For those of us who are staying at home during the pandemic, many things are different than they were before. Has your skincare regime changed? Some people are using this extra free time to focus on skincare while others may touch and pick their skin more due to stress. Here are three common harmful things you should stop doing.

Over Cleansing

You may feel the need to use cleansing products more often if you’re not wearing makeup, but that can lead to drying out the skin and it can be difficult to keep it moisturized. Don’t use cleansers more than twice per day and choose gentle products.

“Taking a Break” from Skincare

Some people believe that their skin needs a break from skincare now that they’re at home all the time, but that’s simply not true. You don’t have to do much, but some steps are necessary, like washing your face and applying a moisturizer.

Bad Sleeping Habits

Too little or too much sleep can leave trace on your skin. Depriving yourself of sleep will make the bags under your eyes appear while sleeping too much can make your face bloated.
