Hi Insiders,

            It’s hard not to “repin” a beauty mask on Pinterest that will get rid of acne once and for all.  Let’s be real, we’ve all done it and even tried it!  There are so many beauty products and remedies out there that claim to be “the best” for your skin.  So how do you know that your beauty regime isn’t hurting your skin?!  Truth be told, there are a lot of beauty products and/or remedies that may be doing more harm than help to your skin.

  • Lemon juice has been a topic of debate in the beauty world recently.  In the long run, the powerful acid may be slowly damaging your skin.  It breaks down the skins acidChelsea Crockett- sunscreen mantle, which blocks the skin from bacteria that can cause acne and/or infections.
  • Use sunscreen!!  This is one of the biggest beauty mistakes you can make.  Sun spots from overexposed skin to the sun can leave you looking older than you are.  It also protects against skin cancer.
  • Applying too many different products to your skin can cause breakouts.  Your skin does not know how to react to an overhaul of product causing irritation and confusion to your skin.  Try one product and a time to make sure it cooperates with your skin.
  • Just because you have oily skin doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use products with oil in it.  If you over wash your face and use acid based products to get rid of oil, your skin will just produce more oil.  Use a safe balance of both oil and acid when cleansing your face.

Love your skin and treat it properly!
