Skin is the largest organ of our body, so yeah, we should give some more priority and should take good care of it.
But most people carelessly do some worst things to their skin, which makes their skin worsen even more. This makes appear acne, pimples, rashes, itchiness, dark spots on your skin.
But no more now, in this post I will discuss the best habits and the worst habits to get flawless, glowing, and clear skin always.
For this article, I’ve picked up 10 Common Skincare Habits and divided them into two categories,
- Best Skincare Habits and,
- Worst Skincare Habits
Let’s first talk about the,
Worst Skincare Habits:
#1 Picking Skin –
A popped pimple can bring out Pus, and also spreads the bacteria and pushing them in the skin.
This creates swelling and brings out more breakouts. Many people I’ve seen keep touching their face consistently, I mean every time like while using a smartphone, Laptop, after tying their shoes, after opening doors, etc.
Already there are tons of bacteria sitting on your devices, on your door, etc. touching those even makes your hand full of bacteria, now these bacteria get transferred to your skin when you touch it.
These bacterias create more skin problems like acne, pimples, etc. That’s why changing this habit might reduce your breakouts.
#2 Over Washing –
Washing your face more often might be harmful to your skin, now you might say what the heck, we’ve heard that cleaning our face is healthy for our skin. But hey, just read this
Anything you do, if you do it over-limit that’s gonna be harmful to you.
and the above line is also relatable to your face. When we keep washing our face more often, our skin starts to get dry, and in response to this, our skin starts to produce more oil glands.
This makes the situation even worse. The best practice is to wash your face twice daily, first after you wake up and second before going to bed.
Most of us forget to wash our face before going to bed, but it’s important it washes, cause our all-day bacteria, pollution, and makeup needs to be washed. Not washing your face before bed can bring a lot of breakouts.
#3 Too Many Chemical Products –
Using these products consistently can even damage your skin, so make sure to always use natural, skin-friendly products.
I’ve suggested many natural skin care products in my previous article, you can check out here. Also, make sure to not use too many products on your skin rather making your skin healthy, they can damage it.
#4 Stress –
Stress can create such chemical reactions in the body, which makes our skin sensitive.
Have you ever noticed that when you are in stress you get more breakouts?
Spending time in nature, meditation, daily exercise are some of the effective ways to get rid of the negative thoughts, it also gives happiness to your body within.
#5 Salt + Milk –
You can many medications, used tons of cosmetic products but if you are drinking these combinations together, you’re messing with your skin.
Salt and Milk are the opposite diets. Mixing them together and drinking can cause acid reactions in your body, which also can be seen on the skin.
Make sure to avoid eating salt with milk like tea with salty biscuits or chips, etc. Keep a minimum of 30 minutes gap.
Best Skincare Habits:
#1 Food –
2. High Fiber Foods –
Whole wheat, Semi-brown rice, Millets (bajra), Oats, Beans, Lentils (dal), Vegetable salad is mandatory in your diet.
3. Avoid Negative Foods –
4. Soak Dry Fruits –
5. Minimum Sugar & Salt –
Similarly, “eat homemade, be healthy” (doesn’t sound that good though) is the best way to make your skin glow within.
#2 Exercise –
So more the exercise, healthier the skin.
#3 Wash Your Fabrics –
Excess oil from your skin, dirt, bacteria needs to be cleaned otherwise can lead to oily and acne-prone skin.
If your skin is sensitive then I will suggest you avoid synthetic fabric and prefer the cotton fabric.
#4 Be Hydrated –
Just like other cells, our skin cells are made up of water, without the adequate amount of water these cells can’t function properly.
Giving your body a proper amount of fluids will make your skin healthy and smooth. You can also increase fluids by intake of soups, juices, smoothies, tea, fruits, and also by some vegetables like cucumber, tomato, etc.
#5 Skincare Routine –
Take a big tablespoon of Besan (gram flour)
Add a small tablespoon of curd and honey
Finally, add 4-5 drops of lemon juice.
Try this remedy twice a week and just see the magic.
