Looking and feeling good is a goal that so many people have. Nothing is better than looking at yourself in the mirror and being proud of what you see. With the amount of information out there, it can be hard to sift through it all. So we’ve gone ahead and compiled some of the best tips and tricks here!
To give your lips a plumped-up appearance use a highlighting lotion or white shadow above the “cupid’s bow” on your top lip. The increase in fullness is an illusion that is created by the highlighted area of the lip reflecting light.
If you plan on going out on the town immediately after work, you can use a big fluffy brush to add a nice powdery finish over any oily places. Emphasize your cheekbones by sparingly applying a bit of shimmery powder to the apples of each cheek.
To brighten dull dry skin in the winter, find a highlighter or moisturizer with just a hint of pink or gold shimmer to it. Apply it with a cosmetics sponge on the brows and cheek bones to make your skin glow. It can make you look shiny if you use too much.
For the healthiest skin, hair and nails, eat healthy foods. Beauty is internal, but also based on diet. Be certain to include various nutrients in your diet. Eat a lot of whole grains and foods with protein, zinc, and iron for a healthy glow and good hair and nails.
Drinking an adequate supply of fresh water each day can improve the appearance of your skin and keep it healthy. When the skin is dehydrated, it will become wrinkly and dull looking. To avoid this situation, drink 56 ounces of water every day. If you are finding it difficult to drink eight glasses of water for lack of taste, add a little flavor with a splash of lemon or cranberry juice. Your skin will like it.
Do you find your nails get easily chipped and scratched once they are painted? Use a top coat; this will give your nails a shiny, glossy appearance for a week! Ensure that you do not use clear nail polish instead! Choose a product which says “top coat” on it.
Instead of using expensive toners, moisturizers, cleansers, and exfoliants, try more simple methods, such as a soft washcloth, pure castile soap, Aloe Vera gel, and a mild toner. Natural products are much better for your skin. If aloe does not provide enough moisture, add a little oil made of vitamin E. For a medicated feel, some healing tea tree oil can also be added.
Honey is a great addition to your beauty arsenal. While honey tastes great, it can help your skin in many ways, too. Try putting some honey on your skin with some sugar for an exfoliant. Using honey in with your skin lotion will aid in moisture retention. Honey added to shampoo makes hair soft and silky.
If you are really concerned about your beauty care, avoid caffeine at all costs. It can add years to your looks, make you appear to be tired, and also make you jumpy and nervous. Make sure you limit your tea and coffee intake to one per day. Drinking decaf and green tea is also a good idea to help your nutrition.
