The skin has three major layers: epidermis (outermost layer), dermis, and hypodermis (deeper tissue layer).
The epidermis is the thinnest and most delicate layer of the skin. This is why we need to be extra careful with what we use or apply on it or it can lead to lots of issues like premature aging, rashes, and even serious skin diseases.
What to do?
Here are 5 things you should stop doing to your skin.
1. Washing your face with soap
Soap dries your skin and deteriorates its protective layer if used regularly, which results in acne. You should also get rid of aggressive cleansers containing SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), choosing gentle foaming creams or cleansing lotions instead.
