Beauty Tips To Abide By
Hello all! It’s a new week, and I’m back with a brand new beauty post. Today’s is a personal stash of beauty rules that should be a part of everyone’s routine, and knowing them has made my life a hell of a lot easier. With everything from hair care, skin care, and make-up tips to beat the band, and not to toot my own horn, but I think there’s something that everyone can learn from this post. Because that’s why we’re all here, riiiight?
– When moisturising your face, also do so on your neck. Your later years will thank you for it.
– Clean your make-up brushes once a week. As tedious a job as it may seem, it’s worth it for the health of your skin and quality of make-up application.
– Exfoliate your skin twice a week. It creates a healthy glow that no highlight can achieve, and clears away dead skin cells, win win.
– Use coconut oil as a hair mask/facial cleanser/make-up remover. This product can do no wrong!
– Trim your hair every six to eight weeks, even if you’re trying to grow it long. Split ends are the worse route to try to avoid, trust me.
– If you’re unsure how to shape your eyebrows, get them done professionally once. Then you can pluck away the re-growth from the shape they’ve created, while still having those brows on fleeeek!
– Always use a heat protectant when using heated styling tools on your hair.
– Double cleanse when you’ve been wearing make-up. Round one takes off make-up, and round two ensures that your skin has actually been cleaned.
– Pluck your eyebrows after a warm shower/bath – it’ll be a lot less painful, trust me.
– Let spots run their course, don’t pick at/try to burst them. Aggravation can lead to infection/scarring.
– Don’t brush your hair when it’s wet. Wet hair is more prone to stretching, which means it can split/snap off.
– Avoid the spread of bacteria by only touching your face when it’s necessary, washing your hands before cleansing, and changing your pillow cases regularly.
– Open your mouth when applying mascara to avoid smudging. I don’t know why this works, but it does!
– Achieve loose, beachy waves with no damage by plaiting damp hair, and sleeping on it.
– When contouring, blend upwards, not down. We want those cheekbones good and high, not shadowy and sunken.
– Use your hair dryer on your eyelash curler before curling – this will help to keep the curl for longer.
– When applying powder, dab pointedly with the brush, don’t rub – the rubbing motion just drags your foundation around your face, instead of setting it.
– Fight back against crunchy tips by applying a hair oil or leave-in conditioner to the ends of your hair after washing, to bring back moisture and avoid split ends.
Do you have any beauty rules you think I should abide by?
