It’s Time to Embrace Your Natural Belleza Latina!

Hello my loves! You might remember a post I wrote in May, where I participated in a sponsored campaign with Latina Bloggers Connect and the makers of ZYRTEC®. In that post I shared my tips on how to say goodbye to #ALLERGYFACE. It’s time for part two of the campaign, and this time we’re going to talk about something a little different.

If someone asked you what today’s hottest beauty trend is, what would you say? No it’s not a lipstick color, hair product, and it’s definitely not the latest plastic surgery procedure. It’s all about embracing your Natural Belleza Latina! In other words, my natural beauty!

Natural beauty doesn’t have a clear cut definition. It really is how you interpret it. For me, it’s a state of beauty that hasn’t been altered. It can be a bare face, uncombed hair, and jumping out of bed without a care in the world. It’s what comes from within your heart and soul. It’s something that has been given to you from your mom and those who have come before her. I can tell you, as a Latina, I take pride in all that has been passed down to me.

Here are three easy tips on how you can embrace your natural beauty.

  • Keep your skin moisturized. I apply moisturizer and eye cream immediately after I shower or wash my face and let it set a few minutes before applying anything else.
  • Apply a lip balm before bed. I do this every night, when I wake up in the morning I have naturally soft and supple lips.
  • Make sure to remove any makeup before heading to bed. Let your skin breathe at night and stop any chances of clogged pores, which can cause unneeded breakouts.
  • Last but not least, know that you are beautiful…inside and out! Tell yourself every day! In fact, let me tell you. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

But, let’s be realistic. It’s hard to embrace anything when you’re suffering from allergies. Believe me, I understand the battle. But, there are some things you can do to help when they strike. In the video below, the always beautiful Carmen of Viva Fashion shares her own tips.

    Thankfully I have great genes, but like you I also like to moisturize my skin fresh out the shower when it’s still warm and slightly damp, it absorbs better and leaves with you softer skin. I’m also a fan of using body scrubs for a natural glow and soft skin!
