As much as we'd like to deny it, we all have some nasty habits that we follow regularly. While most of these habits are harmless, some of them can end up being bad for you. We're talking precisely about habits that could end up damaging your skin. For example, some people have a habit of popping their zits, others don't wash their beauty tools as often and so on. These habits could end up being really harmful to your skin in the long run which is why it's essential that you stop them immediately. Here are some habits you should watch out for.
Not using the right shaving tools - First of all, it is very important that you don't store your razor in the bathroom because the moisture from the area is bound to make your razor end up with bacteria all over it. Secondly, never use a blunt razor. If you can visibly see that the blade has worn down or that the area surrounding the blade is starting to deteriorate, get rid of that razor. If you continue using it you might end up with a nasty skin infection. Change your razor every few weeks.
Sleeping with makeup on - This one is a big no-no. Your skin and body repair themselves at night when you're sleeping. So, if you sleep with makeup on, you're risking the chance of infecting your skin. The makeup can end up depositing in your pores which could lead to breakouts, zits and also excessive production of oil and sebum. If you want your skin to be squeaky clean, make sure to scrub your face clean before bed every night.
Constantly touching your face - How many times in a day do you subconsciously touch your face? You can't even keep count, can you? Well, your hands also touch a lot of other surfaces which means that they're probably squirming with bacteria. And imagine what happens when you use those same hands to touch your face. The bacteria end up getting transferred to your face and this leads to breakouts, zits and whatnot. So, make sure to consciously avoid touching your face and you'll notice just how much of a difference it can make to your skin.
