Most women know that even if they wear the skimpiest of clothes, if they don’t have good skin, it’s all over. Skin care is one of the most important components of personal grooming. In a bid to help our readers who have trouble with their skin, we are giving some basic tips on how to keep your skin young and sexy.
Firstly a healthy skin needs a rich diet, hence you should eat food stuff which is rich in proteins, mineral and vitamins C, B and E. Fruits, nuts, and vegetables are also needed for good skin. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water, as it not only keeps your skin hydrated, but also will prevent dark circles from forming under your eyes. Besides right eating, overall fitness along with regular exercise (going to a gym full of hunks) definitely helps your skin to remain young.
If you go out in the sun often, put a sun screen lotion, else your skin will get tanned and you will start developing wrinkles (you would not want that at a young age, would you). Further also start putting night cream, but make sure that you only apply night cream, not any other cream, for the former has special ingredients which allow your skin to breath. Scrub your face at least once in a week and apply fruit or milk protein packs, as this will make your skin glow.
Visit your salon at least once every month for a clean up, if you have oily skin or black or white heads, (just think what your guy will feel, if you turn up with them).
Since most girls nowadays wear real short dress, waxing your hair is a real must, so try cold wax at home, it’s an easier option; alternatively, if you have the beard, go in for permanent hair removal (get relief from the regular hassle of waxing). Massage your body once a month either with almond or olive oil, add some drops of lavender to the oil, as it will relax your body. For the extra oomph, ask your hubby to rub the oil in, after you applied it on, and enjoy a blissful massage and you know what later. If you go for massages outside, go to a masseurs who knows how to activate your pressure points, it will really exhilarate and you will feel like a new person.
To take care of sexy hands and feet, most salons offer manicure and pedicure, if you want something extra, go in for bleaching. Some women also go in for hand and body scrub and later apply packs for that extra shine. Since men are also frequenting salons post the metro sexual age, both you and your guy can go to the salon together and spend some quality time together.
Remember genetics also affects your skin, so if your parents have bad skin, beware and start taking extra precautions, for it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Even if you have good skin, keep working on it, for who does not want excellent skin. It’s wrong to believe that only actress and models have good skin, some of them really have bad skin, trust me; I have met them without make up and virtually missed them.
Stress, the bane of modern times, also affects our skin, so try to cultivate a positive attitude and daily sit in mediation for at least 10 minutes. Yoga and other stress- busting techniques should also be adopted , for if you are stressed out, it will show on your skin, no matter how much you try to cover it up with make-up. Stress also affects your blood circulation, which is bound to mess up your skin.
Before heading for that all important party, cleanse your face and apply moistures before putting foundation, you can also rub ice cubes on your face, which will open your pores and make your face fresher. Make sure that your foundation suits your skin type, neither too light nor too dark. Test it on your hand; ideally it should be one shade lighter than your hand shade.
Your eye make-up, should be such that, it should make your eyes more attractive (remember your eyes talk a lot) then comes the lipstick, its colour shade should be such, that your guy is attracted towards your lips, also try a great lip gloss. Last but not the least, wear a sizzling perfume and set the party ablaze.
When you return from the bash, however tired you are, please remove your make-up, before you hit the sack. Use an eye make remover to remove your eye make-up and cleanser to remove your face make-up.
Age always takes it toll and woman above the age of 35, have the real problem of wrinkles on their face and body, don’t worry, try anti-wrinkle creams, apply it for 20 minutes and then wash it off, but please don’t go out with it.
Having done with the make-up and skin, now we come to yet another important topic i.e. clothes and skin. Make sure that the colours of your itsy-bitsy, cleavage-showing outfits match your skin, if not you will end up looking horrible and your fashion rivals will never let you live down this mistake. Hence, if you have a whitish complexion, then your dress should be in bright tone. Choose colours such as offwhites, yellows, reds, greens, olive or aquas.
Similarly, if you have dark skin, then you would be best attired in browns, rusts, burgundys, pinks, blacks and other warm tones. Last, but not the least, if you are the sexy fair skin babe, try out beiges, sands, black, peaches, olive and other muted tones. In closing, all we can say is that your skin is very important to your overall appearance, so please take good care of it.
