The 10 skincare mistakes everyone makes that 'will cause serious damage'

1. Pulling on the skin when applying products

Doing this can cause dryness and will prevent products from being absorbed properly. Instead, gently rub the products in circular motions or tap them lightly.

2. Skipping or using products in the wrong order

If you skip products, you miss out on benefits like removing residual dirt and oil from your face, while applying them incorrectly reduces effectiveness.

3. Do not apply skin care on the chest and neck.

Applying moisturizing products to the neck and chest is important to reduce signs of premature aging, as these delicate areas are especially prone to dehydration.

4. Putting dirty fingers in product jars

You’ll encourage the spread of bacteria if you use dirty fingers in your skincare routine, which can lead to clogged pores and acne breakouts.

5. Washing your face with water that is too hot or too cold

Washing with water that is too cold can trap debris in the skin while sealing pores, while washing with water that is too hot can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness.

6. Applying too many products at once

Overdoing your skincare routine can cause redness, dry skin, congestion, breakouts, and even dermatitis. Start with a simple routine and slowly build up to it over time.

7. Using too much of a product at one time

Excessive use of a product can cause overload of the skin, such as dry patches or sudden breakouts. Always use the recommended amount on the product and discontinue immediately if your skin feels irritated.

8. Touch dirty surfaces and then your face.

Similar to dipping dirty fingers into jars of products, touching your face with dirty hands will spread bacteria and cause oil and congestion.

9. Do not apply sunscreen daily

You should apply sunscreen before leaving the house, especially because of the risk of sun damage and skin cancer. SPF will protect you against environmental pollutants, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles.

10. Itchy or irritated skin blemishes.

Constantly picking at skin spots will lead to flaky skin, bumps, blemishes, and permanent scarring.
