Seven Deadly Skin Sins
Want gorgeous skin? Start by making sure you don't commit any of these skin-damaging crimes
Thou shalt not: wear makeup to bed"At night is when all of your skin rejuvenation happens," says Lorencin. If you wear makeup to bed your skin can't get the oxygen it needs. When skin is suffocated, "your natural collagen building process is compromised," she says. Kunin adds, "it will also clog pores and act as food for bacteria," which can cause breakouts and make pores more visible. In addition, if you don't wash your face at night, you're not doing anything to fight aging, combat pimples or treat other skin issues since you're not exfoliating or adding beneficial spot treatments or moisturizers.
