Los Angeles, Dec 25 — Taking care of the skin is something that everyone wants to follow religiously and whilst some women maintain it pretty well, others still make mistakes. Expert say avoid skincare mistakes like too much of moisturiser and wrong face mask.

Jill Zander, founder of the Jill Zander Skin Rejuvenation Clinic, lists skin care regime that could go wrong if not properly monitored, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

- Too Much Moisturiser: If a moisturiser is correctly suited to your skin type, it should feel comfortable on the skin and not leave skin feeling greasy or oily. A day moisturiser should always contain an SPF. Night creams should only be used at night as they tend to be richer and don't contain any sun protection. Never put moisturiser around your eyes as the thinner skin can easily become overloaded with product and cause blockages that appear as little white spots.

- Over Exfoliating: Go easy on exfoliation. Over-exfoliating can lead to redness and irritation and constantly stripping your skin can actually make the skin greasy. Physical exfoliating scrubs that have sharp, uneven grains can tear or damage the skin. Normal to oily skin only needs exfoliating twice a week.

- Anti-Ageing creams before your skin is ready: Don't use anti-ageing skincare before your skin shows signs of ageing. If you use potent anti-ageing ingredients before your skin needs them, they will either have no effect or a detrimental one.

- The wrong face mask: As with moisturisers, select your face mask according to your skin type. For instance clay-based masks, or those with ingredients for oily, spotty skin, such as salicylic acid will cause normal-dry skin to flake off. If your skin is in need of moisture, select one for dry skin with skin nourishing and replenishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid or vitamin E.

- Forgetting SPF: Come rain or shine, we should all wear SPF during the day as the sun is the biggest cause of wrinkles. The trick is to find a sunscreen that slips elegantly under foundation and moisturiser and becomes a seamless part of your morning routine. Better still, wear a daily moisturiser or moisturising tint that contains an SPF.

- Using face wipes: Some face wipes contain harsh chemicals and high levels of alcohol that can dry the skin out. When rubbed vigorously on the skin, particularly around the delicate eye area, they can cause irritation and even stinging or redness.

- Sleeping in make-up: Sleeping with dirt, oil and makeup on can cause acne and enlarged pores. Think of make up removal as washing away the day's grime!

- Frequently changing products: A very common mistake is changing products too often. It's really important to try a new product for at least three months to see the true effect it has on the skin. If a product doesn't agree with your skin, stop using it immediately.
