Beautiful Skin Without Cosmetics for Girls
In college, I met many beautiful girls who felt the need to cover themselves with three layers of foundation to step outside of their dorm rooms. For that matter, my junior year roommate was so obsessed with always looking at her best that she used to wear makeup even in the room on days she didn't really have to go out. In the duration of the one year we were roommates, I saw her without makeup only once and that too by mistake. I was actually quite surprised to see her real skin. It looked damaged by the harsh chemicals in the cosmetics she used to apply day after day.
My interest in keep my natural skin clean and looking young and youthful started in my teens during which time I suffered from acne and acne spots. I used many cosmetics, creams and even anti-biotic medications because many dermatologists had me convinced that only bacteria and oil alone caused acne and other skin problems. All the cosmetics I used never really helped with my acne problem and worst they used to dry out my skin completely. So, I was determined to find a natural solution to keeping my skin beautiful. I tried home remedies, facials and natural creams. Although they helped a little, my skin still looked damaged. Then I turned to the only natural logically solution that was shown to me - to change my lifestyle. I realized I ate junk food and beverages, led mostly a sedentary lifestyle, faced a lot of stress and slept very little. Once I started to lead a healthy lifestyle, I was amazed at my skin’s natural ability to heal without fancy cosmetics and creams.
I think skin is a reflection of the internal health. If you want a clear beautiful skin, you really should aim to improve your internal health. Skin is the largest organ in the human body and is greatly capable of healing itself when you supply what it needs. Acne or other skin problems are basically due to harmful toxins in the body. Bad toxins can lead to hormonal imbalances that manifest as skin problems and other health conditions. I used to see my roommate eat microwavable food everyday after coming to the room from parties at late hours before bed. She also slept very little and lived on caffeine to stay up. I once asked her whether she knew how bad the food she is putting into herself is and to my surprise, she said yes. So, she knew the food was bad, but didn't really care because she had foundation and other cosmetics to make her look pretty. She regretted leading a bad lifestyle, but never really did anything because using cosmetics was easier than changing bad habits.
Naturally attaining beautiful skin will take time, effort and patience. Body’s natural processes are complex, and so you have to be patient and keep leading a healthy lifestyle to see results. Flushing out all the already existing toxins from your body by drinking a lot of water and exercising is on the best ways to start the skin‘s healing process. Added to that, you should also supply adequate vitamins and minerals to aid the healing further. Sleep is very important to your body and to your skin to replenish and heal. Obtaining clear gorgeous skin certainly is possible if you are willing to change your bad habits and committing to being healthy.
As a college student, it can be hard to lead a healthy lifestyle. But ultimately, you should decide between natural obtaining beautiful skin by being healthy and suffocating your skin with harsh chemicals while leading an unhealthy lifestyle.
