20 Hygiene Mistakes People Make Every Day

Exfoliating excessively

Exfoliating scrubs and bath accessories are great to remove dead skin cells and keep your skin smooth and supple, but over-exfoliating actually causes more harm than good. Exfoliating daily can strip your skin of its natural oils, which in turn leads to irritation and more breakouts. Furthermore, it can actually create tiny tears in the skin which leads to redness. Try to only exfoliate 2-3 times a week instead of daily, and if you do face any of the above issues give a softer exfoliator a try.
