Many women love skin care products and might spend a lot of money on them in hoping to reduce wrinkles, soften their skin, etc. But, did you know that some of the products that you keep in your kitchen can be used as natural skin care products? The article “8 Natural Beauty Savers – Giveaway!” by Care2 list a few natural helpers.
- Honey- This is the best natural hydration you can offer your skin to keep it glowing to its max.
- Oatmeal-With soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, oatmeal has beta glucan, a soluble fiber that creates a thin, moisture-retaining film on the surface of the skin. Oatmeal also makes an excellent gentle exfoliator when boiled and mixed with milk and soothes irritated skin especially after sun exposure.
- Argan Oil- Abundant unsaturated fatty acids help balance moisture levels for excessively dry skin and hair, and the antioxidant vitamin E protects skin from further damage. The phytosterols repair by boosting collagen formation.
- Oranges and Lemons- Use them for dead skin exfoliation and scar treatments. Make a scrub with granulated sugar, olive oil and orange juice and rub it into your elbows, knees and heels with the orange skin to slough off dead skin.
- Eggs- Separate the yolk and the white and whip the egg white until it is frothy. Apply it to your face and wash off after 15 minutes to tone down redness and tighten pores.
- Beer- Beer can pump up and volumize flat hair. The yeast and hops swell the hair shaft and plump the cuticle, adding volume. The acidity removes built up product residue.
- Strawberries-One of the richest sources of antioxidant vitamin C, strawberries can be used on your skin in many forms. So, try making a strawberry cleanser. Extract some strawberry juice and mix it with few drops of rose water. Spread the mixture on your face and gently rub. Once you have cleaned the skin, just rinse it off with cold water.
- Lavender Oil- Sprinkle some on your pillow for a night of uninterrupted beauty sleep!
