Find the correct order of skincare HERE.

#2 Not changing your pillow cases often

It's a general hygiene practice and not following it could also be one of the reasons for acne. An unclean pillow comes in contact with your skin and stays for a long duration, while you sleep. The accumulated dust on the pillow gets passed on to your skin. Also, according to research, sleeping on cotton, linen or polyester pillowcases could be a major cause of ageing. People who switched to silk or satin pillowcases noticed that they woke up with better skin and hair. HERE. #PrincessFeels

#3 Hot Showers

As much as we find hot showers relaxing, the beauty experts deter it. Our skin produces natural oil which is great for its elasticity. Hot water strip the natural oils from our skin leaving it dry and sans any barrier to block the irritants in the environment. It is recommended to use lukewarm water instead.

#4 Neglecting the neck

It's not just while using foundation but, you must never neglect the neck even when applying skincare products. Just like the rest of your face, the neck also needs the nourishment of anti-aging products and protection of sunscreen. The sun rays will have equal impact on the neck and face so its advisable to include the neck in the same skincare strategy as your face.

#5 Avoiding SPF

Never, ever forget applying SPF. If you can pass on just one beauty advice, it should be this one. The harmful sun rays have adverse affect on the skin like dark spots, wrinkles, freckles, discoloration, etc. While most people apply sunscreen before stepping out in they sun, they tend to skip it on cloudy days. It's a myth that you don't need SPF on a cool or cloudy day.

#6 Not cleaning the phone's screen

Yes, it feels like a betrayal. Our beloved gadget could be causing some skin issues. It is said that our phone's screen accumulates more bacteria than a toilet seat. Eek! So, clean the phone's screen more often and instead of bringing the phone in contact with your face, use headphones.

#7 Avoiding moisturizer if you have an oily skin

We understand that the ever-so-shiny skin makes you want to avoid moisturizer, but that's not the right thing to do. Oily skin produces a lot of sebum, but that cannot be mistaken for hydration. All skin-types need to be properly hydrated. Also, when the skin is deprived of any hydration in the form of moisturizer, it tries to over-compensate by producing more sebum.
