Beauty Tricks for black women

Let me share this to you, I found again some tips, and now it's about tricks for black women. Girls really want to stay beautiful and flawless skin, this trick will give you a hint to stay pretty. Most especially those girls who have darker skin.

Hair Tips: Prevent breakage
If you have relaxed hair, moisturizing is key to prevent breakage when new hair grows in. That's why you should “deep condition every two weeks," says Carol's Daughter resident hair expert, Eric Bland. See what else he recommends and get a product suggestion.

Gently cleanse hair
“Kinky hair is naturally dry, easily traps dirt and holds product more than other textures,” says Anthony Dickey, owner of Hair Rules Salon in New York City. As a result, many women reach for a clarifying shampoo, which if used too often, can dry out hair even more. See what you should be using instead.

Set hair perfectly
Does your hair get frizzy no matter how much product you put in it? Well, it could be a simple problem. “One of the most common mistakes women make is that they apply styling product and then fuss with their hair while it dries,” says Dickey. Get his styling tip.

Skin Tips: Avoid hyperpigmentation
Just because your skin already has a darker color to it, doesn’t mean you don’t have to guard it from harmful UV rays. While you might not get freckles, you can get sun damage that shows up as hyperpigmentation. “While fine lines are also a side effect of sun damage, discoloration is most common,” says Dr. Jeanine Downie, MD, Co-author of "Beautiful Skin of Color". Find out her antidote.

Keep dark circles away
Darker skin can also mean darker undereye circles (gasp!), so before you load up on concealer, keep this tip in mind: “Don’t rub your eyes,” says Downie. See what else you can do to prevent dark circles.

Deal with pimples
Pimples are tempting to pop, but whatever you do, restrain yourself. “Picking can leave a dark spot, which can take from six months to a year to fade,” Downie warns. Instead, apply an over-the-counter zit-zapping formula with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. See which pimple-be-gone product to use.

Makeup Tips: Get flawless-looking skin
To give Vanessa Williams, Iman and Jennifer Hudson flawless-looking skin, celebrity makeup artist, Sam Fine, applies cream foundation. See which makeup product to use and how to use it.

Make your cheeks glow
Depending on your skin tone, using a bright or richly-pigmented blush might seem like the only way to get that flushed look, but it's not always the most flattering. See what Nadine Luke, Director of Makeup Artistry for MAC suggests to use instead.

Make your eyes stand out
Fine’s rule of thumb: The deeper the skin tone, the richer the color should be. "Richly pigmented eyeshadows will go on as they appear in the compact, and they'll last longer throughout the day ... or night!" See which eyeshadow to use.
