More and more women now are looking for natural beauty solutions. Those that aren’t usually don’t because they think natural beauty solutions are hard to find, expensive, or both of those things. I’ve got a news flash for you guys!
You can find more natural beauty solutions that are super duper easy to find AND they won’t break the bank, which means you can keep up your simple beauty routine without all those chemicals you find in most beauty products nowadays.
Even before my recent health issues, I’ve been looking for natural beauty solutions that I could feel confident about the ingredients.
The more I educated myself through the years, the more I became worried about all the ingredients in beauty products that you can’t pronounce. (Like WTH is quaternium?? Pssstt that’s formaldehyde in case you didn’t know that)
When I became highly sensitive to chemicals, I really had to dig deep to figure out what beauty products I could use that wouldn’t make me ill. Not that I would wish chemical sensitivites on anyone, but it forced me to have to find more natural beauty solutions and care about what is exactly in my beauty products.
For me, the perfect blend is something that doesn’t break the bank (I’m frugal yo) and doesn’t have the following ingredients: harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, dyes, phthalates. Keeping those guys out my beauty routine has already began to brighten my day!
What about you? Are you looking for more natural ways to take care of yourself? It’s really important to find things that make you feel awesome on the inside and out!
Life is too short not to find things that put a little extra pep in your step! Beauty isn’t just about what you put on your face, it’s also about the passion you put in your life.
Some of these beauty tips might surprise you, but you know I’m all about keeping it real and sharing tips with you that have worked for me!
It must be working because recently my grandma told my mom “Ash is one of those women that gets more and more beautiful as she ages.” (Yup, I’m gonna cling to that compliment ;)) Now onto the tips!
4 Natural Beauty Solutions To Leave You Glowing
Find Your Truth: Nothing is more natural than finding your truth. What the heck does that mean? It means finding your soul, finding your passion, and finding how to make time for yourself! (Hint hint, you can read a blog post about that if you click the previous link)
Protect Your Skin: Your skin is one of the biggest parts of your body. Whether you are fair skinned like I am, or you are just trying to make sure you don’t look like a crocodile purse, it’s so important to make sure to protect your skin.
Plus, it’s an added bonus that this is an eco-friendly choice as well. (That makes my not so inner tree hugger happy) The folding cartons that the moisturizer comes is made from 100% recycled materials! After your done with your container you can recycle it as well! LOVE companies that try to make as minimal of an impact on the environment as possible!
Water Baby: Water is one of the easiest natural beauty solutions. We are practically made up of 99% water, so it’s no surprise that we need to consume lots of water.
To be honest, I’m REALLY bad at this one, but I try to mix it up with some fun recipes like watermelon infused water to get my water intake in. Though if anyone can figure out how to drink the amount of water we need without making 50 trips to the bathroom, please comment below because this gal has the bladder the size of a pea obviously.
Reduce Stress: Stress is AWFUL for your body, and definitely won’t leave you glowing. If fibromyalgia has taught me ANYTHING, it’s just how much stress can affect your body. It’s no joke that too much stress can age us and make us unhappy.
The best part of this tip is that it’s free! It’s so important to stress less. Most of the things we stress about never actually come to pass anyway, so why waste our brains stressing over things. Need a little more support? Then you need to check out these 3 easy tips to stress less! Totally worth it!

Jodi Horsley says
Over the years I have become uber sensitive to chemicals as well. In fact, when I first started having a reaction, my research is what educated me on all the junk. I definitely need to work on the water thing. I’m a coffee clutcher, even if its decaf. Yikes
Robin Rue says
Hydration is definitely one of the biggest helps with having clear skin. I have found this out over the years.
Reesa Lewandowski says
I can always tell when I am super stressed because of the way my skin looks. You have that right on!
I am always looking for natural beauty solutions. I have been drinking a ton of water and my skin definitely looks better.
Elizabeth Lampman says
It is so important to stay hydrated. I like to make DIY skin scrubs to stay exfoliated.
Ann Bacciaglia says
I am working on reducing the stress in my life. It can be so hard but it is necessary.
That’s is music to my soul…find your truth. So so so true and needed!
Lisa Favre says
I’ve been finding myself stressed lately and I know that I have to take a moment and just breathe and relax. My best friend booked me a day at the spa and I am so grateful for it!
You know, I wish I could just reduce stress… ha! I would probably look 20 years younger. I had no idea that water had so much to do with skin. So great to know. Thanks so much for sharing
Some of the ingredients in beauty products are quite scary. I try to drink as much water as I can and reduce my stress level.
I really need to moisturize more. My skin gets really dry with the cold weather. I am going to have to pay more attention to what is in my beauty products.
Ash Sears says
Living in Minnesota, I know ALL about cold weather 😉
I have to work hard to protect my skin! Totally agree with the water tip! Water works wonders.
Vera Sweeney says
I love natural beauty solutions like this!!! They are great alternatives to chemical filled products.
These are all such great tips! I have to admit since volunteering my time with a local pet rescue I feel such a sense of fulfillment and it goes a long way with helping me to feel good about myself and my life. I’d say my biggest beauty tip is to wear a smile’
Nancy @ whispered inspirations says
Great beauty tips! I always protect my skin and I’ve been finding a lot of ways to reduce stress.
Ash Sears says
Until I had to figure out ways to reduce stress I never realized just how much effect it had on all of my life!
Cathi Crismon says
I too have severely sensitive skin. I can’t wear anything but a light moisturizer. We use Neutrogena face wash for everything. I’m going to have to give Neutrogena Naturals Brightening Moisturizer a go too.
Ash Sears says
It has done wonders on my skin.
Hali @daytodayMOMents says
I’ve been working on just this, it starts with paying attention to yourself – and then these follow! Can be hard as a parent.
