Are you creating your own beauty regimen for the first time? You probably don’t even know where to start. It’s no secret that creating a beauty regimen for the first time can be a bit intimidating. Below are some tips that can help to make finding techniques and products that work for you a bit smoother.
To keep your hair looking healthy, avoid washing your hair more than once a day. When you wash your hair too often, you end up stripping the hair of its natural moisture and oils, which ends up leaving your hair with a dull and lifeless look that is not ideal for men or women.
Apply a few tablespoons of sweet almond oil to your warm bath for a relaxing treat that will leave even the roughest, driest skin feeling supple and soft. You can also apply it sparingly to extremely dry and damaged hair – but only on the inch or so above the ends.
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.
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!
Select a curling iron, one size smaller than the curls you desire. This will help to ensure that your curls don’t get limp or fall out after you put all the work into curling them. They will be a little tight at first but after you finish, gently run your fingers through them to break them up, and then hair spray to perfection.
If your tendency to bite your fingernails is a nervous habit, try taking up a hobby that is sure to keep your hands busy and occupied during your downtime. This could be knitting, sketching, or even doing crossword puzzles. This can save your nails while you watch television, movies, or lounge around the house.
If you are new to using blush, try this method of applying this simple enhancer. Make a big, ridiculous grin in the mirror. The apples your cheeks make in this expression are where your first swipe of blush should land. Use the cheekbone to guide the rest of your swipe. This way, you will know your blush is properly applied to your face shape!
As you have seen, beauty regimens are not as scary as they might appear at first glance. Just think of all of the benefits they have and all of the fun techniques you can pick up along the way, along with all of the money it can save you on finding products that work with your body and budget.
