To enjoy healthy skin, you need to understand it. This means that you need to come up with a well-researched skin routine that will not give you problems. Do you have oily skin? Here are a few do-not tips to help keep those pesky pimples at bay and to ensure that you skin lives happily ever after.
Don’t Touch Your Face
Picking at pimples on your face turns little problems to big ones. You are adding more germs to your face when you do this, making it difficult to get rid of them. Keep your hands away from your face. Do not get carried away and even attempt to rest your chin or cheeks in your hands while daydreaming at your work desk. If you find this difficult to do, sensitize your hands regularly.
Change Your Pillowcases
Don’t sleep on a dirty pillowcase because they absorb plenty of grime and grease. You spend over eight hours resting your face on them, so imagine the amount of dirt your face can welcome. What you need to do here is to always wash your face before bedtime. We will not suggest that you change your bedspreads every other day. But we will advise you to keep a stash of pillowcases and change them every 24 hours.
Avoid Overusing Medication
Are you looking forward to a high school reunion or wedding and an acne breakout tends to throw it into jeopardy? Don’t get desperate and drench your face in one treatment after the other. Yes, you are trying to make your condition go away. However, it could actually end up worsening it. It could leave you with irritated skin simply because you are using too many products at once.
Be Friends Forever With Moisturizers
Even if you have oily skin, you still need to moisturize it. If you do not moisturize your skin, it overcompensates by generating more oils. Moisturize daily and stick to one lightweight formula that keeps your skin hydrated without too much shine.
