Five Common skincare mistakes to avoid

"Skincare should be according to skin type and the seasons"

Skincare is a tricky business. Common skincare mistakes can aggravate such problems as suntan, sunburn, dark patches, blackheads, pimples, acne, rash, dryness, or skin sensitivity. Skincare should be according to skin type and the seasons.

Here are a few mistakes you might have been making when it comes to skincare which is preventing you from getting that smooth and glossy skin you want.

Not wearing sunscreen daily:

The sun is your skin’s biggest enemy; it speeds up the aging process by contributing to fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dark spots, and even skin cancer.

That’s why applying sunscreen is an essential step in your skincare routine – regardless of your age – to prevent sun damage and keep your skin healthy and radiant for as long as possible.

Pimple popping:

Squeezing pimples and blackheads can allow dirt and bacteria to get into the skin and make matters even worse.

Besides increasing the odds of infection, popping your pimples can lead to permanent scarring. Scarring becomes an issue to deal with.

And scarring isn't something that goes away overnight.

Over exfoliating:

While exfoliation is a great way to remove the build-up of dead skin cells for smoother, brighter skin, over-exfoliation can be super damaging to the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

Avoid exfoliating scrubs with harsh particles that can tear and damage the skin.

Using too many products:

It’s important to understand how much of each skincare product you should use to get the most benefit without wasting it or irritating your skin unnecessarily.

Your skin could be oily and quite sticky because your skincare is just sitting on the surface, but overloading your skin can also result in dryness, irritation, and redness.

Just a handful of products and ingredients will do for most people with 'normal' to combination skin.

Touching your face too often:

Most people touch their face countless times per day; it’s a natural habit and also a common skincare mistake to avoid.

The hands carry germs and bacteria, conveying them to facial skin and leading to eruptive skin problems.

If there is acne, it can get aggravated if you keep touching your face.

5 Must have Women Appliances | 2021

18th September 2020
"Women have a tendency to be very conscious about how they look."

Women have a tendency to be very conscious about how they look. When we look around there are a lot of products and lots of companies that claim to increase your "beauty". Beauty is a state of mind but being presentable in your own sense doesn't have anything wrong. We have compiled a list of 5 such must-have appliances for women to help make you comfortable in your appearance:

Epilator

epilator

An epilator is an electrical device that is used for manually picking and pulling multiple hairs out at the same time to remove hair. Corded, battery, powered, rechargeable models of epilators come in. Battery-powered devices may be used under wet or dry environments. They may also come with multiple accessories, such as a smaller head to support epilate areas that are difficult to access or before exfoliation. Why use a razor that gives you instant irritation when you can just pluck the hairs that give you irritation? Epilator is one of the must-have because you can have silk-like smooth legs anytime you want.

Straightener

The hair straighteners, whether short or long, are the best cure for getting straight air every day at home. Most of us spend a lot of cash and time in the salon to get our hair fixed. But you can straight, curl, increase the volume of hair, and style your hair according to your requirements by investing in a hair straightener. Not only will the right hair straightener option last long, but it will also make your hair shinier and prettier. Straighteners are the solution for your wavy messy hair anytime anywhere.

Dryer

hair-dryer

A hairdryer is a must-have product for your arsenal, whether you like more length, waves, or a smooth and straight hairdo. While most hair dryers are meant to do the same thing, they are not made in the same manner. So choose wisely and choose what suits you the most and what do you need; simply a hairdryer or a hair styler. Not only can you get the perfect look quicker from high-quality hair dryers, but they will also cause less trouble for you in the long run.


Facial steamers

facial-steamers
Steam opens the lungs and succeeds in eliminating the buildup of debris for a better detox. It loosens blackheads also by widening the pores which makes them more likely to clear. It triggers action. The combination of warm steam and increased suddenness dilates the vessels of the blood and increases circulation. It is not the best idea, as fun as it can seem, to use a facial steamer every day. It will do more harm than good, itching your skin if you use it too often. So use it carefully and at home to get the ideal skin.

Wax heater

wax-heater
The wax heater is the system used to melt the wax and to make it ready for use at an appropriate temperature for you. It is used for the melting of both hard and soft wax. Hair development in the neck, hands, and underarms is not considered favorable and we are also willing to feel the pain involved with getting rid of the unnecessary hair in the arms, legs, and even ears. It may be used to heat up massive quantities of wax in just a few minutes and helps heat the wax to the desired uniform temperature.

What is your skin type? | REVIEWS

"Do you really have oily skin? Or is it combined skin?"

Skin is the biggest organ of your part and taking care of it sometimes is a huge task. Prior to implying various steps on taking care of your skin, you need to know what your skin type. You may put on heavy oils without really knowing your skin and may clog the beautiful pores suffocating them. Or, you may put on some heavy moisturizers that will reduce natural oil from your skin resulting in extra dryness. So, knowing your skin type is very essential. You need to understand your skin type in order to use the appropriate products to bring balance to your skin and make it healthy.

Every person's skin varies from each other. You may have dry skin but its level of dryness differs from any other person with dry skin. It's not possible to divide every skin type as it will create millions of types. So, basically, there are 3 types of skin i.e. Dry, Oily, and combination. Let's get to know them in brief.

How to know your skin type?

First of all, cleanse your face thoroughly with a mild cleanser and pat dry. Leave it for about 30 minutes without applying any other moisturizer, serums, and cream. After 30 minutes, if you have a shiny T-zone i.e. nose and forehead, you have a combined skin. And, if you get parched skin that feels tight and you face difficulty while smiling, you have dry skin. And, if you get a shine on your cheeks, and chin including your T-zone, then you have oily skin.

Skin-type

Dry Skin

Dry skin feels tight throughout the day. You may feel rough patches in your skin as they can be all flaky sometimes. People with dry skin face difficulties and pain in their faces when the skin folds. Dry skin is often caused due to genetics, environmental factors such as lifestyle & diet, hormonal changes, and climate; moreover, dehydration also causes dry skin- so, make sure you drink plenty of water to avoid any form of dryness. Also, it's better to avoid any form of alcoholic drinks and caffeine to have glowing skin. With daily exfoliation and moisturization, you can have a glowing face without any dry patches. If you exfoliate before moisturizing, then your skin can absorb moisture adequately.

Oily Skin

If you have shine on your entire face including nose, forehead, cheeks, and chin, then you probably have oily skin. Often when you wake up, your face will be all wet with the natural oils; furthermore, your pillow may also get wet due to the face oils. Excess oil in the face may leave your face congested and clogged which will make your skin unhealthier and difficult to breathe. Oily skins are often prone to acne; so, you have to take proper care of your skin and maintain balance with the natural oil. The best thing about having oily skin is that it has natural moisture and is less prone to wrinkles. With a gentle physical exfoliation with anti-bacterial ingredients, you can get rid of acne, and dark spots resulting from recent skin breakouts; and can also bring balance to your natural oils unclogging your pores.

Combined Skin

If you have shine on the nose and forehead, then you have combined skin. Combined skin is often moisturized in the T-zone. Normally, a person with combined skin has low to no breakouts. Daily gentle exfoliation is also important to keep the t-zone and cheek areas balances. Moisturizers with a gel-like texture are absorbed more quickly and less likely to cause breakouts. Start with a small amount and increase as needed to avoid over-moisturizing and stressing the skin.
