Try a night-time application of Vaseline for your feet. This softens them and makes them smooth, almost as if you had just come from having a pedicure. Start rubbing your feet every night before going to bed. After you apply the Vaseline, don some socks before you tuck yourself in for the night.
Apply cream to your eyes every night. The skin around your eyes is delicate, and not as thick as the skin elsewhere on your face. This makes the skin around your eyes more prone to be lined and dry. Keeping the skin moist is a simple solution to that beauty problem.
Keep a few particular beauty products in your fridge. You definitely want to do this in summertime! By keeping your skin care products in the refrigerator, you will prolong their use, as well as be able to apply them even in humidity or heat. Keeping them cool will also give you skin some relief in hot temperatures.
Honey needs to be included in your beauty bag. Honey can really benefit your skin when consumed. When mixed with sugar, honey can be applied directly to your skin and used to exfoliate. Putting honey into your dry skin lotion will help to improve moisture retention. Adding honey in with your regular shampoo will leave it shiny, manageable and touchably soft.
If you want to improve your overall beauty, avoid caffeine. It can add years to your looks, make you appear to be tired, and also make you jumpy and nervous. Limit your intake of coffee or tea to a single cup per day. Green tea or decaf coffee are great alternatives to the normal offerings to alleviate caffeine intake.
If your favorite color nail polish is getting empty and a bit tacky, add a few drops of nail polish remover to give it new life! You don’t have to throw away a half empty bottle of nail lacquer, just mix in a small amount of regular remover, shake well and your old polish will work like new again.
To get even more mileage out of your favorite eye gel, keep it in the refrigerator! The ingredients in eye gel work hard to restore and protect the delicate skin around your eyes and keeping it cold enhances the refreshment factor ten fold! The cold will also work immediately to reduce that dreadful puffiness!
Do you enjoy how powdered mineral makeup looks, but you can’t use it because it causes your skin to itch? If so, then search for a formula without bismuth oxychloride. This chemical compound is irritating to many women and they assume that all mineral makeups contain it. However, many do not, so seek out those mineral makeups that forgo this ingredient.
A great way to accentuate the upper lash line and not create an overly spidery fringe is to apply a strip of the false lashes that are used for your lower lashes. Apply from corner to corner and because they are shorter than usual falsies, they will thicken the lash line and not cause excessive elongation.
Your beauty regimen should be a daily affair. If you break apart those days you need to care for yourself, you really only need little 10 minute breaks. Don’t try to overload yourself or you will lose motivation. Kept your treatments short and easy if you want to make them into habits.
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.
Enhance your eyes by doing work on your eyelashes. Many women just apply mascara and go on their way. If you take the additional second to curl your eyelashes prior to applying the mascara, you will accentuate the eyes better than you would if you just apply the mascara.
Believe it or not, as you age, your skin tone will change along with your hair color. If you continue to wear foundation, be sure to check it against your actual skin color to be sure that it’s still a true match. Your skin will change in the same way that your hair changes – the melanin levels adjust – and in this way, you’ll assure a true match as your skin matures.
Keep some fabric softener sheets on hand for beauty emergencies. Fabric sheets can be used to tame a static skirt that wants to stick you your hose. It can do the same for wild hair. Another thing it is good for is running through your hair to quell obnoxious odors like smoke.
After waxing any part of your skin, it is important that you do not take a hot bath or shower right away. This can cause irritation because waxing leaves your pores wide open. Try waiting at least an hour before being exposed to any type of hot water at all.
Used coffee grounds are a great way to exfoliate for your hands. Once cooled, put the coffee grounds in a plastic bag, and keep them in the refrigerator. Rub about a teaspoon of grounds a couple of times a week, then rinse, and apply hand cream as usual. Coffee grounds work in much the same way as when you exfoliate with sand-based products, and your hands will feel silky smooth.
