Beauty has so many possibilities as to what you can use, do, and how you can apply it to your own personal appearance. It is rare to find somebody that will appear just like you, so why not take advantage of that, and create a beauty regimen that works for you and only you? This article can help you.
When nail polish becomes sticky and thick, adding a bit of nail polish remover can be very helpful. Use a little bit, put the top back on, and shake it. This helps add a few additional applications for your nail polish.
No matter what type of skin you have, you need to wash twice daily with a mild cleanser. Be sure to fully remove makeup prior to cleaning your skin. Leaving on makeup will clog up your pores and cause skin problems.
Simply applying a coat of dark brown or black mascara adds subtle pop to your eyes. Brush away any stray crumbs of mascara and separate clumps with an inexpensive disposable mascara brush.
Emphasize the sharpness of your cheekbones by applying a shade of powder blush that is one shade deeper than your normal cheek color product. Using a blush brush, dab on a spot of the powder in the hollows of your cheeks just under the cheekbones. Remove excess powder, then blend in a circular motion.
To help your eyeliner last all day, apply a thin layer of eyeshadow in a matching color over the top of it. Most eyeliners have a tendency to fade or run throughout the day. This is particularly true for oil-based eyeliner pencils. You can eliminate this problem by brushing a layer of matching eyeshadow directly over the top of the eyeliner using a thin makeup brush. This helps to set it so it stays in place all day.
Be sure to wash makeup off each night before bedtime. Use a gentle washcloth and warm water or a makeup remover solution. Cleanse your face with other products thereafter. Make-up that stays on your face will clog your pores and cause acne.
Drink enough water every day for great skin. Wrinkles, dullness and dryness are the result of inadequate water. Reduce the chances of this happening by drinking a minimum of eight glasses of water per day. If you don’t care for water, use a splash of lemon or cranberry juice. Your skin will appreciate it.
Do not forget your hands need to be pampered too. Hands are often overlooked in beauty treatments. That is why it is said, if you want to know someones age, check their hands. In addition to daily treatment with lotion or cream, you should exfoliate your hands once a week.
Create an alcohol free, all natural mouthwash by mixing peppermint oil with purified water. Add one drop of peppermint oil for every ounce of water. You want to make sure the water is boiled first and then measure the oil into a ceramic container. Next, slowly add the boiling water to the container. Use a clean cloth to cover the container while it cools. Pour the mixture into a sterile bottle and tightly screw on the lid. Use it as mouthwash!
Use hydrogen peroxide to cure yellowed nails. Nothing is beautiful about yellowing nails. To fix this problem, soak cotton in peroxide and then wipe each nail for several strokes. Let it sit on your nails for a few minutes. Rinse your nails, and admire the lack of yellow coloring.
Hand lotion can be a great fix for a bad hair day! In the cold of winter when static has you looking electric, rub a small amount of lotion on your hands and gently pat your hair down. In the humid summer, do the same on the ends of your hair to tame frizz!
If you’re in between hair dresser appointments, and need to hide some roots, use dark mascara on black or brunette hair and gold eye shadow on blond hair! Nobody is perfect and if you’ve scheduled your hair salon appointment too far in advance to save your roots from showing, brush them lightly with appropriately colored mascara or combine hair spray and blond shades of powder to conceal those roots until you can see your stylist!
Isn’t creating your own personal beauty regimen a lot of fun? As you have seen in this article, there are a lot of ways this can be done and no two techniques or products will yield the same results. There are also lots of customizable options that can work with your skill set and budget.
