How Much of These Beauty Products Should You Apply?
A dot or a dollop or something in between? When it comes to your favorite hair- and skin-care products, here’s how much you should be using.
Many of us have beauty-product portion distortion—the old “If a little is good, a lot must be better” thing. But knowing the proper amount to use is the key to getting the best results. Apply too small a blob and the product may not work at all. Too big and you could end up with greasy skin and hair, flaky patches, or even split ends. The servings pictured here are just right. (Don’t be afraid to adjust them—a bit—to accommodate your own skin and hair needs.)
A thing of beauty should be a joy forever—or at least until five o’clock. Here’s how to stretch the life of your makeup, hair, manicure, perfume—and more.
