Sometimes, we apply the best of the cosmetic and make up products and yet get bad reactions on our face. If you have a similar problem, the reason could be your bad makeup routine. Simply putting on makeup is not enough; you must also ensure that you are practicing proper makeup habits in order to keep your natural skin healthy. Due to a lack of understanding, many of us continue to make the same mistakes over and over again, so we're here to tell you what modifications you should make in your makeup routine and what you should stop doing right now for healthier skin.

1. Not Cleaning The Brushes Regularly

Well, it's very important to wash your makeup brushes regularly to avoid any type of skin allergies or skin damage. They can harm your skin, but they also have the potential to ruin your makeup. When applied with a dirty brush, even the finest makeup can become streaky and spotty. However, clean brushes can apply the makeup in a better way. So, make it a habit to clean your brushes after each usage and stick to this routine.

2. Going To Bed With Makeup On

It's a rule that you cannot go to bed with your makeup still on. And if you don't follow this rule, you will end up with unhealthy skin. Sleeping with makeup on can speed up the aging process and cause collagen breakdown. If you don't want more fine lines, wrinkles and other kinds of skin issues on your face in the near future, stop doing this bad habit right away.

3. Wiping Instead Of Washing

If you prefer wiping your face over washing it, it's probably not a good choice for your skin. We understand that wipes are a more convenient option for removing makeup, but convenience does not always imply perfection, does it? Firstly, wipes don't always thoroughly clean the face, and wipes may actually be moving dirt and makeup over your face, clogging your pores. To avoid such problems, it is preferable to avoid using wipes and instead washing your face with water.  You can keep the face wipes for emergencies.

4. Wearing Nail Paint For Too Long

Avoid wearing nail paints for too long. Studies have shown that fungus can be caused from wearing dark nail polish for too long without removing it as the polish does not allow the nail to breathe. So, make it a habit to refresh your nails every two weeks.

5. Squeezing Pimples

Do not squeeze your spots in an attempt to get rid of them. These may give you immediate relaxation of a clean face but soon you may realize you got an infection as well as an ugly scarring. Squeezing can push bacteria and pus deeper into the skin, which might cause more swelling and redness.

6. Applying Makeup On Dry Skin

Do not apply makeup on dry skin. Before getting on with the process, use moisturizer as well as primer. These products on your face will help you keep out of age lines and itching skin.

 

I hope you will follow these good makeup habits for a fresher and perfect makeup look.
