With beauty an ongoing obsession in our society, it seems there are a growing number of options available to improve physical appearance to feel more attractive and desirable. There are beauty creams that promise to make skin smooth, even-toned and wrinkle free. There are cosmetic procedures that promise perpetual youth.
Another beauty concern among women is the shape of their face. A round or square shape is considered less than desirable, as it tends to make the face look heavy and featureless, while a V shaped face makes you appear thinner, angular and more feminine. There are plastic surgery procedures, some which may include chin implants, to create the V shape, as well as less invasive ultrasound procedures that remove fat from strategic locations to create the desired shape.
If you are a bit apprehensive to try such drastic measures, but still want to increase your rating on beauty meter, here are some simple tips to try:
Highlight your assets
If you have great hair, wear it down. If you have sensual lips, a light color and gloss will help make them stand out. If you have beautiful eyes, use make-up to bring them out so that they become more prominent. Eyes are often a focal point on a face, as people are encouraged to make eye contact during conversation, so highlighting them in some way
Creative use of make-up can also overshadows your less-desirable features so they don’t stand out. Beautifully done eyes, for example, may take the focus off an imperfect nose.
Don’t overdo it
Make-up should be subtle, meant to enhance your features, not make you look like a clown. Don’t go too dramatic with the mascara or too heavy on the lipstick. Use colors that complement your skin tone. This will make you look more natural, not like you’re getting ready to do a sideshow.
Eating healthy, vitamin-rich food will help keep your skin clear and beautiful. Vitamins contain anti-oxidants, which fight free radicals and help prevent environmental toxins from damaging your skin. Drinking plenty of water also helps your body flush out impurities for clean, glowing skin.
Sunscreen keeps the sun’s harmful rays from damaging and prematurely aging your skin. If your daily moisturizer doesn’t contain sunscreen, invest in one. It will keep your face young and wrinkle-free.
Get at least seven hours of sleep at night. Sleep restores your whole body and helps your stay beautiful.
