How to Walk In High Heels

Being able to walk in high heels has many advantages – it can make you look taller, make your legs look longer, and can overall make you look sexier. All in all, being able to walk in high heels well can add to your self-confidence.

The ability to walk in high heels effortlessly is a skill that can be learned. Aside from practicing to actually walk in five-inch stilettos, there are tips you can keep in mind while learning how to walk in high heels.

First of all, you have to take your time in learning how to walk in these shoes. Don’t rush things. You should understand that mastering walking in high heels takes time. Otherwise, if you try to speed things up before you’re ready, you risk getting injuries and painful feet.

One of the differences in walking with high heels compared to walking in flat shoes is that you have to take smaller steps or strides in high heels. Don’t try to lengthen your stride, or you will look awkward.

If this is your very first time to use high heels, it’s best to start small and work your way from there. Don’t go trying to walk in five-inch heels right away. Try two inches first or even wedge shoes for you (and your feet and legs) to get accustomed to the feeling. You can move up to taller heels once you feel comfortable walking in not-so-tall ones.

Of course, nothing beats practice. Use your high heeled shoe at home. Walk slowly and carefully at first. One of the most important things to remember when walking in high heels is that your walk has to appear natural. The best way to walk while in high heels is to let the heel of your foot land on the ground first before smoothly transferring your weight to your toes. When practicing, make sure you try to walk on different types of surfaces, that is: carpeted floors, tiled floors, etc. This is for your feet to get used to how it feels when you actually use high heels outside the house.

Maintain a straight posture. Yes, using high heels can give you a sexier stance – but if and only if you know how to handle it well. Additionally, maintaining a straight posture while walking in heels make you look more confident.

Knowing how to walk in high heels properly won’t only boost your confidence, it will also ensure that you won’t get injured as you stride proudly in them.

Remedies for Dry Skin

Remedies for Dry Skin

No matter how high the quality and how expensive your make up is, it would still be difficult to look good when you have dry skin. Moreover, having dry skin isn’t only unpleasant to see, but it is itchy and unhealthy as well.

Dry skin can be a result of many things, from cold wintery months to an underlying negative health condition.

While you can opt for commercial moisturisers sold at the local store, these moisturisers can be quite expensive. Luckily, there are various ways you can remedy and soothe your dry skin at home.

When you have dry skin, the goal is to moisturise it; and there is no better way to moisturise your skin than using oil. If you are looking for a truly affordable means to make your skin supple and smooth, you can use your household Olive oil. Olive oil can serve as a truly effective moisturiser. It also has anti inflammatory ingredients that relieve reddening skin.

Avoiding long, hot baths can also help prevent having dry skin. While hot baths can feel relaxing, it can thoroughly dry your skin. Use lukewarm water for your baths instead.

Applying milk to your skin can also soothe dry skin. Milk can effectively get rid of the irritating itch that comes with dry skin.

When you use moisturisers, or even Olive oil as mentioned above, do it at the right time. Moisturisers and lotions were designed to lock in your skin’s moisture. So, the best time to apply them is right after you’ve taken a bath – while you’re skin is still damp from the shower.

The use of strong antibacterial soaps or beauty soaps rich in strong chemicals is a no-no when you have dry skin. Make sure that you use extremely mild soap to avoid aggravating your skin’s dryness.

Try the overnight cure: Soak in a lukewarm bath to the point where your fingers and toes start to wrinkle, then lightly pat your body dry. Afterwards, apply oil onto your entire body while your skin’s damp and then put on your pyjamas and go to bed. You’ll wake up all supple and properly moisturised.

Shaving when you have dry skin can also cause more irritation to your skin because doing so does not only eliminate unwanted hairs; shaving also strips your skin of natural oils. However, if shaving is necessary, just make sure to do it right after showering and don’t forget to use shaving creams/gels.

Having dry skin is no laughing matter; use these tips to soothe your dry skin.
