Beauty Tip I Should Have Probably Already Known, But Didn’t

By Glinda

A little while ago I read a beauty tip that caused me to pull a Homer Simpson.

Forgive me for forgetting the source, but the article suggested that if you have a fancy schmancy facial cleanser that contains fancy schmancy ingredients, that you should leave it on your skin for a minimum of thirty seconds.

Because of course you want your skin to have the maximum exposure time to those special ingredients, and if you just apply it and quickly wash it off, then you aren’t really giving the product a chance to work in the way it was intended.

I tried it out while using my glycolic acid cleanser, and by golly, I did see a difference in the performance of the cleanser.

Should have been a no brainer, right?

    Can be taken too far. I noticed this with hair products: a conditioner that does an amazing job in two to five minutes does a greasy, nasty job if left on 20 minutes.

    @raincoaster- I got the impression that they were speaking specifically to skin products, and hear what you are saying.
