MakeUp Tips and Skin Care

  • Skin Care: Skin can undergo many changes in teens for instance skin produces more oil which causes acne problem. You should avoid washing your face many times a day and using highly medicated products. These medications over stimulate oil glands to produce more oil. Make sure to wash your face with a light soap twice per day. It will also be good to add some shine-free moisturizer for skin hydration. Make sure to remove makeup before sleeping.

  • Moisturizer: At an early age, a light moisturizer may be called for, but do not use heavy creams made for dry skin. Choose a product that is formulated for light skin care maintenance that does not block your pores. A heavy moisturizer will probably wreak havoc and cause pimples.

  • Pimples and Blemishes: Acne is the #1 skin care concern for teens. Keep your face and hair clean, wash your hands frequently, and keep them away from your face. There are many products available on the market today for acne prevention and cures, and they are much more effective than years ago.

  • Makeup for Teenagers: Most teenage girls begin wearing light makeup around the ages of 12-13 as they become more aware of their appearance. As a teen, your makeup should look natural and enhance your facial features. Don’t overdo it, this will only make you look silly. With a few simple, inexpensive products, you can play up your finest features and look great!

General Makeup Tips:

  • Always use good lighting and a clean mirror.

  • Keep your makeup light in the summer. Heavy foundation will cake and melt off in the summer heat and humidity, leaving you with a streaked look.

  • For proper hygiene, don’t use outdated cosmetics, particularly around the eye area and never share your make-up with anyone.

  • Try matte bronzing powder underneath your cheeks and jawbone to make your face appear slimmer.

  • To make your nose appear smaller, apply bronzing powder carefully down the sides. Add a little shimmer creme or powder down the bridge of your nose.

  • Use cotton swabs to pick up any eye shadow that has fallen on your cheeks or face.

  • Clean your makeup brushes and applicators often to reduce bacteria and oil.

  • If your powder blush or eye shadow breaks up in the compact, use alcohol to press it back together.

  • Adopt a healthy lifestyle: The best beauty secret to glowing skin and lush, shiny hair? A healthy lifestyle! All the beauty creams in the world can’t beat a vitamin-enriched, balanced diet to nourish skin and hair from within. Also, drink lots of water to flush out toxins, and exercise regularly to improve blood circulation and keep you lean and fit. And “beauty sleep” isn’t just a myth—getting a good night’s sleep has a restorative effect on your body (optimum hours for surges in growth hormones and cell regeneration are between 10 PM-3 AM).

  • Vaseline is your best friend: I actually knew this tip as a teen — that’s actually where I learned it. Vaseline is a great product to have on hand for 2 reasons: it’s a great eye makeup remover in a pinch and used with a toothbrush, it’s the best lip exfoliator ever.

  • Use Ice Cubes To Keep Fat, Acne And Wrinkles At Bay: The experts at You Beauty recommend massaging an ice cube over your face until it melts. Do it every night before bed and keep fat cells, acne and wrinkles under control.

  • Use Oil On Your Skin.. Even If It’s Already Oily: This probably sounds crazy, but using an oil-based product to remove makeup or excess dirt from your skin can actually improve your epidermis’ condition. Why? Over-cleaning stimulates the sebum glands, which causes skin to over-produce oil. Using oil-based products will have the opposite effect.
