Touching your face often
I’m gonna put this on first because sometimes even I’m guilty of touching my face often. Texting on phone and then unconsciously touching your face will transfer lot of bacteria to your face. It will lead to bad breakouts and even an infection so resist touching your face.
Using harsh face washes and cleansers
How many of you are gonna admit that you like the squeaky clean feeling left by your face wash? I do but not too late to realise that harsh face washes actually strip oils from face which will leave a dull and parched skin. Using them on daily basis will mess up the pH level of skin giving invitations to various skin issues like redness, dryness, fine lines and even eczema. The safe bet is to use a mild face wash that cleans face well without making the skin dry.
Not wearing a sunscreen
There’s a battle going in the beauty world about wearing a sunscreen is necessary or not. But I think it’s important to use it since it prevents sun burns, pigmentation and even permanent tan. If you’re using a topical skin cream it becomes even more vital to wear a sunblock. I’ve heard it’s a myth that dusky skin tones don’t get tanned. Fact is that they do and it’s just not much noticeable. You see the main point here is to protect skin from harmful UV rays. Just make sure your sunblock is above SPF 30.
Washing face directly without removing makeup
It would be a disaster for me to do that. No matter how much or less makeup you’ve had, you need to remove it with a makeup remover first. I You can also use natural oils to do the job. Directly washing face will make your eyeliner or lipstick’s residue stick on face for weeks and lead to breakouts and brown spots.

Scrubbing face almost daily
Exfoliating feels great and sloughs away dead skin but going overboard with it will harm skin in long run. Ladies with oily skin do it often as to get rid of sebum but you should exfoliate your skin not more than twice or thrice a week. If done more than that it will make skin dry, scaly and irritated. Remember not to use a scrub with harsh granules.
Not paying attention to hands
When you’re having a coffee or talking with someone your hands are most likely to get noticed. Did you know your hands can tell your age? Dry and lifeless hands give an impression that you’re older than you really are. Start moisturizing your hands and see what difference it makes. Moisturize them everytime you wash hands. It will instantly make them soft and warm.

Sleeping on your side
Lot of us feel comfortable sleeping on side but does no benefit to your body and instead strains neck and other organs. From the beauty perspective sleeping on side will squish your face against the pillow and cause wrinkles and fine lines to appear even before ageing. It’s best to have your beauty sleep by sleeping on your back.
Using beauty products with unclean fingers
There are products, specially which comes in tub require you to dip your fingers to scoop it out but it’s very unhygienic. Make sure your fingers are clean before dip your hands since it can give breeding ground to bacterias. You can also use a clean small spoon to take out the product and shut the jar tightly.
These were some bad beauty habits that can do bad to your skin for long term so it’s better to avoid them and start caring for your skin.
