4 Natural Ways to Enhance Your Natural Beauty

There are so many tutorials which teach women how to pile the makeup on their faces to enhance and transform their beauty. Not only is this process time-consuming, but it’s also harmful. There are so many toxins and chemicals found in many of the beauty products on the shelves of countless department stores. In order to enhance your beauty in a natural way, consider these four tactics.

1. Water

So many people underestimate the power of water. Do your best to drink water on a consistent basis. Take a look at your body weight. Drink half of your body weight in water. If you’re someone who weighs 140 pounds, do your best to drink seventy ounces of water per day. When your skin receives the right amount of water, it flushes the toxins away. In addition to nutrients that come from natural juicing, rest and a good lifestyle, water will help you look hydrated, energized and healthy.

2. Diet

Diet is such an essential part of the journey. If you give your body the right type of fuel, it will reflect in the way you look. In addition to drinking water, make sure you’re intentional about consuming lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Do your best to make sure you consume them at every meal. Whether it’s a salad with grilled chicken for lunch or green smoothie with your breakfast, always make it a habit to consume delicious fresh foods consistently. Your body will thank you, and your beauty will reflect your habits.

3. Beauty Products

Choose the right beauty products that are gentle and non-toxic. If you’d like to dye your hair, know that there are non-toxic options like indigo powder for hair. There are tons of makeup lines that provide vegan, non-toxic options that will give you the look you desire. Consider hydrating products like sheet masks to brighten and moisturize the skin.

4. Rest

There’s a reason why beauty sleep is a concept. When you don’t get enough rest, it reflects in the way you look. When you get enough rest, it gives your body time to repair and restore itself. Consider the use of a smartwatch app that allows you to track the number of hours you need in order to get the best rest possible.

Great Gift Ideas for a Country Woman

Some gift guides might give you the idea that all women live for makeup and high fashion. If you know a woman who prefers horses and hiking to heels and happy hour, you are probably looking for a different kind of gift. Below are a few suggestions.

Something to Wear

Just because she loves the rural life doesn’t mean her clothes need to be all work and no play, so if you’re thinking of getting her a pair of boots or a hat, make sure it’s something that is as fun or special as it is practical. Country girl belts can be great accessories because they can be worn anytime and won’t get in the way whether she’s gardening or riding the range. Gifts from a company like Gavere Leather that sells quality handmade products are a chance to give her something unique.

Something for the Home

She might enjoy an old-fashioned quilt, a rug with a rustic feel or a bread box made out of natural wood. On the other hand, she might want to make them herself. If she is craft oriented, whether she prefers sewing or woodworking or something else, supplies for a new project make a great gift.

Something for Fun

Books or movies with a country theme or some country music might be appreciated. If she likes to dance, maybe she would appreciate some line-dancing lessons. Depending on how much you want to spend, you could even get her tickets to see her favorite country singer in concert.

Whether the recipient of your gift is a city slicker who dreams of giving it all up one day to lead a simpler life or someone who couldn’t imagine ever leaving the farm, these gift ideas are bound to please her. Plan ahead if you are ordering online, and allow plenty of time for the gift to arrive for that memorable occasion.
