Everybody wants flawless, glowing skin, and many are willing to pay a high price to get it. From going to the spa for a deep-cleaning facial to applying expensive serums and moisturizers, there are many ways to improve skin tone and texture and slow skin aging, budget-permitting.
For those who don`t have the extra cash or time to spend on skin care, there are alternatives. What about trying natural home remedies? Skin care doesn`t have to be complicated or costly. Try these natural solutions for treating and nourishing different skin types. All of the ingredients that you will need are probably sitting somewhere in your own kitchen.
Treating Acne-Prone Skin at Home
What can be done at home to treat acne-prone skin? Apple cider vinegar is one of the best home remedies. Skin benefits from the anti-bacterial properties, as the bacteria that can cause blemishes are destroyed. Apple cider vinegar also helps to balance skin pH, creating a more even tone and smoother appearance.
To use, dab a small amount on blemishes before going to sleep at night. For more sensitive skin, mix equal parts of distilled water and vinegar. Be sure to use only raw, organic apple cider vinegar for the beneficial properties.
Home Remedies: Skin Care for Aging Skin
There are many options for treating aging skin with natural home remedies. Fresh fruits supply antioxidants and alpha-hydroxy acids. Egg whites are a standard anti-wrinkle treatment as they nourish while also refining the skin. Honey helps to hydrate the skin.
Try simply rubbing the inside of a papaya skin or a fresh banana peel on the face for a quick and easy food facial.
Whip up one egg white and one tablespoon of cream. Use as a face mask to refine pores and tighten sagging skin.
Blend grapes, strawberries, or fresh cucumber in the blender with enough honey to make a paste. Apply to the skin and leave on for 15 minutes before washing.
Treating Dry Skin at Home
For dry skin, try applying a nourishing, hydrating face mask two times a week. What can you use from your kitchen? One of my favorites is ripe avocado. High in vitamins C and E and a good source of essential fatty acids, avocado is one of the more effective home remedies. Skin is nourished while at the same time the fatty acids help to soften the skin.
To make an avocado face mask simply mash one-half ripe avocado. Gently cleanse the face and pat with warm water. Smear the avocado onto the skin. Relax for 15 minutes before washing off. You can also add one teaspoon of olive or sweet almond oil to the avocado for extra moisture. For more nutrients, mash a small piece of ripe banana with your avocado.
