Heading on vacation or for a weekend away can be a lot of fun. Not only do you get to relax and have fun with friends, family, or your significant other, but you get to let your hair down and take some time out. And when we take time out, we all want to look and feel our best. And there’s nothing like a bit of summer beauty prep to get you there.

 

Whether you’re a big believer in the whole mani-pedi-spray tan combo come vacation time, you like to make sure that you’re feeling your best at the start of the summer, there are a few things that you might want to cover off before you head off. So, even before you start dreaming of summertime cocktails and breakfast on the beach, it’s time to look at the top beauty steps to take before you go.

 

  1. Book In For A Wax

 

The first thing you’re want to do to get yourself vacay ready is to think about the hair removal process. To make sure that your legs stay smoother for longer, you might want to switch your usual method of shaving for a more efficient wax. Then you won’t have to worry about shaving when you’re heading to the beach.

 

  1. Exfoliate

 

Next up, you’re going to want to keep on top of an exfoliate schedule. If you don’t always exfoliate, you might find this one a bit hard. But, keep those legs even smoother for longer, and to make sure that your skin keeps a tan a bit longer, you’re going to want to buff away those dead skin cells a few times a week.

 

  1. Get A Manicure

 

And then there’s the classic manicure to think about. If you already head to the salon on a weekly or fortnightly basis, you may already have your standing appointment in place. If not, you should book in. Gel or Shellac nails last so much longer than regular polish and are perfect for your vacation, especially when you opt for fun summer nail art.

 

  1. Pamper Your Feet

 

With your nails look pretty, you don’t want your feet to feel left out. So, next up, you’re going to want to go for a pedicure or do one yourself. Buff away the hard, dead skin, clip back those nails, paint them a pretty shade and make sure you add lots of moisturizer to keep them feeling good for the entire time you’re away.

 

  1. Get Highlights

 

When the months are warmer, there’s nothing like changing up your look a little to follow suit. So, if you want to get in the vacation spirit, why not think about adding in a few highlights when you’re next in the salon? There are so many subtle balayage types that you could just go for a little sun-kissed look to flatter your soon-to-be tanned skin, rather than a huge change.

  1. Sort Your Brows

 

Wouldn’t it be perfect if our brows just stayed exactly how they are when you walk out of the beauty salon? Well, because that can’t overly happen, you’re going to want to make sure you book a brow appointment for as close to your vacation date as possible. Then, you’ll be brow beautiful.

 

  1. Get Pearly Whites

 

Next, you’re going to want to be able to smile like you mean it while you’re away. And nothing makes a good smile feel great like those shining pearly whites. So, pick up a whitening charcoal toothpaste a few weeks before you go and get to work. Your teeth will be sparkling in no time.

 

  1. Give Yourself A Facial

 

You’re going to want to make sure that your skin looks and feels its best before you go away. Whether you’re planning on going fresh faced a lot of the time, or you just want a clear complexion to make you feel confident, give yourself a facial before you go to bring out your radiance.

 

  1. Top Up Your Tan

 

And who doesn’t want to hit the beach looking like they’ve been there for years already? If you want to have that gorgeous summer glow on your skin before you arrive, you’re going to want to invest in a good fake tan and get your routine right a few weeks or days before. Then, you’ll feel like you really fit in when you’re laying out by the pool.

 

  1. Try Eyelash Extensions

 

Finally, to make you feel as if you’re makeup ready as soon as you wake up, why not give eyelash extensions ago for your break away? Not only do they give you extra length and volume, but you also don’t have to apply mascara every morning either. It’s a win-win!

 

 

Beauty On A Budget: Saving Time And Money On Your Face

For a lot of people, a large portion of their weekly or monthly budget goes into cosmetics. This industry is one of the biggest in the world. And, companies know this. This enables them to charge any price they like, for items which are worth just a fraction of what they make on them. This isn’t going to change. But, you can still find some ways to save a little bit in this area. To help you out, this post will be going through three of the ways you can make this whole pursuit just a little bit cheaper. So, now, you just have to go out shopping.

One of the easiest ways to save money on something like this is through compromise. Buying cheaper brands will always save some money. But, you can do better than this. Instead of buying your makeup at all; you can make it yourself. There are loads of ways to make natural makeup using guides online. Of course, you won’t be able to make all of your makeup. But, you can start doing this with some of the products you buy. Along with this, there are loads of natural supplements which can take the place of other cosmetic products. For example, a chemical like creatine can be used in the place of hair and nail strengthening agents. And, it doesn’t cost much at all.

 

For some, the idea of buying different options will be too much. And, of course, this makes sense; a lot of people get accustomed to their makeup. And, changing it could make life very hard. So, instead, it’s a good idea to try and look for some of the ways you can stock up on these items. There are loads of websites out there dedicated to selling wholesale products like this. Buying things in bulk will almost always make them cheaper because it gives the seller a chance to make money fast. To do this, you will have to look for some companies in your home country. Aliexpress is a great example of a company that does this sort of thing worldwide. But, you might find it hard to find exactly what you want.

 

Companies have sales all the time. This sort of trick has been used for years by businesses to try and increase revenue. Of course, they don’t lose money during these sorts of events. And, may even make more than usual. But, this doesn’t mean that you can’t take advantage of them. When your favourite items go on sale, it’s worth buying as much of it as you can. Along with this, you should use sites like Sweet Sparkle Makeup to find new deals which you haven’t found yourself. Salers can be one of the best ways to save money on products like this; you just have to find them.

 

Hopefully, this will inspire you to start working harder on your makeup and other cosmetics. Most people don’t put in this effort. And, it will always have a negative impact on their wallet. So, be smart; buy these products at their lowest price.

5 Ways To Make Your Skin Sizzle This Summer

We all love the summer but it can take its toll on the skin. We may love the heat but our skin does not. On top of that, it must cope with pollution, humidity and strong sunlight. This can wipe the glow off your face! As you pack up your suitcase for your summer break, make sure that beautiful skin is part of your summer look. Get it back with these 5 essential tips for radiant summer skin.

Image from: https://static.pexels.com/photos/29592/pexels-photo.jpg

  1. Sunscreen is a must!

A large proportion of summer skin problems is caused the intensity of the sun. This causes damage. The only way to slow this process down is to apply sunscreen. If you find an old bottle at the back of your cupboards you should throw it away. Fresh sunscreen is the best! Buy a product that is available in SPF 30 and SPF 70 and use about a teaspoon on your face. It should be reapplied every 1-2 hours if you want to see the difference in your complexion

    2. Moisturize as much as you can

Our skin loses a lot of moisture in the summer and dryness can be a problem. There are some great korean skin care products to choose from which will soothe and refresh sun-frazzled skin. Don’t just focus on the face. The whole body needs a summery lotion. Thick winter body butters will feel too heavy at this time of year so pack them away. Invest in some light summery lotions that your skin can easily absorb.

Gels and purees work well and light fruity lotions are always popular in the summer. The best time to apply them is right after you get out of the shower. It doesn’t matter if your skin is still a little damp. The moisturizer will seal in the moisture.

    3. Start as you mean to go on

You may be glowing by the end of the summer but you don’t want to start off looking washed out. Why not add a little summer tint to your skin at the end of Spring. Using a sunless tanner will give your tan the kick-start that it needs. You will feel confident enough to wear all your strappy dresses. Choose a facial moisturizer that builds a bit of color at a time and soon you will be able to ditch the foundation and concealer.

    4. Start from the bottom up

Our poor feet are trapped away in boots all over the winter months and can emerge looking a little sorry or themselves. Now that sandal season has arrived it is time to do something about it. A professional pedicure is the best option but you could do it yourself if you on a budget. Scrub off the dead dry skin several times a week and apply a bright nail polish.

    5. Drink, drink, drink

Hydrating your body is always important but in summer you need at least 8 glasses of water a day. Carry a water bottle with you everywhere and drink at least once every 30 minutes.

Natural Remedies To Treat Problem Skin

Although we all like to think of ourselves as confident in our inner beauty, there’s nothing that can knock you down like skin problems. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a sudden breakout, an accidental sunburn, or an existing condition, problem skin makes even the most confident women want to hide until the problem goes away. Treating the problems with medication and special creams can get expensive, but you shouldn’t have to blow your savings to get clear skin. Here are some natural home remedies that can treat your skin and keep your conditions manageable. You can also help your skin by adopting some basic healthy habits.

Acne

Generally, acne, pimples and skin problems are associated with the hormonal changes which occur during puberty, but young adults, menopausal women, and people who work in unhealthy environments are also prone to breakouts. You can reduce them by adopting a healthy lifestyle – drinking lots of water, eating food rich in fiber, omega-3, and vitamins A and B complex, and consuming probiotics to prevent yeast from developing. However, changes in your lifestyle will reduce the problem gradually, so you could also use naturally remedies to speed things up without damaging your skin.

Apple Cider Vinegar remedy

Apple cider vinegar kills off the bacteria that may be causing your acne by becoming alkaline, and balancing the pH of your skin. This makes it harder for bacteria to thrive. It also dries up excess oil. After washing and drying your face, apply a solution of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water to your face using a Q-tip. Leave on for at least 10 minutes, or overnight, then wash it off. Make sure to use a moisturizer afterwards as well if you feel like your skin is getting dry.

Be careful not to apply too much vinegar at once; this could cause the sebaceous glands overproduce to compensate, therefore triggering an outbreak.

Baking soda remedy

This treatment can help speed up the healing, clearing, and reduction of acne and its scars. Baking soda can operate as either an acid or a base. In this way, it can help to neutralize any pH imbalances on the skin, which are a common cause of acne. Baking soda helps to dry the skin, removing the excess oil which leads to blackheads and breakouts.

Simply mix some baking soda with some water in a bowl to a thick paste. Apply this paste all over your face as a facial mask for 20 minutes, then wash it off with lukewarm water.

Psoriasis

Living with psoriasis can vary from person to person. Some regard it as a minor irritation, but those who are severely affected can find it fairly unbearable. Unfortunately, there is no cure, but there are ways you can soothe the worst of the itchiness on your skin.

Warm baths

You might normally avoid baths because hot water is an irritant for your skin. However, a lukewarm bath with Epsom salt, mineral oil, milk, or olive oil can soothe the itching and infiltrate scales and plaques. Moisturize immediately after your bath for double benefits. A heavy moisturizer or petroleum jelly locks water into your skin to help it heal and reduce the redness.

Turmeric

Herbs are commonly used to treat many conditions. Turmeric has been found to help minimize psoriasis flare-ups due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It can be taken in pill or supplement form or sprinkled on your food; it’s usually found in even the mildest of curries.

Symptoms of psoriasis can also be alleviated with a healthy lifestyle. Avoid tobacco and alcohol, eat cold water fish, seeds, nuts, and omega-3 fatty acids to reduce the inflammation of your skin, and consume vitamin supplements that contain fish oil, vitamin D, milk thistle, and aloe vera. If none of these remedies are helping, visit West Dermatology for options.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are caused when the skin rapidly stretches as a result of sudden growth or weight gain. The stretching causes the middle layer of skin to tear, allowing the deeper skin layers to show through, forming stretch marks. Whether they’re a result of weight loss or pregnancy, stretch marks are nothing to be ashamed of. However, if you’d prefer not to have them at all, there are several ways to reduce their appearance.

Potato juice

The easiest treatment for stretch marks only requires a freshly sliced potato. Simply rub the potato gently on the affected area for few minutes. Allow the juice to dry for some time and later clean it with lukewarm water. The presence of antioxidants in potatoes helps remove stretch marks, and the starch has moisturizing properties that soothes the skin.

Sugar scrub

Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid; an alpha hydroxic acid that stimulates the skin and helps generate younger and fresher looking skin. The small particles in sugar are used in a number of body scrubs to exfoliate skin and remove dead skin cells.

To make the scrub, you’ll need to add almond oil and a few drops of lemon juice to raw sugar to make a paste. Gently rub the mixture on the affected area for at least 10 minutes, before hopping into the shower. Repeat this treatment monthly until you see an improvement.

Ingrown hair

Although most of us learn to live with them, ingrown hairs are uncomfortable, itchy, and they cause ugly red bumps on your otherwise smooth legs. You don’t have to accept this is the price to pay for a close shave; eliminate ingrown hairs with these simple remedies.

Salt scrub

Sometimes, dead skin can clog up a hair follicle, which forces the hair inside it to grow sideways under the skin, rather than upward and outward. Exfoliating with salt can clear away the dead skin. Make a mixture of one-cup water and 1 ½ teaspoons salt. Dip a cotton ball into the mixture and apply it over the ingrown hair. Follow this procedure daily, but avoid using it if you face any skin complications.

Glowing With Health

Wouldn’t it be nice if we were glowing with health all of the time? Then we’d always feel and look our best no matter what life threw at us. Unfortunately, unless you are a superhero this probably isn’t going to happen, and you are occasionally going to get sick. But you can still improve how you look and feel for most of the time by doing the following things.

 

Eat well

 

This one is so simple, but so hard at the same time. We live in a society filled full of delicious but unhealthy food; designed to tempt us off of the wagon.

 

There are those yummy pastries at the coffee stand in the morning on the way to work. Then the packet of biscuits that Tina from accounts brought to the meeting. Then there is always the temptation to get a little treat from the vending machine to help the afternoon go that little bit quicker, and so on.

But eating well is probably one of the most important ways that we can improve both how we feel and look. In particular, clean eating, where you only eat natural and unprocessed foods, as well as staying away from refined sugar is said to make you feel more energetic. As well as helping your skin look great by detoxing all of that rubbish out of your body.

 

Move that body

 

Now, most of us know that to look and feel our best we need to have some kind of regular exercise built into our schedule. But too many people think that unless they are wearing neon pink lycra at the gym, they just aren’t exercising properly.

But what they are failing to realize is that just small changes in their day can make all of the difference. Things like going for a walk at lunch instead of sitting at their desk. Or doing half an hour of slow yoga before bed to relax and unwind from the day.

 

Remember exercise isn’t all about pushing yourself as hard as you can go. Any type can actually help you improve your circulation, get some fresh air, and chill out. Even if it’s not the most intense workout you have ever done.

Look after your teeth

 

They say the eyes are the window to the soul, but if you ask me the smile is pretty telling of how you feel as well.

 

For one thing, if you’re not smiling much you could actually be limiting your opportunity to feel good. You can read more about this at https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive.

But what if you aren’t smiling because you don’t like your teeth? Then this is something that needs to be sorted.

 

Pop to your local dentist office and see what they can do for you. You may be surprised at how high-tech ring have got as they are now using digital interoral compares like the ones available at https://www.prodentshop.com/pages/6-incredible-benefits-of-intraoral-cameras-for-dentists-and-patients. As well as thing like invisible braces to straighten teeth, while maintaining your look.

 

Build up your immunity

 

Everybody gets sick, but some folks get sicker than others. This can be for different reasons, one of which is low immunity.

 

Immunity if your bodies ability to resist infection and heal itself, and if yours is low is can certainly result in looking and feeling awful.

It also means that every time anyone in a 5-mile radius gets a sniffle, you almost just need to get it as well. Only it’ll take you longer to get rid of it. That is why it’s a great idea to boost your immunity whenever possible.

 

Of course, eating a nutritious diet and exercising can help, but many folks also take supplements to assist in this area. Popular ones include Echinacea which is a natural antibiotic and anti- inflammatory, as well as Colloidal Silver.

 

Breathe

 

Now, you may be thinking, why is this article telling me to breathe? I do this all of the time anyway! Obviously! Otherwise, I wouldn’t be here!

 

But there is a difference in the types of breathing that we do. For example, when you are stressed you often shallow breath which means that the body is getting lots of oxygen ready to go into flight or flight mode.

 

Picture source

 

Of course, that means the brain is getting a lot of oxygen too, which further trigger the stress response.

 

To combat this is can be really helpful to practice some slow and mindful breathing techniques. Which will not only make you feel a lot better but will also ensure you look a lot calmer and together too.

 

Skincare Secrets Every Girl Should Know


https://www.pexels.com/photo/adult-blur-close-up-eye-241756/

 

At some point or another in life, we all have problems with our skin. Whether you suffer from a dry, dehydrated complexion or excess oil, you can often feel like you will never have great skin. However, it can be achieved. Yes it will take work, and no it won’t happen overnight, but if you really want to have great skin, you need to learn the secrets. Every girl should know how to look after her skin and reach for a great complexion. Even if you’re suffering from breakouts, you can beat them and feel confident with your appearance once and for all.

 

You Are What You Eat

 

It will really help you when you start to realize that there’s a little truth in the age old saying ‘you are what you eat’. When you eat junk, it shows. Not only will you have low energy levels and put on excess weight, but it also comes out on your skin. However, when you nourish your body with the right foods, your skin will thank you. Being healthier doesn’t have to be hard, you can often enjoy great foods, like avocado and hummus, which work wonders for your skin.

 

Always Exfoliate

 

Dead skin cells can really wreak havoc. Not only can they clog your pores and cause breakouts, but they can also make your skin look dry and dull, and your foundation look lumpy. Even if you have the most sensitive skin, you can still find a gentle exfoliating product that works wonders for your skin. At least once a week (or more depending on your skin type), you should aim to incorporate exfoliate into your skincare regime. You will soon see the difference in your skin tone overall.

 

Find The Perfect Match

 

When you’re trying to cover up your skin problems, you’re going to need to make sure you find a foundation that can work with what you’ve got. Whether you need high coverage or something lighter, you need to be able to find the perfect match regarding formulation and color. If you’re looking for an airbrush finish, opt for a foundation that has a creamy texture, like those by AJ Crimson Cosmetics.

 

Hydration Is Key

 

Next up, hydration. Hydration really is key when it comes to your complexion – and this refers to how you hydrate your skin both on the inside and out. For your skin to look radiant and to have a natural glow, it needs to be healthy. Drinking the right amount of water daily can help with that. Not only will your skin look plump, but it will also look healthy too. You will also need to help it out by using the right kind of moisturizer for your skin type. Sometimes, you can find that oils work wonders too.

 

Keep Your Hands Off

 

And last but certainly not least, do not touch. When you start to pick at your face and play around with your skin, you could be making it a whole lot worse – especially if you have blemish prone skin. When you pop your pimples, you risk them getting worse and infecting other areas of your face. Even if you feel as if they’re looking really bad, you may benefit from persisting with your skincare efforts, and you’ll soon see them disappear.

 

A Woman’s Guide To Being Beautiful


(image: static.pexels.com)

 

What does it mean to be truly beautiful? We all have an idea, and sadly some of us think we fall short. We look at pictures of glamorous models in magazines and gaze enviously at their golden complexions and wonderfully proportioned bodies. Looking in the mirror afterward, we might think we are a poor comparison. I wonder if that is typical of you. If so, it is important you are aware of something. Remember those beautiful models in the magazines you are were looking at? With the aid of computer technology, those pictures have been airbrushed, eliminating any blemishes. The camera doesn’t lie? Yes, sometimes it does.

 

One of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood, Marilyn Monroe, said: “Boys think girls are like books, If the cover doesn’t catch their eye they won’t bother to read what’s inside.”

She understood that despite being beautiful on the outside, her inner beauty was overlooked. Hollywood and the majority of her fanbase were obsessed over her face and body. No wonder she struggled with insecurities throughout her career.

 

Beauty on the outside

 

It is important that you are happy with who you are. Whatever your body shape is, and however your face looks, there are probably some things you cannot change thanks to your genetics. However, that doesn’t mean giving yourself a makeover is a bad thing. Sometimes we all need a boost in self-confidence, and spending time on our looks is not harmful.

 

Starting at the top, many women enjoy going to the hair salon for a change in hair. Many salons offer a free consultation, so listen to the advice given. Whether your face is rounded, square or anywhere in between, your stylist will let you know what style best suits you. It is even possible to eliminate those bad hair days by asking for hair smoothing treatment, keeping you in control of your hair at the start of each day.

 

Looking after your skin, particularly in the hot summer months is vital. Those of you with lighter complexions are more at risk of sunburn than those with darker skin. It is also good to exfoliate weekly to get rid of those pesky zits. Moisturize the last thing at night and first thing in the morning to give your skin that lovely smooth feel, setting you up for the day ahead. A good detox is good too, for flushing out those nasty toxins. Fruit smoothies and plenty of water will make your skin glow, and renew your energy. Choose makeup colors that match your skin tone and eye color and seek advice from a friend or expert if you need too.

 

When it comes to your body, cardio exercises such as aerobics will help you lose any flab on your bum and tum, and swimming will add muscle strength. Eating healthy is always important, so eat the right foods at mealtimes to give your body the nutrients it needs. Avoid snacking, but if you do make sure you eat fruit and nuts instead of anything sugary. As well as a healthy workout, you need to ensure you get sufficient rest, preventing those tired, dark circles and bags under your eyes.

 

As we age, our bodies start to lose shape and our skin sags. It is inevitable; we cannot stay young forever. Some women, at least those who can afford it, opt for cosmetic surgery, from a breast augmentation specialist, for example, allowing them to throw away those padded bras for a breast implant.

 

Beauty on the inside

 

We have all seen those high school movies where the mean girls look beautiful on the outside but are cruel or shallow inside. Don’t let that be you, no matter how beautiful you think you are on the surface.

 

Often, our first impressions are based on how somebody looks physically. But over time, our thoughts might change as we get to know them. It is the attitude and character of somebody that truly matters, no matter their skin complexion.

 

Consider your friendships. Why do you value them? Chances are it is because of their kindness, patience, trustworthiness and their ability to make you smile. So be the same, treat others as you want to be treated, and let your real beauty shine through.

 

Fashion Hurts

Fashion. Style. Beauty. We love them; they enrich our lives, become a hobby, something we love and cultivate us. They’re like a pet almost, filling up our lives with color and interest… and just like a pet, they can bite us.

 

No one likes to think of the downsides of our enjoyment of these things, but they do exist. Sometimes, the best way of handling it is just to dig right down into the nitty gritty and find solutions – admitting it’s an issue is the first step, but the second is tackling it.

 

If you’re confused about how your love of fashion and beauty might be hurting you (and not just in terms of your wallet!), then read on – you might even find some fixes for problems you only just discovered that you had!

 

High Heels = Sore Legs

 

(source)

 

Shoes – for many of us, they’re the obsession that we just can’t quit… not that we want to anyway. There’s something about a long, high, stiletto heel that just gets the blood pumping.

 

Unfortunately, some of that blood tends to be circulating through your legs and feet – and they hurt like fire.

 

It’s not a given that high heels will be painful, but it is likely given the unnatural way you’re forced to walk. If you wear them too often or for too long, then the first sign of distress will come from the balls of your feet and your calves.

 

In the short term, magnesium supplements or baths are your best friend; their impact on muscles is detailed at http://www.ancient-minerals.com/magnesium-deficiency/need-more/ . Try a home massager to try and soothe some of the aggravated muscle knots. If this is a chronic issue for you, then it might be wise to consult the likes of http://actionphysio.ca/services/physiotherapy to ensure you’re not doing permanent damage to your muscles or joints. Oh, and wear flats every once in awhile!

 

Certain Makeup Ingredients = Upset Skin

 

(source)

 

If you find a makeup product that you love, it can be heartbreaking to realize it seems to contain a component that your body doesn’t agree with. You can find yourself breaking out, or just feeling a general sense of irritation and redness when you use the product.

 

It’s unlikely that you can change a product to suit you, but you can be more careful in the future. Compare the product you’ve reacted to to those you know are safe, and look for any ingredients only found in the problematic one. This should give you an idea of what to avoid in the future.

 

If you are dealing with a breakout because of a product, then treat it gently the same way you would any facial spots. Use cold compresses for the redness and under no circumstances should you pop them – no matter how satisfying you’d find it.

 

Shampoo = Irritated Scalp

 

(source)

 

There are many ingredients that can cause a scalp reaction, but the most common are SLS and sulfates. As these chemicals are being recognized as a problem more and more, there are plenty of alternatives on the market that don’t include them. Make the switch and see if it makes a difference to your poor scalp – it might even make your hair feel better, too!

4 Ways to Help A Beauty-Novice Friend With Their Style

Exercising your friendship muscle is always beneficial, and is necessary from time to time. Sometimes in order to show our friends how much we care, we need to let them know we’re there for them no matter what. If your friend has been through a rough time lately or is simply showing signs of low self-esteem about their style, helping them with the way they dress or groom can yield huge results for their life optimism.

 

This isn’t to say you should force a new wardrobe or lifestyle on someone, but subtly asking if you’d like to go shopping or go for a spontaneous makeover might be just what they need. Of course, just helping someone with a new style might not solve problems they’re facing, but it will let you know that you care about the way they feel day-to-day, and that’s important.

 

Follow this handy guide to help your beauty-unconscious friend feel like a million dollars.

 

  1. Go For A Spa Day

 

Beauty needn’t be a chore! Sometimes a spa day completed with manicures and pedicures is an amazing way to catch up and fully relax them for the rest of the points on this list. You can often find good deals for two friends attending the same spa, so be sure to make use of it and see what good your relaxing day out can accomplish!

 

  1. Help Them With Their Smile

 

Give your friend a genuine reason to smile by taking them to a specialist dentist and getting their teeth whitened. Make it a point that this is for the purpose of helping them smile about life, and they’ll more often than not get the point and go along with it, as well as thanking you for your efforts.

 

You can find frequently asked questions about teeth whitening here. It’s been proven that a better smile leads to happier moods, so with this, you’re showing your friend you’re always there to make them feel better. Plus you’ll both look fantastic at the end of it.

 

  1. Go To The Gym Together

 

Going to the gym together is an amazing way to feel better and fit your clothes in a shapely way. You’ll be less likely to neglect a session because neither of you will want to let the other down, but you’ll also find it easier to get through a gruelling session on the treadmill if your friend is there. This is a great way to naturally improve their confidence and show that you’re there through thick and thin!

 

  1. Take Them To A Salon

 

Sometimes a makeover is required, sometimes a new haircut is all it takes. Going to a salon helps you get among experts, as the staff will be well versed in all things beauty. Even if you’re the most style-focussed person, the opinion of someone who works in that field can be invaluable. It’s also a great time to have a good chat with your friend and feel incredible after you leave.

 

For the most part being a good friend is about being present, but showing you care in more tangible ways never goes to waste. They will thank you for being a super friend often, and maybe return the favor one day!

Do you ever have those moments where you look at someone, and their makeup is done perfectly, and you just can’t quite figure out how they’re able to pull it off? Then you look at yourself and feel like a clown? Well, the reality is that it’s probably not someone else is somehow better or worse than you at putting on makeup, it’s just that they’ve found a palette that compliments their skin tone better than you have. Finding the right tones and colours when it comes to your makeup could completely change the way you see your face. The best thing to do is speak to the people working at the makeup counter. These people have more experience with what looks good with certain skin tones that just about anyone else!

 

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures

 

When people think of cosmetic procedures, their minds almost inevitably jump to scary images of scalpels and surgery. Nips and tucks that leave you scarred and stretched in different and frightening ways. However, not all procedures are nearly as serious or invasive as that. From skin peels to dermal fillers,

there are plenty of simple and quick procedures that aren’t going to leave you looking like you’re made of plastic. You can find more information about dermal fillers here: http://nonsurgicalrhinoplastysydney.com.au/What-are-dermal-fillers-nose-jobs. Of course, as with any procedure, it’s incredibly important that you’re aware of any risks involved and that you’re completely sure about the decision that you’re making.

 

Go natural

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to throw out all of your beauty products! Although going completely without every so often can not only help your skin breathe more easily, but it can help boost your everyday confidence as well. But one of the best things to do is to go as natural as possible when it comes to choosing products. Products with lots of harsh chemicals and perfumes can end up doing more harm than good for your skin so it’s a great idea to stick with things that only include natural ingredients as much as you can.
