5 Simple Tips to Enhance Your Natural Beauty
Natural beauty is all the rage these days, and people are trying more and more to tone down the makeup and give out some glowing skin from within. However, we’re not all blessed with perfect, blemish-free even skin, and we need some help along the way. Here are some simple tricks that will help you shine from the inside out.
Water is the absolute most important thing when talking about good skin. Dehydrated skin is dry and can even crack, or start producing insane amounts of oil to hydrate itself, leaving you with oily skin and breakouts. Drinking enough water daily is the best way to ensure your skin will become soft, smooth and even throughout. You shouldn’t worry about sweating: sweat is a natural way for your body to cool off and to cleanse out the pores, just make sure you’re drinking enough water to replace everything that you’ve lost.
You’ve heard before that beauty comes from the inside, but even without the metaphorical, beauty does still depend on the things we put in our body and how healthy we are. Eating highly processed foods high in fat will make your skin break out and be uneven, while foods rich in antioxidants and vitamins will help balance it out and make it smooth. Sometimes doctors will recommend changing your diet to help combat conditions like acne or uneven redness on the face.
Use proper products
We have made washing and taking care of our face a staple part of our nighttime and morning routines, so using the right products is imperative to make sure our skin is looking good. If you’re not sure what you should be using, consult your dermatologist, especially if you need to choose something specific like acne skin care. If you have a condition like that, choosing the right products and following a regime set up by your doctor is imperative if you want your skin to clear up and go back to its regular state. Even if you’re just using products to maintain a smooth complexion, you should still use gentle, organic products that will feed your skin and work with it instead of damaging it.
We’ve all heard that exfoliation is good: it gets rid of dead skin cells, allows products to sink in better and generally make our complexion better. However, the thing they don’t tell you is that doing it more than two times per week can be damaging to your skin, as removing layers that aren’t ready to be taken off can leave skin that isn’t ready to protect you completely exposed. Use a very gentle scrub or something like a konjac sponge to gently remove the top layer of skin when needed.
Lighten up with makeup
Don’t just wear less makeup, wear lighter products. There’s a big difference in using liquid foundation and powdered one. Heavy products are much more likely to block your pores and block your skin from breathing during the day. If you do want coverage, try products that feed your skin at the same time, like BB creams. Also, try to go easy on brow makeup and let your natural brows come back and apply oil on your lashes rather than mascara to let them naturally grow thicker and longer.
You don’t have to go out bare-faced tomorrow if you don’t feel that you are ready. Many women have spent so long putting on makeup every day that going out without it seems like a daunting task. However, once you start to come off it and accept your natural beauty, you will start to accept extra sleep as your beauty routine.
