Many of us think to look beautiful we must have many different types of beauty products and a lot of cosmetics and makeup to put on before feeling it. I don’t think so! You start to feel beautiful from the inside so let’s get it straight now, if you haven’t tried using all of these basic rules for beauty then forget about using any of those beauty products you bought because with these basic rules alone, you will not only look beautiful, you will also feel beautiful.
Since your feet have to support the whole of your body, they are certainly worth pampering. As they spend so much of the time hidden away in other materials, it is worth remembering that plastic and man-made fibers in shoes and socks often cause the feet to sweat quite heavily, and therefore a foot scrub or thorough wash each night is essential.
Having an all-over wash each day and night ensures that perspiration which gets trapped under clothes is washed away, leaving you refreshed. After you have washed, spray on a deodorant to ensure that your body keeps fresh and an antiperspirant under the arms to help prevent wetness, too. Under-arm hair prevents the antiperspirant from working effectively, so make sure you shave too.
Hands and nails
Hands and nails need constant care and attention. Your hands shouldn’t look rough and hard and nails shouldn’t be dirty, split or break off easily. Get hand lotion to rub on your hands daily, go do manicure and keep your nails as neat as possible. Check that there is enough calcium in your diet(milk).
If your skin has a naturally fine translucent texture that is blemish free and a good even color, then you are more than lucky. Most skin is subject to change, whether it is from diet, climatic conditions or health, and for these reasons it should always be treated with the greatest respect. Decide what skin type you have: if it’s dry, you’ll soon know, because after you’ve washed with soap and water, it feels flaky and taut. If it’s oily, you’ll have an open-pored skin which is very prone to spots and blackheads which should be treated accordingly. Make your skin look glowing, it reflects perfect beauty.
To look its best, hair needs to be kept clean and in good condition. If yours doesn’t look as good as it might, check your diet and your shampoo. There are all types of shampoo to suit all types of hair, but the best ones are the ones without sulfate. Always keep your hair moisturized and condition well when washing. Avoid too much heat on your hair and less relaxer. Remember that, natural hair rocks.
Teeth need to be kept looking sparkling white and trouble-free by brushing them twice daily. It’s the toothpaste, not the brushing that is important, use a good medically approved toothpaste. Go for dental check up three times a year.
When you looked in the mirror did you automatically straighten your shoulders and pull your tummy in? Slouching is probably the most common crime in tall people and just succeeds in pulling the body into an ugly and unnatural shape. If you are tall, be proud of it. Hold shoulders back and tuck in that tummy and bottom in.
The amount needed varies tremendously from person to person, but on average, eight hours of sleep is sufficient for most people. One night without much sleep won’t harm most people (and you can make up the backlog with one extra-long sleep) but constant lack of sleep will soon show and affect your beauty. Eyes become bloodshot and puffed, with dark circles appearing beneath them and eventually skin and hair suffers too.
A firm, supple body indicates that you are fit and trim but areas of flab around the upper arms, waist and thighs are a danger sign and mean that you are in need of a tone-up. Dieting can lead to weight loss, but exercising can cause loss of inches. Together, they will not only make you feel more lively but give you a better, firmer shape altogether.
