8 ways to look good at every stage of your life

Most people want to look good at every stage of their lives and go to extreme lengths to do so. From applying whisked eggs to make their hair shinier or getting a fish (Garra rufa fish) pedicure – in which the fish eat the dead, flaky skin off your feet – there’s clearly no limit to what people will do to look good. But there are easier options out there. And here are a few helpful tips you can add to your list to help you look good every day and at every stage of your life.

Exfoliate

Ever wondered how some people’s skin looks flawless without makeup? Well, the answer could be exfoliation. Exfoliating your skin helps remove dead cells, impurities and makeup residue and exposes the new, fresh skin under the surface. Many people exfoliate their faces only and neglect the rest of their body, but it’s important to take care of yourself from the tip of your hair to the soles of your feet.

In order to scrub your skin effectively, you should purchase exfoliating gloves to wash your whole body. Just make sure it’s not too rough and it fits your hand properly. If the glove is too rough, it can damage your skin and if it’s too big, it’ll slip off while you’re bathing.

The time of day you choose to exfoliate your skin is important. Most people usually choose the end of the day, but it’s better to do it in the morning. Exfoliating first thing in the morning will remove all the dirt and bacteria and allow your skin to repair itself throughout the day.

Brows

Eyebrows come in all shapes and sizes. some people have full, thick, bushy brows and some have thin ones. Whatever your shape, you should make sure your brows are well maintained. Most people have experienced one or two horror stories regarding their brows over their lifetime. It could the one time you overplucked your brows and they never quite grew back to their natural state or leaving a salon and noticing a significant difference between the brows. Whatever your story is, we all know the importance of well-groomed eyebrows. They frame your eyes, give you a confidence boost and give you a more youthful look. Whether you wax, tweeze or thread your brows, make sure they’re well-groomed in order to give you that clean, polished look.  

Vitamin C

Everyone wants the magical anti-ageing pill that’ll keep them looking young forever. There may not be such a pill that gets immediate results, but taking a Vitamin C supplement will help you keep your youthful appearance. And Vitamin C also has other benefits, it’ll boost your collagen and improve your immune system.

Nails

Chipped nail polish, dirt under the nails and unkempt nails look tacky. If you don’t want to spend tons of money on manicures and pedicures at the salon, you can do it yourself at home. File your nails and keep them even, scrub off any dirt which may be hidden under your nails and apply a coat of nail polish. When you wash the dishes with your painted nails, make sure you wear gloves so the gloss lasts longer.

Body shapers
