5 Common Skin Care Mistakes

  1. Skipping SPF

Don’t leave the house without it! Sunscreen, even if you don’t bask in direct sunlight, should be applied daily. For the body, a shot glass sized application is recommended for every 40-80 minutes of exposure. 90% of wrinkles originate from sun exposure – We recommend our Daily Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA+++ ($25) to keep your skin protected and healthy.


SPF math:  Minutes to burn without sunscreen X SPF number = maximum sun exposure time

Example: If after 10 minutes of sun exposure, you experience burning, multiply 10 by the SPF. 10 minutes x SPF 15 = 150 minutes, or 2 ½ hours of sun protection. After 150 minutes have passed in direct sunlight, be sure to reapply another layer of sunscreen!

2. Over-Exfoliation

Exfoliation can leave skin feeling amazingly smooth and flawless – but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Over-exfoliating can cause irritation, dryness, and hinder growing skin cells from reaching maturity. Polishing off the top layer of skin a few times a week can result in radiant, healthy skin. Exfoliating 1-3 times a week gives skin the chance to heal, rehydrate and regulate cell production. For a gentle yet effective sloughing of the skin, we recommend our Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder ($36).


3. Oily skin needs hydration too!

Even oilier skin types need moisture! In the absence of moisture post-cleanse, skin can actually produce more oil to compensate for the lack of hydration. Moisturizing morning and night will regulate skin’s oil production, and help regulate and control sebum production. Our Oil-free Daily Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 15 ($36) controls excess oil and is good for all skin types. This doesn’t mean oily skins should stray away from products containing oil ingredients. Many are not aware that oil breaks up oil – don’t be afraid to opt for an oil to achieve your most radiant, beautiful skin! Try our Tsubaki Beauty Oil ($46) which provides the perfect amount of hydration to leave skin smoother, softer, and more supple.


4. Forgetting to Break-up the Makeup!

After a long day, washing your face may not register as a priority. Cleansed skin before you hit the sheets will prevent makeup and pore-clogging debris from irritating skin, and triggering breakouts overnight. Getting into the routine of cleansing your face nightly will result in clearer, healthier skin! For a quick, thorough cleanse, our MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil ($28) combined with our Konjac Cleansing Cloth ($15) makes makeup removal a breeze!


5. Not enough zzz’s or H2O!

Believe it or not, the amount of sleep and the amount of water you drink play a huge role in skin’s overall health. Dehydration can cause skin to appear dull and dry, but getting the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep can keep skin looking bright and enlivened. Our Super-Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm ($26) works wonders for those mornings requiring a little ‘pick-me-up’!
