Look Great, Feel Great: Perfect Beauty Tips
So, you want to try your hand at beauty, eh? Do you know anything about this activity? Do you know about all the different kinds of products that you can use? Do you know what entails a successful look? If these questions raise more questions than you can answer, try looking at the tips below.
These processes open up your follicles, leaving skin vulnerable. If you do something like this, you will probably have irritation. Another product that should be avoided directly after waxing or sugaring is scented products. They can cause irritation to the skin that is difficult to relieve.
For beautiful hair, add oil to your hair care routine. You can make your hair shinier, less frizzy, and mask graying by adding a few drops of oil to your hair every morning. Good oils to use are castor, rosemary, or sesame oils. All of them are cost effective and widely available.
Instead of applying false eyelashes that may fall off sometime during the day, use an eyelash curler. An eyelash curler will curl your lashes upwards and away from the eye, making your eyes appear bigger. Make sure you use the curler before applying mascara, or you’ll have to reapply it.
Get your sleep to keep yourself looking beautiful. Do not underestimate the power of scarce sleep to age your face, and your body. You need from six to eight hours of sleep a night to rejuvenate your body, skin, and brain. All are important elements in your overall personal health.
Cucumbers or rosewater will help alleviate dark circle under your eyes. These both have properties that are natural and will lighten the skin and cool your eyes. Moisten a cotton pad with either cucumber juice or rosewater, and then place the pads over your eyes for approximately 15 minutes.
Exfoliating your body prior to applying tanning lotion or spending time in a tanning bed will extend the life of your tan! Since skin sheds, it’s best to do as much of it as possible before getting that great tan so you can keep the glorious glow even longer! Any natural exfoliant applied a day or two before tanning will do!
To get the best results when bronzing your face, apply the bronzer only to your face’s higher planes. Apply the bronzer to your cheekbones, at the top of your nose and at the top corners of your forehead. This will give you a natural glow that will help illuminate your best features.
If you wear your hair in a ponytail often, move the position of the ponytail around every so often to prevent hair breakage. Constant stress and friction in the same part of the hair shaft can weaken hair, but placing the elastic or rubber band in different positions prevents the same spots from being rubbed over and over.
If you have found that mineral makeup powder irritates your skin, the culprit could be bismuth oxychloride. There are many brands available that don’t use this ingredient, and can be used by women who previously thought they could not wear this type of makeup.
Once you apply the lipstick, especially if its a dark shade, you want to put your finger in your mouth, pull the skin out then use your lips to make an “O” shape while sliding your finger around. This is an effective way to prevent any lipstick that ended up inside your mouth from getting on your teeth while leaving the lipstick on the outside of your mouth untouched.
If you are dancing in a club and start to sweat, an excellent way to remove it is simply using toilet paper. That rough toilet paper makes a great oil blotter at these moments. Simply press a piece of this paper firmly onto your oily skin, and you’ll have instant gorgeous skin.
Remember that excess sun exposure is not only bad for your skin, it is also bad for your hair. As a result of sun exposure hair may become dry, brittle, fragile and discolored. Sun exposure can tear protein bonds in your hair and make your hair permanently weaker. So, if you are going to be spending a lot of time in the sun, remember to wear a hat.
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!
If you are like many who have a problem keeping your eyeliner where it is supposed to be, try applying your eye shadow on top of the eyeliner with a damp cotton ball. It will help to set the liner and keep it in its place longer than it would otherwise.
If you have ever caught yourself peeling off nail polish because it had begun to chip, it’s possible you have done damage to your nail. When the nail polish is peeled off like this, there is a chance you are taking off a layer of the nail plate. This can cause your nail to thin out or crack. Opt for an acetone-free nail polish remover instead.
Never ever go to bed with your makeup on your face. This causes more damage than just ruining a good pillow case. Your pores will get extremely clogged and you will suffer many blemishes. Taking the time to wash your face each night will surely benefit you for many years.
Avocado makes a great body butter when used right. Use a fork to mash an avocado on a plate. Coat your body with it, and let it soak in for 20 minutes or so before you rinse it off. This will also help to inject moisture into your skin.
