Everybody longs for that healthy glow, for sparkling eyes and shiny hair that bounces with every step. Millions of dollars are spent every year in beauty products to make skin that much clearer, wrinkles that less visible and lips pout that much more.
And while there are cosmetics that do work, you shouldn’t underestimate the value of natural beauty products. Remedies that are available with nature. They’re easy to find, won’t put a hole in your pocket, and don’t have a trace of any harmful chemicals.
What’s even better is that Mother Nature has created these products for us to use, to help nourish our bodies, and make the most of nature and the natural world. After all what is more beautiful than nature? I can easily lose myself in nature, my daily walks I always find myself straying from the path to immerse myself in the place that I am in, to see something that has been untouched by humans (to an extent) and see if I can find any wildlife living in the bush.
Anyways, back to the purpose of this article. The gifts of nature that are PERFECT for your beauty regime!
Surprisingly Lemon Juice is a really effective treatment for dandruff, when used on hair. Its citrus property helps to cleanse the hair.
Simply squeeze a lemon onto your hair and massage into the scalp (like shampoo), and then wash it out using water. Follow up with your fave shampoo!
Coconut oil has recently become something that all beauty gurus rave about. It has so many benefits for your body and hair alike, and if you haven’t tried using it yet, then this is definitely a must.
Coconut Oil is used in several parts of the world as an aid to beautiful hair. It has enriching vitamins and nutrients that help your hair to grow long and lustrous. In addition, it also combats dandruff.
This one was a big surprise to me. I didn’t realise that I could use vinegar as part of my beauty products but it turns out it is great to add some bounce and vitality into dull and lifeless hair. Mix a little vinegar into warm water, and then rinse your hair with the solution. Your hair will look revitalized. (I don’t mean the dark stuff that you put on your chips, I mean the white vinegar that you use for cleaning products)
The importance of water cannot be stated enough.
It is one of the most important contributors to beautiful skin. It flushes out toxins and battles breakouts. A person should drink at least eight glasses of water per day. Warm showers are also very beneficial to the skin. When your skin is well hydrated, it looks young and healthy.
I love water so much that I actually have an article all about the benefits that it has to your body.
They’re more than just pretty flowers! Rosewater is extremely good for the skin. It purifies the skin, and leaves it wonderfully scented. Combined with hazel, it is especially good for oily skin.
If you want your skin to naturally get fairer and more radiant, you could try turmeric. Just mix a piece of turmeric with curd and apply it onto your skin. Leave the paste on for about ten to fifteen minutes, and then wash off using cold water.
Fruits are one of the best gifts that nature can give you. Most of them are low in calories, and can give you a whole lot of energy. In fact, almost all diets have fruits as an essential part of them.
Spinach leaves are very, very healthy. There’s a reason why Popeye enjoyed spinach so much! It helps to make your body stronger, and more resistant to illnesses and ailments.
An alternative for natural beauty that you could focus on, is taking vitamins. Every vitamin has amazing benefits for our skin, so why not take a peek at my post on vitamins here
