Whether you want to banish blemishes and dimples or improve the condition of your hair, you can follow several easy beauty and skin care tips that don’t require a lot of extra effort, according to “Marie Claire Magazine” and “Cosmopolitan Magazine.” Most basic skin care and beauty tips also don’t require purchasing new products. In some cases, however, you might want to select an anti-aging cream or switch shampoo brands.
Consider Shaving with Conditioner
You might have run out of shaving cream or want to try something different for your hair removal routine, whether you’re shaving your bikini area or your legs. “Cosmopolitan Magazine” recommends that women consider using hair conditioner for shaving; this helps condition the hair and skin while protecting you from those unsightly nicks and cuts.
Use Peels to Exfoliate
Harsh exfoliants include granular substances that can harm sensitive skin, said New York City dermatologist Dr. Virgil Hatcher in an interview with “Marie Claire Magazine.” Skip the traditional exfoliants with those rough grains and choose skin care products, such as L’Oréal Paris Acne Response Intensive Adult Acne Peel Kit instead. Such kits help combat acne without traumatizing your skin, according to “Marie Claire Magazine.”
Don’t Dry Your Face with a Towel
Many towels are rather harsh and should not be used to dry your face, according to “Cosmopolitan Magazine.” Instead, use toilet paper to dab your face dry after showering or your skin care regimen. Selecting a soft brand of toilet paper is probably good for all areas of your body.
Hydrate Your Skin
Oily skin can indeed wrinkle as you age, so all women should hydrate their skin, said New York City dermatologist Dr. Patricia Wexler in an interview with “Marie Claire Magazine.” Wexler Anti-Aging Acne Serum with soy might be a good choice for moms who don’t want to suffer from wrinkles or acne; another “Marie Claire Magazine” recommendation is the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment with aloe.
Combat Unwanted Calluses
You don’t have to buy a new beauty product to soak away those unwanted calluses, according to “Cosmopolitan Magazine.” Old-fashioned Vaseline, applied liberally to your feet and any other rough spots before you go to bed, just might do the trick.
Don’t Forget Those Armpits
You might have rough armpits, and can combat this problem by exfoliating them regularly, according to “Cosmopolitan Magazine.”
