Cosmetic Control: Perfect Product Portions
This week Gals & Ghouls have partnered with The Perfume Box to discuss product portions. We all know someone who uses too much or too little product...you know that friend that slathers an entire tube of moisturizer on their face in hopes that it will help their dehydrated skin. We all may be the “friend” once in a while, so let’s chat about perfect product portions and see what The Perfume Box has to say:
“Forget the facelift. Proper beauty maintenance can play a major role in the health and appearance of your skin. By simply incorporating the right products and portion sizes into your morning and evening routines, you can protect your skin from wrinkles and other damage.
Sleeping in makeup can cause clogged pores and breakouts, so the most basic and essential step in your beauty routine is to remove your makeup before bed. Double cleansing works well — once to remove the makeup, then again to cleanse the skin. Depending on your skin type, use a dime-sized amount of cream or gel cleanser. Foaming cleansers require a single pump. Using too much cleanser can lead to dry skin, while too little may result in blemishes.
Protect your epidermis from harmful UV rays by wearing sunscreen daily. It’s recommended you use a grape-sized amount on your face and a jigger’s worth on your body. Wearing an insufficient amount may lead to cellular damage and sunburns. Don’t forget about the backs of your hands and your neck, lips and eye area since they also are exposed to UV rays.
Go a step further in protecting your skin with a potent serum containing antioxidants such as vitamin C and E. This can help combat the aging free radicals that are a byproduct of pollution, UV rays and other environmental skin stressors. A little goes a long way, so be sure to use only a pea-sized drop. Excessive amounts may damage your epidermis.”
While using the appropriate product portions is important, it is also equally, if not more important, to hydrate and care for your body from within. Get those OZ’s of water in daily along with using proper product portions. Your skin will be glowing in no time. Want some skin care recommendations?
