You’re probably aware that excessive consumption of alcohol has a dehydrating effect on our skin and is not very healthy beauty-wise. But what about alcohol-based skincare products? Are products that contain alcohol definitely bad for our skin and therefore we should only use alcohol-free only products?
I admit that I’ve been kind of lazy in taking care of my hands and arms. Apart from applying hand cream, I’ve only started religiously applying sunblock on my hands and arms these two years after I noticed some age spots growing on them.
Seriously, this part of our body is a tell tale sign of our age. We can have really good skin on our face but if our hands are all wrinkled up and our arms are covered with age spots, that’s a dead giveaway.
I was looking up information about makeup brushes when I stumbled upon this great site on make-up tips. Very useful tips they have, and here are some relevant ones I’ve learnt about brushes.
Natural or synthetic brush
Natural bristled brushes are best as they are soft to the touch and are most effective for applying powder blush, face powder, eyeshadow or lipstick. Synthetic brushes, which are much more affordable and are often more durable and harder to damage are best reserved for eyeshadow base, cream eyeshadows, and concealers.
