Common Skincare Mistakes You’re Probably Making

Burst

Not cleansing properly

Effective makeup removal needs a cleanser with antioxidants for protection and salicylic acid for clearing pores. Choose wisely for healthy skin.

Burst

Over-exfoliating

It might be tempting, but over-exfoliating is highly damaging in the long term. You're actually removing the protective barrier of your skin, making it more prone to environmental toxins

Burst

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.

Burst

Not applying products in the correct order

To fully maximize the benefits of the products in your regimen is to apply products with a thinner consistency before the thicker ones. It doesn't matter what their active ingredients are.

Burst

Using dirty makeup brushes

Dirty makeup brushes are doing more damage to your skin than you think. Keeping your brushes clean will ensure no dirt or old makeup affect your skin.

Burst

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. Make sure it has an SPF of 30 or higher.

Burst

Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase

Switch to satin or silk, as they minimize permanent creases and complexion issues. Persistently pressing your face into a cotton pillowcase causes the skin to aggravate by the friction of cotton.

Burst

Rubbing the products on harshly

Harshly rubbing on products can damage the skin. The best way to apply is by maintaining negligible pressure and focusing on spreading instead of rigorously massaging them in.

Burst

Exfoliating away oily skin

When your skin is over-scrubbed, the oil production actually speeds up because the skin’s natural repair mechanism is put into overdrive.

Burst

Overusing all your products

Just like over-scrubbing, overusing your cleanser or other products also compromises your skin’s natural protective oil. It isn’t necessary to cleanse in the morning and the evening.

Burst

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.
