3 minute read

Welcome to the world of skincare, where we slather, scrub, and strive for that elusive glow! While we're all on a quest for flawless skin, it's essential to tread lightly on this treacherous path, lest we stumble upon skincare mistakes that make our faces scream, "What were you thinking?!" So, gather 'round, fellow beauty enthusiasts, as we embark on a cheeky journey to uncover the cringe-worthy blunders you should avoid like the plague (or a really persistent pimple). Brace yourselves for some serious skincare enlightenment, sprinkled with a generous dose of wit, because laughter might not be the best medicine, but it sure beats crying over a breakout!

20+ simple mistakes that are ruining your skincare routine: 

    1. Not removing all of the cleanser or soap from your face and body after cleansing
    2. Not using an emulsifying oil cleanser if you have incorporated a chemical sunscreen into your routine 
    3. Skin picking or picking at whiteheads, blackheads, inflamed pimples, and not utilizing pimple patches
    4. Using too many active skincare products at once 
    5. Over exfoliating your skin 
    6. Not wearing sunscreen with your vitamin C 
    7. Not wearing sunscreen in general 
    8. Brushing your teeth after you complete your skincare routine 
    9. Using your Vitamin C Serum at night 
    10. Ignoring signs of dehydration
    11. Not cleaning your makeup brushes (big skin-care no no!) 
    12. Applying skincare in the wrong order 
    13. Using the wrong products for your skin type 
    14. Applying Hyaluronic Acid to dry skin
    15. When you experience skin-care pilling, you're not making the necessary adjustments to fix the problem
    16. Not taking your time when applying and layering product
    17. Showering in or using water that is too hot on your face and body
    18. Not slapping your skincare on (gently) to increase blood flow
    19. Letting Tik Tok and micro and macro skin-influencers convince you to buy unnecessary products
    20. Not treating your pimples and instead popping pimples, which actually make your acne problems worse!
    21. Not getting your beauty rest
    22. Using products that are high in fragrances when you have sensitive skin
    23. Excessive drinking and not adequatly hydrating before and after 
    24. Focusing on skin appearance, rather than optimal skin health 
    25. Not using a clay mask, especially if you have oily skin 
    26. Not considering gut health and a reduction of processed food consumption in your skincare routine 
    27. Excessive tanning and tanning beds is a big skin-care no no!
    28. Using harsh makeup wipes instead of a cleanser
    29. Misusing chemical peels 
    30. Letting a man stress you out... actually letting ANYONE stress you out
    31. Not taking your vitamins 
    32. Not applying enough sunscreen 
    33. Constantly touching your face 
    34. Not patch testing products prior to going all in 
    35. Not washing your skin after the gym or excessive sweating 
    36. Drying your face with a towel (especially the same one you use on your body)


Skincare ingredients that you should never mix together: 

  • Retinol or Retinoid with Vitamin C: Both too strong and destabilize each other. One skin care product is best for night application and the other is for the morning 
  • Benzoyl Peroxide and Aha/Bha Acids 
  • Retinoid or Retinol and Salicylic Acid 
  • Soap Based Cleanser and Vitamin C Vitamin C is a morning Product and best when formulated with products with a Low PH 
  • Two products with the same actives 

Skincare ingredients that you should use together: 

  • Niacinamide and Salicylic Acid 
  • Aha and Bha 
  • Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C 
  • Niacinamide and Retinol 
  • Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol 
  • Azelaic Acid and Retinol 

Hyaluronic Acid is a versatile product being that it can be utilized with practically any other skincare ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is really "that girl" of the skincare game. She's almost comparable to Snail Mucin but not as slimy and absorbs quickly. 


Hope this helps and now that you know better, this should be your motivation to do better! Make the necessary changes to avoid the faint yelling of Tyra saying "STOP IT! I have never in my life yelled at a girl like this."
