Looking great is almost always important, as it raises self-esteem and helps to bring out the best in a person. If you project confidence to others, they will be confident in you as well, and you will be taken seriously. Be as beautiful outside as you are inside by applying these helpful tips to your lifestyle.
Apply Vaseline to your feet before you go to bed. When you wake up in the morning, your feet will be incredibly smooth. Make this a nightly ritual for your beauty routine so it becomes a habit. Smooth the Vaseline over your feet, and then slip on a pair of thick socks. The Vaseline will work on your feet as you sleep!
Keep your skin cells turning over with exfoliation. Exfoliating your face takes off the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing the smoother, healthier skin underneath. If your facial skin is especially dry, you can exfoliate a few times a week. Exfoliating will let your face look more fresh and radiant, and will help to prevent oil and dirt buildup.
Use different colored eyeshadow, such as copper, yellow and apricots, to draw attention to your eyes. Look for mascara and eyeliners that are dark brown with hints of brick, deep purple, or maroon. These shades help your blue eyes stand out.
Before blow drying, spray your damp hair with a “hot spray”. This is sold in the beauty section of any big box store and many drug stores, and helps to prevent split ends. It also helps your hair dry more quickly. It smells great and helps lock in the moisture.
Always keep your eye and lip liners freshly sharpened. By keeping them sharpened, they will be clean and ready to use. Place the pencils in the freezer or the refrigerator to harden them, and then sharpen.
Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler before you apply mascara. This increases their perceived length and brightens your eyes. Beginning at the base, squeeze and hold the curler for a moment. Move it out a little and squeeze again. This gives a nice natural curve.
Try to avoid very hot water when showering or bathing. Hot water urges pores to open, and then natural oils escape. When you wash your skin, the essential oils are washed away as well. Try taking warm or lukewarm showers to retain your skin’s natural oils and keep it soft. This has the added bonus of reducing your monthly heating bill.
Honey needs to be on your beauty shopping list. There are many reasons to use honey in your diet and on your skin. Topically, mix with sugar to make a very effective scrub. Dropping some into a moisturizer helps your skin retain moisture for longer. Adding honey to shampoo helps your hair look shiny and soft.
Just caring for your hair and skin, along with exercising and dieting, can help you feel great. Put these tips to use to look and feel more beautiful today!
