- Forgetting to wash our brushes. Everyday we use makeup brushes but if we don’t wash them regularly, the build up from the makeup and the dead skin cells make it more appealing to bacteria. This can cause more spots!
Fix this by washing any makeup brushes you use every couple of weeks at least. Baby shampoo is ideal to wash brushes with. Simply rinse them with warm water, rub the shampoo in gently and then rinse again thoroughly. It’s best to leave them on a towel overnight so they are dry by the next morning and ready to use!
- Not using heat protection. When curling, straightening or using a hairdryer without heat protection you’re damaging your hair.
To combat this, invest in a good heat protection spray. I use the TRESemme Heat Defense Spray.
- Using too much conditioner. Your hair can only absorb so much and using too much conditioner can make hair look lifeless.
Use around about a 50p sized blob for long hair and try to avoid the top of your head.
- Biting/Licking your lips. This ends up with
your lips feeling drier than they did before.
Use a lip balm to heal your dry lips. I would recommend the Vaseline lip balms or the Carmex lip balms. If you fancy a bit of colour, Maybelline’s ‘Baby Lips’ Lip Balm has a range of colours to choose from whilst stopping lips from being dry.
- Sleeping with your makeup on. This clogs pores which triggers spots.
Always use a cleanser to remove makeup at night times but keep a pack of face wipes around, for different circumstances and emergencies.
