Standing tall, feeling confident, believing in yourself -- these are all important ways to feel your best. But as any woman who's ever stood in front of a mirror can tell you, beauty secrets count too!
Here are the secrets revealed.
1. Don't store Your Makeup In The Bathroom
The warm and humid conditions of your bathroom during and after showers can make your makeup expire more quickly. It's better to store your daily makeup in your bedroom instead.
2. Sunscreen Is Your Best Anti-aging Product
Without the protection of sunscreen, just a few minutes of daily sun exposure over the years can cause noticeable changes in how skin looks and feels. Sunscreen can protect your skin from these damaging rays.
3. Choose Your Cleanser Wisely
Dermatologists say that one of the best beauty tips around is to use the gentlest cleanser you can find - and use it sparingly. If you're using a harsh product -- particularly soap -- you could be harming your skin.
4. Store Your Used Creams And Serums In The Fridge
It’s best to store any creams or serums in the fridge as it will allow for a longer shelf life. It's also especially good for eye creams as the cooling sensation reduces puffiness under the eyes.
5. Never Sleep In Your Makeup
Make sure you wash your entire face thoroughly before going to bed. Sleeping in your makeup will clog your pores and cause breakouts. If you still literally can't, keep some makeup wipes by your bed and at least take your foundation off.
6. Never Underestimate The Power Of Moisturizer
Sometimes, all you really need is a good moisturizer and a mild cleanser, and you can take years off your face. When skin is dry, every wrinkle is accentuated, making you look older.
7. Don’t Neglect Your Elbows
It’s easy to forget about your elbows, but they need just as much care as other parts of your body. Cure dry elbows by massaging Bio-Oil onto them daily. You’ll see and feel softer elbows in at least two days.
8. Say Goodbye To Hot Baths And Showers
We don't actually mean goodbye because we know everyone loves a nice long hot bath or shower after a day's work. But anyone who loves their skin should try to avoid showering in hot water as it can dry out and damage your skin over time. Instead, just go with a moderately warm temperature.
9. Growing Hair Out Requires Trimming It
We know, this advice always sounds counterintuitive, but it's true because damaged ends end up splitting and breaking off more easily. If you're trying to grow your hair longer, getting frequent trims is essential to prevent split ends from splitting too far up the strand.
10. If You Have Acne Problems Don’t Use Any Scrub
Scrubs are used to clean your face and to remove your blackheads and whiteheads. But using scrub during acne problem can start inflammation and sometimes lead to the burning of your skin. To prevent this swelling, you should use water and aspirin paste on your face, as suggested by skin specialists.
