Don’t store your makeup in the bathroom
I’m totally guilty of storing my makeup in the bathroom, but dermatologists prescribed that the warm and humid conditions of your bathroom during and after showers or baths can make your makeup expire more quickly. It’s better to store your daily makeup in your bedroom instead.
Store your less frequently used creams and serums in the fridge.
According to experts, it’s best to store any creams, eye creams or serums in the fridge as it will allow for longer shelf life. It’s also especially good for eye creams as the cooling sensation reduces puffiness under the eyes. But please don’t put oils, pressed powder, lipsticks or eyeliners in the fridge.
Always, always, always use sunscreen.
Remember when your mom used to slap on the sunscreen to your face and body, well... mother knows best because sunscreen is vital to your skin care. Kim Kardashian’s LA-based dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer, recommends that sunscreen of SPF 30+ be worn daily to prevent the skin from UV damage, ageing and unwanted dark spots.
Regularly clean the things that touch your face.
Your phone is probably one of the dirtiest things you own and you definitely carelessly throw it on your bed and slap it against your face all the time. Make sure you regularly clean the things that constantly touch your face, like your phone and your pillowcase. Dr. Harold Lancer recommends washing or changing your pillowcase once a week and cleaning your phone with cleansing wipes.
Avoid touching your face as much as possible.
Your fingers have been everywhere and you know it. Try to avoid touching your face as much as you can with unwashed hands as you can easily transfer bacteria to the skin and cause breakouts.
Never ever sleep in your makeup.
This one is also pretty obvious, but even on the nights when you’re drunk AF and literally can’t, even on the nights when you’re tired AF and literally can’t, even on the nights when you’ve had amazing sex and just want to cuddle bae until you fall asleep… don’t. Make sure you wash your entire face thoroughly before hitting the hay. Sleeping in your makeup will clog your pores and cause breakouts.
