When it comes to skincare and beauty, weve all made a few mistakes at some point in our lives. Believe it or not, so have the experts! Well, theyre only human after all. Here, they admit to their beauty mistakes:Youd expect a Dermatologist to be sun-savvy but New Jersey based Dr Jeanine Downie admits that between the ages of 16 and 20, she did not wear sunscreen her profession back then? She was a lifeguard. She says: Due to the sunburns, I developed melisma at the very young age of 21. Having suffered from Hyperpigmentation for the last few decades, the Doctor now has a very different attitude towards sunscreen and reapplies it every two hours. Exfoliation is a useful way to get rid of dead skin cells and to boost circulation it also helps to stimulate the production of collagen. So what happens when you exfoliate too much? Dr Kunin found that the scrubbing gave her a chest infection. She now advises a combination approach which includes Medical Microdermabrasion and a gentle Skin Peel. We all love to hear the latest anti-ageing solution but how about a tip to avoid premature ageing instead? Dr Doris Day, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology at New York University Medical School says: My father always told me not to rub my eyes. Since he was also an M.D. he may have been on to something. I didnt listen and I ended up with puffiness and redness. What beauty mistakes are you guilty of making? Let us know onFacebook.
