Here are some of these habits that you might not know are actually harming your skin:

Swimming in pools treated with chlorine

If you love swimming and go to public pools then you might not realize how harmful chlorine could be for your skin. It may cause irritation, dryness, and could even bleach your skin. Make sure to use products for this exact need to ensure that chlorine is entirely removed from your body.

Taking hot showers

People who are fond of long and hot showers may not realize the effect of it on the skin. Bathing with hot water can dry out your skin and may even cause itchiness. Make sure to adjust the temperature and follow it up with a moisturizer.


Not wearing a clean pair of glasses/sunglasses

We might not keep a check on the cleanliness of our eyewear but using dirty hands can transfer the germs and it may stay on our skin which may cause breakouts.

Not drinking enough water

This is one of the most common pieces of advice and still, the least followed one. Make sure to stay hydrated throughout the day and keep a bottle with you to make it easier for you to remember.

Not changing your pillowcase

You not only rest your head on your pillow but your skin comes in contact with it too. Make sure to change your pillowcase regularly.  Dirty pillowcases can cause acne issues.
