Contrary to what society wants us to think, we don’t need to spend a lot of money or use complicated methods in order to care for your skin. Of course, we’re being told the complete opposite by all the marketing materials we find in magazines and see on TV. If you were to believe these ads to be true, you’d then believe that the only way you can have better skin is if you sought the help of doctors and aestheticians. Not only that, we can keep our skin great looking if we use expensive and fancy skin products that are full of chemicals. In reality, though, your kitchen is where you’d find the most effective skin care products. Things like olive oil, oatmeal and fruit are all good for cleansing and healing the skin. Here are some natural skin care products you can make right now, without leaving your house.
If you want a great smelling face mask, you’ll need peaches. Peaches can help your skin a lot. This natural face mask is effective in cleansing and clearing up the skin. In a bowl, mash one half of a ripe peach and mix with yogurt and honey at 1/2 teaspoon each. If your skin is naturally oily, add 1 teaspoon of chick pea powder. Add some dry milk powder if you have skin that’s naturally dry. Once mixed, apply all over your face. Leave it on your face for 30 minutes before rinsing it off. You’ll see the difference afterward.
Here’s a simple acne tonic you can make from water and basil. Boil water and then add a couple teaspoons of dried basil leaves. Let the basil steep in the hot water. Let this steep for no longer than twenty minutes. After the water has gotten cool enough, strain out the leaves and save the tonic in clean, clear and air tight containers. Make sure you wash your face with warm water before using the tonic. Get a white cotton ball and soak it in the tonic. Gently rub the cotton ball on areas of your face that have acne. Don’t rinse off the tonic. As the tonic is absorbed by your skin, the redness and swelling of your acne will be reduced.
Do you have dark circles around or puffiness in your eyes? Rather than using concealer, try putting a couple of cool tea bags over your eyes. Try putting on cucumbers if you don’t have tea bags. These things reduce inflammation and swelling. Tannins are found in tea, which can reduce puffiness. You won’t have to worry too much about the dark circles if the swelling and puffiness around your eyes are greatly reduced. Moreover, your eyes are going to be so much healthier. You can practice good skin care without spending way too much money on costly skin care products and treatments. You can take good care of your skin with the help of natural skin care recipes.
