There are times when we are in hurry or just too tired to go through detailed beauty rituals. While taking the simple way out is okay sometimes, but certain shortcuts are better not to commit.
I have seen many teenagers sleeping with their eye makeup (even I used to do it before). But it’s not good for skin because when you forget to wash your face, your skin has the possibility to marinate in a day’s worth of fragments and oil overnight. Moreover our skin is unable to breathe, revive tissue, exfoliate dead surface cells and cure itself.
Not to forget eye makeup overnight can also lead to an eye infection, so it’s better to avoid sleeping with makeup. If you don’t have much time use makeup remover wipes and then you’re ready to have a “Goodnight” sleep.
Do u remember when you gave your beauty tools a thorough cleaning? Makeup brushes and other tools are propagation grounds for bacteria so get in the habit of washing them every week to avoid infecting your skin with bacteria and dust. Product build up in the brushes can make the situation worsen. So, better wash your beauty tools every week.. yes every week.
Most girls blow-dry their wet hair on the highest temperature with the intention of speeding things up but what you are instead doing is draining your hair off moisture and making it frizzy. Plus, wet hairs take longer time to dry and thus it makes us use the drier more. It’s better to first remove all the water from hair, then dry your hair with towel or let it air dry for some time, after apply a heat protector and then you can blow dry. Yes, I know it’ll take longer but your hairs will thank you for this!
Make Up on Make Up:
You have a date with your boyfriend right after job but have had absolutely no time to beautify yourself so you just add some more makeup on the already applied makeup? And you think it’s a good idea? No it’s terrible idea. Adding foundation on your existing foundation can make your face appear loaded with lots of makeup. It will also clog pores and invite a pimple or two (or three).
Some other bad habits to avoid:
- Washing face with hot water as high temperature can break capillaries on the face.
- Rubbing your eyes too much can cause skin to loosen and fine lines to form since there are no oil glands there.
- Drinking through straw can also be risky as repeated facial expressions, such as pursing your lips can cause fine lines around the area of your mouth.
Those were some of bad beauty shortcuts that can be risky for your skin. Did you spot any bad beauty shortcuts that you take on this list? Don’t let your skin suffer for just few minutes instead take time to do it right. Make your skincare a nice soothing and enjoyable habit so you’re not tempted to always speed through it!
