Common Skincare Routine Mistakes
At a minimum most of us will use a moisturiser as part of our skincare routine. These products vary in price and quality from under €10 to brands costing hundreds of euro. Whatever the monetary cost, using the incorrect products for your skin type can result in dull, unhealthy looking skin and can lead to unwanted skin conditions that could have been avoided.
Knowing your correct skin type is essential when it comes to choosing a moisturiser. Those with dry skin will need a moisturiser with extra lipids to help retain moisture within the skin, while those with oily skin need a light emulsion, with less than 10% lipids, that won’t overload the skin with oil.
