Looking beautiful is good business. However, it takes time and effort, from styling your hair, to wearing the right makeup, to putting on a fitting outfit. Here are some tips on what to do to radiate that glamor;
- Face and Skin Care
In order to make your skin look its best, you should wash your face with lukewarm water at least twice daily, preferably in the morning when you wake up and in the evening before you sleep. Hot water is detrimental to your skin because it causes the skin to dry up.
Avoid using regular soaps, instead apply a face cleanser gently in circular motions. When choosing face cleansers, know your skin type and choose a face cleanser made for that particular type of skin. Do not scrub your skin, because it results in damage. When you are done washing your face, wash it with cold water to reduce skin pores and tighten them.
When you use makeup, make sure you remove it from your face before going to bed because leaving it allows pimple and clogged pores to develop on your face. After washing your face, you can use face toners and moisturisers. The face toners seal the pores on the skin, while the moisturiser makes your skin soft and smooth.
- Caring for your hair
Wash your hair every other day, or every three days, rather than daily because daily washing of your hair results in the loss of the natural oils in the hair. Your hair then becomes brittle and dry, leading to breakage. The only exception is if you exercise a lot and have fine, oily hair. In that case, you can wash your hair on a daily basis with a conditioner and gentle shampoo.
When washing your hair, apply the shampoo on your scalp, and top to middle part of your hair. Avoid scratching the hair with your nails. When you apply conditioners, after rinsing out the shampoo, apply them on the ends of your hair.
Brush your hair properly by working it in sections, rather than in one straight sweep. Only when the entire hair is smooth should you run the brush from the root to the tip.
As much as possible, limit the number of times you heat-style your hair. When you heat-style your hair, use the best curling irons in the beauty department and get a good heat protectant. The heat protectant serves the function of protecting your hair from getting burnt or looking dry.
Hair products that contain sulfates and silicones make your hair appear smooth and shiny but usually results in dull, lank hair with time.
- What you eat and drink
Drinking at least eight glasses of water everyday helps remove impurities in your skin. Staying hydrated helps make your skin glow.
Endeavor to include vegetables and fruits in your diet because fresh fruits and vegetables rid the skin of toxins, revealing a healthy skin.
Vitamin and vitamin supplements are also valuable to proper skin functioning. They aid the production of collagen in the body which helps maintain the elasticity of the skin.
