You cant stop the ageing process but there is plenty that you can do to keep your skin looking younger for longer. There are many faux pas that we do on a daily basis that lead up to those dreaded lines & wrinkles on our face.Here are the worst mistakes you are making:
Mistake # 1: Not taking off your makeup
Taking off makeup before going to bed is a MUST! Many girls dont really realise, how harmful it is for the skin, to sleep with makeup on. apart from blogged pores and the bacteria, it causes alot of breakouts! yikes! Throughout the day pollutants, dirt and bacteria seep into our skin and breaks down the collagen that gives the skin it’s elasticity. Leaving the makeup on will cause breakout, chokes the skin, dehydrate it and form wrinkles!

Mistake # 2: Not exfoliating regularly
Regular exfoliation help to remove the dead skin cell and remove all the dirt accumulated in our pores. The dead skin and dirt makes our skin look dull, sallow & old. Regular exfoliation not only cleans the skin but also brightens it up. Exfoliation also preps the skin to absorb the following skin care products like serums & moisturisers.

Mistake # 3: Picking at zits
When you see a zit on your face and have this urge to pick at it and squeeze it, you should avoid that at any cost! picking on the acne will cause the bacteria to go deeper into the skin which in turn will lead to inflammation, scarring and even wrinkles. Instead of picking on the acne, you should use anti acne face wash and spot treatment.

Mistake # 4: Not starting anti ageing products sooner

Mistake # 5: Ignoring your neck and hands
Most girls focus so much on their face that they totally ignore their necks & hands, the result of which is that the face looks much younger than the neck & hands.
