Sinful Habits You Should Give Up To Get Flawless Skin
Follow regular and reliable beauty regimens to keep your skin healthy and happy. We all have heard that! But somehow our lifestyle and other habits born out of lethargy, carelessness can deteriorate the quality of our skin. We all are aware of these skin care tips, frequent moisturizing, exfoliation and wearing sunscreen. I mean, we all know common and old skin care rules. In this article, I am going to reveal some skin care sins, which you committ on a daily basis and make your skin terrible.
Let's know about 5 not so known sinful habits which are taking away your glow:
Consuming Dairy And Other Inflammatory Foods:
It is not about how healthy you eat, it is about how skin friendly you eat. Yes, there are certain foods which are healthy for your body, but not good for your skin. No doubt milk is an important source of calcium and other dairy products refuel your body after a heavy workout, but they have adverse effects on the skin. The reasons behind cutting dairy products from the diet are hormones - progesterone and insulin, which lead to an increased level of inflammation and breakouts. Other inflammatory foods are sugar, gluten, MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) and alcohol. Avoid these foods, they can trigger skin problems. Alternate sources of calcium include dark leafy vegetables and tofu.
Using Too Much Cortisone:
Cortisone is one of the ingredients in your first aid kit used to treat bug bites or rashes. Overusing coristone creams or lotions cause collagen to break down, which is the main reason of skin thinning and stretch marks too. Use mildest form of cortisone and apply a thin layer over your face, underarms and groin.
Not Washing And Airing Your Makeup Brushes:
We all use several types of brushes to contour cheeks, forehead and chin. Dirty and unwashed brushes can be the reason for several skin issues. Dust, oil, dead cells and bacteria collect on your brushes. The moment you use them again, all these things transfer to your face and clog your pores causing acne and blackheads. Using contaminated brushes can lead to severe skin infection as well. It is very important to wash brushes once in a week and give them enough time to dry. It is equally important to discard your old cosmetic products as they can cause skin allergies.
Using Recreational Drugs:
The obvious reasons of avoiding recreational drugs are their dangerous health consequences. There are other major outcomes of recreational drugs. Life threatening steroids can cause acne, dull skin, self-inflicted wounds leaving scars and sores behind. Taking supplements without dermatologist recommendation can also be very harmful for your skin. Before consuming any supplement, you have to be sure that your body is ready for it and it won't affect your skin. If you are worried about your skin and looking for best skin care products, then involve natural skin care products in your routine, the ultimate solution for all skin problems.
Drinking Your Water Instead Of Eating It:
We all know how important it is to keep our bodies hydrated. The reason for drinking sufficient water is to retain water in the body, since it goes out through your frequent bathroom breaks and in the form of sweating. There is a secret for retaining water - eat it. You heard it right. By consuming foods that have a high percentage of water, such as: watermelon, zucchini and other fruits, you will retain water for longer time. Body cells are able to absorb water quickly and retain it for more time, especially when it is consumed in the form of fruits and vegetables, since such foods come along with nutrients that the body needs to ingest. As a rule, start eating more fruits and vegetables as compared to drinking water.
In this article, I have discussed skin care sins that you make every day with or without knowing their ill effects. These habits can ruin your unblemished skin, if not stopped now.
