Some of the habits we develop in attempts to improve our appearance can actually be harmful, and some of our habits are just damaging. Here are some bad beauty habits, according to Shape magazine:
- Cradling the phone against your face
- Sleeping with make-up still on
- Chewing your nails
- Playing with your hair
- Not flossing
And the top 2 cardinal sins? Smoking, and sun worship.
Lifescript.com adds these bad habits:
- Excessive hair brushing
- Shampooing every day
- Tanning (it bears repeating)
I simply have to add my own despised habit/pet peeve: ladies, put down the bleach already! That splotchy, streaked, striped, almost-plaid bleached-out mess on your head is outdated, boring, and so overdone. It’s like Jason from Friday the 13th; it just won’t die. I admit to being guilty of bleached-out stripes…oh, five years ago! And the trend was getting old then. Please, no more hair color that looks like it was done with a painting sponge and a bottle of Clorox. Consider this your intervention! You’ll thank me later.
