5 Things You Should Stop Doing To Your Skin

It's time for an intervention. You may not always be aware of it, but there things that we constantly do to our skin that keeps it from being healthy and glowing. If you're guilty of at least one of these, it's time to change your lifestyle!

Here are 5 things you have to stop doing to your skin. 


Do not Prick Your Pimples

If you want to deal with pimple marks, scars, and uneven skin tone then go ahead. However, if you want to make life easier for you in the long run, stop the urge to touch and prick those pimples. This will not help in removing them, in fact you're just making it worse. Let them be or apply a clearing gel and let them heal on their own. 

Do Not Use Your Products In The Wrong Order

You may have the best products in the world but they are worth nothing if you don't use them in the correct order. Remember: cleanse, tone, moisturise. Your serums, under eye products, and spot treatment comes after toning but before moisturising. Each product is much more effective when used in the right order and it will maximize the potential of your skin to reach its healthy state faster. 

Do Not Forget To Apply Sunscreen

If you have not been aware of it, Global Warming is real, and the extra harsh UV rays that come with it damages your skin faster everyday if you don't apply sunscreen. Applying sunscreen, or any product that has SPF 15 or higher (for the face) and SPF 50 or higher (for the body) will reduce the signs of skin again, damaged and dehydrated skin, sunburn, and even something as serious as skin cancer. 

Do Not Use Harsh Cleaners

If you have oily or combination skin, or you're currently undergoing a massive breakout, it may seem logical to use a cleanser that gives you a squeaky clean feeling. What most people don't know is that those cleansers and exfoliators actually strip the skin of all its good oils and diminish its own natural protective barrier. When this happens, your face produces more oil resulting in more breakouts. 

Do Not Sleep Late

If you're catching a deadline and you really need to pull an all-nighter then by all mean, go ahead. However, if this happens regularly then don't be surprised if a pimple or two pops up. Lack of sleep causes breakouts, dry skin, and eye bags. The best cure is prevention--fix your schedule and sleep early!
