why skincare ingredients fail

When products with good skin care ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, Retinol and Vitamin C fail we lose confidence and shy away from future spending on products we feel don’t work. This makes sense, why would we pay large amounts of money for something that doesn’t work? But is the product to blame or is it user error? Maybe both? Here are some reasons why the top skin care products fail:



1) Over Exfoliating – While it can have positive results, over exfoliating can cause the skin to be irritated, dry, sensitive and red. It can also cause broken blood vessels. Be sure to be gentle when exfoliating and use a product that will exfoliate without compromising the skin barrier. Thalgo has a gentle yet effective exfoliator perfect for even sensitive skin. It will nourish the skin and give it the healthy glow that it’s meant to have.


2) Under Cleansing – Basically the opposite of over exfoliating. Failing to cleanse the skin every night can lead to acne, clogged pores and premature aging. Gently cleanse the skin 1-2 times per day. Before bed for sure. Failing to cleanse can actually cause premature aging. If cleansing and toning is too much, try Thalgo Micellar Cleansing Water. With Sève Bleue from the Oceans, it removes make-up as it cleanses and tones the face and eyes in a single step. Suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive. No sticky residue and it’s scent free.


3) Stress – Worrying or stressing can have more than just a negative effect on your skin. It can also cause hair loss and weak brittle nails. Stress can also cause break outs making the skin more sensitive and prone to acne. Exercise, meditate, and practice yoga to help reverse the signs of stress and begin living a stress free life.


4) Lack of Sleep – The negative effects of lack of sleep are many. Sleep gives the body a chance to repair the damage caused by the day and helps the body heal itself. There are many helpful resources about sleep and the benefits it has to your health.  


5) Poor Diet – Nothing will make your skin look worse than feeding your body with junk. Everything we eat has an effect on our health and also our skin. Choose products you would be proud to feed your children. Stay away from food filled with trans fats and sugar. Nourish your body and your skin with foods that are natural and clean with no preservatives.


6) Skipping Sun Care – Even the best ingredients and the best skin care regimen are no match for unprotected skin that is exposed to the sun. In fact, that healthy glow you may think you are achieving is actually causing premature aging and permanent damage. Make no mistake, the most expensive and best skin care ingredients cannot do their job if you are not protecting your skin from the sun. Daily sunscreen is a must even when the skies are grey.
