12 All Natural Beauty Tips For Any Skin Type

1. Eliminate Tired Puffy Eyes With Chilled Tea Bags

Natural Beauty Tips For Tired Puffy Eyes

The skin around your eyes is softer, thinner, and more sensitive to inflammation. Which is why environmental or topical toxins, a lack of sleep, hormonal changes and allergies often lead to tired puffy eyes.

To eliminate tired puffy eyes just use chilled tea bags. The antioxidants, caffeine, and tannins in green, black, and chamomile teas help reduce irritation and work to soothe your skin quickly. The anti-inflammatory properties in teas also reduce fluid retention and promote blood circulation around your eyes – giving your eyes a fresh, renewed appearance.

To use chilled tea bags – briefly steep 2 green, black, or chamomile tea bags in hot water for less than a minute. Then remove the tea bags from the water and chill in a small bowl in the refrigerator. Once chilled, place 1 bag over each closed eyelid. Leave on your lids for 5 to 15 minutes.

2. Use Raspberries And Coconut Oil For Brighter Lips

Natural Beauty Tips For Brighter Lips

A range of lifestyle and medical factors can lead to darker or duller lips over time. Most often this harmless condition can be caused by excessive sun exposure, dehydration, lip sucking, allergic reactions, smoking, etc.

You can brighten darker and duller lips with cosmetic procedures like laser or chemical treatments (such as hydroquinone and kojic acid). Or you can use raspberries and coconut oil as a natural lip brightener.

Raspberries are one of the few fruits rich in Vitamin E – so its antioxidant properties help reduce skin damage and nourish your skin. And coconut oil is a fantastic natural skin moisturizer that melts on your skin as soon as you apply it. So it seeps directly into your skin’s pores.

When combined raspberries and coconut oil nourish and moisturize your lips deeply and thoroughly – for a brighter healthy look.

To use raspberries and coconut oil – warm 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil in a small saucepan on low heat until it liquefies. Remove from heat and add 4 fresh or frozen red raspberries. Mash berries and blend until smooth. Place in a small glass container and refrigerate until firm. Use clean fingers or a lipgloss brush to smooth over lips. Make this fresh every few days.

3. Get A Natural Face Lift With Simple Yoga Poses

Natural Beauty Tips For A Natural Lift And Vitality

Ever wonder why some women have firm, smooth skin no matter season it is? Ask them and you’ll likely learn they do yoga. Yep, yoga! Doing inverted yoga poses will boost oxygen-rich blood circulation to your head which will help give your face some extra lift and vitality.

Yoga also helps you relax, can elevate your mood, and help balance your hormones which can lead to firmer, smoother looking skin.

The “downward dog” yoga pose is both simple and easy to do by getting on the floor on your hands and knees and then straightening your legs. Even rather simple yoga poses like bending down and touching your toes can work miracles on your face. Stay in one of these positions as long as you feel comfortable, for about 1 to 5 minutes.

If you have physical limitations such as injuries or back pain, check with your healthcare provider for ways you can modify these poses to better suit your needs.

4. Get Soft, Kissable Skin With A Natural Pomegranate, Raspberry, and Sweet Almond Oil Blend

Natural Beauty Tips To Turn Dry Skin Into Luminous Soft Skin

Your skin contains a mixture of skin cells and natural oils that help it stay hydrated. If your skin is damaged (from aging, sun exposure, harsh chemicals, some medicines, etc.) and isn’t able to retain moisture, or if your skin’s cell renewal process goes haywire, your skin can become dry, flaky, or scaly.

If you don’t have a condition that requires a medical provider’s care, and you’d like to avoid over-the-counter products that may or may not work… you can always naturally hydrate dry skin – and add an extra glow to the end of your skin care routine – by creating an antioxidant-rich oil blend using natural pomegranate, sweet almond oil and raspberry oils.

Pomegranate oil has anti-aging properties due to a high amount of Vitamin C, and it can help in the production of collagen. Almond oil is mild and hypoallergenic which makes it great for sensitive skin. It’s also rich in Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps your skin cells regenerate faster. And raspberry seed oil is rich in ellegic acid and Vitamin E which have anti-aging effects and help prevent oxidative damage.

When combined, these three oils make an incredible moisturizer that softens your skin.

How to create a pomegranate, raspberry, and sweet almond oil blend:

Apply after cleansing or after putting on makeup. Mix together equal parts Pomegranate seed oil, Raspberry seed oil, and Sweet Almond Oil.

Place 3 to 6 drops of the oil mixture in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together to warm the oils. Then, with your fingertips gently press the warm oil into dry areas of your face or areas where you have fine lines and wrinkles.

5. Reduce Skin Creases By Changing Your Pillowcase

Natural Beauty Tips To Reduce Skin Creases

Sleep wrinkles?! Even with a flawless skin care routine, using the best skin care products, you can still wake up each morning with sleep wrinkles if your bedsheets and pillowcase are made from coarser fabrics.

As you get older, sleep wrinkles can occur because your skin loses collagen and elasticity. If you sleep on your side or front – the pressure, friction and compression from the weight of your head on the pillow or bed can cause your skin to fold and crease. With younger skin those folds and creases fade quickly due to plenty of collagen and elasticity in your skin. But as you get older those sleep lines tend to stick together more and deepen. Leaving permanent sleep wrinkles on your face.

To help reduce skin creases, instead of using bedsheets and pillowcases made from coarser fabrics, choose materials that are soft, smooth and silky – with a high thread count.

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… ultimately, you want to be comfortable because high-quality sleep is essential for natural beauty.

6. Hydrate Dry Skin With Coconut Water

Natural Beauty Tips To Hydrate Dry Skin

Most of the time, dry ashy skin is just a minor annoyance. But sometimes, it leads to uncomfortable itchy patches, or burning rough spots. Dry ashy skin is caused by a lack of moisture, which leaves your skin dehydrated.

While soaps, lotions, and detergents that contain harsh chemicals often cause skin to dry out. So will cold, harsh weather, with low air humidity; and long hot baths or showers with prolonged water exposure.

If you’re looking to hydrate your skin from the inside out – so your skin appears nourished and vibrant – coconut water is a great choice.

Coconut water is rich in nutrients, acts an anti-inflammatory, a detoxifier and an anti-microbial – which means it helps promote clear skin. More importantly though, coconut water naturally moisturizes your skin without adding excess oil. And the presence of potassium in coconut water helps with hydration balance for fluid and electrolyte levels in your body.

So start your morning with a glass of fresh unsweetened coconut water. And, then – throughout the day – drink filtered water. At meals include skin-hydrating foods such as wild salmon, avocado, olives, and coconut.

7. Prevent Sun Damaged Skin By Eating Wild Salmon

Natural Beauty Tips For Glowing Skin And To Prevent Sun Damage

Sun exposure accelerates the effects aging your skin and increases your risk for developing skin cancer. Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays damage the fibers in your skin called elastin.

When these fibers break down, your skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its elasticity – or its ability to return to a youthful shape and bounce after stretching. Which is why sun damage causes most of the wrinkles (and age spots) you’ll see on people’s faces.

You can help your skin stay healthy though, and provide it with an “internal sun block” when you eat wild salmon. Wild salmon helps prevent sun damage because it contains high levels of astaxanthin. Which makes wild salmon something of a super food.

Astaxanthin is the reason wild salmon has a red pigment, and is a potent antioxidant that helps protect your skin from the harmful effects of UVA sun damage because of its capacity to promote skin elasticity and hydration. Leading to healthy, younger looking skin.

It’s found in seafood such as salmon, krill, shrimp, lobster, crabs, and crayfish. You can also get astaxanthin through supplements. Enjoy several servings per week of wild salmon and seafood and consider taking a supplement every day, especially during sunny times of the year. You also want to protect your skin on the outside with a natural sun protector.

8. Remove Dead Skin And Revitalize Your Face With An Organic Papaya Mask

Natural Beauty Tips To Remove Dead Skin

Every day your skin sheds millions of dead skin cells. The natural life cycle of skin is for these dead skin cells – which originate in each layer of skin – to move from the lower (hypodermic and dermis) layers through the surface (epidermis) layer where they can fall off.

But when dead skin cells get stuck on their way to the surface of your skin blackheads, whiteheads or pimples appear. By helping remove the upper layers of dead skin, you can diminish the risk of blocked pores and keep your skin healthy.

Using an exfoliant is a great way to remove dead skin and revitalize your face. Many exfoliants though contain abrasive ingredients that scratch, which may damage your skin and speed up signs of aging.

So it’s best to use an enzymatic exfoliant that contains fruit like papaya and pineapple.

Papaya contains the natural enzyme papain, and pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain. These two protein-dissolving agents help naturally exfoliate and lift away dry, dead skin cells. And when dead skin cells are removed, the risk of developing blackheads and pimples diminishes. Leaving your skin healthy, smooth, and soft.

How to make an organic papaya mask:

Greener (unripe) papayas have higher amounts of papain, so opt for these to get the best benefit. If you have sensitive skin, use ripe papayas as they are less likely to trigger an inflammatory reaction.

Scoop out a ¼ cup raw papaya flesh and mash or blend with 1 Tablespoon fresh pineapple until smooth. Apply to dry skin and leave on for 5 to 15 minutes. Then rinse with cool water. If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test on your arm before applying to face.

The alpha hydroxy acids and the enzymes in this recipe dissolve dry, dead skin. You only need to do this once or twice per week.

9. Turn Mineral Makeup Powder Into A Natural Sunblock

Natural Beauty Tips To Create A Natural Beauty Sunblock

It’s no secret that prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays leads to sunburns and an increased risk of skin cancer. Which is why it’s a good idea to wear sunscreen year round. Because sunscreen helps your skin look healthier and younger.

Many sunscreens contain chemical ingredients though – that can do more harm to your skin and health than they do to protect your skin from UV rays. So when choosing a sunscreen avoid those with chemicals and opt instead for one that’s mineral based.

Mineral sunscreens use two natural minerals — zinc oxide and titanium dioxide — as active ingredients. And instead of absorbing into your skin, these minerals sit on top of your skin; protecting it by reflecting UV rays away.

But when applied to your skin, mineral sunscreens can sometimes appear white and pasty. Not exactly the look you’re probably going for.

However, you can protect your skin from sun damage AND avoid a white, pasty look by combining mineral powder makeup with your mineral sunscreen.

It’s the best of both worlds.

You can use a tinted mineral sunblock instead of foundation, or mix your favorite mineral makeup powder with a sunblock for a natural makeup that is light and protects your skin from the sun’s damaging effects. Helping keep your skin healthy and protected

10. Hydrate And Nourish Lips With Shea Butter

Natural Beauty Tips That Hydrate And Nourish Lips

The skin on your lips is soft, delicate, and sensitive. Which is why kissing feels so good! But it’s also why sudden temperature changes, dry air, and wind exposure can cause your lips to become chapped, crack and even split.

The skin that covers your lips is some of the thinnest found on your body. While certain parts of your face — like your cheeks — have as many as 16 layers of skin, your lips only have four or five layers. That’s why it’s so easy for your lips to become irritated almost any time of the year.

Your lips are also prone to flaking and peeling since they’re unable to produce their own moisture, and they don’t have the same protection from the elements as the rest of your skin.

Using a lip balm is a great way to hydrate and nourish your lips. Unfortunately, many traditional lip balms contain petrolatum, mineral oil, and hormone-disrupting oxybenzone that only further perpetuate the problem.

A better approach is to use a lip balm made from nourishing natural ingredients such as shea butter (or cocoa butter) and coconut oil.

Shea butter is fat that’s extracted from the nuts of the shea tree. Its high concentration of vitamins and fatty acids — combined with its easy-to-spread consistency — make it great for smoothing, soothing, and conditioning your lips. And coconut oil is a fantastic natural skin moisturizer that melts on your lips as soon as you apply it.

11. Get Clear Radiant Skin By Cutting Sugar Out

Natural Beauty Tips For Clear Radiant Skin

Sugar is the biggest contributor to inflammation that shows up on your skin as acne, dry itchy skin, and wrinkles. Sugar is highly acidic – and sure, all acidic foods cause inflammation to some degree, but sugar is one of the worst.

Sugar causes significant, rapid changes in blood sugar. Whenever you eat foods with a high sugar content, your blood sugar rises rapidly. Then, once the hormone that regulates blood sugar is released into your cells, it falls again. When you experience this sugar crash, you often feel hungry, shaky, and moody. Every time this happens, your body experiences internal stress, which often leads to breakouts and dull-looking skin.

The inflammatory properties of sugar can also cause red, irritated skin. Many people who suffer from rashes or are prone to yeast imbalances can trace their issues back to a diet loaded with sugar.

To protect yourself and maintain balanced blood sugar levels, eat meals that contain plenty of fiber, protein, and healthy fats. And to clear your skin, eliminate refined sugars and foods with added sweeteners, including white and brown sugar, agave syrup, molasses, maple syrup, and honey… and focus instead on beautifying green veggies.

Try cutting sugar from your diet for 10 days, especially if you have an important day coming up and want to look your best. If you want a touch of sweetness, opt for fresh fruit or the natural sweetener Stevia instead.

12. Reduce Fine Lines And Wrinkles With Bone Broth

Natural Beauty Tips To Reduce Fine Lines And Wrinkles

Collagen helps give your skin its tone and is crucial for healthy, younger looking skin. As a structural protein, collagen supports your skin’s elasticity, as you age though the collagen production in your body will naturally start depleting – which is why you’ll want to consider taking a high-quality collagen supplement from a clean source.

Since the loss of collagen leads to the appearance of lines, wrinkles and even thinning of the skin, the more you’re able to maintain higher levels of collagen the more youthful your skin will appear.

To help with collagen production eat foods rich in Vitamin C, but for a more direct approach – try bone broth and gelatin. They both contain collagen your body can quickly absorb.

Bone broth is rich in collagen, and helps support tissue regeneration by feeding your body proteins that encourage the appearance of new cells. It also acts as a detoxifier, which makes your skin look healthier since it helps diminish the appearance of blackhead and pimples.

Bone broth is also rich in glycine and proline. These amino acids are responsible for the correct production of collagen to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and promote healthy digestion too. {Spadr}
