Beauty tips, we all have them. But are we sure they are good? We try to get back on the right track thanks to 12 make-up and bulk care tips. For those who already know them, bravo! For those who are lost in the whirlwind of beauty, these simple and effective beauty tips could quickly become your essentials to display beautiful skin and a fresh complexion. Follow the guide!
1. Eliminate excess sebum
It is the basis for displaying beautiful skin daily and eliminating sebum and other impurities that blur the complexion: a good cleansing of the face. For this, arm yourself with a good cleanser to clear skin! Be careful to choose it according to your skin type, oily skin will not have the same needs as dry skin for example. You can perfect your cleaning routine by applying a small lotion to remove limescale from the water. Finally, do not forget to do a little scrub once a week to remove dead cells.
2. To avoid dark circles, take into account the circulation of blood
Now that we have perfectly cleansed skin, let’s move on to the “hydration” phase. An essential step whether you wear makeup or not. We start by taking care of the outline of his eyes. But be careful, not just any old way! We agree, we usually apply our eye serum or cream by massaging the eyes from the inside to the outside (right?). But a serious mistake, if we want to be effective in a circle or a morning pocket, it is better to respect the lymphatic paths.
Indeed, these nasty problems are the result of poor circulation of the blood, and not following the right route to stimulate energy in the eye area is more or less doing nothing. And we overworked women don’t need that. So now, with the pulp of the index finger, we perform a mini-drainage by gently massaging the skin by small pressure in circular movements (and not by stretching so as not to wrinkle the skin and facilitate the appearance of wrinkles), a ten times from the outer corner to the inner corner of the eye. Then we do the same thing all around the orbit.
3. Apply your care from the bottom up
Hydration always but with the rest of the face. And here is a simple little trick but which is important when you apply your moisturizer: the best is to avoid pushing the face down (it already does very well on its own). It’s a matter of weightlessness. To properly hydrate the skin of his face with his day cream, we start from the neck to go up to the forehead, and from the center of the face to the top of the cheekbones. The push-up effect is guaranteed. A small step for us, a big step to defy the laws of gravity.
And of course, before applying your treatment, you choose it well. For example, if you have normal to combination skin, opt for a light, not the too rich treatment that will provide you with sufficient hydration every day without greasing the skin.
4. Leave your face moisturizer away from the eye area
Another beauty tip for applying your cream: be careful to avoid the entire area around the eye. Why? Because our moisturizer is far too heavy in water for this fragile area. The skin of the outline is so fine it absorbs everything, too much. And who says too much water, says swelling skin, says the appearance of puffiness. It is for this reason in particular that there are treatments specifically adapted to this area (no, it is not ONLY marketing).
5. The peel for a new skin
Peeling, do you know? It is a technique consisting in making “peel” the skin. Yes, you read that right! The peel burns a thin part of the skin with acid to renew the upper layers of the epidermis. This technique is exclusively practiced by specialists. Allowing many of our small “imperfections” to disappear, the peel is also ideal for getting rid of wrinkles. A somewhat miracle technique that costs between 150 and 500 euros.
Fortunately for our wallet, cosmetics got involved. Now the peeling is also accessible to all thanks to beauty products at more affordable prices. However, the formulas are less concentrated and the peel is, therefore, a little less effective in erasing fine lines and wrinkles.
6. Apply your foundation with your hands
Now that you have beautiful, perfectly clean, hydrated skin, it’s time to put some makeup on. Then again, there are a few tips to know to flaunt a perfect complexion. Whether you opt for a fluid foundation or a tinted cream, the same fight: stop using brushes, let’s go with your fingers. Why? Because the hands are “warm” and allow the molecules of the product to work with each other. The material is ideally warmed, resulting in it melts better on the skin and the effect is much more natural. Of course, we don’t forget to wash our hands thoroughly before and after.
7. Add a drop of serum to the foundation
Another advice for working on your complexion that comes directly from a beauty specialist. To thin out your foundation, give it a more natural look and give us a pretty glow in the process, add a drop of serum to the palm of your hand before applying it. Goodbye the plaster effect and too much makeup
7. Apply your concealer correctly
Beauty tip # 1: Take it easy. Why? Because the concealer is more of an eye illuminator than a real camouflage tool. He plays with light to create a kind of optical effect, but his power is limited. When you have dark circles under your eyes, it is better to go to sleep. The concealer will do nothing.
Beauty tip # 2: To apply it, tap it with your finger to avoid ending up with a big mark and new folds under the eye. It is applied “in a triangle” starting in small dotted lines from the inner corner of the eye, going straight down to the level of the bottom of the nose, and going up diagonally towards the outer corner of the eye. We spread without leaving the triangle and avoiding
9. To awaken the gaze, think of a pencil
After a night of madness, to arrive fresh at the office, apply a line of the pencil inside the eye before blending lightly on the eyelids to erase small redness (shame). Guaranteed eye boost!
10. Exfoliate your lips
When we talk about exfoliating, we are not talking about taking out the pumice stone. You should know that the skin of the lips is 5 times thinner than the rest of the face. An ultra-sensitive area, therefore, must be taken very great care. To make it very soft, you have to get rid of its dead skin (from time to time) and hydrate it intensely (all the time). So we give ourselves a little massage with specific gentle exfoliants (a little honey and sugar, it also works), and we can take advantage of the night to offer him a mask with an ultra-hydrating, nourishing, plumping balm. .. To wake up with pink baby lips.
11. To remove imperfections, put your fingers away
You are going to tell me, “how to remove without touching?”. It’s true, blackheads, small pimples … are not the most beautiful effect on our face. But back ugly nails and other blackhead removers! Better not to touch them and treat them gently. Why? Because piercing them would only slow their demise. This is the best way to make the infection worse and end up with a nasty mark. It’s a bit like waking up a sleeping volcano.
We will avoid, and instead get down to finding the right astringent lotion (the best for tightening pores, drying out imperfections, and unifying the complexion), remove make-up and gently cleanse morning and evening, and wait a little bit. A little tip for homemade enthusiasts, you can also remove a small unsightly pimple by applying a mixture of water + baking soda on the unwanted. Leave on for a few minutes to dry it out. Let’s avoid making our skin an enemy, it will give it back to us!
We knew that sleeping to have more beautiful skin. But playing sports, isn’t that paradoxical? Not that much … Quite simply because sweating is to evacuate both stress and all the toxins that clutter and tire our body through the pores. To put it simply, by boosting perspiration, the skin “self-cleans” and eliminates impurities and dead cells, while improving microcirculation for better irrigation and better nutrition of the skin tissues.
The skin is better hydrated, softer, clearer, smoother, sharper … in short, radiant. Also, it is valid for the whole body. For the lazy, a trip to the hammam or sauna from time to time, and voila.
The best recipe: 40 minutes of racing (at the supermarket that does not count) + a hammam of about fifteen minutes. Without forgetting to drink a lot.
