Do you want to boost your beauty, but don’t want to try any expensive and unnatural procedures? Don’t worry! Looking your best doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg and fill you up with all kinds of toxins and chemicals. Here are a few 100% natural ways to enhance your beauty.
Go au naturel every once in a while
You might not like this tip, but it can truly do wonders for your skin. Every once in a while (once weekly) try ditching makeup and going completely natural. This will give your pores a chance to breathe and recover. If this doesn’t appeal to you, switch to mineral makeup products that are made without any toxic chemicals that can end up in your skin.
While eating clean and nutritious foods promotes health in every way, there are some foods that have an especially beautifying effect. For instance, even though it’s not usually considered to be an essential nutrient, sulfur is vital to many of the body’s processes. Healthy levels of sulfur will keep your skin and hair soft, smooth, and strong. So make sure to eat plenty of eggs, cruciferous veggies and radishes since they are very rich in sulfur (and pretty tasty too). Another mineral that will give you that beautiful and healthy glow is zinc. You can find it in foods like seeds as well as spirulina and mussels.
Hydrate from the inside and outside
You probably heard that you need to stay hydrated for thousands of times, but hydration is just so important that we have to repeat it. If you don’t provide your body with enough fluid, your wrinkles will appear more pronounced, your blemishes more apparent and your body will come to a standstill. So, make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day, every day. Don’t just chug a full bottle in the evening to compensate—you’ll not be able to absorb it all.
You also need to keep your skin properly hydrated on the outside. Luckily, today it’s very easy to find a good moisturiser that fits your skin and lifestyle. For instance, if you’re a huge lover of natural products, you can grab a bottle of Jojoba moisturiser that is 100% natural yet fast absorbing. Some high-quality creams also contain zinc that provides sun protection that will additionally keep your skin young and elastic.
Try skin brushing
In order to end up with glowing, youthful and smooth skin, try skin brushing. A few times a week, give your skin a vigorous stroke with a bristled brush before your jump in the shower. This will boost the circulation of blood and lymph and remove all of those ugly dead skin cells from your body. The routine is 100% natural and brings great results.
Take care of your pearly whites
There’s nothing more beneficial and natural for your teeth than brushing and flossing regularly. By removing food and bacteria buildup, you will ensure clean, strong teeth and fresh breath every day. There are amazing natural oral care products on the market that are organic and truly effective, like Essential Oxygen’s Pristine Protocol 3-step system. It includes a certified organic toothpaste, the #1 selling natural rinse Organic Brushing Rinse, and BR Tooth Polish. Make sure to check them out and grab a few that match your preference.
Sweat it out
If you want to get your blood flowing, it’s best to hit the gym or try jogging. This will not only bring color to your skin and boost endorphins that make you feel good, but also regulate your weight, build muscles and improve your confidence (high self-esteem is always attractive). You can also try yoga or pilates to improve your posture and look confident. If you can’t exercise for health reasons, you can sweat it out in the sauna. Saunas push the body to excrete toxins and remove some additional dead skin cells resulting in healthy and beautiful skin.
See, beauty can be 100% natural! You can look your best without spending all your money and risking your health.
