What every woman must know is that without a proper beauty regimen, you’re headed downhill from here on. You’ve heard the importance of taking care of your beauty countless of times–but just like many, you only find interest in a beauty routine during your mid to late twenties or even worse, once you hit 30.
Your skin is not invincible and if you want to keep it supple and healthy, you should avoid carelessness and stick to skin care habits that can help preserve your skin’s youthful glow. To be able to do that, here are some beauty tips for all women which can effectively take care of the skin and address the most common beauty problems among women.
So, here goes…
Here Are 25 Easy Beauty Tips Every Woman Must Know
If You Don’t Want To See Your Older Self at an Early Age.
1. Lotion Up:
Daily moisturizing is the best defense against dry skin. Invest in a heavy moisturizer to keep in your bag, car, and office.
2. Love The Greens
For a radiant and blemish-free complexion, add a side salad to your lunch or dinner.
3. Oh Honey!
We recommend honey for taking care of dry, cracked lips. It helps to heal wounds and hydrate parched skin, plus the anti-viral properties make it a good cold sore remedy, too.
4. Skin revival!
Apply a retinol based cream at night to repair damaged tissue while you slumber.
5. A Little Omega
A Mediterranean diet full of fish, fruit, vegetables, olive oil, and tea provides the skin with the good omega fatty acids, in order to maintain a healthy glow and reverse sun damage.
6. Skin irritants!
We know you don’t apply hair products to your face, but the residue can end up there anyway. Next time you apply hairspray, cover your face with a clean towel to protect your skin.
7. Get Your Zzzzz’s!
Not getting enough Zzz’s can cause stress, which leads to breakouts and a dull complexion. Bottom line: Don’t deprive your body and skin of sleep.
8. Care For Fine Eyes
Squinting in the sun can contribute to those crow’s feet, so always sport sunglasses with UV protection.
9. Skin Pampering
Whether it’s a facial, massage, or even a pedicure, be sure to pamper yourself. Try our medifacials. Its divine and you’ll love it.
10. Endorphin rush!
Endorphins are happy hormones. Need yet another reason to work out? Exercise gives your face a healthy glow by increasing blood flow. Without regular exercise you may see an increase in age spots, so grab your running shoes or hit the gym.
11. Tone Up
Toners are a handy product to keep in your arsenal to help balance pH levels in your skin. Look for ones that are free of irritants like alcohol, fragrance, citrus, menthol, color, and other aggressive extracts.
12. Team Time!
Antioxidants have proven to be extremely important as an aging preventative. Look out for products that have a complex of antioxidants, such as green tea, vitamin C, and CoQ10.
13. Body Buffer
Increase your circulation and give your body some extra exfoliation by using a dry brush once a week for bright and smooth skin. Afterwards, apply a creamy lotion to prevent flakes.
14. Treat Your Feet
Get smoother footsies in a flash with a mixture of salt and lotion, or by rubbing them with olive oil. Rinse thoroughly, and push back the cuticles as you towel dry.
15. Ice Cream? No. “Eye” Cream? Yes.
Using eye cream under your makeup can help concealer apply more smoothly and prevent it from building up in fine lines.
16. Wear Dairy
To control inflammation, apply a thin layer of cold yogurt over your face for five minutes in the morning to help restore it to its natural pH balance.
17. Lip Love
Your lips lack the same amount of melanin found in the rest of your skin, so apply SPF and hydrating balms regularly.
18. Hot Press
Use a warm or hot compress several times a day to treat deeper cysts and nodules in acne in order to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation.
19. Protein Power
Protein plays a vital role in the production of collagen and elastin, so feed your complexion by including healthy portions of meat, fish, eggs, cheese, beans, soy and lentils in your diet.
20. Gentle Hair Cleansing
Use shampoo that’s right for your hair type (dry, greasy, coloured etc.). It should also be gentle, respect the pH of your scalp, moisturize and soften the capillary fibre in your hair.
21. Back Off Junk!
So long, junk food! Eating a lot of fatty and sugary food can trigger an increase in insulin production, resulting in acne.
22. It’s Steamy!
To maintain your luster, steam your face over a bowl of hot water, cleanse with your usual face wash, and splash with cool water to tighten your squeaky-clean face.
23. Cut The Booze
Alcohol zaps the body of vitamin A, an important anti-oxidant that is necessary for repairing skin tissue.
24. Oil Up
Want silk-like skin, fast? After a shower, while your skin’s still damp, apply olive oil all over your body and pat dry with a damp towel.
25. Serve Less Salt
If your skin feels parched, it might be time to give up your salty nuts stash. Excess sodium in your diet can suck the moisture out of skin and leave it dull and dry. Cut back on salty treats and invest in a hydrating facial moisturizer to combat the dehydration.
Last But Not Least: Know Your Skin
If there’s anything that you want to be an expert on, that should be your skin. Know your colour and undertone; this will help you choose the right makeup. Know your skin type and this will guide you through choosing only safe beauty products for your skin.
The secret to a youthful glow even as you age is starting with a proper beauty routine early. Celebrate the glorious days of your life without neglecting your skin’s most important requirements with these natural beauty tips for women.
