Makeup products and techniques are advancing day by day that every other person is seen becoming an influencer or coming up with a makeup brand. The industry is flourishing more than ever, and nothing, not even the pandemic, can shake it loose. And so the trend is normalizing to a much younger and uninformed level as well.
These individuals and anybody else risk their lives using the chemically bombarded makeup products each day not knowing how to practice them healthily. Without the proper knowledge of the safe use of products, one can damage their skin to an irreversible state. Beautifying products and procedures are actually extremely harmful, especially to sensitive or young skin. Therefore before applying any treatment to your skin, make sure that you implement the following safety precautions and proceed after establishing that the chemicals used aren’t going to harm you:
Maintain Overall Cleanliness
Makeup is applied using several if not some tools and applicants. These tools come in all shapes and sizes. Firstly there are brushes each for a different part of the face, and then you have sponges, curlers and so on. And a whole different set is used for removing the makeup and practicing skincare. Owning several of these applicants can seem like a proud and a right thing but comes with responsibility.
After using some of the application tools, they need to be thoroughly cleaned with water regularly and deep cleaned with cleansing products once every two weeks or a month. Makeup tools can get especially dirty when sweat, oils, products and other bodily fluids get mixed and create a harmful blend for when applied to the skin again. Also, make sure to always wash your hands before and after applying, and never use hands to pour out a product.
Use the Correct Technique
Everyone these days has a beauty or makeup regime where they follow a routine to make their skin look good and according to the trends. Usually, makeup tutorials start with an application of foundation on top of more foundation in addition to several other makeup products until the face is entirely transformed.
What actually should happen is the regime should start with total cleansing and preparing of the skin for heavy chemicals. If you smear the dangerous products without cleansing and fortifying the surface, they will interact with it on their terms. After cleansing, apply some skin-friendly moisturizer and SPF to protect it from the outdoors and products’ reaction.
End the day with removing makeup and cleansing again. When performing makeup removal, remember to again use quality products like the Bioderma makeup remover to no leave any residue and keep the skin safe from damage.
Opposing to what unprofessional makeup gurus or influencers have to say about storing and buying lots of products, having a few useful items on hand can work better for you. It’s never good to buy makeup items, waste money and stock them all up in cupboards to be used in the future no matter how low of a discount they are offered.
Makeup and other cosmetic products all have expiration dates, and as they are directly applied to the skin, they can create irritation and taint it severely. Also buying bulk products on a low price can never be favorable. Your skin is a living thing that needs proper nutrition and good quality products to take care of it. Discounted bulk products are rarely good quality, so it’s best to spend some money on value items and replace them only when they end, not before that.
