Ladies, did you know that you can achieve a fresh, smooth glowing skin without spending a dime on skin care products? When all else has failed or you want to live within a budget yet look great, do it the natural way and go back to the basics. Your answer to a beautiful silky look might just be in your kitchen . . .
To combat dry skin, try a mask that includes honey. This natural ingredient is a humectant, meaning that it helps the skin retain moisture and gives it a smooth plump look.
To beat oily skin, try eggs — but only the egg white, which firms up the skin by tightening pores. Egg yolks can be used in face masks but are better suited to dry skin
Slicing a tomato in to half and applying the juice to the face also helps to control excess oil on the face.
When you need to exfoliate, mix a face mask with oatmeal, sugar or cooled coffee grounds for extra scrubbing power. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells that can dull your skin’s appearance. The result is skin that is fresh, smooth and relaxed.
When you think you have exposed yourself to too much sun and are feeling ‘burnt’ apply cucumber to the face and allow to sit for at least fifteen minutes.This cools and relaxes the skin. Each of the ingredients offer some comfort to the skin, plus, the benefits of natural ingredient are endless when applying them to skin care.
