We’ve all heard the saying that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. But is this saying really true? Or is it just an urban legend or lurid anecdote passed down from your grandmother about that one naturally-beautiful cousin who should have been a model?

Well, the truth is that you really don’t need to spend loads of time or tons of money to feel good about yourself. That’s right, you can literally let go of your hour’s long beauty regime and still look and feel beautiful.

Have you ever even considered how to look beautiful naturally? Sure, makeup is great and can be super fun. But natural beauty is key, too. Let’s unlock it!


How To Look Beautiful Naturally!

Here are five easy ways that you can look beautiful naturally that won’t cost you a thing.

1. Ditch The Junk Food

The first secret to having clear and healthy skin is to eat clean and healthy whole foods. You literally are what you eat.

If you treat your body well by filling it up with healthy items like lots of veggies and fruits, as well as foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation and increase the natural hydration of our skin, then you will not only feel good, but you’ll look good too.

Being more aware of what you’re putting into your body is a key to looking beautiful naturally.

2. Water, Water Everywhere

Before you roll your eyes, you probably do need to drink more water. This is especially true if you also love fruit juices, soda, coffee, tea or energy drinks, which can cause dehydration and flaky skin.

You need to drink pure water to maintain healthier-looking skin (and ditch the soda and fruit juice, as mentioned in #1).

This is because just like a good diet that supports your insides, the amount of fluid you have in your body will minimize wrinkles and help your skin’s elasticity.

Drinking water also helps to flush toxins out of your body, which will improve not only your health, but will also keep your skin looking beautiful naturally.

So, you can say bye-bye to pimples and acne, and hello to a more glowing and youthful face.

3. Sleeping Beauty

It’s not called beauty sleep for nothing! Getting enough sleep is not only the best way of keeping puffy eyes and dark circles at bay, but it’s one of the easiest things you can do to look beautiful naturally.

A good night’s slumber is nature’s way of repairing and recharging your body. It also gives your skin an anti-inflammatory treatment. Your body makes cytokines while you sleep, which are proteins that help with the growth of red blood cells and support the immune system to respond to disease.

Using a silk pillow  will also help to keep your skin from wrinkling while you’re enjoying that sleep.

4. The Shape Of Things

A good eyebrow pluck will help to frame your face to make it a natural beauty picture. Your natural eyebrow shape will enhance what you already have.

Sure, eyebrow pencils are great. But starting with perfectly-shaped brows is key, particularly if they’re a bit uneven!

Natural-looking and perfectly groomed eyebrows will give your face a more polished and fresher look in minutes.

So get those tweezers out in order to look beautiful naturally.

5. Show The World That Smile

It goes without saying that you should always brush and floss to maintain clean and healthy teeth. You might even be a fan of teeth whitening to boost your pearly whites.

But when was the last time you actually showed off that smile of yours?

Not only will smiling elevate your mood, but smiling is contagious. Just think of laughing baby videos or a barrel of puppies. Did that make you smile?

Smiling also relieves stress, can lower your blood pressure, and can boost your immune system. It also uses less energy than frowning.

So when you show off your amazing smile and use it to light up every room you walk in, then you can flaunt the natural beauty you were born with, which will also make you more attractive.

Wait What, No Makeup?

Makeup should be a fun way to enhance your features and get creative with your face. But it shouldn’t be mandatory to leave your house with it on!

It’s probably a good idea to give your skin a break by giving your regime a rest.

Your skin will thank you when you decide to give it a little detox.

This is because most popular makeup brands use harsh chemicals like parabens, dyes, mineral oils, and fragrances. These can cause skin reactions and allergies, and can damage the skin in the long run.

Not to mention the damage they also do to the planet. And all the cruelty issues

For instance, contact dermatitis, which can appear on your face, eyes, lips, neck and chest, is a skin allergy that can cause itching, rashes and swelling.

And it affects many more makeup users than you think.

Even your favorite cosmetics and skincare products that you’ve used for years can cause your skin to develop contact dermatitis.

Natural Beauty Brands

And if you really can’t bear the thought of leaving the house without your face on, these days there are many more natural and sustainable beauty brands that are better for the environment and free of fragrances, dyes, etc.

You can use them without causing more damage to your naturally beautiful skin.

Confidence: You’ve Got The Key

And remember as we said at the start, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

If you have low self-esteem or put yourself or your looks down all the time, then you will never feel beautiful. No matter how much money you spend on your foundation.

So, if you choose to be your own beholder and see yourself as beautiful, then your confidence will be bomb AF and nobody else’s opinion will stop you from thinking so.

Like everything, it might take practice to do this, but in the end, this is the real key to looking beautiful naturally — your confidence.
