Been dreaming of a radiant body all your life? Well, if you’re a celebrity your personal stylists can definitely give you what you want. But if you’re just a plain Jane like everybody else, who says you can’t do it too? Yourself. All you need are some techniques on how to apply this and that. Want to give it a go? The following ideas may help.
Exfoliate: Yes, exfoliating is easy to do and you’ll get flawless results if you know how to do it correctly. One surefire hit among celebrities is sugar scrubs. They are mild enough for any skin type but pack a punch when cleaning your pores. You can easily make your own concoction by combining half a cup of olive oil into a cup of sugar. Apply it on wet skin and massage using circular motions.
Moisturize: Another way to make your skin soft and smooth is to use heavy creams. For best results, apply it after a steamy shower. Don’t worry if you applied it thickly, your skin will just absorb the excess while giving your skin a shiny finish.
Quick Tanning: Here’s a great tip when using self-tanners. After you apply it use a hair dryer to dry it. You won’t see the real color until it’s completely dry. This method quickly sets the tanner to your skin and you’ll be able to give certain areas more products if it’s not dark enough. This method also avoids your color from streaking.
Shiny, Shimmering, Splendid: Body shimmer may feel like your usual lotion but you must know how to use it properly. Too much shimmer is no good. You’d want a natural glow, not teeny-bopper sparkle.
Let’s Face It: When applying highlighter to your face, less is more. Start with a light foundation, and then powder your T-zone and sides of the nose lightly. Apply highlighter or bronzer over high parts of your face like the brow bones, cheekbones and over the Cupid’s bow of your lips.
Tip: If your arms are darker than your chest or face, even out your skin using a good tinted body bronzer.
There’s a huge difference between a natural glow and glitzy skin. So choosing the perfect product is vital. It should be light and glitter-free. You must also know how to use it properly. You don’t want to come off looking like a Christmas tree, now do you?
