I have a few of these cosmetic sponges in my bathroom and I found out my husband has been using them. He likes to clean his face with these because he thinks they clean his face better and has refused to use the washcloth I bought for him, insisting that these are much better for his skin.
I used to apply my body lotion just before bed time but since learning that moisturizer should be applied to damp skin in my earlier entry on tips to optimize your facial moisturizer, I’ve changed my routine and have been applying it straight after my bath. Does it matter?
It does, according to an article from my favorite online skin care resource Smart Skincare.com, which indicated that “half of your skin care success is in how you apply the products.”
Since reverting back to using compact powder foundation, I’ve been obsessing with the application techniques to ensure that I get the best coverage without having my makeup looking all cakey and streaky. I’ve discussed the merits of compact powder foundation vs mineral foundation and loose powder but how we apply them is also important. So what have I discovered in my experimentation which maybe of interest to you?
The topic on whether or not toners should be incorporated into our daily skincare regime has been much discussed. I’ve already written two to three entries on the topic and here’s one more for today. The reason why this entry came about is because I found a very interesting comment left by Dr Veronica Waks of Natural Health and Medicine in yesterday’s entry on Hydrosols. Veronica, by the way is a licensed Naturopathic Physician.
