As we get older, we realize that taking good care of our bodies is essential if we want to prolong our youthful and healthy appearance. It's true that beauty comes from within, but taking extra care of our face is more than welcome. In order to achieve that, we have to change our diet and quit bad habits, and also stick to some natural skincare products. Listed below is a roundup of some very useful all natural products you might want to include in your beauty regimen.
All natural DIY face cleanser
You'll need a handful of chopped cucumbers and some rose water to start. Cucumber is the key ingredient because it's rich in vitamins, and it has a very soothing effect. Also, cucumbers refresh your skin due to their cooling properties. Blend it until you get a green juice, and then pour it into a spray bottle to make it look like a regular face cleanser. Add a castile soap and some essential oils, like eucalyptus or peppermint, and store it in the fridge. Spray the toner on a cotton pad, and clean your face a few times a day.
Honey and lemon face mask
Mix these ingredients in a bowl by squeezing ½ lemon and two tablespoons of honey. Take a warm cloth and put it all over your face to open your pores a little bit. Apply the mask evenly with fingers or a clean makeup brush. Avoid the eye area because of the lemon, so it won't burn your eyes. Wear it for 20 minutes and then wipe it off with a washcloth. You can repeat the same process daily or whenever you need it.
Majority of women can't accept the fact that the aging process is inevitable, and no one has ever escaped from it. Thankfully, getting old isn't that bad, considering there are so many natural anti aging skin care products you can choose from that can help you stay rejuvenated and fresh. They are great for pampering the sensitive skin around your eyes, refining wrinkles and most of them give you a healthy glow.
Bentonite clay mask
Many women swear by this natural face mask because it actually works. Take one tablespoon of bentonite clay, one tablespoon of water and a few drops of apple cider vinegar. Mix it until you get a thick paste. Apply it on your face, neck and your cleavage as well. Leave the mask for 30 minutes and then rinse it with warm water. Clean your face with a soft towel and you'll notice your skin got all glowy and smooth. You can go with this procedure a few times a week. If you are too lazy to make your own clay mask, then you can purchase some pretty affordable products that have the same effect on your skin.
Coffee body scrub
This one's really effective, and there's nothing better than already having all the ingredients at home. You will need half a cup of coffee grounds, one tablespoon of olive oil and two tablespoons of brown sugar. Mix them all together and gently massage your whole body with circular motions. You'll notice how your skin gets smoother and smoother just like baby's bottom. This body scrub is great for removing dead skin and body acne, and it's also believed to fight cellulite. Of course, your cellulite won't disappear by using this scrub only, because you need a healthy diet and a regular exercise regimen first.
Sea salt lip treatment
Due to the overuse of lip liners and different matte liquid lipsticks we apply on a daily basis, our lips start suffering from dryness and end up being chapped. Just like a regular lip balm, lip scrub is pretty effective since it removes the dead skin. It’s easy to make such scrub because you will need only three ingredients. Put a little bit of sea salt in a bowl and mix it with rose water and vegetable glycerin. Apply it on your lips, gently exfoliate and wipe it off after scrubbing. Limit your lip exfoliation to once a week and get ready to smooch.
Now that you have flicked through the list, you can get yourself one of these amazing products and nourish yourself the way you deserve.
