See Skincare Mistakes You’re Making That Are Causing You To Break Out

Mistakes are an inevitable part of life. We are all bound to make them, especially when we don’t even know the difference between right and wrong. And when it comes to skincare, there is a very thin line between right and wrong!

Skincare mistakes can easily cost you your flawless skin and prevent you from getting the glow that should be yours. They can lead to hyperpigmentation, scarring and even acne spots. Do you know that you might have been responsible for your recent acne breakouts? Yes, it is possible that you’re making some skincare mistakes causing you to break out. And the sad part is you probably don’t know what you’re doing wrong.


Over cleansing

Cleansing is great. In fact, it’s one of the key aspects of a great skincare routine. However, it is possible to overdo it. When your skin has been over-cleansed, your skin is literally naked. Its natural oils have been stripped away (kind of like the Black Panther from King T’Challa) and it will feel the need to overproduce oils to make up for what has been lost and excess oils will lead to clogged pores and eventually acne.

Not sure if you’re over cleansing? The next time you cleanse, check to see if your skin feels really tight and has dry patches right after. If you do, then put the cleanser down dahling.

To avoid this, stick to cleansing your face twice a day (morning & night) to balance everything out. And if you have dry skin, stay away from cleansers with alcohol because that will really dry out your skin.

Rinsing your skin too fast

Another skincare mistake you could be making is rinsing your skin too quickly. If you have acne-prone skin, or already have breakouts, you need to use products with salicylic acid. This acid is packed with BHA’s that literally scoop the dirt and sebum out of your skin. But it needs time to work its magic.

When you use your product (cleanser, toner etc) be sure to leave it on your skin for a good amount of time while working it into your skin.

A great way to do this is to use your skincare product with a facial cleansing brush. Spend the time working it in so it does a great job before you’re ready to rinse.

Not thoroughly rinsing in the shower

If you find that you’re breaking out along your hairline, neck and back, that means you’re not completely rinsing well in the shower. Basically, there is leftover shampoo, makeup, conditioner etc on your body that is leading to the acne breakout.

Fix this by making sure that after you shampoo or condition your hair, you wash your body again to ensure it is clean. Also, run a cleanser-soaked cotton pad along your hairline to ensure all makeup residue is gone.
