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.
