Easy Fixes For Common Beauty Problems

Having a bad hair day? Annoyed at the giant zit on your face? We all have beauty issues from time to time. While some of them are more frustrating than others, they are all annoying to deal with. They also seem to come at the most inconvenient of times.

Just because you are battling a blemish or frizzy hair doesn’t mean you need to cancel your plans. Common beauty problems may be easier to fix than you think. Here are some easy fixes for beauty and hair problems:

Dark under eye circles

Not getting enough sleep? One of the tell tale signs of tiredness and fatigue are dark undereye circles. Under eye circles can be genetic and some are more noticeable than others. There is no real way to get rid of them other than a good night’s rest. However, if that doesn’t seem like it’s in your near future, you can also try to minimize them. A cooling eye gel, such as the Olay Age Defying Classic Eye Gel, will lessen the appearance of dark circles. Follow that up with some concealer and the bags under your eyes will be hardly noticeable.

Oily Hair

Hair can tend to be oily in the warmer months. As the weather starts to warm up and our pores produce more oil, you might feel the need to wash your hair daily. Since daily washing can strip your hair of natural oils, it’s not the best idea. However, if you find it necessary, you can use a lighter, clarifying shampoo made for daily use, such as the Paul Mitchell Protect Daily Shampoo. Instead of shampooing, you can also use a dry shampoo in between washes, like the Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray.

Pimples and zits

Pimples and zits can be the most frustrating skin problem to have, especially since they can last days and are difficult to cover up with makeup. If you have a zit, don’t be tempted to pop it. This will make it worse. Instead, wash your face twice a day and apply a acne cream with benzoyl peroxide, such as the Clearasil Daily Clear 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Vanishing Acne Treatment.

Clogged Pores

Clogged pores can be caused by a number of things, especially your environment. To prevent them, an effective skincare regimen is the key to keeping your skin clean and clear. Be sure to exfoliate with a scrub, like the St. Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Apricot Scrub, to really get rid of dirt and impurities Doing this 2 or 3 times a well will help keep your pores clear. You should also follow up with a gentle alcohol free toner, like the Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner, to get rid of any leftover traces of makeup.
