Most of us have been figuring out how to get clear skin for ages, haven’t we? But you might be surprised to know that your usual everyday things can also make your skin prone to pimples and other woes. Getting clear and gorgeous skin is actually quite easy, girls. Here are a few things you should not do to your face, in order to get great and glowing skin.
Well, if you don’t know this already, popping your pimples can lead to severe scarring of your skin. Also, the pigment around your acne might change after you pop it which might not get back to the original colour easily. It’s better to NOT pop your pimples if you want clear skin and instead, you can try to get rid of them at home or visit your dermatologist.
Had a late night party with the girls? No matter how tired you are, don’t make the mistake of sleeping with your makeup on. Not removing your makeup before going to bed can lead to clogged pores that make your skin break out. Your skin might become dry and the mascara might also break your lashes! Sounds scary, doesn’t it?
There are a lot of things going on in the beauty world, ladies. But that doesn’t mean you have to try each and everything. Everyone’s skin is different, so stick to the products you’ve been using for a while (and the ones that suit your skin). Using a new product or going for a new beauty treatment that might not suit your skin can result in acne or rashes.
It’s essential to apply a sunscreen every day before you head out. Protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun is important in order to not damage it. Wearing sunscreen is a skin commandment that ought to be followed all the time. Whether it’s rainy, sunny or cold outside, apply some before you leave your home.
The skin around your eyes is the thinnest and you need to take extra care of your undereye area. Rubbing your eyes can lead to wrinkled skin and fine lines. Apply eye gels and creams in order to keep the sensitive area nourished.
Ladies, for clear and healthy skin, invest in some good products. You don’t know what kind of chemicals are there in these products and in what way they might react to your skin. Every girl should always invest in the kind of skincare and makeup products that suit her skin.
While exfoliating is a good habit, doing too much of it can be bad for your skin. Over-exfoliation can strip off your skin of natural oils, making it dry and flaky. If you think your skin is over-exfoliated, skip scrubbing for 2-3 weeks and your skin will be back to normal.
If your skin is acne-prone, then keep your hands to yourself, ladies! Your fingers have a lot of bacteria because you use your phone, laptop etc all the time. Touching your skin all too often will transfer these bacteria onto your face, thus, making you break out.
Your glasses might cause acne, ladies! Surprised? Your glasses can attract a lot of germs and bacteria, which is why you should always keep them clean. Also, make sure that your glasses are of the perfect size and not too tight.
