Being a beauty queen is a lot of work, and spending uncountable hours backstage at pageants, and this week at Miss America 2011, I often wonder how these girls get â€œpageant perfect.â€
Some of the best tips and secrets Iâ€™ve picked up over the years can help you get fabulous skin (in your own home).
Make a regime and stick to it, analyze your skin every few months to ensure that you are getting the results you desire, and to adjust for seasonal climate changes.
Iâ€™m not going to tell you not to do your own extraction, because we all do it.
Immediately after you perform your surgery, apply Neosporin, or another triple anti-biotic cream.
This helps to kill the bacteria, and keep your skin from having bad acne scars in the future.
- Here’s Looking AT You, Beautiful!
One of the first parts of the body to show illness and lack of sleep is the eyes.
If you are running a hectic schedule and donâ€™t have the time to kick back with cucumber slices.
Slice them a bit thinner and they will stick to your eyes as you multi-task.
- Essentials, Extras & a whole lot of Colour!
Keep a makeup kit in your purse.
I know it is one more thing to lug around, but a quick mini-makeover with a fresh coat of mascara and lipstick will do wonders for your face and your attitude.
This kit should have at the very least: nail file, mascara, makeup remover wipes, lipstick, blush, comb, hair brush, and lip gloss.
- Exfoliate & Moisturize
It is very important to exfoliate regularly and keep a good moisturizer on hand and a good lip balm for your lips.
Avoid coffee, energy drinks, and soda.
Drink water (add lime, lemon, and orange slices for flavor) and hydrate the body from within.
- Baz Lurhmann Would Agree….
…Sunscreenâ€¦use it dailyâ€¦or else!
