How to Look Good Without Makeup Naturally

look good without makeup naturally

Makeup is a powerful tool. It is a woman's best friend. It exists to brighten your day. It boosts your ego and make you feel confident on days when you would otherwise choose to hide, far from sight.

Makeup can make your skin look better. It can hide blemishes, acne, and visually lift your skin without undergoing any surgery.

Makeup can give you the power to look like a celebrity. Depending on how good your makeup skills are, you can look like Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian, Cleopatra or whoever you want to be.

With millions of videos and tutorials on how to perfect and make you look like an airbrushed top model, it is definitely a woman’s not-so-secret super power. 

But then, many people also contradict that makeup just cover up the imperfections deep under the layers of cosmetics. Without makeup, most women feel naked and vulnerable.

With all the calls to get real and be confidently beautiful, how can women look good without makeup naturally? Do we really have to succumb and play slaves to the hottest trend in makeup and the cosmetic world? Or is there a way to make us feel better without having to apply layer upon layer of maquillages?

There are also instances wherein you have to go bare-faced. Who swims with a full-on makeup, complete with winged-tip liners and contours? 

There are those who also apply makeup when going to the gym or going hiking (“Oh, hello clogged pores!”).

Let’s face it, you can’t wear makeup all the time.

So instead of devising ways to sneak a hint of makeup on your skin, why not improve the quality of your skin and figure out other ways to make you look prettier sans the makeup?

Exfoliate your skin

Do you ever wonder why your skin looks tired, old and lacks the glow it used to have?

It might be lodged with dead skin cells that just waits to be buffed away. If you haven’t been exfoliating, now is the time to incorporate this into your weekly skin care routine.

You may exfoliate once or up to 3x a week depending on your skin type.

Beauty experts advise that you avoid scrubs with walnut shell powder because it causes microscopic tears in the skin that paves the way for acne-causing bacteria to penetrate the skin.

Go for gentler scrubs that can cleanse not just the top layer of the skin, but can penetrate the pores for an efficient cleansing. If you are acne-prone, go for facial cleansers with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to help get rid of acne-causing bacteria. 

Trophy Skin Pro Tip:

Microdermabrasion is also a great way to exfoliate your skin. We recommend our 4 devices namely UltradermMD, MicrodermMD, RejuvadermMD and MiniMD

These FDA-cleared devices use diamond-embedded tips that safely and lightly abrade the skin to remove dead skin.

The mechanical abrasion lifts dead skin cells, impurities, gunk and oil and the suction machine vacuums all these to be collected in a wool filter. You will be shocked to see how much gunk you can get out of a 5-minute treatment using a personal microdermabrasion product!

Aside from lifting dead skin, microdermabrasion also helps flatten acne scars, improve hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone and get rid of dark spots and discolorations.

It supports collagen production and improves circulation on the skin being treated.

Although the price might seem high for an average Jane (or Joe), if you have been getting professional microdermabrasion treatments, you would understand how much you are actually saving! 

Instead of paying $100-$150 per session of professional microdermabrasion at a spa, getting your own device will cost you just about $70-$349.  

You get unlimited microdermabrasion. You get to own the device. 

No more setting of appointments in medical spas, you do not have to be stuck in traffic getting there, all you need is just 5 minutes and you can buff away all the dead skin that makes your skin look dull and lifeless, at the comfort of your personal space or home.

Aside from the unlimited access to your very own at home microdermabrasion tool, the best thing about owning this machine is that it makes your other skin care products work better.

Admit it, we like to splurge on expensive, high-quality serums and moisturizers to keep our skin in tip top shape.

The great thing about microdermabrasion is that we are sure that our skin care products get into the skin layers that need it most, not just sitting on the top dead layers that eventually shed off.

So, you are making the most out of the products that you invest in.

With continued use, microdermabrasion will improve the skin texture. You will notice that your makeup will sit on better and with all honesty, you will find that you like wearing less and less makeup in time.

This is the best investment you can have for your skin. 

moisturize your skin daily

Moisturize daily

Several factors affect the moisture level in our skin such as weather, hormones, and skincare products that we use.

After washing the face with a facial wash, we need to lock in the moisture by using a moisturizer. If you follow a skincare regimen, wash-tone-serum-moisturize-spf, you may do so but don't skip the moisturize part.

After exfoliation or microdermabrasion, the new layers of skin need to be pampered and adequately cared for too. It is important to moisturize your skin to avoid getting flaky, dry, and rough-feeling skin.

Do not skimp applying moisturizers.

Have you noticed plants that are adequately hydrated compared to plants left to wither? In a way, that is what is happening to our skin too. If we do not put the moisture back in our skin, we will look like a wilting plant.

A skin that is adequately moisturized look healthier and it reflects light better, making you look like you are glowing. It's a misconception that people with oily skin do not need to apply moisturizer. Oil is different with moisture.

If you have oily skin, go for products that are water-based or gel-based. These are usually non-comedogenic or it will not block the pores so you do not have to worry about having breakouts.

Remember, if your skin is dry, your system will overcompensate and produce more oil and sebum that can worsen your skin condition.

It might lead to more breakouts and more possibility of having acne. Make it a habit of applying a good-quality moisturizer after cleansing or exfoliating your face.

Use serums

Serums are equivalent to skin food that deliver nutrients directly to the skin. It contains high concentrations of skin-boosting ingredients that help improve the skin and give it the pampering it deserves. 

There are many high-quality serums available in the market but one we like the most is our very own Argan Stem Cell Anti-Aging Serum. This lightweight serum is invigorated with Argan stem cells known to reverse signs of aging and kindle the skin’s natural repair processes. 

It also contains hyaluronic acid that provides an ultra-moisturizing effect to plump the skin. It is rich in antioxidants such as algae extract, mugwort extract, and green tea extract. These ingredients penetrate the skin layers to restore, protect and rejuvenate the skin.

With continued use, Argan Stem Cell Serum can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and lessen age spots.

It can protect and nourish the skin, increase skin firmness, tighten and refine pores, support collagen & elastin production and repair sun damage.

This small bottle is indeed a miracle worker and a modern day fountain of youth in a bottle. Use it after doing microdermabrasion to help nourish the newly surfaced skin.
