‘It’s important that the residue is rinsed off after using a makeup wipe,’ Mia told FEMAIL. ‘I’ve seen it and what happens is that the skin and eyes become irritated.’
Mia said it’s important to remove mascara and eyeliner properly, as the reside can also cause irritation.
2. Don’t bleach your hair at home
Anthony Nader, celebrity stylist and founder of Raw Salon, told FEMAIL that if you don’t want to look like a carrot top, put the bleach away.
‘By the time you purchase your bleach and sit with one, two, or even three applications on your head, the colour would have gone carrot orange or caused your hair to break,’ he explained.
Anthony said you end up having to call the salon and rectify the damage.
‘When you want to go on the lighter side of the spectrum, you can’t mess around. You end up coming to the salon and spending more of your hard-earned cash to get it right,’ he said.

4. Ensure your skincare regime ends at the bust, and not the face
Celebrity facialist Melanie Grant previously told FEMAIL that women sometimes forget to extend their skincare regime further than their neck.
And when it comes to achieving glowing skin, it won’t set you back hundreds, or even thousands.
Melanie said it’s vital to moisturise and exfoliate regularly.
‘Fresh, dewy, polished skin is well hydrated and well exfoliated. Exfoliating encourages cells to shed. I love ingredients such as lactic acid which chemically exfoliates the skin,’ she said.
5. Make sun protection just as important as cleaners, exfoliants and masks
Skinstitut expert Zoe Devine told FEMAIL that women scrimp on the most important step in the skincare regime – protection.
‘The sun is the single most detrimental factor that will induce premature ageing in the skin, and will contribute to age spots, pigmentation, uneven blotchy skin and overall skin damage,’ Zoe explained.
Zoe added that skin damage and ageing often occurs from incidental sun exposure, such as hanging the washing or walking the dog, rather than occasions with planned sun exposure.
‘Additionally, it’s the UVA rays (not UVB) that will result in premature ageing,’ Zoe said. ‘These rays penetrate deeper into our skin and do not invoke a burn response like UVB rays, making them a silent assassin for our skin.’
