Biggest Anti Aging Mistakes

In this segment, Dr. Oz shares his biggest anti-aging and food mistakes. Many of these things are seemingly innocent, but can wreck havoc on you.

Anti-Aging Mistake 1: Washing Your Face in the Morning

Many of us do it. In fact, 90% of the audience does it. Dr. Oz says washing your face in the morning can strip it of important oils your skin needs throughout the day. This can leave it dull and dry. He recommends washing your face at night to keep your skin healthy.

Anti-Aging Mistake 2: Neglecting Your Neck

When we apply moisturizers and other creams to the face, we often forget the neck, which is just as important. Dr. Oz says you don’t need to purchase separate products for the face and neck. All you need to do is apply the same product all the way down your neck, too.

Anti-Aging Mistake 3: Brushing Your Hair While it’s Wet

Brushing your hair while it’s wet is more likely to cause damage because the strands are more fragile. To keep your mane looking healthy and strong, wait until your hair is dry before you brush it.

Food Mistake 1: Licking the Peanut Butter Off the Knife

After you finish making the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it’s tempting to lick the peanut butter off the knife. The¬†problem¬†with this is, there’s an average of about 80 calories on that knife! Don’t think it adds up? If you did that every day for a year, you’d end up eight pounds heavier!

Food Mistake 2: Eating the Crumbs at the Bottom of the Bag

If you get to the crumbs at the bottom of a bag, that’s an additional 70 calories! Do this twice a week every week for a year, and you’ll end up two pounds heavier.

Food Mistake 3: Eating the Last Bit of Mac and Cheese

If you eat the last bit of mac and cheese that’s stuck to the pan, that’s an extra 50 calories. If you do this every time you make the dish for your family, let’s say twice a week, then that’s an extra 1.5 pounds in a year.

Combine all of these food mistakes, and you’ll end up 12 pounds heavier in a year!

If you commit any of these food mistakes, you should cut calories back elsewhere in your diet to compensate.
