Tea Bags For Puffy Eyes: Briefly steep 2 green, black, or chamomile tea bags in hot water for less than a minute. Then remove the tea bags from the water and chill in a small bowl in the refrigerator. Once chilled, place 1 bag over each closed eyelid. Leave on your lids for 5 to 15 minutes.
Raspberry and Coconut Oil For Brighter Lips: In a small saucepan on low heat, warm 1 Tablespoon coconut oil until it liquefies. Remove from heat and add 4 fresh or frozen red raspberries. Mash berries and blend until smooth. Place in a small glass container and refrigerate until firm. Use clean fingers or a lipgloss brush to smooth over lips. Make this fresh every few days.
Inverted Yoga Positions For Quick Natural Face Lift: Doing inverted postures before pictures, interviews, and meetings can improve circulation and help give your face some extra lift and vitality. You perform the “downward dog” yoga pose by getting on the floor on your hands and knees and then straightening your legs. Or, simply bend forward and reach towards your toes. Stay in one of these positions as long as you feel comfortable, for about 1 to 5 minutes.
Lovely Skin With Almond Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil And Pomegranate Seed Oil: Naturally hydrate dry skin and add an extra glow to the end of your skincare routine by creating a natural antioxidant-rich oil blend. Apply after cleansing or after putting on makeup. Mix together equal parts Pomegranate seed oil, Raspberry seed oil, and Sweet Almond Oil. Place 3 to 6 drops of the oil mixture in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together to warm the oils. Then, with your fingertips gently press the warm oil into dry areas of your face or areas where you have fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin Hydration With Coconut Water: Drinking a glass of fresh unsweetened coconut water to start the day with and filtered water through the day is just enough to keep your skin hydrated. At meals include skin-hydrating foods such as wild salmon, avocado, olives, and coconut.
Remove Dead Skin And Revitalize Your Face With An Organic Papaya Mask: Scoop out a ¼ cup raw papaya flesh and mash or blend with 1 Tablespoon fresh pineapple until smooth. Apply to dry skin and leave on for 5 to 15 minutes. Then rinse with cool water. If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test on your arm before applying to face. Papaya contains the natural enzyme papain, and pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain, which helps naturally exfoliate the skin to leave it smooth and soft.
Hydrate And Nourish Lips With Shea Butter: Using nourishing natural ingredients such as shea butter (or cocoa butter) and coconut oil will just make your lip salve. Mix equal parts of these ingredients in a bowl and apply on lips daily for quicker results. Read also: 5 Ways To Up Your Natural Beauty Look Game
