Beauty can imply a lot of different connotations depending upon whom you ask or talk to. Everyone knows that the inside counts most, but you need not neglect your outer appearance. Take some time to pamper yourself, and look your best using the tips below.
If you allow your hair to air dry as much as you can, your hair will not suffer from heat damage. Combined heating tools like hair dryers and flat/curling irons can majorly damage the scalp and hair. If you must use a blow dryer, set it in the lowest, least damaging setting. By doing this, your hair will stay soft for years to come.
Have Vitamin E on hand. Vitamin E has multiple uses. It is an easy way to keep skin looking healthy and feeling soft. Use Vitamin E on finger and toe nails and they will be nice and smooth instead of rough.
You want to avoid red eyes at any cost. After all, if you draw attention to your eyes with makeup but they’re irritated or inflamed, it defeats the purpose of applying the makeup in the first place. Keep a small bottle of eye drops or saline solution in your handbag. Anytime your eyes are tired from staring at a computer screen for too long, or out in the sun too long, eye drops can provide a quick pick me up to bloodshot eyes.
Exfoliate your facial skin gently before taking a bath, so that your skin can absorb moisture. Start at your toes and, in a circular fashion, work upwards to your scalp.
Honey should play an integral role in your beauty routine. Honey has many benefits for your skin. Mixing honey with sugar makes a fabulous skin exfoliator. Adding honey to your lotion will increase moisture retention. Honey added to shampoo makes hair soft and silky.
Makeup artists know that pink draws the eyes away from problem areas on the face. Tired, red eyes and acne outbreaks are just two of the problems that a set of pink lips can keep people from noticing.
Rosewater and cucumbers can be used to ease the puffiness and dark circles under your eyes. They both contain natural components which will not only lighten the under-eye skin tone but also cool your eyes. You can also apply rosewater or cucumber juice to your eyes to relieve dark circles; simply wet cotton pads with the liquid and then put them over your eyes.
If you have gorgeous eyelashes, it will help your appearance. Try using a curler on your lashes before you apply any mascara. You’ll get that terrific curl that turns heads.
After you apply your lipstick, put your finger in your mouth, pull it out as you make an “O” with your mouth. Doing this will remove lipstick from the inner parts of your lips – where it is likely to do nothing but get smeared on your teeth – without mussing the visible lipstick on the outside.
You need to wear sunscreen regularly to maintain the appearance of your skin. Sunscreen is especially popular during the summer, but for healthy skin, it’s important to wear it year round. In winter months, the areas of your body must vulnerable to the sun are your hands and face.
Being beautiful on the inside is what really counts when talking about what the true meaning should be. Although this is true, there is nothing wrong with wanting to improve your appearance. Improving your outer beauty allows your inner beauty to shine through. Follow these tips and learn how to do just that.
