In the search for beautiful, youthful skin, most of us end up overloading it with cosmetics and chemical products that actually cause it a lot of harm. All the beauty aids that you use, the lotions and creams you apply and the makeup that you keep putting on it makes your skin dull and lifeless over time.
I’ve used a lot of beauty products my whole life, so I’m guilty of the same crime. The trouble is that makeup is addictive, and since none of us are born with perfect skin, we have to use some products to look presentable. The best thing that you can do is to find a balance between natural beauty and cosmetic products. With these home made beauty tips, I hope to help you do just that!
Achieve Natural Beauty With Home Made Beauty Tips
I was surprised to learn that most of the ingredients that I use in my kitchen can double as natural beauty aids! Fruits, vegetables, spices and grains, coupled with a daily skin care routine, can make your skin look fabulous. It makes sense, if you think about it that if the food we consume affects our health, using it on our skin can have an impact on its health and beauty too!
Some easy ways to get glowing skin with home made beauty tips are listed below:
- Use eggs for nourishment – The natural proteins found in eggs are excellent rejuvenators for tired skin. Just beat one egg white with the juice of half a lemon, and apply it on your face, avoiding the eyes. Rinse with warm water after 20 minutes. If you use this pack once a week, it will get rid of dullness, and act as a natural toner.
- Make a facial scrub with grains – Grains and pulses are excellent natural scrubs, and their nutritional content pampers your skin. Try grinding a handful of whole pulses in the mixer, then mix enough water to make a thick paste. Gently rub this mix over your face (avoiding the eyes) in circular motions for about 2 minutes, and then rinse off. Your skin’s pores will be clean, dead skin scrubbed off, and a youthful glow is guaranteed!
- Get cool with cucumbers – Cucumbers have natural astringent properties, and if you grate a cucumber, mix it with half a cup of egg-based mayonnaise and use this mixture as a face pack, it tones and tightens your skin, relieving fine lines and wrinkles. The mayonnaise will moisturize and nourish your skin at the same time. Use this pack regularly and your skin will start looking younger in no time!
- Aloe Vera, the Miracle Herb – Aloe Vera is very easy to grow, you can plant it in a pot and keep it in your kitchen or bathroom. The fresh juice from the long fleshy leaves is one of the most popular ingredients for beauty products. Peel a leaf and apply the inner pulp over your face and body every few days to absorb the natural benefits!
