Try putting Vaseline onto the nail cuticles every week. This will facilitate nail growth. It will also give you the advantage of having your cuticles and nails look healthier. Usually you will see results right away as the Vaseline goes to work extremely fast.
A few drops of rich sweet almond oil can be a very useful addition to your skincare routine as well as for use in emergencies. Use it on dry skin to infuse heavy duty moisture, or apply it to your cuticles to make them noticeably softer before a manicure or pedicure.
Apply a few tablespoons of sweet almond oil to your warm bath for a relaxing treat that will leave even the roughest, driest skin feeling supple and soft. You can also apply it sparingly to extremely dry and damaged hair – but only on the inch or so above the ends.
Keep wool pads that have been soaked in water, in your fridge. You can also keep teabags or cucumbers in your fridge. This is great if you have puffy eyes and can relieve them. Using this on your eyes will make you look refreshed and will last all day.
If your skin is looking dull from the winter weather, add some moisturizer with a warm gold or pink undertone. A cosmetic sponge will help apply the moisturizer to your face evenly. Do not do any more than this because you will end up looking shiny.
You can apply makeup to your wide-set eyes in a way that is very flattering and can make the eyes appear closer together. First, apply a dark brown or navy eyeliner to the inner corners of your eyes, then blend it with a sponge. Apply your eyeshadow at the inner corners, then blend well outward.
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.
For smooth, streak-free results, exfoliate your skin before applying self-tanner. Dead, dry skin can cause self-tanner to absorb unevenly. This can result in streaks, splotches and areas of color that are darker than they should be. You can eliminate this problem by exfoliating your skin before you apply self-tanner. By removing dead skin cells, exfoliating can help ensure that yourself tanner absorbs evenly and gives you a beautiful, streak-free glow.
Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler prior to applying mascara. This will make them look longer, and it will make your eyes appear alert and bright. Start at the lash base, and hold the eyelash curler tightly shut for one second. Then move it slightly toward the end of the lashes and squeeze it again. This gives your lashes a natural curl instead of a sharp angle.
It does not matter how tired or pressed for time you may be, you should never skip your cleansing rituals. Drier skin benefits from thick, creamy cleansers, whereas oily skin benefits most from cleansing balms, washes, or bars. All skin types can be dulled by buildup of makeup, sweat, and dead skin cells.
To open up your pores and have any blemishes removed, steaming is a wonderful option. Put your face over a bowl of steaming hot water with a dry towel placed on you head. Do this as long as you can being careful not to burn yourself. When you have had enough splash your face with cold water to close the pores and make your skin more firm.
Choose your eyeshadow based on your eye color to make your eye makeup really pop. If your eyes are blue, shades of brown are the most flattering. For brown eyes, try purple shadows like lavender or plum. If your eyes are green, golden shades are very flattering, as are many shades from the brown family.
Place thin slices of potato over your eyes to make them less puffy. Keep a slice of potato on the affected area for 10-20 minutes. As alternatives, you can use a cucumber, teabags or a chilled teaspoon. Doing this will cut down the puffiness and revive your eyes right away, making them look less sleepy.
Use a cleansing shampoo at least once a week. Your hair gets all sorts of buildup on it and the normal shampoo does help, but nothing really cleanses it better then a cleansing shampoo. After you do this, you will notice that your hair just feels softer and lighter. It also looks better too.
A proven solution to dead skin buildup is to use a pumice stone in the shower. The skin is much softer when it absorbs moisture from the shower so it will come off easier. Do not use a razor to remove dead skin, this causes more skin to grow back in the areas which it was removed.
