10 Beauty Tricks SQ Girls Practice To Look Gorgeous All The Time - cleanse face wash

#1 Cleansing or exfoliating too much

Although clean skin forms the basis for good skin, over-cleansing and over-exfoliating can cause irritation. The key is always moderation – use a scrub twice a week, and when you do so, remember to lay off the chemical exfoliants and the use of a cleansing gadget. Using all these at once will definitely cause redness and irritation. 


#2 Only using makeup wipes to remove your makeup

Makeup remover wipes are an amazing invention; they are easy to use, require no rinsing and perfect for travelling. While we won’t judge if you don’t wash your face after removing your makeup with wipes, especially if you’ve had a long day, doing so in the long run can cause a few problems. 

Removing your makeup with a wipe just smears your makeup around and might not completely remove residual makeup in the pores. Some makeup are harder to clean off, so a second wash with a cleanser is necessary. 


#3 Using acids and vitamin C during the day 

Skincare products like glycolic acid and lactic acid are great for chemical exfoliation to help skin appear brighter. However, they also make the skin more susceptible to sun damage, and should be kept for use during the night. 

That said, it also means you should load up on the sunscreen the following morning to ensure that skin is protected from UV rays. 

#4 Using a clay mask too often

Clay masks are a godsend for a multitude of reasons; they can soak up excess sebum, clarify pores and exfoliate skin. However, as mentioned previously, over-exfoliation can do more harm than good for your skin. Keep the use of clay masks to a maximum of twice a week.
