Bad Beauty Habits!

Bad Beauty Habits: Part I

Wait, there’s more? Yes, just when you thought you were in the clear and absolutely innocent when it comes to beauty-oriented guilty pleasures, I have 5 more Bad Beauty Habits for you! But no need to fret! As per usual I have included my Fixer Uppers for the consequences of over-indulgence; whether you are looking to cut back or cut out those naughty habits, we have the perfect quick-tips for you!


Bad Beauty Habit #6— Wiping Your Face or Blowing Your Nose with Toilet Paper—Did  you know you are scratching your face!? TP and paper towels contain thick, unrefined pieces of wood that are literally scratching your face, which over time causes aging, not to mention discomfort. Ouch to the runny nose!

Fixer Uppers?
When it comes to your face, always always always use Kleenex, the cotton is refined and designed for your sensitive facial skin!

Bad Beauty Habit #7—Wearing Makeup While You Work Out that Bod—I know, I know, you want to look your beautiful best, always, even on the elyptical. So if you must indulge in this Bad Beauty Habit, make sure your makeup is mineral-free; this will help minimize the risk of breakouts.

Fixer Uppers?
Try Glo-Minerals!
Also, if you can, try to wash your face as-soon-as-possible post-workout! This will help further decrease your risk of breakouts!

 Bad Beauty Habit #8—I Love Tea and Red Wine—They both taste great, they both make you feel great, but they also really stain your teeth; which of course makes these delicious treats Bad Beauty Habits! You will rarely catch me without a straw in my drinks, as it cuts down on staining big time!

Fixer Uppers?
Use a straw! Your teeth will thank you!
Also, try Supersmile Whitening System, Toothpaste, Mum and Floss; super amazing!

Bad Beauty Habit #9—Seriously, Stop Picking at Your Face!—And if you absolutely must mess with your skin, do NOT use your fingernails, as this will insert dirt and whatever else your nails are harboring into your skin; increasing to potential for serious scaring.

Fixer Uppers?
Use Q-Tips, or wrap your fingertips with Kleenex before you go for the pore-clearing kill! For best results, do this after you have washed, steamed, or showered with warm water, and finish up with a cold rinse, clarifying toner, or astringent! One of my absolute favs is Skin Script’s Blemish Control Toner Pads!

 Bad Beauty Habit #10—Clean My What!? Change My What?!—The answers to those questions (in consecutive order) is Cell Phone and Pillowcase! Have you ever pulled that phone away from your ear and seen what’s on it? Or in my case, often allowing my 2-year-old to play with it only to have it returned to me with food, and goodies galore! And lets not forget your pillowcase! Sure, it smells okay, but much like your skin it accumulates dirt, oil, makeup, and dead skin particles. Would you go an extended period of time without washing your face? No!

Fixer Uppers?
For your cell phone, use a sanitizing wipe (be sure it is damp, and not wet! If liquid drips when you squeeze it, its definitely too wet for your phone! Do not use this!) or a little liquid hand sanitizer on a Kleenex.
Also, changing your pillowcase at least once a week will help ensure your sleeping on freshness. If you take a daytime nap with makeup on, I recommend changing it after too.  Trust me, your face will thank you!

If you have made it this far without being an offender of any of these Bad Beauty Habits, I solute you! And for those of you who please guilty to one or more of these sinful indulgences, don’t fret, it is never too late to stop a bad habit!
