9 Skincare Habits You Need to Have A Break-Up With!

Wondering which skincare habits adopted by you innocently are harming you? Keep reading to find out:

1. Unhygienic Re-touchups

Come summers and skin gets oily by mid-day. Your solution for it is to pull out compact from your handbag and pat the powder on your skin. You think your skin is now mattified and oil will be away for a long time. But what really happens is that you press bacteria and grime on your skin. Thinking how? You are putting your makeup sponge on your already shiny skin and again pressing that sponge accompanied with dirt and oil onto the powder. This is why you first must use a blotting sheet to remove excess shine and then touch-up using a powder. Oriflame and BasicCare have oil blotting sheets priced reasonably.

2. Over-exfoliating

Over Exfoliating

The maximum number of times you can afford to exfoliate your face is twice per week. Any more than that is causing your skin to get more sensitive and extra dry. Instead of opting for those walnut based scrubs that have harsh granules, opt for gel based exfoliators that are gentle on skin.

3. Exercising with makeup on

“I was already late for my workout session and therefore I decided to skip removing makeup.” is a very common excuse. No matter how much late you are running for your gym, it is vital on your part to remove your makeup. Do you know what actually happens when you don’t do it apart from pimples attacking your skin? The sweat opens up the pores and all the dirt along with makeup enters into them. No doubt, your skin is bombarded with ugly acne. Keep makeup removal wipes in your handbag for quick removal. If you wear light makeup on a daily basis, even baby wipes can work!

4. Not getting adequate Sleep

No amount of beauty products will help you reverse the damage caused to your skin by not getting proper amount of sleep. Lack of sleep will show up on your skin by adding tiredness and wrinkles on it.

5. Using sunscreen occasionally

Sunscreen Occasionally

Do not reserve sunscreen only for days when you would be under the sun for a long period of time. Make a vow to use it on a daily basis to not make your skin age faster.

6. Picking Pimples

When you pop your pimple, you scar your skin and also make an invitation for more pimples to attack your skin by spreading the bacteria. No matter what party it is, do not ever pick a pimple. For a quick relief, try spot targeted treatments that work their magic in just a few hours.

7. Sleeping with makeup on

If you want to keep adding years to your skin, keep continuing with your love affair for sleeping in with makeup on. Not removing makeup clogs your pores and prevents oxygen from reaching the pores. As a result, your skin results in a break-out and starts looking dull over-time.

8. Not using products meant for your skin type

It is easy to fall into the trap of new beauty launches which make tall claims. But the thing you need to remember is that those new beauty products will do no good for your skin if they aren’t meant for your skin type.

9. Not Washing Makeup Brushes

If you use makeup brushes on a regular basis and don’t wash them frequently, bacteria can build up on them. Never use dirty makeup brushes or you might land yourself in a big trouble. In fact, you shouldn’t even share your makeup brushes.
