I feel the most comfortable without makeup, and I know a lot of women who cannot go a day without makeup without feeling insecure.. You don't need makeup to feel and look pretty - If you naturally feel good about yourself, then the rest just comes with it.
This can happen by taking care of your skin, and you'll realize you would only need minimum makeup. This post is about natural remedies, so it doesn't include everything I use. Non-natural skincare products I use are Neutrogena GrapeFruit Scrub, I have been using that since I was in high school and Biore nose strips for blackheads and pores.
Hope this helps x

I think that's the best thing made for skin and nutrition. drink atleast 4-5 water bottles a day, there's a always a water bottle with me at all times. Even when I'm not thirsty, I still drink water to stay hydrated and fresh. Try vitamin water if you don't regular water. Try steaming water when you're in the shower. I put my face out there for the warm to mild hot water. It opens up your pores, and you can really clean them up right away afterwards.

It is my favorite natural remedy out there. They are so refreshing and amazing for cleaning skin and pores. It is similiar to rose water. My personal favorites are Rose Petal and Lavender. I use this about 4-5 times most days - morning, afternoon, evening, night and also after I take off my makeup.
Other times when I'm busy and outside, I use it atleast twice. My pores use to be massive before, and this has made a huge difference in my skin! I've been using it for atleast 6 months now. This can be purchased on Thayers.com, Amazon, iherb and pharmacy stores.

I use this in the morning and at night time. It can be a bit stingy if you have acne skin, but it works really nice to refresh and clean your skin. It prevents break outs, and benefits your skin a lot.

I don't wear makeup at all times, most of the time I'm bare face. As soon as I come off from either school, work, or a night out - I remove my makeup right away, even if it's the middle of the day. I don't like chilling at home with a cake faced.
For me, I'm more comfortable without makeup. I would suggest to leave heavy foundations and contouring for a special day, and not an everyday look. My everyday look is tinted moisturizer, concealer, blush, mascara, and vaseline. I don't wear foundation on a regular basis. Too much makeup and different use of makeup applications can break you out. Never sleep with your makeup on.

.. I know that is probably the most difficult thing to do. I'm on a chocolate diet for a year now, the last time I craved and ate chocolate was 4 months ago. I love chocolate, but it's not healthy for my skin and can cause break outs.
It mainly depends on your skin though. Too many sugary sweets can lead to acne, but there is very little evidence stating chocolate itself causes acne. Allow yourself cheat treats every 2 months if you want to try this, and don't take more than two chocolate pieces! It's hard, but it has worked for me.

I don't have a regular diet besides the chocolate diet. There's only so much that you can cut back on. I love junk food especially messy and unhealthy chicken burgers, but I do love eating cesarean salad with chicken strips - its amazing and has the perfect balance. Other times, I eat salad a lot with other meals. I eat a lot of fruits especially pomegranates, and mangoes. With vegetables, I only like spinach.

I always use this right before I sleep. I leave it on overnight. i have been using this for more than a year. It had made a pretty huge difference in my skin. My skin is much more brighter and refreshing looking. My freckles are more dimmed now. This can be purchased from Amazon or a regular pharmacy store.
