I only wash my face once a day and wouldn't change it for a thing! Then again...I don't wear a full face of foundation.

I have sometimes gone to bed without taking my make-up off!!! I know I regret it in the days to come when my skin decides to become congested or I get a dreaded pimple or 3!!

I have committed all of these sins at one time or another - very naughty!

I would have to say that even to this day I sometimes pick them, at least they are a rarity these days!!

I was once a fan of pimple squeezing,but i no longer squeeze them no matter how embarrassingly big they are

I am an esthetician and I don't agree with the "thou shalt not pick your pimples". As a former acne victim it is impossible to walk around with a screaming whitehead on your face. It should be better said, "thou shalt pick your pimples correctly" in that the skin should be clean, do not use your fingernails, and do not over extract. Always use anti bacterial products before and after "picking" as well.

I'm really bad when it comes to popping pimples, I just can't help it. This cleanser looks quite good though and I look forward to using it. Thank you for the article.

Sadly, I've committed all of these skin sins!! BUT, since last year I have made a massive turn-around and I'm skin obsessed! I have a wonderful skin regime that it so easy to follow and I'm NEVER lazy with my skin! I cleanse morning and night (even after a big night out!) and have a myriad of other facial products that I use. It's so worth it! My skin has never looked better!

I've been so bad this week with taking off my make up. I've been so exhausted and just plain lazy :( And my skin is suffering from it

I always used to - somewhat unintentionally - strip my skin, but now I know better!

I've only ever slept with my makeup on once and I was too ill to do anything about it.

When I was younger I definitely picked at pimples and tried to strip my skin of all oil.
I am happy to say that I don't commit the other two. I would never not wash my face morning and night, it just feels so dirty

I have been lucky, only getting the odd pimple or two. And they don't last long before I pop em. I don't think anything could change my way

I have committed all of these sins at some point, however, picking my pimples is what I really have to get under control. I'm shocking for it.

I've probably piled on too much concealer years ago, before I learned about green concealer.
