There are a lot of great beauty tips out there for women, but many of them are focused on makeup and beauty tools. If you’re looking to be more natural, then do you know what the best beauty tips are? There are actually a lot of them that can make you naturally beautiful in your own skin.
Natural Beauty Tips
Below you will find 10 of the most effective natural beauty tips that can make you feel and look more beautiful than ever, no cosmetics required!
1. Don’t Pop Pimples!
If you pop your pimples then you’re likely to end up with scabs, skin irritation, redness and a scar (if the acne was really bad). Instead, soothe your pimples with hot and cold compresses. Start by doing a hot compress for ten minutes, and then do a cold compress for another 10 minutes. This will get rid of swelling so that your pimple is likely to be minimized dramatically by morning. If you want to double up on your efforts, then dab a little bit of baking soda mixed with water onto the zit before bed. This will dry out the pimple and kill bacteria so it will definitely be less noticeable.
2. Beautiful Hair
Don’t buy expensive hair products that are packed with chemicals just to have nice looking hair. You can make your own hair mask that soothes, shines and builds strength by mixing one banana with one egg. Combine these together, apply it to your hair, leave on and then rinse off after 30 minutes. Not only will this leave your hair smelling great, it will also leave it looking great. Use this after you shampoo your hair and you can probably skip conditioner. If you do need conditioner, then only apply it to the ends so you can avoid greasy roots.
3. Healthy Nails
If you want your nails to look and feel healthier, then all you have to do is reach in your pantry for some olive oil. Soak your fingernails in this for five minutes and then rinse off with warm water. This natural oil will restore strength to your nails and leave them looking great. This is a great alternative to chemical nail strengtheners because it’s safer, natural and affordable. This beauty tip is sure to save you a lot of money throughout the year.
4. DIY Face Masks
Trips to the salon can be expensive and who knows what ingredients are in pre-made face masks. By making your own you can save money and still enjoy glowing skin. There are a lot of different face masks you can use with things you probably have lying around your home. For example, you can make an egg face mask by just whipping up egg whites. You could also use avocado, honey and oats to make a soothing face mask that also exfoliates.
5. Clarify Your Hair and Make it Shine
If you have been trying everything to get rid of buildup caused by hair products such as hairspray, gels and even shampoo/conditioner, then you need apple cider vinegar. This is a great alternative to the chemical clarifying shampoos out there and works just as well, if not better. All you have to do is mix 1/4 of it (make sure it’s organic) with 1 cup of water. Work this into your hair and then rinse out. Use your favorite conditioner after this and your hair will be lighter because the vinegar will have gotten rid of all the residue that has built up over the months or years.
6. Exfoliate Your Skin to Soften it
Soft skin is in, but exfoliating creams can be incredibly expensive. Fortunately, you don’t have to purchase those and can make your own natural skin exfoliator at home. Do this by mixing one part olive oil (or coconut) with 2 parts sugar (or brown sugar). Mix these together with a spoon and then put the scrub into a bottle or jar that you can easily grab while in the shower. Use this while you bathe and it will leave your skin soft and glowing because it gets rid of dead skin.
7. Whiten Your Own Teeth
Skip going to expensive dentist’s offices or using costly whitening gels and whiten your own teeth at home. You can easily do this by brushing with baking soda once per week. The baking soda will naturally lighten your teeth a few shades, especially if you do this on a regular basis. You can also rub it on your teeth with just your finger if you don’t want to use your brush. Take pictures of your teeth to track your progress and you will see a difference.
8. Banish Blackheads
Blackheads can make your skin tone look uneven, but they can also just be bothersome to have around. If you want to get rid of these naturally then you can do so with a warm compress. Just simply put it on your pores and then will open up (you can also use steam from the shower). After the pores are open it will be easy to pop the blackheads out without running the risk of scarring. Once you’re done splash your face with cold water and then wipe with some witch hazel for added soothing. Removing the blackheads will give you a better complexion so you are more confident, naturally!
9. Moisturize Dry Skin
Are your elbows or feet super dry and irritating? If so, skip those expensive lotions and use a natural beauty remedy. Start by cutting an orange in half. After this, rub it onto your elbows, knees, feet and any other areas that where you have dry skin. Rinse off when finished and your skin will feel softer, look better and smell great because of the natural acids in oranges.
10. Moisturize Your Body
While you should moisturize your dry skin, you should also moisturize the rest of your skin. This will make you look younger, glowing and more beautiful than ever. There are a lot of different recipes, but one of the best is: 1/2 cup almond oil, 1/4 cup of coconut oil, 1/4 cup beeswax, 1 tsp vitamin e, 2 tbsp shea butter and a few drops of lavender oils. You make this by mixing all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Once combined you can store it in a glass jar and use to moisturize your skin at any time. The best part is that it can even be used on your face to help fight wrinkles and age spots!
