4 Natural ways to look good without Makeup

Makeup is a woman’s best friend. It exists to brighten your day, boost your ego, and make you feel confident on days when you otherwise choose to hide inside far from sight.
Without makeup, most women feel naked and vulnerable. With all the calling to be real and confidently beautiful, how can women look good without makeup naturally?
Here a list of tips from the experts and beauty gurus to archive how to look good naturally without makeup. Follow this rules

  • The Golden Rule

Every single time you wash your face, follow it up with a moisturiser and a sunscreen before you leave the house. “If you have marks on your skin, mix lacto calamine lotion with your sunscreen. Along with fading away blemishes, it also helps treat acne and dry skin”, suggests Dr. V. P. Kaushik, a Delhi-based Dermatologist. If you are prone to pimples, use a non-oily moisturiser and if you have dry skin, opt for heavier moisturisers containing coconut or shea butter

  • Exfoliation is the Key

“At least once a week, exfoliate to remove dead skin cells, leaving your face with that glow you’ve alwayswanted”, recommends Dr. Rahul Nagar, Dermatologist, Max Hospitals. Never scrub too hard, because it leaves the skin feeling irritated. If you don’t possess an exfoliator, just add granulated sugar to your cleanser and scrub gently to get smooth skin. It works wonder

  • Drink your morning cup of hot… water?

I love me a nice cup of tea to start the morning, but lately I have been making the switch to plain old hot water with lemon.

Yes, it sounds boring, but incorporating a cup of hot water and lemon is one of the best things you could do for yourself in the morning. Not only does it help to wake up your senses but it flushes and purifies your body of toxins, while also reducing your chance of future skin sensitivities.
Besides, water hydrates your body, which keeps your skin supple so you can rock that dewy glow… without having to apply highlighter to get the same effect.

  • Keep hands off.

We all catch ourselves doing it – resting your chin in your hand, popping pimples, rubbing your eyes or massaging your forehead. And you know what? It’s hurting your skin.
Since the skin on our face is the most delicate on our body, it is easily damaged, stretched, and torn.
Each time you rub your eyes. Each time you tug at your skin. Each time you rest of face on your hand. Each time you scratch your face or pick at your skin or pop pimples, you are causing micro-tears in your skin.
These micro-tears eventually lead to future wrinkles, and what’s more, they can also cause a gradual degradation of your skin.
Moral of the story?
Keep your hands off your face. Enough said.

    Herbal Remedies for Anxiety

    ​Every year, millions of prescriptions are written for anti-anxiety medications, making them some of the most commonly prescribed drugs. But these medications don’t always work, can’t be used by everyone, and have a multitude of unacceptable side effects (including being highly addictive).

    For reasons like these, more people are turning to natural remedies to control their anxiety instead. Natural, traditional remedies have long histories of safe and effective use. Science has shown that many of them work even better than anti-anxiety drugs.
    Herbal Remedies for Anxiety

    Plants parts — seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, and flowers — have been used medicinally by every culture.

    Archaeologists have found evidence that we’ve been using plants medicinally for at least 60,000 years!

    Eighty percent of the world’s population still rely on herbal remedies as part of their primary health care. These are our favorite herbal remedies for anxiety that have been proven both safe and effective

    • Chamomile

     Is used to calm nervousness, both in the mind and in the stomach. It can reduce digestive discomforts and improve appetite in those with a great deal of stress.It has also been linked to reducing headaches and improving liver and lung health. Most experts recommend that chamomile only be used as a temporary treatment, not a long term solution. Chamomile is also popular for anxiety in children.

    • FennelFennel 

    isn’t for anxiety specifically, but it is linked to treating some of the most common symptoms of anxiety, including digestion, coughing (many with anxiety have a nervous cough), and asthma (anxiety can exacerbate asthma symptoms). It may also act as an analgesic, diuretic, and antispasmodic – the latter being useful for some types of anxiety.

    5 Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

    Chia seeds (salvia hispanica) have become one of the most popular superfoods in the health community. They are easy to digest when prepared properly, and are a very versatile ingredient that adds easily to recipes.
    Originally grown in Mexico, the seeds were highly valued for their medicinal properties and nutritional value.
    Research has found that the chia seed benefits are even greater than we realized. Chia seed benefits include promoting healthy skin, reducing signs of aging, supporting the heart and digestive system, building stronger bones and muscles and more. Now they have even been linked to healing diabetes. 

    Being rich in so many key nutrients, research has uncovered that regularly eating chia seed can improve your health in numerous ways. Some of the top chia seed benefits are:

    1. Skin & Aging
    This past July, researchers from Mexico uncovered that chia seeds had a total natural phenolic (antioxidants) concentration nearly two times higher than previously reported, and the antioxidant activity was shown to stop up to 70% of free radical activity. (2)
    Essentially proving that chia seeds are one of nature’s riches antioxidants. Antioxidants speed up the skin’s repair systems, and prevent further damage. Taking chia seeds can prevent premature skin aging due to inflammation free radical damage.

    2. Digestive Health

    Chia is super-high in fiber, providing nearly 11 grams per ounce. One serving can provide the recommended fiber intake for the day, according to the American Dietetic Association. 
    Fiber is essential for your body’s ability to balance insulin levels.  According to the National Institute of Health, seeds like flax and chia can be a natural blood sugar balancer due to it’s fiber 

    3. Content and healthy fats.

    Being high in dietary fiber, chia helps promote bowel regularity and healthy stool. The rich fiber content in chia seeds also helps people feel more full quicker because it absorbs a considerable amount of water and immediately expands in the stomach when eaten. (3) This may explain why clinical studies have proven that chia curbs hunger and suppresses appetite, which can also lead to weight loss. (4)
    Also when consumed, chia seeds create a gelatin-like substance in the stomach.  This gel-forming action is due to the soluble fiber in chia seeds and it can work as a prebiotic supporting the growth of probiotics in the gut.
    4. Heart Health
    Chia seeds’ ability to reverse inflammation, regulate cholesterol and lower blood pressure make it extremely beneficial to consume for heart health. (5) Also, by reversing oxidative stress, someone is less likely to develop atherosclerosis when they’re regularly consuming chia seeds.
    Chia seeds are high in linoleic, a fatty acid which helps the body absorb fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.  For such a tiny seed, chia is quite high in healthy fats boasting more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. Omega-3s work to protect the heart by lowering blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and inflammation. Inflammation can put strain on blood vessels and cause heart disease. So by eating chia seeds you can boost and protect your heart thanks to the omega-3s!
    5. Fight Breast and Cervical Cancer

    Chia seeds are rich in alpha lineic acid (or ALA) which is an Omega-3 fatty acid. Recently in 2013, the Journal of Molecular Biochemistry found that ALA limited the growth of cancer cells in both breast and cervical cancers.

    They also found that it caused cell death of the cancer cells without harming the normal healthy cells.  While more research still needs to be done to find out the deeper implications of ALA on other types of cancer, this is a great discovery for women struggling with these increasingly common types of cancer.
    Occasionally some people may experience stomach discomfort when consuming chia seeds especially in large amounts due to the high fiber content. As with any food, eat in moderation and always drink plenty of water unless soaking your see.
    Chia is an amazing super food in other article I will tell you some recipes where you can include Chia seeds

    Baking Soda beauty uses

    ​There is one ingredient in nearly every kitchen cupboard that can do wonders for your hair, skin and body. This inexpensive, multitasking item is nothing but baking soda! In fact, baking soda can help you look your best from head to toe.

    Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, a natural substance that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. This alkaline substance has antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also a powerful medical tool effective at combating everything from colds to oral problems to skin issues.

    Baking soda is effective when used for short periods. However, excessive use can damage your skin and hair. Also, you should do a patch test to determine whether your skin is sensitive to it.

    Facial Exfoliator

    Ditch your conventional facial exfoliator with microbeads for a homemade baking soda version. Those tiny plastic pellets are wreaking havoc on the environment – with an estimated 19 tons of microbeads being discharged annually into New York’s waterways alone!

    Baking soda will help remove sebum and dead skin cells from the face and its antimicrobial properties will prevent skin infections – although it may be too harsh for very sensitive skin.

    For a thoroughly cleansing scrub, mix a tablespoon of baking soda with a few drops of water and some optional Vitamin E oil to form a paste. Massage onto the skin using circular motions, avoiding the sensitive eye area. After one to two minutes, rinse your skin with warm water followed by a cool rinse to close the pores, and pat dry.

    Follow up with your favorite natural moisturizer or a little virgin coconut oil.

    Dry Shampoo

    Dry shampoo is an amazingly useful product to have on hand. Apply it on those mornings you hit snooze one too many times, after a gym session, or to simply give your hair some added lift.

    Baking soda makes for a fantastic all-natural dry shampoo which really keeps the oiliness in check. Use it on its own, or mixed with a few drops of essential oil – like lavender, lemon or rose – for a pleasant scent.

    Those with light colored hair can just work the powder evenly through the hair, before brushing. Brunettes may need to add a little cocoa powder to the mix first to avoid a gray tinge.

    Nail Treatment

    Use baking soda to both whiten your nails and exfoliate the cuticles.

    For healthy cuticles, dip a nail brush into a paste made from baking soda and water. Rub this in a circular motion over the hands and fingers and rinse off.

    Those with yellow nails – caused by too much bright nail polish – can blend baking soda with the juice of half of a lemon and apply to the nails. While the lemon serves to lighten and nourish, its acidity means it is best avoided if your hands have cuts or scrapes!

    Freshening Mouth Rinse

    Kill the bacteria that cause bad breath and reduce the risk of canker sores with a baking soda mouth rinse.

    Stir a teaspoon of baking soda into half a cup of water until dissolved. Swish this around your mouth and gargle with it, making sure not to swallow. Repeat daily for healthy teeth and gums.

    This is also the ideal mixture to rinse with after oil pulling.

    Deodorant

    As you already know if you keep a box of the stuff in your fridge, baking soda has natural deodorizing properties, which makes it a great DIY natural deodorant. Just mix it with water until it makes a slightly moist, not runny, paste, and apply to your underarms to prevent sweat stains and body odor. You can also add cornstarch for even better wetness-absorbing ability.

    Oil tree Benefits

    ​Tea tree oil, also known as Melaleuca alternifoliais, is an essential oil that has been around for quite a while. It hasn’t been until the past decade has its healing benefits been catching on like wildfire.
    The oil is extracted from a plant native to Australia and cannot be found naturally occurring elsewhere.

    When I began using essential oils, I thought they were mainly meant to help things smell yummy. As I learned more about them, though, I found that many have healing properties and can even be used to natural boost the immune system.

    ​For years, people have used tea tree oil to help with skin aliments from acne to psoriasis. But its benefits don’t end there.

    Tea Tree Oil For Cancer
    both tea tree oil and frankincense oil have been proven to have anti-cancer benefits. For abnormal skin lesions, you can mix l frankincense oil, raspberry seed oil and tea tree oil, then place on the area three times daily.
    Tea Tree Oil for Infections and Cuts
    Tea tree oil mixed with lavender essential oil is the perfect ingredient in a homemade wound ointment. Make sure to clean a cut first with water and hydrogen peroxide if necessary, then put on tea tree oil and cover with a bandage to help fight off infections. A study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology even found tea tree oil helps kills MRSA and staph infections.

    Tea Tree Oil for Toenail Fungus and Ringworm
    Because of its ability to kill parasites and fungal infections, tea tree oil is a great choice to use on toenail fungus, athlete’s foot and ringworm. Put tea tree oil undiluted on the affected area using a clean cotton swab. And for stubborn fungi, consider mixing it with natural anti-fungal oil of oregano. Tea tree oil has also been proven beneficial for treating and removing warts, so simply put tea tree oil directly on the area for 30 days once or twice daily.

    Tea Tree Oil for Acne
    One of the most common uses for tea tree oil today is in skin care products, as it’s considered one of the most effective home remedies for acne. One study found tea tree oil to be just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, but without the associated negative side effects that many people experience including red, dried and peeling skin.
    You can make a homemade gentle tea tree oil acne face wash by mixing five drops of pure tea tree essential oil with two teaspoons of raw honey. Simply rub on your face, leave on for one minute, then rinse off.

    Tea Tree Oil for Psoriasis 
    Tea tree oil can help relieve any type of skin inflammation, including being used as a natural eczema treatment and for reducing psoriasis. Simply mix one teaspoon coconut oil, five drops of tea tree oil and five drops of lavender oil to make homemade tea tree oil eczema lotion or body soap.

    And Many others uses in:

    • Bacterial infections
    • Chickenpox
    • Cold sores
    • Congestion and respiratory tract infections
    • Halitosis (bad breath)
    • Dry cuticles

    The truth about Soy Milk

    Soy milk is a liquid made from ground cooked soybeans that is usually fortified (with calcium and vitamins) and used as a milk substitute.

    For long time soy milk have been used as a milk substitute. Some lactose intolerant people drink it because they want a milk substitute. Some health-conscious people drink it because they think it is the “heart-healthy low fat option.” And some vegans drink it because they don’t want to drink cow milk.

    Soy is definitely one of the most controversial foods in the world. Depending on who you ask, it is either a wonderful superfood or a hormone disrupting poison.

    But why all this controverse about Soy ?

    Over 90% of soy produced in the U.S. is genetically modified and the crops are sprayed with the herbicides, which may be associated with adverse effects on health.

    What about Soy milk?

    Almost every ingredient in soy milk  is cause for serious concern. Here are the ingredients in most of the Soy milk brands 

    Soy milk (Filtered Water, Whole Soybeans), Cane Sugar, Sea Salt, Carrageenan, Natural Flavor, Calcium Carbonate, Vitamin A, Palmitate, Vitamin D2, Riboflavin (B2), Vitamin B12.

    Carrageenan

    This seaweeds based additive is extremely inflammatory is so caustic to the digestive tract. The world health organization classifies one type of carregenan as a possible human carcinogen.

    Vitamin D2

    Vitamin D2 is a synthetic and isolated form of the vitamin D and, as a result, is extremely poorly absorbed.

    Vitamin A

    The vitamin A added to soy milk (and other non-dairy milks) is synthetic and, as a result, lacks the vitamin co-factors. Remember, your vitamin is only helpful if accompanied by its co-factors.

    Natural flavors

    “Natural flavors” can even mean various additives, even forms of MSG and artificial sweeteners.

    In conclusion Non Dairy milk are good alternative for vegetarian and lactose intolerant people but we have to be careful about the ingredients. Always check the labels

    I personally recommend avoid Soy milk for the reason that I expose in this post, and always look for unsweetened varieties of almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk between others.
