How to Have a Beautiful and Healthy Face

Healthy skin is important to everyone. Your face is the most important part of your body, because its what every looks at first and great facial skin is the first step to creating a fresh, beautiful appearance. Your face requires the proper skin serums and a daily regimen to keep it fresh and beautiful. The most important thing to remember when choosing a facial skin care regime is to choose products that do not contain harmful chemicals. Chemicals, like botox or collagen, my have an immediate effect on the skin, however, in the longer term they will leave your skin facial muscles weak, and cause the skin to sag, or develop dark circles under the eyes. An organic chemical free skin care regimen, will use only natural ingredients to aid your skin in developing natural defensives it already has to promote skin health.

Choosing a Cleanser

When choosing a cleanser, be sure to look for one that does not contain abrasive chemicals, like used it soap, because it will overly dry your skin and eventually cause wrinkles. You will want to look for a cleanser that contains Aloe Vera and some Green Tea to natural remove free radials and toxins.

Daily Moisturizer

Aloe Vera and Jojoba is essential for maintaining good health and skin. Jojoba is an amazing ant oxidizing agent, which is throughout our body in order to boost the immune system. Human skin also contains wax esters for which production steadily decreases with age, causing the skin wrinkles. The extract from Jojoba Nut contains alpha, delta, and gamma Tocopherol, which are all forms of vitamin E. Unlike “oil in water” skin formulas which evaporate when they reach the skin’s surface, Jojoba fluid penetrates the lipid layer forming a non-greasy layer with exceptional transepidermal water control. Jojoba prevents stretch marks thanks to the elastic effect on the skin. It should also be applied after exposing the skin to the sun, because Jojoba contains curative properties which will reduce inflammation and prevent flaking.

 

How to Maintain Beautiful Lips Throughout the Year

The onset of winter generally means dryer skin and this is noticed most on your lips. Not only do lips have the thinnest skin on them but they have almost no sebaceous (oil) glands and absolutely no sweat glands. Add to this the fact that lips lose 3-10 times more moisture than the other parts of the face, so no wonder we have dry lips.

What do most of us instinctively do when we have dry lips? Yes, we lick them. Making the problem worse, because the saliva actually eats away that precious thin skin layer we have on our lips, therefore making the lips drier, even to the point of cracking and bleeding. Avoid getting to this state at all costs.

Step 1) Always, always keep your lips hydrated! Even at night. Get into the habit of applying lip cream or lip balm as part of your skincare routine. Personally I choose not to use a lip balm with an SPF at night as you don’t need it but I prefer ones with vitamin A or E in them to nourish the lips. You will find that smooth, moist lips will hold lip gloss or lipstick the best.

Step 2) Create the right foundation! To make sure your lips always look their best without any bleeding of the colour or simply disappeared lipstick, you need a little preparation. This works well both for lipsticks and lip glosses.

A: Apply foundation all over your lips.

B: With lip liner, colour in the whole lip area, not just the outline.

C: It is always best to stick to your natural lip line initially. Once your natural shape is established you can, very carefully even out the lips or extend the outline. Be Cautious when doing this as there is nothing worse than seeing an unnatural lip line.

Step 3) Colour in the masterpiece!

A: Apply your colour starting at the centre of your lips and thinning the colour out towards the corners of your mouth.

B: So you don’t end up wearing your lipstick on your teeth, place your index finger in your mouth, close your lips around it and pull it out. This is a fantastic way to remove any excess colour. Make sure you wipe your finger; otherwise you will end up with the colour on your clothes.

Step 4) Budge proof your lipstick! Personally I’m not a big fan of long last lipsticks as these generally are drier formulations and make my lips uncomfortably dry especially in winter. So to budge proof your lipstick, follow these steps.

A: After applying your colour, blot with a tissue.

B: Lightly powder your lips with a brush or a puff.

C: Reapply colour.

Following these steps will ensure you never again will experience dry, cracked, chapped lips. What’s more your lips will look glamorous no matter what the occasion!

 

How to Buy Makeup Online

There are many places online to buy makeup. Make sure that you know what you want and research the product line before you buy. Look for testimonials about the products if you are not knowledgeable about the line. You can buy makeup from the makeup line webpage or from other sources such as Buy Dot Com, HSN, and QVC just to name a few.

Make sure there is an offer to refund your money if you do not like the product. Some offer a money back guarantee, but it is for a limited time. Give the makeup a few days to see how it reacts with your skin.

If you know a product line and you like the makeup; you might find it cheaper online. This is a great way to go to buy kits that include skincare and makeup. Often the kits will include makeup for the whole face, which can save you a lot of money.

There are often freebies that come along with the online purchase of makeup, like a free sample product, a makeup case, or coupons for future purchases. You can buy kits and give away what you do not use as gifts to friends and family.

Watch any demonstrations on use of the makeup which some shopping networks will do. Read the descriptions of the makeup. Look at the colors and choose colors that will compliment your skin and eye color. Often the kit will be offered in fair, light, medium, tan, and deep colors with corresponding blush, eye shadow and lipstick colors for that skin tone.

Ask friends if they have used any of the products. Look to see if they have a chat forum on the site so you can ask questions about products that you are interested in. The more you know the better you will be able to make an informed decision.

Many newer makeup lines show up on infomercials or online before they show up in the market place. This is a good time to try a new product as it is usually discounted and they offer a money back guarantee to get buyers to try the products.

Consider doing an online search about any product you might want to try. Also look at beauty forums to see what is used by many others. See the results that they have had. Remember that not everything will get a perfect score, but if there are many negative feedbacks then you might want to consider avoiding that product.

Only you know what you want in a makeup line. You know your skin. Stay away from products with many chemicals, the more natural the better. Do not be afraid to try new things, if you do not like it, send it back. You might just find a new favorite if you try a new product line.

Be sure to take in shipping and handling costs when purchasing products online. Some places offer free shipping on some purchases or if you spend a certain amount of money on their site. Do not be afraid to ask questions about makeup lines that you are unfamiliar with.

You are now ready to hit the web shopping! Have a great time and try some new things.

 

How to Choose the Lipstick

You have trouble when you need to buy a new lipstick, because you can’t find the exact color that advantages you? Read and learn what you should consider to make the best choice.

Skin color wise

Avoid strident colors if your skin is pale, or the contrast will be too big. Opt for a delicate hue, sweet and pastel and emphasize on the eye makeup and the cheeks. Pearly or glossy textures will give you a fresh look. If you have tan or dark skin, you may choose strong colors like dark red, Bordeaux, cherry, or nude, like beige or gold, if you’re going for an exotic look.

Eyes color and hair color wise

If you’re a blonde

The day makeup should be oriented to natural light colors that would not contrast with the hair color. Pink hues or peach are the best suited. Of the dark hues, choose bright red for a sexy refined look.

If your hair is brown

Take advantage of the medium hues, not to bright, not too light. Wear brick-red, fuchsia, medium cherry, mauve. You may choose for a combination of 2 different hues, for a cool effect.

If you’re a brunette

You’re lucky; almost all the hues look good on you, from the lightest to the darkest. But always be careful to match the lipstick with the rest of the makeup, for a perfect harmony.

If your eyes are black or brown

The live-looking lipsticks are the ones that emphasize the iris. Choose the ones with red pigment or the golden ones.

If your eyes are green or blue choose orange, lily or pink. These are the hues for you. Starting from these ones, use hues lighter or darker in intensity, depending on the effect you go for.

Lip shape wise

Fat lips

Even if almost any hue looks good on you, you should avoid bright colors, for they may seem vulgar. Try sweet ones instead, like peach, pink-rose, etc. Choose creamy textures and you won’t need lip gloss anymore.

Thin lips

Strong colors are thinning the lips. Use natural tones, that contour subtle the lips, without being too fade: orange, gold, light pink or light cyclamen. For extra volume to the lips, you may use a lip gloss with special ingredients or apply at the end of the makeup a clear lip gloss.

Asymmetrical lips

Avoid contour crayons, for those reveal even more the lips shape. The best option is replacing lipstick with colored gloss. Because of the shining, they blur the natural shape.

Always mind the hue of the lipstick when you use makeup.

Matte lipstick, transfer resistant, that maintain on the lips all day, are poor moisturizers, and this is exactly why you should avoid them if your lips are cracked or dry. Better try a creamy moisturizing vitamin rich lipstick.
