Have you ever been mistaken as the eldest child when you're really the bunso? Or been called Ate by someone obviously older than you? It sucks, right?! So to save you from stressful moments like these in the future, we rounded up a few things you need to stop doing to get your youthful glow back.
1. Applying facial products in a downward manner
This seemingly harmless habit promotes skin sagging and wrinkles! So instead of working your way down, just apply your skincare essentials from your chin to your forehead. While you're at it, keep the signs of aging at bay with the right dose of Vitamin C.
2. Stretching your skin while applying makeup
Raising your brows when putting on eyeshadow and tugging on your eyelids when using eyeliner often cause wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. If you really must pull and stretch your eye area, do it gently!
3. Trying every beauty hack you've seen on YouTube
Do NOT believe everything you see on the internet! Applying deodorant on your face will NOT combat oiliness; and using a permanent marker as your eyeliner isn’t a smart idea either.
4. Taking long, hot baths all the time
Hot water strips your epidermis of natural oils, leading to dry and itchy skin. Keep indulgent hot baths to a minimum and opt for lukewarm water instead.
5. Washing your face too often and over exfoliating
Cleaning your face more than necessary can dry out your skin, because it strips away your skin’s natural oils. Over-exfoliating, on the other hand, can damage your skin severely. So aside from not overdoing your cleansing routine, make sure you keep your skin smooth and supple by getting enough Vitamin E every day.
6. Not getting enough Zzz's
When it comes to routines for your body, sleep may be the closest thing to a fountain of youth. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you sleep, so allowing your body to rest leads to a whole lot of wonders for your looks.
7. Allowing Stress to Creep In and Affect Your Skin
When you don't deal with stress and let it wreak havoc on your body, your skin can be visibly affected, and you'll look totally tired and haggard. This ultimately makes you look older than you are, which is why you need to replenish the nutrients that stress strips off your skin and save yourself from the nightmare of looking old.

You get Vitamin C that helps repair damaged skin, Vitamin E that helps keep skin cells healthy from within, and Iron that helps beat pale skin.
