5 Anti-Aging Skin Care Mistakes

Aging is a natural, but what you might not know is that you have some habits that are harming your skin. Check out these careless ways that you might be contributing to the premature aging of your skin. After all, no amount of anti-aging products can help you out if you aren’t properly taking care of your skin.

Leaving your makeup on –

Yes, you’re tired, but leaving you’re makeup on will not only mess up your sheets, it will also age your skin prematurely. Let your face rest and breathe for the day, by removing your makeup before you go to bed (or, if you can, as soon as you get home). Leave it on overnight, and you’re putting strain on your skin and enlarging the pores. Practicing this simple habit can help keep years off of your face and don’t forget that anti-aging products are even more effective when they aren’t fighting through a layer of makeup.
