5 Skincare Mistakes You Could Be Making

You’ve got your skincare routine down, you feel like you’re doing everything right, and yet, for whatever reason, you can’t seem to achieve that glowing complexion that you’ve been after. 

The good news is that, for the majority of women, their skincare woes boil down to simple skincare mistakes that are easy to correct. 


Want to ensure you’re not making basic skincare mistakes?


Let’s review some of the most common and easy to fix skincare mistakes, so you can get the complexion of your dreams. 


  1. You’re not removing your makeup 


Let’s start off the with most common and most obvious skincare mistake that we see women make time and time again. 

We can’t stress it enough: It isessential that you remove your makeup at the end of the day,everydayTrust us, we get it, at the end of a long day, the last thing you want to do is delay crashing into your warm and inviting bed, but here’s the deal…

When you’re not taking the extra two minutes to remove your makeup, you’re opening yourself up to a much higher risk of developing acne and blemishes. 

Not only will makeup settle into your pores, if you’re not properly cleansing, any other dirt and oil buildup from your day can get trapped there too, clogging your pores, and causing pimples to form. 

Probably not what you’re looking for, right?

Make sure to always have a cleansing makeup remover on hand, like theGalaxy Detoxifying Cleanser, and you’re much less likely to encounter pesky pimples. 


  1. You’re not moisturizing after your cleanser 


Speaking of having a cleanser on hand, it’s also just as important to have a high quality moisturizer nearby, like the “Creme D’Or Daily Renewal Cream.”

But hey, what happens if you skip moisturizing or you wait a prolonged period of time to moisturize after you cleanse?

Quite simply, your skin dries out, resulting in a dull, lackluster complexion.

In particular, we highly recommend applying your moisturizer within 30 minutes of applying your cleanser to help really lock in moisture. If you wait longer than this, your skin will start to loose moisture, which we want to avoid at all possible costs. 


  1. You’re using hot water to wash your face


In addition, don’t forget, when you’re washing your face, it’s best to avoid hot water, even in the shower, if possible. 

We know how nice a hot shower can feel, but when you’re regularly applying hot water to your skin, not only does it dry the skin out, it also causes irritation, which can result in blemishes.  

Avoid unwanted blemishes by washing your face with lukewarm water. 


  1. You’re roughly scrubbing your skin 


Speaking of irritation, one of the biggest misconceptions in skincare is that if you’re struggling with acne, you need to scrub your face to help remove dirt and oil buildup.

Well, guess what? The opposite, in fact, is true. 

If you’re struggling with acne, the worst thing you can do is further irritate the skin by scrubbing harshly. 

Instead, you be excessively gentle, if you have acne concerns. Simply let your fingertips glide over your skin, and never scrub at active acne. This will only irritate your skin further, leading to more breakouts. 

No thank you. 


  1. You’re avoiding Hyaluronic Acid 


For some ladies, just the mere mention of putting “acid” on their face can send them running for the hills, but let us set you straight. 

Hyaluronic Acid is one the best absolute best things you can add to your skin lineup. 

Not only is it ridiculously moisturizing, it also helps with anti-aging, tightening up your skin, and giving it that juicy look that we’re all seeking in our complexions.You’ve got your skincare routine down, you feel like you’re doing everything right, and yet, for whatever reason, you can’t seem to achieve that glowing complexion that you’ve been after.
