When it comes to beauty, there are many tips out there, and they seem to be ever-evolving. One minute we’re all putting activated charcoal on our teeth, and the next we’re coating our hair in honey and coconut oil. Before you’ve even put the latest thing on your face, somebody else has logged into Instagram, in a rush to share the next big beauty secret. It can be tiring, and following these things can be all-consuming. Yet there are some timeless hacks that just don’t grow old, and we’ve listed them below. Enjoy!
Focus on eyes or lips, not both
This tip is especially important if you’re a woman in a rush, but the rule generally applies whether you have the time in your morning routine to spend on your makeup or not. Having bright red lips and combining it with a smoky eye could easily make you look like Ronald McDonald, and that isn’t the look we’re going for here, so decide whether to make your eyes, or lips, the main feature of your face and tailor your look to this. This doesn’t mean that you can’t go for both, but calm down the color of your lips if you’re going all-out on your eyes for a timeless look.
There are healthcare professionals out there who have been studying our skin, and how it can retain its youthfulness, for a long time. In the modern age, many are quick to go head-first into invasive forms of surgery to make themselves more beautiful, but there are non-surgical cosmetic dermatology treatment options out there if you’re not looking to make such a big commitment. This includes facials and chemical peels, and they will bring back the feel of youthfulness without the scary surgical implications.
Remove your makeup before you sleep
This one is also an oldie, but undoubtedly a goodie. Sleeping with your makeup on is bad no matter what your skin type is, and it can cause acne as your skin will be unable to breathe underneath your makeup. Leaving your mascara on can cause eye infections, so don’t be careless with eye makeup, either. Though we all have days when we just can’t be bothered to remove it (after one too many cocktails, for example), it is important to stay on top of this if you want to have fresh and clear skin, and no acne or eye infections.
So, there are many beauty hacks out there, but there are timeless classics that simply do not grow old. When it comes to makeup, make sure that you focus on either your eyes or your lips, as you don’t want your face to have too many focal points, to the point where it is simply too much. You can also look into dermatology treatments, and follow that timeless rule: remove your makeup before you catch those Zzzs! Sometimes, new trends just can’t beat the old ones, so try the classics, and see your skin at its best!
