No one teaches us how to look after our skin or apply makeup properly while we are at school. We learn through watching others, exploring, and observing YouTube videos. It is only natural, therefore, that we would pick up some bad habits along the way. More often than not, we don’t even realise we are making any beauty sins. With that in mind, read on to discover some of the beauty and skincare sins that most people are making today so that you can stop making them.
Waiting too long to put your beauty products on – Once you have cleansed your skin, you should apply whatever products you use, be it moisturiser, eye cream, serum, or toner. This is important because your skin will be damp and your pores will be open, ensuring they receive the goodness you are giving them.
Putting on too much makeup – Nothing looks worse than a face caked with makeup. You may think that applying more and more foundation until you get a smooth finish is the best approach. Not only will you cause serious damage to your skin, but also it doesn’t look too good either. Plus, once the makeup starts to peel off, you will have a serious problem on your hands.
Overlooking the importance of organic products – A lot of people view natural beauty products as an expensive solution. In fact, you can easily find organic products at affordable prices today. Plus, it’s well worth a bit of extra money if need be. Why? Well, beauty products that are not organic contain chemicals in them, even facial washes and so-called ‘skincare’ products. These chemicals strip the skin of the much-needed moisture, which completely reverses the whole purpose of using them. Instead, organic beauty products ensure your skin gets all of the good stuff it needs. This organic makeup guide from soundbodylife.com will give you all of the information you need. Look at the ingredients contained in a beauty product before buying it. It is important to know exactly what you are putting on your skin.
Washing your hair too much – A lot of people think that washing their hair once a day is a good thing. In fact, this could be detrimental to achieving a fabulous mane, especially if you have thick hair. It could leave you with dry ends, as it strips your hair of moisture. The best thing to do is wash your hair every two days with a revitalising shampoo.
Applying foundation to dry skin – It does not matter how creamy your foundation appears to be or how amazing it says it is on the box, it is not going to conceal skin that is flaky and dry. If you do have dry skin, you should moisturise it both in the day and again in the evening. Failure to do this will only highlight your dry skin further, as it is going to make you look older and more tired. Everyone has a different skin type; it is simply about following the right routine for you.
