My mother's beauty tips

Hi there! It's me Svetlana.
My mom is a huge natural beauty enthusiast. She is a real pro when it comes to achieving  great looking skin and body with virtually no money! Here are some of her beauty tips.

1. Face towel should be soft. Never rub the face harshly with a towel but rather touch it lightly to absorb excess water.

2. A little bit of moisture left on the face after washing is good because when you apply a moisturizer you can use much smaller amounts to distribute it all over your face and neck. It also would help to prevent skin dryness.

3. Always apply skin products on the face and neck in upward motions avoiding pulling and stretching the skin.

4. For instant refreshing effect, try washing face and neck alternating warm and cold water. Finish with a cold splash. This will result in increased blood circulation to the face and neck area and give you a great morning glow. Avoid extremes of water temperature to prevent a temperature “shock” to the skin.

5. Before applying a facial mask, use a warm compress (or a steam sauna) to the face and neck for 3-5 minutes to increase blood circulation to the skin. This will make the mask itself more effective.

6. Never apply a facial mask around the delicate eye area. This may result in increase of wrinkles.

7. After applying a facial mask, recline comfortably with the legs resting on a pillow, better in a dark room. Close your eyes, completely relax and avoid talking and moving around for 15-20 minutes. Remove the mask with a warm and then cool water. Finish with a splash of lemon juice diluted in cool water.

8. For instant glow: put several ice cubes in a wash cloth and gently rub the face, neck and décolleté area until skin becomes pink. Don’t overdo to avoid temperature “shock” to the skin! Regular ice rubs are also great for keeping woman’s breasts in the best natural shape.

See you soon!
