Nowadays, the majority of us are sticklers for our appearance. We want to look our best at all times. After all, we aren’t just in the spotlight when we head out to social events anymore. We risk being snapped in the workplace, street, or even heading to the local corner shop if we happen to bump into someone we know, and we don’t want unflattering pics splashed all over social media for everyone to see! However, we don’t necessarily want to have to go all out with the makeup every day just in case.
A good way to look presentable at all times with as much ease as possible is to take care of three things in particular – our hair, skin, and nails. These are some of our most noticeable attributes and keeping them in tip-top condition can give us a flawless look with an “I woke up like this” vibe. So, here’s everything you need to know to get started!
The key to keeping your hair in good condition is to keep things as natural as possible. Lay off the heated styling products. No matter how much heat protection spray you use, you’re going to damage your hair to some extent, and if you style your hair with heated products on a regular basis, you’ll quickly end up with dull, split, and lifeless locks. Instead, embrace your hair in its natural form. While individuals with naturally oily hair may need to wash their hair on a daily basis, others should refrain, as this strips natural oils from your roots. You should use a high-quality conditioner each time you do wash your hair, and a deep conditioning treatment on a weekly basis. When possible, let your hair dry naturally.
To take care of your skin you need to do just one thing: establish a thorough skincare routine. This should compose of daily routines and weekly routines. Your daily routine should see you use a high-quality face wash, toner, and moisturiser each morning and evening, remembering to effectively take off any makeup from the day before going to bed. Your weekly routine can include more specialist products, such as a dead sea mud mask, which will give your skin a deep cleanse.
If you have the bad habit of biting your nails, you need to stop immediately. There are plenty of specialist varnishes out there that taste particularly bad and that can help you to kick the habit sooner rather than later. Quitting will give your nails a chance to grow healthily and provide you with a clean slate to start from. You should manicure your own nails or get them manicured around once every two weeks. This process will involve filing your nails into shape, pushing and clipping the cuticles, and applying polish if desired. If you find that your nails chip and break as they are growing, consider a professional gel polish. This will give them a lot more strength and the opportunity to lengthen.
Sure, this may all seem like a lot of effort. But once you get into a routine, each step will come naturally. What’s more? You’ll be rewarded for your efforts by looking picture perfect at all times!
