Not washing your hands
 

Not washing your hands

Always start by washing your hands with a gentle hand wash before proceeding to your face. Skipping this step will only transfer all the germs from your hands to your face and cause more skin issues. Think of the all the things you’ve touched during the day, do you really want to put all that dirt on your face?

Using extreme water temperature

Another important factor to consider while washing your face is the water temperature. Too hot will open your pores and may even cause irritation and inflammation. Too cold on the other hand will rob your skin off its natural oils and make it look dry. Always use room temperature water while washing your face.

Scrubbing too hard
 

Scrubbing too hard

Scrubbing your face too hard does not mean getting rid of oil, dirt and impurities. It can also cause irritation and broken capillaries. Instead, be gentle and opt for a face wash that has a deep cleansing action such as the Pond’s Pure White Anti-Pollution Face Wash . It has activated charcoal that penetrates deep into your skin and brings all the dirt to the surface to get washed away and reveal soft and glowing skin.

Heavy and waterproof makeup does not come off easily with water and face wash therefore, it is important to first remove this stubborn layer with a good makeup remover. We recommend the Lakme Absolute Bi-Phased Make-up Remover that lifts and removes the most stubborn makeup effortlessly. It is suitable for the most sensitive skin types too!
