Simple Beauty Ideas For Those “I Don’t Want To” Days
If you need to learn how to create the perfect beauty regimen, looking for a collection of advice on doing so can be a good idea. Here is a collection of tips to help novices turn into pros.
Unless you are suffering from severe acne, you should be sure to use a moisturizer that includes emollients, which help your skin to soak up moisture from the environment. Other ingredients, such as humectants, can actually attract moisture to the skin. Dry skin would benefit from a moisturizer with a heavy, creamy consistency.
If you are fighting an irritating, itchy and flaky scalp, you can use yogurt to remove flakes and keep your scalp itch-free. Simply massage a plain Greek or dairy yogurt into your scalp, then allow it to sit for no longer than 15 minutes. After you rinse, you should notice less flakes and itching.
Instead of spending too much money on a moisturizer, you can use coconut oil. Virgin coconut oil soothes the skin with deep-penetrating moisture; it can also delay formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Not only that, but it can also help treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne thanks to its natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
If your facial appearance is more square-shaped, use a coral or creamy rose blush which make your face look softer and appear less angular. Try applying your blush on the apples of your cheeks and fanning it out towards temples.
Use eye drops to liven up your face. Tired eyes can bring down your whole look. Keep a small bottle of eye drops in your bag and use them periodically, especially when sitting in front of your computer. They will not only freshen up your eyes, but make them sparkle too.
Put on lip balm every day. Lip balm is an essential ingredient in keeping your lips beautiful. You should apply it to your lips at night when you go to bed, and in the morning before you put any lipstick or gloss on your lips. Your lips will stay looking younger and fuller.
If you love a certain nail polish, and it starts to look a little dry or is about to run out, add a little bit of nail polish remover to the bottle. Shake it very well, and you will end up with having an easier time getting some more use out of it.
Using eye drops can make your eyes appear brighter. This will help to reduce redness and pain associated with dryness. Eye drops are excellent if you use a computer for long periods of time, as it will help to relieve any eye tiredness. Put a bottle into your desk drawer or purse, and use it no more than once every 4 hours.
Using a facial moisturizer is one of the best things you can do to enhance your beauty. Even if you have oily skin, it is still a good idea. Apply it every single night before going to sleep. If you have extra dry skin, it is a good idea to also use moisturizer in the morning as well.
To give yourself an instant facelift, just apply a streak of blush along the top of your cheeks. The color will draw the eye upward, giving your face a tighter, more youthful appearance. If you have pale skin, you’ll get the best effect from a pale pink. Those with darker skin should select rosy shades.
If you are dieting and want to lose weight, eating pineapple is a great idea. Pineapples contain a lot of bromelain, which is great news for dieters. Bromelain facilitates the digestion of fats, starches and proteins. As a result, your metabolism can be increased by consuming pineapples.
Hand lotion can be a great fix for a bad hair day! In the cold of winter when static has you looking electric, rub a small amount of lotion on your hands and gently pat your hair down. In the humid summer, do the same on the ends of your hair to tame frizz!
Here is a great and often overlooked tip that can greatly enhance one’s look. Groom your eyebrows, and make sure you can tell where one eyebrow ends and the next one begins. If you find that you have a uni-brow or really bushy eyebrows, you will do justice to your beauty if you keep them trimmed.
Putting on your own nail polish can be very frustrating, especially when using your non-dominant hand. Next time, apply your normal two color coats and a topcoat in the evening (give the polish a few hours to dry before bedtime). Don’t worry too much if the polish gets on your cuticles. Then, in the morning, take a hot shower, and all the extra polish on your cuticles and skin will rub right off.
When a woman reaches a particular age, they tend to be stuck with their beauty habits because they are used to it. As long as you’re content, this shouldn’t be a problem. That said, if you are trying to find a job or simply want to re-evaluate your look, then it’s time to ask a friend or hire a beauty consultant to give you some unbiased advice.
Let’s say you love your foundation color, but as your skin matures, it doesn’t moisturize like it used to. Adding some moisturizer to your regular foundation will achieve two goals: One, you will have a tinted moisturizer which will give you a sheerer more natural color. Two, your skin will be better moisturized.
Use a base coat, two layers of polish and a top coat to maximize the length of time that your nail polish will look great. This will give you the look of a professional manicure and keeps the varnish on the nail much longer than what one coat of polish would.
