Donning a glowing, healthy-looking skin eliminates the need to buy wide breath of beauty products including an erase cream to mask imperfections and flaws. Beauty experts have always been clear about their view that good skin is the best makeup a woman could wear.
It is, therefore. Not surprising to find pools of women swarming around spas and salons. Some spend grandiosely on treatments to achieve spotless and praise-worthy skin. Truth is no one really needs to exhaust a bank account to come at par with the beauty icons. The home made facial treatments solution may just be hidden in the cabinet right inside the kitchen.
Skin regimens should have cleansing, toning, exfoliating and moisturizing the face and body. Women who find the products a little too expensive may consider scouring through their groceries to find skin care recipes that may just be more effective than commercial products found in the market.
The most vital step in whipping out homemade skin products is formulating the cleanser based on specific skin type: dry, normal, oily or combination. Making the cleaner tailored to the skin can effectively clear out toxins that the body released during sleep, along with the dirt and grit that accumulated during the day.
For women with oily skin, beauty experts recommend using two tablespoons of baking soda and mixing it with tomato or lemon juice. The paste should be evenly and gently scrubbed into the face and neck using the fingertips.
Another alternative is the mixture of one teaspoon of honey, one teaspoon of powdered skim milk, and three or four drops of apple vinegar.
Women with more items in their grocery baskets may also be able to find half a cup of buttermilk and two tablespoons of crushed fennel seeds. A double boiler can be used to simmer the mixture for at least 30 minutes. After the solution cools out (take about three hours), it should be strained and placed in a bottle. Keeping the recipe inside the fridge can make it last for a couple of days.
Milk and lemon are also one of the most popular ingredients of homemade cleansers. The process simply takes dipping a cotton ball in a bowl of milk, applying it to the face, and leaving it dry before washing with a mixture of lemon juice and lukewarm water.
Making the toners is the next step to a healthier and more radiant skin, as they balance and rehydrate while assisting the absorption of vital nutrients. A bag of peppermint tea mixed with two teaspoons of witch hazel, a teaspoon of lemon juice and warm water makes a good homemade toner.
If peppermint tea is not available, one can simply use three teaspoons of dried bee balm leaves boiled to make tea.
The last step is to exfoliate the skin using safe and natural face scrubs to remove dead skin cells. This should do the trick of giving a noticeable glow from a soft and supple skin.
Start by getting four large strawberries and two tablespoons of brown sugar. The fruits should be mashed in a large bowl and mixed with sugar. The solution will be applied in the face in an upward circular motion three times a week. This skin care recipe is known as effectively keep out acne.
The cheapest yet most effective facial scrub is the mixture of lemon juice and sea salt. The paste will be applied in the face and body in a circular upward motion and left for not more than five minutes before washing thoroughly with warm water. Believe me you will have an amazing skin care recipe without any money!
