Most people care about their appearance and work hard at making the most of it. With a plethora of cosmetic products and treatments available in boutiques, online or at the neighborhood drugstore, it is easier than ever to look good. But making a good impression goes deeper and may be easier than you imagined. Here are a few basics that may help you get a good start.
Open Your Eyes
Whether you choose to create a smoky eye or go au natural, beautiful eyes are the focal point of the face. Getting adequate sleep and wearing sunglasses outdoors may help prevent redness. Chilled cucumber slices placed around the eyes may reduce puffiness. Brushing, tweezing or trimming brows can give a neater appearance. If you feel your lashes are a little skimpy, you could draw attention to your peepers by applying natural eyelash extensions for a fuller lash line.
Flawless Looking Skin
While smooth and youthful skin may seem to be ideal, anyone can improve the texture and appearance of their skin to some degree. There is a myriad of beauty lotions on the market, but improving your skin may be as simple as keeping it clean, getting your beauty sleep, and staying hydrated so wrinkles don’t form as easily. Using a daily moisturizer and sunscreen can also help.
A Healthy Smile
A smile can say a lot about a person. Keeping teeth clean and gums healthy not only helps keep your teeth looking better but can also improve oral health and bad breath. Whitening is also helpful for some people and can be done either at a dental visit or with over the counter products. If you struggle with yellow teeth, avoid orange tones in your lipsticks, opting for pinker shades.
Keep It Clean
Your hair can convey an impression as to whether you take care of yourself and care about your appearance. That is not to say that beach hair is a no-no, but greasy or oily hair and dandruff are. Shampoos, conditioners, and dandruff treatments are plentiful and using them as needed, can improve the texture and appearance of your hair and scalp. Then you will be ready to scrunch, braid, backcomb or smooth your hair into any style you want.
Examine your beauty regimen and see if a couple of these simple steps can help you feel better about your appearance. They are easy to achieve and have the potential of helping make your other efforts more effective, letting you work smarter, not harder.
