Getting radiant and healthy skin is the objective of every self-respecting female and a lot of us spend hours on the Internet just trying to find different and new ways to beautify ourselves. Efforts definitely don’t go unrewarded and I am going to share with you 11 different amazingly simple yet effective tips for getting and keeping your skin as radiant and healthy as ever.
1) Make Use of those Lemons
Lemons are not only great to detox the body, but they can also be used as a skin cleanser. Simply apply the insides of a sliced lemon to your chin, elbows and other places that are hard to reach but require some stimulation and moisturization from time to time. Lemons can help tone oily skin, remove acne and blackheads and smoothen out the skin.
2) Relaxing your Face
One of the simplest techniques to try out at the gym or indeed at any point where you frown or show emotion on the face is to try to avoid this consciously. Remembering to relax the facial muscles will help avoid the formation of lines and wrinkles on the face. I know it’s an effort to appear complacent when being emotive, but it really works.
3) Patting your Face
If you are like most people, chances are that you tend to put on or take off your makeup in a hurry and rub it off rather than dab it off. Experts recommend that using a dabbing motion is not only more effective as it slows down the process and makes it more effective. Brisk brushing is counter- productive and lead to dryness and rash on the skin. Take me advice: patting is definitely a better option.
4) Washing your Hands
Keeping your hands clean at all times is good medical advice and is followed both by doctors and the general public to ensure good health and prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. It also ensures that dirt and allergies do not develop causing skin problems in future.
5) Get Me the Citrus
Lemons and oranges are two fruits recommended for good and radiant skin, so eating them and applying their rind to the skin from time to time will help smoothen the hard parts and promote good skin health. Don’t overdo it or you will get acidity.
6) Skin Care Massage
Massaging your skin care products into the skin, like patting, can also be to your advantage. Such a soft technique is guaranteed to make you feel better and relaxed. Never tend to put on makeup hurriedly as it is a wrong approach.
7) Mix and Match Carefully
Another aspect that requires some vigilance on our part is to remember to change our beauty products from time to time. We all have our favorites but scouring the market for new products is one way to gain new perspectives. It is also important to note which products complement each other as some products simply do not make good bedfellows.
8) From Thin to Thick
While applying makeup, one general rule that makes sense is to use thin strokes first and then follow it up with thicker ones. This prevents the thin strokes from spreading and ruining the overall effect.
9) A Good Foundation
Sometimes a good foundation can make all the difference in the world and really accentuate your skin beauty. It is a little known fact that taking some kinds of medication can have an effect on how your skin looks and feels too, so be sure to consult a dermatologist if you see that your makeup is not having the desired effect. Moisturizing and exfoliating can have an impact as well.
10) Exfoliating the Skin
If you really want your smooth and supple skin to last longer, go for exfoliation at least twice a week. Use a natural or chemical scrub-whichever works best for you- but get the advice of a chemist who will know the probable effect on your skin type.
11) Using Tea Tree Oil
Treating the skin with tea tree oil just after your morning shower is one of the best things you can do to promote its natural beauty and health. Some people can develop dryness or an allergic reaction so please test it on another area before you use it on your face.
