oompa-loompaSome people seem to be absolutely in-the-know when it comes to all areas of beauty, but some of us still feel like we’re in the dark when it comes to solving certain issues. Here, we look at five of the most common issues which befall other women and share a little bit of knowledge which might help you all in the future.

I still seem to have residue left after taking off my make-up

If your make-up remover isn’t quite doing the job then there’s a good chance that it’s just not heavy-duty enough to deal with oil-based make-up. Switching to a micellar oil will ensure that you get rid of every scrap of make-up without damaging your skin in the process and will moisturise as you cleanse.

My make-up is giving me spots

Sometimes, a new make-up simply doesn’t agree with your skin, but if you’ve been using something for a while and it’s just started to give you spots, you could have a build-up of bacteria on your applicators or packaging. Giving them a wipe over with Dermalogica Skin Purifying Wipes will help to kill any lingering bacteria and keep them clean going forward.

Dry shampoo seems to go claggy in my hair

Dry shampoo is one of those products which can be so useful but also a bit of a pain. On the one hand, it can freshen up hair that you simply don’t have time to wash but if you use it too often, it can also build up and leave your hair feeling claggy. Using a little clarifying shampoo on DRY hair before you wet it can really help to remove all traces of dry shampoo, just rub it all in before stepping under the shower to create a lather.

My face is super red after waxing or threading my brows or top lip

Waxing and threading are both really effective and long-lasting ways of removing hair, but they can be a little harsh on the skin, leaving it feeling red and puffy for hours afterwards. Whether you do it yourself or go to a salon, apply a layer of Decleor Post-Wax Cream – Sensitive Areas afterwards to reduce redness, soothe the skin and reduce the speed of regrowth.

My tan is making my sheets orange

We all love a healthy glow, especially if it comes from a bottle but fake tan can leave your sheets looking like you’ve been rolling in Wotsits! Opting for a gradual tanner and using it at LEAST four hours before you go to bed will ensure that you build your tan to a colour that looks nice and natural whilst also ensuring that you don’t end up with sheets which look like they belong to an Oompa-Loompa!
