3 Beauty Regimes You Should Never Skip

Hi! Good Morning everyone!Hope you guys are doing great!! Three Beauty Regimes You Should NEVER Skip! Here you go!


Beauty Mantra No 1#: Slathering on sunscreen

why we skip it? : The Myth

1.We think we’re safe from the sun rays when we’re indoors!
2.We think all sunscreens are thick, greasy and irritating to skin.

Why should we do it? : The Truth

First, UVA rays still reach our skin and are a major cause of skin aging, wrinkles and dryness. So our little bottle of sunscreen is a must. Second, why should we worry about greasy products or skin irritation? We are smart and we know our skin type, right girls? So go hit the store and get the apt sunscreen for your skin type. (If you still don’t know your skin type, feel free to leave us a message. We shall explore your skin type and do wonders with your skin)

*Bejeweled Tip*: For the best protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays, use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day. Be sure the label says “Broad-spectrum”Which means that the sunscreen protects you from both types of rays. Apply it on your skin 30 minutes before going into the sun. Then reapply every two hours or immediately if you have gone for a swim/shower. Choose a sunscreen designed for your skin type.


Beauty Mantra No 2#: Conditioning hair

why we skip it? : The Myth

1. We think our hair is safe from damage and doesn’t need conditioning, especially if we don’t colour or chemically treat It.
2. We don’t have extra time in the morning to apply conditioner after shampooing.

Why should we do it? : The Truth

In healthy hair, the cuticle (the hair strand is covered by the cuticle) is smooth and light easily reflects off, so the hair looks shiny. Unfortunately, chemical processes (like perming, colouring or relaxing) and heat styling tools (like blow-dryers, curling irons or flat irons) make the hair cuticle rough, damaged and dull. Conditioner coats your strands, leaving behind a thin film to protect the cuticle from moisture loss, harsh chemical treatments and styling damage. The protected cuticle becomes smooth and reflects light, leaving luminous locks.

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to leave conditioner in your hair for a long period of time for it to work. The conditioner’s beneficial effects simply come from coating your hair, not from how long you leave it in.

*Bejeweled Tip*: The key is making sure you distribute the conditioner through your hair evenly. Concentrate on the ends, which tend to be dry and damaged. And because various types of conditioners offer different benefits, choose one suited for your hair?s specific needs.

Beauty Mantra No 3#: Exfoliating skin

why do we skip it? : The Myth:
we think skin’s natural cell renewal process automatically removes dead cells and replaces them with new, healthy ones. So no extra work is needed on our part.
We assume that exfoliation can irritate or damage skin.

Why we should do it? :The Truth:

Exfoliation is the removal of the oldest dead skin cells that cling to the skin’s outermost surface. As we age, the cellular turnover process slows, and dead skin cells don’t shed as easily. Instead, they accumulate on the skin’s surface, making our complexion look dull and feel rough. Got oily skin? Oil acts as glue that prevents dead skin cells from being shed. So exfoliation is necessary to keep your skin looking fresh and feeling smooth.

Another reason to exfoliate: Built-up dead skin cells form a barrier, preventing other skincare products or treatments from penetrating the skin. Therefore, these products don’t work as effectively, greatly reducing their potential benefits. Exfoliation allows products to more effectively penetrate the skin, and in turn, better product penetration may lead to better results and better-looking skin.

*Bejeweled Tip:* Over-exfoliation can be irritating, especially for dry or sensitive skin. It can also make your skin more vulnerable to sunburn or sun damage. Exfoliate twice weekly to maintain smooth skin or more often if your skin is oily.
