We all want to look our best because when we look our best we also feel our best, and that helps us have the confidence to interact with the world and the people in our lives in the very best way. The good news is there are plenty of simple ways you can make sure you look and feel your best in 2023. Just keep reading to find out what they are.

Curl your hair in the gym 

Many people spend a considerable amount of time in the mornings curling their hair with curling irons, only for all their hard work to be lost as soon as they hit the gym. The good news is that there is a way to work out to your fullest and leave the gym with some killer waves. 

All you have to do is to add some texture or sea salt spray to your hair, and then brush it up into a high bun. The heat you generate during your workout will work to wave your hair and the texture spray will help provide some tension for the curls to grip onto. 

Moisturise in the shower

If you are one of those people that find moisturizing daily a bit of a chore, then there are some ways you can maintain soft and healthy skin that are a little easier. One of these ways is to moisturize in the shower, you can even get some specially formulated moisturizers that are designed to be used when your skin is wet. Just apply them after you have washed with your hands or a toweling mit, and then dry as normal. 

Another option is to use a spray moisturizer like the one available from the skincare brand Aveno. These are particularly useful for getting areas like your middle back which would otherwise be difficult to reach alone.

Deal with spots overnight 

The beauty world is full of products with miracle claims, and results that are barely noticeable. However, now and then a product comes along that reality ‘does what it says on the tin’. One such product is 'spot spots' or spot patches which are small circles that you place over a blemish designed to pull out the pus that is trapped inside.

These patches take around 12 hours to work, so it's best to use them overnight. Another advantage of using them is that they form a protective layer over the blemish preventing you from touching them and adding more bacteria to the problem. 

Try botox 

It used to be that only the richest and most famous could afford non-surgical beauty interventions like botox, but I'm happy to say that this is no longer the case. Indeed, the availability of effective treatments for botox for a range of skin and beauty complaints is much broader now. 

Indeed, botox therapies can help with a whole range of issues from smoothing out laughter lines and vows feet, to dealing with excessive sweating. You can even get botox for jowls now! A process that can help improve the look of the jawline by fighting the impact of the muscles that draw it down, contouring it, and making it more lifted. 

Do not over exfoliate 

Don't get me wrong exfoliation is great for the skin, as it sloughs off dead skin cells and reveals newer, healthier ones below. However, it is a process that needs to be used in moderation if you want to keep the skin on your body and face as healthy as possible. This is because too much exfoliation can be very abrasive on the skin, and prevent it from properly healing in between sessions. To that end, limiting exfoliations to once a week is normally the right approach. 

Make doing your nails super easy 

If you love nothing more than to sport a brand-new nail color every few days, you will want to make the application and removal process as easy as possible. For the application, this means choosing a polish that doesn't need a base coat, and that offers even color in one or two coats. 

For nail varnish removal, the best option is to choose a product like the one Nail Inc offer which is a jar of remover with a sponge inside. Then all you do is insert your finger into the jar, twist and they come out clean and ready for a new color to be applied. There is even a version that has a sponge in the lid which makes removing toenail varnish quick and easy too. 

ALWAYS wash your brushes 

Your brushes touch your face over and over and again, and that means if you don’t wash them regularly all sorts of grease, dirt, and bacteria will also find their way onto your face. Of course, you’ll already know that this makes the likelihood of spots, blemishes, and even infections much higher, and it can interfere with the quality of your skin. 

With that in mind, regularly washing your brushes is essential. You can do this manually with a specially devised make-up brush shampoo, or you can even get a machine that will do it for you. Remember that you will need to wash, rinse, and dry your brushes properly before using them again. Oh, and if you are short on time, then use a brush cleaning spray and allow it to dry. 

Watch the use-by dates on your makeup 

Last of all, to look your best in 2023 make sure you always check the use-by duration on your makeup. You will usually find these on the back label of a makeup product displayed inside a picture of an open container. The number you find there relates to how long you should continue to use a product once it's been opened, so if your foundation has a pot with 6M in then you can use it up to 6 months from when you first open it and it will still be safe. Of course, once the time displayed on the label is up, it's best to throw away your product and buy new ones, as they could be more damaging to your skin.
