Beauty is pain, they say. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way. Taking care of your body and staying beautiful shouldn’t be an expensive venture. There are easier do-it-yourself alternatives to try out which would give you a beautiful and healthy looking skin. Here are a few:
- Hydrate dry skin with coconut water
Do well to start your morning with a glass of coconut water. It is easy on the stomach hence it is used to soothe tummy troubles like indigestion and acid reflux.
- Hydrate and nourish Lips with shea butter
It is highly concentrated with vitamins and fatty acids to nourish the lips and skin to give it the supple texture.
- Use Aloe Vera to Transform Red Irritated Skin Into Soft Healthy Skin
Aloe Vera gel has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and healing properties, and it easily penetrates the skin to provide nourishment. It helps to sooth the skin that has been overexposed to the sun, as well as for treating minor cuts and scrapes, eczema, and acne.
- Clean facial pores with honey, turmeric, and yogurt for a smoother complexion
Honey has a healing effect, Tumeric cleanses the pores whiles Yoghurt enhances the lactic acid effects. Just mix together 1 Tablespoon plain yogurt, 1 Tablespoon raw honey and 1 teaspoon turmeric powder into a paste. Apply to face and neck and leave for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then wash with cool water, pat your skin dry and apply your favorite serum and moisturizer.
- Get Radiant Skin By Cutting down on Sugar
Sugar contributes to skin inflammation such as as acne, dry itchy skin and wrinkles. Cut down on your sugar intake and see your skin looking its very best.
- Reduce skin creases by changing your pillowcase
To enjoy your sleep and reduce friction and skin compression which leaves extra lines on the face in the morning, choose a pillowcase that is soft and silky instead of coarser fabrics. If you sleep on your side, try switching sides occasionally or sleeping on your back, so your face doesn’t wrinkle over time from pressure in certain areas. But, don’t stress about this… because ultimately, you want to be comfortable because high-quality sleep is essential for natural beauty.
