I’m a big believer in sharing the love, so today I’m sharing with you some useful beauty tips I’ve come across lately. I hope you find them useful!
- Wait at least 30 minutes after you have applied your facial serum before you apply your moisturiser. This ensures that the serum is properly absorbed and does its thing before the skin gets busy with the moisturiser
- If you suffer from an itchy scalp or just don’t feel your hair gets clean, apply shampoo and let it sit in your hair for a few minutes before you rinse it out. This trick has done wonders for my itchy scalp. Thanks, Pernille at Olimb & Co!
- Cleaning your makeup brushes regularly reduces the amount of hair they are shedding and prolongs their life. Use Mac’s brush cleanser as a quick solution and your hair shampoo for a monthly proper clean. Dry the brushes flat with their handles slightly elevated to prevent the water from running into the handle and dissolving the glue
- The larger the grains in your scrub, the harder it works and the less frequently it should be used. If you have sensitive skin on your face or body, go for scrubs with subtle grains like Dermalogica’s Microfoliant for face and Avene Gentle Body Scrub for body
- Rather than buying expensive body scrubs, invest in a pair of synthetic scrub mittens. Once in a while I treat myself to a fancy scrub, but most of the time I’ll use Body Shop’s “bath gloves” to scrub my body in the shower. They are excellent at getting rid of those annoying bumps on your upper arms as well as dry skin on your legs. I use mine two to three times before I wash them (in a laundry bag) in the machine on cold. Since the mittens don’t way much, they are also great to bring on holiday with you to ensure that your tan gets as deep as possible!
Do you have any great tips of your own that you want to share with us? I’d love to know!
