Things you’re doing that are ruining your skin

We all want to have immaculate skin, but that doesn’t mean just putting more and more products on to it. Your lifestyle is affecting your skin and how you look, so if you want to know what changes to make to your lifestyle to help your skin read on…

Going to the swimming pool

Swimming is great for you, but chlorine from the pool can wreak havoc with your skin. If you go to the pool make sure you clean thoroughly with a sudsy soap and make sure to moisturise too. Chlorine can dry your skin out.


Drinking coffee

Coffee might give you a boost in the morning, but it can cause your skin to dry out, which can magnify wrinkles. Drink a glass of water with a slice of orange or lemon instead.


Taking a long shower

If might be relaxing to take a long shower, the heat relaxes your muscles, and the steam can help clear our lungs and nose, but taking too long can cause your skin to dry out because water strips our skin of natural oils. Take a bit less time in the shower and moisturise when you come out to maintain your skin’s health.


Not drinking enough water

Your cells thrive on water and if we don’t hydrate then our skin is the first place to show any lack of water by looking dry. Drink at least two litres of water every day to keep your skin in top condition.


Wearing dirty sunglasses

If you don’t regularly clean your sunglasses all the oils and gunk that gather on them can try to get back into your skin when you wear them. This means more bacteria which means more chances of an outbreak.


Not getting enough sleep

Sleep hormones are what tells our body to start regenerating during the hours we’re asleep. If you interrupt this you’re not letting your body repair itself, so make sure you get at least 7 hours sleep every night to help give your skin a chance to regenerate.


Squinting your eyes

Squinting to read things does nothing but putting a strain on our eyes and causes deep wrinkles around the eyes. If you can’t read something go to the optician and get glasses. Squinting is a terrible look and it will make you look terrible!


Sleeping on dirty pillowcases

Your pillowcase is drooled on, soaks up all the oils from your hair and face and can gather dust. All of these things are horrible to your skin. Make sure you have clean bedsheets. Your skin will thank you for it.
