Staying at home during this lockdown has definitely affected our daily life. We don't get to travel and enjoy the things we used to do before the pandemic. As a result, we start to have bad habits that affect our minds, body, and even our skin! Keep reading to know these bad skincare habits and how to solve them.
1. Lack of sleep
Have you been spending a lot of time on social media and streaming platforms? Many may have experienced this since we have limited things to do at home. However, this habit may lead to sleep deprivation, which can affect your skin radiance. Lack of sleep causes dull skin and premature aging.
As much as possible, get 7 or more hours of sleep to help your body and skin regenerate and relax.
2. Skipping SPF
You may not feel the need to apply sunscreen because you rarely step out of the house, but exposure to your phone and computer may still damage your skin. These devices emit blue light that can damage the collagen in the skin. This may lead to loss of skin elasticity and premature aging.
Since many are always facing their devices for online class and work, it is important to apply SPF for extra protection.
3. Skipping showers
Many may have skipped showers during lockdown because we rarely go out. While we don't get exposed to pollution and other dirt outside of our homes, we still need to shower regularly to remove sweat, oils, dead skin, and dirt on our skin.
Make sure to take shower daily to make sure that our skin is clean and hydrated.
4. Stress eating
When we are stressed, our stress hormones increase the production of oils in our skin, leading to clogged pores and acne breakouts. And when we stress eat unhealthy food with too much sugar, our skin elasticity is lessened--leading to premature aging and saggy skin.
Instead of resorting to stress eating, find other ways to relieve your stress like doing exercise, meditation, or other hobbies.
