You may have mastered a blowout, but you may not want to try every beauty routine at home. Some of them may have serious side effects if not done by a professional. So according to cosmetologist Nandita Das if you are a DIY person, you can try every other beauty routine at home but these.
Skin tag removal: Blood supply to the skin tag is interrupted by tying it off with a thread or suture. However, it may not be a good idea if you try to remove skin tags on your own. Trying to nick a blood vessel can cause extensive oozing.
Waxing: There is a right and a wrong technique to wax, and if you are not doing it properly, you can cause serious harm to your skin. Waxing can burn your skin and also remove the top layer of your skin if done wrong. So leave the hair removal bit to the esthetician.
Extraction of blackheads: Trying to extract that blackhead at home can lead to inflammation and infection. So if you have got those blackheads or cystic acne, leave it for the dermatologist to treat it.
Balayage: The idea of balayage is to look intense and natural at the same time, but if you are doing it at home you may not get the right balance of colour. However, if you still insist on dyeing your hair at home, it is best that you stick to an all-over colour.
Lash dyeing: Did you know that you can dye your hair at home to tint light lashes? However, applying dye on your lashes without any training can spill the chemicals into your eye. It is best that you take an appointment at a salon if you want to darken your lashes.
