8. Neglecting Your Neck
Your neck are exposed to the same aging effects as your faces. Therefore, the skin there is similarly sensitive and is expose to sunlight almost year-round. When applying your SPF and moisturizer, don’t stop at your jawline.
9. Using Hot Water to Clean Your Face
Using extremely hot water for washing and bathing your face, can be damaging. This is because, hot water removes all the oils present in your skin. As a result, the natural moisturisation is lost with it.
10. Not Getting Enough Sleep

Your skin needs enough sleep, to rejuvenate itself, and not getting enough number of hours can wreak havoc on your complexion.
