1. Ignoring ingredients.
Sure, you love that way that cleanser smells or that foundation makes your face looks, but did you take a look at the ingredient list? Common chemical allergens are lurking in a lot of products: stay away from things like formaldehyde and yucky petroleum.
2. Showering in boiling water.
Women seem to be able to withstand temperatures likened to the inside of a volcano when it comes to showering. A simple tip: turn the temperature down and you’ll see a reduction in redness and inflammation.
3. Exfoliating too much.
Yes, babe. I said it. There is such a thing as too much scrubbing. You should be scrubbing your face only 1 – 2 times per week if you’re a sensitive skinned babe and when you do, do it gently. Use a manual exfoliant, not a chemical one, so you can control the intensity of the process.
4. Blasting breakouts.
This week your challenge is to quit using harsh ingredients on your zits and swap for a targeted oil. Try dabbing a spot of primrose oil right on that spot for a gentle extermination. Follow with a, hydrating moisturiser that contains Shea Butter – known for it’s power anti-inflammatory properties. Perhaps, try mine?
5. Wearing make up on the couch.
If you’re home, take your makeup off. The characters in the netflix series you’re binge watching can’t see you.
