1: You Eat Food That’s Not Good For Your Skin
Without you even noticing it, you might be eating a ton of food that is completely NOT “healthy” when it comes to taking care of your skin.

2: Not Undoing Your Makeup At Night
No matter how tired you are that night, or whatever is making you to sleep with your makeup on, you should NEVER forget to undo your makeup before going to bed.
According to Daily mail. Your skin will age 10 times firster if you sleep with your makeup on for 30 days only. This was after daily mail conducted a research on a woman who slept with her makeup on for an entire month, and reapplying her makeup again in the morning. (the research was done in 2013)
As you can see, if you sleep with your makeup on even for one night, you are already closer to making your skin look older than your actual age. Keeping your makeup on through the entire night can also cause acne and pimples, this is because you have not gotten rid/removed of the dirt on your skin.
For the sake of taking GOOD care of your skin and keeping it smooth, acne free and younger than it is, take off all your makeup every single night before you go to bed.
Wash your face properly, cleansing it with oil or wipe.
Develop a habit of doing this every night, you have your makeup on.
3: Constantly Touching Your Face
Do you always find yourself touching your face now and then? It might feel good, but it’s not good.
One thing you should realize is that the skin on your face is very very sensitive. Just a little bit of touching it (the skin) can cause a problem. As a result of your skin being sensitive, when you touch your skin especially regularly, your skin will end up contacting the dirt on your hands if not a bacteria.
Your hands have touched and made contact with a lot of things since you woke up, so putting those same hands on your face is not a good idea as they might be carrying a lot of bacteria and dirt that will negatively affect your skin.
The best thing to do is to try as much as you can NOT to touch your face, actually why would you touch your face when you have the perfect makeup on? Just avoid touching your face, it’s that simple. If you REALLY have to touch your face, just ensure that you’ve washed your hands, keep your hands clean before you touch you face, it’s good for you.
4: Over Exposing Your Skin To The Sun
One big skin care mistake people tend to make unknowingly is exposing their skin to direct sunlight. That’s a huge problem that needs to be fixed asap.
If you usually expose your skin to sunlight, that needs to change right away, if you want to maintain a healthy and young skin.
Even worse, exposing your skin to direct sunlight can lead to different types of skin cancer.
To avoid making this mistake, always wear sunglasses when you go out during the day, when the sun is pretty hot. When going out, especially when you know the sun does not favor your skin, consider
applying a moisturizer that has SPF on your skin before heading out. Take care of your skin to avoid any sunburn. Buy skin care products that will help you do just that.
5: Not Cleaning Your Makeup Tools
Brushes and sponges should also be cleaned regularly to get rid of any dirt in them. Just because your makeup kit doesn’t get out of your house DOESN’T mean it won’t get dirty. Everything is bound to get dirty at some point.
If you can NOT remember the last time you cleaned any of your makeup stuff, or you did clean them, but it was a long time ago, you have been doing it all wrong for the longest. And it’s time to make it right, from now on.
You might not be able to notice it but the tools you use for your makeup can also contain the same dirt and bacteria you are VERY much trying to avoid, so it’s always a good idea to clean your makeup kit, fully and more regularly.
