I want you to stand in front of the mirror and look at your reflection. Then, close your eyes and reimagine the moment when you were at your most beautiful self.
Now, open your eyes and ask yourself, did you age gracefully?
We are accountable of our own skin so it’s necessary to adapt a skin-loving routine and invest on the right products or else, we might say hello to unwanted wrinkles earlier than expected.
Let’s save that youthful glow by busting these addictive and unhealthy ageing habits we are guilty of doing on a daily basis:
The Junk Food Junkie
Expect a potential pimple or two every time you finish a bag of chips. Scientists have figured out that junk foods contain processed carbohydrates, sodium and cholesterol that can trigger acne outbreaks.
So for your next binge watching sesh, munch on healthier snacks rich in vitamin E like fruits and oats that are good for the skin, figure, and brain.
The Soda Senpai
A big fan of colored drinks and sodas? Well, hear this out!
The thirst-quenching relief that soda gives you is only a placebo effect of being hydrated because in reality, it dehydrates your skin even more.
Moisturizers cannot save your skin alone; lessen your soda intake, drink more water, and end up looking like a woman with skin resembling fish scales!
The Filthy Finger Freak
This is the Golden Rule: Never touch your face with dirty hands.
Imagine your face like a museum piece—beautiful, delicate, and untouched. Although mostly done out of boredom, we often touch our face without being the aware of the germs that our hand might be contaminated to.
Doing this may aggravate your acne and rashes so if you have no reason to touch your skin, then do some favor and leave it alone (or if you can’t help it, then at least apply some hand sanitizer before doing so).
The Sleepy Time Killer
We’re all guilty of this, ladies!
We love to catch up on our favorite TV show or do a chika marathon with our amigas so we end up wide awake and hyper at 4 in the morning.
Lack of sleep makes your skin dull and leaves huge dark circles under your eyes, wrinkles and fine lines. Hit the sack as early as possible and take the rest you deserve; your body will thank you for it.
Striving to be youthful is not a bad thing…and so is having wrinkles and scars. Learning to own your body and working on your best assets will radiate love from the inside out; revealing an effervescent and effortless beauty.
