There are a lot of factors that affect the health of your skin. With so many external influences, skincare became a bit more complicated and it is easy to make mistakes. Many women fail to follow a few simple rules that can improve the quality of their skin.
One common mistake is sleeping with makeup on. A lot of women still do it and it affects their skin negatively. Proper skincare products need to be used every single time to remove makeup before going to bed. Having the makeup on for long periods causes your skin to be unable to breathe. It can also increase your chances of developing acne.
Another common mistake is not cleaning your smartphone. The screen of a smartphone can carry thousands of different bacteria that get transferred onto your face and can affect your skin. You need to clean your smartphone regularly and use skincare products to cleanse your face and remove impurities, contaminants, and bacteria at least once per day. Ideally, you should cleanse your skin when you get home. When you clean your skin you should also clean your phone.
The subject of exfoliating is also controversial. Some women do it too much while other women do not do it enough. There are plenty of skincare products that can make exfoliating dead skin easy and pain-free. With so many choices, there is no excuse not to do it. Doing it once per week should be enough.
During those 7 days, your skin will be exposed to external contaminants as well as internal factors. These two combined cause dead skin to appear. In some extreme cases, the skin will start appearing flaky or it can cause small infections. Exfoliation with proper skincare products is necessary to avoid such situations and give your skin the chance to recover.
