Does your skin look dry after the holidays?
It is time to pay more attention to your skin.
Skin care experts say that one of the kindest things you can do for your skin post-holiday is to let it breathe. Stop putting on heavy make-up. If you can get away with just a dab of lipstick, then do so.
❤ Wash your make-up brushes.
If you didn’t have enough time to clean your make-up brushes prior or duringholidays, now is the best time to do it.
If you don’t wash your make-up brushes, they may still have fractions of old eye shadow, blush, or foundation. They may keep bacteria. When you put on make-up with these brushes, you are risking skin inflammation or irritation.
How to do it: Put some facial cleanser in warm water. Use this mixture to wash your brushes with & thoroughly work the cleansing solution through the bristles with your fingers.
Then, rinse the brushes with running water. Use a clean towel to absorb most of the moisture & leave them to air-dry completely.
