Although modern style trends may fool some people, the majority of society has never truly veered away from the natural beauty look. There are so many women who feel they can only be desired if they look a certain way or are able to pull off a certain look a particular celebrity is wearing. The truth is that most of the time, self-consciousness gets the better of us and we play along with what may be perceived as modern beauty standards. The somewhat bizarre thing is, the natural beauty look actually takes less effort and time to get and maintain than any conventional makeup look or trend on the market. Granted it takes discipline to achieve and even more so to make sure you’re able to make it look effortless. However, if you’re ready to take off the layers you’re hiding behind and do a little facial spring cleaning, there are some things you must do.

Natural Face Scrub

Better skin

A lot of the time, women put foundation on because they don’t like the tone of their skin and the natural look may bother them. But, for the natural beauty looks which feature in gothic paintings, and various works of art, the skin should be totally natural. All that you need to do is to have great circulation and an understanding of how you get clear skin. Blemishes are little patches where bacteria has formed, either through a scratch on the surface and your natural oils mixing with the wound or a slight injury. You can use homemade scrubs that work with your natural oils and don’t block your pores. They can bring a certain amount of sheen to your skin, resulting in a smooth and clear surface. You should also drink a lot of water as hydration helps in maintaining a lovely plump torsion to your skin, giving it a natural bounce.

Dental Powder

Fix your smile

Unfortunately for many people, they have very little to no enamel on their teeth which protects them from staining or permanent discoloration. Buy a teeth whitening kit from the market, which has been tried and tested by many consumers. The best products will have the lowest amount of chemicals and an abundance of natural ingredients like aloe vera. Moreover, if your teeth are crooked, and you don’t want to go through a long period where you need to wear braces, you can get fitted for an invisible brace treatment such as Invisalign. It’s great for crowding, closing spaces between teeth, fixing an underbite or overbite. They’re great for adults as you don’t need to have metal braces fixed as for some this might give off a juvenile image.

Lemon Candy Eye Serum & Collagen Masks

Bags under the eyes

Black circles can form around your eyes, and your skin can begin to sag under your eyelids if you don’t get enough sleep or drink enough water. To get brighter looking eyes, get at least the normal 8 hours of sleep every day, and make no exceptions. Equally, you can very gently, rub acidic textures on your eyes, such as cuts of lemon, lime and kiwis to drain that tired look away. The acid in the fruit and vegetables helps to revitalize your skin with a pop and bang of fresh new color coming through.

Getting the au’ natural look takes time and consistency. However, once you’ve got beautiful clear and healthy skin, all you need to do is maintain it. The exact same with your smile because once crooked teeth have been fixed, use a whitening kit to get the whole package.

You may have had a long week at work, it might be your birthday, or you could just feel that you deserve it! Whatever the reason, we all wish we could be whisked away for a spa weekend every now and then. Unfortunately, it can often take time to travel to a spa. They’re usually set within beautiful grounds somewhere deep in the countryside. The time it takes to get there, coupled with the expense, is enough to put anyone off a massage! What if you didn’t have to travel anywhere for the ultimate spa experience, and what if it was a fraction of the price, would you do it…

Sage Candle

Setting the Scene

There are some essential things you’ll need to create the perfect atmosphere for your home spa. Let’s face it, children’s toys in the bath isn’t going to make for a very relaxing experience. The best way to transform your bathroom on a budget is to accessorize it. Buy items that will help turn the room into a tranquil spa, but can also be stored for everyday use.

Candles are a great first step. Buy scented candles to give a relaxing aroma. The key to any great spa is engaging all of the senses. Candles will help you to have dimmer lighting but also provide the key aspect of smell to help you relax and be transported. To create a really indulgent home spa, invest in some larger candles too. Little tea lights in jars are nice but some larger lanterns will really help to pull the look together. Make sure you have a good book, a stack of magazines, or a stereo outside the door. Whatever helps you to relax. Or you may just want to enjoy the silence.

Bath Bombs

The Perfect Products

Once you’ve set the perfect spa scene you’ll need to turn your attention to the products you’ll need. First and foremost make sure you buy a soap bubble bath. Choose a scented bath bomb or a simple bubble bath for you to relax and soak in. If you have any skin allergies or are worried about irritating your skin be sure to choose a hypoallergenic formula.

Next concentrate on the products you’ll need for your body. A body scrub is a good way to exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin. You only really need to exfoliate your body once a week, so incorporate this into your spa session. The next must-have product for the perfect home spa is essential oils. If you’ve been to a spa before you’ll know that these are everywhere. Used to perform relaxing massages and soften skin, essential oils have amazing benefits. After using these oils, which are extracted from plants and flowers, your skin should look restored and fresh.

Cotton Velour Robe

Finishing Touches

The great thing about a shower is the feeling of relaxation that washed over you and lasts even after the massages have stopped. What you don’t want is to undo all the stress releasing and unwinding that happened in your home spa. Make sure that when you step outside the door the feeling of calm can come with you! Invest in a great bathrobe. Richard Haworth have some which are worthy of any home spa. You’ll want one which is luxurious, absorbent, and comfortable. Similarly, make sure you’ve laid your pajamas and a pair of slipper out ready too. You don’t want to have to start searching for nightwear after your spa session.

Get your basics right

So, before you go onto any of the more complicated treatments for your face, you need to make sure that you are getting the basics correct. A lot of women make mistakes here that can serious cause the skin on their face and neck to age.

For example, if you are scrubbing your face with an exfoliating, or exfoliating cream, it’s probably time to stop. While it feels s great to have a super clean face. The only people that really need to regularly use an exfoliating scrubs are ones that have particularly oily skin.

Otherwise, all you are doing is damaging the skin unnecessarily. It’s much better to use a gentle moisturizing face wash instead. Remember you do not want to dry out your skin at all.

Paula’s Choice Resist Hyaluronic Acid Booster

Some added daily help

Of course, getting a youthful glow is not all about how you wash your face, there are other things that you can do to promote healthy, taught skin as well.

For example, you may choose to use a night cream, which is a heavier moisturizer that is applied before you go to bed. This allows the cream the entire night to be absorbed, and do its work, giving you a more hydrating effect.

Hydration of the skin is vital for a youthful look, and night cream is not the only way to achieve this. In fact, there are some hyaluronic acid serums like the one from OZ Naturals, that are designed to refresh tired skin.

Don’t forget to take your makeup off

Lastly, one of the most damaging things we can do in your skincare routine is to leave your makeup on overnight. Not only is it unhygienic, because all the dirt from they day is being pressed right against your face. But the skin can’t breathe or rehydrate either. So it is vital that it comes off every time.

To do this make sure that you steer clear of normal soap and water. As the PH of the soap is usually too drying to be used on your face every day. Instead use a rotating brush or a gentle cleanser to get the desired result.
