The Skincare Mistakes You Need to Stop Making In 2018

by Laura Collins

I don’t know about you but my biggest priority in life—after keeping my pothos desk plant alive and watching Cole Sprouse’s Instagram stories in real time—is staying young forever. A simple enough aspiration. Honestly, I don’t care if my bones are brittle and my veins struggle to pump blood to my fingertips (OK, that’s a lie, I do care very much), as long as I look like a 21-year-old who has never been exposed to air-conditioning, cigarette smoke, alcohol or sugar, I will be happy. I don’t ask for much.

This quest of mine has taken me to skincare stores all around the world, both in-store and online—Japan, NYC, Paris—and I will never ever reveal to my boyfriend just how much of my hard-earned cash I spend on these delicious confections (though I’m sure he has some ideas based off the number of times I’ve pointed out which moisturisers he is allowed to use, and which it is never to touch under punishment of death).

But actually, it doesn’t matter whether you dip your whole head in a vat of Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair before bed; if you’re ignoring the fundamental rules of skincare, no amount of expensive cream will stave off those evil signs of ageing. Turning to the experts—the widely-known (and sought after) facialist Jocelyn Petroni, and dermal clinician James Vivian for advice—these are the skincare mistakes to avoid.
