Welcome to the world of beauty! It is a very big world, complete with all kinds of tools, accessories, and so much more. The fact that beauty is a very personal thing, can make it seem a bit impossible to find what will work for you. The tips below can help give you some suggestions.
While the skin on your face is relatively delicate, the skin all over your body is considerably thicker. Nonetheless, it benefits greatly from exfoliation. Use a body brush with natural bristles to brush your entire body before you enter the bath or shower. This sloughs off dead skin and also increases your circulation.
Brighten up your eyes with this natural look: apply a light, neutral-colored eye shadow to your entire upper eyelid. Look for sand, khaki, beige, or fawn colors. This will neutralize any redness on your lids, which can make you appear older and tired. Add drama by smudging a darker shade on the lids just in the crease.
To make close set eyes appear further apart, apply your eye makeup so it is heaver on the outer edges of your eyes. Use light eyeshadow on the inner half of your eyes and darker shadow on the outer half, blending the two together seamlessly in the middle. Then, to finish off the look, apply your eyeliner and mascara so that it is heavier at the outer corner. This will give the illusion that your eyes are set further apart.
Do you find that your nails become chipped and scratched after each manicure? A good top coat can help the life of your manicure. This is not the same as regular clear nail polish, so do not confuse the two. Get the top coat, not the clear nail polish.
Do you want clear, clean, healthy skin? Exfoliation is essential! Exfoliate your skin regularly to remove all the junk, chemicals, and dirt you expose yourself to every day. The internet has lots of great recipes for exfoliaters that clean your skin naturally and without costing you an arm and a leg, check it out!
Remember that drinking plenty of pure water is one of the best ways to stay beautiful. It cleanses your system and helps keep your skin moisturized, your eyes bright, and your joints well padded and flexible. Pure water can be considered a “fountain of youth”. Enjoying plenty of it will keep you beautiful throughout your life.
Peppermint oil mixed with water makes a really good, natural and alcohol free mouthwash. Use a drop of peppermint oil for every ounce of water you use. Boil water first, then put the oil drops into a ceramic or glass bowl or other container that is heat-resistant. Add boiling water to the pot. Place a clean cloth or towel over the container while cooling the mouthwash. Then decant the mixture into a bottle that has a lid which fits tightly. Now you have your mouthwash.
Avoid commercial “body butters” that contain chemicals, dyes and additives. All natural walnut oil or peanut oil make wonderful all-over body moisturizers. They are very inexpensive and are scent free. If you want scent, you can add the essential oil of your choice. After your bath, slather walnut or peanut oil on lavishly. Wrap up in an old terry-cloth robe and curl up with a good book or a movie while your moisture treatment soaks in.
