Top 10 Worst Skin Habits
If you don’t have the clear skin that you want, chances are, some bad habits are coming into play. Many of the worst things you do to your skin can be easily corrected, to give you nice healthy skin.
1. Using a Harsh Cleanser
You don’t need to use a harsh cleanser to wash your face, no matter what type of skin you have. Simply washing with a natural, plant-based cleanser is enough. You don’t want to strip your skin of protective oils or irritate it.
2. Exfoliating Roughly
It’s great to use an exfoliator to slough off dead skin, but don’t use anything that contains harmful ingredients or extra large granules. If you do, your face may end up red and damaged.
3. Not Moisturizing
You need to apply a moisturizer after you cleanse, even if you have oily skin. If you don’t, your face will lose moisture and be tight, or it will overcompensate for the dryness by producing excess oil.
4. Incorrectly Moisturizing
Even if you moisturize, you might notice your skin still isn’t what you want. You could be applying too little or too much moisturizer, or you could be using a product with harsh ingredients in it.
5. Not Washing Off Makeup
If you don’t wash your makeup off every night, it’s sitting on your face for hours clogging your pores. Even natural makeup should be washed off before bed.
6. Using Products with Harmful Ingredients
Ingredients in skin care products should be plant based and gentle.
7. Forgetting Sun Screen
You should use a moisturizer or facial serum with a sunscreen in it, or you should apply a separate lightweight sunscreen when you go out for the day.
8. Not Drinking Enough Water
Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water leads to healthy and happy skin.
9. Eating a Poor Diet
Eat a plant-based diet that contains mostly whole foods, including a good amount of fruits and vegetables, to promote healthy skin.
10. Touch Your Skin Minimally
Don’t pick at pimples, rub forcefully when applying skin care products, or touch your face during the day if it’s not necessary.
