There’s no need to be humble about it: you live a healthy lifestyle. From eating to exercise, you’re conscious of what’s best for your body. And, while those are two huge factors in maintaining a healthy routine, you can always do more. One way to further enhance your daily routine is to incorporate a beauty regimen that’s also health-conscious.
There are myriad benefits to using all-natural or organic skin care and beauty products. Without chemical ingredients, it’s less likely that your beauty regimen will cause skin irritation. They’re also gentler and more effective on your skin over time, while chemical-based products can lose their power once your skin becomes accustomed to the ingredients.
So, if you want to make your beauty regiment the next area of your life that’s healthy, read on — we’ve got xx products that will replace your current medicine cabinet’s worth of products.
1. Add Shine to Your Hair
Some salons offer gloss treatments to boost your hair’s natural shine, but here’s an all-natural way to do it: simply mash up a banana and mix it up with an egg. Slather that thick paste all over your hair and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then, wash as usual, dry and watch how it catches the light. Now, that’s a healthy look.
2. Nourish Your Nails
Whether your cuticles or nails are less than satisfactory, you can fix it without a pricey manicure. Instead, fill a bowl with olive oil and let your fingers go for a five-minute dip. Afterward, you’ll note that the nails look a whole light shinier and healthier. You can also relieve dry cuticles by slathering them with super-rich coconut oil and wrapping each finger in plastic wrap. That way, the nutrients — and moisture — really sink in to give you cuticles that won’t crack.
3. Whiten Your Smile
An at-home whitening kit can do wonders for your smile, but the strips rely on chemical combinations to get the job done quickly and efficiently. Take control the next time your pearly whites need to get back to, well, being pearly white. All you need is aluminum-free baking soda, food-grade peroxide and peppermint essential oil. The paste you create can be used for a few days in a row and then every so often as a touch-up.
4. De-Puff Your Eyes
Even if you get enough sleep at night, you still might wake up with eyes that say otherwise. Puffy under-eye bags give us the appearance of tiredness or sickness, which is especially unappealing when untrue. You can combat the puff, though, with one product: witch hazel. Witch hazel can shrink your blood vessels and tighten skin so that it not only looks less puffy, but also less dark. Voila: you look wide awake now.
5. Bronze Your Bod
A healthy summer glow isn’t quite as healthy as it looks — at least, if you are getting it from tanning. Fortunately, you can substitute bronzers for UV rays and get the same sun-kissed look and, on top of that, there are natural ways of getting the color you want. For instance, if you combine cinnamon, cocoa, arrowroot and nutmeg powders, you can easily brush it on you for a natural glow!
6. Wipe It All Off
Finally, no beauty regimen is complete without a way to cleanse your face at the end of the day. When you’re ready to remove your make-up, reach for a homemade solution that will gently wipe away your eyeliner, mascara, blush and more. You just need the right combination of coconut oil and castile soap to do it.
Fortunately, these are only a few of the many options when it comes to natural beauty products and skin care. Try as many as you can until you find your perfect combination of products. Then, get ready, set, glow: you’ll be looking and feeling healthier than ever before.
