Does your skin feel dry? Do you often find cracks on your skin? Well, there are obviously a lot of factors that can contribute to skin problems, but one of the most often overlooked is bad skincare habits. Whether we realize or not (and often we don’t) some of our daily skincare routines might actually do more harm than good. So, let’s have a closer look, shall we?

First of all, we usually use products packed in jars. Why is that a bad thing? A lot of the beauty products we use contain antioxidants, and these break down when exposed to light and air. When the product is placed in a jar, this happens very often, so the product becomes less and less effective. The solution is simple: pick tubes.




Besides packaging it’s also important that we don’t fall into the habit of using too many products, which could lead to irritation. If that sounds easy to avoid, then don’t forget that we should also avoid using products out of order. Put simply, we should move from thin products towards thicker ones. Heavier products can block lighter ones from actually reaching the skin.




Now, speaking of habits, we all know that not enough sleep is not healthy. Problem is, even if we do get enough sleep, having your face pressed into a pillow for long periods of time can cause trauma to your skin (permanent creases, for example)... which gets worse if you use cotton pillow covers. Switching to satin or silk is a good idea.




Oh, and let’s not forget another thing that we often press to our faces: cellphones. Bacteria can gather on your phone, so it’s best to clean it regularly. Also, the pressure on your face when you talk on your phone will trap oil in... which might trigger zits. Remember your phone’s speakerphone option...

Yet another common problem is going to bed without removing makeup. Yes, this happens more often than we imagine, and the unremoved makeup will clog your oil glands and cause your pores to become larger. Now, we don’t want that to happen, right?
