1. Costly cleansers
Cleansers are only on your skin for a short time, so they rarely have much “action” beyond removing makeup, oil, and dirt—something any cleanser should do, says Christine Choi Kim, MD, a dermatologist in Santa Monica, California. A more worthwhile investment: a Clarisonic cleansing brush. Unlike other cheaper cleansing devices, which use manually rotating brushheads that can be too abrasive on sensitive skin, Clarisonic employs ultrasonic vibration to gently, yet deeply cleanse skin. The payoff: Besides minimizing breakouts, you’ll get more punch from the products you use afterward.
