Victoria’s Secret angel Candice Swanepoel was named one of 2014’s sexiest women in the world by Maxim magazine, and she’s definitely deserving of the honor.
The blonde bombshell definitely hit the genetics lottery with her icy blue eyes and her long, slender thighs. Sadly, there’s no magic serum that will bless the rest of us with the angel’s flawless body and face, but maybe we can snag her gorgeous skin.
The Maxim’s Hot 100 topper told Vogue the secret to getting her glow, and it’s rather simple. “I use coconut oil as lotion and rosewater spray to keep my skin hydrated,” she said. Coconut oil is a one of the best natural beauty products that money can buy. I’ve successfully used it as moisturizing hair mask, a face and body moisturizer, and even a mouth rinse (it will make your teeth feel squeaky clean!). It’s pretty versatile stuff, and it has a wonderful tropical scent.
Rosewater is also a natural beauty wonder that smells amazing. to keep your skin looking nice and dewy, try putting it a fine mist spray bottle. You can spritz your skin with the hydrating spray whenever it starts to look dull and dry.
Candice Swanepoel isn’t the only pretty lady who prefers a beauty routine that’s natural and simple. The sexiest, most desirable, and most beautiful women of 2014 also have natural beauty secrets worth trying. Here’s a look at their best beauty tips:
Try an exotic-sounding oil
You’ve probably heard of using olive oil, coconut oil, and argan oil as hair and body moisturizers. However, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o prefers a different slick substance. People magazine’s most beautiful woman revealed that she uses Hawaiian kukui oil to give her skin that gorgeous glow. It’s a versatile oil that can be used to soothe chapped lips, moisturize skin, and treat acne. You can also mix it with brown sugar to create an exfoliating scrub. If you can’t find Hawaiian kukui oil at a health food store near you, try using Lupita’s other favorite skin soother — she’s also a fan of avocado oil.
Drink dandelion tea
Of course Katniss would have a few cool natural beauty secrets — she does know how to live off the land. FHM’s sexiest woman in the world for 2014, the incomparable Jennifer Lawrence, sips on dandelion tea to get her body red carpet-ready. Trainer Dalton Wong explained why Jen drinks weeds during an interview with Grazia Daily. “Dandelion tea is a brilliant diuretic so helps to prevent water retention and flush out toxins,” he said. It’s not the only floral beverage that J-Law gulps down to get ready for a big event — she likes to de-stress by enjoying a soothing cup of chamomile tea. The night before she has to rock the red carpet in a figure-hugging gown, she also de-bloats and relaxes by taking an Epsom salt bath.
Put those tweezers down
Askmen.com’s most desirable woman of 2014, “Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke, has one of easiest natural beauty secrets to try. The actress has incredible eyes, so who can blame her for wanting to frame them? Emilia told Allure that she has her mother to thank for the bold brows that perfectly balance out her flawless face. “My mom had rules when I was growing up: Don’t do drugs, don’t have sex, and don’t touch your eyebrows,” she revealed. “So I got bullied as a kid for having ridiculous eyebrows. She said, ‘You’ll be thankful when you’re older,’ and I am.” Interestingly, Emilia is also a fan of Epsom salt baths.
To recap, here’s how you become one of the sexiest women in the world: slather yourself in oil, drink a ton of tea, let your eyebrows go wild, and unwind with a nightly Epsom salt bath. Simple, right?
