All You Need to Care for Your Unique Beauty…

Do you want to look after your natural beauty and keep your unique gorgeous and youthful look for longer? Do you know what it takes to achieve this goal? Applying layers of makeup and undergoing expensive cosmetic surgeries are not the answers. Beauty experts recommend the use of organic products1 to avoid bombarding your body with toxins that are present in most synthetic cosmetics. It’s also advised to keep a simple personal care regimen with naturally-made beauty products. With these points in mind, we’ve compiled a list of tips to help you get going, ranging from the proven and tested to-dos to the less-known self-care ideas.

Exfoliate and Cleanse

Exfoliate and cleanse – these are the first two steps to freshen up your skin. The best thing is: You need not spend too much if you’ll only consider the following natural ways – these can help you shed off dry skin and encourage the growth of new cells…

  • Use ice cubes to treat or curb the appearance of acne.
  • Cleanse product-build up from your hair by using the right clarifying shampoo every week.
  • Use lotion to remove cosmetics instead of makeup remover.
  • Exfoliate with the right type of brush and or non abrasive facial exfoliant regularly do this (preferably every week) to remove dry skin.
  • Apply conditioner or shaving cream first before shaving to ensure a smooth finish.
  • Make your own clarifying hair rinse by mixing 1 cup of water with apple cider vinegar. This should be able to free your strands from the residues of the shampoo you’ve used. For best results, follow this up with the right conditioner.
  • Mix a 1 to 2 ratio of sea salt and olive oil to create a body scrub, which you can use to exfoliate your whole body over the weekend.

Your skin would probably have become dry and flaky having been scrubbed and cleansed. Now the next best move to do is to bring back the shine. That being said, these routines might do the trick…

  • Rub papaya skin over your face and any other areas needing rejuvenation. Papaya is soothing, calming and rich in enzymes so this treatment will naturally rejuvenate your skin from ageing effects of dry air and sun damage. Simply rub the fleshy inside of the skin over your face and allow to dry on and wash off later. Your complexion will be glowing and feeling happy and toned.
