Naturalness is the trend for ages now. Many girls spend so much time trying to put their makeup on to look like they aren’t wearing any makeup at all. To ensure this you can follow some beauty rules to help you look great without using any products on your face.
Here are the 15 simple tricks that will make you look naturally flawless without foundation, lipstick, or other cosmetics.
1. Make your eyebrows look perfect
On a face without makeup, the eyebrows become the center of attention without any doubt. Shape your eyebrows for your face shape. You can even tint your eyebrows with dye or henna. If you weren’t born with thick brows, apply a mixture of castor oil and vitamin A to your eyebrows daily. After a few weeks, you will notice the amazing transformation of your eyebrows.
2. Working out to healthy skin
Physical activity is important both for your physical as well as mental health. Do something whatever you desire whether it’s hitting the gym, running, doing yoga, or going swimming. Scientifically, it is proven that exercise benefits your skin and improves your mood. A minimum of three hours of physical activity per week will result in improving your health. It improves your blood circulation, helps to get rid of toxins, increases the amount of oxygen delivered to your skin, provides a boost of endorphins that reduce stress and calm your entire body, including your skin. However, if you’re heading out to the park for a run, never forget to wear sunscreen.
3. Accentuate your eyes
To make your look “wider,” curl your eyelashes with an eyelash curler, and then apply a transparent gel to them. You can even go further and get eyelash extensions.
Get rid of dark circles under your eyes. Start by reconsidering your diet. Dark circles can be the result of a deficiency of iron or B vitamins in your body. Choose eye creams with a whitening effect or the ones with retinol.
4. Whiten your teeth
A bright smile adds more attraction to any image. Therefore, make sure nothing stops you from giving the best smile you have. Use whitening toothpaste, especially after drinking coffee or wine. But remember not to overuse it as such toothpaste can be quite harsh. If your teeth are naturally gray or yellow, get them professionally whitened.
5. Exfoliation is key
Make exfoliation a vital part of your skincare regime. It indeed is the key to radiant skin. Your skin is continuously shedding dead cells from the surface which helps in renewing itself with fresh and healthy cells. An excess of dead cells sitting on the surface of your skin can lead to clogged pores, blackheads, acne, and pimples. When you inculcate exfoliation into your regime, your serums and moisturizers are better absorbed into the skin making them work more efficiently. Opt for gentle scrubs or create your natural scrubs at home. You can use ingredients like gram flour or coffee scrub. Don’t exceed exfoliation to more than twice a week. You will be able to see visible improvement in the health of your skin. It will look fresher and smoother.
6. Don’t forget about your lips
Nutrition, moisturizing, and reasonable exfoliation are not only important for your face but your lips as well. Use lip balms that can sometimes be replaced with olive oil or any other natural oil. Once a week make sure to massage your lips with a soft toothbrush or with your fingertips, you should moisten them and dip them in sugar beforehand.
7. Take care of your hair
Unattended hair color and a haircut that was done a long time ago are not beneficial for your makeup-free face. Choose simple hairstyles and natural colors, as more bright colors would not give a natural appearance. Get your split ends cut regularly. Coconut oil can add shine to your hair. It also helps to fight dandruff, dryness, and other problems. Rinsing your hair with boiled herbal extracts can also make your hair shine.
8. Use sunscreen
Ultraviolet radiation greatly increases the appearance of premature wrinkles and other unpleasant “bonuses” of aging. It can also lead to skin cancer, and people with light skin can be affected the most. Therefore, products with SPF must be used not only when going to the beach but throughout the year.
9. Focus on your skin
Cosmetologists believe that you shouldn’t wash your face more than 2 times a day. And it’s even better to do this only before going to bed. The most important thing is not to rub your skin too much as such procedures can be quite harsh. Making face masks (a white clay mask, for example) once a week is also useful.
10. Get enough sleep
Proper sleep (at least 6-8 hours) is essential for keeping your skin in perfect condition and its good for health. Go to bed by 11 pm because after midnight the body starts to produce one of the main “beauty hormones” named as melatonin. Try to sleep on your back to reduce the appearance of potential premature wrinkles.
11. Reconsider your diet
Studies confirm a direct connection between the condition of your skin and the food you eat. Oily marine fish, vegetable oils, seeds, and nuts are some of the most important foods that should be included in your diet. They are a source of fatty acids, vitamin E, and carotenes which are the main weapons in the fight against free radicals. Dairy products should also be included in your diet as it a key to healthy microflora.
12. Find your color
13. Drink plenty of water
Every system and function in the body relies on and needs water. Carry a bottle of water with you wherever you go and keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. Drinking a minimum of 8 or more glasses of water helps flush out toxins from your body, and hence your skin looks plumper and livelier. It also helps keep wrinkles at bay.
The best way to consume water is to fill up a bottle with cucumbers, lemons, zucchinis, mint leaves, and other such brightly colored veggies and make your detox water to drink on-the-go. If you do it makes sure that it gives you the nutrients as well as the hydration to help your body utilize and hold onto the water more efficiently.
14. Wear well-fitting clothes
15. Deal with those pesky pimples the right way
Breakouts are natural, and everyone has to go through this ordeal some more than others. However, there’s no need to fret. The worst thing you can do to your pimple is trying to get rid of it by popping it. Do not, under any circumstance, touch your pimples or try to squeeze them you are only going to make the situation worse. Instead, opt for methods that will treat the pimples the right way and remove them without leaving a scar. You can use retinol or benzoyl peroxide to get rid of them. Use a face wash with a percentage of salicylic acid, and you can avoid breakouts to a great extent. Patience is key here. You have to wait till they fade away on their own.
