To look pretty without makeup is to seem natural and feel at ease with your countenance. Perhaps, you're opposed to wearing makeup for a number of reasons. Even so, whatever your reason, you can always appear attractive naturally. It's only a matter of keeping up with good hygiene and feeling confident in your skin.

Take a Shower with a Gentle Soap

You should make certain you are neat and clean-looking every day. Take a shower and add body oil to your skin to make it shine even more, and then wipe the excess oil off with a towel, so you don't develop blemishes.

Develop a skin care regimen by washing your face with a light soap such as pure castor oil soap once a day. And stay hydrated by drinking half your body weight in ounces to improve your skin tone and circles around your eyes. Remember, to sleep at least eight hours a night on a silk pillowcase to improve the quality of your skin all around.

Brush Your Face and Use Rose-Water

Brush your face with a light facial brush to remove dead surface skin every three days or thus. This is to keep your face faultless, and not dry and flaky, but rather smooth and soft. And then apply a natural oil moisturizer, such as extra-virgin olive oil, or mist your face with a hint of natural rose-water as an astringent.

You can make your own rose-water by placing in a jar two tablespoons of lemon balm, one tablespoonful of dried Calendula, one tablespoon of comfrey leaf, four tablespoons of dehydrated chamomile, one teaspoon of fresh rosemary leaves, four teaspoons of rose petals, one teaspoon of dried-up sage with apple cider vinegar. To cover along add three ounces of Witch Hazel.

Cover your rose-water vinegar jar tightly and let stand in a warm spot for two to three weeks and next strain and keep the liquid. Add one cup of Witch Hazel for each cup of your herbal rose vinegar to make rose-water. Pour the mixture into a bottle and cork tightly! When you’re ready to use it, gently rub it on your face with a soft cotton ball, or spray lightly as needed.

Brush Your Teeth and Comb Your Hair

Brush your teeth and floss to remove any plaque at least twice a day. Use a natural toothpaste that whitens and does not contain harsh ingredients.

Comb your hair neatly in a ponytail or lose, so it doesn't look messy. You can pin your hair up with a barrette; Bobby pins or hair tie.

Jewelry always adds a nice touch such as colorful earrings and a necklace. This will immediately make you look brighter. And, remember to brush your eyebrows up and away from your eyes to create a dramatic look.

Clean, Buff and Clip Your Nails

Once a week is enough for a manicure and pedicure, which you can do yourself in twenty minutes time. Use a nail clipper instead of curved scissors. And forget about using a cuticle knife, because it will it hack the selvage around the nail, instead use a gentle emery board one that is diamond cut.

Remove all foreign matter from under your nail with an orangewood stick, after you have soaked your fingers and toes in the warm soapy water. Scrub your feet with a pumice stone to remove dead skin and drench your feet with oil, and cover them with socks at night to keep them supple. And never walk barefoot on concrete; it will destroy the skin of your feet by making it extremely tough. What's more, your skin may crack and bleed!

Fix Your Eyebrows and Shave Your Legs and Armpits

Pluck your eyebrows to keep them looking neat and shapely. And cut your eyebrow hairs if they are too long or curly. This will make them look tidy. Also remember, to brush your brows and jab a bit of clear lip gloss on them to keep them neat. This will frame your eyes and make you look attractive and always smile to look pleasant and relaxed.

Dainty ladies shave their legs and armpits too! The optimal time for this is while you’re in the shower. Apply a pinch of soap to your hands and lather your armpits and legs, then gently raze, and rinse. If shaving is too cumbersome, you can have these unwanted hairs removed with a laser or wax. Your armpits and legs should appear more attractive with a smooth finish. When you wear sleeveless blouses your attire will look trim.

Wash, Condition and Style Your Hair

Greasy or dry locks never look good. For attractive hair, you must wash and condition it properly. Apply a gentle shampoo and deep conditioner. Even if your hair is oily, it's best you use a hair rinse. The best hair products are the natural ones, like coconut and olive oil and apple cider vinegar. You shouldn't wash your hair every day, twice a week is optimal. Remember, not to use heat on your hair like blow drying. This tends to damage the hair shaft and creates split ends. You may even develop hair loss from heated rollers.

A haircut and hairstyle that becomes you is optimal in helping you look your best. Don't attempt to trim back your own hair, get pampered at a beauty salon instead. Gently comb your hair every day and wear it loose. You may bind your hair or create an updo from time to time for a special function.

Wear Clean and Stylish Clothes

Wear clean clothes and do your best to match your clothes, to look, put together. Make sure your pants are not dragging, and your shoes are presentable and not torn; this also goes for your coats and skirts. Remember to match with chic accessories such as your hat and scarf, as well.

    I never wear makeup, mostly because I can't afford it. Also, because I've never really learned how to use it.

    I really appreciate your tips here. It's good to learn a little more about yourself each day. I'm 66 years old, and still learning!

    I don't think the video is really necessary, though.

    Thanks.

    Up, Interesting, Useful.
