Check out the most common things people do that make them less attractive.

1. Squeezing Pimples

There is not a single person who hasn’t tried to do it at least once in their lifetime. No doubt picking at pimples is another habit you should get rid of if you want to improve your appearance in the long run. Squeezing pimples is the worst thing you can do to your skin. Popping them results in scars and infection.

The best way to stop bacteria from spreading is to wash your face properly on a daily basis. Use antibacterial lotion, special soap and cream. Do not wear makeup for some time and let your skin heal first.

2. Nail Biting

One of the most disgusting habits ever! Not only does nail biting affect your looks, it is also very unhealthy. You touch a great number of various things throughout the day and bacteria that stays on your hands and under your nails later on gets into your mouth.

As for the beauty – well, who wants their nails chewed and ragged? Chew gum instead. Ask for professional help, do yoga or coat your nails with a nasty-tasting polish.

 

3. Extreme Weight Loss

Crash dieting has a negative influence on your appearance. Fat is not the only thing you lose. You also lose muscles. Moreover, your metabolism slows down, your body lacks minerals and vitamins, your skin, nails, and hair suffer.

Do not starve! Make your menu healthy, include fruit and vegetables, lean protein and exclude junk food and sugary drinks. Do sports – alternate cardio with weight training. Cardio will burn fat while weight training will build built muscle. The result: healthy and toned up body.

4. Dirty Makeup Applicators

Applicators, brushes and sponges should always be clean. They accumulate makeup products, dead skin cells, dust and need to be regularly washed.

If not cleaned properly, they become the real reason why you have rash, infected skin or allergy. Replace old applicators with new ones – that’s the quickest way to prevent bacteria and infection from spreading.

5. Leaving Your Makeup On

Do you sometimes go to bed with your makeup on? Then no wonder what you see in the mirror next morning disappoints you. Clean your skin to avoid clogged pores and let your skin breathe at night. No matter how tired you are you can always spend at least two minutes to remove your makeup.

 

6. Licking Your Lips

Licking or chewing your lips make them even drier and chapped. This, in turn, makes you lick and chew them over and over again. That’s a vicious circle than you should break. This problem is easily solved. Purchase lip balm and regularly apply it on your lips. Balm will nourish, moisturize and protect your lips.
