Things I wish I knew earlier about skincare

things I learned throughout my skincare journey
 Share your version of “I wish I knew earlier” down here 
 Skincare is a long-term investment. Don’t give up on them too early because consistency is key. You will look back ten years for now and thank yourself for all the time and money you invest in yourself 
 There is no quick fix, especially for acne. Your acne didn’t develop overnight, and it won’t go away that fast either. So, stop buying products that promise an instant cure  
 DIY skincare is (mostly) never a good idea. I would never ever put that lemon or baking soda on my face ever again. There is so much misleading information online related to "natural-DIY" skincare and you should double-check the information before you do anything crazy on your skin 
 You don’t need a multiple-step routine to fulfill your skin's basic needs. You just need a few ‘right’ products to provide the basic need, everything else is just an extra. Do it only when it adds joy to your routine

I really wish I knew to avoid physical exfoliants! I used to use st Ives scrubs and scrub really hard thinking it would make my acne go away ( in my defence they always marketed it to work for acne). But now I’ve learned that being gentle with your skin is whats most important! go slow, use lower percentage actives! 🥰

I wish I wore sunscreen as a kid but I was a serious sun addict always at the beach. Now I have hyperpigmentation that has plagued me since my twenties from the damage I did to my skin. 🤷🏻‍♀️
