We all want clear skin but sometimes those products we see from our fave skincare experts may be a bit out of budget.
So, it’s understandable to want to create your own skincare routine based off of natural ingredients you may have at home. Or you may want to add a fun new thing to add to your current skincare routine. DIY skincare has existed for years but has seen a particularly sharp increase recently, primarily as a result of social media trends and beauty vloggers popularising the movement.
But as tempting as it is to create a skincare routine based on what in your cupboard, you may possibly be doing more harm than good.
Aesthetician Rochelle of Ooh La La Spa shares four common ingredients to avoid in your skincare routine.

Can I make a confession? I’ve never used DIY skincare remedies. I was actually surprised to learn that people turned to some of these ingredients found in the kitchen on their skin. I just want to simply educate you on the potential harm that you can do to your skin by DIYing your skin care routine. I’m not saying that these methods could not possibly work for someone but did you research if they had the same skin type, same skin texture, same history, same lifestyle as you? Even if the ingredients seem harmless and natural the wrong combination can scar you for life. All I want is to help you to develop a culture of taking care of your skin. We are in an age of “skintellectualism” where skincare users like you are adopting a much more investigative approach to their routines and are educating themselves about the best ingredients for their skin concerns. How can I help you along your journey to perfect skin?
