Don't Overexfoliate

Scrubs, peels and toners that remove dead skin can help increase cell turnover to keep your face glowing. But exfoliate too often and you can end up temporarily thinning your complexion, Wexler says, which makes you prone to wrinkles. Stick to using gentle scrubs (with soft grains rather than anything gritty) or peels and toners with gentle acids (like lactic acid) no more than three times a week at first.
