Here’s a small list of simple beauty mistakes you must avoid. There are plenty of skin care dont’s you need to be mindful of, but these little mistakes can make a huge difference in your appearance!
1. Sleeping in your makeup
Had a great night out with the girls and one too many cosmos? You get home and all you want to do is go to sleep, so you wake up the next morning with lipstick smeared on your pillow and a faded smokey eye from the night before. Leaving makeup on your face overnight traps in dirt from the day and clogs pores. We need to wash our faces every night to prepare for the next day and keep a healthy glow. To make cleansing a little easier, use Yes To Cucumbers- Natural Glow Facial Towlettes. These towelettes are biodegradable and gently remove makeup. Quick and easy!
2. Over exfoliating
We read about it everywhere. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! Exfoliating is great! Exfoliating IS great. Your skin needs extra help getting rid of dead skin cells, but don’t overdo it! Too much exfoliating can lead to irritation and inflammation plus exacerbate acne.
3. Skimping on sleep!
We all are familiar with the phrase “Get your beauty sleep.” What you may not know is that your skin actually repairs itself at night; it cannot continue this process if you’re not giving it the quality time it needs. Get some Zzzs for your sanity, and remember you skin needs it too.
4. Hanging on to old beauty products
It is very easy for bacteria to build up over time, especially if you frequently apply your makeup with your finger or sponges. Change your foundation every 6 months and your mascaras and eyeliner every 3 months.
