Skin care has become one of those topics that a lot of people think they know everything about. The problem is, they don’t. There is so much skin care advice out there right now that it has become extremely difficult to find out which one to listen to and which one to simply ignore. Skin care advice is actually the most difficult to offer because it’s extremely personal. It depends on your type of skin, personal preferences, and many other important factors. This is why we have asked some professional skin care experts about the best and worst skin care advice they have ever heard.

As a professional, when you go around hearing people telling other people to do this or that, you feel like you want to explode. When you are not a professional, you sometimes fall into this trap and listen to what other people are saying. Unfortunately, skin care is a very delicate subject and one that requires your full attention. You should not take skin care procedures and products lightly because the wrong idea can bring a series of unwanted problems with it. So, here are some of the best and worst skin care advice that professionals have ever heard. Enjoy!

Best skin care advice

Marie Kapetanakis, the founder of the company Kosmea, says that the best advice that she has ever heard is to keep skin care simple. Over cleansing or over exfoliating your skin can sometimes do more harm than good. Most importantly, moisturizing your skin is the key to everything. Never forget that!

Also, Irene Falcone, who is the founder of toxin-free beauty company Nourished Life, says that the best advice that she has ever heard is to always apply a night cream before going to bed. Because the skin rejuvenates three times faster overnight, a night cream or serum can make all the difference in the world as to how we look the next day.

Another important piece advice would be to wear sunscreen when going out, even if it’s cloudy. It’s recommended to wear SPF 15 or above every day. UV rays are the most common cause of premature skin aging and skin cancer. It’s also incredibly necessary to apply the sunscreen on your neck, chest, and the backs of your hands too! Don’t let the harmful UV rays reach your skin because you might regret it later.

Worst skin care advice

When it comes to the worst skin care advice she has ever heard, Irene Falcone has a story about one too. She has heard many people say that water and soap is all you need for good skin care. Actually, only using soap is the worst thing that you can do because it dries out your skin.

Tarj Mavi, the founder of organic skincare brand La Mav, says that the worst advice would be to exfoliate your skin daily. On the contrary, too much exfoliation destroys the cells of your skin. You should only do it twice a week. Also, the myth about expensive skin care products being better is not true. While this may sometimes be the case, it’s not a rule. You simply need to look for the product that works best for you, regardless of its price.
