Getting perfect skin and hair is not an impossible feat, thanks to the countless numbers of beauty products and treatments that can be found nowadays. However, achieving that perfect look is only half the job well done.
You need to take extra measures to remain beautiful in the long run. And that can be achieved to a great extent if you tend to ‘not follow’ a few tips mentioned below.
Dry Skin Completely Before Moisturising
Why You Should Not Follow This: Moisturizers tend to stick better to damp skin. And they remain that way for hours after your skin dries up. So after a shower, pat your skin lightly with a towel and apply a moisturiser to your skin to keep the latter smooth the day through.
Wear Eye Cream At Night
Why You Should Not Follow This: The skin under the eye happens to be one of the most sensitive areas in the body. And although wearing an eye cream can effectively remove dark circles or prevent wrinkles. However, keeping them on all night long can lead to puffy eyes in the morning. So make sure to wipe them off gently (with a cotton ball) at least 15 minutes after application.
Wash And Scrub Your Face Frequently To Reduce/Prevent Pimples
Why You Should Not Follow This: Repeated washing will make the skin on the face dry. This would make the body secrete more oil to counteract the dryness, a factor that would cause more acne. Scrubbing repeatedly would also cause the pores to open up and spread the infection to other parts of the face.
Instead of repeatedly washing your face with soap, wash it at the most 3 times a day with a good quality face wash. Choose a scrub that has round beads of the same size and use it just once a week to remove impurities from your face.
