3 Major Bad Habits That Cause Skin Problems

3 Major Bad Habits That Cause Skin Problems

“A change in bad habits leads to a change in life” 

Ever wondered, even by owning the best beauty products and going for the most raved aesthetic treatments, you still see skin problems existing? 

Sometimes it’s important to take a time of reflection and look at what we practice day to day. 

Most of us may have cultivated bad habits that stop us from having the flawless, youthful, and glowing skin that we have always dreamed of. 

Don’t know what they might be? This article will tell you more about these habits and what are the ways to get better skin.

There are 3 major habits that contribute to pimple-angry, dull, and/or ageing skin. Kick these habits away and you’ll have higher chances of freeing yourself from all the nasty skin problems that you have.

Bad Habit that Causes Acne

The #1 bad habit that most may have, without realising, is over-washing their skin. This is especially true if you sweat more than the average person or have oily skin. The subconscious decision is to wash your face more often or shower more to “get rid of” the oil or sweat. Some may also pick a stronger cleanser that gives you a squeaky clean feeling after cleansing.

If you don’t already know, squeaky clean is not good for your skin. Your body needs the natural oils on your skin to prevent acne from popping out. The oil traps foreign particles and protects your skin against bacteria. One of such bacteria is P acnes (Propionibacterium acnes) – the pesky bacterium that causes acne. When you strip away the oil from your skin, you leave your skin vulnerable to this pesky bacteria and other opportunistic bacteria.

There are many effective solutions to solve your acne-prone skin problems, and excessive cleaning is definitely not one of them. A new method that is becoming increasingly popular is to consume beauty drinks. Unlike topical products, beauty drinks improve your skin condition from the inside. They are packed with key nutrients that help you balance sebum production and reduce the appearance of acne scars and enlarged pores. For acne-prone skin, we would suggest the VitaRealm® Skin Perfecting Essence. Not only does this beauty drink fulfil the above wonders, it also contains 2,000 collagen peptides that boost skin elasticity and hydration!

 

Bad Habit that Leads to Dull Skin

Dull skin can be caused by a multitude of bad habits, such as smoking, excessive alcohol, and/or poor diet. However, the predominant factor that leads to dull skin is sun damage, especially for many who skimp on sunblock or worse, not apply at all.

It is of utmost importance to protect your skin with adequate sunscreen, especially in sunny Singapore. We know this is not an easy feat as sunscreens tend to wear off during the day and reapplying it can be a chore.

Another way of inhibiting the level of melanin (which produces dark pigments on our skin) production in your body is to take VitaRealm® Whitening Collagen. The beauty drink, formulated using ingredients with 10 patents from 6 countries, contains Collagen peptides that promote collagen synthesis and improve skin’s elasticity. It also has other key ingredients that work in synergy to help reduce the production of dark pigments and boost skin’s hydration. To read the full ingredient list, click here.  

 

 

Bad Habit that Speeds up Ageing 

Bubble tea shops and trendy dessert cafes have been a staple sight and go-to place for many Singaporeans. With a plethora of varied brands and tastes all around us, it is difficult not to cave into these temptations.

The long lines at bubble tea stores after lunch, dinner or during tea time, is an indicator that it has become an irreplaceable part of many diets. One bubble tea a day may seem insignificant, but did you know it is sufficient to fast-track ageing? According to the World Health Organisation, the recommended daily sugar intake is 25g (6 teaspoons). However, just one cup of brown sugar milk tea contains 92.5g of sugar (18.5 teaspoons)! This clearly exceeds the daily recommended amount! On top of the one cup of milk tea, additional sugar in other common food we consume in the Asian diet, like white rice, escalates the daily sugar intake multiple times above the recommended amount.  

Consuming too much sugar will lead to wrinkles, fine lines, and the sagging of skin. Excess sugar attaches itself to collagen fibres and produces advanced glycation end products (also known as AGEs) which cause the collagen fibres to lose its elasticity, bringing forth signs of ageing. Besides cutting down the daily sugar intake, you may also mitigate the effects of sugar by taking VitaRealm Anti- A.G.E. Essence.

This beauty drink is formulated to supplement your body’s collagen with a high dose of marine collagen and high antioxidant extracts. It is specifically catered to re-energize skin cells and fight sugar-induced skin ageing. It’s definitely a simple solution to reduce the effect of our high-sugar diet.

 

Where to get these beauty drinks

You can purchase all the above-mentioned three beauty drinks and many more wonderful health and wellness drinks and products from the VitaRealm® Beauty’s online store. Drinks in boxes of eight retail at an average price of $49.90.  You may also want to visit their official stores on Shopee or Lazada. Alternatively, you may visit personal care stores such as Unity, Watsons and Guardian. 

8 bottles will last you for a week. These beauty drinks are also fruity and refreshing. You can think of them as fruit juices and replace your afternoon bubble tea/sweet drinks with them. They cost the same but do so much more for your skin! We would say it’s pretty worth the investment!

Oh, do remember, these beauty drinks aren’t miracle drinks. You need to drink them every day for a sustained period of time to achieve the best results.
