Common skincare mistakes
Not cleansing properly -
Even if you're diligent in makeup removal, you have to be sure you're using a cleanser with the right ingredients.
Sleeping with your makeup on - Not removing your makeup for the night clogs your pores and oil glands. This will make your pores appear larger.
Using dirty makeup brushes -
Dirty makeup brushes are doing more damage to your skin than you think.
Not wearing sunscreen every day - The best protection against skin aging is a good sunscreen defense. It should be used every day, even in winter.
Rubbing the products on harshly - Harshly rubbing on products can damage the skin.
Popping pimples - When we squeeze a pimple from the side, it ends up creating an infection that goes down deeper into the pore.
Using products not designed for your skin type - Make it a point to read your products’ labels to make sure you’re using the right product for you.
Eating a bad diet - Make sure you consume veggies that have a lot of color, such as red cabbage and green lettuce.
Not frequently washing your sheets and pillowcase - Pillowcases accumulate a buildup of residue from things like conditioner and scalp oil, which can clog your pores.
Not getting enough sleep -
A good night's sleep helps your skin look its best. Lack of sleep makes the skin dull and pale with under-eye circles. Make sure you get optimum rest.
Not knowing what you're putting on your skin - It's best to educate yourself so you properly know what you're putting on your skin.
Drying out your skin -
People with acne or the occasional pimple think they need to dry out their skin, and end up choosing products that are too harsh.
Not moisturizing your skin -
Regardless of your skin type, it’s important that you moisturize daily and apply a heavier cream at night. And, yes, this includes people with oily skin.
Ignoring your neck - When you cleanse and moisturize your neck, work your products gently in an upward motion.
Not separating body and face towel - Make sure you have a separate towel for both body and face.
Picking your face -
Anytime you pick or pull at your skin, you're causing damage and creating irritation, scars, and wrinkles. So just stop!
Wearing makeup when you work out - Wearing makeup while working out will clog your pores and cause acne.
Letting products go stale -
Skincare products don't last forever. Pay attention to their expiration date.
