When I was younger I basically didn't even think about my skincare. I have always been pretty lucky to have decent skin. As I started getting a bit older, I knew I needed to make some changes. I found a skincare routine, started using sunscreen, and prioritized my skin. The older I get, the more important it is to take care of my skin.

We all want to look and feel healthy. So it’s no surprise that our skin condition is a big part of that. Our skin can be the biggest indicator of how we are feeling both inside and out. However, many people get it wrong when it comes to their skincare. So I thought it would be a good idea to share with you some of the things many people get wrong and how you can change that. I hope it sets you on the right track for younger healthier looking skin.

Overcomplicating things. 

Many people try too hard when it comes to their skincare. They may use many different products. All will have different properties or accolades of what they can do for your skin. But the thing is, your skin doesn’t need lots of fancy products. Sometimes just simplifying your routine could be the secret to a more flawless complexion. So take a look at the products you use and try and downscale it. 

Not considering what they put into their bodies

Your skin can be affected by the food you eat. So it’s crazy not to consider your diet when it comes to good skin care. Many people forget that this is exactly one of the reasons that could affect your skin's look. Food like sugary sweets, cakes, and desserts can all be bad for your skin's complexion. But also some foods can cause you to get sensitive skin. Things like dairy products and gluten-based ingredients. Take a look at your diet and try and increase the amount of fruit and vegetables you eat each day. 

Avoiding treatments that can aid your skin's appearance

Many people think that certain skin treatments are not so great for your skin. But this is where some people go wrong. Sometimes these treatments, like dermatology consultations, can help improve your skin condition. As well as the look of your complexion. It’s not all about getting things done for cosmetic reasons, sometimes your skin's health requires it. Sometimes you need to think about cosmetic skin care treatments that could help improve things. 

Drinking too much alcohol and caffeine

Your skin can be affected by the amount of alcohol and caffeine you drink. Which is where many people go wrong. They are a stimulant and have a way of drying out your skin. Making it appear tired and aging. Try and limit your intake to improve your skin's condition and look. If you can, increase the amount of water you drink. This can have a real positive effect on your skin’s condition. 

Not getting enough sleep at night

Finally, when you burn the candle at both ends, your skin is a big indication of it. This is why getting more hours of sleep is a great way to improve your complexion. Lack of sleep can reduce dark circles around the eyes. Getting more sleep allows your body to regenerate the skin cells, making you appear more alert and youthful. 

I hope this has highlighted some of the areas you could be going wrong in when it comes to looking after your skin.

Do you have a favorite skincare routine or favorite product you use?
