We do so much for beauty! There are so many tricks, tips and hacks to look perfect and we often do it all. Have you ever thought of you really need to do that beauty hack? Of if you really need that beauty habit? We certainly waste so much time in some of the beauty habits we often don’t require. Here are some beauty habits that you don’t need to mandatorily do and can be skipped without any problem:
PLUCKING THE EYEBROWS
Plucking the eyebrows is a habit we all can give a miss. There are other options called as waxing or threading that can do a better job! Plucking or tweezing is certainly good in emergencies but do not make it a habit as it can actually ruin your eye brow shape overtime. Instead go for regular threading or waxing sessions.
BUFFING YOUR NAILS
Buffing nail is a good practice before applying a nail polish or when you are getting a manicure done since it makes your nails smooth for an even application of a nail polish. If you have a habit of frequently buffing your nails every other day, you need to stop doing that as soon as possible. Frequent buffing can make your nails weak and prone to breakage.
TAKING BUBBLE BATHS
Unfortunately, your favourite bubble baths do more harm than good! You don’t really need a bubbling bath since it actually makes your skin dry instead of moisturizing it. Foam can strip your skin of its natural oils and cause cracking of skin. Instead, you can add honey, milk, Epsom salt, oatmeal etc. for a relaxing and moisturizing bath.
STYLING HAIR EVERYDAY
Styling hair everyday especially by using heating tools should be avoided. Styling everyday can make your hair rough, brittle and prone to breakage. Not only is it damaging, but is also a waste of your time! Instead go for no-heat hair styling routine.
Cutting cuticles is something t6o avoid entirely even when you go for a manicure. Cutting cuticles can damage your nails as cuticle’s primary function is to protect your nail and nail bed. Instead, apply cuticle oil and always push it back gently and slowly without damaging it.
Exfoliation is needed to get rid of the dead skin cells, to improve blood circulation and to make skin elastic and clean. If you are exfoliating your body and skin daily, its time you stop! Exfoliating daily can make your skin irritated and inflamed.
Moisturizing is good, over moisturizing? No! Our skin needs moisture to stay supple and soft but over moisturization can leave your skin greasy and may also sometimes clog pores resulting into acne and blackheads. Always moisturize as and when required, and use the product according to the needs.
