Skincare Mistakes You Do That are Ruining Your Skin

Washing Your Face with Unwashed Hands

Hands contain a lot of bacteria. You do so many things with your hands. That makes dirt, grime and bacteria sit on your hands. When you wash your face without washing your hands, that bacteria and grime gets on your face too which makes you break out more and get a lot of other skin issues.

Touching Your Face Frequently

As explained earlier, hands are home to bacteria and grime. They contain tons of bacteria and dust and you don’t want to shift all that towards your face. It also makes your face age faster. So always make sure not to touch your face (of course doing your skincare is an exception).

Not Sanitizing your Phone

Phones contain more germs than a toilet seat because of which, when you don’t sanitize your phone, it gets transferred to your skin when you touch your face after touching your phone or when you are on a call (when it touches your skin).

Not Washing your Makeup before Sleeping

According to studies, sleeping with makeup on ages your skin 7 times faster which is not what you want I hope. It also makes you break out more and makes the dirt and makeup seep into your skin.

Exfoliating Too Much

Exfoliation is the key to beautiful skin but when overly done, it can sensitize your skin and cause acne, rosacea, and other skin problems. So, always be moderate when exfoliating and avoid over-exfoliation to make sure your skin enjoys it.

Stressing over Your Skin

When you use magnifying mirrors to examine your skin and then stress over any imperfections, this can produce stress hormones which in turn, cause your skin to age faster and breakout more so always keep at least a sink distance between you and your mirror and know that imperfections are normal, pores are normal, acne is normal. Do not stress over your skin.

Using Too Many Products

A simple, basic routine contains a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. You can also exfoliate and use your favorite serum or acne treatment but using too many products can stress out your skin like the Korean 10-step routine. It can be too much load for your skin. So be gentle towards your skin and avoid using too many products.

Changing Products Too Quickly

Changing products in a week or sometime after using it and not seeing the results is another skin sin. Different ingredients take different periods of time to show results and changing products too quickly can be too harsh for your skin. It might not adjust to one product yet and you shift to another one.

 Not Wearing Sunscreen

All your skincare can be useless if you don’t apply and re-apply sunscreen. All the anti-aging and brightening products especially can not work or may worsen the condition because of not using sunscreen. So, find your favorite sunscreen and apply and re-apply at regular intervals to get the most out of your skincare products. These are the most commonly done skincare mistakes by people that worsen their skin conditions instead of improving. I hope you will now not make these mistakes and get the most out of your skincare routine to get beautiful, flawless skin.
