5 ways to ruin your skin fast

Keeping your skin youthful isn’t hard, as long as you stop these 5 bad habits now

Sleeping with Makeup On
Late nights can lead to lazy skin care. But skipping that 5-minute cleansing can ruin your complexion in the long run.

Why?

“Your makeup has already had all day to migrate to the pores, where it concentrates and causes irritation and inflammation,” Waldorf says. “Then, overnight, your face is pressed against the pillow, you sweat and the makeup congregates at the pores even more.


Overplucking
Those annoying stray facial hairs are driving you crazy, so you keep plucking them. Stop!

"People end up with discoloration, scarring and ingrown hairs from chronically manipulating the area,” Waldorf says. “Just trim the hair – that way you’re not hurting yourself.


Popping pimples
Hands off that pretty face! Picking, poking and prodding your pimples can turn mild acne into a serious problem because it spreads bacteria.


Lighting Up
Want to look old fast? Then light up.

Smoking accelerates aging, says Michelle Aszterbaum, M.D., a dermatologist in Newport Beach, Calif. “It inhibits the body’s ability to repair damage caused by the environment,” she says. And that means lots more wrinkles.


Sun Worshipping
The next time you run out the door without sunscreen, remember this number: 30 years.

That’s how long it can take sun damage to show up as wrinkles, says celebrity doctor Dr. Mehmet, star of "The Dr. Oz Show." That means tanning in your 20s will bring on crow’s feet and forehead furrows in your 50s.
