Wake Up Looking Gorgeous
It’s what you do the night before that counts. • USE CUTICLE OIL. To prevent hangnails from forming, apply cuticle oil on your fingers and toes at night. • SKIP COFFEE, TEA AND ALCOHOL. These have a diuretic effect, which can cause dehydration and make your skin feel dry in the morning. • DRY YOUR HAIR BEFORE BED. Your hair is weak when it’s damp, so when you toss and turn in bed, the strands may break. • MOISTURISE NEGLECTED AREAS. Aside from your face, don’t forget your underarms, neck, nape, decollete, hands and feet before bedtime.
Q “I wear glasses. What’s the easiest way to look done
– Xie Huimin, 33, human resource consultant A: Glasses cast a shadow over your eyes, so you’ll want to brighten things up to look fresh and awake. Choose warm, neutral eyeshadows with a shimmery finish, and line your eyes in black or dark brown. Keep your eyebrows nicely groomed as they stand out, arching over the spectacle rims. Don’t forget to draw attention to your lips with a bold, bright shade.
