We all do things in out beauty routine that we know that we probably shouldn't but still continue to do anyway. Sometimes we don't even know that it is bad for us.
Over exfoliating removes the protective barrier that your skin has, once removed, your skin is exposed to environmental toxins & sun damage. Exfoliate 2-3 times a week, max.
Sleeping With Make-Up On
Not removing your make-up for the night clogs up your pores and oil glands, always take your make-up off before going to bed.
Not Cleansing Properly
Look for a cleanser that contains the right ingredients, things like antioxidants for protection, salicylic acid to help clear your pores.
Using Dirty Make-Up Brushes
Invest in a brush cleaner, especially for your foundation brush, keeping your brushes clean everyday will ensure no dirt and old make-up build-up is going to effect your skin.
Wrong Pillow Case
Pillowcases contain a build-up of residue from things like conditioner and scalp oil that can clog your pores, change your pillow case at least once a week,
Drying Your Skin Out
Drying your skin and choosing harsh products causes irritation and breakouts, look out for a treatment that soothes while it targets your skin concern, and to always finish with a hydrating moisturiser,
Taking Too Hot Showers
Hot showers can strip your skin of essential moisture and healthy oils. I recommend warm, not hot showers.
Picking At Your Face
Anytime you pick or pull at your skin, you are causing damage and creating irritation, scars and wrinkles.
