10 Beauty Commandments, As Seen in My Weekly
Popular magazine My Weekly shared its ’10 Beauty Commandments’ of simple and effective tips. The feature included advice from Dr Ross Perry, a skin expert who has carried out thousands of non-surgical procedures in Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ 4 London clinics.
Dr Perry provided the top 3 tips, which are all designed to keep the skin healthy and clear:
1/ Remove make up before going to bed
“No matter how tired you are, if your face isn’t properly cleansed, make-up and build up from the day itself will just sink further into the skin and clog the pores, resulting in breakouts, congestion and dull, lacklustre-looking skin.”
Removing make up helps your skin to breathe and regenerate overnight without having to deal with make up debris.
2/ Wear sunscreen
“I advise people to opt for a broad spectrum sunscreen to be protected against both UVB rays, responsible for sunburn and melanomas, and UVA rays, which cause wrinkles and ageing.”
Don’t be tempted to rely on make-up or moisturiser with added SPF, as it is unlikely to provide sufficient protection.
3/ Wash make up brushes
“Brush hairs and sponges are porous, so they hold onto oil, dead skin cells and bacteria; which can clog pores and lead to breakouts.
“Pop the bristles into warm water and massage in a gentle cleanser. Rinse, squeeze excess water with a clean towel, then re-shape and let them dry naturally.”
Dr Perry advises that foundation/concealer brushes should be washed weekly while eyeshadow brushes can be done monthly.
7 More Beauty Tips
The My Weekly Feature included further advice:
- Adding definition to eyebrows adds the perception of youth – enhancing the colour can really help, but avoid harsh lines
- Eye creams are specially formulated with extra ingredients and can help to improve the skin under or around the eyes
- If you have particular skin issues e.g. pigmentation, rosacea; try new skincare products that are specially designed to tackle these issues
- Go easy on the foundation – heavy products can actually highlight lines. Choose a lighter foundation and apply lightly, focusing on problem areas
- Facial massage can help to hydrate and stimulate the skin
- Old cosmetics can irritate the skin. Mascara and liquid liners should be changed every 3 months, liquid foundation/concealer every year, lipstick and powder blush up to 5 years
- Ensure you get enough sleep so that your skin and body can recover
