Yes, a daily skincare routine is an essential step on the road to clear skin—as long as your regimen is helping your complexion, not hurting it. Many of us are unaware that common practices actually result in new skin concerns rather than solutions. Here, the habits you need to break to stop damaging your face. You might be doing some of these every day.
Many of us fall prey to the belief that the more intense a product is, the more likely it is to work. The truth is that products with powerful ingredients, particularly exfoliants, can damage your skin if they’re too rough.
By now you know the importance of washing your makeup brushes at least once a week to remove bacteria. However, a huge mistake a lot of us make is using the beauty tool that comes packaged with a new product—until that product runs out. Reach for disposable sponges, eye-shadow brushes, mascara brushes, etc. to help you save your skin from damage.
They may be relaxing, but long, hot showers can actually damage your skin. The heat from the water strips skin of its natural oils, resulting in a dry, rough complexion.
