Beauty Blunders are a part of life. Every woman goes through a time when they are in the dark about what works best for them. Telling people about these blunders can be embarrassing. Some blunders can be embarrassing, but it’s nothing to worry about. The first step is knowing the mistake you made.

Here are some beauty blunders you want to avoid. 

  • Skip the Hemorrhoid cream for under-eye puffiness: There are some people who try to use this to correct the puffiness under their eyes, but it doesn’t correct the problem, it makes the lines and wrinkles under your eyes more visible. Drinking water and applying apricot and jojoba oils should do the trick.
  • Applying Nail Polish on Pimples: Since nail polish contains acetone, it can burn your skin because acetone is very harsh. Burning your skin is the last thing you want to do. Try using strawberry and honey oil to fix the problem.
  • Skip the Fragrance for a Job Interview: Being free of chemical and perfumes will be your saving grace—you will be OK without it.
  • Don’t slather on heavy creams for red, irritated skin: Having red and irritated skin is unfortunate, but it happens to the best of us. The last thing you want to do is cover the skin with heavy creams.
  • Don’t Get into a Ritual of Using Cleansing Wipes: A mixture of dirt and oil covered all over your face when you use cleansing wipes is a recipe for disaster. Try using a tissue off cleanser—it’s your best option. 
  • Skip Cleansing in the Morning: Cleaning your face in the morning can definitely help with wiping away nighttime products you use on your face. 
  • Cleansers that claim to leave the skin “squeaky clean” and tight: Having tight and squeaking clean skin may sound like you have the perfect skin, but in all honesty, it’s not normal. If the cleanser makes your skin tight, it can be a sign that your face is deprived of water. Dead skin cells start to build up on your skin without water—you don’t want that problem. 
  • Avoiding oils in your skin care: Oils get a bad reputation, but not all of them are bad for your skin. Safflower, jojoba and sunflower oils are actually beneficial.
