Skincare is a funny old thing. Sometimes you get it right and others you get it so wrong. We’ve all got our bad habits so I thought it’d be fun to list the mistakes we’ve all made (or make!) in today’s post. I would love to hear of any others you can think of below in the comments.


– copy some else’s routine in hope we’ll look like them
-not thoroughly wash our make up off
– we overload the skin with products
– refusing the wear SPF ‘in case it breaks us out’
– eating copious amount of sugar and then wondering why zits appear
– using the same products year round without switching to richer products for the winter
– not washing our pillowcases enough
– or our make up brushes
– opt for the cheap option vs. the more expensive that contains more gentle, good-for-skin ingredients
– we pop the pimples and pick the sores
– use harsh exfoliators too often
– not drinking enough water
– skipping moisturiser in hope for less oily skin
– cranking up the hot showers even though it’s we know our skin needs luke warm water
– constantly touch our face throughout the day



What are some bad skincare habits you’re guilty of?

    Haha, yes! I overload with product sometimes, don’t wash my pillowcase enough and it’s taken me ages to realise using moisturiser won’t make me oiler/break out (as long as it’s a suitable one). I was scared of moisturising for years! LOL

    OMG Yes! Not washing our pillow cases enough, Ha! That one is so me, I thought I was the only one – so guilty. Brushes too, actually, half of this post. There comes a time in everyone’s life when I just think we give up and stop caring. At least, I do ahah.

    Hahaha, yes to so many of these!!!

    You should see your pillowcases under a blue light. You think they’re clean but….. the stains don’t come out!! The students get such a shock when they see it.

    I’m HORRIBLE for touching my face, it’s actually disgusting how often I catch myself doing it!! I’m pretty good otherwise though, I’d say constantly trying new things and switching up my routine is my other bad skincare habit – I just can’t stick to products!
