Here are some common skincare mistakes you should avoid while practicing your skincare routine:

 1. Using hot water to wash your face

You should never wash your face with hot water as it strips out natural oils from your skin and leaves your skin dry and parched. So always wash your face with lukewarm/ cold water. Turn down the heat and use lukewarm water.

2. Not taking your makeup off at night

One of the most common and harmful skin mistakes is to not take off your makeup before sleeping. The skin regains its moisture and repairs the damaged cells when you are asleep. Sleeping with makeup clogs the pores and doesn’t allow the skin to replenish and work to your advantage at night, this can lead to acne or breakouts.

3. Do not Over exfoliate

If you use toners, scrubs, retinoids daily you are all over-exfoliating way too much. You should only use one exfoliator at a time, as over-exfoliating makes your skin acne-prone, sensitive, and dry.  Understand your skin type and select your exfoliators wisely:

4. Not Moisturising your skin

No matter what your skin type is, you have to moisturise your skin twice a day. You should have the right moisturiser according to your skin to prevent breakouts.
