Secret Skin Sabotagers

Most of us know we need to cleanse our faces on a daily basis, stay away from picking at zits, and always remove our makeup at night before bed to have great skin. Did you know that there are other things you may or may not be doing which can cause breakouts and oily skin as well? Some of the things you do on a daily basis, which you may think are harmless, might actually be breaking you out – and can even cause terrible skin infections, such as staph. Lionesse would like to take a look at some of things you may be doing every day without knowing you are causing these problems for yourself.

Cell Phone Use = Bacteria
Every time you use your cell phone, and take a look at it, do you see the cosmetic buildup and oils left behind? These products and germs can infest your pores, causing bacterial buildup and forming painful pimples, blackheads, and even infections. Avoid this by wiping your phone down with a sanitizing wipe at the end of every day.

Woman lying down on her bed.

Germ Filled Pillowcases
You know that pillowcase you’ve been using that hasn’t been washed in two weeks? You will want to throw that into the washer as soon as you read this. You need to change your pillowcases and sheets every two-three days, says some experts – and if you aren’t, you are exposing your skin to absorbing excess oil which has sunk into your pillowcases and sheets, as well as bacteria and dust. This is the best way to avoid pesky breakouts. When your skin comes in contact with the material for 6-8 hours a night, there’s no telling what you might absorb into your face.

Woman taking a shower.

Get Your Shower Temp in Check
Taking a super-hot shower might sound like a great idea after a long, hard day at work, but did you know that hot showers are known to dehydrate the skin? Rather than opting for hot, which we know you love, learn to love the setting on lukewarm, which will protect your skin and keep it soft and hydrated. Be sure to remember to moisturize directly after your shower.

Woman having an alcoholic drink in a restaurant

Alcohol Consumption Causes Dehydration
Having a drink once or twice a week is generally okay, but did you know that drinking excess amounts of alcohol can dehydrate your skin, making you appear dry, cracked, and itchy? You can avoid this by having one glass of wine a couple times a week, rather than a daily glass or more than one at a time. The same goes with hard liquor and beer as well. One drink won’t dehydrate your skin and body, but anything more than that certainly will.

Woman exfoliating her legs

Over Exfoliation
Exfoliation is key to renewing your skin to a fresh, radiant state – but overdoing it is never good for anyone. This can cause skin irritation, dryness, itching, and redness. Opt for exfoliating once per week on your face, and up to twice per week for body. Be sure to use a facial peel, facial polish, or mask for facial exfoliation, rather than going for something abrasive or harsh.

    I learned a lot. I didn’t know you should clean your pillow case every 2 days. Also often you clean your sheets. I have been cleaning once a week. I already exfoliate. Also know you shouldn’t take hot showers. I take warm showers. Luke warm is too cold for me.

Definitely trying to hold my phone away from my ear now and keeping the volume up higher, and cleaning my phone on the regular now!

    I’m going to start cleaning my cell phone more regularly because I definitely see the smudges from my moisturizer after I use it. I change my sheets once a week though. Though it would be better for my skin and a treat to have always clean sheets, I don’t think I’ll change that. We are having a bad drought and that would be selfish!

    I read the article and I find that the more I use cleansers and toners on my face the more I get blemishes. Some times these are big ingrown ones. What else could I wash my face with?

    • admin
      admin August 11, 2015 at 9:40 pm

      Hi Joanna,

      Great question. It could be that the cleanser or toner (or even both) you are using isn’t right for your skin type. The first step would be to determine what your skin type is and then to find a cleanser with the best ingredients to care for it. Keep in mind that a healthy lifestyle also has a huge impact on your skin.

      Hope this info helps!

    Great article. I do clean my phone a couple times a day bc it looks gross never thought of the bacteria. I do bedding once a week or more if it’s hot. I have poor face cleaning habits. I don’t use much on it but plain water most of the time. Now that I am closer to 50 I really realize I need to take better care of it if I want to keep it smooth and avoid wrinkles a little while longer

    Never knew that about hot showers! I did know you should do your final rinse of conditioner with cooler water though!

    Guess I should be changing my pillow cases more often. I only change them out once a month!

    I make it a point to change my bed sheets and pillow cases often, used to be once a week now more often especially pillowcases! Your bed sheets are swarming with dead skin cells

    I recently started taking colder showers (before LA became super humid! lol) and I’ve actually noticed that my skin is a lot more healthier and refreshed. I pretty much did everything else on this list prior to the colder showers, and I think that was just the icing on the cake!

    Great advice, I never thought about all the makeup, and oil, etc that is building up on my phone, eww, i actually stopped reading and wiped my phone down before finishing this article lol. I’m definitely going to pay more attention to all the little hidden dangers to my skin.

    Thank you for the information. Some of them I knew and some I did not. I suffer from acne and have since I was a teenager. I thought for sure it would be gone by the time I hit my 30’s.
