Makeup is one thing that can either make or break our faces. The meaning behind that statement is that having bad makeup habits can cause a lot of damage to our faces. As I always say, I’m not a beauty guru but I do a lot of reading. I’ve read that maintaining a flawless face with and without makeup is determined by how we use it. If you want your makeup to enhance your beauty and not cause lots of pimples, it’s best to stop the habits I’m about to tell you right now! They are actually habits that dermatologists state are a no no. We change our clothes and shoes often but most times fail to change our bad makeup habits. Continue reading to find out the makeup habits you need to quit right now.
1. Falling Asleep With Makeup On
Yes, I know you’re thinking to yourself dang I do that all the time. Yup, I know it happens to the best of us. It happens to me too! We’re super tired and just can’t be bothered and just decide to fall asleep with a full face of makeup on. Guess what though, we won’t be too happy when that huge pimple greets us “hello” in the morning. Sleeping with makeup on causes tons of breakouts. It also leaves makeup residue on our sheets and pillow cases. Dermatologists say that the quickest way to remove makeup before bed is to simply use makeup wipes such as the Neutrogena Makeup Remover cleansing towelettes
2. Going Months without Replacing Your Mascara
Beauty experts state that mascara has a life span of 3 months. So if you are still using the same old mascara for six months straight, it’s highly likely that it’s time to toss it in the trash. I definitely need to toss mine too! Using mascara for an excessive amount of time(longer than its life span) can lead bacteria to accumulate and cause an eye infection say many beauty gurus out there . Replacing your mascara is the best option once your near approaching the 3-month mark. My all time favorite mascara is the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
3. Never Washing Your Makeup Brushes
Just like you have to wash your clothes regularly and your hair due to the accumulation of dust and dirt so too should you wash your makeup brushes regularly. I’m so guilty of this! After using makeup brushes for a while the makeup starts to clump together on the brush and causes it to become stiff. Dermatologists advise washing your makeup brushes at least once a month. Using a baby shampoo, such as my favorite, Johnson and Johnson Baby Shampoo is a quick and easy way to get your makeup brushes squeaky clean.
I think we all have some bad makeup habits we need to work on.
