Well, co – incidence but theme of today could be ‘Break’. We have talked about reasons for taking a break from daily routine… then what about beauty routine? Are we supposed to take a break from our beauty routine as well and adapt the new way of pampering our beauty? Let’s find out;
Most often, it’s the pitfalls that bring one's regimen to a screaming halt. Redness, itching, and unusual onset of rashes are all possible symptoms that something is amiss. Your skin might not tolerate a product anymore, or, more likely, your beauty products stopped playing nice with each other. On the other hand, you may be having a serious beauty-product overdose; with so many changes in the skincare, many women are using products that are redundant.
If you're ready to break up with your beauty routine — it's temporary, we swear — here's how to save face and take a break.
When we see bubbles in our cleanser, we think of clean skin, but it can also mean dry and tight skin. Soap is not your friend. If your face feels so tight after you wash it that you have to layer gobs of moisturizer on it, you are probably stripping your skin and adding to the aging process.
Remember, your face is your canvas, massage your cleanser on your skin gently and always in upward strokes. Rinse with tepid water — two parts cold to one part hot — and apply your skin care regimen.
Some of us have red splotchy areas on our faces that have no reason to be there. First, consider if one of your products is causing the problem. If not, look for products that contain skin redness reducers. After you apply this redness reducing treatment, then apply your cover-up. There are so many cover-ups available to you — it’s just all about what you like whether it is a stick form, a brush form or a nude base in a pot. Dab your concealer to those red areas and watch them disappear.
Here are some tips for your beautiful Skin to appear more ‘Good’;
In the morning, a splash of lukewarm water is all you need (we find it's great for removing excess oils from your nightly moisturizing). Never wash your face with hot or cold water (both can cause broken capillaries). Also be careful about overcleansing skin, see signs you are overcleansing your skin.
Some people swear by toners, but many beauty experts do not claim, Toners are meant to remove all remaining traces of oil, makeup and dirt, but a good cleanser should do this. I firmly believe it's up to you. If you like the way your skin feels with a toner. Buy it. Use it. Enjoy it.
Some beauty experts strongly recommend eye creams. Why? The skin around the eye contains no fatty tissue and is therefore very thin and susceptible to wrinkles. Special eye creams are formulated to "thicken" this area. Yet other experts (including the beauty editors of Allure in their new book) claim your daily lotion works around the eyes just as well.
Move ahead for ‘more’ beautiful you!
