1. Addicted to coffee - Coffee is a fantastic perk me-up; but having too much has been said to cause a variety of diseases. Also coffee's main component caffeine, is a known diuretic, meaning that its main function is to basically drain fluid from your system. and we know lack of fluids can be bad to our skin.

3. Lack of sleep - We all know there are many factors why we experience the lack of sleep and sometimes we don't pay attention to what it can cause to us. One of it is for our skin, it brings out dark under eye circles, and results in a blotchy complexion the morning after.
