HALT! Are you breaking out suddenly? Read more to find out what are some skincare mistakes you are doing wrong.
Are you exfoliating every single day?
Well, you really shouldn’t because you might be overdoing it.
Exfoliating is an important step that should be incorporated into your routine, but should only be done 2-3 times a week, and only once or twice if you have sensitive skin. Overdoing it will result in stripping the skin of its natural oils, causing breakouts.
If you are currently looking for an exfoliant, Try: Bright Skies - A gentle peeling gel exfoliator that is suitable for even the most sensitive skin! It effectively cleanses your pores, and is free from microbeads and hard abrasions that can damage your skin barrier. Even so, take note that you still shouldn’t exfoliate everyday!
- Not wearing sunscreen
Even on gloomy days, UV radiation and rays can still penetrate through cloud cover. Just because you don’t see the sun doesn’t mean that it's not there! It is important to apply sunscreen everyday, to ensure you are protected from both UVA and UVB rays.
Try: Morning Glow - A physical hydrating sunscreen with SPF50 and PA++++ that helps prevent premature ageing by protecting your skin from UVA and UVB rays. Remember to use both indoors and outdoors!
- Leaving makeup on when you sleep and/or workout
Not removing your makeup before taking a nap or going to the gym allows for build up of impurities and sweat, preventing your skin from breathing and resting! These nasties can cause clogged pores which can lead to breakouts!
Try: Kaleanser - A dreamy jelly-like gel texture that doubles up as a waterproof makeup remover on dry skin, and an effective yet gentle cleanser that is packed with superfoods and a low pH to keep your skin smooth, supple and hydrated!
