9 Beauty Treatments That You Should Not Do Too Often

Are you familiar with the phrase – too much of good stuff is bad stuff? Well, like everything else, it also applies to your skin care routine. Unfortunately, most of us are over enthusiastic about skin care sometimes, while being too lazy to even remove makeup other times. Either way, you are destroying your skin more than you know. While every book, article and blog you read will suggest that you follow a healthy skincare routine, overdoing these beauty treatments can give way to rashes and skin pigments. Here in this article, we have discussed some of the most common treatments that are well advertised but should not be done frequently. Read on to know them all.

1. Hair Treatments

A keratin hair treatment is a staple for most of us since it helps us achieve the silky, smooth, and shining locks we dream of. It’s great for particular occasions, but there are certain drawbacks to making it a habit. Formaldehyde, a chemical in these therapies, has been linked to adverse effects on the eyes, respiratory system, and brain (1). There is a chance it might even cause cancer (2). In conclusion, routine treatments that include breathing formaldehyde fumes should be avoided at all costs.

2. Manicures And Pedicures

Pay close attention to the cleanliness of the salon and the instruments used to clean your nails the next time you go there for a manicure or pedicure. Infections caused by using a dirty tub or tools like nail files, cuticle cutters, and clippers. They can spread germs, viruses, and fungi. Keep away from gel manicures since they might cause you to be exposed to harmful UV rays, harm your nail cuticles, and weaken your nail bed. Nail buffing, which is done to achieve a glossy appearance, can cause nails to become brittle since it involves the removal of a layer of the nail.

3. Exfoliation

Scrubbing/exfoliating the skin is the most effective method for removing dead cells, but only if done routinely. The skin can’t rejuvenate if you exfoliate every other day. Too much early exfoliation really causes skin damage. Furthermore, excessive exfoliation can inflame the skin, reducing its barrier function and leaving it more susceptible to infection.

4. Fish Pedicures

Fish pedicures might be relaxing for some, but they can harm your health. The water in a fish tank should be changed and disinfected regularly to prevent the spread of diseases. The fish, though, poses a much bigger threat. Fish are not as easily sterilized as nail clippers or files. Thus they pose a health risk when used on several customers without proper disinfection. Be wary of the water quality in the area from where you intend to have the little fish chew away dead skin cells off of your toes. Finally, do not have a fish pedicure if you have a cut or wound on your leg.

5. Fake Eyelashes

Fake eyelashes are a cherry on top of your heavy eye makeup look. But, if you regularly wear false eyelashes, you might want to stop doing it. Although it might make your eyes seem better, prolonged usage of the adhesive that holds the false lashes in place can cause you to lose your natural eyelashes. It’s best to save them for events rather than make them part of your daily routine.

6. Anti-Aging Creams

Retinol, the prime ingredient used in anti-aging creams, penetrates deeply into the dermis and stimulates collagen formation. It has been shown to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles over time. However if retinol is exposed to the sun, it will cause your skin to burn and increase the chances of inflammation.

7. Over Moisturizing

Throughout the day, your skin loses some of the moisture that helps it keep fresh and young. So applying lotion once a day can do the trick. However, doing it more than necessary can clog pores and make your skin feel greasy and attract dust to it.

8. Face-Waxing And Face-Laser Treatments

Depending on how vigorously your facial was exfoliated, an aesthetician will tell you when it is safe to do hair removal on your face. Waxing, in particular, exfoliates the epidermis, but excessive exfoliation increases the likelihood that the wax may lift the skin, leaving you with an unsightly scab.

9. Sauna

While it’s tempting to use the sauna after a skin treatment, doing so is really harmful for your skin. Keep away from saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs for at least 24 hours after your facial. Your facial steaming session has already left your skin extremely porous, and any more steaming increases the risk of irritation and broken capillaries.

So now you know how harmful overindulging in skin and hair treatments can be. But that does not mean you leave skin care out of the picture altogether? The trick is to keep everything within limits and not overdo anything. For example, you can stick to a regular skin cleansing and moisturizing treatment every day, treat your hair once in 3 months and do a pedicure every month with clean tools. So, which of these treatments is your personal favorite? Let us know in the comments section!

Bayas

Recomiendo una porci√≥n diaria de  bayas  (media taza fresca o congelada, o un cuarto de taza seca) y tres porciones diarias de otras frutas (una fruta de tama√Īo mediano, una fruta cortada en taza, o un cuarto de taza seca).  ¿Por qu√© selecciono las bayas? Ar√°ndano Frambuesa Fresa Grosella Espinosa Grosella Negra Grosella Roja Baya de Acai Baya de Gota B√©rbero Las bayas son las frutas m√°s saludables, debido en parte a sus pigmentos vegetales. Evolucionaron para tener colores brillantes y contrastantes que atraen a las criaturas que comen frutas para ayudar a dispersar sus semillas, y las mismas caracter√≠sticas moleculares que dan a las bayas esos colores tan vibrantes pueden explicar algunas de sus capacidades antioxidantes. Las bayas est√°n en segundo lugar, despu√©s de las hierbas y las especias, como la categor√≠a de alimentos con mayor contenido de antioxidantes.
