5 Tips to Enhance Natural Beauty

You watch what you eat, religiously apply creams, and work out regularly. In short, you strive to look your best at all times. But sometimes you still are not able to achieve that flawless jaw-dropping look. Worry not, here are five effortless beauty tips to help bring out your inner goddess, almost effortlessly

1.Work On Your Smile

Smiling's free, easy to do and highly contagious. A dazzling smile lights up your faces and makes us look more beautiful and attractive. To make the most of your smile, give your lips a weekly scrub and apply a lip balm several times a day. Brush your teeth after every meal and see your dental hygienist regularly. Plus, smile more often as smiling gives your face a natural work-out. So the more you smile, the firmer your skin gets.

2.Do not Forget Cleansing

Cleansing both morning and night is a sure-fire way to keep your glowing complexion. Dirty skin can't breathe, and it makes you look pale and tired. Dead skin cells clog the pores, causing inflammation, pimples and an uneven skin tone. A good cleanse with a lotion, gel, oil or foam will do the trick. Micellar water, the most gentle of all cleansers, removes impurities, dead cells and even the most stubborn makeup in a flash.

3.Hydrate Your Skin From Within

Beauty's not just skin deep - you need to hydrate it from both inside and out. Drink 1.5 litres of non-alcoholic beverages a day to make sure your skin cells get their fill. Keep sipping on your bottle of water, even if you're not thirsty. Next up, apply a moisturiser suited to your skin's needs: anti-wrinkle, anti-ageing, brightening, anti-fatigue. You can try the new L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence that is an ultra-light-weight watery formula which penetrates 10 layers into your skin to give you a glowing, brighter and youthful skin. It contains active ingredients like Salicylic Acid, which accelerates skin renewal & mildly exfoliates to refine pores & skin texture.

4.Get Your Beauty Sleep Every Day

The key to gorgeous skin is getting enough shut-eye. Your skin cells regenerate at night, particularly between 11 pm and 4 am. Try to get at least 7- 8 hours of beauty sleep a night. While you sleep, skin cells are detoxified, and free radical-producing toxins are shown the door (helping us to combat ageing skin). Moreover, don't have any caffeinated drinks or do any sports after 5 pm, eat a light evening meal, switch off your telly/tablet/PC at 10 pm and make sure your bedroom's a comfortable temperature. Try not to hit the sack too late.

5.Practice Deep Breathing

As you know, deep breathing improves the quality of your skin. Deep breathing helps regulate skin temperature, leaving us with a fresh, radiant complexion. No need to pile on the makeup: take time to unwind and a few deep breaths later you'll be glowing both inside and out.

Along with making changes in your lifestyle habits, it is also necessary that you use the right skincare products. Always use a product that suits your skin and is made with natural ingredients. Do not step out of your house without sunscreen. Use a sunscreen that gives you a matte finish and fresh look, like the new L'Oréal Paris UV Perfect Matte & Fresh that is enriched with kaolin clay to absorb excess sweat and works in maximum humidity perfect for Indian summers.
