overly done it leads to inflammation, irritation and redness. Exfoliation with the right product can be done twice a week.
So did you include any of these in your skincare regime? If you did then it’s high time that your regime goes through alteration. With all these tips in your mind build a new skincare routine for yourself that comes directly from your favourite dermatologist. The love we show to our skin is the love we hold for ourselves. Every skin type, every complexion is perfect in its exquisite way. They all just lack a tinge of proper care. Give this to them and they’ll shine.
Stay exquisite, be exquisite!
