Try rubbing Vaseline onto your feet before bed. Your feet will feel as smooth as a baby’s bottom. Do this every night as part of your routine, and it will be easy to remember. After applying the Vaseline, slip on a pair of cotton socks before going to bed.
Allow your hair to air dry as frequently as you can in order to protect it from heat damage. Hair care accessories such as curling irons, hair dryers and straightening irons will damage your hair if used daily. If need to dry it fast, dry your hair with the lowest setting. Your hair will retain a softer, silkier look for much longer.
Put petroleum jelly on your finger nails each week. This stimulates the nail bed and adds moisture, which keeps your nails splitting or peeling. Plus, they will look much healthier. The very first time you try this, you will notice immediate results.
Try coconut oil on your face, as opposed to those pricey facial moisturizers. Not only does virgin coconut oil give skin deep, soothing moisturizing, it also works to minimize wrinkles and fine lines. Not only that, but it can also help treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne thanks to its natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Heat-activated products will actually protect your hair while you dry and style it. Your hair can be damaged by using these tools too long or too often. If you use products with heat protectant in them, it is perfectly safe to use hair appliances that require heat on a daily basis. As an added bonus, these products usually help your hair look healthy and shiny, as well.
Only apply shimmer where light may enhance it. You can imbue a glowing effect that looks pleasant. Use a highlighter to add the shimmer to higher areas of the face. Then apply powder loosely to make it set.
To conceal imperfections, use some pink lipstick. Warm pinks compliment most skin tones and helps get your lips noticed instead of your flaws. You can hide that blemish under a nice “popping” lip and a great concealer so that nobody notices.
Replace all your expensive products with natural castile soap, a mild natural toner like vinegar or witch hazel and a soft washcloth. Use aloe vera to moisturize. These are good for any kind of skin type. If aloe vera doesn’t provide you with enough moisture, try adding a little vitamin E oil. For a good medicated toner, you can add a small amount of tea-tree oil.
You can make your own mouthwash from peppermint oil and purified water. You need one drop of the peppermint oil for each ounce of water. You want to make sure the water is boiled first and then measure the oil into a ceramic container. Add boiling water for the next step. Cover the container with a clean cloth (i.e. a handkerchief) and allow to cool. Pour the mixture into a sterile bottle and tightly screw on the lid. You now have your own custom mouthwash!
Here is a handy beauty tip. A brand of waterproof, lengthening mascara will increase the volume of your lashes. Many mascaras make claims about increasing volume and curl, using a special formulation. However, many of them are too thick. They are bad for the skin around your lash line and they may straighten a natural lash curl by weighing lashes down. Try different products until you find one that gives you the desired effect. This will help your lashes look voluminous and curl upward.
