Perhaps you don’t have problematic skin, to begin with, but if you’re under-cleansing or over-cleansing, you could be putting yourself at risk of cystic acne, rosacea, or eczema. If you’re not sure about how to correctly cleanse your skin at the end of the day, read on to find out the best skincare routine practices you can easily incorporate at night. Use a pre-cleanse productAfter a long night out, you can’t simply wipe your makeup off your face and call it a day. You’re going to want to get rid of extra dirt and grime with an oil-based cleansing balm. Simply work it into your fingers, add a little water, and apply it all over your face. Use the right productsWashing your face twice a day with a barrier-friendly cleanser can effectively remove dirt without stripping away your natural oils and other good bacteria. Don’t overwash your faceBelieve it or not, washing your face more than 2 or 3 times a day can be detrimental to your skin. Stripping it of its natural oils can cause it to overproduce oils later on. If you went about your day without wearing makeup and slathered on only a little bit of sunscreen, you’re better off skipping the cleanser and simply washing with water. Even if your cleanser is the best face wash on the market, you’ll want to give your skin the occasional break from products you use religiously. Get the water to the right temperatureIf you’ve heard about how hot water opens your pores whereas cold water closes them, this is actually a myth. Pores don’t have muscles to open or close at all. Hot water may feel relaxing on the skin but can actually cause it to dry out and overproduce sebum. Sebum is an oil naturally produced by the body to keep it moisturized, but too much of it can cause you to break out. Use lukewarm water to wash your face. Don’t over-exfoliate Exfoliation is a great way to get rid of dead skin, but overdoing it can cause abrasions on your face. It can also lead to dehydration and inflammation, so limit your exfoliating to once or twice a week. Don’t rub your face dryWhen cleansing your face, pat—don’t rub. Rubbing can tug at your skin and damage its elastin, which can potentially lead to wrinkles, crow’s feet, or irritation. If you’re using a towel, be sure to designate a towel that you use exclusively on your face to prevent bacteria transfer. Moisturize regularlyTo allow your skin to best absorb your moisturizing products, apply them right after you wash your face. Waiting until your face is completely dry to apply serums and treatment products can keep the product from sinking into your skin and leave you feeling greasy. Don’t spend a fortune on cleanser The best skincare products out there will sometimes be a little costly, but you don’t have to shell out a fortune to find one that works for you. Stick to one that is simple and contains natural ingredients that can provide your skin with long-term benefits. Conclusion:When shopping for the right cleansers, serums, and moisturizers, it can be tempting to purchase those with the highest price tag. After all, you’ll be getting what you pay for right? This isn’t always the case, so get to know your skin before you go on a shopping spree, and be sure you’re already incorporating a healthy routine into your daily regimen.

Create A Subtle Cat Eye Using Lash Extensions💕
Create A Subtle Cat Eye Using Lash Extensions💕
This post is dedicated to those of you who don’t want or can’t use a lash strip! If you have a subtle eyeshadow look, a great way to enhance your natural eyeshape is to use individual lash extensions! It’ll give you that your lash but better look and create a charming “atmosphere” around the eye. You don’t have to be a lash artist to do it. All you need is some classic lash glue and individual lashes from a place like LASHIFY - AMPLIFY GOSSAMER LASHES For this eyelook, I created a Demi lash towards the outer corner. A Demi lash is essentially a lash that is about 1/3rd long of a normal strip lash. Starting for the end of the outer corner I used three individual lashes beginning with a 14mm size at the outermost corner. Next would be a 12mm and a finally a 10mm. You can see the difference it makes in the first photo vs the second. In the second photo, I just have mascara, whereas the first photo I have the 3 individual lashes! Tips: 1. Curl and put on your mascara BEFORE you put on the individual lashes. The mascara will provide a sturdy base for the individual lashes to attach to. 2. Use a tweezer to assist with your application and attach the lash to your lash line. DO NOT put it directly on the waterline because this will cause irritation. You do want to be close to it though! 3. I use the lash glue from house of lashes. It’s comfortable and not clumpy. Place the glue on the individual lash like you would normally would on a strip lash. You only need A LITTLE bit of glue. Placing too much will cause difficulty in sticking and it’ll get all over your lashes. Another glue you could use or try is the DUO - DUO Brush-on Adhesive Enjoy your flirty “natural” lashes 💕😄
Hair waver Barrel Size comparison
Hair waver Barrel Size comparison
I've been seeing a lot of the hair waver trend, and wanted to try it all out. Upon researching different brands, I got really overwhelmed with the different barrel sizes. I decided to buy 3 barrel sizes to compare and see if there's actually a significant difference. DISCLAIMER: I've purchased all these hot tools from Amazon, and I am not affiliated or sponsored by any brand or company. 1. 22mm barrel - In the pictures, I'm wearing a red shirt. First picture is my hair freshly waved. Second pic, I brushed the waves out. Third, is a frontal view of the waves. These waves are definitely tighter than what I would like. It reminds me of how my hair would look if I had braided them while damp and slept on them overnight. It was cute, but I don't think it looked best on my mid-length hair. 2. 25mm - In these series of pictures, I'm wearing a graphic Looney Toons shirt. This barrel size seems the most popular. Insert Name Here, a hair extension company, sells a 25mm tool. They market it as the perfect barrel size, and I agree. I definitely like this barrel size better than the 22mm - it seems more natural. Although I did not purchase my waver from INH, I imagine it would give similar results. INSERT NAME Here - The Waver[] 3. 32mm - In these series of pics, I'm wearing a black shirt. This barrel size is my favorite. I think it compliments my hair length the best, and I think it would be cute on any hair length for that matter. It is the most natural waves, but also it just looks more uniform than the smaller barrels. With smaller barrels, there's more variance in how you position your waves, but with bigger barrels, there's less room to vary and it all looks pretty much the same - which I like. Love this size!!! VERDICT: I guess it depends on what look you're trying to achieve. Some people like tighter and messier waves, and some people like bigger and neater waves. For me, I like the look of the bigger barrels. I returned the 22mm waver, and kept the other two wavers. Which one do you guys prefer?
FAVORITE MAKEUP REMOVER
FAVORITE MAKEUP REMOVER
@biore makeup removing cleansing oil (7.8 oz) I’ve used this for years and it never fails me. I have sensitive, combination skin but mostly on the dry side. I also suffer from the occasional eczema flare ups but this remover has never triggered it. It’s awesome for melting off anything from grease paints, (which are alcohol or wax based AKA waterproof) to water-activated face paints. I feel like it’s really gentle around the eyes. APPLICATION: - use either reusable cotton pad or towel to press the remover on the eye area and wait for it to melt the makeup off, then wash - you can also use it directly on skin (which is how I prefer to do it because I paint my entire face), wait for it to melt the makeup, then wash with another cleanser
Mermaid Polish🧜‍♀️ Same Brand Dupe?
Mermaid Polish🧜‍♀️ Same Brand Dupe?
Sally Hansen - Color Therapy Nail Polish Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri X Jelly Belly Nail Polish Similarities: - Both are from Sally Hansen which is famous for their polishes and nail products - Both have two-color tones - Both have blue base Differences - Sally Hansen Salon Manicure has 14.7ml (0.5 oz) comparing to Sally Hansen insta-dry Matte 9.17 ml (0.3 oz) - Salon Manicure is $15 CAD vs Insta-dry Matte $8 CAD (almost double the other) - The Salon Manicure does appear to be more hollow, when actually apply it, you can tell that this one is super jampacked with holo pigment - After two layers, the salon manicure series is perfect set and ready to finish ( actually one layer is good enough, if you do want extra hallow pigment, you can go with a second layer) but the insta-dry matte series, it is not as clear as the other, and you actually need a third layer to get the perfect finish. - The formula is thicker in Salon Manicure, but the consistency is very good and fluid. And it doesnt dragging the brush. It floats super nicely across the nail. - My opinion - I personally really love the Salon Manicure. Although both polish are from Sally Hansen, this one definitely wins over the other in every area. I love the fact that you can see the formula is a two-toned color, you can actually see the color shifting when turning it into different angles. And it appears the same on your nails. It has a perfect combination of blue and purple with purple pearl shimmer to keep the nail going strong.
