Having a good and glowing skin is a blessing, some people have it and some make efforts to achieve it. In order to maintain their looks and beauty people stick to a particular routine for skin care, but what if we get poor or damaged skin instead of bright and glowing skin.
External factors also influence our skin health like having junk food, pollution and bad sleeping habits.
Here are your mistakes that are damaging your skin.
IGNORANCE TOWARDS SUNSCREEN:
Sunscreen is a necessity, not a luxury. People love to sunbathe in winters but forgets to wear sunscreen or use it less often. Many signs of aging are caused by sun damage. So it must be applied every single day and more frequently. It is considered to be the best treatment for aging skin. Using high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is recommended due to more sun damage these days.
NOT DRINKING ENOUGH WATER:
Keeping your skin hydrated is of utmost importance, as you lose moisture in form of sweat, urination or exposure to heat. Dehydrated skin looks wrinkled and sunken. Drinking water keeps a stretch in skin that means it will bounce back and makes skin look younger and fresh. It is suggested to drink 6 to 7 glass of water daily.
NOT INVESTING IN MAKEUP BRUSH CLEANERS:
Makeup brushes must be cleaned as dirt and mold get collected on it. It is causing more of damage to your skin. One can buy brush cleaners or dip your brushes in olive oil and clean them with cotton cloth.
POPPING OUT PIMPLES:
We all know we shouldn’t, but we all do it sometimes. Popping a pimple can makes infections go down in pores and sometimes leaves a scar.
NOT WASHING BED SHEETS AND PILLOW COVERS:
If you are acne prone, it will worsen your problem. You pillow covers have dust mites and other bacteria that clog your pores. Try changing your pillow cover once a week or more often. Try avoiding cotton pillow covers, use silk or satin cloth.
DIET LOADED WITH JUNK:
Taste buds make you eat all junk that shows up on your skin in form of pimple, acne and other skin problems. Doctors recommend eating green salad and veggies.
BREAKING THE MYTH OF NOT MOISTURIZING OILY SKIN:
Regardless of skin type, moisturization is very important. Remember it adds water to skin not oil.
DELAYING SHOWER AFTER WORKOUT:
Delaying shower after workout cause skin problems like skin irritation, rashes and pimples. Sweat gets clogged in pores and sits on your skin. If showering immediately is not an option, try changing your clothes and clean your acne prone areas with wet wipes.
