10 Lazy Habits That Actually Make A Difference March 10 2016, 0 Comments

We all get lazy. And because of that, our skin suffers. If you are guilty of NOT doing one of these, it’s time to make a change. Remember that all 10 of these daily habits take 5-10 minutes a day.

Washing your face in the morning and at night.

This is the most basic rule.

Taking your makeup off

We’re all guilty of this. Sometime we sleep with our makeup on. And as a result, our skin gets clogged with dirt and left over makeup gibberish. Simply taking a makeup remover wipe and wiping the makeup off your face before you sleep helps your skin breathe well at night.

Drinking water

Sometime we forget to drink enough water a day because we’ve drank coffee in the morning, soda for lunch, and juice for night. Try to replace soda and juice once in a while with an 8 oz water. Your skin will be hydrated and flush out toxins.

Avoiding greasy foods and chocolate

If you know that your skin reacts the moment you eat these, then avoid them. It’s hard to change your diet but eating these foods will result in your skin breaking out.

Changing your pillow and blanket sheets

If you wash your hair every other day, oil and pollutants build up and transfer to your pillow. Your face touches your pillow at night. Change your sheets every 5-7 days so that your face won’t accumulate with dirt and oil at night.

Facial mask

Applying a mask takes 5 minutes, sometimes 1 minute if you’re using a sheet mask. Wearing a face mask at night will help bring vitamins and soothe your skin.

Getting a facial

Sometimes the pores on our face just can’t be taken out no matter how often you wash and exfoliate. If you see the blackheads and whiteheads building up, schedule an appointment to have your face cleaned by an aesthetician. They will extract your blackheads and a facial will help shrink your pores.

Sleeping early

Your facial cells need a good amount of time to rejuvenate. Sleeping early will help do that and reduce stress which can trigger break outs.

Letting your skin breathe

Once or twice a week, give your face a day without makeup. Letting your skin breathe allows your pores to unclog. Spend a day wearing a mask, putting a serum, and allowing your face to just be bare.

Sticking to an acne regimen

After 2 weeks of doing an acne regimen, it gets lazy and we tend to skip a day or so. Remember that your skin gets used to a routine. The moment that you stop a regimen, your skin will react and you’ll be back to square one. Give 15 minutes at night to wash, exfoliate, tone, and apply a night cream.
