Boost Your Looks and Your Confidence

July 11th, 2010

I think you will agree with me that the way you look affects your mood and confidence. We all have had instances of doubting our beauty but there are tips and tricks you can use to boost your looks.

I jotted down several skin care and beauty tips that can boost your looks and you’ll know, confidently, that you look great.

Boost Your Overall Beauty

1) Post Beach Skin Care: Too much sun exposure will increase UV induced dryness to your skin. Reduce the damage and keep your skin young and supple by using a body balm for your post-sun routine.

Hydrating your skin with a body balm will heal, nourish & maintain the glow of your sun-kissed skin.

2) Use A Lip Balm With SPF: This tip should be used all year-round as the lips lack a protective outer layer, so they’re incredibly vulnerable to UV rays, causing them to lose volume and wrinkle.

You can use a lip balm with a built-in SPF of at least 15 even underneath an SPF-containing lipstick or gloss to further guard against thinning, dryness, and sun spots.

3) Sun Protection From A Pill: The benefits of antioxidants are numerous and some are, youthful and glowing skin. Many experts agree that they are an essential part of your diet for overall health and healthy skin.

There are many sources like fruits and vegetables but a new study focuses on antioxidant packed pills like Heliocare.

The fern extracts from these pills, according to a study conducted by the University of Miami School of Medicine, showed significantly reduced UVA-related DNA damage that leads to wrinkling and brown spots. (Consult your physician or nutritionist before using any supplements).

4) Don’t Let Your Hands Betray Your Age

The back of your hands have very delicate skin and the sun and other factors can inflict heavy damage on them. For some, your hands are one of the most neglected body parts, and broadcast your age very quickly.

This is easily fixed by following some of the very things you do for your face.

Moisturize, exfoliate and use sunscreen regularly.

I always recommend that you take one thing at a time so you don’t become overwhelmed with your skin care routine. In this way, little by little you can win the battle of staying ageless for as long as you like.
Beauty is achievable for all, especially when you know what to do and are safely guided to that end. I hope you find these tips helpful and if you are not already doing them, start!
