Just thought I’d do a fun and easy tag post for Friday night (taken from Knickers and Nailpolish here!). Bad beauty habits, we all are guilty of them, and here are mine:
-Not drinking enough water. I used to be really good about this during my uni days, I always had a full Nalgene by my side. Then came the articles about Nalgenes leeching cancer causing chemicals into your water and so I threw that out quite quickly and then moved on to the Sigg bottle, but some how that just became too much of a bother to carry around. During the work day, I start my morning off with a coffee and drink green tea through the day. At home I drink more tea or have a beer or glass of wine with dinner depending on how bad my day was. I know I don’t drink enough water because I wake up incredibly thirsty and dehydrated in the morning. So really making a concentrated effort to drink more water because it can really affect your appearance!
-Not using a facial exfoliater, I used to use St. Ives Apricot scrub along with a separate facial cleanser. I probably exfoliated too often as I used it everyday, but now I just use Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit scrub. Although, this claims to be a scrub it doesn’t give my face a thorough exfoliation and I really should be using something a bit harsher once a week to really get my skin glowing.
-Washing dishes and scrubbing the bathroom with bare hands. This is a bad one, but a habit I can’t/won’t break unfortunately. Cleaners and washing up liquid are terrible for your skin and your hands will especially show the effects from using these harsh cleaners. I cannot stand the feel of rubber gloves though and opt to slather my hands in body butter after doing these household chores.
-Not using an eye cream/night cream. I’ve always just used a moisturizer in the morning, once I’d gotten out of the shower. At night, I wipe off my makeup using a makeup removing wipe and leave it at that. But with the inclusion of things like the Bionova Eye Wrinkle treatment in the December Glossybox and the Clarins Night Cream, I have been toying with the idea of purchasing these extra creams. I am 25 now, but I feel like it’s too soon for me to worry about anti-aging products, even though it’s probably about time for me to start worrying about such things. Just a sad realization I am avoiding perhaps…
What are some of your bad beauty habits that you just can’t kick?
