Embracing Our Natural Beauty
These days huge numbers of us can't envision our existence without cosmetics. Today's beauty regimes may sound bizarre and even alarming to some, but most women see them as a crucial component of their existence. In the exploitation of our natural need to stay young forever and the constant bombardment of advertisements and media promotion of far-fetched excellence benchmarks, more women are finding it hard to navigate through the endless products and their claims. But to be beautiful without cosmetics? Is it even conceivable?!
According to the latest market research from Lucintel, the global beauty industry will reach around $265 billion by 2017. The beauty industry is banking on you believing that you need more and more to be beautiful but that's not true.
In this article, I don't recommend that you totally give up all your favorite products and all your beauty rituals but instead I'm asking you to explore the idea that you don't need harsh chemicals, layers of makeup, or even hours and hours to make you look and feel beautiful. Appreciating and allowing your natural beauty to shine will decrease your dependency on expensive products and services and it will also make you feel more confident - and being confident will ensure success in all areas of your life.
Feel Gorgeous (even without makeup)
Yes, the initial step to natural, cosmetics-free magnificence is associated with your internal impression of yourself – your mental self-image.
On the off chance that a young lady views herself as excellent and can acknowledge herself absolutely and unequivocally, then the entire world will feel the same about her. Yes, it's that straightforward!
Be that as it may, on the off chance that you don't feel good or certain about yourself with no cosmetics on, begin the process towards natural beauty on a step by step basis. For example, if you need makeup when you go to the gym (trust me, I know a few), try giving your face a break and maybe use just a tinted sunscreen and some mascara.
Your skin is super important
Sunscreen is the most important thing you can do for your skin. Sunlight consists of ultraviolet (UV) rays, as well as related rays such as UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVA rays are present throughout the day and are the most important cause of premature aging of the skin. UVB rays are most intense from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and are most responsible for sunburn and skin cancer development. So DO NOT FORGET YOUR SUNSCREEN!!!!
Numerous skin issues are associated with the over-the-top utilization of cosmetics. Skin tone gets to be uneven due to the response of your body when using certain kinds of harsh cleansers, foundations and concealers. If you've stopped using thick irritating products, or at least take a break for awhile, you'll see that your skin tone will enhance and there will be no need to use that thick cosmetics veil any more. In the event that skin issues continue, find an expert dermatologist; it's ideal to treat the issue straight away, rather than put it on hold, which could exacerbate the problem.
Facials are amazing for skin and there are some DIY facials you can make that are great or you can go to LUSH which has some all-natural, amazing facials that can specifically tackle your unique problems.
Here is one of our most loved healthy skin tips: sprinkle your face with frosty water in the morning and at night for around 10 seconds. This tones your skin normally and in the morning, wakes you up.
Loving your natural eyebrows
Eyebrows are the frame of the face. One of the first beauty rituals we ever learned was to tweeze our eyebrows. Unfortunately, there isn't a handbook on how much is too much to take off and I have to admit I was guilty of taking off WAY too much growing up. In an effort to look beautiful I was making myself look worse and I had no idea. Given the extent to which we can adjust our face to the world's magnificence norms, it is possible for us overlook how beautiful and novel we look naturally.
My sister, Debbie Dexter, owns an all natural eyebrow studio in Los Angeles, CA. For years she had been telling me to stop touching my eyebrows since they were as thin as a pencil line. She sent me the BROWCHILD NATURAL BROW BOOSTER and told me to stop plucking my eyebrows. Browchild Booster is an all natural organic blend of seed oils and plant extracts, based on an ancient formula for hair regrowth and health. After two months, the results were amazing. I wasn't even sure that I could grow the hair back in some parts because of years of constant over plucking but Browchild Booster was rich in oils that heal follicles. Now I have beautiful, perfectly natural eyebrows and I barely ever need to do any maintenance. If you are like me, I highly recommend purchasing this product. It can be found at
In the event that your eyebrows are too light or spotty and you regularly draw them with a pencil, Debbie at Brows recommends applying a powder with a "spoolie." This enhances your natural eyebrow and people won't even know that you have anything on. Brows has an eyebrow kit that is very affordable and lasts for a long time. The powders are specifically formulated to contain no mineral oil and the Brows vitamin B5 gel is great at setting the eyebrow for a delightful and appealing look.
Fix yourself from the inside out
Great sustenance is vital for the magnificence of our skin, as well as for the general soundness of our body.
We are what we eat, so eating a plethora of organic veggies and fruits as well as the recommended 8-12 eight ounce glasses of water a day can do wonders for our skin and health.
Eating healthy fats like olive oils, nuts and avocados is great, but stay away from processed foods and refined sugars.
Here is an extremely straightforward tip on the best way to make your lips kissable and delicate: tenderly rub your lips each night (or each other night) with your toothbrush for two or three minutes (or utilize an "organic sugar + honey" scrub), then wash and apply a chapstick on your lips. Also, if your lips are constantly dry you may not be drinking enough water so fix yourself from the inside-out and drink up.
Smile and all the world will smile at you
Smiling is not only contagious, but it can help you to feel and look beautiful.
As Audrey Hepburn once said, "The prettiest young lady is the happiest one!" Smile each time you look in the mirror, grin to individuals you see in the city and, by and large, let smiling be your most loved beauty regime. Smile enough and you will notice the entire world grinning back at you!
Cherish yourself. Acknowledge yourself completely and totally. Love the way you look with or without cosmetics, since you are really one of a kind and wonderful!
That Hair on your Head
Taking care of your hair doesn't seem complicated but when we add in all the heating, pulling, cutting, bleaching and dying, it's obvious that our hair goes through a lot.
A good, knowledgeable hair dresser is very important. If your hair dresser doesn't know what they are doing, you could run the risk of causing damage, possibly permanent damage, to your hair follicles.
I used to wear clip-on extensions and bleach my roots so that I had bright platinum blond hair. When I moved to Florida from Arizona 5 years ago I met Holly, my now go-to hair dresser, and my hair was in dire straights. The constant bleaching of the roots made my hair break off and it wouldn't grow past my shoulders. The clip on extensions had left three sets of bald spots at the base of my hairline where the extensions would clip on to. Needless to say....it was bad. Holly did a partial highlight to my roots and instructed me to put coconut oil on my hair every night before bed. She also did a hair trim every other month. Now I have long, strong, blond, beautiful hair and the bald spots are completely gone. Every time I see Holly we talk about the amazing transformation that my hair has undergone. For years and years I had no idea why my hair was such a disaster but an expert's help and my willingness to commit to a coconut oil hair treatment everyday truly paid off.
Makeup can be a lot of fun and it's always fun to play around with our looks but you don't need a ton of it to look beautiful. Anyone who tells you otherwise doesn't truly love you for you or have your best interests at heart.
