Want to wake up with natural beauty, like, say Penélope Cruz or Gisele Bündchen? Newsflash: You don’t need expensive products, harsh chemicals, and loads of time to get shiny, healthy hair and smoother skin. Natural beauty comes from the basics: good sleep habits, always wearing sunblock, and drinking plenty of water. But some of us, with crazy work schedules and families to care for, are lucky if we are able to wash our face at night.
If your goal is a minimal makeup, natural look, good skin is the key. In an interview with Pop Sugar, Chanel dermatologist Amy Wechsler stresses the importance of getting plenty of sleep, “If you’re not getting enough sleep at night you’ll see it in your skin. You’ll have more fine lines and wrinkles, your skin will appear dull, and it will be drier.” Here are 15 more ways to achieve a natural beauty. Before you know it, your friends will be asking what special procedure or potion you used, and you’ll naturally answer, ‘I woke up like this, darling.’
