How to Wash Your Face Like Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn is fashion goals all day every day but she is also a beauty muse. I love staring at her gorgeous face. She was one hell of a beauty. Audrey Hepburn beauty/skincare tips are always a reading pleasure. I love trying out her skincare tips. They always work so well for me. Recently, I came across some of her face wash tips and I have been washing my face just like that. The steps are quite easy to follow and very straightforward. You may find that you have been unconsciously washing your face like this the whole time and not realise our very own Audrey Hepburn recommended these same steps.

How to Wash Your Face Like Audrey Hepburn
Immerse the soap bar in hot water

The first step is to immerse your soap bar in hot water that is comfortable to touch. Then rub the soap bar gently over the face. After rubbing the soap bar all over the face, dip the soap bar again into the hot water and make a rich lather in your hands.

Massage lather over the face

The next step is to massage lather over the face.

Splash the face 20 times with the hot water

Once the lather has been massaged all over the face, splash the face 20 times with the hot water. Remember this water must be comfortable to touch, so not too hot. It is best to mix some hot water in a container so you are sure you have the right temperature.

Splash the face 10 times hot running water

This is the tricky bit, splashing the face 10 times with hot running water is the next step. I do this step quickly so the water does not get too hot.

Pat dry

The final step is patting the face dry with a very soft towel. Don’t be tempted to rub as this could your skin do more harm than good.

What is beauty really about?

There are so many articles and books about what beauty is and what makes us beautiful. Sometimes the tips and advice in these sources can be very conflicting, which ends us leaving us even more confused. What is beauty really about? To answer this question, I love John Kenneth Galbraith’s quote – There is certainly no absolute standard of beauty. That precisely is what makes its pursuit so interesting. There is no straight way of achieving beauty and there is no absolute standard of beauty. It is different for everyone, which is why we really should take these words of advice with a pinch of salt and work out which of the tips work for us.

Every woman has her own beauty and I believe every woman is her own version of beautiful. I love the saying – Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We really should remember that when we look at these fancy magazines with models wearing perfect makeup.

Here are 2 ideas of what beauty is really about –

Being happy in yourself

Being happy in yourself is one of the most important beauty tips anyone could ever give. It can be tricky sometimes but being really happy is the most important beauty advice of all. Do whatever makes you happy in yourself.

Accepting your features

Embrace all that makes you you. Accept your features, fall in love with each and every one of them. Get to know them, get to understand how to work with them.

Living is more enjoyable than appearing

There is a lot more to a beautiful face. It pays to have an attractive face and I am not playing it down in anyway. However, I am usually more interested in the person behind the face. There is a lot more to a pretty face. As cliche as it sounds, beauty comes from within, living is way more enjoyable than appearing, so we should remember to live and not focus on just looking the part.

The luxury skincare and makeup products will not make you as attractive as you think if you are ugly on the inside. They may do little or nothing if that is all you are focusing on. It is easy to get obsessed with our looks, but we should remember not to neglect other parts that make us who we are. Which is why we should focus on our inside as much as we focus on our outside. Beauty is only skin deep, but real ugly goes clear to the bone.

 

 

 

Beauty Muse: Yemi Alade

The talented and beautiful Yemi Alade is the Beauty Muse of the month. I have previously featured Yemi Alade as a Style Icon on Fashion and Style Police a couple of years ago. Apart from her stylish taste in fashion, she also has some pretty facial features, which is why she is a Beauty Muse. For those who do not this beauty, Yemi Alade is is a Nigerian Afropop singer and songwriter. Her big break came when she won the Peak Talent Show in 2009. Her hit single a”Johnny” was released in 2014, and her career really took off that the catchy song.

I am a huge fan of Yemi Alade’s music. Her beats are always super catchy and she is also a great dancer. I enjoy watching her music videos, they are always full of amazing moves. This woman is the definition of an African Beauty. Her facial features are stunning and she obviously knows her to care for skin. I have always admired her glowing skin and I am always on the hunt for great skincare products to try. So when I came across an interview with Vogue, where she shared her beauty secrets, I knew I had to blog about it. Here are some skincare products and makeup tips she swears by –

Coconut Oil

Yemi Alade moisturises her face with some coconut oil after cleansing. The fact that she uses coconut oil doesn’t surprise me at all. This amazing product is known for the great skincare benefits. I have a bottle in my bathroom cabinet and I use it on my hair and skin. Coconut Oil is one of those multitasking oils you just need to have.

“Because I am a performance stage artist, and I dance a lot, the most important thing is the primer,” she says. “It keeps everything in place.” After a full-coverage long-wear foundation is applied, Alade uses two different concealers to highlight her lids, then sculpts her eyes with a contour palette, courtesy of the Nigerian beauty brand Zaron Cosmetics. “The main thing that pushed me to learn how to make myself up is because when I travel around the world, I find that Nigeria is very ahead in terms of makeup skills,” she explains. “The Nigerian makeup artists know exactly what they’re doing.”
