Every girl wants to be beautiful and invests a small fortune into makeup, clothes, accessories, etc. However, you don’t have to get a facial and pro makeup to look stunning. There are a few tricks that will enhance your natural beauty and won’t cost you hundreds of dollars. It’s all about style, lifestyle, and a clever use of makeup.
3 Ways to Enhance Your Natural Beauty with Little to No Effort
1. Switch to a healthy lifestyle right now
There’s a host of studies on the subject of nutrition and skin health. A great article published in the Dermato Endocrinology journal sums up this research rather well. The conclusion that scientists agree on?
Eating a healthy diet full of fruits, veggies, and other sources of antioxidants will slow down skin aging.
This will also have the pleasant effect of helping you fight a variety of skin disorders, such as acne, psoriasis, rosacea, etc. Even when the condition can’t be cured, a healthy diet is a necessary requirement for its management.
Furthermore, leading a healthy lifestyle requires:
- Getting rid of bad habits, including smoking and drinking.
- Exercising regularly.
- Drinking more water (8 glasses daily).
Each of these factors will also serve to enhance the beauty of not only your skin, but also your body. A healthy diet and regular exercise, even if it’s a mere 30-minute walk, will help you shape up. This will definitely boost your self-confidence and reduce the stress you feel about your appearance. This, in turn, will boost your skin health, as stress and anxiety often lead to premature wrinkles, breakouts, and other issues.
2. Accessorize for style, elegance, and subtle nuances
Accessories can help enhance your natural beauty by drawing attention to your most attractive features. In the meantime, they can be used to ‘hide’ some imperfections. Well-chosen accessories will also make you look stylish. An excellent sense of style can make all the difference for a woman. For example, consider Coco Chanel, an icon in the world of beauty and fashion. Yet, she has never been what one would call a ‘classic beauty’.
In fact, start with one of her accessorizing tricks, which is layering your necklaces. This will highlight your neck and make it seem longer and more graceful. Long enough necklaces will also draw attention to your cleavage. Choose the pieces wisely when layering, as none of them should be ‘too much’. Opt for elegant pieces, like a Charmed Simplicity Necklace combined with two thin chains, one silver and one yellow gold. Each piece should be of a different length, and the one with a charm should be the longest.
Another important accessory is sunglasses. They are invaluable for both protecting your eyesight from UV rays and making summer makeup unnecessary. Hats and scarves can be used for the same purposes, as well as to conceal a ‘bad hair’ day or to draw attention from some other imperfection.
3. Have regular ‘days off’ for skin, body, and mind
DailyMail says that going without makeup for only two days a week can enhance your beauty naturally. Add to this the benefits of relaxation and mindfulness meditation, and you’ll see that to stay pretty at all times, you have to give yourself an occasional break.
The best way to do this is to make your days off a sacred ritual in beauty. You don’t have to spend an entire day on facial masks and other treatments. However, you should let your skin and body relax. A calming bath with chamomile, rosemary, or lavender will help relax your body and mind. The herbs also offer an extra perk of making your skin healthier.
So, don’t deny yourself a chance to relax and simply enjoy life for a few moments. This will make you happier, and nothing adds more glow to the skin than joy.
