SURABAYAPAGI.com - How many skin care products you use? Maybe it can start from cleansers, toners, and moisturizers. Then many of us also have a favorite serum and micellar water for cleaning facial makeup.
Plus eye cream to disguise dark circles under the eyes. Maybe also use anti-aging retinol and vitamin C serum to brighten up? Not to mention the sheet mask that you used before attending an event.
However, we need to realize whether we use too many skin care products? Nurse Alice Jenkins from Dermatology and Celebrity Injector, said the skin tends to be too moist.
"In fact, only 15 percent of us really need to use moisturizers daily. Those who need moisturizers are usually genetically dry skin," Alice said.
Many think that the more moisturizers used, the more effective it will be. Even though the average skin can only absorb up to 60 percent of what is applied to the face. More than that, anything will only stick to the surface of the face, clog pores, and affect the performance of the skin.
To clean the skin, Alice says, it’s okay to do it twice a day (once in the morning and once at night). But if you have sensitive skin, cleaning your face twice a day can be dangerous.
There are negative effects that too many products can cause on the skin. Overloading the skin with too much cream and weight can make your skin lazy and satisfied.
"Skin becomes dependent on external moisture and does not work hard to perform natural functions to protect and hydrate itself. In fact, using products such as moisturizers will only aggravate the majority of skin problems," Alice said.
Not only does it make your skin depend on additional hydration. Too many care products also produce excessive facial oil production which can cause inflammation, clogged pores, redness, flaking, pigmentation, and zits.
’Skip-care’ is promoted as the latest skin care trend from Korea. But really, dermatologists have taught a simple approach to skin care for years.
Cleaning, refreshing and moisturizing are the three steps you need to keep your skin healthy. However, it also depends on your skin type. For example, there are also those that are more suitable for cleansing, exfoliation, and serum
"The first step in any skin care routine is to start with clean, empty cotton to remove makeup, and dirt from the skin," Alice said. rk
