No matter who you are, it’s always a good idea to toss in some natural products into your health and beauty routine. Some natural products are very inexpensive and may even be items you already have around the house. With so many products out there that have ingredients that some of us can’t even pronounce, going natural is a route worth taking.
In this article, we are going to go over a few ways to naturally spruce up your beauty routine. These tips are generic across the board and will work for men and women alike.
Tip #1 Try CBD
If you haven’t tried CBD yet, you are definitely missing out. This amazing product has the ability to help ease the symptoms of anxiety while also offering pain relief at the same time. Another awesome benefit of using CBD is its heart health benefits, as it has the ability to naturally lower your blood pressure.
When put directly on your skin, CBD has the ability to treat a myriad of skin ailments including acne, eczema, and psoriasis. This is due to its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to reduce oil production.
CBD comes in a variety of different forms: gummies, oils, topical creams, beverages, and much more! Each form is available in a plethora of flavors, so feel free to try a few of them out before settling on a favorite.
If you are concerned about using CBD because you aren’t sure exactly what CBD is, there is no need to worry. CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is a component of cannabis. This component is different from THC, the part of cannabis that can give you the “high” effect. Since THC is not present in CBD, it cannot get you high!
You can learn all about this and more at TheCBDGuru.org, a site where they cover the subject of CBD in detail. They also have recommendations for the best CBD gummies and other products as well. They are a useful resource for all your CBD needs.
Tip #2 Use Coconut Oil
Believe it or not, there is a myriad of uses for coconut oil in your beauty routine. The list can go on and on, but here are some of its best benefits.
- Natural Hair Growth Remedy
- Body Moisturizer
- Body Scrub
- Shaving Cream
- Underarm Deodorant
- Helps with Cold Sores
Yes, believe it or not, coconut oil can really help with all these things. We use it in our hair as a regular treatment tool. It has helped repair our split ends, accelerated our hair growth, and it always leaves our hair looking and feeling healthier.
Look through those tips again. Do you think you can actually use coconut oil as a shaving cream or deodorant? Again, it’s true! Coconut oil is a creamy oil that is the perfect consistency to be a barrier between you and your razor. Not only that, but it smells fresh and can prevent your body from secreting its own stinky oils, alleviating the need for traditional deodorant.
One last amazing benefit of using coconut oil is the fact that it is an amazing moisturizer and it does wonders for your skin! If you have stretch marks from weight gain or pregnancy, putting coconut oil on them will help them fade. Some users have even reported that their stretch marks have disappeared completely.
Tip #3 Experiment with Various Essential Oils
I’m sure we are not the first ones to tell you about the benefits of using essential oils. They do wonders for improving numerous aspects of your health. Below, we are going to go over the health benefits of our favorite essential oils: lavender, peppermint, thieves, and frankincense.
Lavender helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. It aids in healing your cut and bruises and can make your eyelashes grow in longer and thicker. This is a great oil to keep around in the summer as it helps soothe sunburns, poison ivy rashes, and bug bites.
Peppermint oil improves dry scalp while also decreasing problems with indigestion and inflammation. If you struggle with nausea, peppermint oil can also be used as a comfort for that.
Thieves essential oil has many wonderful health benefits but it is best known for improving your immune system. Thieves can be used to treat cold sores, which can be a real eyesore on your face. This oil can also be used as a disinfectant that you can use to clean your home and free it from toxins.
Last but not least, we’ll mention frankincense. This precious oil can be used to reduce the look of scars and sunspots on the skin. It leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated and smooth. This oil can also be used to increase nail strength and reduce nail damage.
We recommend buying an essential oil diffuser and trying all these oils out for yourself!
Tip #4 Switch Up Your Shampoo Routine
Here is something you can do to improve your health and beauty routine that actually requires less effort on your part. We recommend washing your hair LESS often! Some people wash their hair every single day without realizing the negative effects associated with doing so.
Washing your hair more than necessary has a tendency to dry your hair out, leaving it weak and brittle. Also, it’s worth mentioning that many shampoos we buy at the store are stuffed full of artificial ingredients that are toxic to our bodies when absorbed through the skin. The less we use these products, the better.
With that being said, try to limit the number of times you wash your hair to two to three times a week. Also, look for products that contain ingredients you actually recognize and can pronounce. Always be conscious of what you are putting on or in your body!
We have just gone over a few ways you can naturally improve your health and beauty routine and we cannot wait for you to put our advice into action. CBD, coconut oil, essential oils and a change to your shampoo routine will drastically impact your overall health, leaving you feeling and looking amazing!
