Keep your skin cells turning over with exfoliation.

Gently brush your lips with a soft toothbrush. This will help you remove dead skin cells from your lips and make them soft. You should then apply Vaseline or another type of lip balm to moisturize your lips and keep them soft. You can do this every day or every other day.
Your hair color should influence which cosmetic colors look the best on you. For example, if you are a brunette, you can use a dark mahogany eyeshadow as a multitasking tool. In a pinch, it can be used to fill in sparse eyebrows, line your upper lash line, and even cover gray roots on your hairline.
When using heated hair appliances, like a straightening iron or curling tongs, make sure you use a shampoo, conditioner and styling spray that contains heat protectant. Daily use of these tools can severely damage your hair. Heat-activated products can provide your hair with extra moisture, and help to reverse the damage caused by high temperatures.
Use a deep conditioner at least once a week for extra soft and healthy hair. Pick one day of the week to take a bath and read a magazine or listen to music while the deep conditioner soaks into your hair before rinsing. Many hair product lines include a matching deep conditioner.
Make your skin more beautiful by eating fruit. If you have a sweet tooth, and satiate it with sugar, you can quickly see it on your skin. You can feed your sweet tooth, and your skin, by eating sweet fruit in place of anything sugary. When you do this, your skin won’t be the only beneficiary.
Always remove makeup before going to bed. If you sleep with your makeup on, you increase the likelihood you will get acne and blackheads. Makeup can trap dirt and oil on your face. Clean and tone your face every night. Don’t forget to add moisturizer when you are finished cleaning.
Tone down a lipstick that is too bold or bright. A great way to make an overly pigmented shade easier on the eyes is to put some on the back of your hand, dab it with foundation, mix, and apply to lips. Your new shade should now be a better match for your tone.
Use Vaseline on the outer edges of your eyes to make a shield. This will act as a waterproof barrier and will keep your makeup on around your eyes. This is especially good to use if you find your eyes are watery because of wind or any other factor.
Once you have found a haircolor you like, be sure to buy an extra box or two of it to keep at home. That way, you will never be out of the color you like if they happen to run out of it at the local drugstore or beauty center.
A proven solution to dead skin buildup is to use a pumice stone in the shower. The skin is much softer when it absorbs moisture from the shower so it will come off easier. Do not use a razor to remove dead skin, this causes more skin to grow back in the areas which it was removed.
For soft feet, apply lotion or Vaseline and wrap in cling wrap before going to bed. You should then put socks on your feet. You should do this at least once a week for the softest feet. This will prepare even the driest feet for summer and wearing sandals.
