If you have a beauty routine, then you probably follow it faithfully. But did you know that beauty routine can be at home? You can even do them when you’re on vacation. That’s right, you don’t need a full-fledged beauty routine to keep yourself looking great.
First, grab a cold drink and a slice of fresh cucumber. This will serve to soothe aching muscles and give you a jump start on your beauty routine at home. But once you get out of bed, can be on the brink of weakness due to the lack of hydration. So begin your beauty routine early in the morning, get to the sink, and take a deep, cold drink containing about two tablespoons of ice blended with one-fourth teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Moisturizer and Cleanser
The next step in your beauty routine at home is to apply a daily moisturizer. Remember that a daily moisturizer is not a wax or cream, but rather it is a product that is applied to the skin to restore it to a proper balance of moisture. Most people think that a daily moisturizer is a greasy, heavy product, but this simply is not true. The best moisturizers for dry or damaged skin contain emu oil, which is very light and easily absorbed by the skin.
Every week, you should also take a daily cleansing product such as a cleansing balm or a pumice stone. Cleansing products are wonderful because they remove makeup and dirt, which can clog pores and cause breakouts and acne. But for optimum results, you should combine a cleansing product with a hydrating mask. For best results, always use a product containing ingredients such as benzene gel, witch hazel and/or retinol. A good cleansing mask will restore elasticity to your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Also, do not forget to incorporate a daily facial mask into your beauty routine.
The final step in your beauty routine is to apply a finishing touch to your hair. If you have longer hair, you can either cut or clip extensions, which will further liven up your look. For those of you who do not have long hair, you can simply wash it, sweep it through a curling iron and then pin it up with a bun. A great finishing touch for your hair is to dust highlights all over with a small brush. You can achieve these finishes with small sponge applicators, bronzers and sponges.
At this point, most women are excited about their new beauty routine. However, even though you can create these looks in the comfort of your own home, you should remember that the environment and lighting are not conducive to a perfectly polished look. As such, the best thing to do is apply your make up at home and then take it outside to achieve that perfect outdoor look. If you are applying your make up at home, you may want to add a few personal touches to your products to enhance them.
Beauty Routine Checklist
One important item on your beauty routine checklist that you should not skip is a moisturizer. Even if you are applying just a sheer layer of foundation, a moisturizer is imperative for long-term skin health. Make sure that you purchase a lightweight moisturizer for daytime use and a heavier one for nighttime use. Some people even prefer to apply a sunscreen before they apply their moisturizer so that their skin has a chance to absorb it properly. Sunscreen will protect your skin from the damaging UV rays of the sun and also help to prevent blemishes from forming.
Once you have applied your face moisturizer, you can begin to work on repairing your body and hair. Start by exfoliating your skin with a loofah or exfoliating brush to remove dead skin cells. Next, you will want to apply your anti-aging moisturizer to areas such as your neck, shoulders, hands, and even your knees. Remember to only apply your beauty routine products to your dry skin. If you have oily skin, wait until your body oil has increased a little before applying your moisturizer. By following these steps, you will ensure the health of your skin and maintain its youthful appearance for a very long time.
