However, some your habits might actually be causing more harm then good, as there are a number of common beauty mistakes that can actually age your skin. Something might help you look good today, but in 10 years, you’ll begin to see the damage. What you choose to do with your skin and your overall look is of course totally your choice, but it can’t hurt to be armed with information so you can cut out any beauty habits that are unintentionally wreaking havoc on your skin.
