Kathy, in her 30s, is a mother of two and a strong believer of being natural and looking gorgeous. She tells us how you can look good without makeup. We suggest that you be armed with a pen and a notepad because these tips are going to last a lifetime.
“Let me start with the most important beauty tip anyone can ever give you. Drink water, and lots of it. Your skin deserves to be hydrated and supple all the time. Once you put the habit of drinking 7-8 glasses of water every day, your skin should cease to be dry and flaky”, advices Kathy.
Kathy continues, “My second tip for all you girls, who want to look good without makeup, is to develop a thorough and regular cleansing routine. Can you even imagine how much dirt and foreign particles find their way into the pores of your skin every day? Every night, I like to cleanse my skin with a good quality face wash”.
“But will a face wash be good enough to meet the cleansing requirements of our skin, Kathy?”, we ask. “No. And that is exactly why I give my skin a thorough cleansing by steaming on the weekend. The pores of my skin feel clean and alive, ready to look good without makeup”, replies Kathy.
“Looking good without makeup will also require you to enhance the natural beauty of your skin. I think a great way to do this is to remove all unwanted hair from your face, arms and other exposed parts. Keep your brows nice and trimmed and remove all hair follicles from above your lips and the chin area.
As easy as that”, says Kathy. We agree with Kathy because unwanted hair can be a major blow to your appearance, especially if you are trying to look good without makeup.
“How can we not have sunscreen in this list? Sunscreen is your best friend if you want to look good without makeup because it protects your skin from the harmful UV rays. Who needs those concealers if the skin isn’t damaged in the first place?”, says Kathy with a knowing smile. We think that’s a point well made, don’t you?
Kathy adds, “Exfoliating makes its way in the list of my top 5 tips because like anything else, skin needs to be rejuvenated on a regular basis. I exfoliate my skin every 3-4 days if I have time, or else on a weekly basis. Say goodbye to dead skin and say ‘hello’ to a great new way to look good without makeup”.
