Welcome to the world of beauty! It is a very big world, complete with all kinds of tools, accessories, and so much more. The fact that beauty is a very personal thing, can make it seem a bit impossible to find what will work for you. The tips below can help give you some suggestions.
For added impact and eye-opening, beautifully curled lashes, use a heated eyelash curler. If you would prefer to use a regular eyelash curler, you can create a similar effect by giving your curler a quick blast of a few seconds with your hairdryer. This will help to hold the curl and prevent smudging.
Gently brush your lips with a soft toothbrush. This will help you remove dead skin cells from your lips and make them soft. You should then apply Vaseline or another type of lip balm to moisturize your lips and keep them soft. You can do this every day or every other day.
Make your nail polish last longer. You can make your nails look like you just had a manicure and last longer by using a base coat, 2 coats of color and a top coat. This will provide your nails with a glossy look that will last for at least a few weeks.
Give your face a monthly beauty treatment. You do not need to go to a spa to get your skin in its best shape. You can, instead, give yourself a complete facial at home. Start with a product to exfoliate, follow with a mudpack, next apply an astringent, and finish with a deep moisturizer.
Keep to a schedule for maximum beauty benefit. You do not have to schedule everything, but you do need to schedule your meals. Studies have shown that people who are consistent with their routines concerning food and drink, look years younger, and live longer, than people who are sporadic with their eating times.
Go on a detox diet once a month to maximize your beauty routine. You may not realize how many toxins are building up in your body on a daily basis. If you do not remove them regularly, they just sit in your body, and may later negatively affect your health.
Remember that fragrance rises. Scents rise. When applying perfume or scented body mist, put it lower on your body. Do not apply too much by putting a little everywhere. Just apply a little around your ankles. The scent will rise without being as overpowering as some perfumes tend to be.
Bump up your hair color. If you have dyed your hair and the results aren’t as dramatic as you like you can fix this by adding a box of hair coloring to your shampoo. Lather it into your hair and let it set for 5 minutes, then rinse it out.
Add some Epsom salts to your beauty regimen. Epsom salts can be used to soothe your muscles and also as a laxative. Mix them with water and lavender to create a paste. Apply this paste to any problem areas that you have and leave it on overnight. Your skin will be improved dramatically.
If you have discovered little white bumps under your eyes, know that these are called Milia and are quite common. They are a harmless form of a cyst caused by dry, dead cells being trapped under the skin. You can try exfoliation or use a moisturizer that includes an exfoliant with vitamin A to help them disappear, and prevent them in the future.
To get the best results from your styling products, don’t apply them to soaking wet hair. The water in your hair will dilute the products, rendering them less effective. Before applying any products, remove as much excess water from your hair as you can. You’ll see a change in how your products work immediately.
For a more dramatic eye look, apply liquid eyeliner. Your eyes can really dazzle and pop more with liquid eyeliner. When you choose a brush, find one with angled bristles to encourage clean lines.
If you’re concerned that your freshly painted nails will smear, you can protect them with a thin film of some type of oil. Either put a drop of olive oil on your palm and rub it over the nails, or even easier, use a can of olive oil cooking spray and give each finger just the quickest touch of cooking spray. The oil will form a protective barrier that will keep the polish from smearing.
You can spend big bucks on special dandruff shampoos containing salicylic acid for your dandruff and/or flaky scalp. But did you know that salicylic acid is, in fact, aspirin? So you can skip the expensive shampoos. Just take a regular uncoated aspirin or two, crush it to a powder, and mix it with your shampoo. Let it sit on your scalp for a minute and you will find it has the same result as more expensive treatments.
Skin care is vital if you want to maintain confidence and swagger. What you’ll need is a defoliator and some kind of moisturizer for your skin. It is good habit to use a lotion on your body at least once a day. Use it twice if you have the time.
Did you get a look at yourself in a public mirror and notice how oily your skin looks? Don’t fret. Tear off a corner of toilet paper, and dab it on your skin to soak up the oil and shine. The hard toilet paper is an excellent blotter, and you look picture perfect again.
