We do our best to learn from those around us, educate ourselves, and treat our skin the best way we know how, but often we make mistakes without even realising it. We simply don’t know we’re doing the wrong thing—and, in some cases, it’s the very opposite of what our skin actually needs. 

When it comes to the massive, complicated, sensitive, varied, and confusing organ that is the skin, nobody has more insight than the experts. Dermatologists who treat patients on a daily basis have seen it all. Picking, over-cleansing, DIY disasters—you name it; they’ve dealt with it. Which is why we asked eight industry pros to tell us the detrimental skin mistakes they see again and again. Their responses were eye-opening and might just surprise you. We urge you to read this, bookmark it, and reference it for the health of your skin. Scroll on for the skin mistakes you might be making.
