Looking good can be a full-time job, or you can stay beautiful the smart way. There are a lot of ways you can look great without having to put a lot of money and time into it. Keep reading and soon you will know as much as a professional beautician.
Keep moisturizer handy to keep your skin looking vibrant. During the winter, your skin can become dry and brittle and a moisturizer will counter this. When you moisturize, you are able to prevent the dry skin that leads to cracks.
Take care not to over tweeze your eyebrows. Repeated over-plucking can result in areas where hair refuses to grow back, resulting in bald spots. If you have already developed bare spots in your brows, fill in the areas with a brow pencil temporarily while applying a product to regrow the hair.
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.
For beautiful nails, put top coat on top of your nail polish every time. Topcoat will not only keep your nails looking shiny, it will extend the length of time between polishing. Avoid substituting clear nail polish for topcoat as it is not the same product, and will not provide the same benefit.
Blot oily skin. If you are out on the town and notice your face is oily, use toilet paper to blot your skin. This works as well as any blotting paper and will remove any excess oil you may have on your skin and give you a perfect flawless look.
If you are dieting and want to shed some excess pounds, pineapple is a great food to eat. This particular fruit is so great due to its delicious taste and all the bromelain it contains. Bromelain helps digest fats, proteins, and starch. It can therefore help increase metabolism.
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.
A universal beauty standard for men and women is to properly groom your eyebrows. Taking proper care of eyebrows, and making sure you always have two is crucial. If your eyebrows join together or are just very thick, then use clippers to tame them.
Always remember that beauty is often subjective. If you have confidence and health, you’re already way ahead of the game. If you work hard, do not listen to the naysayers, feel good about yourself!
If you find that the nail polish that you thought was the perfect color is not the color that you wanted when you get it on your nails, consider adding a bit of nail polish remover to the bottle. It will change the color a bit and make it a little lighter.
If you suffer from a puffy face in the morning, place an ice cube in your mouth. Holding the ice cube to your mouth’s roof with your tongue will help to lessen troubles with puffiness. Then splash your face with cold water, and you will find that you have a remedy for that puffy look.
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.
If you have sensitive skin there are certain things you should avoid doing in order to keep your skin healthy and looking its best. Do not wash your face with regular soap, do not use harsh, overly strong cosmetics, do not use facial masks that dry out the skin, avoid the use of foaming cosmetics and do not use cosmetics that contain fruit acids or alcohol.
To make your lipstick stay on longer, you need to remember to blot them. You should do this after every single layer you put on, not just when you are finished. This will give your lips a more beautiful and long-lasting color.
To reduce puffiness in your face, splash it with cold water in the morning. This can calm your skin down and get rid of morning puffiness. You can also use an ice cube by sticking it on your tongue and holding it to the roof of your mouth. This eliminates the problem from the inside out.
If you have woken up with splotchy, irritated or puffy skin, then look to tea bags for a cure. No, not for drinking in this case, but to dab on the problem areas. Use a tea bag of green tea that has been steeped for a minute or two and cooled. You then dab it on your face, and let the natural antioxidants in the tea reduce the inflammation.
Looking great is an art and a science too. What you’ve just read can help keep you looking and feeling great. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to achieve beauty. You can do it yourself.
