1)Sleep.

Get enough sleep; it is not called beauty sleep for nothing. Try to sleep at least 7-8 hours daily as stress causes several skin problems

3)Wash off Makeup.

Wash off make up every night before you go to bed. When make up is left over night, it clogs pores and leads to break outs on the face.

4)Avoid Touching.

Avoid touching your face so as not to transfer bacteria from the hands to the face and if you must, then wash your hands before touching your face.

5)Wash Hands.

Before you wash your face at any time, wash your hands first.

9)Sponge.

Change your sponge at least once every 2 months. If left for too long, your sponge can begin to accumulate bacteria which is unhealthy for your skin.

10)Pimples.

Do not pop your pimple, no matter how bad the urge is. This is to prevent it from scarring and leaving dark marks on the face.

11)Pillowcase.

Wash your pillow case at least once a week because it touches your face a lot and harbour bacteria and dirt which are not good for the skin.

12)Phone.

Clean your phone once a week with a sanitizer. We drop our phones in several unhygienic places and still bring it to our face when receiving calls, this can cause a lot of problems for the skin.

13)Towels.

Use separate towels for body and face because the face is more sensitive and using the same towel for body and face can spread bacteria to the face causing acne and other skin problems.

14)Face Towels.

Wash your face towels every 2 days especially if you have acne. You may need to have more than one face towel to make this possible.
