Why don’t we take things to the next level in terms of beauty and give makeup up completely? Teenage girls, young women, and adult women alike can look amazing without a drop of makeup on their faces. Surely, many achieve a perfect look with nude makeup tricks. However, not all women favor this concept. They just do not want to put anything on their faces at all! Are you wondering how to look pretty without makeup at school, at work, or at parties? We’ve got you covered!
1. Exfoliate Your Skin at Least Once a Week
You can buy a face scrub from the drugstore, or you can make a natural all-organic face scrub for your type of skin. We are fond of the latter alternative. Scrubbing and exfoliating your skin once or twice a week allows you to show young and fresh skin. A good face scrub also eliminates impurities, spots, blackheads, and blemishes, activating your natural beauty and inner healthy glow. If you have combination skin, you should consider this tutorial on best face wash for combination skin as well. Many experts swear by them.
2. Hydrate and Moisturize Daily
The first step here is to determine what type of skin you have. If you are aware that you have oily skin/dry skin/combination skin, your choice of moisturizer should start from here. We discussed dry skin extensively, but the advice there applies to all types of skin: hydration and moisturizing are mandatory.
Keeping your face moisturized means you are keeping it free from clogged pores, fine lines, crow’s feet, age spots, and so on. In addition, well-hydrated skin looks young and fresh. It glows in a healthy manner and allows you to pull off a no makeup look brilliantly.
3. Wash Your Hair Often
In fact, wash your hair according to your hair type and needs. But do not forget to wash it and rinse it with cold water. Dirty, greasy hair makes you look unkempt. This is not how to look pretty without makeup. On the contrary, showing off your silky, voluminous hair changes the game completely, as it will make you look fresh, young, and cool even if you don’t wear makeup. Also, get your hair a trim to keep it looking perfect, with no messy strands or end splits.
4. Use Sunscreen
Many women tend to forget about sunscreen, and yet, UV rays are your worst enemy. Their most visible side effects on your face are spots, blemishes, rashes, wrinkles, aging symptoms, and so on. Sunscreen is just as important as your moisturizer and you should use it every time you get out of the house. Yes, even in winter. Mineral sunscreen is all the rage right now and for all the right reasons, so make sure you do your homework well!
5. Drink As Much Water as You Can
Proper hydration is health, and health is beauty glowing from within. There is no way around drinking water responsibly on a daily basis. However, if you want to turn things up a notch, drink lemon water (cold or hot). We have explained the benefits of lemon water on your health and looks before, but this is worth repeating: a cup of hot lemon water early in the morning flushes your body toxins away and keeps your skin healthy.
Exercise is the beating heart of your balanced and beautiful life and looks. If you want to pull off a no-makeup look when you go to work, start your early morning with a 30 minutes cardio session. Pumping blood in your organism and giving your endorphins a boost is the best makeup you can wear every day of your life. Intense blood circulation increases skin cells production and recovery. Therefore, the secret of your Monday morning radiance is your quick core strengthening session, not the fourth cup of coffee you had on your way to the office.
7. Pick the Proper Diet and Lifestyle
We said it before and we will say it again: a balanced diet is a key to gorgeous skin. Embrace the vitamins that are good for your skin, together with minerals and omega-3 fatty acids, and plenty of water. Pamper yourself with a sea salt or an Epsom Salt bath. Treat your face and body with natural oils for moisture and healing. Run, jog, or dance. It does not matter. Your skin will be grateful for all your lifestyle changes.
