Are there any beauty myths you want to bust for us?

Just that if something looks too good to be true, it usually is… especially in the world of skincare and beauty! Do your research before jumping on certain beauty bandwagon products and treatments.

One of the most common ones I hear is, “I’ve heard that it’s bad to wear make -up every day because it prevents our skin from breathing and that it causes more breakouts”. Well, it doesn’t have to be bad to wear make-up daily as long as you are following a few basic rules.

  1. I suggest using a Mineral Based makeup with a Broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) SPF protection which provides the coverage you want, a barrier to environmental pollutants and dirt, as well as feeling lightweight.
  2. Making sure to thoroughly cleanse your skin at the end of the day. It is very important to cleanse your skin both morning and night but by cleansing your skin twice at night helps to really remove all of that dirt and makeup. The first cleanse breaks through the makeup and dirt, and the second cleanse actually cleans the skin.
  3. Cleaning your make-up brushes regularly, as in every week. And as for sponges, throw them away! They are meant to be disposable and harbour bacteria that can contribute to those pesky breakouts. And with breakouts, some Mineral Make-up is developed as an extension of your skincare and can work alongside your recommended skincare regime to improve congestion and breakouts.

So, by following these few simple tips, you can BUST this one Beauty Myth.
