While some girls will look to their trusty makeup bag to pull off a great look, other girls will disregard this notion and go all naturelle. And with many skin types to consider, it can be hard to figure out what beauty products and advice to look into.
So today, we’re sharing 10 quick beauty tips for those who aren’t too obsessed with makeup, but still want to achieve the best look possible.
1. Choose The Right Colors
Everyone has different skin; therefore, it’s important to not only know your skin color, but to also test out which products go well with your skin.
When choosing lipstick at a store, just remember that the skin on the lips is way brighter than the skin on the hands. So, try the lipstick on your finger tips where the color is almost the same as on the lips.
Now, when choosing a foundation, don’t test it on the hand where the color is darker than on the face. Put a tiny bit on the inside of the forearm, or on the spot where the neck starts.
2. Wear A Hat
Believe it or not: A hat is a girl’s secret weapon. Wearing a hat lets you flatter your face shape, and allows you to skip washing or styling your hair for a day.
3. Single-Treat Your Pimples
Invest in over-the-counter single treatments that have been proven to get rid of those pesky pimples overnight.
Consider the following products for your acne:
- Use a patch that you can peel off and place on the blemish overnight. These patches can eliminate bacteria and acne infections without drying your skin. OR,
- Use a pimple cream that’s specialized to treat pimples overnight without drying your skin.
4. Correctly Air-Dry Hair
Allowing your hair to air-dry is easy and great for its health. Not letting it air-dry will cause your hair to look frizzy and limp.
5. Get Plenty Of Sleep
Plan to sleep at least 8 hours every night. Otherwise, bad sleep patterns can make your skin get tired. Plus, don’t forget to wash and moisturize your face before bedtime for the best results.
Drink plenty of water daily (at least 8 glasses). Also, stock up on fruits and vegetables that have a high-water content (e.g. watermelon, cucumber, orange, strawberry, grapefruit and cantaloupe).
7. Care For Your Skin Regularly
Quite often, it’s easy to stay super busy that you might not have time to pamper yourself. Therefore, it’s important to incorporate a regular skin care regimen in your routine.
Consider applying a fresh facial mask. After application, leave the mask on for 15 minutes, and then wash it off with lukewarm water. You can also do this with fruit pulps (like that of cherries), which can rehydrate your skin.
Also, consider using excellent nourishing agents, including:
These agents help you get glowing skin.
Finally, as you pamper yourself, don’t be afraid to put on some soothing music to get into the mood.
8. Practice Healthy Habits
Despite having a busy schedule, make it a habit to adapt more acceptable and healthy habits. Whether it’s avoiding stress factors, taking time out for yourself, or anything else that can be relaxing, do those things.
The truth is, stress can cause your body to produce a lot of hormones that can make your skin oily and tense. Consider doing yoga, meditation, or any breathing exercises to get you back to feeling great.
9. Use A Multipurpose Product
Want a product that can do more than one thing for you? It’s possible! If you’re in need of a product that not only has a good moisturizing formula, but also has SPF (what’s in sunscreen) and tinted coverage, then pick a product that has all of those. In other words, look for a product that is multipurpose, depending on what your skin is needing.
10. Low Pony
When it comes to ponytails, a low pony is a no-fuss hairstyle that’s polished, even in its “messy” appearance. Finish off the look by wrapping a strand of your hair from the bottom of the ponytail section around the hair band.
As you keep in mind these 10 quick beauty tips, you can rest assured that your skin will be great-looking, regardless if you’re a makeup guru or a plain-Jane. And as always, consult a beautician or certified dermatologist, if you have any questions or concerns about beauty products to use for your skin type.
