Today’s post is written by an external author; they give some super useful tips that will really help to boost your confidence if you’re feeling in a bit of a rut lately. I’m definitely going to be picking up couple of these tips so let me know if you find them useful too!
Beauty tips can sometimes be pretty extreme. From chemical peels and bee sting face masks, to that ‘leech face mask’ fad (trust us, you do not want to read about this) there are so many beauty ideas that, well, are a little lacking when it comes to subtlety. You can really improve how you look and feel in yourself by doing the little things sometimes, and you don’t always have to take things to the extreme (unless you want to, of course). We’ve put some simple tips together for those looking for subtle beauty ideas, that won’t take up a lot of time or money!
1. Look into gradual tanning
Gradual tanning is one of those beauty tips that can really give you a little lift when you need it. Using a gradual tanning body lotion instead of your normal one can give you a lovely glow, and it doesn’t make you look like you’ve took a fortnight long trip to the Bahamas overnight (which is still a great look, we’d say). It also means that you can get your tan up to a level that is good for you, without going headfirst into things. If you’re interested in gradual tanning then look into the different lotions out there, and you’ll be glad that you did when you have a subtle little boost to make you feel glowing and great!
2. Get an invisible brace
There are few people out there who would profess that they don’t want straight teeth. However, having a brace when you’re over the age of around 18 is something that most people just don’t want to do, even though you may feel a little uncomfortable with your smile. The good news is that you can still get straight teeth, by having an invisible brace instead. Braces like Invisalign are great if you want a more discreet alternative to normal braces, and you’ll still get that perfect smile. This is a great subtle beauty tip, and it will serve you well for the rest of your life when you’re grinning with pride as a result. Where do we sign up?
3. Make your own face masks
Making your own facemasks is a great idea if you want to have clear skin, without the harmful chemicals that are sometimes in store-bought cosmetics. Whilst many shops offer organic alternatives, it’s actually pretty easy to make your own with ingredients like bananas, oats and honey, so look into the natural products that can make your face feel smooth and refreshed. You can make the most of the items that you already have in your kitchen, too, so it won’t cost you a lot of money to make them (if it costs you anything at all). Pre-warning: they will smell delicious, so try to avoid the temptation to eat them!
So, if you’re looking for subtle beauty ideas to give you a little bit of a boost – without costing too much cash or taking up too much time – try out these simple things. From gradual tanning and invisible braces, to making your own face masks, there are so many ideas out there, so see what you can do!
