15 Natural Skin Care Tips

Whether you're a newbie who's interested in learning more about all-natural beauty, or a seasoned veteran, these natural skincare tips contain information anyone with any skin type can use. You're sure to find some fresh information you'll want to share with your friends.

1. Sleep on Your Back to Reduce Wrinkles

Sleeping on your side or stomach presses your face into your pillow. This results in creases or premature wrinkles on each side of your face. Don't fight gravity: sleep on your back instead.

2.  Make Your Own Face and Body Scrubs

Use sugar, salt, or fine-ground coffee as a base for your very own custom scrubs. Those with dry skin should include nourishing oils like olive while people with oily skin can use jojoba. Add essential oils like mānuka, orange, lavender, and frankincense.

3. It's Called "Beauty Sleep" for a Reason

Make sure you get between six and eight hours each night. Without enough sleep, your skin will get saggy and you'll notice bags under your eyes. Enough sleep will keep your skin firm and bright.

4. Incorporate Antioxidants Into Every Meal

Antioxidants are important for keeping every function in your body running smoothly – including your skin. Fill your meals with these foods to ward off aging and embrace healthy skin.

  • Blueberries
  • Cranberries
  • Turmeric
  • Pecans
  • Dark chocolate
  • Cilantro
  • Kidney beans
  • Cinnamon
  • Bright peppers
  • Citrus fruits
  • Dark leafy greens

5. Give Yourself a Facelift with Yoga and Stretches

 This is one of the best natural skincare tips because it involves very little effort but produces big results. Throughout the day, tilt your head up and look at the ceiling. Open your mouth and stick out your tongue as far as possible. Hold for a few seconds or as long as you can. This will tone your neck and facial muscles.

6. Don't Neglect Your Workouts

Make sure to break a sweat! Exercise promotes proper blood circulation and helps the body flush out toxins. When you're active on a regular basis, everything just seems to run smoothly. With a high functioning immune system and metabolism, your skin will look amazing.

7. Hydration, Hydration, Hydration!

Don't underestimate the power of water. If drinking water feels like a chore, carry a water bottle around with you and slowly swap out your other beverages. Include water-heavy foods like pineapple, watermelon, and peppers in your meals.

8. Tame Red Skin or Puffiness with Tea Bags

Use chilled green or chamomile tea bags to reduce puffiness under your eyes, around your mouth, or due to acne.

9. Mānuka Oil: The Holy Grail of Natural Skin Care Tips

Mānuka oil has powerful antibacterial properties. This makes it an ideal essential oil for skin enhancement. When added to moisturiser it makes your skin smooth, supple, and bright.

10. Use Mineral Makeup for Boosted Sun Protection

Powdered mineral makeup contains zinc oxide which offers excellent sun protection. Mix tinted mineral makeup into your favourite foundation for instant UV coverage.

11. Keep Your Liver and Kidneys Clean

Persistent acne, dull skin, or clogged pores could be a sign your liver or kidneys aren't functioning their best because these are your body's detoxification and filtration systems. Eliminate sugar, high-cholesterol, high-fat, and high-sodium foods from your diet. (Sorry bacon lovers...)

12. Remove Makeup Every Night – Naturally

It's absolutely crucial to remove your makeup before going to bed each night – but everyone hates washing their face.

Mix 1 cup of witch hazel with a tablespoon of your favourite facial oil in a glass jar. Add about 20 drops of essential oils like lavender, frankincense, myrrh, and mānuka oil. Shake to mix like there's no tomorrow. Open the jar and add 15-20 large cotton rounds. Voila – instant makeup removal wipes.

13. Let It Go

If you're stressed out, so is your skin. Remove pressures from your life as much as possible and take time to meditate each day. Fill a diffuser with relaxing essential oils like mānuka, lavender, and vetiver.

14. Make a Custom Mask

You'll want to use this one every day because it smells AMAZING. Grind oatmeal into a powder with a blender. Add some Greek yogurt, honey, and turmeric to the powder until it becomes a paste-like consistency. Apply to your face while you take a relaxing bath. Rinse off after 20 or 30 minutes for bright skin.

15. Whip Up Some Boosted Ice Cubes

These are perfect for mornings when you feel (and look) less than great. Brew up some extra strong chamomile and green tea (yes, together) and pour into ice cube trays. Apply the frozen ice cubs to under-eye bags, acne, or any otherwise irritated skin.
