									Easy And Breezy Beauty Tips For A Fresh Look




While we all appreciate the amazing feeling that comes with looking and feeling our best, not everyone is
willing to put in the effort to achieve it. Fortunately, maintaining a polished and radiant appearance is
easier than you might think. Including a few simple steps in your daily routine goes a long way in creating a
fresh face.




A facial massage stimulates your circulation and creates a fresh-faced look. You needn't spend your money on a
professional facial or spa treatment, however; a self-massage produces comparable results. Apply an oil-free
moisturizer to your face, then gently massage it into your skin with circular motions. This brings out your
natural coloring.




Few things are more off-putting than brittle, dirty fingernails and toenails. Splurge on a manicure and
pedicure or go for a trim, but above all ensure that your nails are clean and buffed at the very least. You
don't always have to wear polish, but at least remove it if it becomes chipped.




Whether you plan to get a spray tan or use self-tanner at home, you should take the proper precautions
beforehand to get the most from it. Prepare your skin by shaving your legs (and arms, if desired), and
exfoliate beforehand. This creates a smooth surface that will absorb the color evenly and help you to avoid a
streaky or uneven tan.




For a summer skin treat, store your eye creams, serums and gels in the refrigerator. When you pat them onto
your skin, you will immediately feel a delicious cooling sensation. The lower temperature also helps to
preserve the integrity of the ingredients, extending the shelf life of the product. The refrigerator is also
the perfect place to store facial and body mists, but only if you remember to keep the lid tightly screwed on
each jar, vial and bottle. Otherwise, you risk contamination or compromising the effectiveness of certain
ingredients.




Unless your skin is very oily, you should apply moisturizer to your face before you apply powder or
foundation. This step is especially useful for those with dry or damaged skin, and also during the colder
winter months. The added moisture will eliminate unsightly flakes and prime your skin for even application.




Dry, cracked or chapped lips are unattractive and can even be painful if untreated. Gently scrubbing your lips
with a soft-bristled toothbrush removes dead skin and creates a smooth, plump look. Top with a thick lip balm
or choose a lip color that contains sunscreen; this protects your lips and locks in moisture.




If you are a fan of lip color, always remember to use a square of tissue to blot your lipstick. This ensures
that your lips have just enough gloss, lipstick or stain; too much color may end up around your mouth area or
on your teeth--not a flattering look!




Looking and feeling gorgeous doesn't require the latest creams, potions and rare ingredients, nor does it
require the skill of a cosmetologist. Focusing on small, simple fixes can work wonders for your face, hands
and body. Whether you have five minutes or five hours, incorporating one or more of these steps into your
beauty routine is bound to produce noticeable results.
