Most people are concerned about their appearance and how they can better take care of their looks but they don’t know what to do. If you feel this way, you are not alone. The tips in this article will help you find what will make you become a more beautiful person.
If your polish seems to be getting thick and sticky, put some remover in it. Use a little bit, put the top back on, and shake it. This will give you a couple more applications of the nail polish.
If you have fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and forehead, you should look for cosmetics with light-reflecting particles. These products, which are just more matte than shimmery, can reflect light in a way that appears to make the fine lines simply disappear. You can use this trick all over your face, or just in your laugh lines.
Do you get scratches or chips on your nails after painting them? A top coat can help to prevent this issue, so it is a great short term solution. Although it might seem similar to clear nail polish, it is different, so don’t confuse the two products. Don’t purchase clear polish – remember to buy top coat.
If you already have skin problems, you need to be especially careful when selecting make up to not worsen the situation. Avoid make ups with any oil in them, and sparingly use moisturizers, foundations, eye makeup, and blushes labeled oil free. Also look for non-comedogenic products, which do not encourage the closure of pores.
You can replace costly designer beauty products with some castile soap, aloe vera gel, a toner and a washcloth. Natural products are much better for your skin. You can add a little vitamin E oil to the aloe vera gel for more moisture. If medicated toners are required, you can always add some tea tree oil.
Make a natural, alcohol free mouthwash using purified water and peppermint oil. Mix one drop of peppermint oil for every ounce of water. After boiling the water, add the drops of peppermint oil to a large glass container. Add the boiling water. Keep the container covered with a clean handkerchief or other cloth while it cools. Pour the mixture into a bottle that you can close with a lid. Now you are free to use you new, homemade, mouthwash!
Avoid commercial “body butters” that contain chemicals, dyes and additives. All natural walnut oil or peanut oil make wonderful all-over body moisturizers. They are very inexpensive and are scent free. If you want scent, you can add the essential oil of your choice. After your bath, slather walnut or peanut oil on lavishly. Wrap up in an old terry-cloth robe and curl up with a good book or a movie while your moisture treatment soaks in.
To heal facial blemishes overnight, wash your face well and dab on a little pure tea tree oil before bed. You can also use tea tree oil full strength during the day or mix it with aloe vera gel for a light, natural, healing daytime moisturizer that tones and firms your skin.
Remove the arch from your eyebrows if you have a problem with dark circles under your eyes. The arch in your eyebrows can create a circular look around your eyes. This can exaggerate any dark circles you might already have. To remedy this, just tweeze your eyebrows so that they are straighter.
Keep makeup removal wipes handy. People in the beauty industry use makeup remover pads if they mess up. These wipes are an affordable way to apply makeup like a pro. Use makeup remover wipes each and every day.
If you ever find yourself relly under time pressure, here’s a great tip on how to do a quick makeup job. Put some waxy lip balm on your fingertip. Then put a dark eyeliner on top of that. Smear it onto your eyes. Then finish with mascara. Apply lipstick. You’re ready to go!
A great tip to use when tweezing your eyebrows is to use restrain. Over plucking the brows can lead to bald patches and emaciated brows where hair only grows back irregularly. If this has happened, use a brow gel which is protein-spiked to encourage healthy regrowth and brow fillers that can shade in areas that are problems.
You may not have the time to do a full makeup job on your eyes. Should this be the case, try a quick smudgy eye look by combining a small amount of lip balm and a small amount of either mascara or eyeliner on the tip of your finger. Rub to an even consistency, then rub across your eyelids as close to the lashes as you can. A smudgy look is what you’re going for. Add two coats of mascara, and you’re ready to go.
Putting on your own nail polish can be very frustrating, especially when using your non-dominant hand. Next time, apply your normal two color coats and a topcoat in the evening (give the polish a few hours to dry before bedtime). Don’t worry too much if the polish gets on your cuticles. Then, in the morning, take a hot shower, and all the extra polish on your cuticles and skin will rub right off.
A patch of bumps located on the rear of your arms is a type of eczema known as keratosis pilaris. They are more often seen in the wintertime, because air is generally drier, which, in turn, causes dry skin. Use a good body scrub to exfoliate the area and then apply a rich moisturizer.
