I’m sure most people can relate to this: You hear about this highly raved beauty product, the one that promises to zap all of your zits and make your skin glow
However, once you get your hands on it, nothing happens. Worse still, your skin condition seems to be progressively deteriorating. So, is it you or is the product that you’re using?
Here are the signs that you got it all wrong
1) Discomfort (itch, redness, burning and stinging)
While you might have heard of the saying “pain is beauty”, if you are experiencing pain along with signs of inflammation like redness or stinging – discontinue use of the product immediately While there are ingredients (commonly found in acne treatment) like benzoyl peroxide that can cause a slight irritation, redness or a burning sensation that last more than a few days is an indication that you should toss the product
2) Lumps and bumps
You might experience a breakout when you start on a new skincare product because your skin takes time (two to three weeks) to adapt to a new product. That being said, if you are experiencing more than just one or two zits at a time and they don’t seem to be clearing up, this product is probably not right for you
3)Super oily or super dry for prolonged time
Dry: If you’re experiencing dry patches or flakiness, the product that you’re using could be made with drying agents such as alcohol or you could be allergic to a certain ingredient.
Oily: Oil control-products that are too strong can actually strip away the skin’s natural oils and in turn cause it to produce even more oil
4)Skin feels tight and hot
This is a sign of a sensitive reaction to one of the ingredients, usually a fragrance or preservative, causing your body to mount an immediate response
Usually, you’d see redness and sometimes skin swelling. The thing to do would be to stop using the product immediately and rinse it off, then apply a soothing moisturiser on your skin
Don't give up after 1 week, there are no miracle creams ( even marketing claims are shouting miracle overnight acne treatment : don't buy this! as a side note), skincare takes minimum 2 months to get some results, hang in there.
taking care of yourself should be a priority! So I've teamed up with my favorite dental clinic to giveaway 1 FREE TEETH WHITENING TREATMENT because i want to see you smile ❤.

💫 A stunning set of rocks welcome you to the city of📍 Beirut. Pigeons’ Rock (also known as the Rock of Raouché) is located at 🇱🇧Beirut’s western-most tip, the two huge rock formations stand like gigantic sentinels to the 🌃 . Locals love to walk🚶🏽♂️ along the corniche (seaside promenade) at any time of day, but during sunset 🌅 it is especially busy. Be sure to go early and stroll the corniche, before finding your perfect 👌🏼 spot for viewing the spectacular sunset ☀️
📍صخرة الروشة هي معلم سياحي لبناني شَهير وهي عبارة عن صخرتين كبيريتين قريبتين من شاطئ منطقة الروشة في بحر بيروت
إطلاق كلمة "روشة" على هذه الصخرة يعود إلى أصل آرامي، حيث تلفظ "روش" وتعني بالعربية رأس، إلا أن بعض الباحثين يرون أن اللفظة من أصل فرنسي، حيث تعني روش باللغة الفرنسية الصخرة، ويرجح أن التسمية لم تكن تطلق عليها إلاّ خلال فترة الحكم الفرنسي للبنان
يفترض بعض علماء الجيولوجيا بأن صخرة الروشة ظهرت بسبب عدة زلازل قوية ضربت بحر بيروت الغربي في القرن الثالث عشر، حيثُ أدت هذه الزلازل إلى القضاء على العديد من الجزر المأهولة في ذلك الوقت وظهر في محلها صخور كثيرة منها صخرة الروشة.
