Believe it or not we now have less than one month to prepare for the New Year. This means thinking about where will you go and with whom, what are you going to wear, what hairstyle would be the best for that evening, change diet a bit so you can fit into that lovely dress you like, and of course, worrying about your skin. It would be a disaster to have an outbreak or a bad hair day just before the big party, so it’s important to start preparing on time to ensure that everything is just right.
Because of cold weather and many other factors your lips can be dry and parched. Wind and show make it difficult for them to stay soft and hydrated, and sometimes even applying lipstick or lip balm cannot soothe them and you are left with dry lips that can even bleed when you smile. You can easily prevent this from happening by exfoliating lips with a soft brush and some lip balm. Also, making a mixture of brown sugar and some honey can also help hydrate your lips and get rid of the dead skin for a perfect smile even during coldest days. Use olive oil, shea and coconut butter, and honey to hydrate and soften your lips for perfect kisses and radiant smiles.
Outbreaks and dry skin – you never know what’s worse! This is especially a problem if you have combination skin, and some parts of your face are oily while other ones are dry; you feel that every treatment is wrong. Don’t forget to exfoliate once a week, use gentle cleanser every day, and apply masks every few days. Ultraceuticals cosmetics for all skin types has wonderful products that fight oily skin and hydrate dry one. Look for products with salicylic acid if you have problem with acne, and hyaluronic acid and glycerin if your skin is dry. Clay masks and face oils will ensure your skin is both free of excess oil and hydrated enough so it doesn’t feel flaky and dry.
Brittle nails are a pain in the neck and it can be very frustrating especially when you would like to have long and healthy ones. Getting your nails done in a beauty salon and applying different gels can be demanding since you have to have them done every few weeks, but there is a way to harden your own nails so you don’t have to worry about breaking them ever again. Use simple mixture you can make at home, all you need are 3 cloves of peeled garlic, one vitamin E capsule, 20 drops of lemon juice, and some transparent nail polish. Mix all the ingredients in a bottle of nail polish, use for a month and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results.
You are not a Wonder woman, and it would be insane to think that not a single blemish will be visible on that day, but if you are patient and dedicated you can ensure that your skin, hair, and lips are just like those of Hollywood movie stars. Be thorough and persistent, taking time to take care of yourself is indeed time well spent.
