Pimple Mapping : Why We Break Out in Certain Areas and Tips to Avoid Pimples

Pimples Arggg uninvited guests..!! 😏

We all go through this annoying skin issue of dealing with pimples some or the other time. Some face severe ones and some are just do din k mehman (guests for couple of days).

While some pimples are caused due to hormonal changes, some are caused due to lack of hygiene. Some are caused due to stress and some are indications of health issues. So if home remedies doesn’t work, I would suggest to consult a good dermatologist.!

You might have heard that ‘prevention is better than cure’. How about finding the exact root cause of pimples we get and address them, in order to avoid pimples??

In this post I am going to list out major causes of pimples, based on the facial area where we get them. Let’s call this pimple map. 😜

Brow Line:

  • Access/ left over brow products.
  • Waxing eyebrows
  • Hormonal especially during puberty

Forehead:

  • Hair products
  • Digestive system issues
  • Dehydration
  • Over consumption of processed food
  • Anxiety
  • Poor sleep

In between brows:

  • It’s the T zone area, where oil secretion is more. This in tern might cause breakouts.
  • Hormonal
  • Gallbladder issues
  • Dehydration

Temples:

  • Clogged pores
  • Blackheads and whiteheads

Cheeks:

  • Dirty cellphones
  • Dirty pillowcases
  • Dirty makeup applicators
  • Smoking
  • Bronchitis issues

Undereye:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Less water intake
  • Rubbing your eyes with dirty hands
  • Left over makeup products

Nose:

  • Poor circulation
  • Indigestion
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart related issues
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Unhygienic makeup applicators
  • Eating spicy food

Jawline:

  • Lack of certain vitamins
  • Overeating
  • Liver related issues
  • More sugar intake
  • Excess dairy and caffeine intake

Chin:

  • Indigestion issues
  • Excess alcohol intake
  • Caffeine intake
  • Dehydration

Neck:

  • Liver related issues
  • High progesterone levels
  • Can also be caused by using dirty pillows

 

Now that you know the causes let me give you bunch of tips to avoid them. (You might have already figured this out but as a beauty blogger it’s my duty to consolidate and list the tip. know? ) 🤓

Hygiene: 

This is very important.

  • Clean your cellphones as they contain a lot of germs. When dirty screen comes in contact with skin, it causes breakouts.
  • Change pillow cases regularly. Transferred facial products, drool make them dirty and help germs grow. I know it sounds gross. So we need to change the cases regularly.
  • If you use applicator like makeup sponges, brushes make sure you clean them regularly and dry them properly. You don’t want to apply germs to your faces. Do you? 😁😁

Water:

If you browse through skin care videos online, everyone repeats the same thing that you need to drink a lot of water. Drinking water not keeps you hydrated, but also helps in flushing out toxins.

dd

Junk Food:

I can’t say to sacrifice junk food completely. Because I am a junk food addict. But everything should be in moderation.
No bad habits please:🤫

Smoking kills. I know it sounds like a typical ad. But it’s the fact. It kills you and kills your skin. So please stop polluting air and your own self. pretty please..!!

Alcohol. This causes dehydration. Dehydration causes a lot of skin issues in return.

Go vegan:

By avoiding dairy products not just your skin will be thankful but also the innocent cow and her calf too.🐮

cc

Stress:

Breath, breath and breath till the time you flush out stress through your nostrils. Stress is the root cause for n number of health issues. Like, seriously.

Products allergies:

I have seen girls trying products blindly. (Include me also in the list of ‘girls’). But not all product works for all types of skin. If you find the product breaking your skin, stop using it immediately. No matter how expensive the product is.

Hormonal:

This is where you need to consult a good dermatologist, to get good guidance to cure this skin issue.

Hope this helps you to shoo away those little enemies..!!🙅🏻‍♀️

How to Fix Broken Cosmetics

Hello,

The other day I bought a sparkling black kajal pencil from the brand Rimmel London online, from Nykaa… The cap of the kajal was so tight that I had to put all my energy to open it. What happened next broke my heart. I ended up breaking the tip of the kajal. #sad

You can feel that pain right??? Breaking your brand new cosmetic. Heart breaking moment gal…!!!

If you are a makeup enthusiast and love cosmetics, I am sure you have gone through this kind of heart breaks at least once. No??? Oh come on, you should have at least one dried nail paint or an eyeliner you have never used since long time. Yes even they come under ‘broken cosmetics’. haha. But the good news is there are ways to fix our broken yet precious cosmetics.

Yes. You don’t have to throw away only because it broke accidently, instead of wasting the money you have spent, try out these steps to fix them.

Excited to know how???

Read on..

Broken Kajal:

Let me start with the recent one I have tried and tested. If you open kajal like hulk(putting all your energy) and end up breaking it, try this.

Put the tip back and blend it which is a temporary fix. Just to make sure the kajal is back in place. Now put the kajal pencil inside freezer for couple of hours.
It did work. Kajal had hardened and it was usable again…!!!

Dried Kajal Pencils:

Yes this too happens. If you keep eye pencils unused for long, they do get dried out. Which makes their application uneasy.
So to soften the dried kajal, just heat the tip of it slightly. This melted kajal is easier to apply.

Dried Gel or Liquid Eyeliner:

This happens with all those gals like me, who buy all the types of kajals and eyeliners in the market and use only few of them. In order to take care of rest of the dried eye makeup product, all you need is any essential oil. I use coconut oil.

Put few drops of coconut oil in the gel or liquid liner container. Leave it for a while. The product and oil gets mixed up and it softens the product.
Now you can use your moisturising eyeliner…!!!!
But, make sure use add only few drops of oil. Because you don’t want to end up making it very thin in consistency. Which makes your liner runny.

Dried Mascara:

Using dried mascaras can make your eyelashes look like the branches of trees covered by snow flakes. But here the snow flakes are black in colour. Ewww…
To fix the dried mascara, put the mascara tube in warm water for a while. Then add few drops of coconut oil and shake the mascara tube vigorously. This should fix the problem.

Broken Lipstick:

Sometimes we end up breaking lipstick. What you need to do other than crying??? Umm… Take a lighter or lit a candle. Melt the liquid at the end where it has broken. Put the melted and softened lipstick back in the bullet. Keep the lipstick in freezer. After couple of hours – Tada…!!!! Lipstick is fit and fine… #wink

Dried or Broken Powder Compact and Blush:

All you need is a bit of alcohol to fix this heart break.

  • Take the injured compact powder or blush. Crush it into fine pieces. Ouch…!!!
  • Mix a bit of alcohol.
  • Blend it well to get a paste like consistency.
  • Now put this paste into the compact case.
  • Keep the case for drying.
  • Once it is completely dried, your compact looks like it never broke.

Dried Nail Paint:

This, we all know. Add nail paint remover to nail paint. This will soften the dried nail paint. After a while, you can use the nail paint to paint your nails beautifully.
If you do not have nail paint remover, try adding alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. They work similar to that of a remover.

Broken Eyeshadow:

Since eyeshadows are soft in consistency, this require a easy step.

  • Take tissue paper.
  • Put on the broken eyeshadow.
  • Press the eyeshadow with the help of finger.
  • This will put the eyeshadow back to it was before.

Unreachable Product:

In case you have spent a lot of money on some product and you want to use every bit of it. But some times it happens that, you can see the product at the bottom of the bottle/case but you cant take it out using your finger or by patting the bottle.
In this case, all you need is an earbud. Using a clean ear bud you can take out the product and use it.
I do this for my ‘almost over’ foundations.

So, now you know the magic to fix the broken cosmetics.

If you have kept those broken cosmetics just because you don’t want to throw it away, fix them and use them.

The next time when you break them accidently, do not cry. Take up the products you need to fix and give them another life.
