“This isn’t working out… I should try other skin care products” is something you'd probably say when you find out some symptoms that indicate that maybe you aren't getting the results that you wanted from the skin care products you chose. Skin care is a vital part of one’s daily grooming routine. Thus, we have to find out why isn't it working for you! So, come journey with us, as we take you out to find out more about why your skin care products might not be working for you!

Signs that indicate your skincare isn't working for you!

So what could the skinptoms possibly be? We have prepared a list for you to go through so you can tell whether or not you need to mix things up a little!

Drinking alcohol is not good in real life., or if your skin care routine includes it, your skin is majorly susceptible to dryness. It’s no secret that alcohol is used in many skin care products but isn’t necessarily the best if your skin starts getting dry and flakes around. In that case you can try going for a Vitamin C serum for face and skin. A vitamin c serum will help shield your skin from any sort of dryness and in general also helps add a glow to your skin. Or you can try going for face wash for dry skin specifically targeted towards this combined with a face moisturizer! Some of the best moisturizers for dry skin are as we mention a vitamin c serum for face, Vaseline petroleum jelly etc.

2. Your skin appears extremely oily

Oily skin is a problem many teenagers face. Many boys try to go for a simple face wash or a generic men face wash but it is to no avail. And if you are using the wrong product, you can have extremely oily skin! Well, in this scenario maybe try going for a face wash for oily skin, that is known and renowned for its results. Pair it up with a face moisturizer and a good exfoliator as well.

What is the difference between an acne and a rash? You can distinguish between them by seeing that acne usually contains blackheads, pimples etc. but a rash is just general swelling and inflammation of the skin causing itching etc. If you haven’t really been scrubbing your skin care products the right way… you can get a rash. To fight a rash, avoid rubbing your skin, use gentle cleansers… a simple face wash will suffice.

5. No improvement in general

You tried so hard and got so far, but in the end nothing ever mattered… zero improvement. So, what does this mean? It’s time to change your skin care routine all together. Consulting a dermatologist will help you to choose the right products wisely!

Normally people would advise you to get a rigid skincare schedule and stick to it till the end of time. We, at Anveya would like to say “Boring!”. Make it fun. Skincare shouldn’t be boring, it should be something you do with a smile on your face!

A good skincare routine includes basic 3 steps : Cleanse, moisturize & sun protect. 

1. Cleanse : Cleanse your face twice a day ; once in the morning and once at night before you head to sleep. You can try ThriveCo's Exfoliating Foaming Facial Cleanser. It gently cleanses skin and is suitable for all skin types.

2. Moisturize : Go for a thoroughly hydrating, non-comedogenic moisturizer after washing your face.

3. Sunscreen : This is the final and most important step of your skincare routine. Sun protect your skin with a Sunscreen Gel that contains SPF 50 and provides broad spectrum coverage. ThriveCo's Ultra Light Sunscreen Gel does an incredible job at calming sun-stressed skin. 


In order to develop a decent skincare routine, you gotta believe in the mantra - less is more. We know it must be tempting to see all these amazingly packed and gorgeous looking skincare products doing rounds in the market. But keep your routine simple, yet effective. Be consistent with the routine and have a lot of patience. Skincare takes time. Give your skin time to reflect the results.
