Most common mistakes made during beauty care

Not removing make-up before hitting the gym

If you’re exercising with a full face of make-up, you risk clogging the pores up with your products, especially as you wipe away sweat with your hands and fingers. Even if make-up is ‘non-clogging’, it can become irritating to the skin when mixed with the salt of sweat and eventually cause breakouts. Use make-up removing wipes for a quick solution before you hit the treadmill.

Waiting too long to tone and moisturise after cleansing

If you leave your skin bare for more than 60 seconds after cleansing, you risk dehydrating your complexion as the air sucks the moisture. Try and immediately use an alcohol-free toner and moisturiser, and leave your toner still slightly damp on the skin to keep it protected.

Exfoliating too much

While there’s no doubt that exfoliation can do wonders for a flawless complexion, too much can have an adverse effect. If you over-exfoliate you actually end up removing your skin’s protective barrier, exposing it to the sun damage and bacteria. Try to exfoliate a maximum of two or three times a week.

Forgetting to remove make-up before bed

It’s often hailed as the golden rule of skincare, and for a reason. The products begin to clog your pore and oil glands, making them appear larger – plus this can also lead to inflammation. Make sure to wash your face before bed each night to keep your skin looking radiant and healthy.

People who daydream might be far more intelligence, according to new research.

People who daydream are more intelligent, and may get distracted because they have ‘too much brain capacity’
Some people just have more efficient brains

For a long time, getting lost in thought has been seen as a symptom of inefficient minds: people who can’t concentrate or get distracted. But actually, it might show that your brain is simply too quick and efficient to avoid getting distracted, according to a major new study.

“People with efficient brains may have too much brain capacity to stop their minds from wandering,” said Eric Schumacher, the psychology professor who helped lead the study.

In the research, scientists put 100 people inside an MRI machine and had them stare at one specific point for five minutes. That allowed them to build up a picture of how their mind works when it’s at rest, by examining what parts of the brain were active.
“The correlated brain regions gave us insight about which areas of the brain work together during an awake, resting state,” said Godwin, a Georgia Tech psychology Ph.D. candidate. “Interestingly, research has suggested that these same brain patterns measured during these states are related to different cognitive abilities.”

They also had the participants fill in a questionnaire about how much they daydreamed in their daily life. The two could then be put together to work out quite how much a given person daydreamed, and how their mind worked.

They then compared that data with the results of tests that examined their intellectual and creative ability. They found that those who daydreamed more did better on those tests, and also that their mind appeared to be working more efficiently when it was in the MRI machine.

“People tend to think of mind wandering as something that is bad. You try to pay attention and you can’t,” said Schumacher. “Our data are consistent with the idea that this isn’t always true. Some people have more efficient brains.”

Professor Schumacher suggested that efficiency was actually what was leading people’s mind to wander. Because their brains are more efficient, and perform tasks more quickly, they end up finishing and moving on to something else.

He said that one way of testing whether that is true is whether you tend to zone out of conversations. If you can do that and then slot back in, without feeling like you’ve missed out, then your brain might be working more efficiently.

“Our findings remind me of the absent-minded professor – someone who’s brilliant, but off in his or her own world, sometimes oblivious to their own surroundings,” said Schumacher. “Or school children who are too intellectually advanced for their classes. While it may take five minutes for their friends to learn something new, they figure it out in a minute, then check out and start daydreaming.
