Not always the main cause of pimples, wrinkles and blackheads are problems with the gastrointestinal tract, heredity, or stress. In fact, the greatest harm the skin bring habits that girls think it is harmless. Which ones are the most dangerous?
Have you ever thought about how many things we do “automatically”? Do what damage they can cause to health and beauty, especially after 30 years? At first glance it seems that our habits are completely harmless, but the negative effect they accumulate every day. So, what mistakes we make regularly, although not even aware of it?
1. I think that makeup has no expiration date
How like girls: buy a bright shade for a party and after a single use forget about them for a year. And this attitude women have virtually all the beauty tools. This is fundamentally the wrong approach. The contents of the bags need to regularly check the expiration date. The funds, which you have not in use, it is better to throw it away, not even allowing the thought “what if I might be of use.” If the Foundation, powder, shadows not specified shelf life, it can be defined in other ways.
For example, mascara, lip gloss, liquid eye shadow can be used not more than 6 months after opening. Concealer will be your assistant throughout the year. “Long lived” in the cosmetic products are powder, bronzer, blush. They can be used 2-3 years, but only if they have a dry texture. Just careful to relate to products that contain water: fluids, gels, a variety of creams. Such caution stems from the fact that their texture, promotes the growth of bacteria. Remember, expired cosmetics should break up as soon as possible, otherwise problems with the skin is guaranteed.
2. My brushes every few months
Ask your friends how often they result in the order of makeup brush. We are sure that most of them don’t even know what they need to be washed, not to mention regular maintenance. Now let’s think about the consequences of such actions: after each procedure, make-up brushes accumulate not only cosmetics, but also sebum (secretion secreted by the sebaceous glands). And if you’re not keep in the purse, and in “random” places (on the table, on the nightstand, in the bathroom, and so on), the bonus to the above pollutants will be dust and maybe dirt. And this whole mix then you carry on the skin, making the real crime against beauty and health.
The result of such actions may be irritation, redness, inflammation and even allergies. To avoid negative consequences, you need to regularly wash your hands. The frequency of care will depend on their purpose: a brush for applying lipsticks and creams should be washed every day, preferably immediately after use, and instances for powder, eye shadow and blush can be cleaned once a week. They should also be sprinkled with a special solution to disinfect.
3. Doing sports with full makeup on your face
Of course, the girls always want to look at 100, regardless of whether they are at home, at work or on a walk. But there’s a place better to visit without the war paint. We’re talking about the gym. If you can’t afford to come to the training completely without make-up, touch up eyes with waterproof eyeliner and mascara, and on lips apply the gloss. About concealer, face powder and other cosmetics designed to camouflage skin imperfections, it is better to forget temporarily. Otherwise, the sweat, the dust, sebum and other impurities mixed with makeup and create a perfect ground for the emergence of bacteria. So it is advised to clean the skin prior to the lesson and after it, in order not to provoke the reproduction of harmful substances.
4. Wash only micellar water
At the moment, micellar water is the most popular tool for removing makeup as it is effective and suitable for all skin types. However, this product can not replace a full-fledged washing. Moreover, “micellar” need to wash away the foam or gel, because in fact, the basis of its composition, the same surface-active substances (surfactants), only in a different shape. And they are known to be aggressive which can affect the skin. Therefore, dermatologists and beauticians in one voice assured that the cleansing of the skin should be at least two steps: removing make-up with micellar water and washing foam.
5. Injuring the skin
Job on one million roubles: show us the girl who’s not itching to jump to remove a pimple. Not found? Not surprising, because the zit on the woman’s face is like a red rag to a bull. And okay, if he squeezed according to all the rules (washing of hands, disinfecting the site of the lesion, did hot the mask after cleansing and so on), but no, much easier to go the easier route. Alas, few think about the fact that the wound susceptible to infection, and incorrect actions may lead to the appearance of scars and purple spots. Besides caused microtrauma contribute to accelerated “wear and tear” of the tissues and premature aging.
We should also talk about self-elimination of black spots. Trying to get rid of them, you have a lot of pressure on the skin and expand the pores. In order to eliminate the consequences of such actions, will need to consult a professional beautician.
6. Rarely change pillowcases
Every year dermatologists increasingly emphasize on the fact that the pillowcases need to be changed as often as possible, at least once in 4 days. This position is due to the fact that the skin is regularly in contact with bedding. And as in the night time production of sebum aktiviziruyutsya, and the skin pushes to the surface the toxins in the morning on the pillowcases there is a large amount of pollution. Add to this the dust, which during the day accumulates on the pillow, especially in the summer when the Windows are open.
7. Sleep on my side
And again about “bedding” the nuances. The most comfortable position for most people – on the side. But such convenience has a negative impact on the skin. In this position on the supporting part of the face appear unpleasant creases. They only disappear when the person turns. But this is not happening immediately, but after 3-4 hours. In order not to provoke the appearance of early wrinkles, train yourself to sleep on your back is the safest position for your face.
8. Constantly checking your phone
Given the growing popularity of gadgets, experts have created special beauty products designed to protect the skin from HEV-rays emitted by the screen of smartphones. According to them, the so-called “blue light” provokes premature aging. This question was not studied until the end, so buy innovative cosmetics in the store no need. But the fact that the regular tilt of the head to the phone or laptop and cause the appearance of wrinkles on the neck is undeniable.
9. Lean on the carbs
To harm the figure, skin and health in General simple carbohydrates. Most of them contains sugar, soda, pastries, sweet fruits. So if you consume them in large quantities, don’t be surprised when in the morning you will find on the face a few pimples. The thing is that fast carbs in the body trigger the process of glycation. The result of collagen fibers which is responsible for the youthfulness and elasticity of the skin stick together and are unable to perform their functions. So, if you wish to be healthy and beautiful, carefully watch your diet.
