We make mistakes, and we learn from them. But if you have I don’t care attitude or make mistakes knowingly, then you need some serious change in your attitude as this approach won’t take you anywhere, in fact, it may only bring bad news. The point that we are trying to make here is we all do a lot of things in our routines that aren’t necessarily related to life itself but beauty. For instance, sleeping with your makeup on is one of the biggest beauty sins. It may seem harmless to some, but they don’t realize what they are getting into. Makeup not only does good things to you, but it could also backfire, hence you should always play safe from your end. This was one of the many examples of how we end up committing so many beauty mistakes without realizing it. It can easily hamper your beauty game, and if you don’t want that, then you need to break up with some common beauty habits of yours ASAP.
Using makeup wipes to remove makeup before going to bed
Work can be pretty tiring at times and often leaves you with no energy to do anything other than sleep peacefully in your bed, but you can’t do that before removing your makeup, right? While it may seem like a great idea to use makeup wipes to remove your makeup, it isn’t exactly the best solution to this problem. In fact, using makeup wipes is a bad idea. They not only cause damage to your skin but also leave residue behind. Hence, you should avoid using these makeup wipes and opt for either a cleansing oil, balm, or micellar water to remove your makeup.
Constantly picking at your skin
This is something that most of us have done and still do, which is really really bad. While popping your pimples (and others as well) is one of the most satisfying things to do and also kind of help to minimize the size, picking at your skin is one of the worst things you can do to your delicate skin. If you don’t want to end up with nasty scars on your skin, then you should learn to leave your pimples alone. But if you so desperately want them to go away, you can use spot treatments to accelerate the healing process.
Over-exfoliating your skin
Exfoliation is something that most of us got familiar with a few years back only, but given its importance in skincare, it has become a crucial part of our skincare routines. The purpose of exfoliation is to remove dead and dry skin cells from the skin, but when you overdo it, it ends up removing the top layer of your skin, leading to serious damage. Therefore, you shouldn’t exfoliate your skin more than twice a week. Also, you should only use a mild, gentle scrub for this job; a harsh scrub will end up damaging your skin.
Using too many different products
We get to discover a new beauty product every day, watching other people using those products and raving about them makes us want to get our hands on them, which we end up doing most times. if you are also guilty, then you need to break up with this habit of yours as using too many different products at a time can leave your skin confused, which could lead to skin woes like irritation, allergies, redness, etc. Therefore, if you want to use new products, try them one by one. Instead of changing your skincare routine entirely, incorporate new products in your routine slowly.
