Sometimes we get the urge, but let’s teach our hands to stay away from our face!
Avoiding touching our face might seem quite a basic habit to acquire, but it is certainly one of the hardest. When it comes to the appearance of our complexion this is a crucial point. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), making sure not to touch your face during the day is crucial for those looking to control oily skin. When you touch your face, you are likely to be spreading dirt, oil and bacteria from your hands to your face, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Make sure you only touch your face when conducting your skincare routine and applying makeup and sunscreen, when your hands are clean, of course!
When it comes to pimple popping, that is also a no-go. The ADD states that pimple-popping at home can result in permanent acne scars, it can also cause even more acne, making it more painful, and overall putting you at high risk of infection. No one wants that!
Our team at MYOKŌ has some tips for you to help you stop touching your face throughout the day. First of all, MOISTURIZE your face, as it is one of the main reasons people touch their face due to dryness and itchiness. Second tip, PIN YOUR HAIR BACK, because those loose locks are always one of the reasons why we touch our face. We recommend silk scrunchies, not only are they super trendy, but also, they are super gentle to our hair. Our final tip is that if you have to touch your face, wipe your nose, mouth or eyes, USE TISSUES, they will help keep dirt and bacteria away from your face.
