If you’ve been following a fool proof skincare regimen for a while now and still notice breakouts on your face, it’s not something you’re doing. It may be, but you don’t know about it. There are several external factors that can influence breakouts, and most people are not even aware of them. Keep scrolling to find out what they are.
1. The tons of face products you’ve been trying out: Free samples might seem like the best thing ever, but they can cause your skin some serious harm. Don’t pile on every new product you get. They can cause skin irritation and worsen the state of your skin.
2. Your phone and sun glasses: These items hold so much dirt and bacteria, if you could actually see them, you will be disgusted. This is because you use them daily after touching everything even before washing your hands. Wipe down your phone and other accessories with antibacterial wipes as often as you can.
3. Your hair: Yes, your hair can give you breakouts especially if you let it fall in your face. Your hair is loaded with oils that can clog your pores. These oils also attract dirt and bacteria easily and trap them in your skin. Make sure your hair is always clean and keep it away from your face when you sleep.
Also, remember to change your pillow case at least once a week. During the week, flip it over to a fresh side. This way, you’re trying to avoid transferring oils and dirt from your hair to your face.
