Each of us is unique in the way our skin operates and how it deals with elements, both inside and out. We all have different diets and live in various places where the climate is either nice or harmful to our skin.
But there are a few things that are good for all of us to use as beauty tips, which will enhance your routine and help you look fresher and more well-groomed.
One is to exfoliate your skin on a regular basis. There are ones you can buy that really easy to use, and you can get them pretty affordable. I am in love with No7 brand one right now! It is called Total Renewal Micro-dermabrasion Exfoliator I love it!! So easy to use, I use in the shower to wash my face with. Got to do it anyway, right? 😀
Unless you have skin problems which require medical attention, exfoliation is one beauty tip that can get rid of dead skin cells that make your skin appear dry and dull. It doesn’t do much good to lather your skin with moisturizer when dead skin is present.
Another beauty tip that all of us can benefit from is to groom your eyebrows. I feel it’s how your brows look, that can really help your overall look. You can go from looking bushy to beautiful in just a few moments, helping really bring focus to your eyes. There are many ways to groom brows – plucking, waxing and threading – so choose one you prefer. I have done waxing and plucking them myself, but never tried threading. Have you?
Rest is another element that’s essential to glowing skin and bright eyes. That’s why it’s called beauty sleep. Your bodily cells renew themselves when you rest and help you look refreshed during the day. I have read that your skin totally renews itself every 21 days and that taking care of your skin by getting enough sleep really helps.
Alcohol and cigarettes aren’t conducive to anyone’s beauty and can significantly harm your skin. The toxins which are contained in cigarettes not only affect your lungs – they’re brutal to your skin. Alcohol causes drying of the skin. I quit smoking years ago, but I see now what it has done to my face over time.
If you have trouble getting your beauty sleep, try some things to help you relax before bedtime. Deep-breathing exercises, avoiding heavy meals and alcohol, and a warm bath with some added aromatherapy oil can help you get in the mood for a good night’s rest. There is nothing like a good book to help you get ready for bed!
They say your hair is your crowning glory, and you can boost the strength and beauty of your hair by eating protein-rich foods which increase the keratin (structural component) of your hair. It’s also good for your nails. Eggs, nuts, meat and seeds are all filled with natural protein that’s good for hair and nails. They say Biotin is good for your hair and nails, so I am testing it out right now.
Another beauty tip that can enhance everyone’s natural glow is exercise. It boosts your circulation, providing enhanced mental acuity, helps with sleeping better and can make you a happier and healthier person.
Finally, all of us can benefit from protecting the skin from the elements. Sun, wind and cold can dry out the skin and make it itchy and pale. Always wear sunscreen with SPF15 or higher and moisturizer, and hydrate your skin and body by drinking plenty of water.
So what you think? Do you agree or disagree with these beauty tips?
