Pūr. SIMPLE. BEAUTY.
As we all know, medical treatments are often needed to improve many aging and skin conditions, however a balance between medical and natural products and services is the best approach to simply radiant skin. Plus, protecting the future of our planet through green practices not only helps you reach your most healthy self, but helps our environment do the same!
Here are some natural at home beauty tips:
1) Drink Water:
About 15% of our skin is made up of water. Of course there are many health benefits to drinking water, but one of the best is to help your skin to purify impurities. Water cleanses the body while eliminating toxins and waste. It hydrates the skin and removes excess oils and dirt. Water should be an essential part in any skincare tip or remedy.
2) Avoid the Sun:
The sun is a great source for vitamin D. However, years of getting too much sun can lead to early wrinkling and age spots, and makes you more susceptible to skin cancers. Sunscreen protects your skin against the sun’s ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB). UVA causes most aging and wrinkles and contributes to skin cancer. UVB mostly causes sunburns and skin cancer.
3) Simple Honey Face Mask:
Raw honey is a natural anti-bacterial and is an easy way to get silky, smooth skin. Honey is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the air and locks it into the skin creating long-lasting hydration. Also, using honey masks for acne treatment is a very popular home remedy due to its ability to fight bacteria that causes breakouts. It’s a great natural alternative if you are serious about treating acne without using medical approaches.
4. Green Tea:
Green tea is rich in polyphenols, which are a type of antioxidant. Antioxidants reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, and thereby halting environmental damage to the skin. Scientific studies suggest green tea polyphenols have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties that may help prevent the development and growth of skin cancers.
5. Coconut oil body scrub:
Coconut oil is perhaps the most versatile natural beauty product. Packed with vitamin E and fatty acids, it is an anti-fungal and anti-bacterial super-oil that can be used for everything from dry hair and skin to athlete’s foot. If you have sensitive skin and can’t tolerate most body washes and scrubs, use coconut oil as a homemade body scrub that is as easy on your skin.
Remember, the best medical and natural beauty tips are not quick fixes. A combination of both medical and holistic remedies that is customized to your skin tone and skin care needs is the best way to keep your skin looking and feeling radiant. While all these tips above can provide great benefits to your beauty routine, remember that real beauty is a result of taking care your body, inside and out, on a daily basis.
