Not every one knows about skin care. Yes, we know we’re supposed to wash our face, and moisturize, but there’s way more to skin care than just that.
Here are the 4 of the most common mistakes that women do when taking care of their skin.

Mistake 1 Washing your face with your body soap

Soaps dry your skin. It’s true that they make the skin absolutely clean and bright, they remove the blackheads, but the true is that the soap harms your skin. The soap stimulates the secretion of the sebaceous glands, which means more blackheads formation after every cleansing.
You had better use a tonic, cleansing lotion or gels that are specially designed for facial cleansing.

Mistake 2 Not removing the makeup in the evening
There is no need to say how harmful this is for your skin – the deep-rooted during the day dust, powder, mascara, makeup and the natural skin secretions remain on the skin during the whole night and the result is a sad consequences – clogged pores, pimples formation, acceleration of oils and most importantly your skin cannot” breathe” .
The reason for not removing the makeup usually is the late going to bed. That’s why you should keep a pack of wet cleansing wipes on your bedside table or you can simple remove the makeup earlier. Cleanse the face with cleansing milk, tonic or gel, apply night cream and enjoy a calm night.
It’s the same and for the boys – the facial cleansing isn’t just for the girls.

Mistake 3Not applying eye cream
The eye area is the first to show any signs of ageing. In this area the skin is most delicate and forms wrinkles easily. Applying an eye cream is especially essential for those over 25. That’s why you should choose appropriate for you eye cream and apply it both in the morning and in the evening

Mistake 4 Not using the right type of skincare cleanser
Before you put any thing on your face, try to find out what skin type you are. Are you oily, dry, combination? It’s extremely important to decipher what your skin type is because you don’t want to risk getting a break out on your face.

 I’ve tried everything from Pond’s to Prescriptives to Proactive products…I’ve tried alot just so I can find something accomadating to my skin. I have combination skin (sometimes dry and oily) and yes, I do break out. I have the most sensitive skin EVER!!!But I’ve found one product that helps me

 The picture above shows a five-piece set of Skintelligence, which is the perfect way to build a lasting foundation for beautiful skin that will last a lifetime. Includes Hydra Derm Deep-Cleansing Emulsion, pH Skin Normalizer, Daily Moisture Enhancer, Cellular Perfecting Complex and Facial Firming Masque. I wear this under my makeup, and it doesn’t give that “sweaty” look that you get after a long day of wearing foundation.  This is by far, the best facial products that I’ve found for sensitive skin. Of course, every one’s skin is different. You just have to find something that suits yours.
