The teenage years are some of the toughest years that we will go through in our lives. There is so much that we need to go through: homework, school, people from the other gender and the biggest problem of then all acne! This one thing has plagued all of our lives by appearing at the times that we really do not want it to! However, there are certain things that you can stop applying on your face to make sure that your skin stays clear and as acne free as possible.
Now no one is telling you to stop applying makeup altogether, however do not keep it on overnight. As soon as you come home from your night out, make sure to remove all the makeup that you had applied. Keeping the makeup overnight clogs your pores and leads to a number of skin problems.
2. Shampoo on skin
Making this mistake is something a lot of us might be guilty of. If there is no face wash at home, we think of using the shampoo on our face. What harm could it even cause? The answer is, a lot. Using shampoo on your face will make your skin very dry and might give rise to acne!
3. Hair color
If you are someone who has colored her eyebrows to match with the color of her hair, you will need to use some hair color on your face. But do not make the mistake of using the same color you had used on your hair. Those colors can irritate the skin near your eye and can make your eyes tear up.
4. Hair spray
When you are using this on your hair, you need to be very careful. In case the spray makes it on to your face, it will dry your skim. It can also make your skin bumpy and make you look older than you are. So the next time you use hair spray, be very careful around your face.
5. Body lotion
The only cream that should even go near your face is your sunscreen. Nothing else is going to work on your skin and will only end up irritating it. Body lotions are very thick and also contain substances that are used to make them smell good. Both these things are going to react harshly with your skin and its pores.
6. Nail polish
I know what you are thinking, who puts nail polish on their faces? However, when there are themed parties around people do end up using polish to paint their faces. This is a very, very bad idea and you should never ever do it. Use specially designed face paint for such occasions.
Make sure none of the above substances come in contact with your skin and you will have greater chances of getting rid of that acne. Also do make sure that you don’t pick at your acne as that will leave horrible scars. Even though it is tough, wait it out and your skin will clear up.
