  1. Overdoing Products

Due to blindly following reviews or even just hoarding new launches, you use too many skincare products constantly. That’s a complete no-no. Using too many products often leads to different formulas that don’t gel well, clogged pores and ingredients that don’t agree with each other. Stick to a basic cleansing, toning, moisturising and protecting routine on a daily basis with additional steps when necessary.

  1. Smoking

Not only is smoking a vile habit for your health, it is also extremely damaging for your skin too. According to DermNet NZ, smoking causes premature skin ageing, delays healing of wounds and injuries, increases the chance of psoriasis and the risk of skin cancer. And that’s only the effect it has on the skin.

  1. Picking Pimples

It can feel tempting to pick a pimple and hopefully see it vanish from your face but more often than not, that’s not what happens. Picking pimples usually doesn’t remove all the pus and can spread bacteria from your hands to your face resulting in scarring, marks and even more pimples. Put your hands down, right away.

  1. Exfoliating Too Much

The feeling of clean, smooth skin after exfoliating is a pleasant one but too often and you are doing more harm than good. Scrubbing the face too much can be extremely harsh on the skin and not only remove the dead cells but the healthy ones as well. This can damage the skin barrier and leave it red and raw.

  1. Not Washing Up After A Workout

No matter how hectic your schedule is, don’t miss on washing your face and body after a workout. Sweat and grime accumulate while exercising, and let’s not forget about the shared gym mats one comes in contact with. Wash off soon after so that it doesn’t sit on the skin for too long.
