Natural Beauty: Tips To Look Your Best Without Going Overboard


Looking fabulous does not necessarily entail slathering on thick layers of makeup. In fact, learning to utilize natural beauty enhancement methods is the best way that women of all ages can maximize their appearance. If you are interested in learning this, consider these tips:

Enhance Your Lips

If you want a kissable smile, consider using a bit of coconut oil on them instead of lipstick. This all natural oil is very soft and will blend smoothly into your skin. Add a drop of vitamin E to the center for an extra shine.

Treatment for Dry Hair and Split Ends

For hair that has lost luster, you can make an all natural treatment using one banana and one egg. Mash the banana thoroughly and then blend in the egg. If you have long hair, you can double the recipe. Massage the mixture thoroughly into your hair, cover and leave on for half an hour. Then, wash and condition as usual. Your hair will have a luxurious new shine.

Make Your Skin Glow

In a small bowl, mix two tablespoons honey with one tablespoon brown sugar and one tablespoon ground oatmeal. Massage the mixture into your skin and neck. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. The honey attracts moisture to your skin while the other two ingredients will provide a gentle exfoliation.

Firm Your Neck and Jawline

Many women think about their face, neglecting the importance of having an attractive neck and jawline. In order to keep this part of your body from sagging, perform this exercise several times each day: Tilt your head toward the ceiling. Then, pucker your lips and pretend to reach up to kiss the ceiling. Repeat five or six times.

Drink Plenty of Water
