Women know that if they want to look beautiful and to be healthy, they need to pay special attention to their skin. Skin care is one of the most important beauty habits all women should have. This includes moisturizing one’s skin, applying hydration creams, exfoliating, having healthy foods and so on.
However, there are also some quite bad things that women tend to do every now and then. They do them because they either do not know that these ones are bad, or because they are too lazy or tired at that time. Today we decided to list for you such kinds of common bag beauty habits and to advise you never to do them again. Check them out!
#1 Biting your lips
Biting one’s lips is a very common habit with both men and women, but, as you can probably guess, it is not a good one for you at all. In the winter people’s lips, as the rest of their skin, gets dry. And people often lick their lips to moisturize them.
This is not a good idea, because in a couple of seconds they get even drier. And when this happens people start biting their lips and peel with their teeth some of the cracked skin on the lips. As a result the skin on the lips gets irritated and starts bleeding.
If you want to take good care of your lips skin, you need to stop biting them as a whole. If they are dry, just apply some lip balm and reapply it whenever you feel your lips are getting dry again. This way you will have plump and rosy lips that would be very attractive and healthy.
#2 Forgetting to clean your makeup brushes
You have probably heard it already, but it is very important to wash your makeup brushes every now and then. If you do not do that and keep using the same unwashed makeup brushes to apply makeup with them, you are very likely to spread some bacteria on your face.
Brushes often gather dust and in combination with the left old makeup on them, it could lead to inflammations. That is why you need to make sure that your facial skin remains healthy, with no zits on, you need to make sure you wash your makeup brushes at least after every other use.
#3 Removing dry mascara from your lashes
The next thing in our list is connected to makeup again. After wearing mascara all day, some women tend to flick it from their lashes since it is dry and easily removed. However, this is not a good thing to do, especially if you want to keep your lashes on.
If you slick dry mascara from your lashes, you accidentally pull out some of the hairs as well. If you do it often, you may end up having very thin and short lashes. Get rid of this bad habit of yours and remove your mascara only with special makeup-removing products.
#4 Using old, expired makeup
The next thing that you should stop doing if you tend to do it is to use makeup that is already expired. It is not accidental that makeup also has expiration date. This is because old makeup can lead to some skin irritations and considering the fact that facial skin is very gentle, old makeup can easily lead to inflammations and zits.
What you can do is stop buying dozens of makeup products at the same time. Just make sure you finish the ones that you have before they are expired and then you can buy some new makeup items. This way you will save yourself a lot of trouble including spending unnecessary money.
#5 Forgetting to remove hairs from your brush
The next thing included in our list is actually very common. A lot of women tend to forget to remove the leftover hairs from their brushes after using them. The bad thing about it is that the next time they start brushing their hair, they still do not remove the hairs from the brush and this way hairs start piling up.
Brushes need to be cleaned regularly not only from the hairs left on them, but also from all the dust they gather. Imagine that all of this dirt then touches your freshly-washed hair. Gross, right?
That is why it is a good idea not only to remove hair from your brush every time you use it, but also to wash your brush with water and soap at least once a week to remove dirt and dust from it and not to spread them on your hair later.
#6 Forgetting to clean or sterilize your earrings
Women love earrings and have plenty of such for numerous occasions but what they forget to do, or do not know that they should do it at all, is cleaning or sterilizing the earrings every now and then. They can also get dirty and if you put them on your ears, it can cause some skin irritations and infections. That is why make sure you clean them every once in a while.
