Top 10 Beauty Tips and Secrets
Let’s be honest, most of us, given the chance, would do pretty much anything to discover the secret to eternal youth. Sadly, that’s not a reality, so we have to come up with other ways of making the most of what we have, and trying to disguise what we don’t want to show. Maybe you’re one of those lucky souls who is happy with their lot, maybe you’re one of the even more blessed beings who has other priorities in life, and doesn’t spend time worrying too much about their appearance. Whatever your thoughts on the beauty industry, and all the beauty tips and secrets they claim to own, it doesn’t hurt to re-evaluate yourself from time to time. Fashions change, beauty tips come and go. Whether it’s your clothes, your hair, your face or body, it’s always good to keep up to date with the latest trends, even if you only adopt the occasional crazy fad here and there.
The world is awash with beauty salons and cosmetic surgery clinics promising the world. Here at Enhance Medical, we are one of the leading UK clinics, with hospitals around the UK. We are a great place to start if you’re considering going down the cosmetic surgery route. If, however, you don’t feel it has quite come to that just yet, what can you do instead? Are there any beauty tips and secrets that you can embrace in the meantime? Keep reading for the top 10 beauty tips and secrets that we think will give you a bit of a boost.
Start from the inside
There’s no escaping the fact that a healthy lifestyle will be reflected throughout the body and on your face. Eating a varied diet, rich in essential oils, vitamins and minerals will help everything to work at its optimum level. Add plenty of water to your daily intake and you will literally be feeding your face with goodness (and the rest of your body too).
You don’t need to overdo the exercise, or become obsessed with steps, to feel the benefits of moving more. When you feel good on the inside, it shows on the outside. Increasing your heart rate and getting the blood flowing is great for the complexion, your metabolism and your mood. This will all be reflected on your face, without a needle in sight!
It’s not always easy to get the required amount of vitamins and minerals from our diet. Sometimes things need a bit of help, in the way of supplements. If you think you’re lacking in some areas there will inevitably be something you can take to redress the balance. Multivitamins, or more specific supplements are easy to take, cheap to buy and readily available, so there’s no need to miss out.
Lotions and potions
However well you’re treating your body from the inside, it’ll always benefit from some additional help in the way of moisturisers and serums. This form of self care will keep you in tip top condition, keeping the moisture in your skin, stopping it from drying out and showing unwanted signs of ageing. Make this part of your daily and nightly routine for 30 days, and see if you notice the difference.
Ditch the bad habits
This doesn’t necessarily fit with the beauty tips and secrets to try, but it’s some good advice nevertheless. Smoking, excessive drinking and too much sun exposure will all work against you in your quest for the best version of you. We don’t want to be the fun police here, but ‘everything in moderation’ doesn’t mean the end of the world! And if it puts the wrinkles off for a few more years then that’s no bad thing.
If you’ve decided that lip fillers are just not for you, don’t make the mistake of thinking that you can’t do anything to boost those beauties. We’re just on the cusp of the latest trend in over lining the lips to achieve the perfect pout. Use a natural coloured lip liner to draw just outside of the lip line, particularly at the middle of the bottom lip and over the Cupid’s bow of the top lip. Then fill in with the colour of your choice. This might take a bit of practice, but the Internet is a good place to start for some video tutorials.
Be careful not to get swept away with the latest eye make up looks if they don’t work for your age group. As we get older our eyes change, with crows feet and wrinkles, loss of elasticity and volume, etc. Tailor your makeup to the stage of life you are in, and you’ll find it produces a much more flattering look.
Our beauty tips and secrets have mostly involved the face so far. However, breast contouring has really taken off lately, with women using eye pencils, bronzers and highlighters to enhance the appearance of the shape and fullness of their breasts. If this isn’t quite hitting the mark anymore and you want a more permanent solution, here at Enhance Medical, our clinics offer breast enlargement surgery at our clinics throughout the UK.
Top up the tan
Unless you’ve severely overdone it with the fake tan in the past, and turned yourself into a satsuma coloured sensation, then fake tan is a great way to brighten your skin tone and fake a healthy glow. Take it one layer at a time and gradually build up to achieve the colour you want.
So when you’ve done all the work from the inside out, and you want to show off your results, why not treat yourself to a few new wardrobe classics? Dress to suit your body and show off your best bits. Or wear what you want, throw caution to the wind and let your inner confidence shine through.
Whatever you do to enhance your appearance, try not to get swept away with every fad and fashion. Pick and choose what works for you, experiment with different products and treatments, and don’t be afraid of change.
