Are you treating your skin as well as you think?
Falling into a bad habit isn’t always noticeable. Sometimes, it can just be the result of receiving some bad information somewhere along the way. We understand – it’s happened to all of us at some point or another in our lives. Based on some of the top skin care routine mistakes we’ve encountered at Artistry, we’ve put together this 4-question quiz to help you identify and optimize your skin care routine!
In which order are you supposed to use and apply your skin care system?
Cleanser, Toner, Treatment Products, Moisturizer.
It’s a common misconception that you should apply your treatment products last. It’s important that they are applied prior to the moisturizer, as the moisturizer will act as a seal to keep the treatment product where it is needed.
Which finger should you be using to apply your eye cream?
Your ring finger.
I know it’s easy to dab your pointer finger into your product and rub it in. However, with the skin around your eye being as thin as onion skin, it’s crucial that you use your weakest finger to lightly dab and blend in the cream. This will be much less likely to cause premature aging from tugging and pulling.
Should you skip moisturizers if you have oily or acne prone skin?
Dry, flaky skin and clogged pores are a huge irritant to acne and a cause of oil overproduction. If your skin is exceptionally oily, use a light or oil control lotion if you’d like. Just please don’t skip moisturizer!
Should you wash your face every night, even if you didn’t wear much makeup that day?
It is 100% necessary to wash your face clean of makeup, even on light wear days. Sleeping in makeup not only clogs your delicate pores, but it causes premature aging. It also makes your pillow case chock full of bacteria!
Carefully and thoroughly wash your face every night!
We recommend gentle exfoliation using ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Advanced Creamy Foam Cleanser twice a day for a clean and radiant complexion. Its patented oat extract leaves skin feeling smooth, hydrated, and comfortable.
