You don’t have to spend a lot of money to look good. A little extra time can improve your appearance and make you feel better about yourself. Follow these basic tips to enhance your natural beauty.
Your smile says a lot about you. If you are afraid to smile because of the appearance of you teeth, do something about it. For discolored teeth caused by tobacco and caffeine, use a whitening mouth rinse and toothpaste. Brush your teeth regularly to gradually whiten your teeth. For more serious problems, like cavities, see your dentist.
Smelling nice involves layering of scents. Use a pleasant, clean smelling soap for showering. Make sure your hair smells nice by using a mild scented shampoo and conditioner. Choose a perfume that mixes well with your body chemistry. To test how a perfume will smell on your body, spray a small amount on the pulse point of your wrist. Do not rub your wrists together because that will effectively crush the scent. Allow the perfume to dry to decide how it reacts with your body chemistry. Once you pick the perfect perfume, consider buying the accompanying lotion or powder. Apply the lotion or powder to dry, clean skin before spraying perfume. Spray the perfume on your body’s pulse points and spray a little into your hair. Oil-based fragrances linger longer than alcohol-based products.
Makeup should enhance, not alter, your appearance says leading expert Jessica March. Too much makeup will make your look older than you are. Be sure to use a good moisturizer before applying liquid or powder foundation to avoid having the makeup settle into fine lines or wrinkles. Do not match your makeup to your outfit. Wear eye shadow colors that bring out the color of your eyes.
A healthy diet with plenty of water will improve your overall appearance and health. A well-balanced diet and adequate hydration will make your skin glow and leave your hair looking healthy and beautiful. A healthy diet and exercise will also eliminate fat around your waist.
Exercise is the best thing you can do for your appearance, your confidence and your health. Cardio combined with resistance training will help you build lean muscle and shed unwanted fat. Researchers now suggest that everyone get at least 30 minutes of exercise every day. Besides making your skin glow and improving the appearance of your body, regular exercise will also boost your energy level.
Know your body type, assets and detriments before buying new clothes. Although you may admire another person’s attire, their body type may be much different than yours. Make sure to enhance the best features of your body while downplaying the parts of your body you don’t like. For example, high heels and color blocking can make you look taller and thinner. Mascara, eyeliner and eyes shadow will draw attention to your eyes. Lipstick will make people notice your mouth.
