10 Natural Beauty Tips

There are a lot of products on the market for all kinds of beauty routines. Most of these products are very expensive. Here is a list of 10 effective natural beauty tips for you to try. They are extremely inexpensive and easy to use.

1. Teeth whitener

Almost everyone wishes that they can have that fresh-from-the-dentist look every day so, here is an inexpensive and easy natural solution. Forget all those freaky cleaning tools dentists use on your teeth. All you need is dental floss and baking soda. WARNING: Only do this once a month. It’s very hard on the enamel, but a very effective natural whitener. Here’s what to do:

Brush and rinse as usual. Rub baking soda between your top teeth. Use the dental floss to help spread the baking soda between your teeth – be sure to get into the gum line a bit. Rub the baking soda on the flats of your teeth. Do the same on the bottom. Brush your teeth and rinse again. Shade your eyes and smile!

2. Face mask

This is an incredible mask to make your skin as soft as a baby’s bottom!

1/2 cup powdered oats (powder in a blender)
2 tbsp honey
1 squished gel-cap of vitamin E
1 teaspoon sunflower, or any other liquid oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract DON’T use if your skin is irritated!

Mix all ingredients together. Add water to make a paste. Warm skin and open pores with warm compresses. Apply mixture to skin and leave on for 10 minutes or more. Rinse. Rub a tiny bit of liquid vegetable oil on normally dry areas.

3. Pimple Relief

This tip is if you have a big pimple, or even a little one, and you want it gone quickly.

Hot compress, 10 minutes. Cool compress 10 minutes.
Do another hot compress. If the pimple came to a head, gently (KEYWORD: GENTLY) push it out. If you tried and it didn’t come out, do one more hot compress, one more cold compress to take the swelling back down.

If the pimple is way down: do the hot/cold again the next night.

If the pimple is near the surface: before you go to bed, mix a bit of baking soda with a little water to make a paste. Put a dab of that mixture on the pimple and put a band-aid on it to hold the baking soda on the pimple. It should be a lot better in the morning. The baking soda does two things, it absorbs some of the oil from the pimple and kills bacteria. Do the hot/cold compresses again the next night and it should pop right out. If not, do the baking soda again.

4. Blackheads gone

The easiest, and least expensive, way to get rid of blackheads is naturally.

Use warm compresses to open the pores and soften the blackhead. Gently pop them out – they won’t scar. If they don’t pop out easily, do more compresses.

Wash well with natural soap. Wipe with witch hazel or lemon juice. Apply a cool compress to reduce redness.

5. Proper moisturiser

This moisturiser helps feed your cells and the results will last for days and days!

Use warm compresses to soften skin tissue and open your pores. Apply a good coating of any natural vegetable oil such as extra-virgin olive oil, sunflower oil or coconut oil. Re-heat your compress and lay it over your oiled skin for about 10 minutes. Wash over with luke-warm water. You will definitely see and feel the difference!

6. Cuticle* health *Incase you don’t know what that is, a cuticle is the skin that meets the root of  your fingernail/toenail.

1/2 tablespoon cooking oil
natural soap
toothpick

Remove nail polish (if you have any on). Wash hands in warm water with natural soap to clean and soften you cuticles. Dry hands. Rub a small amount of vegetable cooking oil on each fingernail. Be sure to get oil all around your fingernails. Use a toothpick to clean under your nails. Wash your hands again in warm water. Use a toothpick to rub the cuticle all around each fingernail. Enjoy your perfect cuticles!

7. Exfoliant

This is one of my favourite natural beauty tips!

vitamin E cream
caster sugar

Apply the vitamin E cream to you whole face but DON’T RUB IT IN. Take a small handful of caster sugar and rub it on your face. When the caster sugar starts to dissolve, wash all the exfoliant off your face in warm water. Gently pat your face dry using a towel and viola! You have perfectly smooth and younger looking skin!

TIP: Make sure that you rub in the caster sugar quickly because it dissolves fast.

8. Softer and smoother skin

Slice a few grapes in half and rub the cut sides over clean skin. The fruit acids are natural exfoliators so just go down to the supermarket and buy a few grapes! This is a really easy skin secret!

9. Pimple treatment

Use this only as needed. When you do get a pimple, you should let it heal on its own. However, there are times when you need the pimple gone now! This tip will help make it go away in a day or two.

Baking soda
Honey (preferred)
Lemon juice

After you wash your face at night, apply a bit of baking soda wet with water, honey (preferred) or lemon juice to the pimple in a tiny paste, enough to cover the pimple. put a band-aid on top. In the morning, it should be a lot less noticeable or even gone. If it swelled up worse, wash your face then use an ice cube to reduce the swelling. Do the treatment at night until the pimple is gone, only one or two nights. TIP: Keep the pimple area clean with witch hazel.

10. Relaxing bath blend

I love long, hot, relaxing baths. Here are a few things you can throw in your tub to make your bathe even better!

1 cup powdered oats
2 cups Dead Sea salt
1 cup Epsom salt
3 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons vegetable oil such as extra-virgin olive oil, sunflower oil or coconut oil.

Add to your hot bath water. Climb in with a book or magazine and enjoy!

I hope these beauty tips will help you in the future!
