Harmful habits

These are the things we sometimes skip when lazy that could be damaging our bodies as a result.

Everyone has a lazy moment, but have you ever wondered how skipping part of your daily routine could damage your health in the long term?

Here are the bad habits that are harming our health if we keep them up...

Not taking your make up off

Sleeping in a full face of make up after a big night out can seem like the easy option but any dermatologist will warn you of the harm its doing to your skin.

Harmful habits

It clogs your pores and is a major cause of spots, breakouts and dry skin. It can also dehydrate the skin making your face more prone to blemishes such as wrinkles, bags and age spots.

Forgetting to brush before bed 

When your tired sometimes its easy to flop into bed and forget to brush your teeth, but by doing so is bad for your dental health.

It allows bacterial plaque to grow while you're asleep and this can cause gums to become inflamed.

Hitting snooze 

On a weekday morning many of us can relate to the feeling of wanting to hit snooze over and over again.

However, shutting off your alarm interferes with the body's natural waking up mechanisms. Pressing the snooze button to give ourselves and extra ten minutes in bed prepares our body to start its sleep cycle again and will make us feel fatigued for the rest of the day.

Skipping breakfast

Harmful habits

We all know the saying that 'breakfast is the most important meal of the day' but many ignore that advice and head to work without anything in our stomachs.

Skipping breakfast will make your body crave energy and will make us want to eat bad things like refined sugars and carbohydrates.

Eating a well balanced breakfast will help set the body up for the day and keep us going until lunch.
