Making the most of your natural beauty is a good idea if you often find yourself short on time, and can’t be bothered to go through a 20 step makeup/get ready routine. When you spend time making the most of your natural beauty each day, you’ll often spend less time getting ready in the long run – even if you’re going to a fancy event.
It’s all about how to enhance your natural beauty, and get into a habit of making little tweaks that really work for you.
Below, you’ll find some quick ideas that will help just about anybody to make the most of their natural beauty – without having to pile of the makeup and abuse the hair styling every day!
Take Care Of Your Skin
Start by taking care of your skin. When you have healthy, dewy, beautiful skin, there’s no need to spend ages applying foundation and other products. You still can, of course, but the result will always be smoother and more flawless. Plus, you’ll often use less of it. You should get into a consistent routine with your skin, taking into account your skin type so you know what sort of products you should be using.
You don’t need to use fancy products or have an extensive routine, but you should be consistent. Cleanse, tone, and moisturise morning and night – apply serums if you want to treat specific skincare concerns, and always apply SPF to protect from sun damage. The sun doesn’t need to be out for it to damage the skin!
Find Ways To Enhance What You Already Have
Now try to find ways to enhance what you already have. If your hair is naturally wavy, could you perhaps apply a wave enhancing cream or spray to enhance your curls and reduce time getting ready? Or if your hair is frizzy/prone to bed head hair, could you sleep in buns or plaits to create a nice natural wave?
Applying a few simple makeup products could also help too, if you feel you need them. A tinted moisturiser, a slick of mascara and some tinted lip balm could be all you need to get the day started. Even a glow enhancing BB cream can work wonders and can be applied super quickly.
If you want to take further steps to enhance what you already have, you might want to look into your teeth, like a same day smile makeover. Your teeth can make a huge difference to your face, and there’s only so much that whitening can do alone. Teeth are usually the secret to how confident we feel, so it’s worth assessing how you feel about yours.
Wear Clothes You Love
Wearing clothes you love will put a spring in your step and make you more confident. You’ll sit up straighter, hold yourself better and likely feel far more productive for the rest of the day. Wear clothes you feel flatters your skin tone, eye colour, and personality. Ultimately, just make sure you feel good and can get things done!
Take Care Of Yourself Inside and Out
There are all kinds of ways you can take care of yourself inside and out. Start by applying moisturiser to your body after bathing, and ensure you get plenty of sleep each night. Stay hydrated by drinking 2 litres of water each day, and get exercise where you can.
Take a vitamin supplement. Make sure you stretch your body. Get facials when you can (or face mask regularly at home). Use quality products woth effective ingredients. Don’t scrimp on things like face wash, toothpaste and hair care. When you take the steps to stay healthy, you’ll glow!
Avoid Taking Up Bad Habits
Bad habits like smoking and drinking to excess will have an effect on you, even if it takes time. Avoid making these turn into habits, or else they could be super hard to break, and your beauty will suffer! You’ll avoid premature ageing and serious health issues the more you keep away from alcohol and smoking, and there is so much research out there to back this up.
