12 Ways to Look Naturally Beautiful

    Tip 1
    Natural Skin Cleanser

    Pulverize a fresh tomato and mix it with two tablespoons of milk. Apply the mixture on the face and leave it on for about ten minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water.

    Besides being nature's own exfoliating agent, this blend is also a deep skin cleanser which helps remove oiliness and brings a fresh and vibrant glow on your face.

    Juicy Treatment

    Pineapple juice, apple juice and lemon juice are all great remedies when applied to the skin for preventing wrinkles. Make a mixture of a tablespoon each of the freshly extracted juice of all three; apply on the face and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. The mild bleaching and astringent properties in these juices will keep your face glowing.

    Tip 3
    Egg on the face

    If you have oily skin, apply the white of one egg on the face. If you have dry skin take only the egg yolk, whip it up and apply. Keep the mixture on the face for around 15 minutes and then rinse. Both egg white and yolk narrow the pores of the skin thus preventing wrinkling. And if wrinkles are already there, they shrink and minimise them.

    The pink glow

    Here's a secret not many 'beauty experts' will tell you. Put a high stool at the edge of your bed (it should be higher than the bed) and place your legs on top of the stool so that they are elevated from the body. Hold this position for some minutes, as long as your body can hold it. This helps drain fluids and rush the blood to the upper half of the body giving your neck and face an instant pink glow to last the evening.

    Beauty fruits

    This is a very popular treatment at most leading spas. Mash a tablespoon of fresh papaya and add to it the pulp of a tablespoon of green grapes. Squeeze a lemon and mix to make a smooth paste. Apply on the face and leave for 15 to 20 minutes. This has a tightening effect when it dries out and can be easily washed off. Rinse thoroughly for a radiant look.

    Tip 6
    Creamy complexion

    If you need an instant flush on your face, and you do not want to rush to a beauty parlour. Take some fresh cream (malai) and massage your face with an upward circular movement. Besides softening the skin it will make it moist and banish dryness. A massage stimulates facial blood circulation as well as removes dead cells, giving it a creamy complexion

    Repeat six times on each side alternately.

    Tip 7
    Eat right

    No amount of natural beauty aids will help if you don't follow a healthy diet plan. Medical research has proved that there are certain foods that can impact the colour of your skin. A healthy diet rich in whole foods, fruits and vegetables will provide the skin with most of the antioxidants, vitamins, essential fatty acids and minerals it needs to be radiant.

    Hair conditioner

    For silken hair, rub in a paste of banana, cucumber, tomato and curd an hour before bath. This is a natural conditioner and once you have rinsed and shampooed you will notice the big difference. Your hair will not just look shiny and silken but will bristle with life and complement the glow on your skin.

    Banishing blackheads

    Blackheads can be the bane of any skin and they are best eliminated. The most natural way to banish blackheads is to make a paste of one tablespoon of curd and one teaspoon of crushed black pepper. Apply the paste and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly for removal of blackheads.

    Tip 10
    Perky eyes

    Eyes are as much a part of beauty as the face and hair. Soothe tired eyes by gently applying cucumber slices on closed eyelids. Keep the cucumber in the freezer for an hour then cut two thick slices and put them one on each eyelid for about half an hour. This will make your eyes perk up instantly.

    Tip 11
    Exercise, exercise, exercise!

    Nothing in the world can give you a better skin than regular workouts. The medical reason for this is simple. When you do aerobics, you work up a sweat which helps clear up pores and clean the skin of blackheads and acne. Exercising also improves the blood circulation and provides cells with nutrients so vital for that healthy flush.

    Tip 12
    Sleep tight

    There is a direct connection between sound sleep and a glowing skin. A restful sleep of seven to eight hours is important as it greatly relaxes face muscles. Moreover, skin cells tend to regenerate twice as fast when you are sleeping. For best results, it is imperative to have a regular sleep cycle.
