Guilty! Convenience over complexion
Do you follow the golden rules?
Exfoliating too often
Over exfoliating can lead to redness and irritation. Constantly stripping your skin can actually make the skin greasy as it overcompensates for lack of oil.
Using too much moisturiser
A day moisturiser should always contain an SPF. When moisturiser is correctly suited to your skin type, it should feel comfortable on the skin and not leave skin feeling greasy or oily
Really we don’t need one!
Rushing the serum stage
It’s important to let it sink in and dry before applying your moisturiser. Otherwise the concentrated serum gets diluted by the moisturiser meaning your skin doesn’t reap all the benefits.
Using face wipes
Some face wipes contain harsh chemicals and high levels of alcohol that can dry the skin out.
Sleeping in make-up
As we sleep at night, our skin repairs itself.Sleeping with dirt, oil and make-up on can cause acne and enlarged pores. This is not the route to being a sleeping beauty!
We know it’s tempting, but this is one skincare sin that you have to stop! Squeezing spots is one of the biggest beauty crimes! Not only can the spot become infected, but you can actually make it bigger and even leave a scar. It can also spread bacteria leading to more spots.
Forgetting to clean make-up brushes
If using make-up brushes, washing them should be a regular part of your beauty routine. When you use your brushes, bits of make-up, oil, dirt, and even baterica can get trapped in the bristles. So while it might seem basic, skipping this step can lead to clogged pores and pesky breakouts. Clean make-up brushes weekly if you can!
Not getting enough sleep
You get tired – and so does your skin.
