The Best Unedited Beauty Advocates

The mask is off.

Although the 'no-photoshop' imagery is gaining speed with companies we have forgotten about the stage even before the photo is edited; MAKE-UP. This, in unedited beauty, is just another form of photoshopping, don't you think? You can totally change your appearance with strategic make-up applications and eye-brow plucking. We say, no photoshop and minimal 'masking'.

Unedited Beauty recognises the amazing trend of women empowering women to take a stand and remove the make-up mask. Female celebrities are snapping themselves 'au naturel' encouraging other women to be confident about their raw & true beauty. Social media has been an amazing viral vehicle for this movement.

Only a few celebs come to mind that not only believe in Unedited Beauty, but continually and constantly push that message out into the world. Cameron Diaz is one of our favourite 'UB' Advocates, she embodies women's inner strength and natural outer beauty; to be truly happy, natural and healthy. Celebrating her first bound book called "Body Book", she posted her naked face along side the book on social media. She explains to the Herald Sun "{The book} was my intention to empower women to make informed choices about nutrition and their physical activity," she discusses her trouble with her skin and appearance throughout her life and urges women to stop the toxic cycle of comparison.
Unedited beauty is about loving yourself, loving your skin and treating it with kindness and respect.

Don't mussel your pores.
We applaud women who don't wear massive 'get lost' sunglasses to hide their minimal make-up or 'masking'. We dare women all of over Australia to go 'one' day without wearing foundation.
Just try it!
Not only will your skin get a much needed break from the pore clogging nasties in make-up but with a proper morning hydration/protection regime your skin will settle into a lovely balanced glow, breathing without the 'mussel' on.

Another one of our favourite unedited beauty advocates is Amber Valletta, a naturally stunning woman we always see rocking the 'Unedited Beauty Look', natural accents, never over applying make-up. She transitioned from modelling to acting and swears by using an SPF product. She never fails to wear her's, even in overcast weather, where in fact, the most skin damaging rays are! 20 years of Vogue editorial shoots and counting!

LaGaia's Daily SPF Creme is so important to skin looking younger for longer. We implore women to start applying an SPF immediately starting as young as possible, I'm talking teenagers! SPF prevent premature ageing, fine lines and cellular damage that causes age spots and pigmentation problems. Do yo wear one?

The final word...natural and photoshop free.
Just because an image is photoshop free doesn't mean its you in your natural state with all the amazing wonders that make-up can do.
To stay Photoshop free for life, its all about pairing it back. Keeping your regime simple and effective. SPF is a key ingredient to keeping your skin looking amazing through your 20's-70's. Don't buy into fad marketing with false promises, the only true results will come from prevention and quality ingredients, this is the unedited beauty way.
