Every once in a while, you may find yourself stressed out with everything that is happening in your life. Be it school, work, or household chores, these small worries can pile up and eventually take its toll on your appearance. Fortunately, there is one simple secret to looking young and healthy: moisturizing.
Sure, eating a balanced diet and exercise can create wonders on your body, but maintaining a beauty regimen that focuses on keeping your body well-moisturized will give you a unique glow. To achieve this, here are the top 5 things you need to have at hand.
- Lipbalm for your Lips
Caring for your lips is one of the easiest ways to make small yet significant changes in your appearance. Make sure to have a lip balm in handy, regardless of the weather. You can also use a moisturizing lipstick, but lip balms are the way to go if you are often in a hurry to do your daily chores. Bonus tip: lightly brush your lips with a toothbrush to remove dead skin cells after brushing your teeth in the morning.
- Night Cream for your Eyes
Some people tend to forget that the eyes are indeed the ‘windows to the soul’, and that they require proper moisturizing as well. Use eye cream before going to bed, and you will notice that you look less tired and drained the morning after. Bonus tip: after drinking tea, take the used tea bag, pat it try, and put it on your eyes to reduce soreness.
- Protection for your Face
For your face, use a moisturizing cream that also provides protection from the sun. The skin on your face is very susceptible to the harmful effects of the sun’s rays, so moisturizing it alone is not enough. Bonus tip: if you could find the time, use moisturizing face masks at least once a week.
- Treatment for your Hair
Here is a quick course to hair care: shampoo is for cleaning, conditioner is for moisturizing. Both helps to keep your tresses healthy, but adding moisture to your hair will make it vibrant. Get a hair treatment cream from the store, or make your own. Hot oil treatments can be made at home: take about a spoonful or two of coconut oil, heat it for a few seconds on the stove, massage it into your hair and scalp, then cover it with a towel or shower cap. Rinse it thoroughly after about 15 minutes, and you will get a well-moisturized hair. Bonus tip: add some fragrance by adding a few drops of vanilla or other essential oils to the treatment.
- Body Lotion for your Skin
Body care products are readily available in stores, so you should have no excuse to have a body lotion at all times. Choose a body lotion that feels light on the skin to keep you feeling fresh even on hot days. Like the face cream, the body lotion should also provide protection from UV rays. This means that the lotion should at least have an SPF 30 rating. Apply it on your skin after every shower, and throughout the day if necessary. Bonus tip: use an empty container (like the small jar for your eye cream), fill it with your lotion, and use it as a body lotion/hand cream throughout the day.
Aside from the tips above, keeping a happy outlook in life will make you avoid looking dull and dry. Remember to always moisturize and you will see that you will radiate beauty even more.
