Want natural beauty? It starts with natural products: you avoid chemicals in your food, so avoid them in skin care products and cosmetics too.
Here's how to be a natural beauty.
1. Choose a Natural Soap
Start by choosing a natural, organic soap. Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It's delicious, so avoid harsh chemicals in your soap.
Natural soaps are made of products like olive oil, essential oils, and herbs. My current favorite is a milk and honey soap with neem oil.
2. Choose Natural Facial Skin Care Products to Cleanse and Moisturize
As with soap, choose natural facial skin care products. Here's a fast and easy skin cleanser: rose hip oil. Smooth the oil on, and remove makeup with a witch hazel-soaked cotton wool ball.
Rose hip oil is a natural source of Retinol A, which researchers say eliminates surface wrinkles, fades age spots, regenerates damaged skin, and softens and reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Rose hip oil makes a great moisturizer too.
3. Choose Mineral Cosmetics
Mineral cosmetics are wildly popular, and there are many different ranges of these products. Mineral cosmetics are made from all natural, finely ground real-earth minerals. They're totally free of all the chemicals, dyes, and preservatives which you find in traditional cosmetics.
Some dermatologists have said that mineral cosmetics are better for your skin because they are chemical-free.
Give them a try, to see if they work for you.
4. Choose Natural Sleep: Get Lots of Rest
There's a reason they call it "beauty sleep." You can not look and feel great if you do not get enough sleep. Did you know that missing out on sleep can even lead to weight gain?
Get at least seven hours of sleep a night: it's not a luxury, it's an investment in good health, and in your beauty.
5. Choose Natural, Unprocessed Food
As the saying goes, what you eat today walks and talks tomorrow.
Just as you avoid putting chemicals on your skin, avoid them in your food too. This means eating natural, unprocessed foods.
Choose bread that's made of wholegrain flour, and avoid all packaged foods.
You can be a natural beauty: just ensure that you stay as close to nature as possible.
