Let’s face it, we all tend to be obsessed with beauty products from time to time. We can’t blame ourselves. Having beautiful dewy, glowing skin is something we live for. Unfortunately, our pockets die a little bit every time we buy beauty products.
With more and more women looking for the perfect product and great results, prices are getting a little higher. Here are the beauty serving sizes you need to know in order to prevent overusing your products.
Cleansers go a very long way, especially if they are foam cleansers.When using a cleanser, the recommended amount for usage is a dollop, or the size of a hazelnut. When using a cream cleanser, you can use a little more since they don’t foam up.
2. Eye Cream
Eye creams are very popular for covering those nasty dark circles we get under our eyes after a long night, but they are also known for being quite expensive.
The under-eye area does cover a large area at all, so a small amount is sufficient. To make this expensive product last by only use a pine nut-sized drop for each eye, any more than that your is just wasteful.
3. Hair and Skin Serums
Serums are great for giving, and storing in moisture to our skin and hair. They can give your skin a youthful, even toned look, making you look younger and more refreshed. Serums are great, but heavily concentrated. Because they are heavily concentrated, you really don’t need to apply much to your skin or hair.
We recommend a pea sized amount for your whole face. This way, you won’t soak your pillow case with an oily face. If you use a hair serum, you should also use a pea-sized amount. Only apply the serum to your ends to prevent greasy hair.
We are all guilty of going a little foam crazy when it comes to our shampoo. Maybe it’s because we think that means better results, or maybe it’s just fun. Either way, we need to drastically cut back on the amount of shampoo we use.
All you really need is a pump about the size of a strawberry. This amount will still give you a clean head of hair, and will wash away all of the products you’ve been piling on to your locks.
Conditioners are great for restoring protein and moisture to our hair. We tend to overuse conditioner, and because it is usually very thick, this can really weigh down our hair.
If you have coarse hair, use a pump the size of a 50 cent coin. If you have regular-textured hair, the size of a 20 cent coin should do. Make sure you are coating your hair from the ends to the scalp so that your whole head is benefiting from your conditioner.
Moisturizers are another product we go crazy with. They make our skin feel so good, so we want to pile on more and more.
For your face, try applying the size of two peas. This should be enough to cover the areas that you might be having the most problems with. If two isn’t enough, try the size of three. If you’re moisturizer has SPF, automatically start with three so that you get those benefits.MYNEWSHUB
