12 Ways to Be a Natural Beauty
1.Be a natural beauty
You don’t need harsh chemicals—or tons of time—to get shiny, healthy hair and smoother skin. Just steal these gentle, back-to-basics moves to start looking your best.
2.For a radiant complexion slice a few grapes in half and rub the cut sides over clean skin. The fruit acids are natural exfoliators, explains Regine Berthelot, head aesthetician at the Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa at The Plaza in New York City.
3.Wake up tired, puffy eyes with a chilled eye cream (store yours in the fridge). Apply it from the outer corners of your eyes toward your nose.This helps drain excess fluid in the area,says Annet King, director of global education at Dermalogica.
4.Stay protected by applying a moisturizer with black tea extract before sunscreen; studies show the ingredient decreases the effect of UV radiation on skin and may help prevent sunburns. We like Juara Sweet Black Tea & Rice Facial Moisturizer.
5.To firm your jaw, neck, and throat, yoga expert and instructor Annelise Hagen suggests doing this â€œKiss the Ceilingâ€ move every day: slowly tilt your head back, pucker up, and try to kiss the ceiling; repeat 4 times.
6.Just put some olive oil on a cotton pad and gently massage the oil onto your face to get rid of the makeup and dirt. Don’t: Forget that exfoliation is indispensable. At least once or twice a week, exfoliate your skin to remove the layers of dead skin, sure to leave you with a more healthy glow and brighter skin.
7.Take turmeric powder and mix lemon juice in it. Make a paste and apply it on your skin. Do not take too much turmeric or else you will end up with a yellow face instead of glowing skin. Let the mask dry, and then, wash off thoroughly with cold water.
8.Use warm water and a mild anti-bacterial soap to clean your brushes, laying flat to dry to avoid any warping that can happen. 47. Don’t over-wash your face. Though clean skin leads to clear skin, washing too vigorously or too often can irritate skin and do more harm than good.
9.Before you go to bed, make sure your skin is nice and clean. Wash off any dirt, which might be invisible, and use a gentle cleanser (or a more aggressive one if you have a fair skin and need results faster) on your face. Your skin will ‘repair’ itself overnight, and does that best when clean.
10.Eat a healthy diet. Healthy proteins and nutritious fruits and vegetables go a long way toward making skin glow. Add these elements to your diet to see quick results:
Omega 3 fatty acids. These are found in fish and walnuts, and are especially beneficial to your skin.
Vitamin C. This will help existing pimples heal faster, so eating a few servings of citrus fruits and spinach will help.
Fiber-rich foods. Fresh vegetables, nuts, and unprocessed fruit helps keep a fine balance and to be regular, not sluggish, in the gastrointestinal area. You may look and feel tired and sickly (headache and abdominal complaints), if you do not have regularity of elimination/movements once or more every day.
11.Eat less sugar and salt. Try to consume less than 45g of sugar on a daily basis, and cut down on salty foods. Eating too much salt can make your face look bloated.
12.Take vitamins. If you’re worried you aren’t getting enough of necessary vitamins and minerals, try taking a multivitamin. Vitamins intended for pregnant women are especially beneficial to the skin.
