In this post, I'm going to be talking about the top five things you should be giving
up if you want radiant and younger looking skin.
#5 Give up on popping your pimples. This is so damaging to your skin and it can lead to permanent scarring and discoloration so please stop doing it. Instead, try using a salicylic acid and maybe be a little patient. (Check out my last 2 posts on AHA's and BHA's that you may find helpful)
#4 Give up on the makeup when you go to the gym it is so bad for your skin. The makeup can mix in with the sweat and then it clogs your pores. Which in turn causes breakouts. I know it's hard sometimes because I know for me, I go to the gym right after work, but what I do is I bring makeup remover towelettes. They are really convenient and they have saved my skin for sure.
#3 Give up on talking on your cell phone without earbuds or wiping it down or you
can even put it on speakerphone. If you're putting the phone against your
skin it's so bad because there's so much bacteria on your phone and so many germs
that it's super gross. Either carry the little towelettes or there's like a spray that you can use which is always helpful. If you're prone to breaking out definitely don't be putting it up against your skin because it's really, really bad for your skin and can cause breakouts.
#2 Give up smoking. I know you've heard this before, probably a million times. But smoking really is so bad for your skin and for your health in general. So, if you haven't stopped yet please do. It's never too late! You shouldn't even be starting in the first place. Many of the chemicals found in tobacco have been shown to damage the collagen and elastin in your skin and collagen and elastin are what gives your skin its strength and elasticity.
#1 Give up the sun. I know, this is skincare 101, but it really is the number one thing that can really damage your skin and make you look years older than you are. I used to be a sun worshiper until about the age of 17. I'm so thankful that I stopped, because I know for sure I would have a lot more wrinkles if I didn't. If you're like me and just feel better with a little color, then use a self-tanner or get a spray tan. I love a good self-tanner.
Ok, so those are my top 5 things you should give up in order to have younger, beautiful and glowing skin. Thank you for stopping by!
