There are several goals people want to achieve in various aspects of their life. And one of them is good skin. No one loves that dry skin with wrinkles that makes you look like you are in the eighties while you are still young. Even the old grandpas want to look as young and beautiful as possible. And since you are reading this blog, it doesn’t take magic to know that you are one of these people.
Back to our discussion. Have you started your journey to healthy, smooth, and pure skin, tried different methods you have learned and invested your money and time, but the result you’re getting is not encouraging? It’s very understandable and frustrating. Most of us fail to realise that sometimes, it’s not the things we are not doing that prevent us from getting the desired result. Instead, it’s those negative habits that we are yet to stop. There are some daily habits that damage your skin. While these habits are on, the realisation of good skin will continue to be a myth, regardless of how much we try. In today’s blog, we want to show six habits you may not know are the cause of your poor skin.
You might find the habit costing you peace with your skin. So, stick around and enjoy till the end.
Here are the common habits that could damage your skin:
Have you heard of the word “nicotine” before? If your answer is NO! Maybe that’s why you are still smoking. Anyone who prioritises the health of their skin will know that smoking is a no-go area for them. Smoking does not only affect your heart and lungs, as you have always heard. The nicotine in it disrupts blood flow through your skin, and the chemicals in tobacco destroy the elastin proteins. These damages mean wrinkled and rough skin for you. Want that to stop? Try your best to quit smoking. It’s always possible.
Water is the basis of life. That simple statement is very powerful for your skin since water is the medium for which nutrients and oxygen are transported to your body parts. We all know what it means when you don’t drink as much as your body needs. Of course, the lack of hydration will show up on your skin. This will affect your result regardless of the treatment you are giving your skin. So, the next time you care for your skin, remember that a glass of water is the right place to start.
Sleep is a gift to humans. It’s the time when we rest, and our body undergoes a complete rejuvenation to continue work the next day. Our skin is not left out of the equation. It’s equally replenished while we sleep. A denial of the body of that sleep will take a toll on our skin. We think it’s a good way for our body to keep us alert. Do you struggle with having good skin? Think about your sleep pattern. Do you have enough? No? Start fixing it. Your skin will thank you for it.
This is undoubtedly not the first time you hear that “you are what you eat.” How about we tell you that “your skin is what you eat?” That’s the reality. We are all humans, but our allergies and sensitivity are not the same. The best food for the skin for Mr A might be the worst for Mr B. You must observe to understand the supportive foods for your skin and the ones that make your skin remind you of the oldest man in the world. This will help you a lot. It takes observation to know this. However, some diets are generally suitable for your skin, like fruits and vegetables, and ones that speed up your ageing process, like sugary foods. What’s the take? On a general note, reduce your consumption of junk.
Touching Your Face
This is probably the most common lousy skincare habit people do. Did you just do that? If we caught you red-handed, type “you caught me” in the comment section below. The human hand harbours millions of bacteria and germs. The scientific fact behind it is straightforward; we use our hands for many things daily. Even right now, you are using it to operate the phone or laptop from which you watch this video. Does it make sense to transfer all these germs to our faces? Absolutely not, especially with the high sensitivity of the face skin. Here is the message; Respected skincare enthusiast who wants better skin, keep your hands away from your face as much as possible and enjoy the liberation of better skin.
Staying In Bad Moods For Long
We might not be correct, but you must probably have an eyebrow of surprise when you hear your mood can affect your skin. How on earth could that be possible? Well, that’s how it’s, and we are not the only ones that said that. Several scientific research relates the outer world to the inner world. For example, your mood affects the chemicals and reactions within your system, which shows in the most widespread organ in your body.
It’s our pleasure that you learn something that might help you improve your health today. If there are any of these habits that rings an alarm in “this is you” in your head. It’s time you halt them and replace them with better skincare habits like eating good foods, drinking enough water, watching your mood, and always staying happy. It can be all you need to start seeing the desired changes.
