Having smooth and young looking skin doesn’t happen overnight. Leaving your skin alone won’t cut it either because you are constantly exposed to the weather and other environmental factors. Even the kinds of food that you eat can make or break your skin’s condition. Most people tend to go to beauty salons to get their skin care fix but this tends to come with a pricey tag which may not fit everyone’s budget. Fortunately, maintaining smooth and beautiful looking skin doesn’t have to be that expensive because you can care for it using natural ingredients right in your very home.
As a matter of fact, here are some skin care tips that you can follow.
Filter water. If you don’t want your hair and skin to become dry and dull looking, make sure that you filter your sink and shower. This minimizes the amount of toxins that are being dumped on your body.
Coconut oil and raspberries for lips. Brigher looking lips is possible with just a few home ingredients. The combination of raspberries and coconut oil has been found to be effective in giving your lips the boost it needs to look kissable. Liquefy a tablespoon of coconut oil in a small saucepan in low heat. Once it warms up, remove from heat and add 4 pieces of frozen or fresh raspberries. Mash them until they become smooth. Transfer the mixture in a small container and pop in the fridge. Apply on your lips using your fingers. Make a fresh batch every few days.
Fresh lemon juice. If you want brighter looking skin, fresh lemon juice will do the trick. Get a fresh lemon and cut it in half. Squeeze the juice from the fruit and place it in a bowl. Dip a cotton ball into the lemon juice and apply on your face and neck. Leave it on for a few minutes then wash afterwards. Another technique is to use some yogurt as face mask to get the same results.
Coconut water. Hydrating your skin is a must if you want to preserve its youthful look. Of course, water is going to be on top of your hydrating solution but you can also drink coconut water as well. What’s great about coconut water is that it can help flush toxins that are present in the body which, in turn, can enhance your skin’s overall health.
Tea tree oil. Pimples and acne breakouts can happen from time to time. Fortunately, you can dry them up fast with some tea tree oil. Use a cotton swab and dip it into your tea tree oil then apply on the affected areas. You can do this every few hours to help speed up the healing process. Don’t forget to apply some vitamin B oil on the acne spots at least an hour before bedtime to minimize their appearance on your skin.
Papaya. Exfoliating your skin is necessary to remove any dead skin that may be piling up on the surface of your skin. However, the exfoliating products that we are using nowadays contain chemicals that are doing more harm than good to our skin. A better solution would be to use papaya to clear your skin from any dead skin. You will need to combine ¼ cup of papaya and a tablespoon of fresh pineapple and blend or mash until they are smooth. Apply this to your face and neck and leave it on for a few minutes. Rinse with cool water. Make sure that you do a patch test first especially when you have sensitive skin.
