Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder, as well as everyone who looks at her! You want to look your best, enhance your finest features and put your best face forward so read on for some fantastic advice and ideas on you to improve upon your looks in ways you’ve probably never thought of!
You must exfoliate your face often. Exfoliating your face takes off the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing the smoother, healthier skin underneath. If your facial skin is especially dry, you can exfoliate a few times a week. This will give your face a fresh, radiant glow and will prevent your pores from becoming blocked by oils and dead skin cells.
Find the perfect makeup for yourself. With so many different types to choose from look for makeup that is noncomedogenic. Avoid trying too many different types of makeup because this can irritate your skin. Instead, find one that works for you and stick with it.
Do not take hot baths or showers. This makes your pores expand, which allows skin oils leave. You end up washing them away. Use warm or tepid water, as this is more gentle on your skin, keeping it soft and healthy looking. This has the added bonus of reducing your monthly heating bill.
For a torn or split fingernail, use a teabag if you can’t run to the salon to fix it. You need to take the tea from the teabag first. Then cut a tiny piece off the bag, it should be large enough to cover the nail tear. Then put the trimmed out piece over the tear, and use a clear nail polish to paint over the whole thing.
If you already have skin problems, you need to be especially careful when selecting make up to not worsen the situation. Avoid make ups with any oil in them, and sparingly use moisturizers, foundations, eye makeup, and blushes labeled oil free. Also look for non-comedogenic products, which do not encourage the closure of pores.
Using a fake tanning lotion can make your skin appear more beautiful without getting any of the harmful rays from sunbathing or tanning. Make sure to shave or wax any hair that you don’t want on your body before applying any type of tanning lotion at least 24 hours ahead of time.
Using concealer is only half the battle when looking your best and fixing flaws. To have a perfect complexion, try using a lipstick in a warm pink. According to leading makeup artists, no matter what your skin type or tone, warm pink will distract people’s eyes from any imperfections and blemishes and keep you looking your best.
If you do not have a lot of time to spend on make up, you can still hide blemishes and dark spots. A concealer stick is a great way to cover up any spots or dark circles under your eyes. Put on powder over the concealer and you will look great by only spending a couple minutes of time.
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.
Taking care of your skin is vital if you want to look and feel healthy. Essential skin care products include exfoliants to remove dead skin and moisturizers to help skin elasticity. You should also use a good lotion several times a day.
You may be surprised to know that holding an ice cube in your mouth will help reduce puffiness in your face. Next, splash cold water over your face in the sink or in the shower. This will give you the extra help you need without costing a lot of money for products that claim they help.
Even if you have greasy skin, you should apply moisturizer to it, at least, when you go to bed. Oil on your face may lead you to believe that you have an excessive amount of moisture in your skin but that is not the kind of moisture that your skin needs, in order to remain healthy.
If you have an important meeting, take special care with your perfume. Keep the scent light and airy so as not to overwhelm. You should put a small amount behind your ears and on your wrists. This will assure that you smell great when you are hugging and shaking hands at the meeting.
Finding a new hair style that is different from what one usually does with their hair can not only give one a fresh look but enhance their beauty. A new hair style can attract attention from people who notice the difference and also frame ones face in a new way that may enhance beauty.
Give your hair a natural moisturizing treatment by rubbing a couple of tablespoons of olive oil onto your scalp, and then wrapping your hair in a towel dampened with warm water. After around 30 minutes, use shampoo to get rid of the oil (this may require multiple iterations) and check out the difference in your hair.
Your lip liner should match your lipstick color as closely as possible. By choosing a shade that is far too light or dark, you may end up with a ring-like effect around your lips.
