Well, the title says it! this is not a tag that I have found but just something I decided to share for fun! Although I invite you girls to make a post like this too - I'm sure we can learn from eachother's beauty sins and collectively agree to stop punishing our bodies in the name of beauty!
MAKEUP ON HOUSE DAYS... shh!
Yup - I'm one of those gals who wonders around the empty house in a tshirt, leggings... and a full face of makeup. This is a bad habit I really need to break because it is minging thinking about how little time my skin has to breathe.. That's right - your skin needs a break sometime! A day in the house is a perfect opportunity for those who don't like going face naked in public to wipe off the slap. In my defence it is often on these house days that I have space and time to do new makeup looks and blog FOTDs..
GOING TO SLEEP WITH MAKEUP... shh!
bad bad bad!! Sometimes I just cba removing it, and I know it's wrong and I know it's bad for my skin (you get so warm when you are sleeping that your pores will open up - absorbing all the yucky makeup covering your face!) It is also especially bad for eyelashes - which bend and stick in funny positions when covered in mascara and pushed against a pillow. Also, your pillow shall get minging
MAKEUP ON IN THE SHOWER... shh!
Ok, really I'm not too sure why I do this one, because no matter how hard I try to retain the makeup, I inevitably end up with panda eyes and watery foundation. So this should be an easy habit to break - and will allow for washing my face properly in the shower
NO SKINCARE ROUTINE... shh!
Well don't get me wrong - I use skincare, but I just don't have a routine. This wouldn't concern me, but I hear youtubbers and bloggers so often mention their hesitation at trying a new product because it will mess up their routine. maybe my skin could do with some regularity
NOT WASHING BRUSHES... shh!
(often - not washing them often enough!) I hardly ever set aside enough time for cleaning my makeup brushes! Right now half my brushes are awaiting another clean and I'm just hoping to fit this in in the next couple of days. When I do remember to wash them I use baby shampoo because I don't have a proper cleaner - this is much gentler than shampoos etc which contain chemicals such as SLS (which makes them foam) Also, remember to use lukewarm water - boiling hot water can melt the glue holding your bristles together
POPPING SPOTS... shh!
Slightly minging beauty sin here. I always have thought it best just to get rid of spots/zits/pimples right when I get them - though apparently applying pressure to 'pop' the spot actually pushes some of that disgusting gunk further back into your skin. Eew. However it takes a lot of willpower just to leave them be
DISPOSABLE RAZOR ABUSE... shh!
How many of us have used a disposable razor on bare skin? All of us, I suspect. So we have all once been familiar with the infamous and awful 'razor rash'. Ouch. Thinking about it makes me shiver. On holiday I had such an incident - remembering my legs needed a once over before going swimming. Not only did razor rash become the greatest sense in my body for over 24 hours, but I also cut myself, quite a lot. I did go swimming though (thankfully after going to all that trouble) however a shower that evening was genuine hell
PEELING MY NAILS... shh!
I genuinely can't help myself. my nails split, and instead of trying to work out ways to stop this and get healthy nails, I peel them. I need a slap, this is really bad for your nails! Any tips on getting my nails to stop splitting would be greatly appreciated!
OVER-DYING MY HAIR... shh!
So everyone at one point seems to say 'I regret everything I have done to my hair, I wish I had never messed with it and just appreciated my natural colour. Never dye your hair!' and those they speak to think 'It'll be different for me, let me make my own mistakes!' Well, I have gone from person 2 to person 1 and now cannot even remember what it is like to have my natural hair colour, sob. And I first started playing with my colour just one and a half years ago! It has just been quite a journey I have made in this time! I did like my ombre hair best, I just hadn't got it quite right and was getting fed up of being partially ginger.. My hair is very damaged - 100% split ends, also splitting and rejoining in the middle of some strands. Excellent..naaaat
