Is it teething time for your little one?
Beauty regimes are important to keep skin clean, clear and blemish-free. However, leading busy lives can leave some mum’s beauty regime with little to be desired.
 
Here are 6 ways that your beauty regime, or lack-thereof, is hurting you:
 
Routine facials
While you may think you are doing your skin a world of good, you are actually doing more harm. Steam used to open pores and can lead to broken capillaries in your face while deep cleans can lead to scarring.
 
Heavy foundation
Skin needs to be able to breathe and thick, heavy foundation can actually suffocate it. If you are trying to cover up blemishes, use a concealer on these areas and a lighter foundation everywhere else.
 
Rubbing your eyes to remove mascara
Rubbing your eyes too much when removing mascara is not good. Doing this can cause your lashes to fall out and leave your eyes red and puffy.
 
Over tweezing
No one likes thick, unruly brows but neither do we like over-plucked ones. Go with your natural brow line and don’t try to change the shape of your eyebrows.
 
Forgetting your neck
Unfortunately, the neck area is often forgotten about when it comes to a beauty regime. However, it can really show your age, so make sure you apply moisturiser and anti-ageing cream to this area too.  
 
Skipping on the suncream
Suncream is so important to both protect you from skin cancers and ageing. Make sure you apply it on your face all the time, even during the winter.
