Does it happen that you do not know where to start your routine skin care? Many girls prefer not to wear one because the order for the application of the products seems too confusing, since between magazines, tutorials on YouTube and others, we end up with more doubts than before. So a simple advice that we can give you is to remove make-up, clean and tone, and apply the most liquid formulas first to leave the densest at the end.

2. You don't know how to apply the products correctly

We have seen it millions of times in that way, which is the "correct" and best way for our skin, and as the "experts" say, we follow this trend, applying cream products or serums in a circular way on the skin … But what you should actually do is apply it upwards from the beginning of the neck to the hairline in the forehead area.

3. Do you know what your skin needs?

Another thought that we tend to have unconsciously is that we can only have one type of routine skin care, Which is completely false; That your skin is oily or sensitive does not mean that you should always focus on those needs, because you forget that depending on the climate your skin changes and others may arise to attend, so pay attention and use the correct products for your skin type according to Whatever you need.

4. You think that if your skin is oily you should not moisturize it

To all of us who have oily skin this has happened to us at some point, we believe that because our skin is oily, the least we should do is apply creams and serums Because we will shine like the sun throughout the day, but it is completely false, because the only thing you achieve is that your skin generates more sebum than normal, so only choose the correct products that are generally water-based. You really are going to notice the difference.

5. You don't deep clean your face

If you are one of those girls who believe that by having used a make-up remover wipe you have already removed all the dirt, let me tell you that it is not, because the point of cleaning the face is to remove any impurities or dirt that may cause an acne or pimple breakout because the pores are clogged. The most recommendable thing is to do a double cleaning, the first one with oil and the second one with some aqueous cleaner.

6. The neck is an important area!

7. You are not constant

We only damage our skin, so you know: a routine of skin care it is an art.

9. Drink water only when you are thirsty
