6 Things You Do That Are Ruining Your Natural Face Game

November 15, 2021

If you want to blind your enemies with your natural face glow every time you step out, then you need to stop doing these 6 things because they’re high-key ruining your face game.

1. You sleep like a witch.

If you want a beautiful and natural face but have the sleeping pattern of a witch who has to be at coven meetings from 10 pm to 5 pm, you’re deceiving yourself, mama. While sleeping, your body produces helpful skin cells and collagen. Simply put, getting enough sleep (a minimum of 7 hours) is necessary for activating your face glow. Get into it. 

2. You don’t apply sunscreen.

Contrary to what you may think, sunscreen isn’t only for white people. Yes, black people have melanin and it makes us less susceptible to sunburns than white people. But make no mistake, constant exposure to the sun’s rays can fry your face. Protect your face from long-term damage by covering it with sunscreen

3. You use body lotion on your face.

Even if we use a loudspeaker to say this, it still won’t be loud enough. Even if you have oily skin. Moisturize your damn face so you’re not out here walking around with a dry face looking like a zombie.

4. You are always touching your face.

Do you realize how much dirt your hands pick up every day? The filthy things you hold and the grimy surfaces you touch? Then you take those same hands and rub them across your face at random times. Stop touching your face. This is why your face keeps breaking out. 

5. You sleep with make-up on.

If you sleep with make-up on, you are the cause of your face problems, not your village people. Use a gentle, alcohol-free cleanser to take off your make-up before bed. Remember when we said that your body produces helpful skin cells and collagen while you sleep? Your pores need to breathe for this to happen and clogging them with makeup makes it harder. 

6. You use too many unsuitable products on your face.

Knowing your skin type solves a lot of trial and error when it comes to face care. To avoid stories that touch, focus on products specifically formulated for your skin type and the common issues it’s prone to.


Listen, you can’t be out in these streets without a face care routine. That’s how your face card starts declining, and as a happening babe, you can’t have that. You also need good quality face care products because using poor quality face care products is even worse than not having a routine.

We suggest you get NIVEA‘s range of face care products. You need a good cleanser, toner, moisturizer, sunscreen, exfoliator, and serum. And NIVEA‘s products will get your face on the happening babe level it needs to be.
