The way we look is always going to be an important part of who we are. Not to say that that is the only part of who we are or that it is of more importance than our character, personality traits, thoughts or ideas. But there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to look our best at all times.
To achieve better looks we can and should always eat healthier, work out, and look to lead a more balanced existence by all accounts. However, understanding a couple of extra crucial beauty secrets can really help you out in achieving a better self image and with it, self confidence. So let’s take a look at these beauty tips that every woman should be aware of.
We can have different types of skin, either dry, regular or oily, and while you don’t have to go all out with using tons of skin care products, there is one product that is a necessity for all: the moisturizer. A good moisturizer will do wonders in keeping years off your face if you apply it on a regular basis. When your skin is dry, any wrinkle you may have is far more visible, so moisturizing your skin will always give you a younger look.
Even if you are in your early 20’s or early 30’s, using moisturizer on a regular basis will prevent premature aging of your skin, allowing you to look younger for much longer. If you posses normal to dry skin, look for a moisturizer that contains alpha hydroxy acids. These will enable your skin to generate moisture by itself. If however you skin is usually extra dry, look for a product that offer vesicular emultion – a technology that uses alternating layers of moisture and H2O that lasts throughout the day.
Finally, if you have oily skin, you still need a moisturizer, as oily doesn’t mean your skin is actually moist. Look for a lighter moisturizer in this case.
Nothing beats aging prematurely like using sunscreen regularly. Not only will it prevent your skin from aging too quickly, sunscreen is a leading product in reducing the risk of developing skin cancer. When you use it on your face, the sun’s rays become far less damaging, getting almost completely blocked and their effects rendered completely void. The Sun normally affects your skin’s ability to produce collagen, resulting in wrinkles generating much sooner than normal. In terms of SPF, it is recommended you go for 15 or even higher, as effects can diminish as you advance through the day, so you need a decent level of protection. You can even apply sunscreen before putting on your makeup and it will still work just fine.
Hair and makeup are the way we express a big part of our personality. But that doesn’t mean we should be sticking to the same style forever. Times change, fashion is always evolving, so making changes to your hair and make-up every couple of years will keep you in style. It will also give you more self confidence as you’ll always be up to date, always changing something, always staying fresh. Doing this results in you automatically looking younger, especially compared to a person of a similar age that just keeps the same old style for most of their life.
Most experts agree that if you can’t remember when you’ve changed the way you do your hair and makeup, it’s about time that you make a change. So take it as a rule, and always stay fresh, it will boost your image and self confidence. Remember these tips to improve and maintain your skin and physical appearance.
