We all want to take care of our bodies and appearances.

That’s why we put so much effort into skin care routines and beauty regimens that will make us look our best. Unfortunately, there are so many things that can age us more quickly, and some of them are habits we carry out on a daily basis. Pay attention to these bad beauty habits and banish them from your life in the new year.

1. Let your hair down. Too many ponytails can lead to a receding hairline or even baldness.

4. Please keep crossing your legs while wearing that miniskirt, but when you’re relaxing at home, you should uncross to keep blood circulating properly.

5. You’re just asking for split ends if you brush your hair straight out of the shower.

10. Stop touching your face! It’s a surefire way to make yourself break out.

11. Lay off the pore-clogging powder and try some blotting papers first.

12. If you’ve got everything but the kitchen sink in your purse, you could be doing a number on your back.

13. Use thin layers of cream, otherwise you’ll suffocate your face.

14. If you hate exercising, the good news for you is that running too much ages your skin. Sorry, health nuts.

15. Fruit juice can lead to wrinkles. Try adding some green veggies to that smoothie, too.
