You can’t escape the flood of reality shows on television. There seems to be one for anything you can think of. From useless car restorations to housewives brimming with self-entitlement to people subjecting themselves to painful surgeries and needles to look better, there is no shortage of TV for making you feel like you are not doing enough for yourself.
Those makeover shows go the distance. You can only imagine how much you would need to spend if you had to do those things to yourself. There are, however, cheaper ways to give yourself a makeover, and none of them requires painful and expensive surgeries.
Make your skin glow
Many people try to cover fine lines and blemishes with makeup. Makeup makes your skin age more quickly, especially if it gets in the way of your skin’s ‘breathing’. Instead, treat your dry skin in a milk bath. For your face, try a yoghurt mask. For sensitive skin, or a face riddled with acne, use an oatmeal mask. Never forget to moisturise. Whenever you go out, do not neglect the sunscreen. Wear additional protection, like a hat or a sun visor and sunglasses. Carry an umbrella, as well. Do not depend on products; use a gentle and moisturising soap. Eat a balanced diet.
Make it simple
Instead of wearing too much makeup, remember that less is more. Get nail polish from Australia online in colours that suit your skin tone. Same goes for when you colour your hair. If you want to colour your eyebrows, choose a shade that closely matches your hair colour.
Take care of your teeth
Your smile can either improve your beauty or be the part that takes it all away. For most people, it doesn’t take surgery to improve their teeth. Visit your dentist to talk about treatment or dental appliances like Invisalign to correct teeth alignment and to address the imperfections with veneers and whitening.
Work on your diet
Models and celebrities will have you think that the perfect body is something you should go hungry for. You shouldn’t go stick-thin just to be beautiful. Subscribe to a healthy diet, work out and buy clothes that complement your figure. Work on your confidence. It doesn’t matter whether you’re on the heavy side or the thin side; confidence is everything.
You don’t have to spend a fortune or torture yourself just to feel beautiful. Go with the ‘less is more’ routine, take care of your body and work on your confidence. That’s really all you need.
