Know the Wrongs: Why isn’t your skincare working?

Fix your skincare routine!

Let’s admit it, we really experience those bad skin days wherein we feel like our skin is way too dry or oily. Sometimes, we have those days wherein acne suddenly just pops out of out face and we become too conscious about it. However, if these rare skin days turn out to be something that is normally happening to you, then we won’t lie to you but there is definitely something wrong!


When we do our skincare routines, we really have to be mindful of our skin types, the products that we put on our face and our habits that negatively affect our skin. There are certainly a lot of factors that we have to consider, especially as we do our skincare routine. If you want to find out why your skincare is flopping, then you are definitely in the right place! In this blog, GWTG will provide you information on why your current skincare routine may not be working out for you the way you want it to. 


  • You are using the wrong products with the wrong ingredients
  • Okay, so first on our list is definitely one of the most evident reasons as to why your skincare is not doing its own magic anymore. If you have read our previous blog regarding skin types, it is important for you to know what type of skin you have and ensure that the products that you use on your face are fit for you. That is why we’d totally love it if you use the GWTG Sun Stick since it includes ingredients that are perfect for all skin types! Other than that, you have to make sure that you are not too harsh on your skin when you are applying your skincare since it makes you more prone to acne and other blemishes.


  • You are inconsistent in doing your skincare routine
  • Of course, this should be something that a lot must know! Having an inconsistent skincare routine does not help your face in adapting to the products and on the ingredients that you put on your skin. It is important to make sure that you have a regular schedule on when you will apply certain products, and consistently cleanse, tone and moisturize so that your skin will easily absorb your skincare products. Moving forward, other parts of your skincare routine such as drinking tons of water should be done every day, so don’t you miss it!


  • You may be using expired products
  • Another one of the common instances that people also encounter is the usage of expired skincare and makeup products for the skin. So, let this be a reminder that you should ensure that all of the products that you put on your face should not be expired. Now, you may think that maintaining a fresh, glowing skin may come off too pricey, but don’t you worry, dear! A lot of makeup and skincare products can last for six months up to one year based on a regular use. If you happen to find stocked makeup or skincare at home, it is better to check the expiration date to avoid any problems!


  • You are undergoing a hormonal change
  • Issues on skincare cannot solely be blamed on the practices that you do as there are some moments that you are just simply undergoing hormonal changes. According to experts, hormonal changes can result to breakouts, and one thing that you can do is to talk to a dermatologist to ask about your skin condition. But again, don’t forget to continue on doing your regular skincare routine as it can be due to hormonal changes as the reason why you are having skin concerns.


  • Your skin is adapting to various changes in your lifestyle
  • Oh dear, stress is truly inevitable, and it is really difficult to handle and control all the aspects of our lives that contribute to the stress that we feel. Various changes in our lifestyle can be a cause of why our skincare isn’t working at most times because your skin may be releasing cortisol which is an increased oil production on the skin, especially when you’re stressed. Your skin may take a long time to adapt to these changes in your lifestyle.


    Having said all these, we hope that we have helped you on realizing the malpractices that you do when it comes to taking care of your skin. Make sure that you stay consistent to achieve that healthy skin. Go with the glow, slayer!
