5 ways to stop 'effin up your skin

We get it. You’re a busy girl. Sometimes, it’s too much to drag yourself to the bathroom and take your makeup off after a late night gig, or to get those 8 full hours of snooze time. Turns out, these are things that are damaging our chances of getting that gorgeous, glowing skin we all crave.

And the best way to get that glow? Ahead, we’ve listed 5 things you can stop doing RN to help you on your way to crystal clear, sexy skin from head to toe.

1. Stop drinking Coke.

We love bubbles just as much you (promise), but annoyingly, fizzy carbonated drinks like Coke are doing pretty damaging stuff to our insides. And what you put into your body will reflect what it looks like from the outside.

The best solution? WATER. Litres of the stuff if you can. If you want extra skin points, add in a couple of slices of lemon – this will boost your collagen levels, which is essential in smoothing out the lines in your skin.

2. Stop stressing out.

Easier said than done, we know. But there’s no need to stress – you’re doing awesome, and keep telling yourself that. Just let that sh*t go, and not only will you feel 10 times better, but your skin will thank you for it too.

If you’re feeling all out of balance, try yoga for ultimate relaxation, or HIIT training to get all that stress out. Your endorphin levels are guaranteed to go through the roof!

3. Stop skipping the skincare.

Not got the time to cleanse, exfoliate, tone, moisturise, and apply serum? I mean, who does? Getting your skincare done and dusted doesn’t have to be that long an ordeal. All you really need is a good cleanser and moisturiser for your chops, and some Scrub Love for your bod.

Plus, it’s all super satisfying – stepping out of the shower with baby soft arms and legs? Swiping all the makeup and grime off your face after a long day? It doesn’t get much better than that!

4. Stop using dirty brushes.

Those brushes you use day in, day out, can quickly gather up a shed load of bacteria. The trick? Just give them a quick rinse after every use (the makeup pros call it “spot cleaning”).

Or, even better, give them a good old deep clean tonight, and do this every Sunday night as part of your pamper routine.

5. Stop cranking up the heat.

As tempting as it is to step into a steaming hot bath or shower in the winter, annoyingly it’s not doing our skin any good. Hot water strips away all of your skin’s natural oils, which help fight against acne, eczema and psoriasis. Instead, just dial it down a notch and get your water nice and warm to keep your skin way happier and healthier.
