6 Beauty Products We’ve All Been Using Wrong

Shaking nail polish before painting your nailsYou should know that shaking your nail polish will only make your manicure worse because it traps the air and causes bubbles on your nails. Additionally, do not mix it by pumping the brush in and out of the container. It’s better to roll the bottle in your hands without any sharp movements, or simply do nothing.

Brushing your hair from the rootsBrushing you hair using this method will lead to hair breakage. The right way to brush your hair is by dividing the hair into sections and working your way from the bottom to the top. This technique will help you detangle your hair more easily. You can also check for tangles with your fingers to avoid hair damage.

Applying powder all over your faceYou should only apply powder only to certain areas. In most cases, it’s recommended to put some powder on your undereye area, forehead, nose, and chin, avoiding your cheeks. These areas are often the oiliest. Applying too much powder highlights your skin imperfections like bumps or dry patches.

You apply perfume right under your ears or on your hairIf you really want your perfume to last longer, you should actually apply it right after moisturizing. Spraying perfume on your hair dries it out as it contains an alcohol-based formula. Rubbing it on your skin is not a good way either. The friction heats the skin and releases natural enzymes that change the scent. Apply perfume to your clothes or on top of your ears.

You using shampoo immediately after wetting your hairInstead of quickly rinsing your hair and applying a good amount of shampoo, it’s better to let your hair soak a little bit. This way, you get all the benefits from the formula. Another point in favor of soaking is using less shampoo.

Applying lipstick from the edges to the centerMost ladies don't know that the correct way to apply lipstick is by going from the inside out. Focusing on the center gives you more control and reduces the chances of going outside the lip line. You can use a brush or your finger.
