Beauty Techniques and Tips on Maintaining A New Fabulous Look
Though the process may seem overwhelming at first, the first step is to start familiarizing yourself with various products and beauty treatments. The advice in this article will help you sort out what you need in creating the regimen that suits your lifestyle.
If your nail polish is becoming thick and sticky, consider adding a little nail polish remover to the bottle. Add a tiny bit, then close the bottle and shake vigorously. Adding nail polish remover will allow you to use the nail polish a few more times.
Before bed, put a swipe of Vaseline in your eyebrows. This will add shine to your eyebrows, and make them look better. However, be careful with the Vaseline, as getting it elsewhere on your skin can lead to acne and clogged pores.
Give coconut oil a try, instead of spending a lot of money on a expensive moisturizer. Virgin coconut oil easily penetrates the skin providing soothing moisture, while at the same time reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, it is useful in treating skin problems like eczema and acne due to its anti-bacterial properties.
If you use a blow dryer to style your hair, use a styling product that protects your hair from the heat. This product, which helps hair to dry quickly and prevents split ends, can be found at stores such as Wal-Mart or Target. It smells great and helps lock in the moisture.
A little handy tip is to combine foundation with a little moisturizer, as it will make your foundation last longer. This also provides you with a healthy glow versus a “cakey” appearance and adds SPF to your skin.
Do your nails always get scratched and chipped after you paint them? One way to help prevent this from happening is to apply a top coat of clear gloss to your manicure. Be aware that a top coat is not the same thing as clear nail polish. Don’t purchase clear polish – remember to buy top coat.
Peppermint oil and water can be combined for use as a mouthwash. Add a single drop of peppermint oil for each ounce of water used. Start by boiling the water, and pour the oil drops into a ceramic container. Add boiling water for the next step. Using a clean cloth, such as a handkerchief, cover the container, then allow it to cool. Pour the liquid into a bottle that has a lid that fits tightly. Use in place of store bought mouthwash.
Honey is a great addition to your beauty regimen. There are many benefits from honey, both when you put it on your skin and when you ingest it. Topically, mix with sugar to make a very effective scrub. Putting honey into your dry skin lotion will help to improve moisture retention. Adding honey to shampoo helps your hair look shiny and soft.
As you can see, there are quite a few beauty regimins out there, but they share many of the same roots. They just vary in the types of products and techniques. Take the time to explore your skincare choices and to determine which products work best for your skin.
