11 Mistakes That Are Harming Your Skin

We're diving into the 11 common daily mistakes we see people doing daily that are harming their skin. If you're wondering why you always have dry skin, can't move past a breakout, or seem to be aging faster than your grandma, then you'll want to read this.

Taking care of your skin is essential for maintaining its health and radiance. Let's explore common mistakes and learn how to make healthier choices for your skin.

1. Over-Exfoliating
While exfoliation can remove dead skin cells and promote a brighter complexion, overdoing it can damage your skin's protective barrier. Limit exfoliation to a couple of times a week to prevent irritation.

2. Not Removing Makeup Before Bed
Leaving makeup on overnight can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Always cleanse your face before bedtime to let your skin breathe and rejuvenate.

3. Using Hot Water for Cleansing
Hot showers might be relaxing, but they can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated. Opt for lukewarm water to cleanse your face and body gently.

4. Skipping Oil
No matter your skin type, oil is crucial to maintain proper hydration. Skipping oil can lead to dryness and even more oil production in an attempt to compensate.

5. Neglecting Sunscreen
Failing to use sunscreen daily can lead to sun damage, premature aging, and skin cancer. Dark spots and pigmentation on the face can appear when you don't apply sunscreen. Make sunscreen an essential part of your skincare routine, regardless of the weather or season.

6. Using Chemical-Laden Skincare Products
You've heard me say this a million times, and I'll keep saying it because putting harsh chemicals on your skin isn't how to create healthy skin. These chemicals strip your skin of its natural oils, cause irritation and absorb into your bloodstream. Many of these chemicals are carcinogens, an ingredient capable of causing cancer.

Opt for products with gentle, natural ingredients to ensure your skin remains balanced and healthy. This is why we use only plant-based, natural ingredients to formulate each of our products.

7. Ignoring a Balanced Diet
Your diet plays a significant role in your skin's health. A lack of essential nutrients can lead to dullness and skin issues. Incorporate a variety of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats into your meals.

8. Not Drinking Enough Water
Hydration is key for plump, healthy skin. Not drinking enough water can leave your skin looking lacklustre and contribute to dryness.

9. Using Dirty Makeup Brushes
Dirty makeup brushes can harbour bacteria and lead to breakouts. Regularly clean your brushes to ensure they're not causing harm to your skin.

10. Not Getting Enough Sleep
Lack of sleep can lead to dark circles, puffiness, and overall skin fatigue. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night to allow your skin to regenerate.

11. Stress and Poor Lifestyle Choices
Chronic stress, smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption can negatively impact your skin's appearance. Practising stress-reducing techniques and making healthier lifestyle choices can contribute to better skin health.

Taking care of your skin involves making conscious choices and avoiding common mistakes that could harm its health and appearance. From choosing natural skincare products to practising good habits like using sunscreen and getting enough sleep, you can promote radiant, youthful skin for years to come.

Remember, every small change you make in your skincare routine can positively impact your skin's overall well-being.
