Skin Care Strategies
Saving Face: The Must NOT to Do!

Skin Care Strategies Let's be honest, we've all gotten carried away or gone astray employing strategies while caring for our skin.

Many times, with less than desirable results which we then have to go to great lengths to hide or camoflauge.

And in some case, with rather ugly and catastrophic consequences.

Of course, enthusiasm can get the best of all us at one time or another and that brilliant idea can back fire in a blink of an eye.

Learning to avoid disaster when addressing those more troublesome issues is a matter of knowing when to. . .

STOP. . . get up and walk away!

Shorten that learning curve by becoming familiar with the myriad of pitfalls to avoid at all costs before embarking on implementing those questionable skin care strategies.

Take that pleasant facial you've planned for yourself for instance. . .

Thought it made sense just to stick your face over that huge pot of boiling pasta water for a quick steam? Surprised that your skin has turned bright red all over and is just a bit tender?

A steam burn can take quite a while to heal and boy does it HURT!

As a general rule- don't pick- for any reason, at any time. The outcome is rarely good What started out to be just a little squeeze of that blossoming blemish suddenly turned into a major excavation project, leaving a crater bigger than the State of Texas.

If you've been known to get a bit out of control, one word of advice, Bacitracin. It doesn't seem to matter that you know that diving in and digging into those blemishes can actually create a huge mess, possible scarring, not to mention many long days of healing. It is simply irresistible to some and they can't stop once they start.

Train yourself, despite the enormous restraint it might require, to gently squeeze then leave!

Skin Care Strategies 2 While we're on the topic of blemishes, for goodness sake skin care strategies never include sticking a pin into a blemish. Put that needle down! STOP! Just turn around, walk away and don't even think of it. No good will come of it as you well know.

Isn't more better? Chant to yourself that more is not necessarily better in skin care. . .

Okay, one of your grandmother's skin care strategies might have been to shave her chin and her dark mustache, but it is important to correlate that strategy with the fact that she now has dark, stubborn stubble to contend with.

Thought using the bleaching cream several times a day would speed up the process to lighten-up those age spots?

Oops, maybe not as your skin turns a bright, angry red and starts peeling off in sheets.

Did you know that if you are in the process of whitening your teeth that you should avoid red wine and coffee? If not, a grey, dingy smile is the sad result.

Got carried away with your plucking again didn't you? Now your eyebrows look like Snidely Whiplash's mustache.
