Standing right with confidence and believing in yourself are important aspects so that you feel good about yourself. After all, when radiating safety radiates beauty. However, every woman standing in front of a mirror can say that beauty secrets also count. Take note.
To be beautiful you do not need the most expensive, the most complicated, nor the most painful. Experts argue that most of us should only pay attention to a few basic beauty secrets that can help you look and feel good without spending a lot of time or money.
Tip # 1: Never underestimate the power of moisturizers
It does not matter if your skin is dry, normal, or oily. You do not have to invest in many creams, with only one product that is good you can have a dreamy skin. (If this month did not reach you for that moisturizer, look for our article this week on ‘natural masks’ … honey and oats are very moisturizing)
‘Sometimes all you need is a good moisturizer and a mild cleanser to take years off your face,’ says Rhoda Narins, MD, a professor at New York University and president of the American Society for Dermatological Surgery. ‘When the skin is dry, every wrinkle is accentuated, making you look older.’
If you’re in your 20s or 30s, doctors say, moisturizers will give you the protection you need to prevent premature aging, says Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon Darrick Antell, MD.
But then, what is a ‘good’ moisturizer for you? Dermatologist Carlos E. Crutchfield III, MD, says: ‘It’s a product that adds moisture and seals what it has achieved, allowing the skin to produce more moisture.’ What you need is to see which cream you should choose according to the individual needs of your skin.
If the skin goes from normal to dry, look for moisturizing creams containing alpha hydroxides. They help the skin produce more moisture by itself, says Crutchfield, associate clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine.
If the skin is very dry, we suggest products that use a technology called vesicular emulsion. “This technology uses microscopic spheres that make up layers that alternate moisture and water for continuous moisturizing,” Crutchfield says. “If the skin is greasy, look for a light, gentle moisturizer.” Fat is not moisture, so you have too much Of fat you still need to moisturize ‘.
Tip # 2: Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product.
Before you see a plastic surgeon, before spending half the salary on anti-aging creams, wear sunscreen. We all know that sunscreen reduces the risk of skin cancer, but do you also know that it is an amazing beauty secret that helps maintain youthful skin? People who expose themselves to the sun are wrinkled long before their time.
Without the protection of the sunscreen, if you expose your skin (even if only for a couple of minutes) every day in the sun (and not necessarily on a sunny day, as UV rays penetrate those gray clouds), in a short time you will see changes Remarkable in the skin, says the American Academy of Dermatology.
‘Not only will there appear more wrinkles and lines, but also spots and veins’. The skin becomes rough and loose, all thanks to the sun. Crutchfield advises choosing a sunscreen with SPF 15 or more. Apply every hour or two, and wear regular sunscreen before putting on make-up.
Tip # 3: Choose your cleanser wisely.
If what you use daily to clean your face is soap and water, you can go back and reconsider your cleaning strategy. Dermatologists say that one of the best beauty tips is to use a mild cleanser and use it sparingly.
Washing your face too often – more than twice a day – can cause you to damage the natural lipid barrier, which is the protective mantle that keeps your skin lubricated to look and feel healthy.
‘Once the protection is lost and the barrier of impermeability is interrupted, the skin becomes dry’. This, in addition to making you look old, can cause itching, burning and stinging, says Crutchfield. Wash your skin no more than twice a day and choose your cleanser wisely.
Tip # 4: Use the right tools for the right job
You can have Dior eye shadows, Chanel base, Clarins suntan and Yves Saint Laurent eyeliner. However, if you do not have the right application tools, the benefits of these products will be lost.
Brushes and brushes should be soft, but also have substances so that the products can be distributed along the surface of your skin. If you wet a brush in the shade or blush and the color falls before it reaches your face, this is a bad brush, experts say. If you are going to invest in good products, choose good makeup tools. You only have to do it once.
Tip # 5: Hair treatment and make-up every 2 years
If you get to your alumni meeting and your friends tell you that you look like a picture, run, run, run to the nearest beauty salon. “Ideally, your image, including hair and make-up, should be renewed at least every two years,” says Beverly Hills expert Nick Chavez. Keep a modern look, Chavez says, because you’ll look younger. If it’s been a long time since you’ve had a change, take advantage and go to your hairdresser and beauty shop and do not be afraid to ask for help. This month do not buy those boots that you want so much, invest in you. Remember, it is once every two years.
