skincare mistakes If you are dedicated to your skincare routine and yet still find yourself battling blemishes, it may be because of skincare mistakes you don't realise you're making! Keep reading below to find out all the beauty faux pas' that are commonly made.

Touching Your Face

It's an unconscious habit many of us have, but constantly touching your face means that you're transferring all the bacteria that your hands have acquired throughout the day right into your pores. What's more, rubbing and pulling at your face puts stress on the skin. Think about when you apply eyeliner, we often tend to pull the skin tight to make application easier. But this is really detrimental to the skin. Since your eye area is very delicate, it loses elasticity more easily resulting in lines and wrinkles. So just try to consciously be more gentle on your skin as a whole and having a good eye cream is essential.

Dirty Mobile Phones

Think about how many times a day you touch your phone or leave it on a (likely) dirty surface. Ten think about how you press it against your face...yuck. All that dirt and grime on your phone get direct contact to your skin. So be sure to wipe down the screen at least once a week, if not daily.

Excessive Exfoliating

We all know exfoliating is important but excessive exfoliation can cause irritation. Exfoliating daily is definitely too harsh on the skin. It is recommended that you exfoliate up to 3 times a week.

Applying Skincare Incorrectly

Yes, unfortunately, there is a right and wrong way to apply your skincare. If you apply your products in the wrong order, then they can struggle to penetrate your skin, leaving the product useless and your skin unable to gain any benefit. Applying products in the right order will help you get the most out of your skincare routine. Learn how to properly layer your skincare.

Ignoring Dehydrated Skin

If your skin feels tight and starts to flake, just slathering on a random thick cream is one of the skincare mistakes many make. You need to introduce and combine a hyaluronic acid-based hydrator into your routine, before applying a moisturiser to give skin a water content boost.
