5 Bad Skincare Habits to Avoid

Kick These 5 Bad Skincare Habits for Healthier, More Radiant Skin

1. Don’t over exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin is very important despite having oily or dry skin. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells. This is great for changing the texture of your skin, and gently avoids breakouts. As much as exfoliation can benefit your skin, it is important not to over-exfoliate. Examples of over exfoliation include exfoliating every day or with harsh ingredients. Skin exfoliation should be done once or twice a week. A lot of exfoliation products include fruit seeds, walnuts or salt. You can tell if your skin is over exfoliated if your skin is more sensitive, red, and is experiencing burning sensations. A great exfoliation product is the Clear Essence Platinum Extra Strength Medicated Cleansing bar Plus Exfoliants. It is perfect for those fighting skin texture and acne because of how gentle, yet effective it is!

2. Don’t go to bed with makeup on

Although you may feel lazy after a hard day of work, taking your makeup off before heading to bed is the most important step when taking care of your skin. Getting your beauty sleep is a necessity, and you can’t do that without clean and clear skin. Sleeping with makeup on can cause your skin’s pores to get clogged and lead to more breakouts and skin irritation. Missing this one step can deter the skin’s cell generation process that occurs when you sleep. Without regenerating skin cells, you may see consequences such as premature aging, and even eyelash lice! A great skin cleanser is the Clear Essence Exclusive Brightening Foaming Cleanser. This new product is known for cleaning the skin to get rid of blemishes, uneven skin tone and fight acne and breakouts with salicylic acid. However, it is very hydrating and suits all skin types.

3. Always wear sunscreen!

Many people think that just because they are not in direct sunlight, their skin is protected! However, the sun can be just as harmful on a gloomy day as UV rays can penetrate through clouds. Without wearing sunscreen, you may experience premature aging, sunburns and even skin cancer. The Exclusive Hydroquinone-Free Medicated Fade Creme with Sunscreen not only protects your skin from the sun, but actually fades away sun spots and hyperpigmentation on the skin.

4. Don’t avoid moisturizer because you have oily skin

A big skincare myth is that you should not wear moisturizer if you have oily skin! No matter what your skin type is, your skin needs hydration to help regulate oil production. When you don’t give your skin hydration, your skin produces excess oil to compensate. However, all products are different so you just need to find a moisturizer that works for you. When looking for moisturizers, look for one that is lightweight, oil free and gentle. A great moisturizer for oily skin is the Exclusive Hydroquinone-Free Skin Beautifying Milk – Maxi Tone from Clear Essence! It’ll make your skin flawless by evening out your skin tone and fading discoloration as well.

5. Don’t forget to moisturize your lips!

You can’t make sure your skin is hydrated but your lips aren’t! I’m sure we have all had experiences where our lips were so chapped that they were cracking and bleeding. Make sure to avoid that pain by applying chapstick or lip balm to keep your lips luscious and hydrated. This Woman of Grace lip balm from Clear Essence’s Adure line comes in two different flavors: strawberry and watermelon. Not only is it adorable and tastes amazing, but it’s made from all natural beeswax and contains Vitamin E for long-lasting hydration! You can buy one for a dollar or buy them in bulk!
