The extensive amount of face wash options can be overwhelming, there are lotions, milks, scrubs, foaming mousses, oils, wipes, motorized brushes, and more. However, even with all the advances in products, many of us are still sticking to the same face-wash techniques we grew up with. But now, you will know better. Educate yourself against these # mistakes you’re making and get squeaky clean skin.
Mistake 1: Wash and Go
Washing your face isn’t just a one-step process. Cleansers don’t usually remove all traces of makeup, so you’re in danger of leaving your pores clogged if you don’t remove makeup first. Use an oil-based cream, a cleansing oil, or even a makeup remover wipe to dissolve sunscreen and makeup. Then follow with lukewarm water and dime-size amount of cleanser on your fingers or a clean, damn washcloth. Rinse and dry with a soft paper towel if you’re acne-prone.
Mistake 2: Closing Your Pores
Sorry, ladies, but you can’t open or “close” your pores by massaging your face or splashing it with cold water. As a matter of fact, extreme heat can exaggerate problems like rosacea and redness. However, mild steam can help soften hardened oil in pores. So, it’s still not a bad idea to cleanse in the shower.
That said, mild steam can help soften hardened oil in pores, so it’s never a bad idea to cleanse in the shower.
Mistake 3: Picking Cleanser According to Skin Type
No matter what type of skin you have, there are certain ingredients that should never be in your face wash, including: fragrance, which can be irritating; parabens, since they’re potentially toxic preservatives; or harsh soap, it’s drying. If the cleanser fits that bill, it should work for any skin type, and the formula itself, whether cream, lotion, foaming, etc. is more of a personal preference. However, people with dry skin may prefer formulas with extra moisturizers, like glycerin or shea butter. And those with oily skin may want a foaming wash, since it leaves skin feeling superclean.
Mistake 4: Grainy Scrubs to Exfoliate and Smooth
A salicylic or glycolic acid cleanser is much gentler and more effective than grainy scrubs which are often too harsh on your skin. The thick grainy formulas can actually exaggerate the appearance of pores as well. Depending on your skin type and sensitivity, use the salicylic or glycolic acid cleansers once or twice a week, and adjust depending on how your skin is looking and feeling.
Mistake 5: Using Toner
An alcohol-based toner strips your skin of natural oils. Gentle toners calm the skin and balance pH levels, but most cleansers take care of this step for you.If you must use a toner, stick with gentle, alcohol-free versions.
Mistake 6: Brushing Your Skin Daily
A brush removes oil, dirt, and dead skin better than your hands can, plus it’s gentler than most exfoliating cleansers or scrubs. In short, they are great, but they should be used sparingly. Constant exfoliation can cause inflammation. In addition, make sure you rinse and air-dry after use to keep the brush bacteria-free.
Mistake 7: Spending a Fortune
You know those top-quality ingredients, like retinol or antioxidants? Don’t waste money on them for products that you’ll just be washing down the drain. Save the pricier ingredients for leave-on products like serums and creams and always read beauty product reviews before going to buy any beauty product, because they are most effective when concentrated on the skin.

Lucy & Louis Helps Kids Make Like-Minded Friends
For kids, it’s extremely important to cultivate quality relationships while growing up, and Lucy & Louis is focused on helping nourish these early friendships that can last a lifetime. Lucy & Louis is a hair salon in Canada that not only takes care of kids’ appearances with expert haircuts, but also organizes events where kids can meet their peers and play games that are both fun and educational.
“Our goal is to provide a place for kids to express themselves, grow and learn, and meet like-minded peers. We have animators who take care of the entertainment, and this way, parents can get some time off and have a date night or a self-care day to relax. At the salon, we play various games like Battleship, table soccer, basketball, board games, and more. We really try to integrate board games so that the experience can be educational. We have Monopoly and Guess Who? for example,” the Lucy & Louis leadership shares.
Lucy & Louis is loved by kids and parents alike. By making the hair-cutting process simple for kids, the salon is creating plenty of positive memories. “Kids always remember getting their hair cut for the first time. It changes the way they look, and when they are young, they are very impressionable. We try to make this a fun experience so their first experience with a haircut is a good one. Otherwise, it could really have a negative and long-lasting impact. We are getting a ton of positive feedback and reviews from parents saying their kids not only loved getting their hair cut but were even asking to go again,” a member of the team says.
Customer satisfaction is extremely important for Lucy & Louis, echoing the values of their owner company, TripleOne. TripleOne is a decentralized company where users from across the world come together to vote and invest in different ventures. Founded by James William Awad, a renowned entrepreneur from Canada, TripleOne is a pioneer in its own right. The company heavily invests in innovation and is always open to new ideas for businesses. Each user contributes as much as they like, and at the end of each month, they get paid according to that. Anyone can join TripleOne regardless of where in the world they live or their nationality.
Lucy & Louis is dedicated to creating the atmosphere of a “home away from home,” where kids feel supported and encouraged to express themselves. The experience doesn’t stop in the salon, though; there are home haircut kits available online for both boys and girls that include not only the necessary tools, but toys as well. Parents are raving about Lucy & Louis. The salon intends to keep innovating in order to keep them excited and is currently adding a new mural as well as improving their snack bar and waiting room. While COVID-19 initially slowed down business for Lucy & Louis, it is back on track and poised for its biggest growth yet.
