Beauty Bloggers Interview Part 1: What’s the most common mistake people make when caring for their skin?
In this series of Beauty Bloggers Interviews, we interview top beauty/lifestyle bloggers in Singapore to answer our burning questions on aesthetics and all things beauty.
In today’s post, we ask them: What’s the most common mistake people make when caring for their skin?
Most women tend to apply too many products at one time.

In skincare treatment, less is more. Imagine piling on many different types of products on your skin; this is counterproductive. To ensure healthy skin, avoid using too many products. You don’t need to use pricey facial creams just to have vibrant skin. Stick to one product or better, apply natural remedies to ensure that no chemicals can get in touch with your skin.
A big mistake people make when caring for their skin is to address just the skin on the face and not treat the skin on the body.

Our body skin is also prone to signs of ageing, dryness, cellulite, and uneven texture. Therefore, it is important to focus not only in cleansing and moisturizing the skin on the face but also the entire parts of our body. Dry brushing is one of the best ways to improve skin texture in the body.
One of the best body treatments in Singapore is coolsculpting. It can destroys fats permanently in 1 hour, even stubborn fats. Coolsculpting is clinically proven by FDA to be an approved fat reduction procedure.
Being too harsh and using products which have too many chemicals.

Our skin is one of the most sensitive parts of our body. Using chemicals can lead to skin irritation and rashes. Protect your skin from harmful chemicals by consulting a dermatologist to find out what’s best for your skin.
Not understanding what kind of skin type they have, therefore, using the wrong products that are not suitable for their skin.
~ Gwendolyn Cheong, http://gwendolynme.blogspot.com/
Because of this lack of understand, the skin reacts to the product and they look worst, flare up and you end up feeling disappointed as the products are not doing what they claim. Before you use any skin product, make sure you know your skin type. Knowing your skin type will help you identify the appropriate skin product to use.
Choosing an inappropriate formulated skincare product for each individual’s skin type.
~ Nira Chan, http://www.nirachan.net/
Be aware of the misleading, false, or exaggerated skin products claims. Most companies nowadays are investing a lot on advertisements to promote their products. If you are a consumer, make sure you know how their products work. You can checkout reviews and approvals from dermatologists. Do not let yourself be deceived by what they present or say.
Not checking what works best for their individual skin type and overwhelming it with products that may be too rich.
~ June, http://www.junedujour.com/
I feel that less is more; your face is a sensitive area so do let it rest when you can (AKA makeup less). Learn to find the best product that is appropriate for your skin type. And don’t forget to do the basic skin regimen like toning and moisturizing to maintain a healthy and vibrant skin.
Washing their skin in hot water which is harsh and drying to the skin.
~ Patricia, http://sweetestsins.blogspot.sg/
This is not a good skin care practice. Washing your skin with a hot water can lead to dryness. Instead of doing this, try to wash your face with a lukewarm water to break down the dirt and soothe the skin.
They think that it’s OK to sleep with makeup on. It’s not.
~ Jade Isabelle Liang, http://www.jadeisabelle.com/
According to Dr. Schweiger, sleeping with your makeup on can cause a long lasting damage to your skin. Your pores are clogged and this can lead to the formation of microcomedone, which attracts acne-causing bacteria. Make sure to wash your face with a good skin care product before you sleep to avoid such skin disease.
I’m guilty of this: using facial products for acne/oily skin even when your skin has more or less cleared up.
~ Fiona, http://fionaseah.com/
Such products tend to be on the dry side and will hence absorb more moisture from the face, leaving one with fine flakes and dry patches all over the skin. So it’s always good to have 2 kinds of facial products on standby – one for your original skin type (dry/combination) and another for your bad skin days.
Using premium skincare products will give you the best skin.

Everyone has different skin types and you need to go through trial and error to find one that is the most suitable for you, only then will you see greater results. Do some testing on the different products to find out which works best in your skin.[sgmb id=1]
