Help, I Can't Stop Touching My Face

Help, I Can't Stop Touching My Face By Barbies Beauty Bits

Yes, we are all seeing this everywhere, with the Coronavirus, DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE! To some, it is common sense. Others, although they think they are practicing the "do not touch," this touching action is either habitual or subconscious and they do not realize they are doing it. So for these people, how the heck can they stop touching their face?

Now before I get into that, I am going to address this action of touching your face, which primarily is referring to your mucous membranes (eyes, mouth, and nose).  These membranes are vulnerable as they are wet and porous, allowing dangerous germs to enter the body quickly. But since I am not a medical professional, please refer to the CDC for more advice.

Try to be mindful of when you are touching your face and stop.  Unfortunately, this is easier said than done, as some do not realize they are doing this, and for others, it can be downright bothersome. Think about it, if someone tells you a story about a pink car they saw that was so ridiculous, and for the rest of the day everywhere you go you see pink.

The same goes with this awareness of not touching your face, as now you seem to have an itch, a bug flies up your nose, you get something in your eye. Or worse, now that you can't do something, you get the urge to do it! But whatever you do, DO NOT ignore the urge, instead imply another competing behavior, which we discuss later in this post. 

  Triggers That Cause Us To Touch Our Faces By Barbies Beauty Bits
Triggers That Cause Us To Touch Our Faces

A friend of mine touches his face all the time, and it would drive me nuts, and this is before the Coronavirus outbreak. He would rub his hands very quickly up and down his face (exactly as in the picture). I would say something to him, he would look at me like, what are you talking about as he was not even aware he was doing it.

Some other triggers to be aware of.
  • You get a hair in your face and wipe it away from your eyes
  • You are a nail bitter
  • You pick your nose
  • Play with your hair (I am guilty of this)
  • Twirl your mustache
  • Relational
  • Nervous Tic
  • Stressed
  • You wear glasses
  • Face picker

Top 3 Ways To Break Those Bad Habits Of Touching Your Face
Like any bad habit, a form of redirecting those efforts can help, see some of our suggestions.

The Rubber Band Technique

This technique is when you wrap a rubber band around your wrist, and next time you catch yourself rubbing your face, biting your nails, etc. lift the rubber band and make it snap against your wrist.

Now that a lot of us are working from home, adding a sticky note to your computer NOT to TOUCH your face can be helpful, maybe even an alarm on your phone, also a google calendar reminder.

If you are quarantining yourself in your home with others, ask one of them to point out when you are touching your face. And of course, offer the same for them.

Preventive Measures
While the above are some ways to help you alleviate yourself from touching your face. Do not forget about those other preventive measures that can reduce your risks of getting sick. Like washing your hands properly, washing hands before and after going to the bathroom, eating, cooking, touching shared surfaces and objects in your home, even something as simple as a bottle of wine. And of course, use sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol.
The bottom line is for us to be VERY aware, and when we are aware, we can make changes, reprogram, and improve our actions.

Your Diet
Calories in and calories out are essential. However, I do not want you to confuse the word diet with dieting. Instead, imagine a healthier life focused on nutrition, knowledge, and with the right mindset.

To me, when I focus on the word dieting, it is restrictive, short-lived with an outcome based on losing weight. But when I think of healthy eating, I think of a lifestyle choice, choosing high-quality foods that can nourish the body, mind, and soul; while maintaining a healthy weight with a focus on nutrition and self-care, not self-control.

With that being said, there are some things you should be considering when it comes to creating a nutritional plan. For instance...
  • Portion control.
  • Enjoy foods high in antioxidants: Leafy Greens, Vegetables, Berries, Nuts, Whole Grains, and Fish.
  • Instead of grabbing those prepackaged foods between work and life that contain too many reļ¬ned ingredients enjoy foods that are rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids.
  • Create prepared meals you can eat throughout the week and take to work with you.
  • Dining out? Share the meal.
  • Have a realistic plan you can follow and enjoy.
The importance of eating breakfast for weightloss by barbies beauty bits

Eating Breakfast
While all meals are important, breakfast sets the day for success or failure. This is why having breakfast is a must, and skipping this meal is bad news. Studies have found that people who don’t eat breakfast tend to overeat during the day and have more overall body fat. Our body is drained of its fuel sources, due to overnight fasting and sleeping.  Hence to wake the body up, it must be refueled with food.

Also, research has shown that eating breakfast determines how well your metabolism functions for the rest of the day. The benefits of breakfast are just too good to pass up. See some of them below.
  • Helps you to perform and concentrate throughout the day.
  • It gives you energy.
  • It helps to keep blood sugar stabilized, which helps control your appetite and urges.
As busy people, there may seem to be no time for breakfast. However, breakfast can be as simple as a quick piece of fruit, protein, or a high fiber snack! Which brings me to my next tip, which is a snack between meals.

Review of belly crush yellow pea fiber snacks by barbies beauty bits

The Importance Of Snacking Between Meals
Yes, I said snacking. Unfortunately, the word snack has a bad rap. But, a healthy fiber snack between your meals, can give you energy while decreasing your hunger, helping you to keep from overeating at mealtime.

Snacks High In Fiber
One New Cool Diet Trend is yellow pea fiber snacks or pea fiber cookies! What the?? Yes, pea cookies, like these from Belly Crush for weight management! And the best part is they taste great, coming in two yummy flavors. (Oatmeal Hemp and Ginger Flax).

Aside from the great taste, these cookies remind me of homemade cookies. As they are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and deliver a burst of natural flavor with each bite! Plus...
  • Assists in maintaining a healthy body weight.
  • It helps decrease unhealthy fatty acids that are aligned with weight gain.
  • Promotes a healthy gut.
  • It lowers your LDL cholesterol.
  • Elevate ketone bodies that help to suppress appetite. 
  • And Much More!
Benefits of adding lemon to your water for weight loss by barbies beauty bits

Add Lemon Water To Your Diet
We’ve all heard it “Drink at least eight glasses a water a day,” while there is no magic number, the magic is that you have to drink plenty of water.

I am first to admit I am horrible at this, as I only drink when I am thirsty, which is not good. One fundamental way to increase your water intake is to add lemon to it.

Now that we've gone over our diet let's dive into some of the fun, cool fitness trends.  One of the reasons I like some of these is because lifting weights every day can be tedious. Hence tying in some fun physical activities can help us to stay on track.

The best Virtual Training apps by barbies beauty bits

Virtual Training
Having a personal trainer on your schedule with either a fitness app., program, or online trainer can be convenient and encouraging. Also, if you are a person who struggles with being consistent, lacks will power, or feels overwhelmed or “stuck” and just need help staying committed and focused on your goal, the virtual approach may be the way to go.

Red Light Therapy For Weight-loss by barbies Beauty bits

Red Light Therapy For Weight-loss
Sometimes exercise and eating healthy are not enough to reshape your body the way you want it.

But what if there was another way to get rid of some of that unwanted stubborn fat while toning? Well, there is with Red Light Therapy For Weight-loss. 

Many of you have heard of CoolSculpting, a procedure that cools fat cells to freezing temperatures that trigger their natural death. But the time involved, the number of sessions, risks of Coolsculpting gone bad, and let's not forget about the costs (which are determined on how many areas of your body need the treatment), can be an expensive reality check. 

That is why many people are now turning to advanced body fat loss options, like Red Light Therapy that can eradicate stubborn body fat quickly. There’s no freezing or bruising, and you could lose up to 2 dress sizes in 30 days!   

You mean, there is more? Well, yes, there is! Not tips but some discounts to give you a kickstart for 2020.

Top 5 Ways To Save Money On Your Beauty Products

Top 5 Ways To Save Money On Your Skincare Products By Barbies Beauty Bits

Top 5 Ways To Save Money On Your Beauty Products!
Do you, like most women, have a daily skincare routine, or if not daily, almost every day without fail? For some, it’s a simple cleansing and moisturizing, and for others, like myself, it’s much more extensive.

Whether you are a person who only focuses on skincare when you can or a die-hard everyday person like yours truly. One thing we all need to be taking into consideration is how much we are spending on our beauty products! Yes, for those skincare junkies like myself, this sounds like a question my boyfriend asks me! But in all seriousness, I do spend wisely!  This is why I am here today to share with you some practical ways you to can save on your daily skincare routine without losing your shine.

DIY Beauty Routine
Yes, beauties, don't be afraid to do it yourself. Now, this isn’t a suggestion that you get the chemistry set out and try to recreate every product that’s in your beauty arsenal. However, there are websites like Wellness Mama that can be an excellent source for some DIY natural beauty recipes.  This site has a plethora of information from DIY face scrubs and masks to providing details on which ingredients are best for you and why.

Never Go Without A Discount
Okay, so perhaps you’re not entirely willing to give up on your favorite brands for the homemade approach just yet. However, that doesn’t mean you should always, or ever, pay full price for your beauty and skincare products.

In today's technology, there are tons of online places that curate coupons, vouchers, and discount codes from just about every retailer. One of my favorite sites for saving money has a great selection of discounts on everything beauty from makeup and skincare to even Bath and Body Works Coupons for when you want to treat yourself to some spa day pampering!

Look For Recycling Deals From Beauty Brands
Aside from offering deals, beauty brands are always looking for ways to reward their loyal customers, especially those who are a little more sustainably minded. Many of these companies will even recycle your empty containers to help fight the waste of plastics and packaging rife in the cosmetic world. Some of them will also offer a little bonus for those who decide to recycle! Like a free item with your next purchase or some extra savings-now, how cool is that?

How cosmetic procedures can save you money in the long run by barbies beauty bits

Choose A Long-term Beauty Solution
Beauty treatments tend to be more expensive than beauty products. However, when you compare the long term effects, a cosmetic treatment might end up more cost-effective. This is one of the big reasons why some women opt for botox, laser resurfacing, or even fillers, as when it comes to looking youthful, these treatments can get you more bang for your buck than anti-aging cream, alone.

How to get free beauty products from brands by barbies beauty bits and influencers wanted

Get FREE Beauty Products
Sounds like a skincare junkies dream come, doesn't it? Well, it can be a reality as if you’re willing to try new brands (some of which you may never have heard of) there are plenty of influencer platforms out there that you can join, and get products in exchange for a review. You may even want to consider writing a blog or starting a Youtube channel to share your love of beauty.

So as you can see, feeling and looking great does not have to cost an arm and a leg! As the more you save on beauty products, the more you can get. Now that came from the skincare hoarder in me, sorry!

Until next time!
