Having good beauty standards goes far beyond just having the latest and greatest beauty products! There are many small factors that contribute to beauty blunders. Even with the best makeup around, you can still run into many issues, especially your makeup causing breakouts. By fixing the following beauty mistakes, your makeup can be a tool to enhance your natural beauty, instead of a tool to hide breakouts and blemishes.


Too Little Water

If you drink too little water throughout the day, you may experience a number of issues. When it comes to beauty, dehydration can lead to dry skin and a lack of fullness around the eyes and lips, causing wrinkles and fine lines. It is recommended to consume around eight glasses of water each day. While this may seem like quite a task, by eating water-rich foods and carrying a reusable water bottle with you, this is more than achievable.


Applying Makeup to Dry Skin

So, you haven’t been drinking the recommended amount of water and your skin is dry. When applying makeup to dry skin, you may run into different issues such as the makeup not blending into the skin well or your makeup highlighting the flaky patches of skin on your face. If you are dehydrated and have dry facial skin, apply a moisturizing cream, like Luebella Day Cream to hydrate your skin. This will leave your skin perfectly primed for makeup and give your skin a luxurious smoothness.


Not Cleaning Your Applicators

Breaking out after applying makeup is common, but often it isn’t because of your makeup. Do you remember the last time you washed your makeup applicators and brushes? Are your hands clean before applying makeup? Over time, your makeup applicators can develop all kinds of germs and oils that they picked up from your skin or being kept in the bathroom. Remember to wash your makeup brushes with warm water and a simple antibacterial soap or a makeup brush cleanser, which you can find at any beauty store. This will keep them clean and reduce the probability of breakouts.


 Leaving Makeup Residue on Your Skin

Before you head to bed, it’s important to remove your makeup. Sleeping in makeup can cause you to breakout as it doesn’t allow your skin to breathe and you are unable to wash it. However, even after washing your face, residue may still be present. By using an effective cleanser, like Luebella Revitalizing Facial Cleanser, you can avoid having makeup residue on your face and allow your pores to be cleansed, lessening the chance of blackheads and pimples.


Touching Your Face

Throughout your day, you do many things, from using the restroom to touching public items like a bus seat or a doorknob. These items are covered in germs and dirt that cause your skin to breakout. Touching your face also increases oil production that can lead to oily skin and clogged pores. Avoid touching your face, and when necessary, use a facial tissue to touch your face or wash your hands beforehand.


Forgetting the Exfoliator

Forgetting to exfoliate? Think again. Using an exfoliator enables you to get rid of old skin and reveal the beautiful, smooth skin underneath. By skipping the exfoliator, old facial skin may buildup, causing rough and discolored patches. Use a cleanser with a light daily exfoliant like Luebella Revitalizing Facial Cleanser to keep your beautiful, youthful skin in the spotlight.
