7 Natural Beauty Tips – Look Spectacular the Natural Way

 

Primal Beauty

In todays post I’m going to bring you 7 natural beauty tips that will help you look spectacular while enjoying the Primal-Paleo Living. “But you are a man, what do you know about beauty tips” you might be asking yourself.  Well yes, I am a man but I have a beautiful wife and an amazing daughter, so I think that should give me some credibility on the subject.

So lets get to it with my 7 tips for the Primal Girl, or any girl for that matter.  Even men if they are not to shy can find benefits in these tips as well.

1. Detoxing your skin with a dry brush

Dry brushing, well it means exactly that: you brush your skin with a soft bristle brush before you head into the shower. Dry brushing is an ancient cleansing process that will stimulates the largest organ of elimination – the skin. You would need a large, natural soft bristle-brush. You then begin to brush in a circular motion, starting from the feet and working your way up to your neck. you can use a smaller bristle-brush on your neck and face. This process removes dead skin-cells, increases blood circulation and gently stimulates the lymphatic system. This will leave you looking fresh, firm and glowing, but it also helps your body eliminate toxins faster. I would recommend doing it at night before bed time since it will also make you relax and have a good night’s sleep, Try doing it at least twice a day for best result.

2. Have Dry Skin? Want skin as soft as a baby’s bottom?

Do I have the thing just for you. Its an easy to make scrub that will take you less than 5 minutes. First pour a cup of fine sea salt into a bowl and mix it with avocado oil until the mixture is thick and smooth to touch. Then take the mixture into the shower and massage small amounts of the scrub onto your dry skin. Concentrate on elbows and knees. Once you are done just rinse with warm water. Please do not use soap since you would be washing away the oil if you do. After you finish rinsing just pat dry yourself and let the oil work it’s miracle.

3. Looking for whiter teeth?

The key here is Activated Charcoal, this is charcoal powder that has been treated with oxygen making it a fantastic absorbent of toxic substances. It’s use is recommended for food poisoning, and hangovers among other things and it is also fantastic as an inexpensive teeth whitener. Just pop a capsule in a small bowl then wet a toothbrush, preferably one selected for this process and move around the powder until it forms a black paste. Then rub the paste onto the front of your teeth being careful not to touch your gums and just let it sit there for 3 or 4 minutes. Then brush your teeth with the paste, again being careful not to touch your gums and follow by a good rinse out. Once you have completely rinsed brush your teeth with your favorite tooth paste.  Your teeth will feel smother and look whiter.  For best results try doing it twice a week and you will be surprised with the results.

 

4. Do you have Frizzy Hair?

Here is a good tip that really works, just put 5 drops of rosehip oil on the palm of your hand and rub your palms together, evenly smooth the oil over the ends of your hair and avoid the roots since it will make your hair look greasy just apply at the ends. I recommend you do this on the days you wash your hair. The hair will stay shinny and frizz-free until the next wash.

 

5. Looking for a good makeup remover?

Just go to your kitchen and get yourself some avocado oil simply pop a small amount of oil on a cotton pad and wipe your eyes clean first, then take another cotton pad with oil for the rest of your face. The oil works as a carrier agent; gently lifting and removing make-up without drying or irritating your skin.  Once the make up is off rinse your face with warm water and then apply a gentle, natural cream cleanser. Your face will definitely thank you for this.

 

6. Looking for strong shiny nails and hair?

Look no further, nature has just the right thing for you. It’s called collagen, a protein that is found in bones, tendons and cartilage. You can find it in bone broth or you can take collagen supplements you can mix the powder in your favorite smoothie or in plain water if you prefer with a touch of cinnamon. Another alternative is Great Lakes Gelatine you can just add a table spoon to your favorite smoothies, you can also make dummies of fruit jellies out of it. Gelatine is also known to be healing for the intestines since it is highly bio-available protein thats easy for the body to utilize.  You will see a huge difference in your nails and hair after using collagen.

 

7. Last but not least is your beauty sleep.

While you sleep, your body is repairing and restoring itself. A good nights sleep ensure a healthy body. So a very good remedy to ensure a good nights sleep is to mix in half a cup of Epson Salt and 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar to a foot soak and mix it all in with hot water. Then just unwind sit back and soak your feet for about 30 minutes and just relax. The vinegar will soften calluses while the Epson Salt will get absorbed through the large pores in the skin of the soles of your feet.  After a while you will feel sleepy so make sure you this just before going to bed.

 

Well this is it in a nut shell, I hope you have enjoyed these tips and implement them as a natural way of maintaining a beautiful you.  If you have tried any of these recommendations or if you have recommendations of your own please feel free to include them on a comment below.

    Although I am not a fan of any diet that eliminates food groups the Paleo diet seems to be very good for the people who follow it. Your beauty tips are excellent. I have dry skin and tried your fine salt and avocado oil treatment and could not believe the difference. Next, I am going to try the frizzy hair treatment. I have recommended your post to several of my friends and family and they all love the advice you gave here.

    1. Thank you so much Margaret for you feedback. Glad you found value in my post. Please make sure you stop by often to see my updates.

    Great post. I’m not getting enough sleep, any tips to get better sleep? and my skin is horrible. I have super frizzy hair and its so annoying. I will try the oil to see if it helps. Do you have any tips for acne? I have quite a lot and its really affecting my confidence

    1. Hi Emma: Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment.  I’m glad that you found value in my tips. As far as acne is concern a good tip is to take an avocado and make a mask out. Not only is avocado a superfood internally for your entire body, but it can be used topically as a nourishing mask for worn out skin! You can mix other ingredients with it, or you can just mash it and slather it on. (It’s also a great hair mask for extra-dry hair, too!) Avocado is rich in folate, vitamin K, and fiber, and contains many properties that fight inflammation. Since acne is a skin inflammation, avocado works wonders for acne.

    Excellent tips, Primo. I’m an advocate of a good night sleep, as I too believe that your body cells get restored. Which means not only good quality of sleep, but an 8hour long one too.
    But the one tip that I was not aware is the one to use a charcoal powder to whiten your teeth. My only concern would be how to avoid touching your gums. Is this because it can inflame your gums, or what other side effect does it have?
    But I’d be definitely prepared to give it a go.

    1. Hi Giulia: Thanks for the visit and leaving your comment. There is no real reason why it shouldn’t d touch your gums, I just don’t like the way it feels but it’s perfectly harmless if it touches your gums.

    Hi. Honestly, I’ve never done anything related to Primal-Paleo Living, but I have to admit. Your 7 NATURAL BEAUTY TIPS are extremely helpful. Yes, I’m a guy, but I like to look nice too. As I get up there in age, I want my wife to continue to think “I’m hot!”

    Out of the 7 tips, the ones that I found more beneficial were the teeth whitening, getting strong nails and hair, and getting a good night’s sleep.

    For the teeth whitener, I’ve never heard of Activated Charcoal before. I’m glad there’s an inexpensive way to go about whitening my teeth. However, it does concern me that I shouldn’t touch my gums while applying the substance and leaving on my teeth for 3-4 minutes. I’m not sure how well that would work but I’m willing to try it.

    Getting the strong nails and hair is more so for my wife. She talks about her hair breaking off often. I’ll let her know about the collagen supplements and how she can mix it in with a smoothie. This will score me some good husband points!!!

    Lastly, I knew getting a good night’s sleep was helpful, but I didn’t know that using Epson Salt and 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar would contribute to a good rest. I knew about Epson Salt helping to relax muscles and relieve tension, but sleep? That’s a new one that I’m definitely going to implement.

    Thanks for the helpful info!!!

    1. Hi Andre: Thanks for the visit and leaving your comment. No need to worry about the gums.  There is actually no negative effect if it touches your gums.  I just do not like the way it fells, but it’s perfectly save if it touches your gums.

    Hello there, I really enjoy your site! As an active searcher for home remedies or natural solutions to every day challenges or obstacles, I find this article very appealing!

    Avocado oil seems to have a lot of benefits for the skin, is it okay to consume as well?

    I really do have trouble sleeping, I will give the epson salt and apple cider vinegar mixture. Does apple cider vinegar have the same effect if it is take orally? I presume it would, and that way we could get more of the immune system benefits as well.

    Really awesome review, I will show my girlfriend about the makeup remover and smoother skin too!
    Thank you, have a great day!

    1. Hi Christopher: Thank you for the visit and leaving your comment. I’m very glad you found value in my article and hope you and your girlfriend enjoy these tips.

    Excellent tips! I am going to start using the dry skin one on my feet. I have not heard that one before. I have dark puffy circles that I can’t seem to control even when I’m getting enough sleep. Do you have any ideas about how to get rid of those?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Angela: Thank you so much for dropping by and leaving a comment, greatly appreciated. According to the Mayo Clinic, dark circles under the eyes are sometimes hereditary, in which case no remedy is going to do much. But other causes include allergies, emotional stress, smoking, chronic alcohol use, nasal congestion, irregular pigmentation, rubbing the eyes, and sun exposure. High on the list is to get enough rest. Lack of sleep especially contributes to darkness under the eyes. On average, we need about seven hours of sleep nightly. Smoking cigarettes also causes darkness under the eyes in many cases, as well as too much alcohol. Reduce smoking and alcohol consumption, and that will help your entire body. Allergies are related to dark circles too. Drinking nettle tea every day can reduce or eliminate allergies and will also provide your skin with silica, which makes it look healthy and tight.
