You’ve been religious about your face cleansing and hydrating routine, so what’s gone wrong?

It could be caused by monthly hormonal changes, or by stress at home, work or school. But it could also be one of these 5 skin care mistakes that can make a mess of your complexion.




 
 
1. Over Washing

If your skin has been overly dry, or if it feels “filmy”, like there’s a built up layer of dead skin, you may be washing too much, and drying your skin out.

Washing too much causes your skin to get too dried out. That causes your sebaceous (oil-producing) glands to jump into overdrive, and you end up with skin that’s insufficiently hydrated but oily. It’s like a recipe for breakouts.
 
 
 
2. Using Maximum-Strength Cleansers

Stronger doesn’t always equal better, especially when you’re talking about the delicate skin on your face.

Low-strength benzoyl peroxide doesn’t work any better than the maximum strength formula for most people. However, the stronger formula is much more likely to cause dryness and skin irritation.
 
 
 
3. Changing Your Skin Care Products Too Often

It’s human nature to always be on the lookout for something different, but skincare is like walking a tight rope of pH and hydration. You may be eager to try the newest serum from your favorite line of skin care products, but it could throw your skin off balance.

Don’t switch too many things at the same time; try new products one at a time so if there’s a problem you’ll know what caused it.
 
 
 
4. Using Allergenic Shampoos or Conditioners

Most people wouldn’t think of blaming their hair care products for their sudden breakout of blemishes, but they could very well be behind the problem.

Allergies or sensitivity to your shampoo or condition often show up on your face, your shoulders, your back – any part of the body that gets exposed to them.
 
 
 
5. Not Using Sun Screen
