5 BEAUTY HABITS TO SAVE YOUR SKIN

5 BEAUTY HABITS TO SAVE YOUR SKIN

Did you know that some seemingly-innocent lifestyle habits actually do more to harm skin than help it?  Plus, they can even prematurely age your skin. Here are five beauty habits to incorporate into your routine to maintain youthful, healthy skin.

1. CHANGE YOUR PILLOWCASE REGULARLY

An unwashed pillowcase is a breeding ground for sweat, makeup particles, hair products, oil, and bacteria. All of those irritants are making contact with your skin when you sleep. As a result, your skin gets clogged and becomes inflamed, leading to acne and aged-looking skin. 

To prevent this, launder your pillowcases anywhere from every three days to once a week. Flip the pillow onto the “new” side nightly. Purchase new pillows every six months. Also, wash your face with an all-natural, organic and non-toxic cleanser every night to minimize the dirt and oils that are transferred to your pillowcase.

2. USE FRESH, GENTLE WASHCLOTHS WHEN CLEANSING OR DRYING

Do you use a washcloth with your facial cleanser? If you’re not using the right kind, you could be causing irritation to your skin. Choose a baby washcloth, which is softer. Always select a fresh washcloth each time because an old, damp washcloth attracts bacterial growth.

Gently scrub your face, using circular motions to clean. When you dry, simply pat your skin with a clean washcloth or let it air-dry.

3. PREVENT HAIR PRODUCTS FROM GETTING ON YOUR FACE

Many hair products are loaded with toxic ingredients that are harmful to facial skin. Limit contact with these products by tilting your head back when washing and conditioning. You should also wash your face last while in the shower to cleanse away any harmful residue from hair products.

4. TAKE SHORTER, LOWER-TEMPERATURE SHOWERS

There’s nothing more relaxing after a long day’s work than a steamy shower. However, making the water too hot and extending your shower for too long can dry out your skin by stripping the epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, of its essential oils. If you want the effect of a steamy shower without the skin damage, turn the heat up before you step in. Then, lower the temperature once you start showering.

5. REMOVE MAKEUP BEFORE SLEEPING

As you sleep, the body recovers and heals-- your skin included. Removing your makeup before bed allows the skin to breathe and maintain its natural tone. When makeup is left on overnight, it inhibits this recovery, holding on to free radicals and causing fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, it leaves your skin looking dull and less vibrant. It can even result in clogged pores and breakouts.

To prevent this, try the double cleansing method. This method gets skin thoroughly clean so that it can benefit most from the overnight healing and repair process. Start by using an all-natural, non-toxic makeup remover that eliminates dirt, bacteria, oil, and makeup without stripping your skin of its natural moisture. For the second phase of cleansing, follow up with an organic, plant-based cleanser that deep-cleans and leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated.
