Having confidence in how we appear to others is a combination of factors such as stance, cleanliness, attitude, and the proper application of simple beauty tips.Confidence is a feeling we have about ourselves when we take steps to look our best.
Looking your best doesn’t have to be complicated. You need only to pay attention to a few beauty essentials that can help you look and feel great without spending a lot of time or money.
Tip #1: Your Cleanser Matters
Most of us have a daily cleansing ritual prior to the application of sunscreens or makeup. The skin can be harmed by harsh chemicals found in common soaps. If you wash more than once a day you can harm the lipid barrier that lubricates the skin.
Once that protection is lost, and the integrity of the skin barrier disrupted, skin becomes dry leading to aging effects including deeper wrinkling, scaling, and red patching.
It is important to limit washing to twice a day and choose gentle cleanser which moisturizes as it cleans.
Tip #2: Moisturize
Whether your skin is dry, normal, or even oily, if you can only afford one skin care product, your dollars will be well spent on a good moisturizer. As we age the skin naturally forms wrinkles and these can be accentuated when the skin drys. By moiturizing your skin in the 20s or 30s, you gain some of the protection you need to keep skin from developing premature age lines.
A good moisturizer will gently add moisture and assist in sealing in the natural moisture you’ve achieved through daily application. The type of moisturizer you choose should be based on your skin condition. If your skin is normal to dry, look for moisturizers containing alpha hydroxy acids. They can help skin produce more moisture on its own. If skin is oily, look for a light, gentle moisturizer. Oil is not moisture, and even if you have excess oil you still need moisture
Tip #3: Use Sunscreen
We love the sun and it is a fact that our health requires daily exposure to the sun. But our skin is susceptible to damage from UV rays and it is well known that to much exposure to the sun prematurely ages our looks.
Sunscreen is the key to protecting your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. And it’s an amazing beauty secret that can help keep skin looking young. Sunscreen affects collagen production in the skin. Collagen is what makes your skin appear plump and wrinkle free. A few minutes of daily sun exposure over the years can cause noticeable changes in how skin looks and feels, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
Not only will you see more wrinkles and fine lines, but also more freckles, age spots, and spider veins. Skin itself can look rough and leathery or loose and slack. Choose a sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher. Be sure to apply at minimum every two hours that your out in the sun.
Tip #4: Pamper Yourself
Regular visits to the spa / beauty salon will keep you looking your best. Most Spa’s focus on providing anti-aging treatments that focus on specific aging problems. A regenerating facial incorporates progressive technologies that visibly lift and plump the skin while promoting cellular renewal.
Typically ultrasonic exfoliation and microcurrent therapy is administered to lift tone and re-educate sagging muscles in the face and neck. Using ultrasonic vibrations, a custom-selected serum is infused to improve tone, texture, firmness and hydration.
Spa treatments can vary but the best spa’s offer a wide range of therapies to help you recover a youthful appearance. And there is also the added calming benefit that comes with the knowledge that your taking steps to maintain a confident beauty.
Tip #5: Keep up with the times
Every few years reassess your appearance with a trip to the beauty salon. Switching to a new style is a great way to feel great about your appearance. There is no getting around the fact that we age, and as we do our features change. A professional salon advisor can take years off your appearance with the right application of hair and beauty treatments.
By keeping your look current you also look younger and more modern. Once you have made a change to the hair style your next stop is the cosmetic counter. Not only will you have a great time testing new looks with a professional cosmetician, but you will also get the scoop on the latest technologies in cosmetics.
