When it comes to your lotions and potions, you need to know how much to use to max your beauty and budget. Need help? Here’s a guide to follow and you’ll avoid breaking the bank:
1. Body lotion
Size: Half a lemon
Spilt your body into three sections – legs, arms, and torso. Spilt the dollop into three and massage upwards in circular motions. This helps boost your circulation which in turns results in healthier, glowing skin.
Size: A jelly bean
Feed your skin by rubbing moisturiser between your palms (warming it up helps activate the ingredients better). Massage into skin in upward motions to keep skin firm. Downwards motions will cause your skin to sag in the future.
3. Styling Mousse
Size: One lime
Too much styling product can weigh down your hair and make it look greasy. To avoid looking like your haven’t washed your hair in weeks, stick to a lime size amount and keep it away from your roots.
4. BB Cream
Size: A pea
Yes, you read right. BB cream is not meant to be applied all over the face, just mainly to your T-zone, which almost everyone has problems with. Work your way outwards to the sides of your face, but use a lighter touch.
Size: Quarter of a plum
People always tend to overdo it when it comes to shampoo – mix it with water and lather it a little and you’ll have more than enough. A little definitely goes a long way. The size works great unless you have Rapunzel-like tresses- in which case we suggest half a plum’s worth.
6. Eye cream
Size: Sunflower seed
The skin around your eyes is very delicate and thin. Pat it very lightly over your eye sockets to diminish dark circles and wrinkles.
