Let’s find out if you are guilty?
- Mistake 1 – Stressing over it
- Mistake 2 – Spending way too much time in the shower
- Mistake 3 – Consuming too much dairy and junk
- Mistake 4 – Skipping moisturizing because you have oily skin
- Mistake 5 – Popping zits
Mistake 1 – Stressing over it
Take a chill pill
Stress can be your skin’s biggest enemy. Constant anxiety can upset the hormonal balance in your body and ultimately lead to breakouts. So, if you have been feeling stressed, try calming your nerves down with activities like, yoga, meditation, reading, running and swimming.
Mistake 2 – Spending way too much time in the shower
Avoid long hot water showers
If you are someone who enjoys hot water showers, then know this: it isn’t good for your skin.
Long hot showers tend to rob your skin off its basic moisture and leave it dry and dull, which in turn makes it prone to breakouts and acne.
Mistake 3 – Consuming too much dairy and junk
You can’t binge on junk food and expect it to not show on your skin. Unhealthy habits lead to acne, simple! Oily food and dairy products cause inflammation which further aggravates acne prone skin.
Mistake 4 – Skipping moisturizing because you have oily skin
Pick the right moisturizing product for oily skin
Because oily skin is prone to acne, you might get tempted into skipping this step but that is your mistake.
If you have oily skin, then you need a suitable moisturizer that will suit your skin type and provide hydration. Opt for an oil-free moisturizer that does the job without making your skin too greasy.
We suggest you go for the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel for your skin’s moisturizing needs. Infused with pure aloe extracts this aqua gel moisturizes, soothes, hydrates and replenishes your skin all at one go.
Mistake 5 – Popping zits
Leave them pimples alone
Tempting as it may be, it’s not a good idea to pop those zits. Not only will it aggravate the breakouts, but also leave behind scars. The right products coupled with a healthy lifestyle will make your pimple problem a thing of the past.
We suggest you avoid popping zits and go for a face wash that will prevent breakouts. Our suggestion is the Citra Pimple-Clear Face Wash With Japanese Green Tea. Powered by green tea extracts, this product controls breakouts even in extreme weathers.
