Most of our everyday actions are subconscious – and this includes bad habits. Read on to discover a few bad habits taking a toll on your beauty.
Don’t bite your nails! Your nails are a part of your outfit. Do you know how much dirt and bacteria your nails collect during the day, regardless of the times or how thoroughly you wash your hands? The bacteria when biting your nails can potentially give you an infection. Gross! If you bite your nails out of stress, try other strategies, like popping some bubble wraps or chewing some gum.
Your face has a pimple and you hate it! We know you are dying to do it, but you really shouldn’t pick at your pimples or scars. Most people think the easiest and fastest way to get rid of pimples is by popping them. It may be fast, but in fact it is easier for it to get infected and leave a mark on your skin. Having so many options – on the market and homemade – why wouldn’t you try to fix it the right way? Follow the treatments, and then simply apply concealer or foundation to hide!
Did you know that scratching your head is actually bad? Excessive scratching could indicate dandruff, dry scalp, a dirty mane or even lice. But sometimes you do it for the heck of it. Well, according to some studies, it turns out that when scratching your head, you are damaging your roots, and yes, it shakes all the dandruff flakes on your clothes, if you happen to have dandruff. Not a pretty sight. If you keep your hair clean and it still feels itchy, then opt for a new anti-dandruff shampoo, and if you feel like scratching, then use your fingertips instead of your nails. Gently tap your fingers or rub them on your head.
To conclude, something we will never get tired of repeating. A bad habit for most women is not washing their faces. This is essential to keep your face fresh and clean. Your skin absorbs all the dirt, fumes, and just about anything there is in the air throughout the day. Plus, we are constantly putting on makeup. So if that pretty face is not “purified” at night, the next day you will just apply more makeup and lotion to a dirty face, and building this layered cake. Doesn’t sound nice, does it?
