Women almost always have makeup on because they want to look good. However, they sometimes want to have makeup-free days and still look good. Going without makeup when you’re used to wearing it every day might be a little unnerving and can take some time to get used to. For days like those, it’s a good idea to start investing time in taking care of your skin every day.
Here are 8 simple tips you can follow to look good without makeup.
Tips That’ll Help You Look Great Even Without Makeup
1. Drink Enough Water
Start by simply drinking enough water every day. The recommended intake is about 2 liters, or 8 glasses, per day. This hydrates your skin cells and makes your skin look radiant. Drinking water also helps in getting rid of any toxins in your body, reducing breakouts and acne. A cup of hot water with lemon first thing in the morning is also great
2. Get Enough Sleep
It’s important that you get your beauty sleep and more so if you intend on looking good without makeup. Try and get 8 hours of sleep every day. This will give your skin a chance to repair itself well and make you look and feel great the next day.
3. Eat Healthy
Eating the right kind of food is essential to keep your skin healthy. Avoid eating oily and sugary foods as much as possible. Choose healthier alternatives like fruits, vegetables, and grains instead. Many of these foods contain antioxidants that prevent skin damage and hence the occurrence of wrinkles. Green tea also has antiaging benefits.
Exercising not only makes you feel great, it also makes you look fantastic. It increases blood circulation throughout your body, which increases oxygen supply to your skin cells. The blood being circulated gets rid of any cellular debris in your body. Cardio exercise like running, brisk walking, or jogging or even yoga can work wonders for your skin and make you look great.
5. Don’t Keep Touching Your Face
If you have spots or pimples on your face, don’t pick on them or touch them. This will leave scars that you will want to cover with makeup. Even just touching your face constantly results in the growth of bacteria, which causes your face to break out. So, consciously make an effort not to keep touching your face.
6. Wash Your Face
7. Moisturize And Tone Your Skin
Follow up washing your skin with moisturizing it. Use a good moisturizer that suits your skin type. Try getting one with SPF 30 or more in it, so you can prevent skin damage caused by the sun. That way, your moisturizer also works as a sunscreen. Moisturizing helps relieve dryness and itching and keeps your skin supple. You could also use a toner that doesn’t contain alcohol (alcohol tends to dry skin) to hydrate and nourish your skin further and restore its
8. Exfoliate Your Skin
Scrub your skin with a good exfoliant. Exfoliating your skin unclogs your pores and gets rid of dead skin cells, leaving you with smooth, radiant skin. It also gets rid of unwanted bacteria, preventing acne and pimples. If you have sensitive skin, exfoliating once a week will suffice; if you have normal or combination skin, exfoliate twice or thrice a week. However, don’t scrub your face too often because that will cause irritation and inflammation.
- Getting a hair cut every few months helps prevent split ends and hair damage.
- Be confident about the way you look even if it’s without makeup; makeup only enhances your existing features. Also, remember to smile and let your inner beauty shine through.
- Dress well and wear clothes you’re comfortable in; don’t try squeezing into tight fitting clothes.
