8 No makeup beauty secrets you should know about
Many women can’t imagine their lives without makeup while on the other hand there are women who never used makeup in their life. Whether you are pro makeup or not, here are some beauty hacks you should know about that will help you stay naturally beautiful and take care of your skin the right way.
Healthy meals = healthy skin
The first step is to alter your eating habits and start eating healthy. Turning to a nutritious diet is the best way to achieve healthy, elastic skin. That means including more fruits and veggies in your meals, food rich in omega-3 fatty acids (seeds, walnuts, flax) and eating regularly.
Keep yourself hydrated
Carry a bottle of water with you all the time to keep yourself hydrated through the day. Drinking a lot of water helps cleansing out your body since it flushes out toxins and makes your skin look plumper and more elastic.
Replace boring bottle of water with cucumber, lemon and ginger detox water.
Exercising is essential
Start exercising because physical activity is essential for the healthy body and healthy skin. You should do whatever suits you, whether it is practicing yoga, swimming, taking karate classes – as long as you get your blood pumping. Working out will improve your blood circulation, help you get the toxins out of your body through sweating and provide a boost of endorphins (trigger a positive feeling in your body) that will help reduce stress.
Read the label
When shopping cosmetics make sure to check the list of ingredients because your skin absorbs 60% of the stuff you put on it. Makes sure you do a research on the harmful ingredients in various cosmetic products and avoid purchasing products that contain parabens, petrochemicals and sulfates because they can irritate your skin or cause an allergic reaction. The best option is to use 100% organic cosmetic products for your skin and body.
Know your skin type
When it comes to your skincare routine, before purchasing cosmetic products you need to know your skin type and choose cosmetics according to it. For example, if your skin is dry, itchy and red it means you will need an intense face moisturizer that relieves dryness and softens your skin. If you have a problem with oily skin, you should exfoliate at least once a week and use moisturize face cream with hyaluronic acid that will balance oily skin.
The exfoliation hack
You should exfoliate your skin at least once a week to remove dead skin cells. You can DIY your own organic exfoliators with granulated sugar or coffee and scrub gently to get smooth skin. If you have a sensitive type, the best option is to make your own recipes that won’t harm your skin.
Strong, long and curly eyelashes
Skip putting on mascara and just curl your eyelashes or put Vaseline to achieve the voluminous no makeup look. Applying almond or coconut oil to your lashes every evening will help them grow longer.
If mascara is an essential part of your beauty routine, make sure to apply oils on your lashes to make them stronger. Also, a great way to keep your lashes curly, long and strong is to opt for a professional eyelash infill treatment and you won’t need or use mascara for 4 weeks!
Take care of your lips
Gently massage your lips every evening for a couple of minutes using a DIY scab such as ‘sugar + honey’ scab, rinse and apply a lip moisturizer. It is a simple way to make your lips soft and healthy looking. Add a bit of lipstick and voila! – a minimal makeup look.
These simple beauty hacks will help you take care of your skin the right way. Include them in your beauty routine to achieve a stunning, natural look that your healthy skin will simply adore.
