Beauty Mistakes to Avoid

I am not a vain person but from time to time, I do wanted to dress up, put make up on and be extraordinarily pretty. Unfortunately, being the not-so-vain that I am, instead of taking care of my skin or hair, I end up doing otherwise.

So ladies out there, admit it, we all In one way or another, we are all guilty of committing these beauty mistakes so I am sharing it now so we can avoid it next time.

1. Do not brush your wet hair. - Instead use a wide-toothed comb when brushing your wet hair as it cause less hair fall.

2. Shave your legs with a shaving cream. - I am guilty of this as I am would sometimes just use body wash or worse, just soap! LOL. Well, lesson learned then. Shaving cream were invented for shaving your hair off as body wash or soap is for washing your body, of course.

3. Avoid drying your hair by rubbing it in a towel. - If you are really in a rush to dry your hair before heading outdoors, try blow drying it using cold air (not hot, as much as possible) or, just press it unto a towel or tissue. Rubbing it in a cloth may only cause frizzy hair and we wouldn't want that right?

4. Do not spray perfume to your hair. - Most perfumes has alcohol and we all know that it isn't healthy for our locks.

Hope that these tips help. Do you have any other beauty tips to share to us?

Oh I hate shaving legs. Waxing is much better rather than shaving it.

Great tips. I usually brush my hair while it's wet which causes hair fall. I have a long hair which is difficult to manage mommycharm

Good thing that I do not do all these things you mentioned in your post. I am not a vain person as well but I like taking care of myself and look best when I go out and attend events.

I would agree with most of these, but spraying perfume on your hair is actually okay, as long as you don't have extra dry hair to begin with. It's fine for normal hair, and it is actually recommended by the experts, as fragrance lasts longer on the hair than on the skin. I have done this for years, and sometimes I will be surprised when someone compliments my perfume, knowing that I sprayed it eight or ten hours ago. It really does last that way!
