Some people may argue that beauty pageants are degrading to women, but nothing can be further from the truth. Beauty pageants do a lot of good, such as having scholarship programs and helping with community issues. Read on for some tips and tricks to enhancing your natural beauty.
Steam your face. You can do this by placing your face over a hot bowl of water with a towel over your head. This will open up your pores and draw out impurities and bacteria. You should clean your face, then rinse it with cold water so you close your pores back up.
If you like to enhance the beautiful color of your deep green or hazel eyes, use colors that will highlight the gold and green to almost simulate candlelight. These type of colors include silver pewter, pale shimmery lavender, light brown and even deep purple.
Instead of purchasing an expensive facial moisturizer, considering using coconut oil. Virgin coconut oil soothes the skin with deep-penetrating moisture; it can also delay formation of wrinkles and fine lines. It also adds benefits by eliminating the symptoms of acne, eczema and psoriasis because it has natural bacteria fighting elements and is a natural fungicide.
When you want the added beauty of curled lashes, and do not want to hassle with getting them to set, try this: before you use the curler, apply a thin coat of mascara to your lashes. Then while your lashes are still wet, use the curler. Doing this will allow you to curl your eyelashes faster and easier.
To get softer and sexier lips use a honey scrub! Take 3 drops of honey, and mix it with half a teaspoon of sugar. Apply the mixture liberally to your lips, and let it sit for about 10 minutes. When you wash it off, you’ll find your lips have gotten softer and may even look fuller.
If you wish to try out fake eyelashes, be certain you aren’t allergic to the type of glue that is used. Do a test by putting the glue on a small path of skin on your arm to see if there is a reaction. Testing a site for a few hours can determine if you are allergic or not. If there isn’t a rash, then it won’t be an issue.
