Steam your face. You can do this by placing your face over a hot bowl of water with a towel over your head. This will open up your pores and draw out impurities and bacteria. You should clean your face, then rinse it with cold water so you close your pores back up.
Instead of paying for an expensive moisturizer, use coconut oil. Virgin coconut oil easily penetrates the skin providing soothing moisture, while at the same time reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As an added benefit, coconut oil has also been shown to help with psoriasis, acne and eczema.
Take care not to over tweeze your eyebrows. Repeated over-plucking can result in areas where hair refuses to grow back, resulting in bald spots. If you have already developed bare spots in your brows, fill in the areas with a brow pencil temporarily while applying a product to regrow the hair.
Use cream cleansers, especially on your face. Soap can dry your skin and lead to skin that appears weathered and older. Keep your skin beautiful by using cleansers that are more like lotion and cream and less like harsh cleaner. Your skin will thank you for the change in beauty supplies.
Eat more tomatoes as part of your beauty routine. Tomatoes have many health benefits, and special benefits for beauty. Studies have shown that people who have a diet high in tomatoes, also have less wrinkles. They also are less susceptible to sunburn than people who have no tomato in their diet.
Put petroleum jelly onto your fingernails on a regular basis. This stimulating action encourages nail growth and keeps your nails and cuticles moisturized. When you polish your nails, make sure to use a top coat to prevent the polish from chipping.
Bump up your hair color. If you have dyed your hair and the results aren’t as dramatic as you like you can fix this by adding a box of hair coloring to your shampoo. Lather it into your hair and let it set for 5 minutes, then rinse it out.
Epsom salt has many beauty benefits you should take advantage of. You can use Epsom salts for a laxative or to soothe your sore body. You can also mix it with lavender to create a topical paste.

Plain old toilet paper can be quite useful if you have a glow from doing your best moves dancing at the club! It’s the perfect blotting paper. Try using the toilet paper to blot your skin and in no time your skin will be oil free.
Adding gloss will help your lips look beautiful and full. Outline your lips with bronzer darker than your skin. Try putting on a top coat of gold, coral, or peach lip gloss.
You may not have the time to do a full makeup job on your eyes. Should this be the case, try a quick smudgy eye look by combining a small amount of lip balm and a small amount of either mascara or eyeliner on the tip of your finger. Rub to an even consistency, then rub across your eyelids as close to the lashes as you can. A smudgy look is what you’re going for. Add two coats of mascara, and you’re ready to go.
When looking at beauty products, you should always be sure to check out as many reviews as possible. Sometimes it is not worth it to spend a lot for a product when you can purchase the same type of product for much less. Other times it is essential that you spend the extra money to get the right product.

If your skin looks like it could use a wake-up, try this idea. Use a hot, damp washcloth (with a few drops of your favorite essential oil on it, or plain is fine too) and press it gently against your face for a minute. Finish with a splash of very cold water. The heat will improve your facial circulation and open your pores, while the cold water will tighten your skin and wake you up generally.
