I’m excited to share with my top 26 natural beauty tips that I’ve learned over the years doing skin care research and in naturopathic medical practice.
These are super easy to do at home with just a few ingredients.
As an alternative to expensive, invasive procedures and toxic skincare ingredients, I’m sharing these do-it-yourself tips to help you save time, money and your health.
And, the best part is you’re using the healing powers of nature and supporting your body’s innate healing capacities to look naturally beautiful.
Briefly steep 2 green, black or chamomile tea bags in hot water for less than a minute. Then remove the tea bags from the water, and chill in a small bowl in the refrigerator. Once chilled, place 1 bag over each closed eyelid. Leave on your lids for 5 to 15 minutes. Watch this video if you’d like to see me explain this.
In a small saucepan on low heat, warm 1 Tablespoon coconut oil until liquid. Remove from heat and add 4 fresh or frozen red raspberries. Mash berries and blend until smooth. Place in a small glass container and refrigerate until firm. Use clean fingers or a lipgloss brush to smooth over lips. Make this fresh every few days.
Doing inverted postures before pictures, interviews and meetings can improve circulation and help give your face some extra lift and vitality. You can do “downward dog” yoga pose by getting on the floor on hands and knees and then straighten your legs. Or simply bend forward and reach towards your toes. Stay in one of these positions as long as you feel comfortable, for about 1 to 5 minutes. If you have physical limitations such as injuries or back pain, check with your healthcare provider about how you can modify this posture. Here are 7 different poses you can do for glowing skin.

Who said there aren’t many cruelty-free and vegan makeup brands?! I created this guide containing 101 brands to show you that it’s possible to find quality cruelty-free makeup for every budget, from high-end to drugstore!
I included my personal experience with these brands, but I also remained objective about my recommendations. If some products really suck, I made sure to tell you about it. If you’re a makeup beginner, I hope this guide will be helpful to you!
! 2017 UPDATE ! I added more brands to the list! I also now mention ALL cruelty-free brands regardless of parent companies. If a brand is owned by a company that isn’t cruelty-free, you’ll find a * beside the brand and the parent company will be clearly marked.
I divided the guide into 4 sections: Mid-Range and High-End Brands, Drugstore Brands, Natural and Organic Makeup Brands, and Independent or Indie Makeup Brands that are quite popular, but mostly not available in stores.

It’s no secret that dozens of toxic chemicals could be lurking in your makeup bag. Considering that your skin can absorb up to 80% of these toxins unfiltered, putting unnatural makeup on your face provides a direct route for these chemicals to get inside your body, which poses a serious health risk.
The good news is that there is a lot of choice out there when it comes to sourcing natural beauty products. Hopefully the popularity of organic makeup represents a sea change in how the beauty industry operates; the more people who support healthier cosmetic choices would only disincentivize brands from continuing to use these awful ingredients.
We’ve rounded up some of the very best natural and organic makeup brands that not only do a stellar job of beautification, their plant-derived components will also heal, condition, and soothe your skin:
