5 Things That Can Help Improve Your Appearance Instantly
Sometimes, our appearance is not always ready for an impromptu presentation at a work meeting or a luncheon that’s scheduled right after a ten-hour flight. In cases like this, you often have no time to do much else other than quick retouches in the bathroom, or even just cleaning the oil off your face with a wet wipe.
If you suddenly find yourself in this situation, it can be a little embarrassing tolookunprepared for the occasion. To avoid looking tired or wholly unprepared ever again, here are some useful items that deserve a place in your everyday bag:
1. Tooth whitening pen
Have to give an impromptu speech at a meeting or going on a date right after drinking coffee? During occasions where you’re going to spend most of your time talking, people will often be looking at your face, and more specifically, your mouth.Knowing that you have coffee stains or generally yellowish teeth may bring down your confidence and have you unnecessarily feeling insecure in front of other people.
The solution? Bring a tool that can help you make your teeth lighter on the go. An innovative teeth whitening pen can give you an instantly brighter smile in minutes, helping increase your confidence every time you need a boost.
2. A trusty comb
Everyone should have a small, compact comb everywhere they go, not just when you have a bad hair day. You never know when the wind is going to pick up or if you’re going to get caught in a drizzle that ruins the hairstyle you’ve spent half an hour on in the morning. With a trusty comb always in your bag or pocket, you can tame your hair whenever you need to, or simply make your hairstyle look neater when attending a meeting or an event.
However, be sure to clean your comb regularly. Since you travel with it a lot and keep it with other stuff, it’s going to carry a lot more dirt and bacteria than the combs you have at home.
3. Lip and cheek tint
Whenever you’re looking a little pale because you didn’t get to eat breakfast or stayed up too late last night, you may have your co-workers asking you if you’re sick. It’s worse when you’re traveling and end up looking like a zombie in all of your photos.
During instances when you look unhealthily pale, a lip and cheek tint can bring back vibrancy in your face and make you look more awake, alert, and healthy. Keep a tube in your makeup bag for emergency situations (and for times when you don’t have time for proper blush or lipstick), and address the cause of your paleness, be it eating a healthy breakfast when you get to work or squeezing in a nap during your break.
4. Facial mist
When your skin is dehydrated, it can feel dry and itchy. Moreover, your skin is likely to appear dull, your complexion uneven, and your fine lines more noticeable. All in all, not a good way to look when you’re at work, at school, or anywhere else you want to keep your appearance looking good and healthy.
The best way to prevent dry skin is by applying moisturizer on your face and body regularly, ideally after every shower and face cleansing session. It’s also a good idea to keep a travel-sized container of moisturizer in your bag, especially if you’re traveling via plane, when the weather is hot and dry, or when you’re going to be out of the house all day.
Besides moisturizer, you can also use a facial mist to rehydrate your skin on the go. Pick a mist that comes in a travel-sized container, is light enough so that your face doesn’t feel heavy when you apply it, and dries quickly so that you don’t end up with damp-looking skin longer than you have to.
5. A classic black blazer
You didn’t feel like dressing up too much for work this morning, but suddenly you have to meet with an important client and the blouse you’re wearing doesn’t exactly scream professionalism. The solution? Throw a black blazer over it and instantly look like a boss.
Keep a classic blazer at your desk for emergencies like this. Even if your workplace doesn’t require formal attire, having something that can make you look more professional in seconds is great for sudden meetings, be it virtual or in-person.
Few things are worse than getting caught off-guard and showing up at an important meeting or even looking a little unprepared. To never have this problem ever again, these are some of the best things to have with you at all times so that you can get an instant glow-up whenever you need it.
