Guilty pleasure

No one is perfect...right? We all do some mistakes in life, generally, but also in skincare too. Some “mistakes” we do on purpose. Does any of you has some habit that is a “no”, but does it no matter what skincare gurus say. Mine is using soap when I have breakouts 😬😬 I know it's a big no for most people, but for my oily skin drying out sometimes helps a lot, and pimples disappear immediately after using soap. What's your secret if you have it 🤫 🧼

Not having a good "diet". I know hormones and food can play a lot in you skin and so. But yeah I dont really care. Last night I was eating chocolate at 12pm 😅

Well I train a lot so I eat whatever I want but it has no impact on my skin. My skin was perfect before covid and wearing a mask for 8+ hours destroyed it.

i exfoliate daily. i’m aware that’s a big no no in the community but it’s what my skin needs. i’ve tried following advice about not doing that and reducing my frequency and my skin reacted badly to that. so i exfoliate daily but it’s not a guilty pleasure bc i feel no guilt over it. not to get all preachy but i’ve learnt over the years that you should listen to your skin. above all else. skincare gurus, enthusiasts, and even professionals can advice you what you should and should not do, but at the end of the day, it is YOUR skin, you know it best. if using soap when you’re breaking out helps, then keep it up. if your skin doesn’t get angry at you for doing something “unadvisable” and you actually see results from it, then go forth and keep going. screw what everyone says.
