mistakes in face and hair care

Each of us some­times sins with dif­fer­ent meth­ods of beau­ty, which only spoil every­thing. And we allow them not from mali­cious intent, they say, I want my whole face to be cov­ered with acne, but because of lazi­ness, absent-mind­ed­ness and igno­rance.

In our new arti­cle, we will talk about all the embar­rass­ing mis­takes in self-care that each of us has made at least once.


There are many more mis­takes in facial skin care than oth­ers, because it is the face that we pay spe­cial atten­tion to. What are the ter­ri­bly embar­rass­ing facial mis­takes we make?

Rarely change pillowcases

Bed­ding should be washed once a week, but the pil­low­case should be changed every oth­er day, and this is not an inven­tion of some crazy clean. In fact, it is the pil­low­case that can cause unpleas­ant rash­es on the face, because it is most exposed to pol­lu­tion. Get into the habit of reg­u­lar­ly chang­ing your pil­low­case and you will for­get about acne for a long time.

Rarely wash your makeup brushes

Make­up brush­es need to be washed as often as pos­si­ble — and this has been proven by every­one! The fact is that after apply­ing cos­met­ics, bac­te­ria remain on them and, hav­ing received a nutri­ent medi­um, they begin to active­ly mul­ti­ply there. Reap­pli­ca­tion of make­up with a dirty brush is like a cruise for such bac­te­ria to the islands of par­adise. And by par­adise islands, we mean exact­ly your face. If you don’t want bac­te­ria to set­tle on your face, wash your brush­es twice a week with antibac­te­r­i­al soap. And brush­es for pow­der and foun­da­tion — even more often.


Not using night cream

Let­ting your skin rest is a good idea, but what it usu­al­ly means by rest is not what you think it is. A big mis­take is not apply­ing night cream or doing it wrong. Apply the night cream two hours before bed, not at bed­time, and in the morn­ing you can ful­ly enjoy fresh and soft skin.

Remove make-up with facial cleanser

To remove make­up, you need to use a spe­cial tool, oth­er­wise there will be no sense in such cleans­ing. Do not be stingy and buy a good make­up remover, and first use it, and only then wash your face with a gel.

It’s a bad idea to remove make­up only with a cleans­ing gel, even if it’s a spe­cial one. The best recipe for per­fect skin cleans­ing is to first use a hydrophilic oil, then a facial wash, and final­ly wipe the skin with a ton­ic. You’ll see: after a week of such care, your skin will thank you very much.

Don’t use facial toner

Ton­ic is often under­es­ti­mat­ed, and for good rea­son. In fact, this lit­tle thing should be in every girl’s make­up bag. And we’re not talk­ing about gin and ton­ic.

After wash­ing or inten­sive cleans­ing, it is the ton­ic that helps to mois­tur­ize the skin and restore the nat­ur­al pH bal­ance. And it also helps to cleanse the skin of micropar­ti­cles of fat and dirt.

care mistakes

Too much. A lot of. Scrubs.

Cleans­ing is good, but not when you do it every night with a scrub. Of course, after inten­sive exfo­li­a­tion, the skin feels soft and silky, but in fact, it suf­fers a lot. To cleanse the skin of dead cells, use an acid peel select­ed per­son­al­ly for you, and only once a week. This is enough for the skin.

Makeup after procedures

In no case should you apply make­up after inten­sive pro­ce­dures: exfo­li­a­tion, cleans­ing pores, steam­ing and pluck­ing eye­brows. The skin is still under stress, per­haps there are micro­c­racks and scratch­es, and you decid­ed to fill them with foun­da­tion? Not the most log­i­cal solu­tion that can cause inflam­ma­tion.

Touching your face unnecessarily

Every­one sins with this: we acci­den­tal­ly run our fin­gers along the cheek, remov­ing a hair or an invis­i­ble cob­web, we prop our face with our palm when we are bored, and some­times we scratch it or rub our eyes. Nev­er touch your face with unwashed hands. The skin of the face is so del­i­cate and sen­si­tive that it will cer­tain­ly respond to such an encroach­ment.

Sleep in cosmetics

From the very first day when we start to make up, moth­ers say: do not go to bed in cos­met­ics! And not just like that. Skin cleans­ing is an impor­tant step that helps to pre­serve its youth and health for a long time. Be sure to take off your make­up when you go to bed, even if you are very tired.

powdering your face

No need to “pow­der the nose” with pow­der every time. Even if it is light, with tea tree extract or uni­corn horn. You can get rid of the oily sheen that spoils your make­up with the help of mat­ting wipes: your make­up is in order, and your skin is not in dan­ger.

hair care


Gor­geous hair is the dream of any girl, but some­times in the pur­suit of the beau­ty of hair, we make mis­takes that only dis­fig­ure them. Every­one knows that you can not comb wet hair or do it too aggres­sive­ly. But do you know how to use sham­poo, con­di­tion­er, balm and mask? But in their use lie the main beau­ty mis­takes.

How to use the shampoo

Wet your hair well with warm water, then apply the sham­poo to your scalp. Spread the foam all over the hair and mas­sage for about a minute. This is nec­es­sary in order for the blood to rush to the scalp. Rinse off the lush foam and apply a small por­tion of sham­poo again.

How to properly apply conditioner

First wring out the hair along the entire length, and only then apply con­di­tion­er to them. Do not rinse imme­di­ate­ly, but hold for 1–3 min­utes.

How to use a hair mask correctly

The nour­ish­ing mask should be applied to wet hair and even­ly dis­trib­uted. Hold until absorbed, and then rinse thor­ough­ly with warm water.

As you can see, the main thing is to keep the hair care prod­ucts on your hair for a while.

By the way, with our pro­mo­tion­al codes you can save on care prod­ucts. For exam­ple, accord­ing to our dis­counts in the Wat­sons store you can buy every­thing you need and save.
