2. You Only Have One Moisture Barrier

Your moisture barrier is made up of your cells, some lipids, and your skin’s natural moisture content and exists to keep bacteria out and hydration in. Resurfacing might be all the rage (the process by which you exfoliate away older skin to reveal fresher baby skin that’s also a tad more vulnerable.)

3. One Zit Does Not Equal Acne

Pimples. Call them what you want, but we all get them, and we all wish we didn’t. But a few spots here and there doesn’t mean go straight for acne treatments. Over-treating can lead to more problems than you had to begin with. Respect your skin type. If you’re not oily, that’s OK! and if you’re not dry, that’s okay too. Just use the products that were developed with your underlying issues in mind.

4. Popping Pimples

We all do it sometimes, but its a bad thing overall for your skin. Try to retain from doing it and it’ll be quicker than you know it when it’s gone.
