Breakouts, aren’t they just the worst? When you breakout you probably think its mother nature come early or you had one too many sweets, sometimes that isn’t the case. This post will walk you through some of the things that could be breaking you out.
- Pillow Cases
I know what you’re thinking, “what, pillow cases?” On average most people change their bed once every two weeks, and every night you rest your face on the same pillow over and over again until you wash them. Think of the times where you’ve fallen asleep with your make up on, moisturised your face, or even fallen asleep drooling as we all do, all those factors build up throughout the days and all the built up dirt starts to clog your pores and latch onto your face. Try changing your pillow case every 3/4 days or even just flip it over to the other side!
2. Using Body Products on Your Face
You know those times where you’re rushing to shower and you skip the face wash and just lather some body wash on your face? Wah wah! When using body products on your face even once in a while as a last resort, the ingredients are far too harsh for the delicate skin on your face hence then causing spots to surface. Instead spare a couple of seconds to take care of your skin with products meant for your face.
3. Over Exfoliating
This one is quite self explanatory, exfoliating leaves your face looking fresh and new but doing it more than 3 times a week can cause your skin to freak out and raise breakout hell!
4. Dirty Hair
I raise my hand to admit that I pretty much only wash my hair once a week (I shower everyday of course!) this is mainly because of my mission to grow my hair, but that aside, when your hair is dirty and the strands brush against your face it can cause breakouts around the perimeter of your face.
5. Gone Off Make-Up
You know that bottle of foundation you bought two years ago but then y0u found a new one, and then the new one ran out so you had to resort to your old one? Well this can cause HUGE breakouts, if you never knew foundation had an expiry date you can find it on the back, the average time for a bottle of foundation is 12 months and if you use it passed its date your skin really doesn’t like it!
