10 Basic Beauty Tips

By LifeMojo Team

Everyone wants to look their finest or best and as beautiful as possible. Some are born beautiful and some are made later. However, looking healthy and beautiful require lots of care. The first thing that people notice about your beauty is how healthy and beautiful yours skin stand out. So, to look healthy and beautiful you have to maintain a good healthy skin to reflect your healthy beauty. Here are 10 basic beauty tips to achieve beautiful skin that I found at lifeMojo:

  1. •  Wash Your Face Regularly: Wash your face at least twice a day but no more than 3 times a day with a cleanser that suits your skin. Select your cleanser depending on your skin type (dry, oily or combination). You can also choose aloe-vera for cleansing. Be careful not to cleanse too often. Also, never wash your face with hot or cold water as both can cause broken capillaries.
  2.  Exfoliate Regularly: Exfoliation helps to regain the required oils for the body and removes the dry, dead skin cells and dirt from the face. Try to exfoliate at least once or twice a week. You can also opt to cleanse your face on a regular basis.
  3. •  Moisturize: A basic law of beauty is that everyone, no matter her skin type, should moisturize. As it is important to maintain the moisture content, you should use a moisturizer daily. Even more special care should be taken in winters as the skin tends to become dry fast because of the cold. So, in winter, you should massage your body twice or thrice a day with the moisturizer.
  4. •  Don't Forget Sunscreen: Sunscreen is probably the most essential component of one's skincare regimen. Wrinkles, which are the number one sign of aging, are triggered by sun exposure. So it is essential to make use of sunscreen from your early years. Don't forget sunscreen even in winter and on cloudy days.
  5.  Protect Your Lips: Chapped lips can be your worst nightmare. They hurt a lot and they don't look good. You should apply a lip balm or oil or gel on the lips so that they won't chap out.
  6. •  Use a Humidifier: A humidifier will help to regain the smoothness of the skin. In winters, the skin becomes drier, so at that time a humidifier is necessary.
  7. •  Get Enough Sleep: If you are sleep deprived then your skin will look sallow, dull, tired, and saggy. A well-disciplined routine and fulfilling at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep is very important for getting a good skin.
  8. •  Drink Lots of Water: Water is of prime importance to maintain a good health and overall cleansing of the body. You are recommended to drink at least 7 to 8 glasses a day to keep your skin hydrated
  9.  Healthy Diet: Your diet also affects the skin, especially the vitamins that you take. You should eat vitamin rich food items such as oats, avocado, other fruits and vegetables. Concentrate on vitamin A and E in proper amount. Stay away from oily greasy food as it can lead to an onset of pimples.
  10.  Exercise Regularly: Exercising makes you sweat a lot and in the process your skin cleans itself. Exercising also helps you excrete the wastes and taking inside fresh oxygen.
