Many people think that being beautiful is something you’re born with. You’ve either got it or you don’t, so they think. No one would deny there is a lot of truth to that. However, if you’ve ever seen some of these TV programs that show ladies before, and then after a pro gets through with them, you would have to agree that many very average looking ladies turned out to be pretty darned good looking by the time they were finished. So don’t think you have to simply give in to whatever your looks may be—because you don’t. Whether the ideas in this brief article help you or not, keep working on your looks, and keep searching for new ideas to try, and you will always see improvement.
Do not go to bed without properly cleansing your face. You’ve got to have heard this countless times before, but it’s amazing how many women either don’t believe it makes that much difference, or are inconsistent about doing it. Either way, if washing your face before going to bed is not a part of your daily skin care regimen, your looks will suffer for it. To remove all the impurities and dirt that your face has collected throughout the day, first use a makeup remover, followed by a mild facial cleanser. Failing to do so can lead to clogged pores, which can result in pimples and spots that could have been prevented.
Aging not only causes wrinkles, it will also change your skin tone, as well as hair color. From time to time it’s a good idea to check your foundation just to make sure it’s still the best one to use for your skin color. Over time you’ll find that you need to make some changes. It’s a small matter to tend to, but it can make a big difference if not handled properly.
For unruly eyebrows, try this little tip to tame them. Apply a small amount of hair spray to your eyebrow comb or an unused toothbrush, and then comb through your eyebrows. It will definitely help smooth them out, leaving you with a much better look around your eyes.
Should you find that you have small white bumps under your eyes, don’t panic. They are quite common, and are a type of harmless cyst that’s caused by dead cells that get trapped under your skin. Try exfoliation, or a moisturizer that includes an exfoliant, preferably with vitamin A, and it should not only get rid of them, it will help prevent them from coming back.
If you find that applying your own nail polish can be a daunting task, particularly when you have to use your non-dominant hand, see if this helps. In the evening, well before going to bed so they can dry fully, apply any normal two color coats, as well as topcoat. Don’t be concerned about your cuticles getting polish on them. When you take a hot shower in the morning, the extra polish that you may have gotten on your cuticles and skin, will easily rub off, leaving you with a professional looking nail job.
Any concerns about nails smearing can be handled by applying a thin film of oil. It can be a drop of olive oil in your hands and then rubbed on your nails, or to make it easier you can take a can of olive oil in a can for cooking spray, and give each finger a quick spray. The protective barrier it forms will make sure that your polish does not smear.
If you don’t have time to wash your hair in the morning, and you want to add some volume, try this tip. Primarily for hair that’s medium to long in length, place your head down and spray on either mousse or serum, aiming at your roots. Then scrunch your hair all over, lift your head back up straight, and use only your fingers to get the top layer smoothed out the way you like it.
Some people suffer from the false impression that beauty has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of person you are. While there is obviously some truth to that, any woman who doesn’t take the time to look her best, makes a statement about who she is—and it’s not a good one.
