Avoid these beauty mishaps

When it comes to our beauty or make-up regime there may be a few mistakes that we tend to make numerous times.

Not to worry, a lot of these mishaps can be easily remedied.


Your face

Whether it comes to properly removing your make-up or applying sunscreen, you need to be vigilant when it comes to your face care regime.

Often doing a full make-up removal routine is the last thing on your mind before bed, but doing so every single night can make a huge difference in skin clarity. Just washing your face isn’t always enough; a proper make-up removal product should be used after washing your face.

Even though exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells too much exfoliation can cause the skin to lose moisture and even be more susceptible to redness and acne

Always moisturise and use sunscreen after exfoliating, and avoid scrubs made with particles such as seeds or crushed shells; these exfoliants have jagged edges that create microscopic tears in the skin.

Our necks are exposed to the same aging effects as our faces, however, they are often neglected. When applying your moisturiser and SPF, don’t stop at the jawline.



Many women use hair straighteners and curling irons to achieve the look they want. This is one of the easiest ways to destroy your hair slowly if you don’t protect it. Using thermal shield conditioner will protect your hair from heat while also reversing heat damage and generally keeping your hair soft and moisturised. Another tip is to never use any heat tools on your hair while it is wet or even damp.

Do not rinse your hair with hot water as this strips your hair of its natural oils and leaves your hair feeling like straw.

Never brush your hair when it is wet. Hair is at its most fragile when wet and it can compromise even healthy hair to the point that it snaps from tension. To avoid breakage but still get the knots out before styling, use your fingers (and a leave-in spray, if necessary) to detangle and part your hair after towel-drying.



When you constantly paint your nails, they can become brittle, dry, and yellow, due to lack of oxygen or forgetting to apply a base coat. There are nail treatments designed specifically to give your nails some much-needed oxygen and rest, while still looking super cute.
