Proper beauty regimens can be a lot of fun or a total headache. The tips here should help educate you in applying the perfect techniques to your beauty routine.
Moisturize the skin on your face. Even if your skin is oily, you should keep it moisturized. Make sure that your moisturizer has an SPF of at least 15.
Live in a cold, dry winter climate? Find a winter-specific conditioner for your hair to help lock in moisture and prevent that annoying static cling to EVERYTHING. Use in place of your regular conditioner as soon as you start to notice dry air and discontinue use in the spring time.
To deal with greasy or oily hair, shampoo every other day and just rinse with water on the other days. Sometimes people with oily hair try to combat the problem by over using shampoo. This removes to much oil from hair, which makes the sebaceous glands overcompensate to replace it.
Since unwanted facial hair can be embarrassing, remove it. You can easily do this yourself by using wax or tweezers. Or, you can have it done at a salon by a professional. Either way is an easy solution to help you feel better about your appearance.
Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler before you put on mascara. Doing so will open the appearance of your eyes, and make your lashes look longer. Start at the lash base, and hold the eyelash curler tightly shut for one second. Move the curler closer to the tips of your lashes and repeat. You will have a nice natural curved lash and not a angle.
Use eye drops to liven up your face. Tired eyes can bring down your whole look. Keep a small bottle of eye drops in your bag and use them periodically, especially when sitting in front of your computer. They will not only freshen up your eyes, but make them sparkle too.
If your hair is greasy or oily, an easy way to fix this if you don’t have time to wash it, is to use a bronzer compact or baby powder. Brunettes should carry bronzer compact and add to extra oily hair, and blondes should do the same with baby powder. This will temporarily hide your unwashed hair.
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.
To heal facial blemishes overnight, wash your face well and dab on a little pure tea tree oil before bed. You can also use tea tree oil full strength during the day or mix it with aloe vera gel for a light, natural, healing daytime moisturizer that tones and firms your skin.
You should keep a bit of honey in your makeup routine. Honey is beneficial, both internally and externally. Honey mixed with sugar is a great natural way to exfoliate your skin. When you put honey into lotion, moisture is retained. Adding honey in with your regular shampoo will leave it shiny, manageable and touchably soft.
Remove the arch from your eyebrows if you have a problem with dark circles under your eyes. The arch in your eyebrows can create a circular look around your eyes. This can exaggerate any dark circles you might already have. To remedy this, just tweeze your eyebrows so that they are straighter.
It should now be obvious to you that it takes more to stay beautiful than most people think. A proper beauty regimen requires much research an experience. But, all the time spent on beauty will pay off. By following the above tips, you are well on your way to feeling more confident and turning more heads.
