Almost every woman – and more than one man – has a well-established personal beauty regimen. There is so much useful advice available in the field that the odds are very good that a few quick tips can significantly improve the effectiveness of a beauty routine. Here are some tips:
Remove hair at least a day before applying a tanning product. It doesn’t matter if you wax or shave. Just ensure you do this 24 hours prior to applying the tan. Waiting 24 hours makes it much more likely that your tan won’t have noticeable blemishes or rough spots.
When you nail polish starts to thicken up, you can add a few drops of nail polish remover to the bottle to thin it. Shake the bottle well after the addition of the nail polish remover to mix thoroughly and continue your manicure as usual. You should be able to get several more applications from the bottle.
Coconut oil is a nice substitute for expensive moisturizing products. Coconut oils sink into the skin easily, hydrate thoroughly and minimize wrinkling and other imperfections. It’s also been proven to be helpful with other skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis and acne due to the natural properties it contains.
A “hot spray” is a great investment if you wish to protect your hair from the harsh heat of hair dryers. Most discount stores and drugstores carry this versatile product that helps your hair dry quicker while also protecting against split ends. It works by locking in the moisture and smells terrific!
Pale or sparse eyebrows can be quickly and easily filled in to make them appear thicker and fuller. Use a disposable mascara wand to brush on dark brown eye shadow or mascara onto the brows, then comb it through with another disposable brush to smooth out the color and remove clumps.
For beautiful nails, put top coat on top of your nail polish every time. Topcoat will not only keep your nails looking shiny, it will extend the length of time between polishing. Avoid substituting clear nail polish for topcoat as it is not the same product, and will not provide the same benefit.
Choose products appropriate for your skin type. When you are selecting your facial products, whether they are lotions, toners or cleansers, make sure they are appropriate for your type of skin. Using products aimed at your particular problem areas can improve skin condition dramatically. Follow this up with a weekly face mask that purifies.
The color pink tends to draw people in, so if you place pink on your better features, you will find that people are less likely to notice your flaws. Puffy red eyes and acne will be less noticeable.
Use Vaseline on the outer edges of your eyes to make a shield. This will act as a waterproof barrier and will keep your makeup on around your eyes. This is especially good to use if you find your eyes are watery because of wind or any other factor.
Use Epsom salts within your beauty regime. Epsom salts have many health benefits like soothing sore muscles, and they can be used as a mild laxative. Add some of these salts to water as well as some lavender and create a paste. You will now be able to apply this to areas that are giving your trouble. Leave this on overnight. In the morning you will see improvement to your skin.
The processes, techniques and products that make up a personalized beauty regimen need not be expensive or time-consuming. Even though satisfactory beauty results depend on hard work, working smarter can save a lot of time. Tips like the ones above might be valuable keys to getting better results with less effort.
