When you think of beauty, do you just see it as something that makes your commute take much longer? If so, then you have a very narrow view of the subject. Beauty is so much more than that and it can be personalized so that it works with your own schedule. Read on to find out how.

You should use the product Vaseline to treat your eyebrows overnight. This will nourish your hair and lead to shiny, healthy-looking brows. Avoid getting Vaseline anywhere else on your face because it can cause unwanted acne breakouts.
When you file your nails, make sure you don’t file in only one direction. This can put stress on your nails and cause them to weaken, become thin and break easily.
Avoid licking your lips. When you constantly lick your lips, rather than become moist, they actually dry out. Try carrying a lip balm or gloss in your pocket or purse, and put it on anytime you feel like doing some licking. You will soon find your lips in beautiful condition.

To open up your pores and have any blemishes removed, steaming is a wonderful option. Put your face over a bowl of steaming hot water with a dry towel placed on you head. Do this as long as you can being careful not to burn yourself. When you have had enough splash your face with cold water to close the pores and make your skin more firm.
Don’t use conditioner every day if your hair in on the fine side. Conditioning a couple times a week is sufficient when you have fine hair. Instead of making your hair healthier, too much conditioner can weigh it down. Try to put a limit on your conditioner use if you desire hair that is shiny and bouncy.
When painting your nails, always use a good base coat. Not only does a base coat allow polish to better adhere to your nails, but it prevents your nails from becoming discolored, which is common when using darker colors. For maximum staying power, look for adhesive base coats, which dry to a somewhat tacky finish.

A great way to make small eyes appear to look much bigger is to steer clear of dark shades of eye shadow. Begin by using a nude base as a foundation, and then use a shadow that is one or two shades darker than the foundation in the crease. After blend the color up towards the brow by using your finger.
There is help for dark bags under the eyes. Massage your eyes with lotion from the outside, then work your way inward. This will also help the blood flow to prevent any lymphatic issues, too.
Used coffee grounds are a great way to exfoliate for your hands. Once cooled, put the coffee grounds in a plastic bag, and keep them in the refrigerator. Rub about a teaspoon of grounds a couple of times a week, then rinse, and apply hand cream as usual.

If you are worried about looking like a raccoon after applying your eyeliner, then there are ways to prevent that.
