If you like running out of the house looking perfect with just a little mascara and lip gloss, it takes effort…lots of what I call “behind the scenes effort.”
Get your brows shaped by a professional
Your eyebrows frame your face, so get them waxed or threaded by an expert who will tailor them to your face shape. Plucking daily is time consuming and often leads to little mishaps which can lead to an untidy look or an overplucked arch. Perfect brows allow you to wear little or no eye makeup.
Tint your brows or lashes
Rather than fussing with mascara or eyebrow pencils each every day, get your lashes and brows tinted by a professional once every month. Tinting your brows and lashes will save you time each morning, provide a polished and natural look, and will prevent unruly makeup smudging.
Get facials regularly
Not wearing foundation is not easy, but you can go without it if your skin looks healthy. Makeup and bacteria clog your pores daily so your skin needs an occasional deep clean and exfoliation. Deep pore facials or microdermabrasions gently cleanse, exfoliate, and rejuvenate your skin. Treatments like these will give you a healthy and natural glow so you can stop the primer, foundation, and primer routine
Maintain a healthy hair-washing schedule
Broken and dry hair looks old. It is also difficult to style. So, for that “just out of bed” hair you need extra time for hair care. Use serums or hair masques to moisturize your hair and to prevent frizziness. On days that you skip a wash, use a dry shampoo to prevent an oily look. Regular trimmings and coloring the greys will also keep your tresses polished. Taking biotin supplements will improve the strength of your hair, while fish oil supplements will encourage hair growth
Wear sunblock to prevent brown spots
Sun damaged skin is old, leathery skin. Sunblock should be a part of your daily routine. The only way to prevent freckles, sunspots, and skin discoloration is by protecting yourself from the sun. A broad-spectrum sunblock with SPF 40 or more with UVA and UVB protection will save your skin in 10 years. Prevent excessive sun damage by also wearing wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and tinting your car windows.
