How To Look Beautiful Without Make-Up
Make-up holds the power to enhance and even transform the way you look. However, it’s not a requisite to look ‘pretty’. We’re no way against women and men who don’t prefer to step out of their houses bare-faced, but many a time these cosmetics are loaded with harmful chemicals that could affect your skin if used every day, over a period of time. Once in a while, it’s good to let your skin breathe.
Here are some tips that will help you look like a million dollars without using cosmetics:
1. Have a skincare routine
Understand your skin type and find a skincare routine that suits you. The CTM routine that is involves cleansing, toning, and moisturisng are essential for healthy skin. Find products that suit your skin or best consult a dermatologist. Additionally, ensure that your skincare products are natural, organic, and devoid of harsh chemicals that could harm the skin.
Follow the skincare twice a day- in the morning and at night. You would see a drastic improvement in your skin.
2. Make sunscreen a must
The Sun’s harmful rays not only result in tanning, but are also the primary cause of premature ageing of the skin. By using sunscreen every time you step out of your house, you could prevent dark spots, hyper-pigmentation, and premature ageing. By following this simple step you can ensure you look beautiful for years to come.
3. Eat right
No matter what you use on your skin, if you don’t feed it the right things, it won’t behave well. Yes, what you eat shows not only your waistline, but also your face. In order to achieve glowing skin, one must take a healthy balanced diet. Add fruits and vegetables to your daily diet, since they are rich in vitamins that add luminosity to the skin. Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and good fats are also a must-have. Additionally, it’s extremely important to make sure that the food you are consuming is fresh and organic, as processed foods and foods laden with pesticides do the body and the skin more harm than good. It causes health complications and hormonal imbalance that can steal away the natural beauty of your face.
4. Drink plenty of water
We all know that 70% of our body is made of water. Adequate water intake is important to make sure all body’s systems are functioning properly. Having at least 2 litres of water every day is important to make sure your body is flushing out the toxins that could cause your skin to look dull, uneven, and lacklustre.
To ensure your body stays hydrated throughout the day, keep sipping on water at short intervals. If you are someone who can’t have a lot of water, you can sip on herbal teas. Also, you can munch on cucumbers, as they are 70% water and of course, amazing in taste.
5. Don’t forget your beauty sleep
Have you ever noticed that you are crankier when sleep deprived? Well, the same goes for your skin. It’s not in the best of its mood when it doesn’t get its dose of beauty sleep. Like body repairs itself while you sleep, so does your skin. Your skin repairs old cells and produces new ones while you sleep. 6-8 hours of quality sleep is vital for that. Don’t let anything come between you and your beauty sleep, and very soon you won’t have any dark circles or dull spots to mask under layers of concealer.
6. Sweat it out
If you think exercising only aids in bodybuilding and weight loss, think again! Apart from ensuring that your body remains in shape, exercise has numerous benefits to offer. It can make you look prettier! Don’t believe us? Well, here is a list of 7 beauty benefits of exercise, backed by science.
Lastly, remember ‘beauty’ is subjective. There can be no set criteria for what qualifies as beautiful. Don’t rely on anyone for validation. Just treat yourself like you’re the most precious creation ever, and you’ll look like that.
