Beauty vs. Fragrance – What is your choice?

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

We all want to look beautiful. From when we were small children, we loved to play dress-up in front of the mirror. Many of us must have heard the phrase, “Beauty is only skin deep”, but is it really only skin deep? Everyday you may be applying make up on your face not realizing that it blocks your skin pores. To bring out the real beauty of your facial skin, you must take time each day to cleanse and moisturize your skin. For women especially, wearing perfume helps give us presence and can make us seem more appealing. There are many kinds of perfumes available in today’s market.

When choosing perfume, hair care and skin care products, make sure to select those that fit your personality best. We are all unique and different to one another. So are our skin tone and body fragrance. What suits your friend or even family member may not work well for you. Your individuality comes to life when choosing beauty products. You must find that perfect scent that suits your mind and body. It should work well for all occasions like work and social events. Only use one fragrance at a time. Using several will totally change the scent of the other and have a negative effect. As the saying goes, “too many cooks spoil the broth”.

Choose a fragrance that is subtle and pleasant. You just need to dab or spray a little on various areas of your body. You also need to keep in mind that factors such as skin type, clothing detergent and other fragrant cosmetics will affect the scent of your perfume. Beauty products are available everywhere. More recently many online stores have opened, which makes it all the easier for you to make your purchase. Of course the drawback would be you can’t try the perfume. Make sure you’ve done your research before making a purchase. Often you can find all the products you need online, even at a discount. Many men’s fragrance products are available like cologne, body spray, deodorant, and hair care products. Keep in mind never to rub a fragrance on the skin as this will break down its various compounds. You should not spray fragrance into the hair as many fragrances contain alcohol, they could dry out and damage your hair.

To ensure that your scent remains on you throughout the day, layer the fragrance instead of reapplying over and over again. Layering refers to the use of other body products that contain the same scents like shower gels, body mists, and skin lotions. Many brands offer layering options with just the right scent dosage. Fragrances come in a variety of concentrations, which include oils, perfumes, eau de toilettes, and colognes.

I would like to give you some ideas on how to buy the right fragrance. The first step to locate the right fragrance is to find out what you want from your scent. If you want a strong smell that can hold its fragrance throughout the day, then you should choose oil. Next, never purchase a fragrance without first trying it out. If possible try to obtain free trial samples of the fragrance you are considering and try it out. If you can’t get trial samples, visit the stores that have the scent you want and use a tester. Remember to test the scent in the middle of the day because according to fragrance experts, it is the time of day when the sense of smell is most active.

It is important to know how to wear the fragrance properly. The key here is to never overdo it, particularly when you are using an oil or perfume. Beauty and fragrance go hand in hand and it has become an integral part in the lives of many women today.
