We’d all love to have the confidence to ‘bare all’ and leave the house makeup free. For some who’ve been blessed with incredible genes, it’s possible to look effortlessly good with nothing but lip balm or moisturizer. But let’s face it, for most people, it takes a lot of work to achieve good skin.
Before you say ‘Life is so unfair”… Let’s agree that adopting a good skincare regimen is not that complicated once you’ve discovered what works for your skin, what to avoid, and most importantly, how to love your skin the way nature created it!
Before we go any further, let’s agree that wearing makeup is perfectly ok! It can certainly help to conceal flaws, blemishes, and even wrinkles… But more than that, it’s also so much fun! That being said, some women just want to embrace their natural beauty and stop hiding behind makeup. And to that we say, “You go, girl!”
Where do I start, you ask?
Getting your skincare on point is key to achieving perfect skin (obviously) and following a few good habits is definitely a must, such as making sure you’re eating the right foods, drinking enough water, etc. But just how long do you have to keep this up? And how many products are we talking about here?
It takes 28 days for your skin to really show a difference after using any particular product. Knowing which products work with your skin type is also important and using these natural remedies can get the dry skin on your face pumped full of moisture and looking like a goddess!
Ice, Ice Baby…
Using ice can be an effective way to tighten pores, reduce wrinkles and brighten skin. Rubbing an ice cube over your face in the morning and evenings after cleansing will do wonders to your skin.
The Cucumber Cliché
Cucumber is another great (but cliché) beauty hack to diminish the look of under-eye bags and brighten skin. Grate half a cucumber and spread the pulp around the eye area. This is an amazing 5-minute relaxing face treatment you can do at home so easily. If you have a little extra time, you can spread this across your whole face until it draws all the heat out of the skin and brings blood to the surface, as cucumber is an excellent cooling agent.
