Best Practices for Every Day
Many of us may not realize the small, unhygienic mistakes we may be making throughout the day. Constantly touching our faces, not washing our hands or using dirty makeup brushes can be a few of the main culprits for bacteria growth and unwanted breakouts.
“Even if you’re only doing makeup for yourself, there are some key things to remember. First, always wash your hands prior to touching your face, then set that cell phone down! Going between your face to your phone is germ central, and I promise the risk of getting some bacteria on your flawless skin will ruin the joy of makeup and cause some serious breakouts,” Lipscomb explains.
And of course, we can’t forget about skincare! Good hygiene practices are just as important to apply to your skincare routine in order to achieve a healthy, glowing (and happy!) face.
“Never scoop your makeup or products from a jar with your fingers, period. Even if it's for your personal use. Oil, bacteria and germs can build up in your products that way over time. It's smart to use a Spatula. I love the Sigma Skincare Brush Set for all my skin care applications including masks, serums and moisturizer,” Oh says.
