The anti-aging industry has seen a significant amount of growth in the last few years. According to a report on Globe News Wire, this industry is expected to reach a global worth of more than £156 billion by the end of 2021.
Eyes are the window to our souls but fine lines and wrinkles around this area can detract from ones overall appearance.
Holistic is a word thаt іѕ thrоwn around іn the media ѕо оftеn thеѕе dауѕ thаt оnе hаѕ tо bе cautious tо аvоіd gеttіng duреd by cheap gіmmісkѕ.
From the “full face using only highlighters” challenge, to the numerous ads promising to make you look like a glowing goddess, it’s clear that strobing is a trend that isn’t going anywhere. There’s something so deliciously inspiring about dabbing highlighter on your face, it’s this little step that instantly boosts your confidence and makes you want to admire yourself in the mirror. And when the sun hits your face? Unf, girl. Blinding radiance! Now, we all know how to get the perfect strobe with the help of the right product, but did you know you can also get it naturally? That sexy supermodel skin is entirely possible to accomplish, and we’re here to tell you how.
A glowing complexion is a healthy complexion, and there’s really no amount of highlighter that will help you if you let bad habits and processed food ruin your face. Avoid sugar if you’re prone to breakouts, and eat veggies such as tomatoes, which contain lycopene and may lower acne-promoting hormones. Leafy green veggies, salmon, boiled eggs and blueberries will make your skin look great, and if you want a really healthy boost, add turmeric spice to your food. Here’s a recipe for a turmeric tea elixir that will transform you from the inside out.
If we don’t exfoliate our skin becomes textured, uneven and loses its lustre pretty quickly. So, grab a good scrub and slough away that dirt and you’ll be amazed at the velvety softness of your face. After you exfoliate, apply a face mask to nourish the skin.
Always Wear SPF
This is really important, because most of the signs of aging actually come from sun damage that gathers up over the years. All those wrinkles and brown spots appear if you don’t apply your sunscreen daily, so grab something that has an SPF of 30, and use it every single day, regardless of the season.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Consistent, everyday skincare routine is the key to success. Find a moisturiser that suits your skin type, and consider using a serum as well, especially if you want something with intense anti-aging properties. For very dry skin, hydrating misting sprays can offer instant relief, and you can carry them in your bag and spritz them whenever you feel like you need an extra dose of moisture. This also gives you such a lovely dewy glow that looks natural.
Don’t Neglect Your Neck And Chest
So many people forget to include their neck and chest in their routine. The skin there tends to show signs of aging really fast if we don’t pay attention, so simply extend everything you do with your face, onto your neck and chest area.
Strip Off Your Makeup Before Bed
No faster way to breakouts and dull, ugly skin than constantly forgetting to take your makeup off. Cleansing is important, so use some micellar water to take your makeup off, regardless of how minimal it was. This will ensure your skin keeps it natural, healthy shine.
Get Enough Sleep
Dark circles and puffy eyes hardly scream glowing goddess, so please, try to get enough sleep. The stress that comes from not getting your proper rest reflects very poorly on your skin, and you don’t want to wake up looking like a zombie every day. If you get your 7-8 hours of rest, you’ll have a beautiful brightness to your fact that will draw people in.
Feeling good in our own skin is a truly priceless feeling. There’s nothing like knowing that our skin is so soft and beautiful, that we can just leave the house with barely any makeup on and still look absolutely gorgeous. Remember to drink plenty of water to give it a hydration boost, follow these tips, and get your glow on.

Regardless of the current makeup trends, lipstick will always complete the whole look perfectly. Therefore, it’s no wonder that choosing the best shade of lipstick is such an important task for many ladies. However, it’s not all about choosing your favorite colour or formula. Unfortunately, some lipstick shades can make your teeth appear more yellow. On the other hand, there are also lipstick shades that will make your teeth appear whiter. With that in mind, you may want to pay attention to the following shades when choosing your next lipstick.
The times they are a changing, but signature red lip will always be the queen among the lipstick colours. There’s nothing that can make your whole look as elegant and edgy as a vibrant red lip. However, you have to be very careful when choosing your perfect shade. If you want your teeth to appear whiter, stay clear from orange- and yellow-based red lipsticks. Instead, always opt for a red shade with blue undertones, since they will cancel out the yellow tones on your teeth.
Pinks are also trendy among all age groups. Moreover, pink feels a lot safer compared to red, which is why so many ladies opt for this gentle shade more than something bold and vibrant. However, precisely because there are so many possible variations with pink shades, you have to be very picky. Basically, avoid warm and coral shades of pink and stick to the cool-toned ones.
Elegant Berry Tones
If you like your pinks but also want to spice up your makeup look a little bit, slightly darker pink lipstick shades with berry tones are a perfect choice. Again, berry colours are cool-toned, with an obvious blue undertone that will make your smile brighter as well. However, purplish hues, in this case, may have a whitening effect that you want if you choose more moisturising lipstick formulas. In case of matte lipsticks, you may want to try them first, in order to see how they pair against your teeth when they dry completely.
Dark lipstick trend is definitely one of the favorite makeup looks for many makeup lovers throughout the world. However, unless your teeth are already perfectly white, you still have to be very careful when choosing your dark lip color. In general, brown shades, no matter how gorgeous and unique, still bring out the warmth (any staining) in your teeth as well. Therefore, it would be wise to stick with dark purples and reds with a strong blue undertone. Luckily, there are plenty of these types of shades in the market!
As one of the most popular and iconic lip shades, nude lipstick colours are bound to find their way to your makeup bag. After all, nude lips are perfect for every day and match beautifully well with darker, smokier eye looks. However, make sure that you avoid “concealer lips” at all costs. Your nude lipstick should have some cool pink tones if you want your teeth to appear whiter. Ditch yellow and beige tones unless you’re happy with how your teeth look. Moreover, glossy lipstick finishes are a much better choice than dry, matte formulas in this case.
What To Pay Attention To
Hopefully, the above-mentioned tips will help you choose your perfect lipstick shades for the most beautiful smile. Still, it’s worth mentioning that frosty shimmers and neons can also make your teeth look more yellow, so, if this is something that concerns you, steer clear from them as well. If you’re planning a teeth correction in the near future, you may want to check this Invisalign vs braces review but, in regards to wearing lipstick and rocking a gorgeous smile, nothing can beat the invisible Invisalign. Of course, don’t forget to take good care of your lips. If you apply a lipstick over chapped lips, it won’t be your teeth that are ruining the whole makeup look.
In the end, the most important thing is to feel confident and comfortable with the makeup you’re wearing. Be yourself and rock the looks that you find flattering – and take into account the mentioned advice when choosing your lipsticks.
