3 Mistakes That Are Messing With Your Skin

This post is contributed. 


Waking up to a dewy and rosy look is definitely something we’re all trying to achieve but, sadly, it’s not something we can enjoy every morning. While some days are great, others are bad - and it’s really not always that easy to understand exactly why.

All we can do is to continue with our regular skin care routine and hope for better days but there are, in fact, a few ways to make those bad skin days a bit fewer. Here is a handful of skin crimes things to avoid so that you can enjoy that dewy look a bit more often and avoid the days where everything seems dull and grey.

It’s not a bulletproof way to perfect skin every day, of course, but it does make it a bit easier to feel happy about what you see in the mirror.

#1 Not getting enough sleep

Those hours you invest every night will have a lot to say about how you feel the following day, for sure, but it will also determine how fresh and healthy you look. Someone who isn’t getting enough sleep will both be irritable and rather skittish in addition to having dull and sluggish skin.

It’s not just about the dark circles underneath your eyes, though, as a solid eight hours of sleep every night will help you to look a lot fresher overall. Try to go to bed at the same hour every evening and find a routine that helps you to calm your mind a bit when you finally do go to bed; that way, you’ll get the most out of your hours of sleep.

#2 Not eating right

It’s not actually that surprising that the little things that help to improve our health, in general, also affect how healthy our skin looks. A diet that is high in fruits, vegetables, vitamins, and fibre will definitely help to make your face look a lot better - and it might even contribute to clearing up some of your acne, if this is your biggest skin woe.

Sure, it helps to use a good moisturizer for acne prone skin as well, though, but trying to steer clear from the foods that cause inflammation in your body could also help out a lot. Try it for a couple of weeks and see if it helps - if not, you should just visit a good dermatologist instead to get rid of the problem.

#3 Not exercising enough

If you’d like to see a fresh and healthy face in the mirror, you should go for the kind of exercise that gets your blood pumping. A good jog at least three times a week will surely help you out with this - but remember to wash off all that sweat as soon as you’re back home.


It’s so important to have these three habits under control both for your health and for the general appearance of your skin. Run yourself tired and go to bed a bit earlier today, in other words, after eating lots of fruits and vegetables and you might notice that you’re both feeling and looking much better than you did last week. 

Until next time my friends,
