Touching a partner's face might be a sign of affection, but you don’t know where those hands have been. In the same way that you shouldn't touch your mien without washing your hands, don't allow others to do the same to you. Those germs-infested hands might be the reason why your breakout is worsening.
2. Sleeping without washing off hairstyling products
Always wash your hair before hitting the sack if you've applied hairstyling products during the day, especially if you let your hair down at night. The products can rub on your skin, clogging the pores and causing breakouts. Think of it as sleeping with your makeup on, which is a definite no-no.
3. Not changing your pillow sheet often
You might not be physically active when you're sleeping, but your body still produces sweat, especially in Singapore's humid climate. So, just imagine how much sweat, dirt and grime you’re sleeping on if you don't wash your pillowcase often.
4. Not washing your makeup brushes or sponges
Do you know how much bacteria is accumulated on your brush after every use? A lot. Now imagine that amount multiplying because you don't wash the brush and instead, use it repeatedly. Now, that might explain why you've been getting those bumps on your cheeks.
5. Not getting rid of your constipation problem
If you're getting pimples on your chin or jaw line, chances are that you have a problem with your bowel movements. You need to solve the problem pronto because that's basically your body giving you warning signs. You can treat the blemishes with a pimple gel, but to prevent future breakouts, you need to nip the problem in the bud by improving your bowel conditions.
