Better looking skin without skin care

Well, yes, of course, skin care is important, especially if you wear makeup on daily basis. I don't know about you, but my skin is so unforgiving. Sometimes, I went to bed with makeup and my skin was dry and patchy in the morning as never before. Now I always remove my makeup before bed time and my skin feels so much better and it feels refreshed. Today, I won't talk about skin care, although I mean to do that in near future, but I will talk about little things that can help your skin looking better. Hope you'll find those tips useful.


1. (As I already mentioned:) Remove you makeup before bed time. Let your skin regenerate and let it breath when you're sleeping.

2. Clean your brushes. I've seen huge difference, when I started cleaning my brushes more frequently. Before I was like: "I use the same colours all the time, face brushes are not even dirty!" But then I got so many pimples for unknown reason. With clean brushes I don't have that much pimples, so I guess dirty brushes were the reason for my breakouts. And sanitizing your makeup can help, too.

3. Clean your phone with rubbing alcohol. If you ever noticed you get breakouts only on one side of your face, it's probably because you put your dirty phone on this side. You put your phone in a hand bag, on the table, touch it with dirty hands, put it on your face, it falls on the floor etc. Can you imagine how many bacteria that is? Every night I put some rubbing alcohol on a cotton bud and clean my phone with it.

4. This one is hard for me, but I avoid touching my face. Your hands are never 100 % bacteria free, so don't touch your face when your already touched billion things.

5. This one relates to dirty hands ... Don't squeeze your pimples. If you must do it, do it the right way. Squeezing your pimples causes even more bacteria growth, damage on your skin and pain.

6. Get you hair out of your face. You put all different chemicals in your hair, you fix them with dirty hands. I know it's hard to not have any hair on your face, but then at least clean it more often and don't use too much chemicals.

7. Last but not least, change your pillow case quite often. Pillow cases are a great place for bacteria: dirty hair, makeup on your face, it touches your face ... I usually turn it on the other side when I wash my hair and change it every other time I wash it.

  5. Super nasveti! Poznam večino in jih prakticiram, ampak moja trmasta koža očitno potrebuje veliko več, ker ji niti prava nega ne pomaga in se stalno borim z vsaj nekaj mozolji. >.< Ampak enkrat se bo že nehalo, upam.

      Dosti pomaga, tudi da se sprijazniš s tem, tako se vse začne v glavi. Bom začela meditirati na čisto kožo :D

  7. Love your tips - especially agree with the hair one. People with fringes often get spots on their foreheads due to bacteria, it's important to get hair away from your face every now and then :)

  8. Super nasveti!
    Jaz sem prelena s čiščenjem čopičev, pa prstov ne morem držat stran od obraza, ves čas nekaj praskam pa eeeeh. :D Se bom poboljšala, ker to je tisto, kar mi res največkrat dela probleme.

  11. wow, great post, girl! I NEVER used to wash my face regularly or take my makeup off or anything- and i've definitely switched it up in the past year or so. it IS amazing how much better it feels (duh). these are great tips! i just recently cleaned my brushes, finally. The tip about not touching your face is a hard one, though!
