Dealing with constant breakouts is never fun and can really put a damper on your daily mood. If you have naturally oily skin, the battle with breakouts can seem never-ending. If you’re always feeling like your skin can’t catch a break, you may be unknowingly practicing some breakout-causing habits. Before you panic over your next breakout, see if you’re guilty of these daily habits.
Rushing your nightly routine: After a long day, it’s so tempting to just hit the hay without taking your makeup off. However, it’s just not a good idea for anyone. Relying on solely makeup wipes or only cleansing once is a surefire to welcome bacteria on your skin. Even if you don’t wear makeup, you should thoroughly cleanse and hydrate your face at night. Take your time cleansing your skin and if you have acne-prone skin, be gentle. Rubbing harshly can also cause irritation and spread bacteria.
Keeping dirty makeup brushes: You would never grab dirt off the ground and pat your face with it, so don’t let your makeup brushes go unwashed. Cleaning them regularly will help keep your skin free from unnecessary bacteria that can cause breakouts.
