Why Natural Beauty Rocks

Updated on October 16, 2017

Here's the Truth

First of all, make-up, hair extensions, expensive beauty products, clothing, and shoes can add up tremendously over time.

It is not a crime to splurge every once in a while for special occasions, such as weddings or birthdays. But when you cannot spend a day without making your face or dressing in the newest trend, ask yourself why.

For many women, artificial add-ons makes them feel beautiful for the day or they may need it to boost their mood. But, you will feel more confident and true to yourself when you embrace the real you. It is similar to practicing high self-esteem and self-worth.

If you must "beat" your face everyday no matter the occasion, suit yourself this article may not be for you.

Most make-up and hair extensions can carry harmful chemicals that could cause issues for your health overtime. So, it's in your best interest to refrain all together or only on occasion.

According to the Curejoy editiorial at, makeup can cause 10 harmful aide effects. A few of those being allergies, ear infections, and cancer. See the article here. Not only can we become victims of the harmful effects of artificial beauty enhancements, stars are often the people who experience this as well. The demand to look your best is very important for many celebrities and beauty enhancers play a big role. Check out this article on Jennifer Anniston's hair loss due to extentions:

Let's face it, embracing and taking care of your natural beauty is free. Try experimenting with D.I.Y. natural beauty products; using pure oils, butters, or natural household staples for a more natural glow and look.

It is way cheaper than purchasing facial products that contain harmful ingredients that can wreck your health years down the line.

Trends are Inspirational, But...

Trends are what's in and can be fun to play around with. We all want to feel good about ourselves, and trends can be a way of doing that.

From my experience, trends are wildly evident with young people in colleges and high schools. It is more noticeable among celebrities as well.

We all see celebrities in the hottest trends, and most of the time, they really look good wearing them.We want to look like them and feel cool too, so we go out and buy what's in style for the season.

But let's be honest, keeping up with every trend can get pretty overbearing. Especially if your funds are not as tight as your favorite celebrity. Sometimes it allows us to feel more accepted by society or social groups. Wearing the same shoes you had last winter may make that pretty hard.

Being yourself and buying what it appealing to your own tastes and budget is usually the way to go. The best thing to do is to splurge on what is necessary, which will save a lot of time and money.

For example, say you need a pair of boots because yours has grown holes in them. You'll be better off purchasing a pair that are good quality versus what's trending. Only buying when you need to is the best solution when it comes to trends.

If you must buy into trends, try to ask for discounts that may get you more bang for your buck.


Here's the Lesson to Take Away

Not that you should put a lot of effort into what people think, but when you are yourself you appear to be more authentic. Actually, you feel more authentic.

You are not putting on an act and the true you is more evident. You no longer have to run to the bathroom to see if your extensions are showing, re-apply another coat of setting powder, or break the bank keeping up with everyone else.

When you no longer have to put up the front, you become more free to be the yourself.

If the people you admire can not learn to accept you for who you really are, they should become non-existent in your life.

As a person of many capabilities, learning to embrace the person you truly are will show others what it means to love themselves.

"Don't worry if you're making waves by simply by being yourself. The moon does it all the time." -Scott Stabile
