Looking After Your Natural Beauty

Living in the 21st-century, it can be easy to believe that more makeup, plastic surgery, and photoshop is the norm. The only problem is, it’s not. Young people all over the world are led to believe in images of perfection, with smooth skin and no lumps and bumps. It’s just not the way things should be.


We are all beautiful in our own way. We are the unique combination of our mother and father, making up a person who is one of a kind in a world with 7 billion others. We need to start learning to appreciate out natural features and love our appearance in a profound way. To love our true appearance to the fullest, we also need to know how to look after it. Here are a few tips to making your natural self shine.


Skin Care


The first step to a healthy complexion is to look after our skin. Many people spend hundreds of dollars a year on makeup, but really we should be spending that money on skincare. The skin is the base for all makeup, so if you want to look flawless every day, taking care of your skin is essential.


It is recommended that we all apply a face mask once a week. It might seem like you won’t have time to do this, but think about how important relaxing is to your physical and mental health. Take 30 minutes each week to sit down, read a book and sip on some wine while you take care of your skin. You will feel more vibrant, happy and look younger.


Your Smile


There’s nothing more beautiful than natural smiles. That’s why it is critical to take care of your oral health. It’s not sufficient just to brush your teeth twice a day; you also need to floss between your teeth at least once a week and use mouthwash to prevent infections. If you take that extra 5 minutes in the morning to clean your teeth deeply, you will see a huge improvement in your smile.


Hair Care


Your hair can be your greatest accessory. Whether you have long red locks or a glossy bob, looking after your hair is something which can impact your appearance and confidence hugely. If you take the time to apply oil to your ends each night before bed, and sleep with your hair in a braid, you will see a massive improvement to your hair’s health and appearance. You can make a hair oil at home by combining any of the following oils:


  • Macadamia Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Castor Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Argan Oil
  • Almond Oil
  • Avocado Oil


By applying a small amount of oil to your hair each day, you prevent split ends and strengthen your hair.


Stop Comparing Yourself


When you scroll through Instagram and see countless bikini-clad women on your screen, it can be easy to look at yourself and put down your own appearance. But remember, we are all built differently, and you can make simple changes to your lifestyle if you want to feel more confident and fit.

What to expect from an apprenticeship


Me and school never really agreed with each other. Endless detentions because my skirt was too short or my nails were painted, teachers who have no idea what they’re talking about and being told how clever I was based on an unreasonable exam. Don’t get me wrong, I loved primary school and up until year 9 I was a model student (mostly). But when the hormones kicked in and I was more interested in spending times with my friends, school was  my last priority. I did, however, achieve 4 A’S, 2B’s and a C in my GCSES.
