Breakouts are a fact of life and can happen for a number of reasons. But, if your skin is usually pretty clear and you begin noticing more blemishes than normal, your skincare could be the culprit. The skin on our face is super sensitive and spots, bumps and lumps could be a reaction to harsh products it doesn’t like. Try swapping for a gentler product.
5 signs you’re using the wrong products for your skin
You’re following every skincare guru on Instagram’s advice, you’ve bought all the latest products and you’re dedicating more time to your skincare routine than you are your career and social life combined but your skin just isn’t playing ball.
If this sounds familiar then there’s a high chance it’s because you’re using the wrong products for your skin.
Now we’re well and truly in lockdown number three (or is it four? We’ve lost count) and once again with more time on our hands (just please, no more baking banana bread) many of us will start to experiment with our skincare and test new products.
While it’s always a great idea to try new things and switch up your routine if you start to notice any of the following symptoms it’s time to stop what you’re doing and strip your skincare back to basics.
