Sometimes when you look in the mirror, you don’t like the image of the person staring back at you. But fear not: help is at hand. There are loads of ways to unlock your beauty. And the best bit? Many take 30 seconds or less.
Rub Banana Peel On Fine Lines
Got fine lines around the eyes you want to shift? Try unpeeling a banana, discarding the fruit and rubbing the inside of the peel over them. The peel contains natural exfoliants and enzymes that give the skin an instant boost – and hopefully your confidence too.
Massage The Nape Of Your Neck
Sometimes your skin on your face can look a little tired and worn out when blood can’t reach it from the rest of the body. It often occurs if you’ve been sitting in the same position all day long, without much movement.
Try massaging the nape of your neck for a few seconds. Usually, it encourages blood to rush to the site and, by extension, your face as well.
You can also massage your face directly, but be sure your hands are clean and soft. The skin that forms your complexion is particularly sensitive and prone to redness.
Put On A Dress
If there’s one thing that can instantly make you feel sexy on the inside, it’s wearing dresses. Not only are they beautiful in their own right, but they also have a habit of complementing your figure in a way that jeans and blouses don’t.
Add A Bit Of Colour To Your Cheeks
If you’re looking a bit grey after a hard day at work, try applying a bit of colour to your cheeks. Grab any lipstick lying around in your purse and get rouging.
Dry Brush Your Body
Dry brushing? What the heck is that? Essentially, it’s what it sounds like. You grab something course, like a dry natural sponge, and then rub it across the surface of your skin. As you do so, you’ll activate your body’s lymphatic system, which helps to clear away toxins and impurities. That’s what you want, right?
Apply Your Rollerball To Your Under-Eye Area
The area under your eyes is prone to puffiness when you get tired. Researchers think this happens when the lymph under the skin doesn’t have sufficient time to drain. The result is under-eye areas that look swollen and, occasionally, a different color from the skin on the rest of your face.
Applying a rollerball to your under-eye areas instantly brightens your complexion and makes you feel more confident. Within a few seconds, you look like you’re freshly rested instead of having just pulled off an all-nighter.
Pop A Kale Pill
Kale contains sulfurous compounds that smell bad but are actually great for skin health. Once your body absorbs the compounds, it signals to cells to behave more youthfully. The result is often a brighter complexion and more energy to boot.
Spritz Yourself With Rose Water
Rose is excellent for the skin too. Try spritzing yourself quickly and allow the plant extract to work its magic.
