What is Natural Beauty?
What is your idea of Naturally beautiful? Someone with perfect flawless skin and complexion is naturally beautiful? Someone with good height and physical features?(includes perfect body weight and curves) or someone with a pleasant attractive personality? whatever your idea of beauty is, one thing is for sure, and that is you can’t look beautiful when your inner self isn’t satisfied or calm, you are restless, unhappy with your life and have an aura of negativity around you.
Looking naturally beautiful isn’t something everyone is born with. But it is something that is within everyone’s grasp. In short the more calm and relaxed you are, the more you try to be happy has an impact on your overall personality, which as a result make you appear young, radiant, fresh and makes your skin glow. On the other hand, if you are always depressed, worried about the petty issues in life, despite you having a natural beauty, you will lose it soon. In this post, I am going to share with you some essential tips that will not only make you look beautiful naturally but will also help you relax and release stress.
Take Proper night’s Sleep to be Naturally beautiful
first things first, sleep plays a vital role in a person’s physical health. No compromises on sleep. Train yourself to sleep for at least 7 to 8 hours at night. Even if sleep doesn’t come naturally, try to work on it, you can’t expect sleep to come naturally if you are habitual of sleeping at 3 in the morning. When you have adequate sleep, you find yourself in a better mood, you feel good and healthy and naturally less grumpy. So if you want to be naturally beautiful you have to have your beauty sleep( now we don’t want to end up with dark circles and eye bags, do we?).
What you can do
- Read a light book at night, nothing heavy or depressing
- Avoid using cell phone at night for using social media
- Avoid watching news or something that depresses you
- Eat food that has a soothing effect and relaxes your body instead of something that’s too heavy to digest
- Eat at least 2 hours before going to bed
- Avoid caffeine at night
- Have a warm milk before going to bed.
What is done is done. No use crying over a spilled milk. Whenever you go through a bad experience in life. Try to take it out of your system as soon as possible instead of just thinking about it all the time, it doesn’t change anything does it? (Did you know over thinking can make you look aged and double of your age)
What you can do
- Talk to a dear friend and share it
- Watch a comedy movie at home or cinema
- Hang out with friends
- Maintain a journal to write about things that depress you.
- Take a walk
A key to the beautiful healthy skin is an intake of a healthy amount of water, especially in summers. If you don’t drink plenty of water your skin will appear dull, dry and dehydrated.
Take a chill pill
I know its easy said than done. But if you want to be happy and peaceful. You have to learn to take a chill pill. Avoid negative people. Avoid negative situations. In situations where you can’t remove yourself physically, pretend as if your deaf. Take things lightly. Tell yourself it’s nothing serious, it will pass shortly. The more relaxed and happy you are, the more beautiful you (trust me).
Take long Walks and exercise
for a naturally beautiful mind and body, one must maintain a routine to exercise. Can’t go to a gym? no problem you can always go for long walks.
What you can do
- Try to walk to the stores whenever you have to go grocery.
- Try to take a walk in parks or beaches.
- Try walking with neighbors/friends/colleagues who share your interest.
- Avoid going in a car to short distance instead, take a walk.
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables
Try to eat as fresh and healthy as you can. Avoid eating frozen food or excessively eating outside. Substitute fresh juices with whole fruits. And try to avoid cola drinks. You become what you eat. Hence, the more fresh you eat, the more fresh you will look. Eat smart look smart. Try to eat a balanced diet which includes fish, fresh fruits and vegetables.
What you can do
- Don’t starve yourself in order to have a size zero figure, it won’t work in the long run, and can cause some serious deficiencies.
- Eat a healthy combination of carbohydrates, protein, and fats.
Exfoliate and Moisturize
Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week is a must to waken up your skin and gives it a natural glow. Don’t over do it or vigorously as it can damage your skin. Be gentle with your movements and don’t forget to moisturize your skin with a right moisturizer according to your skin type before going to bed.
Use Sunblock and Anti-aging
Whenever you go out in daytime, always make sure that you apply sunblock. Sun block is important for your skin as it protects it from harmful sun rays which damage your skin resulting in two toned skin and pigmentation. If you are above 25 then you must also invest in a good anti-aging cream.
Practice Meditation. It’s a healthy activity for everyone, but especially people with chronic anxiety. It helps to quieten the overactive mind. Its benefits include lasting emotional control, reduce pain sensitivity, relax your body, and mind. When you’re peaceful, you automatically look beautiful naturally without using makeup or any expensive chemical treatments.
