BTT – Tips On How To Stay Beautiful As You Age
Many believe that you either look attractive or you don’t. But that’s not true at all. This article will teach you how to bring out your beauty. Beauty is a lot more than pretty faces; personality is important as well.
Moisturize ahead of makeup application. Your makeup will go on smoother if you use a good moisturizer. You will not have a blotchy makeup appearance if you use moisturizer. This is good if you want to stay looking fresh and keep your makeup on for a while.
Take your time applying a fake tan. Make sure you have at least 30 minutes before going to bed or getting dressed. If you are in a hurry then wait to do it because you may get streaky results. It is important to make sure you properly apply a fake tan.
Use a gel or creme blush instead of powder. This type of blush gives your skin a glowing and healthy look. Gel and creme blushes are more transparent and blend more evenly than regular powder blush. You should rub this blush on your cheeks and blend upwards for a flawless finish.
Curl up your eyelashes before you apply mascara. This will make them look longer, and it will make your eyes appear alert and bright. Carefully squeeze and hold the device at the base of your lashes. Keep repeating as you work your way up to the tips of your lashes. This gives your lashes a natural curl instead of a sharp angle.
If you continually get acne only on one side of your face, it could be caused by your cell phone. Make sure you clean your cell phone regularly to remove dirt and oil. You may also want to try switching sides each time you talk on the phone to give the acne-prone side of your face a break.
It’s important to buy backups of any product you use a lot. Keep these in a place that is convenient, like your purse or at work. It is a great way to be prepared if you forget to put your makeup on or are in a serious rush.
To prevent buildup on your hair, use a clarifying shampoo once a week. Over time, residue from styling products and conditioner can build up on your hair, leaving it dull and lifeless. Using a clarifying shampoo at least once a week can remove this buildup, leaving your hair shiny, bouncy and full of life.
To whiten and brighten your teeth, add a little baking soda to your toothbrush once a week. Just sprinkle a little baking soda in the palm of your hand, dampen your toothbrush and press the bristles into the baking soda, add toothpaste and brush your teeth as usual. Don’t do this more than once a week since baking soda can be hard on your tooth enamel if overused.
Use peppermint oil and purified or filtered water to create your own no-alcohol mouthwash. Put a drop of peppermint oil in for each ounce of water. Boil the water first, then drop the oil into a ceramic container. Add the boiled water now. Use a clean cloth to cover the container while it cools. Empty into a container that has a tight fitting lid. You now have a great mouthwash!
Never ever apply a tanning lotion when you are in a hurry as this will always lead to disaster! This is one beauty item you really need to take your time with otherwise you end up looking freaky, so smooth the tanning lotion well over elbows, knees and feet and wash your hands thoroughly to avoid streaking. Use your tanning lotion well in advance of sleeping to prevent a complete botch job and well in advance of any special occasion, just in case!
If you suffer from hair loss or brittle hair it may be caused by a poor diet and a lack of essential nutrients. In order to ensure that your hair is strong and healthy consider supplementing your diet with the following vitamins: Iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin H, Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and Zinc.
For those days when you have skimped on sleep the previous night and it shows in your eyes, skip lining or applying mascara to your lower lash line. Put the focus on your lids and upper lashes, and you are less likely to accentuate dark circles, making you look even more tired.
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!
For soft feet, apply lotion or Vaseline and wrap in cling wrap before going to bed. You should then put socks on your feet. You should do this at least once a week for the softest feet. This will prepare even the driest feet for summer and wearing sandals.
Taking good care of your teeth will help you improve your looks. A beautiful smile will get you a long way in charming others. It will aid you in being successful in all aspects of your life.
Steer clear of using hair extensions to add volume and length to hair. These hair extensions are usually in textures and colors that will not blend properly with your hair and stick out like a sore thumb. Because the point of attachment is difficult to disguise, only use extensions when lengthening a ponytail or fattening, an up-do where it is not as noticeable and does not need to blend.
A quick touch-up with some makeup you have on hand can stop your roots from showing until you can get to the hair salon. If you have dark hair, you can use dark mascara to touch up your roots. Blonde hair roots should get an application of hairspray and then be dusted with a small amount of loose eye shadow of a gold color.
