Over time, beauty practices have evolved from simple ones that help only a few skin issues to more complex practices that require beauty tools and equipment to address a beauty emergency. While you may have already figured out your beauty routine to a tee, exploring other beauty practices is always a good thing. It broadens your knowledge and it lets you learn new techniques that you may find handy in the future. Here are some beauty practices worth a try. You may have already heard of some but have not tried them yet. Read on and discover why these beauty practices are worth giving a shot.
Exfoliate regularly – this is actually one of the most popular beauty practices that are really beneficial and easy to follow yet not a lot of us practice it. Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin cells and when your skin is free from those, it’s smoother and softer. Many products, especially in facial care, feature microbeads that act as the exfoliant. However, this is not enough. Invest in a good skin care tool like a Clarisonic for a more thorough exfoliating. You can use tools like this on both your face and your body so it’s a really good buy. It can be pricey but you’ll see your money’s worth when you get soft, radiant and glowing skin.
Use coconut oil as an alternative – if you only knew what goes inside all those beauty products you use and how they would affect you in the years to come, you’d come running out the door looking for an alternative. Staying beautiful now is important but what about later? Later when all chemicals have taken a toll on your skin? Wouldn’t you be glad if there was a way to get beautiful without the risk and harm in the future? Luckily, there is one thing that can solve most of your beauty needs and that’s coconut oil. Coconut oil is a great alternative to a lot of things you use in your everyday beauty routine like mouthwash, conditioner, moisturizer, makeup remover, lip balm, lotion, body scrub and many more.
Moisturize – this is another popular beauty practice that a lot of us take for granted until the drying cold months come. Moisturizing should be done regularly everyday and not just on days when dry skin starts creeping in. Bring a travel size lotion with you wherever you go and apply whenever you feel like your skin is drying up. The sun, the air conditioning at the office, the heater at home – all these and more can dry up your skin so make sure to keep it moisturized throughout the day.
Use toothpaste to eliminate pimples – I’m pretty sure you’re just as annoyed as I am at the fact that pimples always tend to show up before a big event. Luckily, there’s a tried and tested beauty practice that can help with it. Applying a generous amount of toothpaste on the area where your pimple appeared will help dry it up overnight so it’s less visible and it’s easier to conceal.
