True beauty is not only skin deep. It requires proper nutrition, adequate exercise, and proper hydration. Once those basics are taken care of, you can find a variety of ways to enhance your outer beauty.
Wash your skin every evening and every morning with a mild facial soap. After cleansing, apply a moisturizer with a sun protection factor that hydrates your skin without clogging pores. You may need to try several different types of moisturizers before finding the one that works best for your skin. Avoid using products that contain harsh chemicals and alcohol because they will dry out your skin.
Use a shampoo and conditioner designed for your hair type. You can avoid drying out your hair by rinsing in cool water and following the product’s description for proper use. Avoid using excessive amounts of styling products and use hot styling tools only when necessary. Healthy hair looks great without being ironed and sprayed.
Use a foundation that does not increase oil production or clog pores. A foundation applied with a foundation brush will give your skin an even tone and smooth appearance. Use vegan mascara and eyeliner to accentuate your eyes and apply lip balm to create soft, smooth lips. Blush is a great way to accentuate cheekbones and add color to your face. Use eyeshadow colors that enhance the natural beauty of your eyes. Although these colors can be fun, do not wear eyeshadow that matches your outfit. Again, lipstick can be fun but all make-up should be appropriate for the occasion. Wear fun party colors, heavy smoky eyes and dark lip stain for an evening out, not for work.
Keep your nails well groomed. They should all be about the same length so use a good fingernail file to keep them under control. If you break one nail, file the others down to about the same length. Use lotion to keep your hands soft and to avoid rough cuticles and hang nails. If you prefer the way your nails look with paint, then paint them. Make sure your remove or repair chipped polish.
Facial hair is not attractive on women. Avoid shaving because hair grows quickly and you may end up needing to shave daily. Consider waxing at home going to a salon to have a professional remove the hair with hot wax. Laser hair removal is more expensive but it removes hair for a long time.
Maintaining a healthy, well-balanced diet with plenty of water is the best way to achieve long-lasting, natural beauty. Enjoy a variety of fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Get an adequate amount of protein while avoiding fat, sugar and high-cholesterol food. Nuts and lean white meats are both good sources of protein.
You should enjoy making yourself look more beautiful. It does not need to be a tough job. Just relax and do the basics plus the things you enjoy doing. Although painted fingernails are colorful, nails look just as good with a clear polish.
