Given the amount of time we spend looking at social media, we have begun to develop a warped sense of what people actually look like. Snapchat and Instagram filters, as well as photo editing apps, have seemingly erased any semblance of authenticity. It is possible, however, to look good in pictures without filtering or even makeup. To celebrate the #nofiltersmile, follow these simple, all-natural steps:
Get a full eight hours of sleep. A good night’s sleep enables your body, mind and skin to rest, recover and repair. In order to relax before laying down, avoid looking at your phone for an hour before bed, spritz your pillows and duvet with a lavender pillow mist and wear an eye mask. A good night’s sleep will allow you to wake up feeling and looking refreshed and rejuvenated.

Follow a strict skincare routine. To maintain healthy looking skin, you need to care for it properly. That includes cleansing every single day, using the right toner for your skin type, and applying a serum. These simple steps will revitalize your skin and give you an enviable glow. Also, be sure to use an SPF moisturiser during the day to prevent sun damage and premature aging. In the evening, apply a night cream, such as retinol, that increases the skin’s repair mode.
Drink plenty of water. Drinking water benefits your skin and your health. The NHS EatWell Guide recommends drinking between six and eight glasses a day, which is very easy. In order to get a head start, drink two glasses during breakfast, keep a glass handy at work, drinking at least four glasses during the day, drink two more during dinner, and before bed have one more. You’ll soon see a difference in your skin.
Practice proper dental care. By using a whitening toothpaste, such as Oral-B’s 3D White Whitening Therapy Enamel Care Toothpaste, you can eliminate surface stains and strengthen and sustain your enamel. Weakened enamel results in yellowing of the teeth, which will dim your smile.
Accentuate your eyes. Aside from your smile, your eyes will be the most visible feature in pictures. Shaping your eyebrows at a brow bar will frame your face more effectively. Also, curling your lashes, will give you bigger and brighter eyes. Finally, if the skin around your eyes is puffy, apply a a cool flannel over your eyes for 15 minutes and you’ll look instantly refreshed.
