Skincare is an increasingly popular health routine. Whether you are using a hydrating mask or simply putting on a bit of cleanser in the shower, a good routine can reap wonderful results for your skin. This video explains what to avoid using in your skincare routine.
The first thing to avoid is bar soap. It may be convenient in the shower, but it doesn’t do much for healthy facial skin. It dries skin out and contains chemicals that are not great for health. It’s fine for your body, but not your face.
Petroleum jelly is another substance to avoid using on your face. It is seen as the best moisturizer and has been used in this regard for a long time. However, it clogs your pores and can cause acne. In fact, the doctor in the video recommends not using petroleum jelly for any part of your body.
Body moisturizer seems like it should be totally fine on your face, right? Unfortunately, that is not the case. It can clog your pores and cause you to break out in acne. The last thing to avoid is rubbing alcohol. While it can be great for getting a nice clean feel, it gets rid of the protective oils your skin needs.
