For many people the concept of beauty is based on what they see in magazines or on television. This is a bad idea, because what is on TV and magazines is not realistic. You need to create your own definition of beauty. Here you will find some suggestions to help you discover your own beauty.
If you need to soak up extra oil in your T-Zones, you can use blotting papers to quickly give your face a more matte appearance. These sheets often come in small, pocket-sized packets; many are offered with rice powder or in a powder-free option. The packets are very cheap and can be slipped into your purse or desk drawer.
Multiple research projects in the scientific world have found that symmetry is often associated with beauty. Try to maintain your symmetry when striving for beauty. Whether this extends to makeup for women or facial hair with men, make sure to keep both sides of your face looking similar.
For added impact and eye-opening, beautifully curled lashes, use a heated eyelash curler. If you would prefer to use a regular eyelash curler, you can create a similar effect by giving your curler a quick blast of a few seconds with your hairdryer. This will help to hold the curl and prevent smudging.
Use a highlighter or moisturizer with warm gold or pink undertones to add some life back to dull wintery skin. This glowing tone can be achieved with a subtle application that emphasizes the cheeks and brow. It can make you look shiny if you use too much.
Before putting on your favorite sandals for the summer season, take the time to moisturize your feet using Vaseline. Before bed, slather your feet with a thick layer of Vaseline and cover them with an old pair of socks. As you sleep, the Vaseline will penetrate thick, calloused skin, helping to eliminate cracks and dryness. The next morning when you remove the socks, your feet will be soft and supple so you can wear your favorite sandals with pride.
Renew nail polish with nail polish remover. If your favorite bottle of nail polish is getting a little thick, pour a few drops of nail polish remover into the bottle and shake. It will loosen the polish and thin it out, allowing you to get a few more coats out of it.
Apply cream to your eyes every night. The skin around your eyes is delicate, and not as thick as the skin elsewhere on your face. This makes the skin around your eyes more prone to be lined and dry. Keeping the skin moist is a simple solution to that beauty problem.
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.
Keep in mind not to focus on beauty in media like magazines or television. You must define beauty for yourself. This advice can help you look and feel better about yourself without making unrealistic comparisons.
