It’s great to have a skin care routine that you follow every day. Do you want to take care of your skin and make sure it’s always glowing. But what if you are making some mistakes?
The team at ÈZE prepared this article to help you identify common skincare mistakes you could be doing and how to avoid them:
- Sleeping with make-up on
This one should be a no-brainer, but we get it, life is busy and sometimes we just want to hit our head on the pillow and forget to take our makeup off.
But this can can lead to clogged pores, blackheads and blemishes and will also block your essences, serums, treatments or moisturizers from absorbing properly.
At ÈZE you made it easier for you to remember to take your makeup off before bedtime, with the dynamic duo Cleansique & Mistique. A luxurious, soap-free cleanser followed by a refreshing and energizing toning mist.
It's your “me time” before bed, and you’ll feel so relaxed and luxurious afterwards that you will never again forget to take your makeup off!
2. Sleeping On A Cotton Pillowcase
Did you know that pressing your face into a cotton pillowcase causes trauma to the skin and causes creases as your collagen breaks down?
That is why we advise you to switch to a silk or satin pillowcase. They present a kinder and cleaner surface for resting your cheek.
They can generally help to reduce frizz and hair breakages and to keep your skin looking its best!
3. Only Moisturizing at Night
Many women only moisturize their skin at night, and not in the morning after they wash their face.
This very often happens because they are applying make-up in the morning and think the moisturizer will over saturate / over moisturize their skin and keep their make up from staying on.
At ÈZE we recommend two things:
First, make sure you wait a few minutes to let the moisturizer set in before applying your makeup.
And second, we recommend you use our moisturizer Bonjour, which gives skin a softer, smoother and firmer texture as well as a glowing complexion.
Is also is the perfect moisturizer to apply every morning before make-up because it is very lightweight. Try it, you’ll love it!
4. Not Wearing Sunscreen Daily
Many people believe that sunscreen is only for the summer months or for the beach. Wrong!
Applying sunscreen every day should be top priority in your skincare daily routine, if you want to avoid fast skin aging.
The sun speeds up the aging process (referred to as “photo-aging”) by contributing to fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dark spots and even skin cancer.
Sunscreen is essential ALL YEAR ROUND!
5. Washing With Very Hot or Cold Water
Taking a super hot shower in the winter might feel great, especially after a workout, but hot water can strip the skin of its natural moisturizing oils and dry it out.
This is also true of excessively cold water, too.
Always wash your skin using lukewarm water to avoid dryness and moisturize your skin afterwards to replenish hydration.
6. Not using a serum before the moisturizer
Designed to nourish, protect, and hydrate your skin, a face serum is a great next step after cleansing and before moisturizing.
Because a serum is lighter and delivers active ingredients to the skin quickly, it goes on first, after you’ve cleansed your skin.
But you also need to seal the serum to maximize the benefits, which is why a moisturizer or face cream is the next step.
Think of a serum as the secret weapon for treating skin issues like discoloration, dullness, fine lines, or acne — and a moisturizer as the key to hydrating your skin.
ÈZE’s Voilà! is a hydrating serum that also contains hyaluronic acid, a molecule that physically binds water in the skin to make it look fresh, plump, and younger.
While exfoliation is a great way to remove the build-up of dead skin cells for smoother, brighter skin, over-exfoliation can be super damaging to the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
If you see any signs of over-exfoliation (dry/tight skin, redness, flakiness, sensitivity and bumpy skin texture), reduce how often you exfoliate or consider adjusting your exfoliation products to more gentle options.
8. Not Being Consistent In Your Skin Care
Again, we understand, life is busy and sometimes other things take priority.
But to have a glowing and healthy skin is important to make our skincare routine a top priority and be consistent every day.
And sometimes less is more! Even if you only just stick to the basics: cleanse, moisturize, sunscreen, that is better than being inconsistent and your skin will thank you!
9. Not Applying a Specific Nighttime product
Many people apply the same moisturizer at nighttime that they apply in the morning.
But the needs of our skin at night are very different. In the morning we need to moisturize and create a base for our make up and sunscreen.
At night our skin is able to repair and regenerate itself. So in order to help your skin do that, you need a specific nighttime product.
CRÈME DE LUNE is an intensive rejuvenating nighttime treatment that improve the texture, tone and firmness of your skin while you sleep!
This intensive revitalizing and replenishing formula with high levels of CoQ10 will help rejuvenate and perfectly balance and moisturize your skin so you start the day looking youthful, rested, and restored.
10. Not Knowing What You Are Putting on Your Skin
