With so many products out there on the market today it’s often really hard to decide what to use in order to make your skin look beautiful. Also, it’s difficult to choose because often times they are filled with so many ingredients that may not be good for you. This is why you might want to consider using home remedies for beautiful skin instead. This is especially true if you have sensitive skin like I do.
No matter what kind of skin you have, you really should make sure to gently clean your skin. This is especially true if you have more sensitive skin. So, if you have sensitive skin you should try to avoid most of the bar soaps on the market on your face. These soaps can dry and even irritate your skin. You may just want to wash your sensitive skin with warm water and nothing else if you skin is super sensitive.
You can use your own natural cleanser and the one I have here is one of my favorite home remedies for beautiful skin. Below is how you make it:
¼ cup of castor oil
½ cup of grapeseed oil
¼ cup of jojoba oil
15 drops of tea tree oil
Take and mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Take a wire whisk to mix them well and then store the cleanser in a clean jar with a lid.
To use this as one of your own home remedies for beautiful skin just wet the tips of your fingers with the homemade cleanser and massage it gently on your face for at least one minute. Next run some hot water and use a clean washcloth and get it wet. Put the washcloth on your face and leave it there until it cools off. Repeat this process one more time and then wipe the cleanser off your face. Pat dry your face with a clean and dry towel.
The toners you buy in the store can be super harsh on your skin, especially the face that’s why there are home remedies for beautiful skin that include homemade toners. At least with making your own you know what’s in the product. Here are a few recipes that make for great home remedies for beautiful skin that you might really enjoy. There are several here so you can decide which ones you like the best.
Cider Vinegar – Just take and mix three parts water to one part cider vinegar and splash it on your face. That’s all there is to it, making it one of the easiest home remedies for beautiful skin.
Aloe Vera Toner – Here take a little bit of aloe vera gel and mix it in a blender with some water until it’s mixed good. This is one of the more soothing home remedies for beautiful skin and it’s even great for men to use after they’ve finished shaving.
Lemon Toner – Just take a fresh lemon and squeeze a few drops of the juice into a few ounces of water and then just pat this natural toner on your skin with a clean washcloth. Just keep it away from your eyes. This is one of those home remedies for beautiful skin that can actually help to lighten up any age spots you might have. Also, the vitamin C in the lemon is wonderful for your skin.
Green Tea Toner – If you’re looking for a toner that’s also an antioxidant, then this is one of the home remedies for beautiful skin that you might want to put on your list. Just steep a bag of green tea in a cup of hot water for several minutes, cool it down or add some ice to it and then splash this toner directly on your face. You’ll immediately feel how soothing and even energizing this one can be. You can also take the used tea bag and apply that to your face because it will act as a healing agent for your skin.
Lemon and Peppermint Toner – This is one of those home remedies for beautiful skin that smells beautiful too. Just take and steep a bag of peppermint tea in a cup of hot water and then cool it off or like with the green tea add some ice. Then add a drop of fresh lemon juice to it. This is an extremely cooling and refreshing toner that you and your skin will love.
You can get either one of these home remedies for beautiful skin from a health food store:
Shea Butter – This is wonderful for your skin. It’s extremely moisturizing and believe it or not it really isn’t greasy unless of course you use too much of it on your skin. Since very little goes a long way this is something that will last you a long time. It’s also great for very sensitive skin.
Cold Pressed Avocado Oil – This just feels wonderful on your skin and it’s extremely soothing and nourishing for all skin types but especially for those who have super sensitive skin. Some people think it’s a little greasy but it’s actually a lot less greasy than most of the other natural oils out there. It’s a wonderful natural oil to use all over your body and I personally like using it before going to bed. You do this and you’ll be amazed at how soft your skin will be the next day!
One of my favorite home remedies for beautiful skin is to use yogurt as a gentle exfoliant. I just take and put on one tablespoon of organic plain yogurt on my face. I gently rub it all over my face and then let it sit there for a few minutes and then rinse it off. It’s the lactic acid in it that gently exfoliates your skin.
