3 Things To Do Now for Your Natural Beauty Routine
All of these are easy to implement both now and as part of a regular routine. And you’ll feel so much better after you’ve done them!
Exfoliate Your Entire Body
Instead of just exfoliating your face, why not scrub your entire body?
This is great to do as a new natural beauty routine, especially during warm weather. It will leave all your skin feeling and looking refreshed, as well as being nice and soft.
To start with, you can use a body scrub of natural ingredients. Combine any type of sugar or salt with oil like olive oil or coconut oil, and add some essential oils. This is the easiest way to have a body exfoliator.
You can also start using a dry brush and buff the skin with it. Dry brushing has tons of health benefits.
Rinse Your Hair With Apple Cider Vinegar
For your hair care routine, now is the perfect time to try some new natural products.
One great product to use on your hair is apple cider vinegar. This just provides a simple risk that will clean your hair and help to remove buildup or dandruff from your scalp. It can also add some shine to your hair.
Dilute the vinegar with the same amount of water, then add it to your hair, rinsing well in the shower. If you want a better scent, try some essential oils.

Make a Yogurt and Oatmeal Mask
To start a new beauty routine, you don’t want to forget about your face. This is a good time to use a mask about once a week.
You can make your own with just oatmeal and plain yogurt, providing all you need to moisturize your skin. The oatmeal is also going to exfoliate it in a gentle way. Mix these ingredients together and rub the mask on your face, letting it sit for about 10 minutes. Rinse it off with cool water.
Protect Your Skin!
Make sure using sunscreen is always a part of your beauty routine!
This protects your skin from sun damage, as well as helping to keep away premature fine lines and wrinkles, which is often the result of too much sun without protection.
Not all sunscreens are good for you. Here are a few I’ve tested and found to be worth the money:
