There is no end to the stuff you can do to enhance your appearance. You can try a new face wash to reduce redness, you can try a new foundation, and you can even make an appointment at the plastic surgeon’s office. These can all be effective ways to enhance your beauty and your confidence, but why not try something a bit more natural first?
Here are five natural beauty tips that will boost your appearance and your confidence. The best part is, they don’t cost a lot of money and they’re easy to add to your routine!
Who knew something as simple as tea has some amazing proven health benefits! Moringa tea, more specifically, can prevent diabetes, aid with digestive health, and it can fight certain types of cancer, but that’s not all. It’s great for your beauty routine too.
According to Nifty Benefits, studies have shown that because this tea is packed with antifungal and antibacterial properties, it’s a great way to fight acne. Because it is high in vitamins A and E, as well as zinc and amino acids, it can boost keratin production, which will prevent further hair damage and promote faster growth at the same time.
You might be busy adding vitamins to your diet. You may even know the health benefits of omega-3 and fish oil, but sulfur and zinc? Surprisingly, you need them in your diet as well!
Sulfur can keep your hair soft and smooth. Including it in your diet is as easy as eating:
When it comes to zinc, choose pumpkin seeds, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, and mussels to make your skin glow.
When we’re in need of a little pick-me-up, we usually head to the store to pick out a new face wash or beauty treatment we can try during our in-home spa night. It can be a lot of fun to buy new products, but why spend so much money when you can get the same effect with homemade beauty treatments for less!
A few ideas include:
Soaking your nails in olive oil to hydrate them
Creating a face mask out of raw honey
Clarifying your hair with an apple cider vinegar rinse
Using olive oil and sea salt to make a body scrub
Deep conditioning your hair with coconut oil
Eliminating dead skin and promoting circulation with dry brushing
Mixing one to two drops of organic chia seed facial oil with rosewater toner in a spray bottle for rehydrating dry skin any time of the day.
It’s important to protect yourself from the sun. That means wearing sunscreen, covering your skin, and staying in the shade. Unfortunately, some people take it a little too far.
We actually need sun exposure to stay healthy! Not only does it provide us with vitamin D, it can add a little color to your skin. That can boost your happiness, which is naturally beautiful, and a little color can reduce acne and make you appear more active.
That doesn’t mean you should be laying out for hours in the harsh sunlight without protection, but it does mean that you shouldn’t be afraid to go outside for 10 or 15 minutes without any sunscreen on.
The sun isn’t your enemy! Get a little sun, just not too much, and your skin and mental health will thank you for it!
This tip is perhaps the easiest one on the list. All you have to do is switch out your pillow case!
As you sleep, you create friction and compression on your face that can leave you with lines in the morning. It can even cause long term skin issues. It isn’t uncommon for people who regularly sleep on their sides and face to develop wrinkles.
One solution is to train yourself to sleep on your back. That has some serious health benefits, but if you aren’t comfortable sleeping on your back, you aren’t doomed to look older than your age.
A soft, silky smooth pillow case can keep you from developing lines and wrinkles. It can also help you sleep. Silk pillow cases tend to be cooler than more traditional fabrics which will make you more comfortable in bed.
Don’t think you have to go to the makeup counter and shell out hundreds of dollars to enhance your hair, skin, and nails. You can boost your confidence and look like the best version of yourself by giving the tips on this list a try.
