Try a night-time application of Vaseline for your feet. The Vaseline will soften and hydrate the skin on your feet to give you that new-pedicure feeling. Vaseline is common in most homes, and you can do this treatment with your daily beauty ritual. To avoid staining your sheets, put socks on right after applying Vaseline.
Make sure that you shave a minimum of 24 hours before you apply a fake tan. Shaving and waxing are both fine, but in either case, you need to wait a day to get the most out of your tanning product. Doing so will help the quality of your tan.
When you file your nails, make sure you don’t file in only one direction. This can put stress on your nails and cause them to weaken, become thin and break easily.
Make lips appear bigger by applying shimmering white shadow above the bow at the center of the top lip. A little highlight here makes your upper lip look larger.
Make your shampoo and conditioner last longer. If you are using an expensive shampoo or conditioner that is thick, you can stretch out the amount of use you get out of it by watering it down. Be careful not to add too much water because this can ruin it.
Making food choices that are nutritious translates into healthy skin. It also benefits the health of you hair and nails. When you do this, your beauty is influenced by what is on the inside, not only by what is on the outside. If you strive for a nutritious daily diet, it will show in all aspects of your physical exterior. Your meals should include lots of whole grains, zinc, iron and proteins for healthy hair, nails and skin.
For beautiful nails, put top coat on top of your nail polish every time. Topcoat will not only keep your nails looking shiny, it will extend the length of time between polishing. Avoid substituting clear nail polish for topcoat as it is not the same product, and will not provide the same benefit.
If you have the money, you may want to get another set of cosmetics that you normally use, like foundation, lipstick or lotion. You should have these in handy places like a desk drawer at your office so the other can be at home. That way, you’ll always have the makeup you need, no matter where you are.
Always apply a heat protectant spray to your hair before using a curling iron, flat iron or hair dryer. Heat can damage your hair, leaving it brittle, dry and full of split ends. Just like their name implies, heat protectant sprays coat your hair to protect it from the heat. This allows it to stay smooth, sleek and shiny no matter how you choose to style your hair.

Massage it well into your stomach, buttocks and thighs for improved skin strength and to keep those nasty stretch marks away!
