10 Common Mistakes To Avoid When Applying Bronzer

Applying bronzer is not for everyone and also not an item girls would prefer to pick everyday when heading out. But it does help add a pretty glow to the skin on days when our face looks too pale or dull. But, applying bronzer is not an easy task and there are a few mistakes that most girls make when applying bronzer. So, here are 6 mistakes you should be avoiding, if you are new at the bronzer business.

1. Not Tapping The Brush

Always remember to swirl the brush onto the product and then tap it on the countertop or the edge of your bronzer container to get rid of access product. Once done, lightly apply bronzer under your cheekbones for a sun-kissed look.

2. Applying It Too Quickly

Here’s a tip: apply bronzer only when you’ve got the time. Bronzer is not like blush or mascara that you can just hastily throw on (but if you can, good for you). With bronzer, you have to be a little extra careful and should have enough time to make sure you blend it until it looks natural and not too made up. if you think you’ve got too much going on, take a clean brush and blend your makeup using it.

3. Overly Dark Shade

Remember that you want to go for a sun-kissed and not a baked look. So when choosing your ideal shade, make sure to go nothing more than one shade darker.

4. Applying Bronzer All Over The Face

Bronzer should be applied to the spots that are naturally hit by the sun for a natural look. Apply it lightly to the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, the forehead and the jawline

5. Choosing The Wrong Brush

Which brush you use to apply bronzer is equally important. Make sure not to use a very large brush or a kabuki brush as they would both result in covering most of your face with bronzer making the face look too dark. Rather go for a angled or medium fluffy brush to simply touch the right spots to add some hue.

6. Using Overly Shimmery Formula

Choose a bronzer that’s not too shimmery. Go for a shade that’s warm with mild shimmery particles to add just the right amount of glow to your face.

7. Apply Bronzer All Over Your Cheeks

common 7

Bronzer should be applied to add a hint of color to the most pale spots of your face. Applying it to the entire cheek might make you look like Lindsay here. So sweep a little bit of that product on the cheekbones gently brushing towards the ear.

8. Bronzer Is Not Highlighter

Don’t confused bronzer with highlighter. While highlighter simply add shine to put more emphasis on the lifted zones, bronzer adds color. So use your bronzer carefully NOT like Catherine Zeta-Jones.

9. Not Utilizing Bronzer To Contour

common 8

Matte bronzers are great for contouring especially if you like to contour everyday. Bronzers are much lighter than regular contour or concealer sticks used to contour. So brush on a little bronzer under your cheekbones, the forehead and your jawline for subtle contouring.

10. Applying Too Much Makeup

Bronzer in itself makes a strong statement and adds glow to the face. Since most bronzers are shimmer based, its best to keep the rest of the makeup on the subtle side. This will make you look more presentable.

Comparing Laser Skin Resurfacing With Chemical Peels

When considering skin resurfacing, you want the best results that work for your particular skincare needs. Comparing laser skin resurfacing with chemical peels can seem overwhelming. Both have pros and cons and both are known to work on renewing skin cells. To help narrow down the choices, look at the difference between these treatment options.

How Chemical Peels Work

Chemical peels resurface the skin through the use of chemicals. The chemical agent is applied to the surface of the skin and is left on it for a specific time period. Depending on which chemical was used, it can be left on for a few minutes or for several hours. The chemical agent works to remove the surface layer of skin, which then “peels” the dead skin cells.

Chemical peels vary in strength from light or superficial to a deep peel. Different chemicals are used to achieve different needs. Commonly used chemicals are glycolic, malic, or salicylic acids.  Fruit enzymes may also be used.

How Laser Resurfacing Works

Using light-based energy, the skin resurfacing laser applies a specific spectrum of light to the skin. Since the laser is non-ablative, it will leave the surface layer intact. The energy works on the deeper layer of skin, heating it to stimulate the skin cells into producing collagen and elastins. These essential ingredients work to plump the skin and repair damaged cells. The skin also reacts to the treatment by contracting, making the skin tighten.

Side Effects And Risks

Chemical peels are ablative, meaning they damage the outer layer of skin. Some of these treatments leave the skin raw and exposed. There is always a risk of infection when skin is exposed. It may also cause hyper-pigmentation in uneven skin tones. Plus, the condition of the skin while recovering may leave you wanting to hide from public view until it heals.

Risks with skin resurfacing lasers vary with the age of the device. A laser from twenty years ago delivered a somewhat painful treatment and sometimes burned patients. Modern cosmetic-lasers have little risk of burning clients and are much less painful than those in the past. After treatment, the skin can feel like it was sun burned or can be inflamed, but ice packs can be applied to relieve it.

Costs Of Treatments

The cost of a chemical peel varies according to which chemical was used. Superficial treatments may cost under $150 while deep peels can cost more than $800.

The cost of a laser skin resurfacing treatment is can be anywhere from $500 to $3,500.  The difference in pricing is dependent on how large an area is being treated. When comparing the cost of these treatments, do take into account how often the treatments will need to repeated.

Comparing Results

A mild or superficial chemical peel will only freshen the face for a few weeks. Treatments need to be repeated monthly to maintain the look. It also doesn’t work on moderate or deep wrinkles. The deep peel works on moderate wrinkles and lines and helps to reduce the visibility of scars. Deep peels should not be repeated more often than once every three months or so.

Laser skin resurfacing results take a bit of time to see the most noticeable results. The reason is that collagen and elastin production are not immediate. The skin will continue producing collagen many months after the procedure. Treatments tend to last for at least a year.

Seek A Dermatologist

After reviewing this information, seek the advice of your dermatologist to learn all risks and benefits of both skin resurfacing methods. They can also provide recommendations for finding a reputable clinic to give you the best treatment.
