When it comes to being beautiful, there are some small steps we can take to stay on top of our game. And no, it doesn’t involve expensive cosmetics or procedures. It’s all natural, simple and easy for anyone to try. It takes a lot of trial and error to come across these tricks, but who is the first person you would want to tell? Your best friend, of course!
Here are 5 simple beauty hacks shared by our Skinderellas you must share with your BFF:
1. “Minimal makeup. Exercising and yoga.” – Arushi Tariyal
Try to keep your make-up as basic as possible. Even if you do want to go all out, ensure that it’s completely off before you hit the sack. Left-over makeup can cause dirt to accumulate and cause pimples. Any form of exercise works amazingly to keep your body and skin healthy, as Arushi suggested. Try yoga to keep your mind, body and soul refreshed.
2. “Drink lots of water. Smile, and automatically life will become beautiful.” – Anushka Sharma
“Wake up early in the morning, do yoga and drink at least 2 glasses of water for natural beauty and glory.” – Khushboo Malhotra
Hydration is key to looking beautiful and staying beautiful. Drink at least 2 glasses of water every hour! It cleanses your system and keeps your skin fresh. You tend to feel good too! Another secret to a beautiful face is a big smile. It warms up the atmosphere and makes everyone around you feel amazing. Another beauty essential is to get good sleep and wake up early in the morning as suggested by Khushboo.
3. “Aloe Vera gel gives you the best skin.” – Lavina Khanchandani
Lavina is right! This healing plant has innumerable benefits on your skin. It moisturizes, soothes sunburns, fights aging, and reduces acne and infection among many other things. It consists of Vitamin C & Vitamin E which is extremely healthy for all types of skin.
4. “Every night before going to bed, apply coconut oil and when you get up in the morning, lightly scrub your face with dried orange peel powder” – Manisha Rautela
Coconut oil is a magical elixir that heals your skin in many ways. It keeps your skin supple and gets into the deeper layers of your skin to moisturize it internally. It hasanti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. A lesser known use of coconut oil on the skin is that it removes make-up. Try this and your day will be made!
The second part of Manisha’s suggestion is exfoliation. Which is also very essential for keeping your skin healthy. Try natural exfoliators like orange peel powder or very simply – sugar. Mixing sugar with a moisturizing agent like honey or curd and exfoliating your face helps remove dead skin while keeping your skin soft and supple. This small step truly works wonders!
So here we’ve got some simple hacks that you should try and tell your bestie about ASAP.
