Top 5 Things Blogging Has Taught Me About Beauty

Top Five Things Blogging Taught Me About BeautyBecoming a blogger really changed the way I look at some things. It’s fair to say that it expanded my beliefs and knowledge. Also, there were things I already knew in theory, but somehow couldn’t get myself to do them. I’m still learning every day, but here’s a short list of what blogging has already taught me:

1. regular skincare routine is important: before I’ve discovered the world of blogging, my skincare routine was non-existent. Of course, even then I knew about essential skincare steps, such as cleansing, toning, moisturizing, but never actually bothered to stick to them. That changed when I started reading other green beauty blogs and writing Organic Beauty Blogger. It sort of inspired me to follow advice and experiment with my own routine to see what works best. It wasn’t as much for my own benefit, but so I could share my insights with the readers. I must say it worked out well, this regular skincare routine thing is probably what made the most positive change for my skin.

2. always remove makeup before bed: I have a feeling that I’m not alone in this, right, girls? It’s a common sin; however, I was able to overcome it by reading blogs and articles and by understanding why it’s bad practice to leave your makeup (even if it has all the healthy ingredients in it) on your face through the night. I started washing it off religiously every evening and have been doing this to the present day.

3. how to contour and highlight: these techniques were probably my favorite thing to learn. They are just so powerful when you know how to do them properly.

4. to always use a sunscreen: for me, sunscreen was a summer thing, something you need to apply only in Summer. I was looking for some information about SPF for my blog and imagine my surprise when I stumbled on an article explaining why it’s important to use sunscreen (or creams with SPF) all year round, especially for the face.

5. invest in skincare rather than in makeup: it’s pretty obvious that the healthier your skin is, the less makeup you need and the better it looks on you. However, in the past, I’ve spent a lot of money on makeup to conceal my skin condition (I have rosacea, which is now, thankfully, under control) instead of actually taking care of it. A few years back, I could only dream of using a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer, because my skin was so irritated and unhappy. I made the switch to natural/organic products way before I started to blog, however, blogging encouraged me to keep looking for more information and green beauty products that could help my skin. So happy I learned all these lessons.

Loved this post! Its amazing what we all learn from blogging 🙂 I agree with you on investing more in skincare than make-up. Before I would just buy loads and loads of makeup to cover spots and redness and now I have my skin looking great (most of the time anyway) and don’t even wear makeup most days 😀 xx

Oh lucky you! I still need some coverage for my red cheeks, but it’s nothing a tinted moisturizer or a bit of concealer wouldn’t fix.

I soooo agree with 2, 4 and 5! I definitely think it’s better to invest your time and money in keeping your skin looking its best than to spend hundreds on makeup. Great advice here 🙂

It is better indeed! It’s so nice to use makeup by choice, not because we need to.

I couldn’t agree more with the skincare part. I’ve never had bad skin, just some spots and redness here and there but since I switched to organic they are all gone. Especially the redness I had on my cheeks. Now I don”t ever use foundation most of the time just some concealer where I need it. And the important thing is not to buy pricey things but good ones. Just coconut oil and shea butter on their one are amazing!
As for sunscreen, I don’t use it all year round, just in summer… I’m too lazy to do that. ^^’

I absolutely agree with you on buying quality skincare products, which are not necessarily the expensive ones.

Completely agree – especially with 1 and 2! I always used to buy cheap and nasty skinscare products which made my skin feel horrible and which made it a chore to take my make-up off, but since I discovered organic skincare products it’s helped my skin and also made me more eager to use them every single day! I still have a lot to learn when it comes to contouring thought unfortunately! 🙂

Good for you for making such a great change! Contouring is so much fun, you’ll learn it in no time 🙂

I have learned a lot from blogging about organic beauty as well. I have learned: that makeup can be fun and non-toxic, that there are amazing products out there that can help heal my acne, and that blogging is a learning adventure that is such a a blast!
