How Much Product Should I Use?
When you apply a beauty product, do you think about how much you're using? Could it be too much of a good thing, or maybe it's not enough?
Here's how much you should be using:
Retinol products: pea size
Since it's so concentrated any more can cause irritation.
Serums: pea size
They're strong, so specifically treat the spot you're targeting and no more.
Eye Cream: blueberry size
Too much can cause puffiness and little bumps. Use a half of a blueberry size under each eye.
Foundation: large blueberry size
Foundation is meant for coverage of discolored areas, not to mask your entire face. Too much will look cakey.
Facial Moisturizers: quarter size
If your cream contains anti-aging ingredients, it can cause redness and irritation if you use too much or have sensitive skin.
Sunscreen: quarter size for face, shot glass amount for body
Most people don't use enough! Use as much as you can rub into your skin for ultimate protection.
Hair Conditioner: quarter size
If your hair is dry, apply from root to ends. If not, mid-shaft to ends will do. Too much can actually weight your hair down.
Mousse: golf ball size
Too much mousse will not give you bigger hair; it can actually weigh your hair down!
Hair Serums and Waxes: dime size
Too much can make your hair look dirty. The opposite of the look you're going for!
