Kristals Skin Care Tips: 6 Rules You Need to Know
#1 Oily Skin Can Still Become Wrinkled Skin
Those with more moist, oily skin tend to think that they can be a little more lax about moisturizing, since their skin is already well-hydrated. While there may be some truth to this, the reality is that oily skin can still look wrinkled and old over time. It’s certainly not a good excuse to slack on a good skincare regimen.

#2 You Can Overdo Face-Washing
While morning and night are fine, it might be best to use other options like cleansing wipes or oil-blotting paper for midday cleanses. Too much washing, particularly with cleansers with harsh products like sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), can dry out the skin and do more harm than good. (Kristals Cosmetics cleansers never have SLS!)
#3 Your Diet Impacts the Skin
Unfortunately, what you eat not only impacts the body, but also the skin. Studies have shown that things like sugary drinks and dairy products can contribute to inflammation and acne. The good news is that healthy foods like leafy greens, salmon and green tea can have the inverse effect, reducing the chances of acne.
#4 So Does Stress
In some ways, the skin can be a window to your overall health. And if you are constantly under stress, sleeping poorly or dealing with other problems, then it’s bound to show in your skin. Taking positive steps to manage stress is always a good idea.
#5 More SPF Does Not Mean More Sun Time
Protecting yourself from the sun is of huge importance for overall skin care. But contrary to popular belief, higher SPF does not equal out to being able to spend more time in the sun safely. The SPF is a measure of the strength of the protection offered, not the length.
#6 You Might Need to Change Skincare Products Over Time
Finally, it’s important to realize that skincare can be an ever-evolving thing. While a product might work great for you for several months, it might reach a point where it is no longer effective for you. At this stage, it might be time to move on and try something new.
