Beauty Tip

Beauty Tip

Some of the greatest beauty tips that I can give you are from my family, that have been past down in generations. There are also some beauty tips that I have learnt from my recent work within a large beauty store in my hometown and also some tips which I have picked up from travels and learnt from random people, which I have found to be very useful and true.

My personal beauty tips and ideas are as follows:

- Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
- Do at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise each day.
- Take 1 vitamin and mineral tablets (I personally take a multivitamin tablet every morning).
- Get from 6-8 hours of sleep each evening.
- Cleanse and moisturise every morning and evening. Leaving make-up on over night is an absolute no-no.
- Leave spots and blemishes, do not touch them, except with a treatment stick (tea tree oil). I find this very hard to do, so just make sure that your hands are always very clean.
- Exfoliate 2 times a week.
- Do not wear foundation every day, unless it is totally necessary, this does not let the skin breathe, instead use a tinted moisturiser.
- Waxing is by far the most economical and flattering way of removing hair, it is not that expensive and the effects can last up to 8 weeks, plus the hair grows back thinner.
- If you can afford it, invest in a massage, facial and back mask every 1-2 months. You will feel absolutely amazing after the sessions, ready to take on the world!
- To remove blackheads, use an exfoliating and then deep-cleansing mask every week, this ought to keep them at bay, also if you can afford it, a little microdermabrasion session at your local salon will work wonders.
- Tea-bags then cucumber slices will revive your eyes in 10 minutes, if lessened eye-bags and a sparkle in your eyes is just what you need.
- To look and feel great just before an event or a night out, paint you nails to make you feel more feminine and elegant.
- Lip balm (especially Body Shop's Vitamin E lip balm) is an essential to life for me. It gives you a great pout and makes you feel really confident. My advice is to never leave the house without it.
- This summer, there is a burst of natural highlights on the catwalks, not only for hair but also for the face. So go out and get some shimmery blushers and highlight foundation and try the natural look, I can guarantee more faces will turn your way walking down the street.

One of the best 'Beauty Tip' books I have come across on the internet which gives top model beauty secrets, and tips from their stylists is 1001 Beauty Tips, Secrets and Techniques. It contains some great ideas about how to keep looking and feeling great inside and out. Or for some ideas from the stars, go to Get Gorgeous Now which has, it seems, a beauty tip from each of the most gorgeous stars on todays red carpet.
