Have you ever wondered why even after spending thousands of rupees on skincare, you’re still breaking out? When it comes to skincare, you have to make smart choices. If you buy products for your skincare routine without doing any research, you’ll end up putting your skin at risk and waste your money. So, before building a skincare routine, determine your skin type first and then look for products that will match your skin type. Here are a few other reasons why your skincare routine is probably not working the way you want it to:

1. Too Many Active Ingredients

The phrase“too many cooks spoil the broth” applies when you’re building your skincare routine. Active ingredients like retinol should be used carefully since they can react with other ingredients. So make sure the ingredients in your skincare products don’t react with each other.

2. Wrong Products

What works for someone else may not work for you; it all depends on your skin type. So consult a dermatologist and find out more about your skin type and get recommendations from them. To be on the safer side, stick to ingredients that are fragrance-free and alcohol-free. When I cut out products with fragrance and alcohol, I noticed a significant change in the way my skin looks and feels.

3. Incorrect Order

There’s a correct order in which you apply skincare products, and it usually goes from the lightest skincare texture to the heaviest. So if you’re applying your skincare products in the incorrect order, your skin won’t be able to reap the benefits of your skincare products.

Keep these pointers in mind and make sure to revaluate your skincare routine.
