now let's find out what you've been

doing wrong starting with number one you

use facial scrubs too often a facial

scrubs job is to exfoliate and cleanse

your face it's an effective skincare

procedure to slough away dead flakey

skin cells and reveal the smooth

healthier skin underneath but how often

should you use facial scrubs how can you

tell if you're exfoliating too much well

for a start you'll notice telltale signs

like flakiness dryness stinging

sensations and redness in addition

you'll notice that your skin is shiny

tight and tingly you had a bad girl the

key to proper exfoliation depends on

your skin type for normal to combination

skin it is three times a week for oily

skin five times a week for sensitive

skin once or twice a week

anti-aging experts dr. Aaron Tabor also

suggests avoiding facial scrubs that

contain ground seeds or shells because

the sharp edges can harm your skin

instead of scrubs that can injure the

upper layer of the epidermis use

chemical based facial scrubs that'll

help you remove dirt from your pores


number two you use anti wrinkle cream

and think it's enough anti-aging creams

can do wonders for your skin by reducing

fine lines wrinkles and age spots

unfortunately the only way to get rid of

wrinkles completely is to visit a

plastic surgeon instead be proactive and

delay the appearance of wrinkles for as

long as possible by moisturizing your

skin on a regular basis dermatologist

robin ashenoff MD of Hackensack

University Medical Center advises that

prevention is the best medicine against

skin aging what if the best solutions is

staying out of the Sun well that's

practically impossible for most of us so

make it a habit to apply sunscreen SPF

30 or higher on a daily basis before you

leave home yes do this even when you're

not going to the beach


number three after washing your face you

dry it with a towel of course you should

dry your face after washing but maybe

you're doing it the wrong way don't dry

your face by rubbing it with a towel as

this can damage your skin you will

irritate and inflame your poor pimples

and force bacteria deep into your pores

cutter gently pat your face with a towel

and then let it air dry avoid using the

nearest bath towel or kitchen towel use

a special towel preferably an organic

cotton towel just for your face again

use this towel exclusively for your face

and nothing else and remember to change

it regularly why here's a dirty secret

dr. Susan Whittier director of the

clinical microbiology lab at Columbia

University Medical Center reveals that

moist and damp towels are breeding

grounds for mersa the Mayo Clinic

describes mersa or methicillin-resistant

Staphylococcus aureus as an infection

caused by staph bacteria so you'll face

a bigger problem than pimples and acne

if you laze around in the hygiene

department by not changing your face


number four you sleep with your hair

down hair contains a lot of dirt and

grease that can damage the skin on your

face thanks to the pollutants outside

it also has natural oils and chemicals

from the haircare products you use every

day like shampoo conditioner and

treatments once this potent mix touches

your face it can seep into your pores

and cause breakouts

yikes the solution is simple although

you might have a problem getting used to

it what is it sleep with your hair tied

loosely enough to not cover your face

don't use elastic bands because they can

damage your hair tie it up in a loose

ponytail using a scrunchie if you find

this setup uncomfortable wrap up your

hair in a silk scarf number 5 you don't

pay attention to your pillow and

pillowcase it may seem unbelievable in

ridiculous but yep your pillow and

pillowcase can also cause pimples and

acne how they can trigger acne meccanica

such futuristic terminology for an

annoying skin problem according to dr.

David Ebanks director and founder of the

Center for dermatology cosmetic and

laser surgery acne Mechanica is a type

of acne that comes from an object or

material touching your face you can

solve this problem by changing your

pillowcase regularly but how often

change it every two to three days or at

least once a week can you escape this

household tour by using a pillowcase

made from a different material stop your

bank debunk this idea he explained that

even if your pillowcase is made of

cotton silk or satin if you don't

launder and replace it regularly it can

accumulate grime dirt and sweat do

yourself a favor don't let a dirty

pillowcase touch your face number 6 you

ignore clay masks

this is one of the most underrated skin

care treatments

it can feel heavy on your skin but it

has loads of benefit dr. Edward Ted Lane

the dermatologist based in Austin Texas

declares that clay masks contain drime

astringent and anti-inflammatory

properties that can reduce blemishes

redness and inflammation a tighten your

skin minimize acne refine pores remove

impurities and reduce eye bags and

puffiness it truly detoxifies your skin

there are different clay masks for

different skin types use kaolin clay for

normal skin types as it's the mildest of

all clay masks if you have sensitive

skin switch to Rose clay which keeps

your skin hydrated while also removing

dirt and oil for oily skin it's better

to use French green clay as it absorbs

excess oil revealing a smooth and

healthy complexion number seven

you don't eat foods that keep your skin

healthy this is the natural way to get

radiant and healthy skin instead of

gobbling up medicines that can have side

effects it's not only good for your skin

but also for your body to give you an

idea of which foods to eat here are some

items you can add to your grocery list

broccoli reduces swelling and skin

redness after sun exposure tomatoes and

apricots protect you from the sun's

harmful UV rays while also giving you a

slight tan carrots and peaches can be a

substitute for sunbathing if you eat

them on a regular basis fatty fish which

is a source of omega-3 fatty acids keeps

your skin supple and moisturized red and

yellow bell peppers can help keep your

skin firm and strong soy improves skin

elasticity keeping it smooth and healthy

your skin to be thicker and more

hydrated and it also acts as a sunscreen

number eight you hide your problems
