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.
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.
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.
