What do you think the worst female health habits are?

From working out to healthy diets and Spanx, we’re always making an effort to look our best.

Heck, we even spend a fortune on face creams and makeup every year.

That doesn’t mean we’re looking after ourselves, though… Here are the top female health habits that we really need to stop!

1. Heel Hype…

When was the last time you wore heels?

Last night?

More of us than ever are choosing to wear heels on a daily basis, and it’s bad news for our health.

While we’re all imagining looking like Victoria Beckham, we’re actually causing havoc for our posture, putting pressure on our joints and increasing our risk of arthritis, hammer toes, back pain and tendon injuries.

That’s before heel related injuries are taken into account, too.

For best results, limit your heels to 1.5 inches during the day, and don’t wear heels without insoles.

Give your feet some downtime, too – you can get some supercute flats these days!

This is one of the key female health habits to kick to the curb this year!

2. Makeup Mistakes…

We spend hundreds of dollars on our makeup each year, so it’s no surprise that we want to get maximum wear out of it… but sleeping in makeup is a bad idea.

Along with all the oil and dirt that naturally accumulates on skin during the day, leaving makeup there is a quick route to clogged pores, spots and congested skin.

It’s a leading cause of eye irritation, infection and bloodshot eyes.2

Ew.

3. Lighten Your Load…

When was the last time you weighed your handbag?

I’m serious.

Random weighings at train stations have shown that women tend to carry super-heavy bags with them, and they don’t even realize how heavy they are.

The average women hauls around a few pounds of extra weight on their shoulders each day, and while you might not be feeling the pain right now, it can lead to serious back and neck problems.

Give it a rest by switching to a smaller bag and getting rid of non-essential items.
