Beauty // How To Apply Perfume for Lasting Effect.

When you’ve splashed out on an expensive fragrance, the one thing that will usually be on the forefront of your mind would be how you can make it last all day.
Granted that expensive fragrances have lasting power, it wouldn’t hurt to apply your scent to the most optimum parts of the body in order to increase its ability to last.

1.       Hair
Spraying perfume directly on the strands of your hair would dry out the hair because of the alcohol content present in the scent, so instead of spritzing directly onto strands , mist onto a brush or comb and delicately pull through the hair. The fragrance would latch onto hair fibres and produce a long-lasting effect.

2.       Pulse Points
Pulse points are locations on the body where the blood vessels are closest to the skin. Body heat emanates from these spots and this helps the fragrance to heat up and diffuse into the air all through the day.
The pulse points are inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind the ears, belly button, inside elbows, back of the knees, wrists and ankles.

For more lasting power
*Apply perfume to hydrated pulse points just after a shower or bath. But you should first moisturize so that the perfume sticks to the moisturizer molecules rather than your pores, thereby keeping the fragrance alive longer.
*Allow your pulse points to dry without rubbing it after applying fragrance.
*Keep the bottle at about 5-7 inches from skin. I’ve personally had burns due to over dried out skin when I continually applied fragrance too close to the skin behind my ears.
