Dermatologists Want You To Stop These 9 Worst Skincare Habits


Sleeping with Makeup On

Leaving makeup on while you sleep can obstruct your pores, resulting in acne and dull skin. Always remove cosmetics before going to bed.


Using Harsh Cleansers

Using cleansers containing harsh ingredients can deplete your skin of its natural oils and disrupt its moisture barrier. 



Exfoliating is beneficial, but excessive exfoliation or the use of abrasive exfoliants can damage the skin's protective barrier.


Picking at Your Skin

Picking at acne, scabs, or other skin flaws can cause inflammation, scarring, and infection. Do not touch or pick at your epidermis.


Skipping Sunscreen

The omission of sunscreen can result in premature aging, sunspots, and an increased risk of skin cancer. 


Overloading on Products

Utilizing an excessive amount of hygiene products at once can overwhelm the skin and increase the likelihood of irritation. 


Ignoring Moisturizer

Moisturizing is essential for maintaining hydrated and healthy skin. Choose a moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin type and use it daily.


Using Expired Products

Skincare products that have expired may be less effective and may contain bacteria. Examine the expiration dates and dispose of any expired items.


Neglecting Regular Skin Check-ups

Regular dermatologist visits are essential for the early detection and prevention of skin conditions.
