Creating a beauty regimen that works for you can be difficult; there’s a lot to think about! The guidance found in this piece is invaluable when it comes time to develop your own routine.
Use petroleum jelly on your cuticles weekly. Since this feeds your nails, they should grow more quickly. Your cuticles and nails are also going to look healthier. Results will be almost immediate – the Vaseline really does make the nails look great very quickly.
If you have striking brown eyes, you can play them up by adding eyeshadow, liner, and mascara in colors that are especially flattering for your eye color. Look for rich, matte shadows in shades of green, copper, and blue. These colors add depth and intensity to your eye color, especially when topped with a few coats of navy mascara.
Cracked heels and dry, flaking feet are very unattractive, especially in sandals. To combat this problem, right before you go to bed, soak your feet in a warm water bath for ten minutes, coat them with petroleum jelly and then cover them with a thick pair of socks to lock in the moisture. In no time, you’ll have soft feet.
If you have fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and forehead, you should look for cosmetics with light-reflecting particles. These products, which are just more matte than shimmery, can reflect light in a way that appears to make the fine lines simply disappear. You can use this trick all over your face, or just in your laugh lines.
Use a misting spray to set makeup. After you are finished fully making up your face, lightly mist yourself with a sprayer. This will set your makeup, keeping it in place longer before requiring you to touch it up. This is perfect for long nights out or events such as weddings.
Do not pick or squeeze at your face. A simple beauty rule is to keep your hands off of your face, except to clean or moisturize. You run the risk of causing scars when you pick at your face. You can also transfer oil and dirt onto your face when you are touching it.
If you have dry skin, or older looking skin, you need to be exfoliating on a weekly basis. You should also do this if you are applying any kind of tanning lotion. You want to exfoliate first to get the most out of the tanning lotion you are using.
Bump up your hair color. If you have dyed your hair and the results aren’t as dramatic as you like you can fix this by adding a box of hair coloring to your shampoo. Lather it into your hair and let it set for 5 minutes, then rinse it out.
Blot oily skin. If you are out on the town and notice your face is oily, use toilet paper to blot your skin. This works as well as any blotting paper and will remove any excess oil you may have on your skin and give you a perfect flawless look.
Beauty is the combining of many factors into a single appearance. Skin care plays a large role in any effective beauty or grooming routine. Men tend to overlook skin care when they are grooming themselves. However, if they just spent a little bit of time on it they would appear more attractive.
Every beauty routine, no matter how different, shares some of the same fundamentals. The biggest differences are in the sorts of products required and the specific techniques employed. With the proper knowledge and a realistic budget, you can have the best beauty regimen possible.
