This has probably happened to you: some overhyped beauty product made your skin feel like the Sahara desert, and a so-called “moisturizing” face mask made it feel even drier than before. But it doesn’t mean that you have to get rid of every beauty product you have. Maybe all you have to do is change the way you use some of the products.
Bright Side is eager to tell you about the most popular beauty mistakes you might be making.
1. You use wipes to remove makeup every day.
Is there anything more convenient? You wipe makeup off and forget about it. But you can’t use wipes all the time: they don’t cleanse the skin well enough.
More than that, they’re made of a rough material that causes irritation and dries and stretches the skin. You should only use them when you don’t have access to water and a good cleanser. But for everyday care, you should use special foaming cleansers and gels.
2. You think that serums can be used on their own.
Serums should be applied before using a moisturizing cream. And it’s better to do it in the evening, especially if the serum contains retinol.
