Three Easy Beauty Tips That Will Transform Your Skin and Nails

If your makeup brushes are an unsighltly shade of brown, and your nails are yellow (no judgements), it”s time to print out this tip sheet and tape it to your bathroom mirror.

Nail Care

Always use a base coat on your nails to prevent a yellow stain from forming after the removal of polish.

To keep them stain-free, mix a little amount of baking soda with a little water and soak your fingernails in it.  You may also soak you nails in lemon juice, since it naturally whitens the nails.

For soft feet, keep a stepping stone foot scrub in the shower. Make sure to scrub both the heel and the ball of the foot to remove dryness.

Facial Care

Frequent use of makeup may cause skin to age prematurely, so it”s important to wash your face twice a day with a cleanser suitable for your skin type. Always use a circular, upward motion while washing, making sure to target three key areas: face, neck and chest.

Makeup Application

Clean your makeup brushes with soap and water on a regular basis (2-3 times a week) to get rid of makeup residue, dirt, oil and even bacteria that form between the bristles. This will prevent your skin from clogged pores and future breakouts.
