Begin Caring For Your Skin Early To Stay Beautiful As You Age
Beauty Tips by Mary Ayres, Aesthetician, Hebe Medical Spa
If your lips begin to appear thinner with age, you can use this makeup trick to make them appear fuller and more plump: opt for a lighter, creamy lipstick in a neutral shade. The color should be formulated with a small amount of subtle shimmer and a lightweight consistency that will fill in lines.
If you already have skin problems, you need to be especially careful when selecting make up to not worsen the situation. Avoid make ups with any oil in them, and sparingly use moisturizers, foundations, eye makeup, and blushes labeled oil free. Also look for non-comedogenic products, which do not encourage the closure of pores.
You should always exfoliate thoroughly before using an artificial tan. There are plenty of benefits to using a synthetic, “tan in a bottle” product. You can maximize these benefits and make the treatment last longer by exfoliating first. This gives the artificial tan the ideal surface to latch onto and avoids wasting the product on dead skin you will soon slough off.
Never ever go to bed with your makeup on your face. This causes more damage than just ruining a good pillow case. Your pores will get extremely clogged and you will suffer many blemishes. Taking the time to wash your face each night will surely benefit you for many years.
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.
If you have sensitive skin there are certain things you should avoid doing in order to keep your skin healthy and looking its best. Do not wash your face with regular soap, do not use harsh, overly strong cosmetics, do not use facial masks that dry out the skin, avoid the use of foaming cosmetics and do not use cosmetics that contain fruit acids or alcohol.
If you have overly round eyes, you can elongate them by adjusting your eyeliner application. The outer two-thirds of your lower and upper lash lines should be lined with a dark brown liner. The two lines should meet at the outer corner of each eye. Finally, apply two coats of mascara to your outer upper lashes.
Having the wisdom to know that you are beautiful, no matter what you look like on the outside, is first and foremost. Once you know that, then the rest of this article can come into play as you implement the ideas here to be more beautiful, now and in the future.
