1 Wrong rub:

The vigorous rubbing wet hair with a towel can disrupt the cuticle (the strand’s outer layer), can cause dry hair with split ends and can also promote frizz. Instead, wrap hair in a towel, lightly press with your palms to help it absorb as much water as possible, and then use a wide-tooth comb to eliminate tangles.

2 Face mist:

While you may think it as the best way to keep skin hydrated during long flights, the fact is, whether you’re in the air or on the ground, spritzing actually dries out your skin after the water evaporates. If you like using a facial mist, make sure it contains a humectant, such as glycerin or aloe vera, which locks on moisture and keeps your skin hydrated.

3 Too close:

While plucking eyebrows on your own, you may lose perspective if you are too close to the mirror. So, keep a distance of at least one foot from it. Also, the most flattering brow shape starts above the inner corners of your eyes; an exaggerated gap can create a scowling effect.
