Since time immemorial, the definition of beauty has kept evolving. There are countless cases of the perfect plastic surgery and countless cases of the perfect natural proportions. Whatever definition you hold for the right one, we have to remember that there is definitely more to beauty than what meets the eye.
Here is a list of timeless beauty tips to remember:
Brush hair from roots to ends
Brush hair from roots to ends nightly. This distributes natural oils throughout the shaft and gives hair a healthy sheen. (http://www.womansday.com/)
Hands off for frizz-free hair
Towel-dry your hair, work a dime-size drop of leave-in conditioner through and then just leave it alone. Most curlies make the mistake of over-touching their hair when it’s drying, which can disturb the curl pattern and bring on frizz.
Use Your Ring Finger To Moisturize
Always use your ring finger to apply moisturizer or concealer to the eye area. It puts the least amount of pressure on the skin. (http://www.womansday.com/)
De-puff with H20
Splash your eyes with cold water as soon as you get up—it reduces eye-swelling right away (http://www.health.com/)
Dealing with under eye bags and dark circles
Take used chamomile tea bags and store them in the freezer. Grate half a cucumber and massage around eye area and then lie down with the tea bags on your eyes for 10 minutes.You will find an instant difference in the way your eyes look and feel. (http://food.ndtv.com/)
Remove makeup with coconut oil
After I douse a cotton pad with my regular makeup remover, I add a bit of coconut oil and apply it to my closed eye. It helps break up the makeup, so it slides off with more ease. (http://www.health.com/)
Care for your cuticles
Avoid having your cuticles trimmed during a manicure. Cuticles are meant to be a barrier for bacteria, and cutting them can lead to painful infections. You can moisten and push them back with a cuticle pusher, and trim away only dead pieces of skin.
If you’re planning on having a conventional manicure done, then at least protect your cuticles by dabbing with olive oil or almond oil prior, in order to reduce the amount of chemical that soaks in from the polish. (https://www.treehugger.com)
Make a natural nail-strengthening treatment
This recipe comes from a book called There’s Lead in Your Lipstick by Gill Deacon.
Mix: 2 tsp castor oil, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp wheat germ oil. Mix and keep in a sealed bottle. Rub a small amount onto your nails. Leave for 3 to 5 minutes. Wipe off. Makes enough for 20 to 30 applications. (https://www.treehugger.com)
Alleviate the pain
What I do when I notice my shoes are rubbing me the wrong way, is apply a little bit of chap-stick or lip gloss to my finger, and then apply it to the affected area. This is a quick and easy way to alleviate some of that pain and discomfort, simply by lubricating the area with something you’ve already got handy. (https://www.bikiniluxe.com/)
