Many beauty treatments and products are designed to change our appearance or hide features that might be seen as ‘flaws’. A much more positive way of approaching beauty is to think about ways of showing off our best natural features. Below we list a few ways in how to accentuate your natural beauty effortlessly.
EMBRACE YOUR NATURAL HAIR
Dying, curling and straightening our hair can damage it over time, plus it’s a lot of effort. By embracing your natural hair, you could reduce the maintenance required and prolong hair thinning/hair loss. Every type of hair can be beautiful if you know how to look after it. You also shouldn’t feel as if you’re limited to one style – there are likely to be many hairstyles that you can try out without having to use heat or chemicals.
GO NUDE WITH MAKEUP
Nude makeup tones are those that match your natural skin colour at its rosiest (i.e. no attempts to lighten the skin or imitate a tan). From nude blush to nude lipstick, there are all kinds of options out there. Finding the right tones to match your skin can be difficult – it’s often worth visiting a makeup store and experimenting with makeup tones (there are also bespoke beauty services out there that can help you find the precise tones and products to fit your skin and budget).
WEAR COLOURS THAT COMPLIMENT YOUR SKIN, HAIR + EYES
You can use clothing accessories, jewellery and other items to bring out colours within your natural appearance. This guide at What To Wear discusses a few tips on what to wear to help your natural eye colour pop (for instance, deep pinks and blues can be used to bring out blue eyes). Colours can simply be paired with the skin or hair.
EXFOLIATE YOUR SKIN
Exfoliation helps to remove the dead layer on top of your skin. This helps the fresh skin below to shine through, bringing out your natural glow. This can be a simple way of emphasising and to accentuate your natural beauty.
GO EASY ON COSMETIC PROCEDURES
Most cosmetic procedures are designed to drastically alter one’s appearance or fix blemishes. Invest in too many of these cosmetic procedures and you could lose touch with your natural self. Of course, certain cosmetic treatments may have health benefits too, in which case they can be worthwhile. For instance, teeth realignment offered by dental services such as FY smile could help to not just straighten your teeth but make brushing easier. Purely cosmetic procedures can make some people feel more self-confident and you may find that they are the right decision for you, but they’re not the way to go if you’re trying to embrace your natural beauty.
LIVE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
A healthy lifestyle can do wonders for your accentuate your natural beauty. Getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, doing enough exercise and refraining from bad habits such as smoking will all help to make your skin naturally rosier.
