Making yourself more beautiful on the outside to match your beautiful inside is easier than you think. Here are some tips and tricks to get you started on the road to beauty. If you are going to start a different beauty routine, or just add to an existing one, this is where you should begin.
To make small eyes appear larger, try lining your lower waterline with a white or peach colored eyeliner. By lightening the color of your waterline so it blends better with the white part of your eye, you can create the illusion that your eyes are larger and brighter than they really are.
Shadow and liner can do wonders to make your eyes sexy and striking, but it will all be for nothing if your eyes are red. Always carry eye drops with you. Use eye drops when your eyes are tired due to computer eyestrain, allergies or sun and wind exposure.
Maintain healthy skin by brushing your skin with a soft brush. This stimulates your oil glands, which will keep your skin moist. Brush in a circle from the feet up and then shower with mild cleanser.
You don’t need to buy expensive beauty products. Use natural products like aloe vera and white vinegar. Your skin will glow and look healthy with these natural beauty products. If aloe alone is not providing enough moisture, add to it some vitamin E oil. For a medicated feel, some healing tea tree oil can also be added.
If you have an overly pale appearance this can be due to iron deficiency. Take a daily iron supplement or eat a spoonful of iron-rich manuka honey. This will help you look healthier and give your skin a natural glow.
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.
If you’ve got a splitting nail and can’t get to the salon quick enough, grab a tea bag and bottle of clear nail polish! The strong fibers of a tea bag will act as a remedial mend until you can see a professional. Simply cut a small portion of the tea bag, place it directly on the torn part of the nail and top it off with a coat or two of clear nail polish and you are good to go!
To get the best results from your styling products, don’t apply them to soaking wet hair. The water in your hair will dilute the products, rendering them less effective. Before applying any products, remove as much excess water from your hair as you can. You’ll see a change in how your products work immediately.
If you have skin that tends to get shiny, you can do one of two things throughout the day. If you want to be fancy, you can buy a packet of face-blotting sheets. These smell wonderful and are impregnated with scented transparent powder. Or you can take a sheet of regular toilet paper and press, not rub, on the oily areas.
One of the most important things to remember is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you are sure of yourself and you take good care of your body, you are already a beauty. You shouldn’t let others affect how you feel about yourself.
Want brighter eyes? Use eye drops. It removes redness, which in turn, makes you look more vibrant. Keep one bottle of drops at home, one at work, and one in your purse, but remember not to use them more often than directed.
As you grow older, your skin, as a result of sun exposure, becomes darker and is not as light and bright as it was when you were younger. To ensure that your skin remains as bright and lively as possible, make sure that you exfoliate on a regular basis. Exfoliation will lighten your skin by getting rid of dead skin cells.
The oldest beauty secrets are often the best ones out there. For instance, a quick way to tighten your skin is to use lemon juice and egg whites as a tightening mask. Use one tablespoon of lemon juice combined with the whites of two eggs, apply it over your face and let it sit for 30 minutes. Not only will your skin look fresher, but it will feel great, too.
If you notice bumps on your arms, don’t be alarmed. It is just a type of eczema known as keratosis pilaris. Drier air in the winter time can aggravate this condition. These can be treated with body scrub and moisturizer applied to the area.
Massaging Vaseline into your cuticles will help your hands in many ways. It will make the skin much more hydrated and it will also encourage your nails to grow a bit quicker. Do this once a week every week and you are sure to see a big difference in the appearance of your hands and nails.
Try using neck stretches and good posture for a great looking neck. A healthy neck is as important as a healthy face. Do not treat the neck area the same as the face because both of them age differently. Over time the tendons in the neck shrink and the thin skin does not respond in the same way as the skin of the face does to peels and lasers.
After digesting this advice, you might try it all or you might try just one or two things. Regardless of what you decide, just making a small adjustment in your beauty regimen can tremendously impact your appearance. Good luck with your beautifying goals!
