|This beauty has a big smile now that she knows how to keep her complexion from over reacting to products.|
With the constant improvements in skin care technology, we are using more advanced products than ever as we cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and renew our complexions to delay the aging process, minimize lines, and perfect texture. Though as wonderful as that may be, it also has become more common to find your complexion reacting with all the overlapping or overdoing of products, hoping to speed up complexion results. However, here are some basic things that can help you avoid upsetting your skin, especially for easily irritated complexions.
To keep the skin from overreacting, the best rule to follow is to avoid using various active, acid-based products together from different lines at the same time. You’ll have a better chance of preventing a flare-up of your complexion when sticking to one line over several.
In our rush for more beautiful skin, you may be tempted to give yourself more treatments or leave on acid-based products like chemical or enzyme peels on longer than the directions advise. The same rule holds true for using sloughing bead exfoliating scrubs too frequently. Both such practices can anger the skin for those with easily irritated complexions. What you can be doing is possibly damaging your complexion with more than excessive redness that could result in a scar. Following the directions are the best way to keep that skin calm.
