9 Common Skincare Mistakes

Here is the list of 9 most common summer skincare mistakes to avoid for healthy and radiant skin.

9 Common Skincare Mistakes   

1. Not Cleansing Enough 

Maintaining clean skin throughout the day can be tough, especially during the summer. Additionally, sweat and dirt can clog your pores. Wash your face at least two times daily, even when indoors. Incorporate gentle cleansers into your morning and evening routines. Consider using our Refreshing Face Wash with Pro-Vit B5 + Vit E. This is a 100% soap-free face wash that is gentle and can be used daily. It doesn’t dry out your skin, and thanks to the addition of Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, it keeps your skin nourished and smooth.

2. Not Applying Sunscreen 

Sunscreen isn't just one of the summer skincare tips. It's a crucial skin health habit. Sun's UV rays have the potential to damage your skin. However, finding the right sunscreen can be tricky. It is recommended to choose a gentle, gel-based sunscreen like our Simple Kind to Skin Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++. This is a lightweight, no white cast sunscreen that is perfect for summer. What’s more, it’s suitable for all skin types.

3. Not Moisturising 

Moisturising is one of the major summer skincare essentials. It ensures your skin stays nourished and resilient. Dry skin can lead to discomfort and skin damage. Moisturiser alleviates all these issues and keeps your skin hydrated and supple. Use our Hydrating Light Moisturiser for best results. It provides all-day hydration and is suitable for all skin types. It is enriched with Borage Seed Oil, Pro-Vitamin B5, and Vitamin E and is easily absorbed into your skin with a non-greasy texture.

4. Not Hydrating Enough 

During hot weather or sun exposure, your body can lose water rapidly, leaving your skin dull and vulnerable. Dehydration not only dulls your skin but can also worsen sunburns and speed up ageing. Staying hydrated is crucial, and drinking plenty of water throughout the day is vital.

5. Following Face Care And Not Skincare 

One common mistake in skincare routine is focusing on the face while neglecting other exposed areas like the neck and hands. Remember, it's not just your face that needs protection. Your neck, hands, arms, and feet also reflect the health of your skin. Proper cleansing, moisturising, exfoliating, and sun protection are essential.

6. Not Exfoliating Enough 

Exfoliation is commonly associated with winter skincare routines to remove dry skin. However, it's essential year-round. Adding regular exfoliation to your summer skincare routine is important. It helps eliminate dirt, dust, and bacteria accumulating deep within the skin. Use our Simple Active Skin Barrier Care Smoothing Gel Cleanser to lock in that much-needed moisture. Packed with 5% Lactic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid, this cleanser helps in providing more even-toned skin. Our special formula boasts 7% Ceramide boosters to fortify your skin's natural defenses as well.

7. Wrong Order Of Using Skincare 

What happens if you build a house with a roof instead of a sturdy foundation? It is a recipe for disaster, isn't it? Skincare works much the same way. Applying products in the incorrect order can lead to confusion and reduce their effectiveness. Your pricey serums might struggle to penetrate heavy creams, or sunscreen could get trapped under nighttime moisturisers. You should know the correct order—cleansing, toning, serum application, moisturising. Finally, seal the deal with sunscreen.

8. Wearing Heavy Makeup 

Opt for a lighter makeup routine this summer for a fresh, natural appearance. Thick layers of makeup, especially in hot, sweaty conditions, can clog pores and lead to breakouts. So keep your makeup light and focus more on skincare throughout summer.

9. Ignoring Your Neck 

Don't overlook your neck in your skincare routine. Neglecting this area is a common yet significant mistake. The delicate skin on your neck is prone to ageing. By giving your neck the attention it deserves, you can maintain a youthful appearance.


We have all made one or the other mistake with skincare, especially in summer. Sticking to a regular skincare routine is important. The sun and heat can mess up our skin if we are not careful. So, avoid these nine common mistakes to keep your skin healthy. Do your homework and always check what's in your skincare products.
