We have all learned that beauty is a surface attribute. But, first impressions are impacted by your attention to certain factors. Therefore, you should ensure you are looking your best at all times. The article below has advice that can help.
Prior to applying an artificial tan, exfoliate your skin. This will remove any dead skin and make your skin smooth. It will allow your color to be absorbed evenly and prevent streaking. You will also find that it looks more like a realistic tan and lasts longer.
Exfoliating the skin on your face is highly beneficial. If you suffer from dry or very sensitive skin, you can safely exfoliate facial skin as much as three times each week. It is important to do this at least once. Your healthy skin cells are beneath the surface, so if you never exfoliate, they stay hidden. This will give your face a fresh, radiant glow and will prevent your pores from becoming blocked by oils and dead skin cells.
You need to test for allergies prior to applying false eyelashes. Test for a reaction by placing a small amount of glue on the back of your arm. Be sure to cover the area you test.
Wear colors that will bring out the color of your eyes. If you have green or hazel eyes, wear colors that are light brown, lavender and other shades of purple.
Occasionally, our self image suffers when we have a temporary blemish. Try blotting the blemish with a little bit of toothpaste. Make sure it is paste and not gel. Then let it sit for about ten minutes. This should make the pimple less prominent.
It doesn’t have to be a time-consuming process to freshen up after work and get ready for a night out. Giving your face a quick dusting with matte powder (a big fluffy brush works best) will make your skin look less oily or shiny. You can make your cheekbones have some emphasis with a gentle application of shimmery powder on your cheek temples.
If you need to soften the appearance of a square shaped face, use a coral or rose blush. Apply the blush to your cheekbones, then fan the color out and up toward your temples.
If you blow dry your hair you should use a “hot spray” before you start. You can find this in generic stores like Wal-Mart or Target. It’s used to prevent split ends and help your hair dry quicker. It smells great and helps your hair retain moisture!
Regardless of how you feel about beauty, looking your best has definite benefits. Try to use most of the tips given to you here. As you improve your outer appearance, you may find that you even feel better psychologically.
