Have you been on social media for a long time now? Have you noticed that everyone is perfect, especially women? They all have beautiful shiny hair, perfect gel nails and eyebrows that are truly on fleek. They also have a perfect figure and wear color-coordinated gym outfits. But you know what? That's not actual reality. Most women, if not all of them, aren't perfect. In fact, they're flawed. I'm flawed. And that's okay. I think it's really important that we embrace who we really are. I think it's important that we laugh about who we really are.
A few days ago, I had an idea. You see, I have lots of bad habits, especially beauty habits. So, I wanted to see if other women could relate. And do you know what I found out? Women are all the same.
So here are the 7 worst beauty habits women have. I may or may not have some of them.
1. Sleeping with makeup on
Believe it or not, sleeping with makeup on is the number one worst habit women have. It's funny because it doesn't take more than 5 minutes to remove your makeup. Still many women struggle to do it. Why? LAZINESS. It's called laziness.
2. Shaving without cream
Is it because we're cheap or is it because we're lazy? I think it's because we're lazy (again). It already takes hours (ok maybe not hours) to wash and condition our hair, so why would we spend another hour foaming our legs? Right? It makes no sense.
3. Over-plucking eyebrows
I don't know what it is, but somehow we can't keep our hands off of our eyebrows. We tell ourselves, "just one hair, just one," but then we end up looking like a new-born baby. Go figure!
4. Not washing makeup brushes
If you're washing your makeup brushes, you're either lying or you're an alien. I mean who washes their makeup brushes? I definitely haven't washed them since the 90s.
5. Keeping beauty products past their expiry date
Did you know that beauty products, just like food, have an expiry date? For instance, you should replace your mascara every three months and your foundation every twelves months. Who knew that?
6. Ripping off shellac nail polish
Us women, we're not only lazy when it comes to beauty, but we're also impatient. Instead of going to the nail salon to get our shellac removed, we peel it. It's free and quick.
7. Popping pimples
We know it's extremely bad for our skin, but we still do it. It's the same story as with eyebrows. We say, "just one pimple, just one," but we always end up looking like a lobster.
If there's a habit that you think I missed, feel free to let me know in the comments.
