Looking great does not have to be a full time job. There are many ways to look your best without spending a lot of time and money doing it. Read on for tips from the professionals in the beauty industry.
Put your favorite lotion into a small sample jar or an empty lip gloss pot. This small and portable container fits nicely in your pocketbook, briefcase or desk drawer. Use a small amount of moisturizer any time you feel like your skin is getting dry.
There’s nothing that makes you feel more unattractive than than waking up with a pimple on your face! An effective home remedy for treating a pimple is to place a small dab of toothpaste on it. Don’t use the gel form – only regular toothpaste will work. Allow the toothpaste to sit in place for ten minutes, and then gently remove with warm water. Toothpaste should help calm some of the inflammation and redness associated with blemishes.
Fill a tiny sample jar or empty pot of lip gloss with your favorite moisturizer. This little container fits everywhere, like your work desk drawer, your handbag or an overnight bag. Apply moisturizer whenever your skin starts to feel dry.
Heated Hair Appliances
When you use heated hair appliances, use hair products that are made specifically for use with these types of appliances. Heated hair appliances used on a daily basis can damage your hair, if you don’t take the proper precautions. Heat-activated products can provide your hair with extra moisture, and help to reverse the damage caused by high temperatures.
Add some moisturizer to your foundation. This makes your foundation last longer. Also, with the foundation being slightly watered down, it will seem a lot less heavy. The added benefit is that you will now have sun protection in your foundation too if you used an SPF moisturizer.
Curl your eyelashes before putting on your mascara. This will result in eyelashes that appear longer and the upward curl will make your eyes appear fresh and rested. To use an eyelash curler correctly, surround the root of your lashes with the curler and clamp down for a few seconds. Then, you want to move the curler gently in the direction of the ends of your lashes, where you will squeeze it again. This gives a nice natural curve.
Never leave makeup on overnight! Just use a soft cloth and warm water, unless you want to try a commercial remover. After, wash normally. If your make-up is not removed properly, your pores can clog and result in acne.
