Overall, both Avon products are great. I love the Nutra Effects Micellar Cleansing Water a lot. It is an amazing makeup remover product and I will buy it over and over again.

The Anew Anti-Aging Cleansing Water is also a good product but I won’t be buying it again because I don’t like the way my skin feels after using it. The Nutra Effects Micellar Cleansing Water suits my skin better.

8 Skincare Mistakes You Make When You Wash Your Face

Washing your face is essential for your skincare routine. This simple step, when done properly, can keep away acne breakouts, infections and irritation. When it comes to beauty and skincare, many of us make terrible choices due to laziness/lack of information.

However, as simple as washing your face is we’ve made mistakes while giving our face a nice cleanse. Here are the top 8 skincare mistakes you might be guilty of when you wash your face.

 

Oops #1: You don’t wash your face before you sleep

Washing your face is the last thing you’d think of when you’re so exhausted, but now is time to have a rethink. Not washing your face before bedtime is a popular skincare mistake.

When you go out, you get exposed to pollution from the fumes and smoke from engines of vehicles, dust and dirt in the air and smog from factories. All these come in form of tiny particles that are small enough to get absorbed into your skin.

When you skip washing your face before bedtime, it gives a chance for those particles to cause infections that could make your skin inflamed and irritated.

 

Oops #2: You wash your face with bar soap

It’s a common sight for people to reach for a bar of soap when they want to wash their face. However, bar soap is harsh on the skin. It strips the natural oils off your skin. Your face needs the moisture to keep it hydrated. If your face is too dry it activates the sebaceous glands to produce more oils and this could lead to acne breakout. So, opt for a gentle cleanser instead to avoid this skincare mistake.

 

Oops #3: You lather and scrub your face longer than necessary

This may come as a surprise but lathering and scrubbing for too long initiates irritation, redness and even cuts. Aim for a 20-30 seconds lather or scrub. Do this in circular motions paying close attention to your T-zone and chin. Once the time is up, wash with water.

 

Oops #4: You use water that is too hot

No matter how good washing your face with hot water feels, you need to cool it down a bit. Experts say that hot water can cause your skin to dry out faster as the hot water strips your skin off its oils that keep it hydrated. So use lukewarm water to wash your face. Warm water is less damaging than steaming hot water.

Oops #5: You wash more than twice a day

Washing your face multiple times during the day could be damaging to your skin because frequent washing dries your face out and irritates your skin. Stick to washing your face twice a day (once in the morning and once at night).

An exception to this rule is when you workout as keeping the sweat on your face may cause infections.

 

Oops #6: You cleanse after using a face mask

After a nice relaxing and rejuvenating face mask, many women follow it with a cleanse to take the mask off. The ingredients in the face mask were discovered to be 300 percent more potent than serums. When you cleanse off your face mask, you cut short the hydrating and repairing effect of the mask on your skin. Instead, only use lukewarm water to remove the mask while allowing the ingredients that seeped into your skin to do their work.

 

Oops #7: You wipe your face with your towel

As strange as this may sound, it was discovered that you transfer microorganisms from your body to your face when you use the same towel you use to wipe your body after a shower. Having such microorganisms on your face can cause skin problems. It’s best to have a separate towel dedicated only for wiping your face.

 

Oops #8: You skip the early morning cleanse

Even if you washed your face at night, you must not miss the morning wash. The germs on your pillow, oil from your hair and saliva can cause your skin to breakout. That is why when you wake up in the morning you need to make sure to wash your face to remove any germs that you contacted when you were having your beauty sleep.

Also, not moisturising immediately after cleansing your face is another popular mistake. You need to moisturise as soon as you are done cleansing so your face soaks in all the moisture while damp.

 

Did any of these skincare mistakes surprise you?

Skincare – How the Environment Affects the Skin

Believe it or not, the weather can play games with the condition of your skin. When the sun decides to be generous and shines its best, your skin responds with fine lines and wrinkles. And when the weather decides to shift gear to cold fierce winds, your skin dries and cracks in response. Which is why skincare is so important.

Your skin is sensitive to the changing environment and I’m not only referring to the weather. Constant exposure to environmental pollution can make your skin inflamed and irritated.

Although you can’t control the weather or the pollution in the air, you are in control of how you can respond to your skin’s needs when it’s exposed to environmental factors that affect the skin. To help your skin handle the negative effects of the environment, you have to understand how each environmental factor affects your skin so that you know exactly what you can do to combat it.

 

Environmental Factor #1: Exposure to the Sun

Exposure to some early morning sunshine gives you a healthy dose of Vitamin D, but prolonged exposure leaves you at risk of the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays. Most people neglect to apply sunscreen before leaving the house and this increases the risk of experiencing the negative effects of ultraviolet rays.

Exposing yourself to the rays of the sun, even on a cloudy day, can make you experience wrinkles on your face and have uneven skin tone. This is because the UV rays break down collagen that is responsible for keeping your skin elastic.

A simple solution to this is to apply sunscreen even if the weather looks dull and cloudy. This will keep the UV rays at bay.

 

Environmental Factor #2: Cold and Wind

Your skin is at its best when it is moisturized. But cold weather or exposure of your skin to harsh wind can strip your skin of moisture and leave your skin dry. When your skin is dry it can get irritated.

The best way to deal with the dryness and irritation that comes with the cold and wind is to hydrate your skin. Apply more moisturizer or a hydrating serum that contains hyaluronic acid when the weather is starting to get cold. Make sure that you also take plenty of water so that you also hydrate your skin from within.

 

Environmental Factor #3: Exposure to pollution

Dust, smoke and smog are a familiar sight in big cities and it’s inevitable.  They are also the cause of premature aging, inflammation and other skin conditions. Free radicals are generated from environmental pollution. This is because the pollution particles penetrate into the skin and break down the collagen and elastin that is responsible for giving you beautiful and healthy skin.

Because of this, it is advisable to double cleanse your skin in the night when your skin regenerates. Make use of skincare products that contain antioxidants that will help fight the free radicals created by environmental pollution. To take your skincare regime up a notch, you should make sure you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidants.

 

How do you protect your skin from the environment?
