Many people are looking for different things to add to their beauty routine because they want to feel beautiful. There are many different tips and tricks over the years you have heard but may have forgotten. This article contains tips and tricks that will help you look and feel more beautiful.
Wash your face before going to sleep. This will remove all the impurities and dirt from the day. Use a makeup remover first, to remove your makeup, then use a face wash. If you don’t cleanse your face before bed, your pores can get clogged and cause pimples or spots.
If you use heated styling tools like curling irons, it’s best to use conditioners and other products that are heat-activated. Using these tools daily can damage your hair. Using hair products which contain heat protectants can reduce the amount of damage that the appliances cause to your hair and make it look shiny, too.
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.
To reduce red tones in your skin, use a green based concealer. Because green and red are opposite from each other on the color wheel, the green tones in the concealer will cancel out any red tones in your skin. However, keep in mind that you only need to use a very small amount of concealer to counteract the red. If you use too much you can wind up looking green instead.
If you ever run out of concealer you can turn to your foundation! Simply turn the cap of the foundation over and you will find a thicker, more condensed collection of it which you can use in a pinch in place of your regular concealer. Simply dab your finger tip in the cap and pat the foundation under eyes or over any other blemish!
There is a very fine yet very important line between vanity and taking care of yourself. It is important that you stay on the correct side of this line. Beauty should be a small part of your daily routine and if it is becoming an obsession then you should try to rethink your priorities.
For a boost of sun protection for your everyday products, look for foundation and moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or higher. Sun damage causes fine lines, wrinkles, and even skin cancer, so the extra dose of protection from products you use anyway can help keep your facial skin looking younger longer.
If you find that your feet are dry and scaly looking and feeling, try using a petroleum jelly product to treat them. Apply a generous amount on your feet and cover them with thick socks at night before you go to bed. Your feet will absorb the moisture out of the petroleum jelly and will quickly look and feel much better.
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.
