    An Australian beauty expert has revealed common skincare mistakes thousands are making without even realising

    Mistake one: Applying oil before moisturiser 

    One common mistake people make is applying oil before moisturiser, as the beauty expert said oil and water do not mix.

    She said the oil blocks anything water-based from absorbing into the skin, and so it just sits on top of the oil.   

    ‘Water can’t get through the oil so it just sits on top. Won’t hurt you but works better the other way,’ she said online.  

    Instead first apply a serum, then a creamy moisturiser and apply any oil product last.

    Mistake two: Avoid using retinol 

    Retinol is a fantastic product that is known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and can also assist with acne, pigmentation and sun damage, although it’s important to use it correctly.

    ‘Retinol thickens skin [and] is amazing for skin rehab, just do it,’ the beauty expert advised.

    Melbourne dermatologist Dr. Alice Rudd agreed and told Mecca: ‘Retinol can strengthen your skin and regenerate collagen, as well as assist with breakouts.’

    Retinols, such as vitamin A serum, are best used after double cleansing the skin and before applying heavy creams.

    This particular product should also only be incorporated into a night-time routine, as the sun deactivates retinol.

    Mistake three: Washing your face with hot water

    While many may enjoy washing their face with hot or warm water, the beauty expert said this can dry out the skin fast and so it’s best to only use cool water. 

    According to HealthSite, hot water drains the skin of its natural oils that are needed to keep it moist and looking fresh.

    But this mistake can be reversed by simply moisturising the skin straight after washing your face.

    Mistake four: Letting a face mask dry on the skin

    While face masks are a popular product that thousands incorporate into their skincare routines, using them incorrectly can be detrimental to the skin.

    The woman said it’s best to apply face masks in the shower or bath to allow the product to remain wet and moist.

    Alternatively a mist spray can be used to keep the masks from drying.

    ‘The clay pulls water out of the skin, causing dehydration! I know! Shocking!’ she said.

    ‘This is why in an old school facial they’ll use a facial steamer over the clay mask so it doesn’t dry completely – that way we’re drawing impurities out of the skin, but not all the water,’ the woman said in another video.

    WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER LET A FACE MASK DRY OUT 

    * If face masks are left to dry for too long this can dehydrate the skin.

    Certified dermatologist Dr David Lortscher agreed and told Insider that dried face masks can lead to dryer skin, tightness, itchiness and redness.

    Mistake five: Over squeezing pimples

    In order to avoid scarring, it’s important to stop over squeezing pimples and instead compress a warm cloth over the top and ‘gently wriggle it’.

    A gentle exfoliation can also be done in the shower or bath to rid the skin of blackheads and whiteheads.

    The insightful TikTok video has since gone viral and has been seen more than 428,000 times, with many left in shock.

    ‘Omg I love you! Finally an Aussie skincare guru,’ one woman said.

    ‘I do all of these!!’ another said, and a third added: ‘I need to change my skincare routine!’
