Almost everyone wants to be attractive and look good. No sane person rolls out of bed and tries to look bad. Having said that, there are a number of things that can be done to attain, maintain and improve beauty. This article contains great ideas about where to start. A "hot spray" is a great investment if you wish to protect your hair from the harsh heat of hair dryers. All major grocery stores carry this item in their beauty sections. The purpose of the product is to stop split ends occurring in the hair, and will also speed up the drying time. It prevents moisture from escaping and smells great to boot! For the healthiest skin, hair and nails, eat healthy foods. Beauty is built from your nutrition first and foremost. If you strive for a nutritious daily diet, it will show in all aspects of your physical exterior. Consume a variety of whole grains for the health of your skin, nails, and hair. When you first wake up in the morning you should pamper yourself. The best way to start your day off on the right foot is to take the time to brush your hair, wash your face, and brush your teeth. Do not neglect your own needs if you want to stay beautiful. To whiten and brighten your teeth, add a little baking soda to your toothbrush once a week. Just sprinkle a little baking soda in the palm of your hand, dampen your toothbrush and press the bristles into the baking soda, add toothpaste and brush your teeth as usual. Don't do this more than once a week since baking soda can be hard on your tooth enamel if overused. Do you want to draw attention to your eyes? For more volume use a mascara that is waterproof and is formulated to provide length to your lashes. Many mascaras claim to be able to increase the volume and curl of your lashes. However, many of them are too thick. The end effect is anything but feathery and feminine. Instead of using a product that will be adding weight, just use a waterproof lengthening formula. Your lashes will look thicker and have an upward curl to them. If you want to tame your frizzy hair, try a brush which has bristles made from boar hair. Frizzy hair is a common problem. A brush with boar bristles can be your best friend if you want to banish the frizz from your hair as it dries. Brush your hair with it, making sure that the hair dryer is blowing downward. Bump up your hair color. If you have dyed your hair and the results aren't as dramatic as you like you can fix this by adding a box of hair coloring to your shampoo. Lather it into your hair and let it set for 5 minutes, then rinse it out. Use petroleum jelly on a regular basis to help soften your feet and toes. Forget about all the pricy skin softeners on the market; you can rely on inexpensive petroleum jelly to make the skin on your feet softer. Your feet can be smooth and healthy looking if you apply petroleum jelly to the dry balls, heels and soles of your feet on a regular basis. Our culture places great importance on youth and beauty. Unfortunately, when many of us see our reflections in the mirror, we are not happy with how we look. With so much literature and so many options available when it comes to beauty, it is a shame more effort is not put into it. Apply the advice from this article, and you will be looking and feeling more beautiful in no time.
