The art of beauty is so much more than just simply “putting your face on.” It takes a great deal of skill, attention to detail, and accuracy to really make those products work for your body the way they should. The tips below can help you improve your beauty skills.
Allow your hair to dry naturally as much as you can to best protect it. Hair care accessories such as curling irons, hair dryers and straightening irons will damage your hair if used daily. If you must use a hair dryer, keep it on the absolute lowest setting. This will preserve your hair, keeping it silky soft, and preventing it from becoming frizzy.
Keep wool pads that have been soaked in water, in your fridge. You can also keep teabags or cucumbers in your fridge. This is great if you have puffy eyes and can relieve them. Using this on your eyes will make you look refreshed and will last all day.
You can narrow your full face by changing your hairstyle and its color. Your haircut should include sleek, long lines and the length should fall between your jawline and shoulders. You can also use lowlights or highlights to frame your face. These will flatter your facial features.
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.
Before applying mascara, use an eyelash curler to curl your eyelashes. Your curled eyelashes will not only look longer than they are, but the entire area of your eyes can be visually lifted and look brighter. Carefully squeeze and hold the device at the base of your lashes. Slowly move toward the front of your lashes, in a smooth motion, then squeeze once more. This provides a natural look.
Keep your skin, body, hair and nails looking great by eating a healthy, well-balanced diet. Providing your body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs is the most effective way to look your best. So, remember that beauty starts with healthy food choices while shopping for groceries.
Get your sleep to keep yourself looking beautiful. Do not underestimate the power of scarce sleep to age your face, and your body. You need from six to eight hours of sleep a night to rejuvenate your body, skin, and brain. All are important elements in your overall personal health.
Use cocoa butter on stretchmarks and scars. Cocoa butter is a beauty treatment with roots in ancient times. It has long been known to normalize skin-tone, and to make your skin more resilient. Cocoa butter has a small price-tag, and is available almost anywhere you can buy lotions or creams.
The art of beauty is one that can be enjoyed by everyone, but only those very serious into it will try to perfect their perfect beauty techniques every chance that they get. Now with more beauty knowledge to add to your “bag of tricks,” you can easily become great at it too.
