1. Not Removing Your Makeup
We've all done it, but that doesn't mean it's okay.
We're talking about falling asleep without taking your makeup off.
Your makeup contains tons of chemicals that seep into your pores, leaving them clogged.
If you consistently forget to remove your makeup each and every night, you are only setting yourself up for failure.
So next time you think about sleeping in your makeup, think about the health of your skin.
2. Forgoing the Sunscreen
If you aren't using a daily SPF, you should reconsider this habit.
Your skin is super sensitive to sunlight. By not applying daily sunscreen, you are increasing your risk of wrinkles and dark spots on your skin. And who wants to add age to their skin?
Having trouble remembering to add sunscreen to your daily routine?
Try using a foundation or makeup primer that will double as an SPF. There are tons of these types of dual makeup/SPF options out there for you to choose from.
This way, you will kill two birds with one stone.
3. Washing Too Much
You definitely want to make sure that you are cleaning your skin daily with a good cleanser.
But what you don't want to do is over cleanse your skin.
Especially if you already have dry skin.
Overwashing your skin will remove the essential oils in your face that you actually need.
So stick to washing your face with a cleanser once a day. Use a light cream and water for later on in the evening (after you remove your makeup!). This will prevent from removing too many oils, and keep your skin looking fresh.

4. Not Getting Enough Sleep

During your sleep cycle, your skin works to repair the cells on your face.
If you are not getting enough sleep, your skin cells don't have time to refresh.
