Ladies, let’s be real. Looking and feeling good is hard. Whether it is a few stray eyebrow hairs that are ruining your day, or the unexpected rain that shows up just after you have stepped out of the hairdressers, sometimes it just feels like the world is against you.
And while we do not encourage you try to live up to society’s expectations, we do encourage you to find a way to feel like your best self. That is why we are sharing some of the most annoying beauty problems that you will definitely be able to relate to, and how you can solve or prevent them. So, you can get back to feeling beautiful in no time.
Skincare leads to breakouts
As women, we are constantly told about the importance of an intense skincare regime. From cleansers, masks, toners, serums and moisturizers, there seems to be a ton of products available – all promising a path to the perfect complexion. But more often than not, adding all these new products into the mix can do more harm than good.
If you have noticed your skincare regime is leading to breakouts, it is time for trial and error. Moisturizing is supposed to be a vital part of daily skincare, but if you are worried that additional product is adding to the oils within your skin, try to avoid scented and oil-based options.
It is also worth trying several different products to see which are leading to the best results. This could get pretty expensive, so join forces with your friends to balance the costs or look for testers or travel size versions.
Body hair just grows back too fast
You should never shave because you think it is what your partner wants. It is down to what you want and what you are comfortable with. Those of us that do shave, however, are fighting a never-ending battle of shaving rash, stubble and rapid regrowth.
If you are finding body hair is growing back too fast, or simply just do not want to deal with the tedious task of shaving, it might be time to call in the professionals. The best laser hair removal treatments can last months – even years. Check out the treatments available in your area and read this guide on what to expect from your first session.
Foundation that never looks smooth
While the influencers on Instagram, TikTok and YouTube seem to get a smooth and perfect complexion with their foundation, for the average girl, things do not seem to work like that. If you suffer from peachy fuzz, large pores or dry skin, it is pretty tricky to get flawless makeup.
There are several solutions. First, invest in a good primer – it really is worth it. Another solution is to gently shave peach fuzz. It is a myth that it will grow back darker so do not worry. Lastly, make sure to exfoliate and moisturize dry skin off before trying to use foundation. Otherwise, the product will just encourage more flaking.
The final solution to all your problems? Ditch all the products and learn to feel beautiful in your own skin.
