Beauty Tips: Things to Avoid

Sometimes the littlest things make a world of a difference. Regular habits and certain foods and drinks can make your skin look spectacular. But on the flip side, there are things that may be unknown to us that are harming our skin and hair too.

That’s where I come in. I’m constantly researching natural remedies to share with all of you in ensuring you have the best skin and hair of your life. Here’s a list of things that should be avoided to help keep you looking beautiful, young and fresh.

Coffee:
Caffeine is a major culprit when it comes to dry skin. Avoid the magnification of wrinkles and instead, quench skin by drinking lots of H2O. To make sipping on water more exciting try adding a couple of slices if orange or lemon to enhance the flavor.

Long-hot Showers:
Many of us enjoy long, hot showers to relax us. Unfortunately, the hot water and steam strip away the outer most layer of epidermis causing scaly and dried skin. If your skin starts to turn red and itch in shower, it’s time of get out.

Salty Snacks:
Savory snacks can cause dehydrated skin. Excess sodium in your diet can suck the moisture out of skin leaving it dry and dull. To avoid this, cut back on salty treats and invest in a hydrating moisturizer.

Waxing:
Although, waxing is known as one of the nest hair-removal techniques, too much waxing can result in raw skin and increased bumps. Give your skin at least three weeks to regenerate, especially in sensitive areas

Lips:
With three to five cellular layers of skin that rest upon lips, make sure your beauty regime includes taking care of them too. Dried out lips not only look bad, but also make your lips age faster. Look for lipsticks and lip balm that contain petrolatum, dimethicone, and glycerine to help keep them kissable and hydrated.

Air Comditioning:
If you’re an ‘AC’ junkie during the summer months, this tip will probably catch you off guard. Instead of cranking up the cool air, turn your air conditioner down, giving your skin extra moisture. If your cooling unit is always blaring, you’re stripping the air of humidity and moisture your skin needs.

Eye Brows:
Over tweezing brows can cause major damage to your skin and make your face look over done. When tweezing, always remember to wash tweezers with antibacterial soap before usage. You can get your skin ready fir tweezing by placing a hot towel over the area to open up your pores and soothe the skin by applying a good moisturizer.

By following the above recommendations, you can bring your skin closer to being flawlessly beautiful!
