Makeup removal is so important for skincare. It’s just as important as brushing your teeth before bed, yet many people skip this step and leave makeup on all night. Not a good idea! Your skin is the foundation for your high-quality products by Gerard Cosmetics. Even if you’re really tired, don’t overlook removing your makeup. When and how you remove your makeup is also important.
You probably learned at a very young age how to wash your face and remove your makeup. Even when we’re diligent, some of us find out later in life that we’ve been doing it wrong. What??? There is a right and wrong way to wash your face? YES!
Have you noticed skin irritation or redness on your face? Either your makeup or skin care system could be to blame. It could have something to do with skin allergies. Are you using any new products?
If not, it could be related to the following:
Leaving Makeup on Too Long
Throughout the day, makeup mixes with sweat and bacteria. If left alone, can lead to blotches, blemishes or discoloration. Leaving makeup on overnight is bad enough, but leaving it on too long throughout the day can also be bad for your skin.
Instead of removing makeup before bed, remove it at the end of the day instead. Those few extra hours of being makeup-free can do wonders for your skin.
Good Dental Health
Good dental health doesn’t end when you go to bed. It’s obviously important to take good care of your teeth during the day, including brushing and flossing in the morning. And it certainly wouldn’t hurt to repeat that later in the day if you can squeeze it in.
But your mouth needs protection at night, too. And you can accomplish that by doing three things – brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash. You don’t have to do those in any particular order, but it’s important that do all three because if you don’t bacteria can settle in your mouth. You aren’t swallowing during the night so it has more opportunity to build up.
Remember: bacteria can also cause stains and discoloration!
Dial A Smile says keep those germs at bay. If all of the leftover food particles from your last meal are gone, the bacteria has no reason to hang around! When teeth are clean and well-cared for Dial A Smile at home teeth whitening system can do its job.
Just like washing your face properly, another important factor to consider is the way you brush your teeth. For starters, you need to use a soft-bristled brush because harder brushes can damage your gums. And when you brush, do it at a 45-degree angle to your gums – that provides the best coverage. It’s also important to brush all sides of your teeth. That includes the front, the top and the back on the inside. And make sure you use a toothpaste that contains fluoride.
When it comes to flossing, the American Dental Association recommends that you use an 18-inch-long strand. Holding it tightly between your thumbs and forefingers, use a gentle motion to get between the teeth, and when you get to the gum line curve the floss in a C shape around each tooth. That ensures that you’re getting all of the areas you need to clean.
