Looking for that perfect beauty facial skin care tip? How about going “all natural”? There are a growing number of experts (doctors, nutritionists, cosmeticians, etc) who believe that anything you put on your face should be natural and safe enough to eat.
Practically all cosmetics contain preservatives and other chemicals that can be absorbed through your pores. Since, some of the common ingredients are known to cause cancer, rubbing them all you’re your face or anywhere on your body, really doesn’t seem like a good idea. With that in mind, we found five masks that you can cook up right in your own kitchen, suggestions for lightening age spots or dark circles and a little advice about buying all natural skin care products.
Beauty Facial Skin Care Tip for the Eyes
You may have seen this in TV shows, but it really works. To lighten dark circles under your eyes, wrap a grated raw potato in cheesecloth and apply to eyelids for 15-20 minutes or you can simply use cucumber slices. You will notice that your eyes feel cooler and when you look in the mirror, you will see less puffiness and dark areas will look lighter. Wipe off the residue and apply a restorative eye gel. The best ones contain COQ10, vitamin E, brown algae and other nourishing ingredients.
Beauty Facial Skin Care Tip to Relieve Dryness
This mask is created using 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 2 of fresh cream. Mix the two together and apply to the face. Wait ten minutes and rinse. It’s very simple, but hydrating and also nourishing. Make sure that both the olive oil and the cream are fresh and contain no added flavorings or preservatives. Use about once a week.
Beauty Facial Skin Care Tip For Excessive Oiliness
Most products on the market are too harsh. They strip away too many of your natural oils that protect your face from the damaging elements. But, when you have excessive oiliness, there are food products that will absorb some of the oil, because they are naturally acidic, thus slightly changing the pH balance.
You can mix a tablespoon of honey with one egg white (not the yolk) and apply thickly to your forehead, neck and other problem areas. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes. Then wash with a mild cleanser.
Honey and egg white are sometimes difficult to mix. You can also use two tablespoons or more of papaya pulp, with at least 10 drops of lemon juice. Apply as you would any other mask. Leave for 20 minutes and then rinse well. You’ll see papaya and avocado masks in the stores, but they contain preservatives and artificial fragrances and colors. Making your own is safer and just as effective.
Any fruit juice contains vitamin C, which is naturally acidic. When used in a facial, they refresh, stimulate circulation, close pores and act as an antioxidant destroying free radicals produced after exposure to the sun. Cooked and mashed carrots and honey can also be used.
Beauty Facial Skin Care Tip for All Skin-types
Honey is one of the best masks, but active manuka honey is the most effective. It can be difficult to find, but is available in one of the better all-natural skincare lines.
Before the honey is applies, you should put a very warm damp towel over your face to open your pores. Following a 20 minute soak in honey, rinse off with warm water. Follow with cold to tighten and close the pores. You can use this about once a week. Yogurt and honey or fruit juice can be mixed together to create a thicker and more nourishing mask. Follow the same directions as above. Use only plain, unflavored yogurt.
Our final beauty facial skin care tip is this; if you are too busy to make your own, look for 100% natural ingredients that nourish, heal and allow the skin-cells to repair themselves. The best products are made by a New Zealand company and sold only directly from the factory, so they cost less than department store varieties.
