Every single person on this planet is beautiful in their own way, including you, whether you see it or not. However, there are some simple things that you can do to enhance this beauty if you’re feeling a bit down about your appearance. I’m not talking makeup, although there’s nothing wrong with wearing it, I’m talking natural beauty. Just follow these simple steps, and you’ll be feeling great about yourself in no time.


Drink Plenty Of Water
I know, I know, you hear this all the time right? But the reason that you do is that it really does help. The body uses water to get rid of toxins and cleanse itself; If it can’t do that, these toxins will affect your skin and make acne flair up. If you don’t drink enough water, you will get dehydrated too, and it’s very hard to feel good about yourself when you feel sick and have a massive headache. Make sure you drink water all day (a minimum of 1.6 litres for women and 2 litres for men) rather than chugging it before bedtime, to allow it to absorb properly into your body.


Get Enough Sleep
Beauty sleep” as silly as it may seem, really is a thing. When you sleep, your cells can renew themselves, if they can’t do this because you’re not sleeping enough, your skin will age faster. You will also get dark circles and puffiness under your eyes, as well as dry skin and wrinkles. This is because they are all controlled by your hydration levels which are regulated while you are in a deep sleep. You should know by now, that if you don’t get enough sleep you wake up in the morning looking and feeling the opposite of fantastic, so you have to make sure that you get enough rest. If you’re having some trouble sleeping, try cutting out caffeine before bedtime, adding some essential oils to your bath, or sleeping with lavender under your pillow.


Sort Your Skin Care Routine
Your skin is incredibly important when it comes to enhancing your natural beauty, so you have to care for it properly. Ensure you exfoliate to remove dead skin cells, use a fragrance-free and oil-free face wash, and remember to moisturize. If you do suffer a breakout, there are plenty of acne tackling treatments on the market for you to try, such as spot on treatments or face washes. Differin is a gel used in acne treatment and can be applied all over the face to tackle general acne. Like most acnes treatments, it can take a few weeks to notice a difference, so just stick with it, and don’t give up.


Eat Healthily
Don’t roll you eyes, I know you’ve heard it all before, but there is a reason for that. Fruits and vegetables contain plenty of nutrients that help to give your skin a natural, healthy glow. Eating plenty of protein is also beneficial for improving the appearance of your hair and nails too. This is because the key structural component of hair and nails is keratin, a protein. It would also be a sensible idea to ditch the smoking habit and the excess caffeine consumption. There is absolutely no use in drinking plenty of water and eating healthily to improve your skin’s natural glow and elasticity if you are simply going to pump more toxins and chemicals into your body and reverse these effects. I know it will be hard, but there are plenty of ways to kick your caffeine addiction, and a lot of treatments out there to help with your smoking too.


Exercise
You knew it was coming; Exercise is important too. Not only does exercise help to burn calories and therefore fat, which can make you look and feel great, sweating itself helps too. When you are exercising, and you start to sweat, that sweat isn’t just there to keep you cool. It also removes excess water and toxins along with it. The more different ways you have toxins being removed from your body, the better you’ll feel, trust me. Because of this, head down to the gym and find a personal trainer, or even find or invent your own workout routine, and start sweating out your toxins. You’ll thank me later.


Granted, some of these tips are a little more time consuming than others, and some do require a lot of effort and willpower on your part, but it will all be worth it in the end. Everyone wants to be able to look into a mirror and really love what they see, and with these simple tips, you are one step closer to reaching that goal.
