Washing Too Much

To keep our skin glowing and healthy, we have the tendency to wash it over and over again. This especially happens when you have oily skin. However, over washing can make your skin dry and in case of oily textures, your skin will overproduce oil, thus, negating the entire cleaning process. Cleaning your skin twice daily will serve much better results.

Unclean Hands

Often people tend to forget to wash their hands before washing their face. All this means is that you are not really cleaning your face, as there would be bacteria and dirt on your hands that get transferred to your face, causing it to remain unclean. Keeping your hands clean is half the battle won for healthy skin.

Not Drenching Enough

Whenever you apply any cleansing product on your face, it is very important to rinse it off fully. Cleanser left on the skin can dry the skin out. The same logic applies to the face wipes we use to remove dirt, makeup or any other cosmetics. These wipes contain a cleanser to dissolve the makeup, so it’s absolutely necessary for the skin to be drenched completely to get rid of that residue.

Over Exfoliation

Exfoliation means removal of dead skin cells. Regular exfoliation is necessary for smoother, tighter, firmer and healthier looking skin. But this can be easily overdone due to its immediate benefits. This can lead to redness or peeling of the skin. To calm your face once it is red, use a green tea extract paste mixed with rose water and rinse it off with cold water after 15 minutes. Remember not to over exfoliate, your skin will thank you later.

Dirty Washing Tools

If you use a loofah or washcloth to clean your face, it is essential to keep those items clean as well. A dirty loofah can redeposit dirt on your skin. However, opt for a baby loofah, which will be softer and less irritating on the skin After all, a gentle touch is all that your skin requires.

We hope that these skincare tips are useful. Just swap your regular habits and avoid making these common mistakes to get the secret to healthy, glowing skin.

Stay beautiful....feel beautiful....
