Wearing makeup is fun and can make you feel gorgeous, but you can be beautiful without it. Practice these 10 simple and natural beauty tips that will make you glow without any makeup and save the cosmetics for special occasions.

Use the Right Cleanser for Your Type of Skin

Taking care of your skin is incredibly important if you want to go all-natural. Wearing foundation every day is terrible for your skin because it clogs pores and makes you break out, leading you to put on even more foundation. It's a vicious cycle that can only be broken by avoiding foundation and taking care of your skin. The first step to taking care of you face is finding the right type of cleanser. Figure out your skin type and find a cleanser that washes away the dirt and excess oils without drying your face out or making it even more oily. Cleanse your face in the morning and in the evening.

Exfoliate Every 2-3 Days

Exfoliating is a great way to remove excess oils, clean out pores, and clear away dead skin cells. It will leave your skin feeling soft and looking super healthy. You can exfoliate every 2-3 days, but no more than that. Exfoliating too often can dry out your skin by pulling away all of the natural oils your skin produces each day.

Moisturize Every Day

Just as you need to find the right cleanser for your skin, you also need to find the right moisturizer. If you have oily skin, use a light moisturizer that will leave your skin feeling soft and not greasy. I love using a moisturizer with tea tree oil because the tea tree helps to pull out some of the excess oil leaving my skin feeling perfectly soft. If you have dry skin, find a heavier moisturizer that gives your skin the extra moisture that it needs to feel and look great. You should moisturize your skin at least every night. If you have dry skin, you should also moisturize in the mornings.

Take Care of Your Teeth

Your smile may be the first thing people notice about you. A bright and beautiful smile can make anyone glow, so make sure you take care of your pearly whites. You can use charcoal to help whiten your teeth and get rid of stains or go to the dentist for a professional whitening.

Always Wash Away Makeup Each Night

No matter what makeup you wear, it's incredibly important that you always wash it away before going to bed. Leaving makeup on overnight can lead to clogged pores, acne breakouts, wrinkles, and make your skin look unhealthy. If you don't want to spend the time doing a full face wash every night, get some micellar water that attracts dirt and oil and apply it to your skin with a cotton pad. This will remove your makeup in one minute without having to do anything else.

Protect Your Skin

Protecting your skin from the sun is super important if you want to avoid unhealthy skin and early wrinkles. You should always wear sunscreen on your face when you go outside, even if it's cloudy out. You can find great, gentle face moisturizers that have SPF in them to help protect your skin from the sun and keep it healthy for the years to come.

Use All-Natural Hair Products

Most shampoos and conditioners are full of harmful chemicals that are terrible for your hair. These chemicals dry out the natural oils in your hair, leading to dead ends and frizziness. There are some great, all-natural hair care options you can find. Your hair will look and feel more healthy and you won't be absorbing any harmful chemicals anymore. You can also use all-natural hair masks to help damaged hair recover and give your hair the healthy oils that it needs to shine and feel soft again.

Groom Your Brows

Your eyebrows shape your whole face, which is why it's important to keep them well-groomed at all times. This doesn't mean you need to apply makeup. You just need to brush them, shape them, and apply the gel. This will train your eyebrows and keep any stray hairs from sticking out of the eyebrow curve. Try not to overdo your brows as this can make them look worse and unnatural. Work with what you have and take care of them each day. It will make a big difference in your appearance without having to use any makeup.

Practice Self-Care Every Day

Stress can lead to wrinkles and unhealthy-looking skin. It can cause bad acne breakouts that will only go away when your stress dissipates. Reduce your daily stress by practicing self-care each day. You can meditate for 20 minutes, do a session of yoga, workout, or anything else that grounds you and releases stress. It may not seem like these things are related to skin beauty, but when you see how different you look and feel from reducing stress, you'll be convinced.

Drink Plenty of Water

Drinking water is important for our overall health. In fact, being dehydrated can cause problems in all aspects of health including digestion, energy level, and skin health. When you start drinking at least 8 cups of water each day, you'll be shocked to see how much of a positive impact it has on your overall health and how you look and feel. Try to replace other beverages like soda and sugary juices with water to keep up your water intake. I usually only allow myself one caffeinated beverage per day (coffee or green tea) and the rest of the day I only drink water.

Life was like that sometimes:

Like a thick sheet of rain

Over your car's windshield.

The world clear, but blurred

Beyond recognition.


The thing that you want most

So close, yet so unclear

You walk the slick pavement

Slipping, sliding, tripping

Into uncertainty.


Rain drops fragment the glass

A mixed-up mosaic

Of a landscape once-known

Is it you who's differ'nt?

Or is it I who changed?


I walk the water-logg'd

Path back to the only

Roadway I know by heart.

I slam the door and drive.

I drive t'you every time.

Change can make you feel more confident and give your life the rush of adventure you may need. Here are 10 ways to change your look so you can completely reinvent yourself and start fresh.

Get a Bold, New Haircut

The easiest (and most popular) way to change your appearance is by getting a haircut. That doesn't mean trimming a couple of inches off the ends. It means completely changing your hairstyle. There are so many directions you can go with this type of change. You can go from having super long hair to chopping it all off and rocking a bob cut. You could get bangs for the first time. You could shorten your hair and get layers. The possibilities are endless. Just make sure you've thought this one through and you're not chopping your hair off based on an impulse.

Start (or Stop) Wearing Glasses

Buy New, Different Styles Clothing

Your clothing says a lot about who you are. If you wear blazers and business suits people see you as a professional. If you wear long, flowy skirts people might see you as boho. If you wear leather jackets, you could have a more grunge look to you. No matter how you dress now, you can completely change your look and reinvent yourself by trying a new style of clothing.

Stop Wearing Makeup All-Together

If you want to go all-natural, you could stop wearing makeup all-together, or only wear it on special occasions. This is a huge change, especially if you would wear a lot of makeup every day. Not wearing makeup will help you feel confident in your natural appearance and will also be great for your skin because it'll be able to breathe more throughout the day.

Whiten Your Teeth

This might seem like such a simple, small change, but it can make a huge difference. Your smile if often one of the first things people will notice about you when they meet you. If you don't feel confident in your smile or your teeth, you could really benefit from getting your teeth whitened. This will make you feel more comfortable smiling, which totally brightens your entire appearance.

Dye Your Hair

Just as getting a bold haircut can be a huge change in appearance, so is dying your hair. This is one of (if not the most) popular ways to change an appearance. If you have light hair, you could dye it dark or go for a super bold color. If you've had dark hair your whole life, you can add some blonde to your hair to completely change your look. The choices are endless when it comes to dying your hair, so make sure you do your due diligence before deciding on a color.

Wear Different Accessories

Accessories may seem like such a small part of an outfit, but they can really change your whole vibe. If you never used to wear accessories, simply adding some jewelry a watch, a hat, or bold sunglasses can give you an entirely new look without changing your style overall. You can use accessories to switch up your current wardrobe and give it a fresh new feeling without breaking the bank on new clothes.

Get in Shape

This is the most difficult and time-consuming tip on this blog. Getting fit requires dedication and hard work. If you're willing to put in the time and effort, you can start to feel and look healthier than ever. Getting fit will give you an increase in confidence that some of the other tips can't do. This is because you are making yourself healthy by working hard, which makes you feel really great about yourself.

Be Confident in Yourself

Once you've made changes to your appearance, it's important to be confident in yourself. The difference between two identical people (one confident, one not) is huge. Confidence really pulls a new look together and will make you feel great about the reinvented person you've become.
