In the past, beauty tips were geared towards only women of a certain age. Nowadays, everyone wants to look good, no matter their age. Genes only play a small role in beauty. With a little effort on your part, any number of beauty tips can work in your favor.
Keep a bit of your favorite moisturizer in a small container such as an empty lip gloss pot. This teensy container is easy to stash in your handbag, glove box, overnight bag or your desk drawer. Put a little bit of lotion on your face if you are feeling dry.
Never skip exfoliation when it comes to facial care. If your skin is dry or highly sensitive, you can exfoliate your face anywhere from one to three times per week; any less and you are missing out on an opportunity to reveal healthy skin cells underneath the top layer. Taking care of your skin by exfoliating it frequently gives your face a radiant, shiny appearance. In addition, your skin will be cleaner and less oily.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder! Trees on your block can be beautiful, and so can the person whom you love. Watching for moments of beauty is a great way to stay uplifted and maintain a successful way of life.
To play up the color of your beautiful hazel or gorgeous green eyes, choose darker neutrals that create contrast against lighter eyes, shades that have a red base to bring out the green, or other complementary shades. The most enhancing colors for hazel and green eyes are silvery and shimmery shadows in all hues of purple, silver, and light browns.
If you plan on going out on the town immediately after work, you can use a big fluffy brush to add a nice powdery finish over any oily places. Highlight your cheekbones just by applying a small amount of shimmer powder on the apples of your cheeks.
A “hot spray” is a great investment if you wish to protect your hair from the harsh heat of hair dryers. All major grocery stores carry this item in their beauty sections. The purpose of the product is to stop split ends occurring in the hair, and will also speed up the drying time. Heat protective sprays can help prevent over-drying, and provide hair with a pleasant smell after treatment.
It’s a good idea to keep your make-up in the refrigerator, in a special container. You should at least do this in the summertime. Beauty products will last longer when placed in a cool dark location or the refrigerator. In addition, your face will love how cool and refreshing they feel on the skin.
Use honey in your beauty regimen. It has many benefits when applied topically and eaten. Topically, mix with sugar to make a very effective scrub. Putting honey into your dry skin lotion will help to improve moisture retention. You can make your hair softer and shinier by adding some honey to your regular shampoo.
Petroleum jelly will make your feet soft and smooth, as a long as you apply it regularly. Most of those skin softeners on the market today are quite expensive, so use a simple remedy of petroleum jelly to get those feet nice and soft in a relatively inexpensive way. Apply about a tablespoon (warmed slightly to soften) to your feet after your bath and put on cotton socks to help the oil soak in. Do this several times a week for ultra soft feet.
Genes aren’t all that it takes to be beautiful. You can enhance your own beauty by just putting in some extra work. It can be quite effective to put a bit of effort into improving one’s looks, as long as those efforts are based on good advice. Hopefully, you can use the tips here to maximize your beauty efforts.
