If you are working in an office, mall, cafe, or any work that requires you to have makeup on a daily basis, it can be stressful for your skin. Mascara, lipstick, blush, foundation, and eyeliner are beauty products that are a necessity for many women around the world. Makeup enhances your features but if it’s not used right or your habits were wrong you can be harming your skin’s health for greater damage and imperfection. Unhealthy makeup habits can cause acne, aging, and oiliness or dryness
Take care of your skin’s health as early stage as possible and follow these best makeup habits we prepared for you:
Wash your face every night
I know it can be hard after a long tiring day at work to motivate yourself to do a routine washing your face at night but do your skin the ultimate favor by removing all your makeup, it’s a no-no to sleep with it even how great it looks on you. Sleeping with face makeup on can make your skin severely dry, acne-prone and even triggers wrinkles due to collagen breakdown. Use makeup remover and a facial cleanser that will work and no need for extras if you are too lazy and tired to do it.
Clean your brushes regularly
If you are a frequent makeup user it's the more you need to clean your makeup brushes regularly. I know it’s a time-consuming task but just imagine the scenario, you have great high-end makeups but the thing you used to apply that on your skin is full of dirt and germs and you keep on doing that every day. Do you want that? I bet no one would so schedule brush cleaning even once a month.
During winter you should do moisturize before makeup
Drying and exfoliation can be followed up with a deep moisturizing emollient in winters. Vitamin C moisturizers work really well. Let the moisturizer sit for at least 5 minutes so your skin can soak it in. Makeup applied on moisturized skin will last longer. If makeup is applied before the moisturizer has time to set, it will dilute the effect of the moisturizer. After this, apply a face primer with SPF.
Don’t share your or anyone else’s makeup
Sharing is not always caring, makeups are home for bacteria and you don’t want to share yours or get it from your friend’s lipstick or foundation. It may be convenient, but it won’t help your skin in the long run.
Those are some good habits that can help you get the healthy, glowing skin that you deserve. Developing these routines will help create a safe environment for your skin. Even though these are simple tips, they’ll help save you from unwanted acne, aging, and dry or oily skin. Start doing this as early as possible and you will notice the effect in no time!
