  • Addiction to caffeine 

This is difficult to quit especially coffee and tea. If you are addicted to coffee and tea at a particular part of the day, try reducing the quantity of coffee or tea in your cup day by day. We can make it simpler for you by switching to green tea or maybe some coconut water and healthy munchies like nuts and seeds. 

  • Addiction to alcohol and smoking 

Smoking and alcohol are injurious to health. They harm your lungs, liver, and skin too. They cause major problems with dehydrated, dark skin and lips.

  • Erratic hours of sleeping 

Sleeping late and getting up late too is a bad habit for health. “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Make it a habit to go to bed at 10:30 pm and wake up by 6:00 am. Regular timing will help your body clock work better. It will give you glowing skin too. The easy way to get this right sleep timing is to work hard the entire day and have sound sleep at night. 

  • Lack of exercise 

Early morning exercise is very good for your health. If you want a glowing skin, start exercising in the morning or do some yoga and meditation. 

  • Sleeping with makeup on 

We understand you are tired after a long day of work. Take out some time for self-care at night for your skin. A minimum investment of 15-20 mins daily at night before you go to bed can work wonders for your skin.  

  • Using wrong makeup products 

Using wrong makeup products like expired products or may be overloaded with too many chemicals can harm the skin. Switching the products and changing them frequently can also harm the skin. Try to stick to one brand of makeup products. It is advisable to use a natural skincare brand for beautiful skin.
