8 MUST KNOW Beauty Questions and Answers -- Test your beauty knowledge
1) Do you know that plucking your eyebrows can make your eyelids saggy?
Although the hair grow back slower, when you pluck your eyebrows, you are repetitively pulling out your delicate eyelid skin at the same time.
Using a razor designed for your eyebrows is a better alternative to waxing, plucking, or tweezing. Shaving with a razor removes the hair on the surface, so it does not pull out your skin. Always remember to put eye gel or cream on your eyelids before and after shaving.
2) Eye gel or Eye cream?
If you are in your younger years but have noticed some lines around your eyes, don't panic!
Lack of hydration may be the main cause of those lines. However, if you continue to ignore them, wrinkles will likely to form permanently.
Most of the anti-wrinkle eye creams are oil based and are targeted at mature skin. They can be too heavy for younger skin which can cause milia like oil seeds (small white dots) formed under eyes.
A lightweight but moisturising eye gel is the smarter choice.
3) Why do you need to unclog your pores?
If your pores are clogged and your face is not clean enough, applying any skin care products will not have the full effect because your clogged pores prevent nutrients from absorbing.
4) How to unclog your pores?
Clean your face thoroughly by steaming your face or using facial scrub can unclog your pores.
5) How often should you exfoliate your face?
You actually don't need to exfoliate your face until the dead skin cells have accumulated.
If you over exfoliate your face, you remove your skin's natural lipids at the top layer of your epidermis which is the natural environmental protector. Over exfoliating can cause irritation and dryness.
Younger skin, in fact, only requires exfoliation once or twice per month.
6) When should you apply sunscreen?
At least 20 minutes before you expose yourself to the sun to allow it penetrating the skin and apply again right before you go out. Reapply every one or two hours.
7) Do you put shampoo directly onto dry hair?
Rubbing shampoo on dry hair can damage your hair and cause hair loss.
The correct way is to wet your hair with lukewarm water first, then put a sufficient amount of shampoo onto the palm of your hand, add a little water and rub it to create lather. Massage your scalp and hair with the lather.
8) Try not to run the air conditioner during sleep , why?
It is because the air conditioner can make your skin drier.
You can place a cup of hot water nearby and you will notice your skin is less dry in the morning. This works well in small spaces.
