5. Exfoliating with baking soda and coffee
Baking soda can work as a skin exfoliant and remove dead skin cells and bacteria. But on the other side, your skin can become susceptible to moisture loss and get dry. The loss of the moisture barrier also leads to the growth of foreign bacteria.
6. Applying toothpaste to shrink pimples
It’s better to avoid applying toothpaste to your pimples to make them dry out. Instead, it will likely burn and irritate your skin, especially your face. Besides, it may lead to a rash known as contact dermatitis.
7. Using steam to soothe skin
Over-steaming can leave your skin irritated and dry. Make sure you don’t do this procedure often and regulate the temperature of the steam. Heat can break collagen, causing wrinkles to appear faster.
8. Using body lotion for your face
Lotions are made for your body only. They can dry out and/or irritate the sensitive skin on your face. The skin on the body is thicker and can handle strong fragrances and cheaper ingredients.
