Beauty is not just about a person’s face, it lies on several factors as well. In order to be considered beautiful, you need to look prim and proper from head to toe.
Looking for ways to be the center of attention? If you want to look your best and gain admiration from people all over, then here are the top 5 beauty tips you need to follow.
1. Keep your skin moisturized:
Moisturizers are not only for women with dry skin – it is recommended for those with oily and normal skin as well. By using this product regularly, mature women can eradicate aging lines from their faces without the use of expensive products and surgical treatments. For women in their 20’s and 30’s, moisturizers can keep the skin from prematurely aging.
So what makes a good moisturizer? According to dermatologists, the best product to use is one which contains alpha-hydroxy acids, which can stimulate the skin to produce moisture on its own.
2. Apply sunscreen regularly:
Sunscreen does not only protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, they keep your skin from aging as well. That’s because these sun rays prevent collagen production, a substance which keeps your skin moist, plump, wrinkle-free and youthful.
So if your work or lifestyle requires you to stay under the sun for a prolonged period of time, then make sure to keep your skin protected with sunscreen with a SPF 15 or higher. Reapply it every 2 hours underneath your make-up for best results.
3. Use a gentle facial cleanser:
There are many facial cleansers available, but if you want to look beautiful every day, then you need to use the gentlest foam you can ever get your hands on.
Apart from using a mild skin cleanser, dermatologists recommend cleansing your face a maximum of 2 times a day. If you do it 3 or more times a day, you can damage your face’s lipid barrier, which keeps it healthy and young-looking. Worse of all, over-cleansing can make your skin dry, itchy, cracked and peeled.
4. Change your hair and make-up every 2 years:
You might think that the comment “You haven’t changed a bit” is positive, but it actually hinders you from achieving your full beauty potential. If you want to look vibrant to your friends and family, then make sure to hit the salon and revamp your make-up kit at least once every 2 years. Make-up has an expiration date too, and if you do not update your beauty arsenal, you will end up looking old and outdated.
5. Live a healthy lifestyle:
Even if you have a complete kit of beautifying tools in your closet, you will not be able to maintain your beauty if you do not live a healthy lifestyle. To look your best, avoid activities that can accelerate skin aging, such as tanning, smoking and sunbathing.
