In a world filled with chemicals, natural is always better. This is especially true when it comes to things that we use on our body. There are countless beauty products out there, but if they do more damage in the long run or if you have sensitive skin, they probably aren’t the best idea for you.
Sparkling Water Facials
For this, all you need is sparkling water. There are no additional soaps or creams for this hack. Simply fill a bowl with the sparkling water, take a breath, and dip your face in it. The tiny carbonated bubbles offer several benefits like clearing dirt out of pores, firming skin, and best of all it is ideal for all skin types since the only ingredient is water.
DIY Cleansing Pads
Cleansing pads can be expensive, so this saves money as well as helping your skin. Depending on what you like and what you have on hand, you can create a variety of cleansers. One of the more popular ones combines apple cider vinegar with water. Apply this to your face with a cotton ball and use moisturizer after. Your skin will be refreshed after every single use and super clean talk about a win-win.
Use Natural Makeup
Natural makeup can help you enjoy your beautiful look, without worrying about chemicals that might affect your skin. There are plenty of options that are also easy on your skin if you have to deal with sensitivities. It is also easy to remove, making your bedtime routine easier and simpler. Just wash off with soap and water, and voila! You are done!
Add Essential Oils to Skincare
You can also add essential oils to your skincare routine. Not only will they help your skin smell wonderful, but they can also clarify your skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes. doTERRA recommends adding one or two drops of cedarwood to your toner or moisturizer for added clarifying.
Get Tan Without Risk
The sun-kissed look is always amazing, but with tanning beds increasing your risk for skin cancer exponentially it can be hard to achieve the look during the winter months. Rather than buy expensive self-tanners that often leave you looking a bit orange, whip up your own version with only lotion and cocoa powder. The lotion will be darker in the bowl than on your skin, so experiment in small areas of your skin to find the right shade.
There are so many natural ingredients used in commercial beauty products that most people aren't aware they can use. Natural products are not only better for our bodies, but better for the environment as well and when we make our own beauty supplies we know exactly what went into them. Be beautiful and confident because you have the power to do it yourself.
