BEST BEAUTY ADVICE WE HAVE EVER HEARD
A woman is most beautiful when she smiles
Hydrate from the inside out
One of the simplest and most effective beauty advice is to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. Water is not only beneficial for weight loss, when you drink the recommended amount of water in a day, you are washing out toxins and adding hydration to the epidermis (skin).
Although you are most probably using a moisturizer on your skin and if not therefore should be, its always best to treat problems from the inside out.
Did you know “studies have shown that dry skins tend to age faster than oilier skins” You need to keep your skin as hydrated as possible to prevent premature lines and wrinkles especially in the sensitive eye area.
BE A NATURAL BROW BEAUTY
Don’t go all tweezer happy – Full brows are much more flattering.
I am not saying let true nature take in course and leave alone, certainly tweeze those stray out of place random hairs where necessary, then fill in your brows with a pencil one shade lighter than your natural brow colour. This will create a softer more natural effect.
Using the same shade can look quite harsh.
APPLY SUNSCREEN DAILY
While mo9st children try to wiggle away from their parents as they cover them with sunscreen on holiday, at the beach or even here in Northern Ireland (I know, I know we don’t exactly get a summer as such, but believe it or not those harmful UV rays can still penetrate through those thick clouds) , I never did!!
My Mother has survived malignant melanoma and the best beauty advice she ever gave me was to stay out of the sun and to wear sunscreen every single day. I now make sure almost ALL of my products have SPF in them, from my moisturizer, my lipstick and my foundation.
Lemons are great for the skin, I would start my daily ritual off with a glass of hot water and a slice of lemon. Great for waking up your system in the morning also really beneficial for detoxifying and cleansing your system.
Yet did you know that they are great for the skin undiluted as well! Used gently on the skin they remove surface dead skin cells and help ro reduce age spots.
DUNK YOUR NAILS TO DRY
We have all been there watching another episode on Netflix whist we have placed one self still, decide to be productive and paint our nails (its a woman things double tasking, must be in our blood) only to realize post painting the uncomfortable urge to visit the bathroom overcomes you.
If you have no quick dry product lying around, dip your painted nails in a bowl of ice cold water to help them dry faster. It really works!!
I love this wonder product, it makes my lips smooth, great affordable price, comes in a handy handbag size container and can be used anywhere.
What I use it for often and find great is to mix with a cheap body lotion to give my legs a nice sheen.
In the winter months I find myself putting Vaseline on my tootsies and then placing a pair of cotton socks on before bed and in the morning I have beautiful soft feet.
KEEP HAIR IN PLACE
If you have trouble getting your hair clips and bobby pins to stay in your hair this technique should help…..
spray the clips with dry shampoo right before slipping them in, the product givesa the clips a slightly tacky feel so they wont slide out, whether your hair is thick or fine.
PERFECT YOUR FAKE TAN
I think us ladies are always on a mission to perfect our false tan application although without allowing for prep time its never going to be easy to achieve. If you haven’t allowed yourself time to properly prep even to follow this simple easy rule you should find an more even result.
For perfect fake tan, apply a little moisturising lotion to bony or areas prone to dry patches :- ankles, knees, wrists and heels allow the lotion to absorb in and then apply your tan.
The moisturizer will act as a barrier so the tan is diluted and doesn’t stick to the dry areas resulting in darker patches.
MAKE LIPSTICK LAST
The key to long wearing transfer proof lipstick is layering.
First – Apply colour directly to your lips
Next – Separate a two-ply tissue and hold one sheet against your lips whilst dusting translucent powder on top
Next – Remove the sheet and apply another layer of colour
Finally – Blot one last time with the sheet and you are good to go for hours!!
What a wonderful health staple.
Not only do I take a spoonful of this every morning you can also use this as a face mask once a week.
Also great for sore throats and upset tummies.
GET BEAUTY SLEEP
Turns out beauty sleep isn’t a myth after all, make sure you get enough rest and your skin will thank you for it and show the benefits.
I will finish off with a SURPRISE!
Concealer is only half of the battle when it comes to fixing flaws, to perfect your complexion and no matter what your skin tone may be, try lipstick in a warm pink.
It distracts peoples eyes from the blemishes and any other imperfections.
The secret to living well and longer is
LOVE WITH MEASURE
