Whether we like it or not, we live in a society that judges us based our outward appearance. Luckily, there are steps we all can take to look better.So whether your goal is better hair, better skin, better makeup, or just an overall better appearance, this article is here to help!
Invest in an eyelash curler. Many people fail to realize how much better their eyelashes look with the use of a good eyelash curler. Curling them help enlarge the eyes and make them appear brighter. It is also possible to buy heated eyelash curlers that are said to provide a long-lasting curl.
Let your hair air dry as much as you can to keep it protected from heat damage. When you are using a blow dryer combined with a straightening or curling iron, you are doing a lot of damage to your hair and scalp. To dry it, use a dryer on its lowest heat setting. Your hair will retain a softer, silkier look for much longer.
Have some Vitamin E around. You can use it for all sorts of things. Vitamin E is great for keeping skin soft and supple. Also, you can apply it to your nails to prevent your cuticles from getting rough.
You can adjust your hair’s style and color to better accentuate the shape of your face. A cut with sleek long lines that lands below your jaw but above your shoulders works best. You can also use lowlights or highlights to frame your face. They are really flattering and pull attention to the features on your face.
Drink enough water every day for healthy looking skin. Without sufficient water, your skin can become dull and wrinkled. You can combat this problem by making sure you drink at least eight glasses of water each day. If you do not enjoy water, add in some lemon or cranberry juice for some taste. Drinking enough water will keep your skin healthy.
If you want to stay beautiful, keep your skin healthy, and feel good, drink lots of water! 5-8 glasses of water a day is great, and even more is always good if you can manage it. Drinking plenty of water helps with bad or dry skin and many other ailments.
If you want to improve the quality of your eyes, use eye drops. This can prevent redness and dryness from taking place too. If you stare at a television or computer screen for several hours a day, eye drops may be just what you need to feel better. Have a bottle ready in your pocketbook, glove box or desk, and apply it two or three times over the course of your day.
For long, healthy nails, massage a bit of petroleum jelly into the skin around your nails at least once weekly. This will help your nails grow longer and stronger. Be certain to use top coats which will prevent nails from chipping, when you paint your nails.
Exfoliating your body prior to applying tanning lotion or spending time in a tanning bed will extend the life of your tan! Since skin sheds, it’s best to do as much of it as possible before getting that great tan so you can keep the glorious glow even longer! Any natural exfoliant applied a day or two before tanning will do!
Try a loofah in order to eliminate skin imperfections. Loofahs exfoliate and freshen up your skin as they buff away blemishes, leaving you smooth and glowing. Combining this with an exfoliating body wash will give you excellent results! Use a loofa twice weekly for optimal results.
Cover up your roots. If you are in between trips to the hairdresser and your roots are showing cover them up with mascara. For lighter colored hair use a little extra hairspray and dust with a gold colored eyeshadow. This will cover up roots until you get your hair colored again.
You can spend big bucks on special dandruff shampoos containing salicylic acid for your dandruff and/or flaky scalp. But did you know that salicylic acid is, in fact, aspirin? So you can skip the expensive shampoos. Just take a regular uncoated aspirin or two, crush it to a powder, and mix it with your shampoo. Let it sit on your scalp for a minute and you will find it has the same result as more expensive treatments.
Keep lotions handy for emergency events. You might need a quick fix at a moment’s notice. Lotion can not only immediately fix dry skin, it can also fix a frizzy hair emergency. Smooth your hair down after rubbing a tiny bit (a dab the size of pea) into your palm.
Keep a small tube of hand cream in your purse to use as a hair tamer on a bad hair day. In the summer, use a tiny amount of hand cream, and run it through your hair; the tips of your fingers will tame the frizz. In the winter, put a dime-size amount of hand cream on your hands, and smooth it over your hair to eliminate static.
For the most natural look when shaping your brows, avoid plucking hairs above your brows, instead removing stray hairs below your brows. Plucking hairs above your brows makes it too easy to remove too much hair, resulting in sparse brows or an unnatural “surprised” look. Step back from the mirror and check your brows as you pluck, to ensure you aren’t removing too much hair.
