Makeup can help enhance your looks but there is no substitute for natural beauty that comes from being healthy and happy. Health and happiness shine through and give you a radiance that can’t be found in any bottle of makeup. It is something that you can’t fake and you can’t buy. But you can attain it by using these simply guidelines to a happier, healthier you.
Your health is vital to how you look so it is important to take care of yourself. This means eating right, getting enough sleep, getting exercise and not letting stress drag you down. Fortunately, these 4 things work together for a cumulative effect. Eating properly will make you feel better and help you deal with stress better as well. Exercise will help keep you toned, will help relieve stress and will help you sleep better. There is no makeup available that can give you the effects of a well toned body or a restful nights sleep. All of these things will contribute to a healthier look.
When it comes to makeup, you need to know what type of makeup is best for you. You need to choose a makeup that suits your skin type, whether it is dry or oily. You also need to know the undertones of your skin and whether they are warm or cool. Always choose a foundation that matches your skin because foundation that is too light or too dark will only make you look artificial and as if you have something to hide. You want your makeup to enhance your natural beauty, not cover it up.
Never overlook the little self care things, such as keeping your hair trimmed and grooming your fingernails. Unkempt, unhealthy hair, along with scraggly nails and chipped nail polish all detract from your natural beauty. You don’t have to go overboard with a luxury manicure or hairstyle. A simple, healthy and well cared for appearance is better looking than any overdone manicure or extreme hairstyle.
Learn to avoid things that will detract from your beauty and health. Smoking causes wrinkles and dull skin. Too much sun causes skin damage, wrinkles and age spots. Drinking alcohol can dehydrate you, disrupt your sleep and prematurely age you. They are all fine in moderation but should be avoided when possible.
Sticking to a daily routine of beauty can pay off in the long run. Make skin care, exercise, hydration and grooming a part of your daily routine. Little things like always cleaning your face of makeup before bed and applying moisturizer will pay off in a more youthful and healthy look.
Avoid stress and learn how to deal with it. Stress can cause wrinkles and can lead you to make unhealthy choices and make you look chronically unhappy. Deal with stress by exercises or find ways to deal with it that are good for you. Taking care of yourself makes you feel better and exude more confidence.
It is natural to want to look your best. But true beauty is not something that can just be bought in a bottle. It is something that is a reflection of you, something that radiates from your inside. So take the time to take care of yourself and to establish healthy habits and winning ways.
