It is a common misconception that a person is either beautiful or not. That’s not true! What you’ll read here can help you be more beautiful. Being beautiful is a lot more than having a nice looking face; you must be a great person as well.
Put your favorite lotion into a small sample jar or an empty lip gloss pot. This perfectly portable container can be stashed in your purse, car, travel bag or even your desk drawer at work. When your face starts getting dry, add a small amount of moisturizer to it.
Be careful with fake eyelashes; some people have allergies. You can test for an allergic reaction to the glue by applying a little to your arm. Make sure that the test area is covered properly.
To give your medium-to long-length hair a quick boost of volume in the morning, turn your head upside down, then apply a spray-on product like mousse or serum to add volume. Aim for the roots, then scrunch your hair at the crown and sides. Turn right-side up, then use your fingers to smooth the top layer.
Splashing cold water on your face can help reduce the frequency and prevalence of pimples. This is because it shrinks the size of your pores, making it less likely and less possible for them to get clogged, and clogging usually results in the appearance of a pimple. So to keep yourself pimple free, splash cold water!
Get an even, natural looking spray tan by investing some time preparing your skin before applying the product. For best results, don’t shave or use any other forms of hair removal the day you plan to tan. Exfoliating your skin for several days beforehand will also help you achieve streak free results.
If you have problems keeping wild and unruly brows tamed, you can keep them under control by spraying a brow brush with a bit of hairspray or clear brow gel, then gently combing your brows into place. For added shaping, you can even use a very small dab of Vaseline.
Daily exercise is extremely important when battling the signs and symptoms of aging. Exercising on a daily basis will help you stay limber and healthy. This is a must-have for any beauty routine. You need to exercise at least 15-20 minutes every day! The type of exercise doesn’t matter so much. It could be cleaning your house or taking a run.
A handy beauty tip is to add a little nail polish remover to your nail polish. This helps to thin the nail polish out and make it last a little longer. It is also a good technique to use when your nail polish is a little older and has started to thicken up a bit.
Vaseline massages lead to stronger nails. This encourages nail growth because your new nail is being fed. Also, when you polish your nails, use a top coat.
If you are looking for that natural shine from your eyebrows and lashes, petroleum jelly is a great tool to use. Apply some at bedtime, every single night. When you wake up, make sure to remember to wash it off. This will keep your eyelashes and brows shiny, all day long.
Keep the back of your head top priority when styling your hair. This area is harder to style and if you’re tired once you get around to that area it can ruin your whole look.
For those days when you have skimped on sleep the previous night and it shows in your eyes, skip lining or applying mascara to your lower lash line. Put the focus on your lids and upper lashes, and you are less likely to accentuate dark circles, making you look even more tired.
If you are a makeup addict, designate the first day of each month as a “no makeup day.” That way, the facial skin can breathe and stay healthy. You will feel refreshed after giving your skin a break.
You’ve heard it’s important to exfoliate, but you don’t need to spend a lot of money on expensive loofah bath mitts or scrubs. Any drugstore, grocery store, or dollar store sells inexpensive kitchen sponge/scrubbers (where the rough side is green and the sponge side is yellow). These sponges work great for body exfoliation – but please don’t use the green side on your face.
One common form of eczema, keratosis pilaris, appears as a rash of small bumps on the back of the upper-arm area. They are seen more so in the wintertime because the air is drier causing dry skin. Try exfoliating and then moisturizing the affected area.
Wearing heavy foundation or powdery makeup is not a good look for faces over 40. It accentuates the drier character of the skin. If your face is 40 or older it’s better to use a lighter touch. If your skin is fairly even-colored you may be able to skip foundation entirely. Foundations should be very light in weight.
When you’re styling your hair you’re going to want to do it in sections and always start in the back. It’s hard to get to the back, so you should begin there. Arms tire easily when blow-drying hair, so you should start in the back.
You wanted to make your skin look great, but that self-tanning lotion you tried was a loser, and now you have streaks all over your body. To correct this condition, put baking soda on a wet washcloth and scrub those stripes away.
If you want that shiny look on your legs, but don’t want a greasy feel to them, just use your regular lotion, and gloss it up a little by adding a small drop of baby oil. This will give you luster and softness, without the resulting greasiness of the baby oil alone.
Everyone has something beautiful about them that they can tap into. No matter if you have your doubts, the piece that follows is great for helping you find your true beauty potential. Instead of focusing on your imperfections, concentrate on positive things.
