Acne is something everyone struggles with at some point in their life. No one likes it, no one wants it, and everybody just wants to get rid of it. There are plenty of products out there to help you, but you might be doing things everyday that are hurting your skin! Here are some quick tips for keeping your skin healthy and clean.
Change your pillow case
You sleep on your pillow every night, sometimes you sit on it, you throw your clothes on it, your pillow goes through a lot. There are so many germs that congregate on your pillow and pillow case so it is essential that you wash it at least one every two weeks. If you are sick I recommend changing it after a couple nights, it really makes a difference.
Wash your face cloth
Washing your face is an essential part of keeping your skin healthy. Using the same washcloth after weeks of wiping off makeup and dirt can cause a build up of germs. Change your washcloth on a weekly basis to ensure cleaner cleaning.
Wipe down your phone screen
So maybe you don’t use your phone for calling that much, but when you do, your phone is pressed up against your face. Your phone screen is touched by your hands too many times to count in one day, think of all those germs! Wipe your screen down with a disinfectant wipe like clorax, or buy wipes specially for screen cleaning.
Wash your hands
Going along with your phone screen, people are constantly toughing their face. We do it absentmindedly when we’re nervous, bored, or stressed. Next time you go up to touch your face, remember all the places you have put your hands, it’s kind of gross but also a mini reminder to wash your hands after touching the steering wheel, your dog, or your phone.
Clean your makeup brushes
A tip any makeup user will tell you, this is not over rated!! I used to neglect this, but I recently saw the importance of cleaning my brushes. Plus I just ordered this brush cleaner from Sephora that my friend recommended (I can’t wait to do a review!) which I hope will make things easier.
