Wearing makeup every day can be annoying not only because of the frequent touch-ups that it requires throughout the day but also because you actually have to get up early to put it on and spend half an hour taking it off in the evening.
And every makeup lover knows that the worst part of wearing makeup is that you can’t go to sleep right away (even if you are super tired) because you have to remove it. Otherwise, we bear the risk of experiencing blocked pores, breakouts, and even early signs of aging.
In the past years, many people make the decision to go makeup-free because of several reasons:
- It takes them too much time to put in on and take it off
- Find it too expensive to maintain their makeup collection
- Feeling not like themselves (especially if wearing full-face makeup)
- Experience allergic reactions from makeup products
- Want to be (and look) more natural
But can we look attractive even without any makeup! Of course! Because we are all uniquely gorgeous!
And in this article, you will find some tips on how to look more attractive when you are all-natural!
Let’s get started!
Cleanse your skin
Makeup is a very efficient solution when we want to cover skin imperfections. But we can work our way towards flawless skin step by step!
The number 1 priority in this path is to cleanse our skin properly. If you think about it, it is the largest organ in our body and, at the same time, has most interactions with the external environment. That includes free radicals, such as UV rays, pollution, bacteria, radiation, extreme temperatures, smoke, and others, which damage our skin barrier and are the main cause for breakouts, blocked pores, and irritation.
Cleansing your skin twice a day with a suitable product (according to your skin type) gets rid of all the dirt and bacteria on our skin and help it to restore and strengthen its protective barrier.
This ritual is a MUST to make your skin smooth, glowing, vibrant, and with even tone without any makeup. Just pay attention to the ingredients label in your cleanser, as you don’t want any irritants, such as formaldehyde, sulfates, or drying alcohols.
In the long term, daily cleansing will transform your skin for good and will make you look more attractive without any makeup on.
Moisturizing your skin is another important factor, which will make you look prettier! Because when your skin is healthy, it looks glowing!
Using creams, lotions, moisturizers, and serums help us to maintain the impeccable look and prevent flaky and irritated skin, or red and dry patches. Those products nourish the skin layers and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, as well as new and healthy skin cells, which, to strengthen the epidermis, make it more flexible and resistant to damage.
Drink enough water
Hydrating the skin from inside out is also key to make it look better and healthier.
Drinking enough water ensures that the skin has enough water available to replenish itself effectively. It makes our face look and feel more energized and supple, as at the same time reduces the risk of premature aging signs such as wrinkles, fine lines, and pigmentation.
The recommended daily water intake, according to the World Health Organization, is about 2 liters, which can also be consumed in the form of tea. If you follow those recommendations, the effects of such proper internal hydration will be visible on your skin from the first day!
Superfoods, or antioxidant foods, are great for our skin and hair. They stimulate healthy skin replenishment and hair growth, and ensure fresh and energized look without any makeup on.
The vitamins and minerals balance the sebum production in the dermis and help our skin to maintain its vibrancy and glow. Besides, antioxidant foods (like broccoli, berries, garlic, salmon, dark chocolate, etc.) help us to fight inflammation, oxidation, allergies, and bacterial infections, and as a result, keep our skin healthy and pretty enough to go out without any “camouflage.”
