Hair wash techniques
As crazy as it sounds, it’s very easy to get acne from your hair products. Conditioners are thick in nature. They consist of unnatural waxy products which can easily clog pores and cause acne.
BB Pro Tip: Always wash your hair first and then go for your face in the end. Preferably, exfoliate your face after every time you wash your hair.
Moisturised and hydrated skin is happy skin. But there comes a point where your skin can’t take it anymore. When you over moisturise your skin, you can clog your pores. This causes pimples and blackheads. So ladies, let your skin breathe every once in a while.
BB Pro Tip: Go for a light moisturiser for the day. Don’t use heavy creams or serum during the day.
Not using any moisturiser
Everyone with oily skin fears a heavy moisturiser. People believe they don’t need moisturisers because of all the oil that their skin already produces. This is wrong! Oily skin needs moisturisation just as much but the trick lies in the kind of moisturiser you pick.
BB Pro Tip: Use gel based moisturisers for oily skin.
Dirty pillow covers can really mess your skin
This one is a no brainer. Dirty pillow covers contain a lot of bacteria and dirt. It’s important to go to bed with a clean face. When bacteria from dirty pillow covers comes in contact with your skin, it can cause acne, rash, itchiness. pillow covers are also covered in hair product which can further aggravate things.
BB Pro Tip: Change your pillow covers every few days. Use silk covers for tangle-free hair.
Lack of sunscreen:
We tend to neglect the most important skin care item before stepping out. Sunscreen! Sunscreen protects our skin from harmful UV rays and also prevents us from unwanted and uneven tan lines. Sunscreen is underrated and shouldn’t be forgotten.
BB Pro Tips: So ladies, use a sunscreen which works for your skin and wear it even on gloomy days.
