In our culture, we have made up many sayings that are about beauty. Beauty is only on the surface and skin deep. Beauty is not just about how you look, but it is also about how you act and treat others. Looks may be the cause for the initial attraction but it is personality that causes people to stay and get to know someone. This article will help you to actualize your inner beauty.
You could always fill a tiny jar with a favorite moisturizer. You can put this in your purse or travel bag. Simply dab a drop of the moisturizer on your face whenever your skin begins to feel dry.
Make your eyes pop with one or two coats of black or brown mascara in a waterproof formulation. Always keep some mascara on you so that you can retouch your eyes throughout the day.
Take care to prepare your skin by removing unwanted hair or stubble the day before you plan to apply your faux tan. Either wax or shave, but do so at least twenty-four hours before. That will help ensure the tan is nice, even and smooth.
Always use an appropriate moisturizer for your facial skin. You may think you do not need this if you have greasy or oily skin, but it can still be helpful to keep your skin looking nice. Good moisturizers should contain SPF.
We often strive for perfect skin, but our beauty can sometimes be interrupted by an unwanted pimple or any sort of blemish. If this has happened to you, a quick home remedy is to put a small blot of regular toothpaste on it. After applying the toothpaste, let it sit there for around 10 minutes. This should drastically reduce the appearance of the pimple.
Baking soda is a great home solution for making your hair shiny and smooth. Mix a little bit of baking soda in with your shampoo. Wash your hair as you normally would. This will bring back the luster in your hair.
If you are to use an iron on your hair, wash it with heat-activated shampoo or a similar product. Dry hair and split ends can result from using these styling tools daily. You can protect yourself from damage by using products that are designed for people who use heat.
You can combine peppermint oil and purified water to make an alcohol free, all natural mouthwash. Just one small droplet of peppermint oil in an ounce of purified water is all you need. To prepare your mouthwash, boil your water. Measure the oil into a heat-proof container that will hold the amount of water you’re boiling. It is important to add the boiling water next. Cover the container with a clean cloth (i.e. a handkerchief) and allow to cool. Empty into a container that has a tight fitting lid. Now you are free to use you new, homemade, mouthwash!
Use honey in your beauty regimen. Honey has multiple benefits to your skin, and some of these happen when you eat it. Honey mixed with sugar is a good exfoliation technique for your skin. Adding honey to a lotion can also boost moisture. This will also improve the quality of your shampoo and the look of your hair.
To make your manicure last longer, apply a quality top coat. A good top coat seals in the manicure and should be applied immediately after the treatment. Re-apply thin touch-ups every two days to keep the polish from peeling or chipping. A quality top coat is well worth the investment, as it can add several days to the life of your manicure.
If you cry and are concerned about your mascara running, try to catch the tears with a tissue before they ruin your makeup. Your mascara can survive your tears this way.
