Does the beauty game feel like spinning a roulette wheel where the house always wins?
Do you feel like you’re being dealt the joker of the pack when you look in the mirror?
Does an endless slew of gambling/beauty analogies fill you with the urge to improve your cosmetic routine?
Then this is the article for you!
Despite thousands of beauty recommendations plastered all over the internet, the most expensive products aren’t a sure-fire bet. If your skin isn’t compatible, then you might as well be rubbing chip fat oil on your skin.
That’s why we’ve put together this list of wondrous beauty remedies to make your regime an ace in the hole.
As those winter months drag on, looking after your skin is vital – unless you want to look as craggy as Mickey Rourke visiting the cliffs of Dover.
While standard high street moisturisers can be effective enough, we’d recommend Proactiv for a moisturiser and skin cleanser that’s almost guaranteed to work.
Essentially a three-step process, it’ll give your face a radiant glow that’ll neutralise acne and keep it fully hydrated.
The hair of the gods
If you’ve got a dodgy barnet, waking up to see you forlorn locks is about as appealing as a trip to the cliffs of Dover with Mickey Rourke. But it might not be the fault of your stylist. Chances are, those noxious high street shampoos aren’t taming the frizz in your hair.
Have a look online for all-natural, sodium free shampoo that won’t strip your locks of their strength. Once you’re finished, don’t douse your hair in product every day. With clean natural follicles, you’ll find that sheen will last for longer.
Here’s another wintertime downside – your lips will dry up quicker than an arid desert, and finding the solution can be a nightmare.
Yet again, the best tips are the most natural. Drink water regularly to keep your lips fully hydrated, try not to lick them (this ruins their protective barrier) and invest in a few exfoliators and balms to keep them tip-top.
But for all-round beauty, lips and all, the simplest tip is to maintain a healthy, well-balanced diet. While it might not turn you into a supermodel, it will give you a radiant glow in a way that endless helpings of Domino’s pizzas won’t.
