5 Ingredients You Can Find at Home to Keep Your Skin Flawless
To maintain your natural glow, it pays to develop healthy beauty habits at home. The good news is, you can actually use some very basic inexpensive ingredients which are readily available in your kitchen to enjoy fairer more flawless skin. If you enjoy getting regular facials (like me!), using these simple ingredients and adding them to your regular regimen, will surely provide you with more effective and faster results.
Here are 5 ingredients commonly found in your home which you can use:
FACT: The Skin is the largest organ. Just like any other part of the body, our skin is made up of cells. Skin cells, like any other cell in the body, are made up of water. Without it, our organs will certainly not function properly.
The lack of hydration will result to dry skin, as well as making it tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling.
As water is lost in large quantities every day, you need to replace it somehow. Keep hydrated. Make it a habit to drink more water. Drinking at least 10 glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins.
Did you know that milk is Queen Cleopatra‘s famous beauty secret to her flawless complexion?
Here are some of the benefits we can get from milk:
– makes the face look more radiant.
– smoother skin
– prevents premature aging
– shrinks pores
– cures irritation
– reduces irritation and allergic reactions
– helps heal wounds
– nourishes and softens the skin
– exfoliates dead skin cells
Here are 2 recipes you can make at home:
Creating radiant skin: Simply mix 2 tablespoons of powdered milk, 1 tablespoon honey and 2 tablespoons of warm water. Apply on face and neck, allow it to dry and stiff. After settling, rinse with warm water.
Cleopatra’s Milk bath: Add 1 cup of powdered milk to your bath water. This is believed to nourish and soften the skin when done regularly.
3. Calamansi a.k.a. Calamondin
Calamansi is known in effectively lightening dark spots due to its high vitamin C content. These can easily be bought in groceries and markets and are quite inexpensive as compared with lemons.
Aside from skin lightening, you can also use calamasi as a deodorizer. Calamansi when used will prevent your armpits from perspiring and will also help keep it odor-free.
4. Olive Oil
Despite what we tend to think about oils…olive oil is not really bad for you. In fact, it contains monounsaturated fats and unsaturated fats that are known to bolster cardiovascular health. It may also be a beneficial addition to your beauty regimen.
– protects you from developing skin cancer
– soothes chapped lips
– has an antibacterial effect against bacteria
Sugar is one of the best natural beauty ingredients to exfoliate your skin. Add sugar to lemon juice and honey to prepare a simple yet effective scrub for your skin. Sugar scrubs are mild and help gently remove dead skin cells. They also help rejuvenate the skin by cleaning all the dirt from pores.
A scrub of brown sugar and olive oil is very helpful in keeping the skin soft and supple. Olive oil has Vitamin E and Omega-3 fatty acids that naturally moisturize the skin plus, brown sugar also removes dirt and unclogs pores.
Of course, aside from using these natural ingredients, it’s still important to regularly visit a trusted skin professional such as Flawless to ensure you are getting the right treatments for your skin type and to maintain your youthful glow!
