3 Common Skincare Mistakes and How to Correct Them

1. Over exfoliating: I get it, the urge to scrub off all the drama, make up and missed opportunities of the day but honey put the scrub down. Exfoliating too often can actually expose your skin to yucky germs creating acne and even infections... gross.

The Fix 
According to Glamour Magazine article "Beauty Mythbuster: How Often Should You Exfoliate Your Skin?" 
"Two to three times a week for normal and combination skin, and once a week for sensitive skin," says Dr. Tanzi. (As a refresher, combination skin is oily through the T-zone with dry cheeks, normal skin has the same amount of oil throughout, and sensitive skin gets red and irritated easily.)
2. Under Moisturizing: The truth about oily skin is that it's overworked and underpaid honey. What do I mean by that exactly? Your oily skin NEEDS hydration, when your skin is extra oily, it is actually trying to overcompensate for the moisture it's lacking.

The Fix 
Try a water based moisturizer. These creams are perfect for those with oily skin, water doesn't bind to the skin like an oil based moisturizer would, decreasing the chance of your pores clogging which can lead to breakouts.

3. Not following a routine based on your skin type: Me and my BFF share pretty much everything,  deep dark secrets, drunken mom nights in, but what we can't share are the same skincare products. She's dry, I'm oily and as much as we would love to add skincare into the list o'things we share the bottom line is we can't. Using products that do not best fit your skin type can actually cause your skin to act up even more. Remember you can't always try the "It" new product, some things just aren't for you babe.

The Fix
Take a moment and figure out your skin type here. Pitch, donate, store for decoration the products that just aren't for you and keep your eyes peeled for the perfect ingredients for your skin.
