Hollywood stars and social media influencers are ditching their makeup and flooding their feeds with #NoMakeupSelfie.
As fans applaud stars for their courage to flaunt their pristine looks, Nicole Sherwin, the founder of Eco Diva Natural – Superfood Skincare, says the trend should go beyond just going bare.
“This trend is not just about celebrities showcasing their authenticity, but it also highlights the importance of nourishing and maintaining healthy, glowing skin through superfood-infused skincare routines,” said Sherwin .
“Celebrities are under constant pressure to look flawless, which often requires hours of makeup.
“The recent paradigm shift sees stars like Pamela Anderson, Alicia Keys, Zendaya and Gwyneth Paltrow choosing to bare it all, sharing their makeup-free moments with the world. It’s about embracing authenticity and encouraging others to do the same.
Sherwin goes on to say that the trend has proven that with the right skincare regimen and a focus on self-care, you can feel stunning without makeup.
However, achieving that radiant, no-makeup glow requires effort and dedication.
One key is opting for skincare that is 100% natural, cruelty-free, and infused with plant-based superfoods.
The term “superfoods” refers to nutrient-rich foods that are beneficial for your skin and overall health.
These foods are packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals that help nourish and rejuvenate your skin.
Some common superfoods for skin care include:
Rich in healthy fats and vitamin E, it provides deep hydration, reduces inflammation and promotes a youthful complexion.
Its anti-inflammatory properties help fight acne and brighten skin, leaving you with a natural glow.
• Green tea
Rich in antioxidants, green tea helps reduce redness, soothe the skin and fight the signs of aging.
Rich in antioxidants and pro-aging vitamins, it nourishes the skin when applied topically and ingested.
• Chia seeds
These seeds are abundant in omega-3 fatty acids, which help repair the skin barrier and maintain its moisture balance.
• Aloe vera
Known for its soothing properties, it helps calm irritated skin and promotes healing.
“Incorporating these superfoods into your skincare routine can help you achieve a healthy, glowing complexion,” she said. “But it’s not just about what you put on your skin; it’s also about what you avoid.
Natural skin care involves avoiding harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and other irritants that can damage your skin in the long term.
Many brands now offer clean, natural skincare lines that harness the power of natural ingredients to enhance your skin’s natural beauty.
“I healed my skin from pigmentation, adult acne and rosacea about 14 years ago by nourishing my skin with herbal skincare, taking care of my gut health and ensuring that that my stress level is always under control,” Sherwin said.
“I had clear, healthy skin, but I didn’t have the confidence to go out without makeup because of all the societal conditioning. I’m so happy that embracing our natural selves is now a trend, because all that heavy hiding is pretty exhausting.
In conclusion, Sherwin said the trend isn’t about running away from the makeup industry, but rather about having the choice to go without it.
“It’s about feeling beautiful and confident without layers of cosmetics,” she said. “True beauty comes from self-confidence and self-acceptance.”
