Old habits die hard and bad habits must die immediately especially when it comes to beauty. We have come up with a list of the most unforgivable beauty habits that must be kicked this summer. So say good riddance to the bad, and hello to good.

Let’s begin!

Sleeping With Makeup

There is no reason why you should still be going to bed with your makeup on. With the emergence of cleansing wipes, the process of removing your makeup at night has become simple and stress-free. Not to mention, sleeping with a full face clogs your pores and exposes your skin to acne and zits.

Chipped Nails

It may be difficult to address nails at the first sight of chipped lacquer. However, when your nails are painted with bright colors and/or designs, chipped polish looks borderline tacky. It’s easy to go days with chipped nail polish but do yourself a favor and whip out the nail polish remover or a fresh coat of paint ASAP.

Biting Your Nails

Nail biting can be one of the hardest habits to break. Some people bite their nails because they’re nervous and others do it because they’re bored or dealing with other emotional issues. Nail biting is a nasty habit that prevents healthy, beautifully growing nails. If you find that nail biting is more than a difficult habit to break, be sure to check out our 12 Step Program For Nail Biters.

Not Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes

It’s easy to go months without cleaning your makeup brushes. It’s a beauty task that easily gets overlooked. Its crucial to clean your brushes around every three weeks because if you don’t you may end up with clogged pores, zits and pimples and/or bacterial infections on your face. Yuck! Not to mention, dirty brushes could lead to muddied makeup and cause your favorite products to look discolored.

Frequently Flat Ironing Your Hair

This is for women who like to wear their hair in straight styles. During the hot summer months, hair is extremely susceptible to humidity and sweat. This may cause you to pull out the flat iron more than you should. Flat ironing your hair several times a week will result in fried and heat damaged hair. Be very cautious when flat ironing, and keep the heat application to a minimum.

Picking at Your Skin

At the first sign of a blemish, your initial response may be to pick at it in hopes that you can decrease the blemish’s size and improve its appearance. Whether you have a pimple or a skin condition like eczema, do not pick at your skin! Picking at your skin can make blemishes worse and may cause scarring.
