It is easy to think that nobody else besides you has any skincare issues. All we see across social media are picture-perfect photographs, so we might feel like we’re the only ones. In reality, most people have the same skincare issues as you, they’re just using a filter to masque the reality and their insecurities. So, instead of relying on filters to cover up any skin irregularities, we’ll talk about effective solutions to treat your skin problems. 

Dry skin

Some people have trouble with dry skin when the seasons change, while others constantly feel like their skin is tight, dry, and flaky. The main cause is the lack of hydration, in terms of fluid intake and the type of moisturizer you use. To address this issue, drink at least two liters of water a day and use a moisturizer that has a rich texture. 

Look for a product that is designed specifically for dry skin. Make sure to remove dead skin cells with a face scrub, lather on the moisturizer, and add oil over it to lock the moisture. This can be an additional step before going to bed. This will help to hydrate your skin better so your skin will feel softer and hydrated quickly.

Oily skin

People with oily skin have a totally different problem – their skin produces too much oil. The key here isn’t to strip your face of all oil, because it will only entice your skin to produce more. The goal is to use skincare designed specifically for oily skin and to perfect your morning and evening cleansing routine. You should cleanse your face in the morning and in the evening and apply the moisturizer afterward. Use a face scrub twice weekly and try clay masks in between to further cleanse your face. Also, don’t forget to keep blotting paper on you so that you can dab excess oil throughout the day.

Sunspots

Sometimes changes on your skin are caused by exposure to the sun. These dark spots can also be remnants of acne. This only means that you need to differentiate between the two and use the right skincare. To prevent sunspots, make sure to use an SPF as high as 50 and repeatedly cover your face with it as the day goes by. 

Dark circles and eyebags

Dark circles and eyebags can be the result of a poor lifestyle – lack of sleep, poor hydration, smoking, drinking alcohol and stress. These are also genetic, so it can be just a physical trait that runs in your family and it also can be due to a natural aging process. Nonetheless, the skin underneath your eyes is delicate, so it requires proper care. Use an undereye cream to hydrate the area so it stays elastic and you’ll also minimize the appearance and progression of wrinkles. For dark circles, use a quality concealer that will slightly brighten the area so you’ll be less conscious of it and more confident in turn. Also, pay attention to your lifestyle and try to fix it.

Dull skin

If you have dull skin, it only means that it needs a bit of TLC. By now you’ve realized the importance of proper skincare, so use suitable products that work well with your skin type. Do a face scrub twice a week to remove dead skin cells and elevate your skincare a bit. If your skin looks dull, it lacks radiance, so start by incorporating vitamin C serum in your routine and radiance-boosting sheet masks. Vitamin C serum is an effective tool to boost radiance and a glowing complexion. Next, you should also try one of the popular beauty treatment services skin needling to boost collagen production and make your skin look healthier and the opposite of dull. 

Ingrown hair

Ingrown hair can be annoying and it can also lead to bumpy skin because the hair is simply stuck underneath the skin. Ingrown hair is often the result of wax hair removal treatments. Since these cannot be completely removed, there are some things you can do to minimize their occurrence. First, exfoliate often to help the hair follicle grow out. Next, after you’ve shaved or had a wax hair removal treatment, treat the skin with a product that has salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, which are useful for both your acne and ingrown hair spots on your legs or bikini area.

Acne

Ance can happen due to hormonal imbalance, hormonal changes before and after your period (also known as period acne) and poor lifestyle. Also, stress, diet, and improper skincare routine can also be a reason behind your acne breakout. 

First of all, if you have major problems with acne, you should go to a dermatologist to get proper treatment. If you’re breakouts happen occasionally, then you should pay attention to the following. Since acne is caused by oil buildup so pores become clogged and then inflamed, use a gentle cleanser twice a day that is suitable to your skin type. Don’t pop a zit as it will make it worse. Instead, use an acne treatment with benzoyl peroxide or one with salicylic acid to reduce inflammation and dissolve bacteria.

Wrinkles

The bad news – you cannot stop aging. The good news – is you can take care of your skin, and your body and rely on some antiaging techniques to reduce or slow down the appearance of wrinkles. Botox, fillers, and laser treatment are all useful antiaging techniques. But above all, invest in proper skincare, reduce stress, adopt a healthy lifestyle, and lead a rich life and you won’t even notice you have wrinkles. You won’t have the time. 

In conclusion

Besides all we’ve outlined in this article, you should also take care of your skin both on the outside and from within. The food you eat, the life you lead, the sleep schedule, habits and stress can all be why your skin is problematic. You should also work on adopting healthier habits, moving as much as possible, drinking enough fluids, and priorities your sleep over anything else. If you combine lifestyle changes with everything we’ve outlined above, you’ll give your skin what it craves and fix or at least reduce the most common skin problems.
