How to Reclaim Your Beauty With the Power of Nature

When I was a little girl, I saw my mom flipping through what seemed to me the coolest magazine ever, and there was a photo of a young woman smiling, with two slices of cucumber on her eyelids. As you can imagine, I was perplexed, so I asked why she was wearing them instead of makeup, and she said: “Because she knows she will be much more beautiful if Mother Nature cares for her skin, inside and out.”

In addition to having such an incredible role model in my life, I’ve also come to realize that many women feel cheated out of their pure beauty because they relied on the pore-clogging, burdening modern products. So if you are looking to reunite with nature, feel in balance, and refresh your appearance, here is how you can start your cleansing adventure.

Sunbathe Safely

Enjoy those strolls on the beach and endless hours perusing your city streets with full protection from the sun’s harmful rays, but without any of the chemicals that can hurt your complexion. Thanks to advances in the beauty industry, mineral-based sunscreen products are now widely available, affordable and most importantly, all-natural.

For instance, this complexion-friendly Rose Face Sunscreen contains mild but powerful ingredients such as rose fragrance and zinc oxide to protect and refresh your fair skin, and it is completely cruelty-free. Moreover, in the spirit of sustainable summer, it’s safe for coral reefs and other marine life and underwater ecosystems.

Deliciously natural cleanse

In the ever-growing organic beauty world, there are quite a few reputable voices we can rely on when it comes to making our skincare decisions. One such voice comes from none other than Ella Mills, the creator of Deliciously Ella, and an avid green advocate who has come up with her own veggie recipe books and a skincare line with a fabulous reputation!

Her truly delicious gentle face wash is based on purely natural goodies such as lime, cucumber, and rose, which work in harmony to give your skin that youthful radiance and a rosy freshness. I use it every morning to jump-start my beauty routine with a splash of earthy wellness, and it truly makes me look and feel invigorated!

Pamper your skin with nature

I still have my makeup cravings when I want to go out with my girls, but I wouldn’t be a true green spirit if I hadn’t found a perfect combination of beauty and nature. Find your perfect beauty tools by carefully examining the ingredients – it’s best to choose those that are cruelty-free and with no synthetic elements that will overburden your complexion.

My personal favourite is the all-natural Nude by Nature makeup, and I love its eyeshadow palettes with a vivid selection of colours that mimic some of the most gorgeous natural shades of tan, along with equally gentle, but prominent blues and peach hues. Brimming with macadamia oil, Kakadu plum, and other green wonders, its makeup line had me head over heels in love after the first brush stroke.

DIY goodies

Just like your kitchen cabinet provides you with nourishment from within, your beauty can use these incredible items to help your skin health flourish! It takes virtually no time to compose your own symphony of fragrant care with the help of a few carefully selected ingredients, and you can safely rely on them for your most essential skincare.

Make use of your superfood stash to energize your complexion, for instance, with a healthy matcha mask to start your morning squeaky clean and fresh. Mix one spoon of matcha and chlorella with a smidgen of aloe water (or regular water) and apply it to your face for about 15 minutes.

On a final note

Switching to all-natural items is much easier than it seemed a few years ago. In fact, there are so many healthy options out there, that it’s going to be one fun journey finding those that will suit your best. Start and end every beauty routine with nature in mind, and you will quickly discover the ideal components to keep your skin radiant, healthy and beautiful for years to come.

    You know why most Italians live longer and aged beautifully? Because they live jn a sustainable lifestyle and eat slow food. They value nature!

    I am big on sunscreen-not just for the boys but my own self. I know what sun-dried skin can look like over time 🙂

    Sunbathing can actually be great for the body if done in moderation. Great for that vitamin D!

    Such wonderful tips! Having turned 40, skin care sure has gotten my attention. While I have a couple of key products that I love, I’m also taking a more holistic approach. I’ve found that if I stay away from sugar and get enough sleep every night, nearly all of my skin problems are gone. x

    I strictly use all natural products and I’ve never been happier! I just can’t stand how many chemicals they put in products now!

    Yeah I agree to you.. These days, natural products are really sprouting in markets like mushrooms. I bet, most people are really into natural. P.S. I so love your photos.

    I’m gonna give aloe water a try, since I’m getting a few aloe plants soon. Aloe is such a wonder-plant. I’ve also heard only good things about chlorella, but never got around to trying it (yet!). Love the suggestions.

    I’ve been looking into skin care for the first time since I was a teenager so this is very interesting, I never thought about going with all natural products but I like some of the points you made.

    I am 32 but still look much younger. Staying out of the sun is a must. The sun ages the skin terribly and prematurely!

    There is nothing more beautiful than natural beauty.
