Nowadays, the internet is piled up with DIY techniques, remedies or tips for all sorts of things including skin care. They may or may not work wonders for you depending upon the skin type that you have, but here we have enlisted a few of them that are in NO way paving your way for a better looking skin.
Many people all over the world apply a tinge of toothpaste on the skin, mainly to fry out that ugly looking acne. Though it is logical to put something cold on what’s born out of heat in the body, it can also work the other way round, and irritate the skin to an extent of causing burns or even leaving scars.
It may have come across that a lot of home remedies for skin care talk about applying hairspray on the silly pimple on your face, well yes, it will dry out the acne and get rid of it but if it isn’t your lucky day today it may also clog the pores of your skin and add up to the irritation.
Those people who love hot, steamy showers should be careful because everything in excess can lead to many troubles. Too much of hot water baths can end up softening and attacking the protective shield of your skin. This may cause the moisture to escape and lead to dryness.
Vaseline is mostly used to keep dried out skin under control. When you use it on your skin it initially makes your skin soft and moisturized but applying too much of it can lead to more number of pimples and dry condition later on.
There is a reason it is called body Lotion because it is for the Body and not the face. The skin on your body is thicker and more resistant than that of your face. This means that the body lotion is actually more aromatic than moisturizing.
Most people use sugar as a scrub and they make facial scrubs as well, but it may come as a surprise that it can actually end up doing more harm than good. As mentioned above, the skin on your body is more elastic and thick than that of your face. Sugar may do wonders for your feet or body but can cause impairment to your facial skin.
Hydrogen peroxide is largely used to prevent the spread of infections of minor cuts and burns, but it should NOT be used to treat acne as it can cause inflammation and various other allergic reactions on the skin.
Avoid the consumption of alcohol not only to protect your liver, but also for better skin care. Even though we all use alcohol on an open wound to prevent the infection from spreading, we should never apply it on our face because it may dissolve our skin cells leaving you with dead skin cells and a very unhealthy skin.
