Drinking lots of water, exercising, and eating well: these are the good habits that have been drilled into everyone’s head since time immemorial. And it’s true: these good habits can often lead to a pretty healthy complexion. But most people have to deal with bad habits that damage skin too.
Some bad habits have a pretty obvious effect on your appearance. For instance, over-plucking your brows, biting your nails, or picking your split ends can lead to some less-than-stellar selfies. But some daily habits that age your skin are more difficult to pinpoint. If dark circles, wrinkles, age spots, or red blotches keep bugging you, one of your habits may be to blame. Don’t worry: coffee is not one of these habits. I advocate coffee at all times.
Indeed, there are some surprising findings that suggest what you do in the shower and the bedroom may also age your skin. So does this mean you have to seal yourself in an airlock chamber to keep your skin looking young? Nah. Fortunately, most of these routines are well worth breaking, and you may improve your overall health as well as your complexion. So ditch these nasty habits today to help your skin stay fresh and youthful for many years to come.
