Bad Beauty Habits You Need to Stop Doing
Posted on August 23 2018
There's some beauty habits that aren't doing us any good and the the experts out there wish we would all stop doing. We've put together a list of small changes that will make a big difference to your beauty regime:
PROBLEM: NOT LOVING YOUR NAILS
Solution: Healthy, natural looking nails don’t require constant manicures. Wearing a conditioning base coat such as Nailtiques Nail Protein Formula 2 will help to prevent moisture loss and maintain healthy nail condition. You can also add a gel top coat on top to make your nails stronger.
PROBLEM: BRUSHING WET HAIR
Solution: If you need to comb when your hair is wet, use a Tangle Teezer or comb. Brushing wet hair with a hard brush will create fractured strands and breakages. It's best to ALWAYS apply a light weight product such as GHD Heat Protect Spray to will seal in moisture prior to your drying and styling.
PROBLEM: OVER STYLING YOUR HAIR
Solution: When styling the hair with heat, you are altering the hair’s hydrogen bond, which shouldn't reach over 180 degrees. When going over 200 degrees, you are exposing hair to temperatures which damages hair in multiple ways including breaking and colour fading. For different hair types, use different power, not different temperatures.
Use different styling producrs that don't involve adding heat directly to your hair, like CurlME.
PROBLEM: POPPING SPOTS
Solution: Popping any spot is very tempting, however doing this is a massive no-no in the eyes of our beauty experts. We reccomend using a blemish control treatment such as Murad’s Rapid Relief Spot Treatment which works to penetrate pores to visibly reduce the size and redness of spots within as little as four hours.
