生活英语:盘点八大易犯护肤错误

Whether you spend just 30 seconds every morning or have a dedicated pre-bedtime ritual, practically everyone has a skincare routine. And while we all have the best intentions when it comes to taking care of our complexion, we sometimes sabotage our skin without realizing it. Your daily habits make a major difference when it comes to preventing damage and premature aging.Renee Rouleau, a celebrity esthetician with skincare shares the eight most common skincare mistakes—and how to fix them。

无论是清晨的30秒还是临睡的精心惯例,每个人都有自己的一套护肤方法。尽管我们都很在意自己的皮肤状况,有时我们还是会无意间对它造成伤害。我们的习惯决定了护肤流程究竟是防止损伤还是加速衰老。而今天著名美容师Renee Rouleau将与我们分享八个最常见的护肤误区,以及它们的纠正方法。

Leaving skin bare for longer than 60 seconds after cleansing

洁面后超过60秒不涂护肤品

After cleansing, you must immediately use an alcohol-free toner and moisturizer. If you leave your skin bare for more than one minute, it will start to dehydrate as the dry air sucks moisture out of the skin. Perform your skin care routine quickly, and be sure to always leave your toner damp on the skin. This will leave your skin protected and avoid the tight and dry feeling。

洁面后必须立即使用无酒精的爽肤水和面霜。如果这个过程耽搁了超过一分钟,皮肤中的水分就会被空气风干,从而造成肌肤缺水。因此,尽快进行肌肤护理,用爽肤水保持皮肤湿润,这样可以保护肌肤不干燥紧绷。

Not using products formulated for your skin type

错误使用不适合自己肌肤状况的产品

The reason you may not see improved results with your skincare products is that they aren’t suited for your skin’s unique needs. Find out what type of skin a product is formulated for. And if “all skin types” is the answer, proceed with caution. If you’re truly looking for results, it’s imperative that you use products exclusively formulated for the unique needs of your skin。

如果你用了某产品却没发现效果,那说明它并不适合你肤质的特殊需要。因此,研究清楚该产品究竟适合什么肤质是非常重要的。如果它说“适合所有肤质”,那你就更要谨慎一些。如果真的想看到效果的话,就要特别判断清楚肤质并选择合适的产品。

Caring for your blemishes—the wrong way

错误的祛痘方法

Most people will breakout at certain periods in their life, and where they often go wrong is how they treat a blemish once it appears. If it’s a pustular blemish, once the whitehead is truly visible, gently squeeze out the infection with your finger and then apply a spot-drying treatment. If it’s a cystic blemish, which mainly occur in the chin and jaw areas, this means no picking!

大多数人总有某个特定的时候皮肤会突发状况,而这个时候往往有些人选择对待痘痘的方式就是错误的。如果痘痘带有脓包,那么当白头冒出来的时候,可以用手轻轻地把它挤出来,然后使用局部干燥的清理措施;如果它只是肿起来,而且在发在下巴上,这就是在告诉你不要挤!

Using too many exfoliating products too often

频繁使用过多去角质产品

In the quest to look younger and have smoother skin, people are doing too many aggressive exfoliating treatments that are actually injuring their skin. Too much exfoliation can result in flaking, dehydration and inflammation, possible destruction of healthy cells. Physical exfoliants such as facial scrubs or facial brushes should be used no more than two or three times a week. Chemical exfoliants should be used three nights on, three nights off。

为了肌肤看上去更年轻更光滑,人们会选择做去角质护理,而这往往会损害她们的皮肤。经常去角质会导致皮肤菠萝、肌肤缺水,引起炎症甚至损伤健康细胞。物理去角质的方法,例如用洁面刷,应该一周不超过2~3次;化学去角质则应该做3天,停3天。

Not wearing sunscreen daily and not applying enough

没有每天涂防晒且量不够

The number one reason why your skin will age prematurely is from sunlight, daylight and UV rays—period. And 78% of those rays come from incidental exposure when people don’t feel like they need sun protection. If you want to prevent wrinkles, wearing sunscreen 365 days a year, rain or shine, inside or out, is a must。

肌肤衰老的原因之一就是阳光辐射。而78%的辐射都发生在人们觉察不到的时候。因此,如果你不想长皱纹,那就365天无论阴晴、无论在室内室外都必须涂抹防晒。

Using alcohol-based toners or skipping them entirely

用含酒精的爽肤水或者根本不用爽肤水

Using toners loaded with alcohol, which will only dehydrate the skin. Alcohol-free toners should be used after every cleansing because they give your skin a drink of moisture when left damp on the skin before applying moisturizer, they remove drying chlorines and minerals found in tap water。

用含酒精的爽肤水会加快皮肤干燥。每次洁面后都应该使用无酒精的爽肤水,使肌肤保持湿润,再涂面霜,这样可以去除掉自来水里的氯和矿物质。

Washing your skin with bar soap

用香皂洁面

If you wash with a bar of soap—no matter how much you paid for it—you immediately strip your skin of all its water. Then you have to quickly put moisturizer on to put back exactly what you just took out. The binders that hold a bar of soap together have a high pH balance, making it too drying for most skin types。

无论你买的洁面皂多昂贵,它都会带走肌肤中的水分。这意味着你必须马上涂面霜来补水。香皂里的黏合剂ph值偏高,这对于大部分肌肤来说都是偏干燥的。

Overusing moisturizer

过度使用面霜

Adding multiple coats of moisturizer to alleviate dry skin is not the same as switching to a creamier consistency. Using thicker coats of moisturizer will only result in clogged pores and a waste of product because your skin can only absorb so much。

过度叠加面霜来减缓皮肤干燥的症状和改用质地较浓稠的面霜性质是不同的。面霜涂很厚只会导致毛孔堵塞,而且因为皮肤并不能吸收,用这么多也是浪费。
