Along with our foundation and bold brow obsession, achieving full and lengthy lashes is on our list of Makeup.com priorities. Unfortunately, the product that we use on a daily basis (and literally cannot live without) is working against us. Don’t be mad at the mascara though; its only crime is loving our lashes too much. But, if you’re guilty of any of these mistakes, your application could be doing more harm to your lashes than good.
Sometimes it feels like we’re all on a crazy race against our mortal enemy, time. We slather our faces with night creams and anti-wrinkle serums and dye our hair at the first signs of gray. It’s as if appearing older is a curse we are desperately trying to dodge. Sometimes, however, we end up on enemy lines without even realizing it. This is especially true when it comes to our makeup routine. Yes, one wrong move or swipe of a brush and you could be tacking on 10 years to your face. Before you fall into a state of panic, read through these common mistakes and make sure you’re avoiding them at all costs.
Winter weather is not fun for skin. Cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air, which then steals moisture away from the skin every second of every day. Without immediate care, dry skin can lead to cracking and bleeding, and harsh winter wind makes the problem worse. Indoor heat further robs the air of moisture, as do hot showers or baths and harsh cleansers.
Additional moisture helps, but you need to do more to actually counteract these effects and keep skin looking youthful and smooth. To reduce chapping, redness, itching, and keep skin more healthy and comfortable this season, try these tips.
