Clean up. Practicing good hygiene gives you a clean canvas for looking pretty and appealing every day. Try putting these steps into your routine:
Shower at least once a day. You don't have to wash your hair once a day (more on that later), but you should clean your body that often. Already had your daily shower, but you got sweaty working out/walking home/going to your job? Shower again.
Wash your hair at least every other day. How often you wash your hair depends on your hair type. If it tends to be coarse and dry, you can probably get away with washing every other day (and it will actually look better than it would if you washed every day). If it's thin and silky, though, you might want to stick to washing every day.
Brush, floss and use mouthwash. Do all three twice a day, and you'll have a clean and appealing mouth.
Deodorize. Put a deodorant (or combination deodorant-antiperspirant) under your armpits as soon as you get up in the morning, and reapply as necessary. If you still struggle with sweating, look for an extra-strength or clinical-level deodorant.
Take care of your nails. Treat yourself to a mini mani-pedi at least once a week when you get out of the shower. Clean under all 20 fingernails and toenails, and trim them down. For extra fun, throw on a coat of nail polish.
Take care of your skin. If your skin is glowing and clear, you won't need much makeup to look stunning — which is handy on days when you're in a hurry.
Cleanse. Use a cleanser that's appropriate for your skin type twice a day.
Tone (optional). If you tend to have oily skin, you can use a toner to remove excess oil after washing. Start out only using it at night, and ramp up to twice a day if you need more help.
Moisturize. Apply lotion to your skin twice a day, before putting on makeup. If you tend to have oily skin, choose something light or gel-based; if you're dry, you'll need a heavier cream.
Steer clear of acne. You can use treatments containing salicylic acid...
