Wearing sunscreen is a fool-proof way to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. When you are comparing different brands and types of sunscreen, you should look for products that contain healthy skincare ingredients and antioxidants. These ingredients nourish the skin while protecting it, keeping it supple and youthful.
Make good use of light moisturizers prior to doing your makeup. This helps your makeup apply more evenly. You will not have a blotchy makeup appearance if you use moisturizer. When you use moisturizer, your makeup will last longer, in addition to making your face look fresh.
If you have a wide face, you can make it appear less wide by applying a rosy, creamy blush only on the apples of both your cheeks. However, you should be careful to not apply it too close to your nose or extend the color out past your ears as this will make your face appear even wider.
If you have a square face you can use a rose or coral brush to make it more soft looking. With your fingers, add a bit of cream blush to each cheek, then blend and smooth gently upward toward you temples.
Make sure your foundation matches. Before buying a new foundation, you should test it on the inside of your wrist. This skin is comparable to the skin on your face and will give you a good example of what this makeup will look like on your face and how it feels.
If you have problems keeping wild and unruly brows tamed, you can keep them under control by spraying a brow brush with a bit of hairspray or clear brow gel, then gently combing your brows into place. For added shaping, you can even use a very small dab of Vaseline.
Drink some milk everyday as part of your routine. This has been shown to help the entire body, including the skin and the bones. Milk provides you with protein and can help build muscle. It can also help you control your weight. Milk is an easy way to make your body beautiful.
Use a brow gel to stimulate growth in sparse eye brows. Whether you have naturally sparse brows or got a little overzealous with the tweezers, a brow gel can help grow hair back. Look for one that has added protein. In the meantime, use fillers to shade the thin areas.
Always apply a heat protectant spray to your hair before using a curling iron, flat iron or hair dryer. Heat can damage your hair, leaving it brittle, dry and full of split ends. Just like their name implies, heat protectant sprays coat your hair to protect it from the heat. This allows it to stay smooth, sleek and shiny no matter how you choose to style your hair.
To improve your lip color application, always apply lip balm first. The lip balm will leave your lips soft and moisturized, and will allow your lip color to go on smoothly. Try using a basic, untinted lip balm so that you don’t effect the color of the lipstick or lip gloss you’re using.
After you apply your lipstick, put your finger in your mouth, pull it out as you make an “O” with your mouth. This will remove any traces of lipstick that’s on your lips, which might get onto your teeth.
A proven solution to dead skin buildup is to use a pumice stone in the shower. The skin is much softer when it absorbs moisture from the shower so it will come off easier. Do not use a razor to remove dead skin, this causes more skin to grow back in the areas which it was removed.
If you suffer from chronic, dry skin, you may want to see a dermatologist and get a microdermabrasion facial peel. Microdermabrasions are able to improve skin’s functioning and appearance in a very short amount of time. One treatment will help your skin to feel smoother and will improve your skin’s elasticity. Although one treatment helps, for the best results you should schedule at least 6 treatments.
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.
Love the feel of waxing but hate the pain? When waxing at home, a half hour before doing the wax, apply a tooth-numbing cream to the areas that are going to be waxed. This will numb the skin temporarily and make the waxing much less painful yet will not damage or hurt your skin.
