Beauty industry is in its full swing over the past few decades, all applause to the advertisements and the perfect framed models, and has successfully created the image in our mind that to be beautiful we have to have a whole range of beauty products in our reach. Some of the most widely trusted and known beauty products are Lakme, Mabelline, Mac, Neutrogena and Cuticura. We are not saying that these products are harmful but we are implying that the results we desire from these products can also be obtained from natural means that without the fear of ruining your skin in case the product doesn’t suit you. Below are the 10 ways to substitute beauty products with natural ones.
The 10 Best Natural Substitute of Beauty Products:
1. Economically Smart
Now one of the main reasons to go natural is that the natural ways are far more economical than going out and buying the beauty products. Nowadays, it has become quite difficult to take out time from our busy schedules as well as extra money from our budget to get the required things for our beauty regime. The best option is? Go natural and find things from your kitchen to preserve your beauty and youth.
Exercising is not only important for your overall health but it is important for your beauty also; it can do wonders for our blood circulation, blood circulates throughout our system as we move our body. We all know that good blood circulation is essential to have healthy skin, hair and nails and exercise gives all the needed advantages to it. Moreover, as exercise keeps us in a moving and active state, it increases the lifeline of our youth and beauty.
Water is the most fundamental unit of our existence and survival as our body consists of nearly 75 to 80 percent of water while our body cells are also made up of water. Water flushes out all the impurities and toxins from our body, the task which cleansers and toners do. It balances the natural ph level of our skin and restores collagen that keeps skin young, supple and flexible.
4. Fresh Veggies
Hit the vegetables section of your store! Fresh vegetables must make a major part of your diet as they provide the body with all the vital vitamins and minerals that are important for your health. Dark green leafy vegetables are the best bet, they are full of iron, which sustains your blood cells, apart from greens carrots, cucumbers and beetroots are known for their magic effect on skin and hair.
Along with fresh vegetables, fresh fruits are also an important factor of your diet and your health and beauty regime so don’t refrain from filling your shopping basket with apples, grapes, berries, oranges, lemons and now as it is summer look for plums, apricots and peaches. The citrus fruits are filled with vitamin C important for your skin health and immunity.
6. Use the Peels
The best thing about the natural products like vegetables and fruits is that you can use their ‘covers’ also, which is not possible in case of creams and lotions. Peels of cucumbers, oranges, lemons, bananas and peaches are as useful as the fruit itself; cucumber peels are good for your skin’s collagen as they have loads of water while lemon peel is used in lightening your skin and getting rid of marks.
7. Search your Kitchen
Before buying company made products, it’s good that you look around in your kitchen carefully as there are some fair chances that you may find some of the useful ingredients into your kitchen. Ubtan is a famous Eastern beauty formula usually used for brides but is equally useful for everyone using it. You can make your homemade ubtan by mixing yogurt, a pinch of turmeric, few lemon drops and milk or water for making the paste, other homemade masks consists of bananas and orange peels in it.
8. Say NO to Sugar
Sugar is the basic part of our food and is one of the most commonly used product in our homes; it is used in making tea, coffee and yummy desserts and is also required by our body for survival and sustenance. But it is important to know that excessive use of sugar is harmful for both health and beauty; too much sugar causes weigh gain and early aging, which is, of course, unwanted so it is better to limit your sugar intake and don’t worry that where your body will have its sugar, fruits have enough of it.
9. Limit your Salt Intake
Besides sugar, salt is the second highest product consumed by the household, salt is the basic taste maker of food and is also the ‘basic’ health wrecker. Excessive use of salt causes bloating in body and it’s not a good thing if you are trying to lose weight. High blood pressure is also caused due to high consumption of salt; cut your salt ingestion by having salads and fruits without it. Remove salt from your dining table to avoid the temptation and try to have food with less salt in it.
10. Have some Activity
It is very important to have some activity in your life rather than spending all of your time on home making and kids. Choose some activity for yourself like gardening, stitching, embroidery or any other activity that you enjoy. You must spare some time for yourself too, explore your inner talents and enjoy them. It will play a significant role in keeping you active and happy and less worries means less wrinkles.
