Wrapping wet hair in towel


Locking your tresses in a towel after a head bath is a recipe for disaster! Shampooing your hair is not the end of your hair care regime. Wet hair is more vulnerable to breakage as it can stretch easily.

Why avoid it: If you rub your hair with a towel, it gets tangled and breaks the hair shaft. This damages your otherwise healthy hair. Is it worth the risk? You can squeeze excess water by gently using a cotton cloth as big as a towel as cotton is gentler on your hair. To detangle your hair, use a wide-toothed comb.


Pricking pimples


You pricked it as it was embarrassing and you squeezed it because it looked ugly. Admit it, you all have done this?

Why avoid it: While it is tempting to pinch an eruption, it is best to let it die its own death and heal naturally. Pricking increases the chances of scars and may also worsen inflammation. If you have a chronic acne or infection, it is best to go to a dermatologist who would guide you better and prescribe medications and procedures, if required. Moreover, eat skin-healthy foods and follow a skincare regime to avoid a pimple that spoils your day.

Using makeup brushes and sponges without cleaning


Do you clean your hairbrush and comb regularly? Do you clean your toothbrush? Then why do you insist on using and reusing your makeup brushes and sponges without thinking about cleaning them, even if occasionally.

Why avoid it: Germs and skin oils get trapped in your makeup brushes and sponges. These come in contact with your face when you use them without cleaning them properly. So, before that makeup brush comes in touch with your face, give it a good rinse with some lukewarm water, and allow them to air dry. You can also clean them with a mild shampoo. Do this at least twice in a month.


Heat styling your hair too often


Do you like to style your hair every other day? Well, remember that you are causing an irreversible damage to your hair.

Why avoid it: Heat styling is one of the most common causes of split-ends, and dull and brittle hair. If you can’t give your hair some rest, we would recommend you go natural at least two-three days a week without styling. This gives your hair ample time to get the lost moisture back. As it is you will be doing a lot of elaborate styling for your wedding functions, so give it some break before the ceremonies begin.

Sleeping with makeup on


Do you sleep away to glory with smokey eyes, foundation-slapped cheeks and lipstick-laden pout, hoping to run into your fiancé in your dreams? Time to wake up before its too late for your skin!

Why avoid: Makeup clogs pores on the skin and discourages secretion of a lubricant that is responsible for moisturising your skin naturally. This eventually causes acne. Besides, eye makeup can cause an allergic reaction or infection.

Dear brides (or those who will soon be in their shoes), make a note of these beauty habits and break free from this vicious circle of bad beauty habits, before its too late!
