Do you know that it is a proven fact that alll you need to keep your skin hydrated is half a teaspoon of moisturizer, no more? If you feel like your skin is still dry, rather than using more amount of the same product, it may be worth asking yourself if you need to change and get an intense moisturiser. When applying moisturizer, remember to always use upward strokes on your face as it stops the skin going saggy and moving south!
Using just the right amount of sunscreen can be a tricky one as staying safe in the sun is just as important. When do you know you are using too much of sun screen lotion? If you still see the white residue of the sunblock even after rubbing the lotion in, you are definitely wearing more than your skin needs.
A handy tip while applying sun screen is to divide your body into 3 sections and using one teaspoons for each part. Apply the first on your legs and feet, another on your torso and back and finally the third part on your face, neck and arms. Using less of sunscreen means saving money.
When applying foundation, remember the golden rule that less is more. Surely you do not want the visible foundation line melting down your cheek, do you? Try blending it into your skin for a natural glow by using as little of foundation as possible. Start from the centre of your forehead and go down your nose. Then go to your cheeks and finally your chin. A tip is to always use your fingers while applying foundation as your natural body heat warms the product and helps it to blend onto your skin.
Shampoo is such an easy thing to overdo, but you need self-control while using it. Not many people know that more of shampoo is not cleaning any better than a smaller amount.

Using more shampoo will only rob your delicate hair of its natural oils which does more damage than good. Just gently massage your head with little amount of shampoo and rinse it with lukewarm water. As you do so, the suds running down your hair will be enough to clean the entire length of your hair.
