11 BAD SKIN HABITS TO BREAK

Looking great, feeling confident and having healthy, YEOUTHful skin is a daily goal.  However, there are things we do everyday that prevent us from achieving that.  Find out if your daily habits are ruining your skin, and what skin saving habits you should be incorporating before it’s too late! 


Signs of skin aging are public enemy number one when it comes to our health and beauty plans.  Sometimes, whether we’re aware or not, our habits affect our skin in a really big way.  

Read below to learn what habits can wreak havoc on your skin! 


THE TOP BAD SKIN HABITS TO BREAK

1. Touching the face

Whether it's pimples, stress, bites, dirt or whatever is causing you to touch your face, try to be extra mindful not to touch it, especially if you have not recently washed your hands!  Transferring bacteria to your face will result in far worse problems like breakouts and infections.  So moral of the story: hands off your face!

2.Using harsh skincare products 

Applying harsh and harmful skincare products regularly and daily to an otherwise healthy skin is considered a bad habit! Learn to recognize the simple signs that say you’re using harmful products on your skin - irritation, dryness, tingling, itching and breakouts are among some of the signals. If your skin hasn’t adjusted to a skincare product for more than a week, ditch it!  

Look for ingredients that are safe to use even for sensitive skin. Avoid alcohol-based products and if you have serious skin conditions, it’s best to consult a dermatologist.

3. Over exfoliating 

New and healthier skin cells appear after exfoliating.  Exfoliating aggressively and too often can end up doing more harm than good! Over exfoliation damages the skin’s protective barriers and can destroy healthy skin cells.  The skin also becomes dry, dehydrated, irritated and it may become inflamed which can lead to more serious skin problems. 

Use skincare products that provide a gentle exfoliation with products like retinol serums. Mud masks as well as glycolic and salicylic acid peels can also do wonders if used properly!

4. Not removing makeup 

Makeups contain ingredients that can harm the skin if it is worn too long.  It can lead to breakouts, irritations and even skin infections! Makeup won’t make you look great and feel confident if it causes you skin problems! Properly remove it before bed every single night to avoid signs of premature skin aging and other skin problems!

5. Not wearing sunscreen 

We all know by now that sunscreen is the holy grail to defending our skin against harmful UV rays! Generously apply sunscreen to your face, neck and shoulders, arms, the back of your hands and anywhere else that is exposed to the sun often. Wear sunscreen even on cloudy days because UV rays penetrate the skin even when the sun is not out and about!

6. Unhealthy diet

The skin should be nourished from within and without.  A good diet will not only make you live your life fully, but it will make your skin look great! Include skin-loving nutrients and foods in your diet everyday! 

Food supplements and vitamins are effective and safe sources of the nutrients that your body and skin needs too! Our Regenotin Advanced Collagen Generator is a vegetarian capsules that boosts collagen, elastin and keratins.  It strengthens your joints and gives you healthy hair, skin and nails!

7. Not cleaning your makeup kits and skincare tools

Bacteria build up is one skincare problem we should always prevent, not only on our skin but with our tools too!  Regularly clean or replace your face rollers, cream brushes, and makeup sponges to avoid spreading bacteria on your face. Be very careful with your face gadgets and tools especially if you have breakouts or open wounds! 

Think twice about letting others use your skin and make up tools as well.

8. Neglecting your neck and shoulders area

The skin in the neck is as sensitive as the skin around the eyes.  Be sure to give it extra special care.  Plus, skin in the neck, shoulders and chest area is exposed to the sun too!  Start giving your decolletage area the same TLC you give your face. Cleanse and spoil them with creams, serums and moisturizers because they also need nutrients and hydration as much as the other sensitive parts of our skin!

9. Smoking 

It’s a no-brainer that smoking is one of the baddest habits you need to break.  It cuts years off of your life, contributes to many health problems, and it makes you age way beyond your years! Smoking results in skin diseases and premature skin aging.  Deep wrinkles, fine lines, and dry and dehydrated skin are just some of the skin problems you will encounter if you’re a smoker.  

The bottom line: Stop smoking if you want to live longer and if you want to look great everyday for the rest of your life!

10.  Not sleeping well

Not only is sufficient sleep good for our health, body and mind, but for our skin as well.  When we sleep, our skin cells go into repair mode.  They heal damage caused by external aggressors such as harmful UV rays and pollution.  

Our blood circulation also increases while we sleep, and this helps with collagen production and cell renewal!  That is why getting enough sleep is truly one of the best-kept beauty secrets!

11. Not washing your face before going to bed

Washing your face before bedtime, whether or not you have a nighttime skin regimen, is an absolute must!  Its purpose is to wash off all the dirt, grime, make up, excess oils and bacteria that has accumulated on the skin during the day.  Failing to do so, can result in clogged pores that cause breakouts and other irritations.
