Bad hygiene habits you didn’t know you had

1.You're using your phone on the toilet

It can be tempting to take your phone to the toilet and scroll on social media, but cell phones pick up lots of germs, which you will later bring to other areas

2.You're using Q-tips

Cleaning out excess earwax may seem like a good idea, but it often does more harm. The problem is that it creates further issues when the earwax is pushed down the ear canal. 

3.You're washing your hair every day

Your scalp produces natural oils that are important to healthy and shiny hair, and when you shampoo it gets rid of dirt and excess oil.

4.Never washing your hair

Neglecting to wash your hair is really bad, too. Not only will the scalp start to smell, bacteria will  eventually clog your hair follicles, which can lead to an infection.

5.eyelash extensions

Eyelash extensions can be bad news if you don't care for them properly. There are varying degrees of toxicity when the glues get into the eye, and it can lead to vision impairment.

6.Not washing your hands often

Washing our hands is important to keep us healthy and to reduce the spread of illness. Remember to wash your hands often.

7.You're sharing your razor

Sharing razors is a terrible idea, as it can spread skin infections like staph, and in worst case scenarios it can transmit viruses like hepatitis and HIV.

8.Inadequate tooth brushing

It's easy to be sloppy when it comes to brushing, especially early in the morning when you're half asleep.  make sure that you brush for a full two minutes twice a day.

9.You sleep with your contact lenses

Sleeping with your contact lenses can cause eye irritation. But in worst case scenarios it can lead to a corneal abrasion or infection.

10.Keeping your toothbrush near the toilet

 you're putting yourself at risk of some cross-contamination. This is caused by an invisible cloud of microscopic particles when the toilet is flushed.
