Make Your Eyes Look Amazing Without Makeup

You do not have to wear makeup all the time for your eyes to look their best. In fact, it does them good to have a rest from it. Forget the mascara, eyeshadows and liners for a while and let the natural beauty of your eyes light up your face.

Get Enough Sleep

You need to get enough sleep if you do not want your eyes to look droopy or puffy. When you sleep, your body repairs and restores itself and that includes your eyes. If you do not want them to look dull and lifeless, but want them to be sparkling, make sure you do not stay up all night but get the sleep you need.

Look After Your Eyebrows

Your eyebrows frame your eyes and although sorting them is not as important as regular eye care checks, they are still an important part of looking after your eyes from a beauty perspective. Do not pluck them too much as a strong eyebrow can make your eyes look wonderful. It is best to get them professionally shaped and find out from the experts what the best shape is for your face structure. Brushing them upwards can help to open up the area around your eyes too.

Treat The Skin Around Your Eyes

When you are moisturizing the rest of your face do not forget the skin around your eyes. You should not use your normal moisturizer for this area though as the skin is much thinner. You should use a gentler cream that offers a barrier repair, and something with a rich emollient is the best.

Have A Nightly Routine

Get into the habit of applying eye cream at night as part of your beauty regime. You can even put it on your eyelids at this time of day. It will help to restore your skin around the eyes from the vigor’s of the day and make them look much more refreshed when you get up the next morning.

Have A Different Morning Routine

You should apply a lighter eye cream in the morning and avoid putting any on your eyelids. Be gentle as you are applying it as pressure around your eyes can cause puffiness.

Eye Brightening Drops

Eye brightening drops can be good for anyone that suffers from allergies, or if your eyes are looking tired. If they are feeling irritated the eye drops can ease this, and reduce any redness in them. There are ones on the market that are designed especially to brighten your eyes, but before you put anything into this most delicate organ, you should speak with your physician and OK it with them.

Stay Healthy

The most important thing to keep your eyes looking good is to stay healthy.  Getting enough sleep has already been mentioned, but did you realize that exercise is good for your eyes as well as the rest of your body? Taking a short walk can improve the eyes fluid drainage system and make them look brighter.

If you keep getting dark circles around them it could be a sign of an iron deficiency. Try eating some iron rich foods and the dark circles should become less obvious. If they do not, talk to your physician, as you may need an iron supplement.



Your eyes can look great all the time without the need for any makeup at all, you just need to care for them.

Give Your Face A Glow (Without Make-up)

Want your face to look more radiant? It’s possible to give yourself a glow without having to reach for the cosmetics. Here are just a few ways that you can brighten up your appearance.

 

Exfoliate your skin

Dry skin will give you a more dulled and tired look. Take the time every day to moisturize your face to keep it looking smooth and glossy. Not only will it make you look fresher, but it will also prevent aging to your skin, fighting off those wrinkles. Washing your face regularly with a good cleanser can also prevent spots and blackheads from appearing. For those that are more susceptible to zits, try using natural products such as tea tree and witch hazel to clear out those pores.

 

Eat the right foods

Various foods can be very healthy for your skin. Many Mediterranean foods such as olive oil, tomatoes and fish are great for fighting sun damage and providing enriching anti-oxidants into your skin, keeping those cheeks rosy. Cutting out the carbs can also lower levels of cortisol – a stress hormone that can make skin more tired and spotty. Such carb heavy foods include white bread, pasta and refined sugar. Drinking lots of water will also keep your skin hydrated and smooth.

 

Get your beauty sleep

No-one wants black circles around their eyes. Too little sleep will not just give you bags though – it can increase sensitivity to skin allergies, speed up aging and take away collagen from the skin – the chemical that is essential for giving it that glow. If you want to keep your skin healthy, make sure that you’re getting enough sleep each night and power nap when this isn’t an option.

 

Bring a shine to your smile

Pearly white teeth will immediately give your face a glow. There are many ways to whiten those. Brushing more regularly and more vigorously is the obvious answer. Finding the best toothpaste for whitening may help to speed up the process. You should also try to limit foods that may be staining your teeth such as coffee, tea and red wine, as well as limiting your sugar intake (particularly fizzy drinks). Smoking is also bad for your smile – the tar will increase the rate of yellowing. Brush more often, chew gum and use whitening products to counter the effects of these tooth staining culprits.

 

Give your hair a sheen

Shiny hair can also help frame your face better and bring out the glow in your cheeks. There are various products and serums that you can use to add shine to your hair. If you’re using these, make sure that you’re not washing those locks too regularly. Over-washing gets rid of natural oils which stop your scalp from drying out, causing dull and brittle hair. How you dry your hair can also affect its natural sheen. Don’t always reach for the hairdryer as this could be damaging your hair. Try using a microfiber towel or t-shirt and dab gently. By far the healthiest way to dry your hair is to let it air dry naturally – something you may not be able to do on weekday mornings before work, but could be worth trying out over the weekend when you don’t have anywhere to be.

Look after your skin

Our skin is really delicate. It is one of the first signs of outward aging and if we don’t look after it we could prematurely age ourselves. Choosing the right skin care methods is really important. There are many creams on the market all offering similar results. However, I find that this extra firming wrinkle remover by Clarins is one of my favorites. It works to give your skin the lift it deserves without having to resort to anything drastic like surgery!


Drink lots of water

Making sure you stay hydrated is so important. Drinking water helps to flush all the toxins out of your body and keep it running like clockwork. Water also helps your kidney to function properly so it can take care of your organs. Skin is of course your largest organ, so when you are fully hydrated your skin stays soft and supple honey.


Eat the right foods

How we look on the outside is of course a more obvious way of spotting aging, but how often do you think about your insides? Stuffing our bodies with valueless food does nothing for us. There are so many foods which help our skin to stay bright and young as well as our insides working correctly. Not only do they help you look young, but they also help with your health too. Things like fish, nuts and green veggies keep your mind sharp too.


Get enough sleep

So many of us sacrifice a good night’s sleep for pointless tasks.... you know how you to- social media surfing, late night tv shows, etc. How many times have you stayed up to watch television only to feel terrible the next morning. Make sure you take the time to get as much sleep as you need. Without it, the next day you will find yourself finding it difficult to concentrate and do things as well. On top of this, sleep also helps us to look younger. Whilst we sleep our body’s production of Human Growth Hormone is at its highest. This is what keeps us looking younger. Without this hormone you will find yourself looking tired and older. Therefore, make sure you are getting enough shut-eye to let your body produce this miracle hormone.


Keeping fit and active

We all have different commitments which sometimes means we don’t feel like exercising. However, if you can take time out of you day to make sure you go to the gym, you will be a lot better off. Not only does it strip fat but it also keeps you mobile and limber. In fact, it is even said that regular exercise can help to reverse the aging process. That sounds like a theory I could get on board with.


What are some ways that you try to stay younger looking?
