As a preteen, you might be dying to wear some of your mother’s makeup. But there are plenty of ways to look your best without using expensive beauty supplies. Try some of these simple all-natural beauty tips that you can do on your own!
A proper diet is one of the most important ways to look your best. Eating foods rich in vitamin A are great for keeping your skin looking young and healthy. Also try eating strawberries, blueberries and plums. They have plenty of antioxidants that make your skin stronger so it can protect itself against aging and harmful UV rays. You can also eat plenty of beans and nuts such as walnuts and pecans, and fresh salmon for the same effect. Having a healthy, balanced diet is the most significant way to look and feel your best!
Proper Skin Care
Give your face an extra reason to shine! For a natural approach, you can exfoliate your skin with lots of homemade remedies. Try cutting fresh grapes in half and rubbing the insides on your face. The natural sugars and acids are great for restoring your skin. You can also put slices of cucumbers over your eyes for fifteen minutes at a time. They get rid of redness and unwanted puffiness
Make Time to Exercise
Stay active to keep your body in great shape. Playing team sports with your friends is the perfect way to get regular amounts of exercise. It’s loads of fun and you’ll make plenty of new friends along the way. You can also go for a walk or run, explore the outdoors with your neighborhood pals, or go for a swim. Don’t sit inside all day. Get outside and play hard! Leading an active lifestyle will help you feel and perform your best now, and as you get older.
A Good Night's Sleep
After a long day, you need to get your beauty sleep. At night, your skin needs time to renew itself. Make sure you get anywhere from eight to ten hours of sleep each night so you can wake up with smooth, glowing skin. It’s the secret to natural beauty, especially during those preteen years. Drinking a couple glasses of natural tart cherry juice will also help ensure you get a good night’s sleep. It has a special ingredient called melatonin that promotes a deeper sleep that’s more refreshing.
Bust Out the Chapstick
Using chapstick is a great way to keep your lips looking great and feeling smooth. Skip the store bought brands and make it yourself! Combine coconut oil, olive oil, natural beeswax and a bit of flavor such as mint or lemon. Heat up the ingredients in a microwave and let it cool overnight. It’s just that easy!
It's All About the Hair
Skip the expensive hair products and try styling your hair with your own natural recipe. You can use avocado for taming frizzy hair. Mash it up in a bowl and run it through you hair when it’s damp. Then wash it off thoroughly. You can also use a cup of mayonnaise for a silky, smooth look. Just like the avocado, run it through your hair and wash it off. As always, it’s easy and all natural!
