Beauty is mostly just a good way to describe taking care of yourself. If you are taking care of your body, your skin and your mind, you can’t help but be a beautiful person, and project that to the world. This article gives you some practical ideas of how to do that.
If you only have the time and money for a single beauty product, consider spending it on a flattering cheek color. A cream-based blush is easily applied using only the fingertips and can be thrown in your purse and applied quickly and with little to no effort at all. This is one item that you shouldn’t be shy about spending a little extra on.
Use Vaseline for your eyebrows. Apply it just before bedtime. It will make them look shiny and healthy. Vaseline can cause unsightly acne, so try not to get it elsewhere on your face.
Prior to going to bed, be sure to remove all of your makeup. Gently scrub your face with a warm washcloth. When you have removed the make-up, apply your regular skin care product. Make-up left on your face can result in blemishes that are very unattractive.
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.
Torn fingernails can be mended with tiny fragments of teabags. First, empty the tea from the bag. The next step is to cut out a piece of the teabag that will fit the torn area of your nail. Finally, place this piece on top of the tear, and paint over it with clear nail polish.
For shiny, colorful, rich, beautiful hair, it’s important to wash your hair regularly with a good, low-oil shampoo. This is the only way to effectively prevent dandruff and other hair-related ailments. Make sure to also rinse your hair out weekly with apple cider vinegar to wash away chemicals from shampoo.
Try to stay away from caffeinated beverages if you’re looking to improve your beauty routine. Caffeine has been found to make you look older and more tired while also giving you the jitters. You should not drink more than one cup of tea or coffee in a day. Drinking decaf and green tea is also a good idea to help your nutrition.
Your makeup applicators should be cleaned regularly to reduce infections. Use a gentle soap and warm water to rinse until the water runs clear. Rinse the brushes well, and towel-dry them. This preventive measure stops makeup and acne causing bacteria from building up.
Proper sunscreen use is vital to keeping your skin healthy and youthful-looking. Some people only apply sunscreen during the summer, but if you are going to stave off wrinkles, you need to apply it year-round. The face and hands are particularly vulnerable to skin damage during the winter months.
When applying a liquid liner, keep your eyes open to keep the line from looking uneven. Start by applying the liner in three dashes, one in the inside corner of the eye, one in the middle and one on the corner, then go back and connect the dashes for a smooth and beautiful line.
When going to the beach, use this trick to make your waist look narrower. With a white pencil liner, dot the shape of an egg on both sides, starting just below the rib cage. Then fill the egg area with a little self-tanner just one shade darker than your natural skin tone and blend it in.
To cover up a zit at the last minute, use a product containing cortisone or benzoyl peroxide. Apply the product to a cotton ball, and gently dab it on your pimple. This will bring down the redness and shrink the zit. This will allow you to easily hide the pimple with concealer.
You may not have stuck your finger in an electrical socket, but your hair frizzes might suggest you had. To tame these nasty beasts, you will want to add moisture to your hair. Stay away from hairspray as it has alcohol that dries the hair. Apply hair serum to damp hair to lock in the moisture, and keep uncontrolled hair at bay.
If you are running low on a discontinued color of nail polish, mix it with some polish remover to get more out of each bottle. Shake up the mixture and then use it as you normally would. It might be a little lighter in color, but it will be about the same.
Steer clear of using hair extensions to add volume and length to hair. These hair extensions are usually in textures and colors that will not blend properly with your hair and stick out like a sore thumb. Because the point of attachment is difficult to disguise, only use extensions when lengthening a ponytail or fattening, an up-do where it is not as noticeable and does not need to blend.
Being beautiful is nothing more than being the kind of person who knows that they need to take care of themselves. As this article has pointed out, most beauty tips and secrets are really about pampering your body and your mind so that the inner beauty that you already have can shine through.
