Your face is what you show the world, a fresh well kept face looks radiant, energetic and fresh. Not to mention the fact that it is a big confidence booster. You no longer will feel shy of meeting people once your face looks the way it is supposed to. Today maintaining a fresh and energetic face is easier and less time consuming as some might imagine.
The market is flooded with beauty products for every kind of skin type, skin condition, and skin tone. These items can range for the generic brands set at reasonable prices to the top of the line products which can become very expensive. Instead of paying a lot of money to the department stores, have you ever considered making these same products for yourself? It’s true. It can be done and the products you create at home can be just as, if not more, effective than anything you can find on a shelf.
Let’s start with ingredients. Before running off to another store, check your cabinets and refrigerator. Do you have oatmeal? How about yogurt? Great! Now you are all set to make a simple facial cleanser. Just add enough yogurt to a ½ cup of plain oatmeal. Rub gently all over your face. Be careful to keep it out of your eyes. Rinse the mixture off with lukewarm water and viola – you’ve got a cleaning and conditioning facial.
Need to improve the elasticity in your face? Go to the refrigerator and grab an egg. Separate the yolk from the egg white. Put the egg white into a bowl and whip with a manual egg beater. Apply to your entire face and allow it time to dry completely. Rinse the egg from your face with warm water. Can you feel the difference? Your skin should feel tighter and smoother. It really is that easy.
Do you suffer from dry skin? Get the yogurt back out and measure one tablespoon. Mix the yogurt with one tablespoon of honey. Be sure to mix well. Smooth the cream in to your entire face. Do not rinse your face. The mixture will re-hydrate the skin and provide much needed moisture.
Acne plagues not only young teens but older adults as well. For a simple acne treatment at home, try combining one part bran with one part baking soda and add enough water to form a paste. Apply the paste to your entire face and keep the mixture on for about 15 minutes. Use one part apple cider vinegar to eight parts of water to make a rinsing solution to clean the paste from your skin.
Not only are natural beauty remedies inexpensive and easy, they also prevent you from consistently exposing yourself and your skin to unnecessary harsh chemicals which can build up in your body and lead to even bigger issues. There are many places to find creative ways to produce your own beauty products, even your Grandma may have some tips of her own.
Regardless, of what your concerns and problem areas are, you can have a little fun experimenting with your own ingredients and ideas.
Even if you opt to buy off the shelve products make sure that they are made from natural ingredients and don’t contain synthetic or chemical ingredients. Also take a look at the directions of use and the warning label if there is one to make sure that it does not cause any side effects or is just limited to use on a few skin types. This will ensure that you never run into trouble when using off the shelve products. However only use off the shelve products if you don’t have the time to prepare these for yourself at home.
