What are your personal thoughts on beauty? Do you view everything you can on the subject and try to improve upon your own physical beauty? There are numerous resources available, such as magazines, videos, books and shows. So where do you begin with your own regimen? Try going through these tips to find your starting point.
Before bed, put a little natural oil, such as walnut oil, on your eyebrows. The nightly application makes your eyebrows look shiny and healthy. You should be careful to only apply it to the eyebrows and not your skin, so as to avoid acne outbreaks.
Make sure you wash makeup off your face before sleeping. Use a washcloth that is gentle, or find a makeup remover that is not harsh on your skin. After, wash normally. When you leave make-up on, pimples and rashes can occur.
For the healthiest skin, hair and nails, eat healthy foods. This is another way that beauty comes from within. A healthy diet needs to include all the right nutrients. Fill your meals with plenty of whole grains, iron, zinc and proteins for strong and healthy hair, skin and nails.
Before applying mascara, use an eyelash curler to curl your eyelashes. This will result in eyelashes that appear longer and the upward curl will make your eyes appear fresh and rested. Carefully squeeze and hold the device at the base of your lashes. Move it out a little and squeeze again. This will give your lashes a natural-looking curve.
If you already have skin problems, you need to be especially careful when selecting make up to not worsen the situation. Avoid make ups with any oil in them, and sparingly use moisturizers, foundations, eye makeup, and blushes labeled oil free. Also look for non-comedogenic products, which do not encourage the closure of pores.
Remember that drinking plenty of pure water is one of the best ways to stay beautiful. It cleanses your system and helps keep your skin moisturized, your eyes bright, and your joints well padded and flexible. Pure water can be considered a “fountain of youth”. Enjoying plenty of it will keep you beautiful throughout your life.
Keep your makeup light and simple. If you put on too much makeup you can stress your skin, and make yourself look older than you are. The best beauty is often the least complicated. Keep your routine to a quality moisturizer, followed with lip gloss and a good mascara.
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.
To make your manicure last longer, apply a quality top coat. Touching up your manicure every other day will keep it looking good; free from peeling or chipping. If you follow these steps, your manicure’s life should be extended by several days.
Putting on your own nail polish can be very frustrating, especially when using your non-dominant hand. Next time, apply your normal two color coats and a topcoat in the evening (give the polish a few hours to dry before bedtime). Don’t worry too much if the polish gets on your cuticles. Then, in the morning, take a hot shower, and all the extra polish on your cuticles and skin will rub right off.
Avoid using hot tools on hair every couple days to encourage the growth of strong and healthy hair. Flat irons, curling irons, and blow-dryers can harm and break your hair whenever you use them on a constant basis. Simply allowing your hair to air-dry a few times per week can help your hair recover from this harm.
You are very good at applying your makeup and washing it off at the end of the day. Are you as diligent when cleaning your makeup brushes? Chances are, you are not. It is advised to wash your makeup brushes at least once a month using a gentle soap such as baby shampoo. Lather them up gently, rinse, and let them air dry.
A way to keep your eye shadow from creasing, as much oil as possible must be eliminated from your eyelids. It is easy to do by using a pressed powder or and eye shadow base before applying the color. These help absorb any oils on the eyelids and keep the eye shadow from creasing.
Love the feel of waxing but hate the pain? When waxing at home, a half hour before doing the wax, apply a tooth-numbing cream to the areas that are going to be waxed. This will numb the skin temporarily and make the waxing much less painful yet will not damage or hurt your skin.
When you are filing your nails, be sure to only go in one direction. If you go back and forth you are sure to weaken the nail. The stress that this causes will damage the nail plate and make your nails more susceptible to breaking a lot more easily then they will if you go in one direction when filing.
If you have sensitive skin there are certain things you should avoid doing in order to keep your skin healthy and looking its best. Do not wash your face with regular soap, do not use harsh, overly strong cosmetics, do not use facial masks that dry out the skin, avoid the use of foaming cosmetics and do not use cosmetics that contain fruit acids or alcohol.
Always begin at the back of your head and work with sections of hair when you style. The back is the hardest area to work (and will take the most time) because it is the hardest to reach. When you blow your hair dry, your arms can get tired, so start with the hardest part first.
Now that you have an idea on where to start crafting your own personal beauty regimen, are you ready to start experimenting? Are you ready to apply what you have read to your body?
