If you wish to take care of your armpits as much as you take care of the rest of your skin, you may want to consider using all-natural deodorants instead of the more traditional chemical-based variety most people use. It won’t keep you from sweating, but by caring for your underarm skin in a gentle matter it may reduce underarm odor. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
Let’s face it; we all have something that we could do without when we stare at our reflections in the mirror. We can’t help comparing ourselves to the airbrushed, glowing images of perfection that populate billboards and commercials everywhere we look. The trouble with self-image is that it doesn’t adapt to time very well. Thus, when we look in the mirror we expect to see the pretty 19 year old we’d like to remember ourselves as rather than the older, wiser and equally beautiful but slightly more shelf worn version of you. It’s a perfectly natural phenomenon, and while we all want to look gorgeous whatever our ages; often our lifestyles and the harsh realities of the ultra-hectic 21st century aren’t always conducive to looking our best.
Natural beauty is something we all strive for in life. It’s all well and good putting tonnes of makeup on to make ourselves feel confident and pretty, but what happens when we take it off at the end of the day? As much as makeup can hide a multitude of sins, it is your skin which can really show your natural features in the best way. Looking after our skin is the most important part of any beauty routine, and here are some of the healthy habits you can take up in your life to get healthier, flawless skin.
What is sexy? Ask most people to define sexy, and stretch marks are not likely to make the list. Yet, stretch marks may just be the ultimate in sexy, topping the list over long legs, a flat stomach or a killer “come hither” gaze.
The problem is that over the years sexy has become equated with perfection, and we, as a society, have lost sight of what it is to be sexy. The perfect blemish-free bodies that we see in advertisements and on television are but one interpretation of the word – an interpretation that is driven by a desire to sell the product. The spokesmodels featured in commercials deliver a very clear message: “Purchase our product, and you can have a perfect body like ours.” Whether the commercial is selling hair color, cosmetics or the latest miracle cream, the goal is the same: to leave women feeling unsatisfied with their bodies, so that they will run out to purchase more products.
When it comes to beauty, there are a lot of different factors at play and a lot of different things that you can do in order to look your best at all times. However, there’s one thing that is often right at the root of things that also often seems to get ignored all too often: your skin. The truth is that your skin is often the most important thing in terms of the way that you look and a lot of people don’t really take care of it the way that they should. With that in mind, here are a few incredibly simple things that you can do right now to start giving your skin just a little bit more love.
